The pace is natural and so is the dialogue and Ms Higgins manages to strike a balance between the narrative, the dialogue and the action. She also succeeds in creating an atmosphere-you can smell the homemade food in aunt Zuella's kitchen and feel the cat purring in Jacob’s apartment. The humour in the dialogue makes the reading more pleasant; the romantic subplot make us even more involved in the story.
Towards the end, I found myself turning the pages fast, wanting to get to the solution, which, thankfully was logical and plausible and if we had payed attention to the clues, we might have managed to guess.
As the book’s cover says, “Unringing the Bell” is the first story in the continuing Bucks County Mysteries series-I will look forward to the second one!
This stand-alone has a surprise ending. There are formatting errors which occasionally make it difficult to follow. No graphic violence or drag-you-down drama.
Intriguing storyline that keeps the reader guessing. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking dialogue.
No desire to re-read this story. I am interested in other works by this author.
Gossip sessions, reminiscing, and ambling background stories often slow the story. The pace picks up as the mystery begins to be resolved, and characters travel to cities in order to investigate.
The characters are well-drawn, but with the usual small town stereotypes amongst the secondary characters. The world-traveling MC is likable as are members of his family, including his godfather who is a Pennsylvania State Police detective.
The beginnings of a romance feels uncomfortable from MC’s POV, because he has prickly history with the woman, who also happens to be related to the possible murderer.
The ending is nicely done with all threads tied off.
