This series is a wonderful treat for those who miss having new books by Tony Hillerman. Much like HIllerman, Sandi Ault writes beautiful descriptions of the southwest landscape, and delves into the cultures of the region, through her characters and mysteries. Jamaica Wild is an agent with the B...

Fifteen Minutes to Live (2013)
3.36 of 5 Votes: 1
Yet another entry into my 2015 Reading Challenge (A book with a number in the title), Fifteen Minutes to Live was certainly my favorite thus far. I always try to review sans-spoilers, and I think with this book, that may be kind of tough. I will simply say that there was a LOT happening story-wis...
Henry Wood Detective Agency (2000)

I must say I was a bit disappointed with this one. I believe it is a perfect example of the instruction that is given to those who study writing. An author should be himself or herself. Never attempt to write in a style of another, particularly a well-known writer. Stephen King has advised th...
Honestly Dearest, You're Dead (2009)
3.57 of 5 Votes: 5
I enjoyed the story because Dek Elstrom is certainly a flawed "hero" and I don't often get to read mysteries set in southwestern Michigan. I know that I had a hard time following the twists clearly with the dead bodies and set up for visitors which almost made me put it down, except that I wanted...

Shades of Murder (2012)

Wow, another good read from Lauren Carr. Book #3 again had me hooked from page one. Loved the storyline and as in books #1 and #2, I thought for sure I had things figured out but things kept twisting and turning to throw me in another direction. Sure was a lot of hanky panky going on in the bo...
Shoe Done It (2011)
3.03 of 5 Votes: 2
The writing in itself was fine, but the mystery or at least the villain was obvious (at least to me) and the sense of place seemed off. My main issue was that the characters weren’t really that likable. Grasping, shallow fashionistas, not really anyone I could relate to and I do like clothes ...

Mid Ocean (2009)
4.12 of 5 Votes: 2
I didn't get it. I know other reviewers rated it highly but I really struggled through this book. There was lots of info about boats and a huge cast of characters some of whom seemed to have little or no relevance to the story. It was a very intricate plot - unfortunately most of it didn't seem ...
Paper Daughter (2010)
3.46 of 5 Votes: 3
It's so refreshing to read a book with no bad language and nothing inappropriate. Also, the whole plot wasn't revolved/focused around/on romance, and to me, that's a relief, because by itself, this story sucked me in and didn't let go 'till the end. Although I tried, I didn't guess the right deta...
