Annie Darling is thrilled at the opportunity to visit the luxurious private island estate of wealthy Jeremiah Addison with her hubby, Max. Unfortunately, Addison won’t be there to greet them since he is quite dead. Evidence suggests that the despised curmudgeon’s death was no accident, and his sister-in-law has invited back everyone who was in attendance during the victim’s last weekend—as well as sleuth Max Darling, there to uncover the killer.

    " A little predictable, but an enjoyable quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 9/1/2013

    " I had a hard time getting into this book and I used to love the Annie and Max Darling mysteries. I hate to say it but I think they've become formulaic. But a good afternoon read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Katzner | 8/3/2013

    " A fund murder mystery series I like that takes place on a fictional island in South Carolina. This one was better than a few of the more recent ones. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 6/26/2013

    " the usual Carolyn Hart fare, fun, readable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 2/13/2013

    " 4- Death on an island with all the suspects stranded. Likeable Max and Annie detecting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy Spicer | 2/8/2013

    " Knew I liked the author and the book held it's own even though I read it out of series order. There's a few things about the characters I'm not sure of, but it didn't affect the story at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 2/2/2013

    " I love her books, but I have figured out every one of them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Farah | 1/17/2013

    " It doesn't say much for the book when even I figured out the whodunit person before s/he's revealed in the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shauna | 7/5/2012

    " After a break in reading this series, it was fun to get back to it and see that it is as good as ever. Well written, quick and easy to read. A nice mystery series. In this one Annie and Max are stranded on an island with a small group--one of whom is a murderer! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 11/2/2011

    " Very nice read from Carolyn Hart, as usual. Her mysteries are told from a female's perspective, similar to the Sue Grafton series. I personally think the plot construction of the Hart novels are comparable to Grafton, but Hart's writing style is superior with better character development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 9/29/2011

    " I thought this one of the best of the Death on Demand series. I didn't figure out the murderer until the end. I did miss the references to other mystery writers and their books. There were a few, but I would have liked more "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Missy | 5/14/2011

    " I wish I was Annie Darling. I think Hart created a near perfect character with her, by this I mean all my personal aspirations. This book was not set in her bookstore (too bad), but it was still a good traditional mystery set on an island. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 9/10/2010

    " This was another good entry in the series. It was a little different because many of the regular characters in the series weren't in this book very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky Beltz | 11/8/2009

    " Cozy murder mysteries set out of a bookstore "Death On Demand." "

    " Loved that the book has a bookstore called "Death on Demand" bookstore, and that there were "titled" coffee mugs that connected to the pictures on display in the store!

    Definitely sounded like somewhere I'd like to hang out!
