About this author

Cassandra Chan has published four novels, most recently A Spider on the Stairs, and several short stories featuring Gibbons and Bethancourt. She lives in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

It's last week, and I get a call from Crissie, who is fussed because her husbandish, Shaun, has been abruptly called away on a business trip to Arkansas where it is apparently snowing. Crissie grew up in Florida and she has a deep-seated distrust of winter weather.

"Shaun won't listen to me," she complains. "He keeps saying that it's only a couple of inches, so they'll plow and everything will b...

Cassandra Cassandra said: " This is one of Crissie's all-time favorites from long ago. I'm liking it so far, and it certainly does very well when my brain is just too tired to parse "Christianity: the first 3,000 years." "

This is one of the best in the series. I've just finished re-reading the entire series from start to finish, and it's as wonderful as when I first encountered it. The pace seems to be picking up a bit in the later books, but they're all wonderful. An ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Great characters, solid plot, and splendid pacing. You really want to know what happens to Kelsea and although there were no mind-blowing twists, there were plenty of secrets hinted at that I wanted to know the answer to. ...more

Doors of Stone by Patrick Rothfuss
"While it's nice to see folks out there giving this book five stars, and in some cases even reviewing it, I'll admit that I'm kinda puzzled.

This book is simply delightful. Very quirky, delivered in bite-sized pieces easily devoured at bedtime. It's the history mostly of Western European food, with a few look-ins in other places, and says a good deal about the history of recipes and cookb ...more

“Gibbons wondered vaguely if he was becoming a morphine addict. He had certainly dosed himself into a stupid on account of the hideous pain resulting from the nurse's insistence that he get up and sit in a chair. He rather thought that being a drug addict would interfere with his career as a police detective, but that didn't seem to matter as much as it had a little while ago.”
Cassandra Chan, Trick of the Mind

“I hate this case,' stated Gibbons unequivocally. 'I don’t know what really happened, I shall probably never know what really happened, and I shall still be a detective sergeant when I’m sixty.”
Cassandra Chan, Village Affairs
