  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 1/6/2014

    " This is the first in the Irene Kelly series and it wasn't a bad first. The characters were good and there was a lot of action at first, some lulls but not bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cori in WA | 12/22/2013

    " First in the series, a fun read. I saw on B & N that folks who buy some of my favorite authors also bought the Irene Kelly books. Worth reading! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teresa | 12/17/2013

    " I just couldn't get hooked into this one. It couldn't keep my attention. I didn't even finish it. That rarely happens where I allow myself to quit in the middle of a book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanne | 12/11/2013

    " listened to about 3/4 and then due to technical difficulties, not able to finish. Okay book, not great...might try again once I get a new 'device". 7/31 - finished it. I stand by the 2star rating. I figured out the murderer half way through... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Haley | 12/6/2013

    " This book was good. It is always a good sign when a book keeps you interested even if it is not your "cup of tea". This book had too much emphasis on the lavishly rich & their transgressions, but for some reason I still kept reading. Not the worst, but definitely not the best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha Grace | 11/22/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 4/11/2013

    " I was definitely interested in the storyline, but I think I figured the mystery out too quickly. And honestly, as interested as I was in the story, I felt unsatisfied by the end "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judymc66 | 2/21/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen Rendahl | 9/18/2011

    " A fun mystery series! I always like reading the first book in a series first so I was willing to start with this one even though it was written wayyyyy back in 1993. Good snappy dialogue. A complicated (but not TOO complicated) plot and just enough romance to satisfy my girly self. "

    " Really like this. Good pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 6/29/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frank Spinney | 5/2/2011

    " This is the first of the Irene Kelly mysteries. I love this series. I could not put this book down once I started it. I have since read all the books in the Irene Kelly series and have yet to be disappointed. "

    " I enjoyed the book, only gave it a 3 star rating because it is so similiar to many other books. Good book to grab for a day at the beach, a who-dun-it very similiar to Sue Graftons books. You cannot help but like the Irene Kelly character. "
