I started reading this book thinking it was book two in the series, and after having read book one I decided it was a book I was willing to read. I read chapter one and two and was discovering I felt like I had either missed something or the author was writing in a style I very much disliked. After three chapters of small things being said I didn't follow I looked closer at the book and realized it was book three not book two in the series. Then things started making sense as to why I was feelin ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It was just as good as Dead Air

The only thing I thought was a bit off was Chapter ten, it should not have cut at that paragraph given it was just a continuation of the conversation she had in the previous paragraph, it made no since to cut into a new chapter at that point. But that's nit picking.

Also, the relationship between Maggie and Rafe was insanely rushed, like Kennedy wanted to move their relationship along but only had literally the very last two lines to do

Stay Tuned for Murder – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat

‘I ran down the list of suspects, feeling more frustrated by the moment. Chantel Carrington was the first name that leap into my mind. Why did I think of her as a suspect? I wrote down everything I knew about her. She was here in town under an alias, her background was murky, and somehow she’d made a name for herself in the motivational field. Could Mildred or Althea have suspected who she really was, or maybe they

3rd in series... MUCH better than the last one.

After reading (and really not liking) the 2nd book, Id thought id givin up on this series for good. However the author definiitely redeemed herself with this one.

We open this one with a BS psychic named Chantel who claimes she can talk to the dead ... (as a guest on Maggies talk show) Chantel seems to be taking over Maggies show, and after a seance, the local historian is found dead in her house.

Maggie is determined to pin this on Chantel and duri

Stay Tuned for Murder is the third in Mary Kennedy’s Talk Radio Mystery Series. I reviewed the first in the series, Dead Air. In Stay Tuned for Murder, Maggie Walsh is back as a radio talk show psychologist and determined amateur sleuth. This time she’s dealing with a pushy psychic, the opening of the town’s time capsule, and, of course, murder.

The first thing that draws you into this series is the characters. Maggie is believable – even her urge to put herself into the middle of investigations.

The question given is "What did you think?" Well, the answer is, "I think this book was worth the wait, money, and reading time." My only complaint is now I must await the next book.

Cypress Grove, FL will never be the same after two murders, time capsules, historical buildings, development projects, and fortunes being made and lost. Oh, did I forget the Oracle?

WYME radio talk host, Maggie is left to try and solve the above mysteries and even her two 'insiders' the local PD detective, Rafe and a

Maggie is a psychologist turned radio talk show host in south Florida. This mystery involves a psychic who appears as a frequent quest on Maggie's show along with two murders in the small town of Cyprus Grove. The book started out well and I was on my way to giving it four stars, but then I lost interest. I think there were too many characters who were briefly introduced and seemed to be tangential to the story (the "ESL teacher" in particular). The whole build up for the revealing of the conten ...more

Chantal, the new psychic in town, has slowly been edging in on Maggie's psychologically-based radio talk show. After the pushy psychic talks to her spirit guide at the Cypress Grove historical society and warns against evil in their midst, a quiet, inoffensive local person is murdered. The whole town is eager for the opening of a time capsule, which is rumored to contain some sensational information. I enjoy the series in general, but felt that the solution to these mysteries was below par.

This is the third book in this series. For Maggie being a psychologist, she some times seems to need a knock on the head for observation of the people around her. The answer for the one murder was kind of obvious, but the second one was a bit of a stumper. See if you can figure them out
