Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 2/14/2014

    " These dazzling sister of mystery come up with another good read. We go back to 1990 (I usually HATE prequels, but this one was fun and informed us about the characters) when Nina is still a legal aid and going to school. Her son's suspected father is killed which starts Nina on her career as a superior mystery solver. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 2/14/2014

    " Nuthin' special, but good enough to finish. I didn't know this was a pre-quel when I grabbed it at the libe. There's a whole series where the main character is a lawyer. In this one she is still a paralegal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 2/13/2014

    " While I liked this book, it was slow and hard to get into... then when it picked up, there was too much info and almost too many threads. I do think it may have been a good intro to the Nina Reilly series by the O'Shaughnessy sisters--we'll see as I head into them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Walt | 2/8/2014

    " O'Shaughnessy offers some surprising twists. Engaging characters, intriguing plot "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 1/30/2014

    " Backstory to an established series, and not very well done. Hey, if I can figure it out early on... And a clunky fight scene at the end. But interesting characters may inspire you to take a look at the other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/23/2014

    " I jumped from suspecting one person to another and then another, including the actual perp. This one kept me guessing until the end. Quite the page-turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia B | 1/14/2014

    " I like this series. This is the newest edition to a long list of books about Nine Reilly, a single mom/attorney. Most of the books are set in Lake Tahoe, but this one takes place before she arrives in Tahoe. These are good, no brainer lawyer/mystery novels. Not great literature but an entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/13/2014

    " Since it was a prequel, I knew Nina survived. Most of the backstory came from other books so it seems a lazy way to write. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gaurett | 12/19/2013

    " I really like their mystery books. This one is set in Carmel area. I like Nina Reilly "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurel-Rain | 12/18/2013

    " I liked this book, though would have liked to have read it sooner. It explains a lot of the Nina Reily series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 7/25/2013

    " I have read some books by this author before that I liked better. This one just didn't keep my interest as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaylie Flewin | 12/20/2012

    " This is an okay book. I found that the plot did not really grab me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Su | 9/11/2012

    " I really didn't care for any of the characters in this mystery which made it a difficult book to enjoy! I found most of the story line to be unrealistic, especially the person who turned out to be the murderer. Nah, I didn't like it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 7/21/2012

    " Predictable. Language. No character development. People making the same dumb choices that have had serious, life altering consequences for them in the past. Meh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 11/1/2011

    " It was ok, but I prefer the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Jowett | 9/30/2011

    " Oh man, these last two I have read have been fairly terrible and it makes me wonder if all the others have been also since it's been quite a while since I read any because I didn't know they were still writing them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 K1d2 | 9/25/2011

    " This is a prequel to a series for which I have read almost all the books. Interesting to see how the characters I know came to be where they are in the later books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christianne | 9/16/2011

    " Prequel to the Nina Reilly series which I really enjoy...this one wasn't as good. Writing seemed sort of stiff and disjointed at times. Weird. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 3/26/2011

    " This was a quick, easy read. It wasn't my favorite of her books but it was enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Francie | 2/25/2011
