(2nd in Henrie O Mystery series)

Henrietta O'Dwyer Collins, known to her friends as Henrie O, is America's favorite ex-journalist turned sleuth. These days she's looking forward to a quiet holiday at a wealthy friend's mountain cabin in Tennessee. Instead, Henrie O finds herself in the middle of another murder mystery -- this time in the well-heeled neighborhood of Fair Haven. Married to the daughter of a prominent citizen, her friend's nephew appears one morning covered in his wife's blood -- but he swears he didn't kill her. The killing draws Henrie into the lives of the town's best families, and into a world where privilege masks a hotbed of sex, lies, and desperation. But when another corpse turns up, Henrie O knows time is running out. Now she must untangle a deadly web of deceit - or become the next victim of an unknown killer.

    " This is a fun murder mystery novel. I couldn't decide who the murderer was, and was left surprised near the end. I like this book and look forward to reading more books by Carolyn Hart. "

    " If you like Murder She Wrote, you'll like this book. A great story about an older female non-detective who solves crimes. Recommended for a fun read. "

    " Meh. A page turner, for sure, but predictable and I really didn't relate to the main character at all. It was o.k. "

    " Another great mystery with Henrie O. I am usually fairly good at figuring out "whodunnit" type books but Carolyn Hart has a wonderful way of twisting what you might think is fact. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadine | 5/11/2012

    " I liked this one (#2) better than the first one in the series! The heroine is down to earth and methodical, although she did do a least one pretty stupid thing: pretending to be the Aunt of Craig, the accused murderer. "
