Camilla Never Quits, October 14, 2012
By Ellen Rappaport (Florida)
This review is from: The Devil's in the Details: a Camilla MacPhee mystery (Paperback)
The Devil's in the Details is another winner for M.J. and Camilla. The Camilla Macphee series is just the perfect cozy for me. It's always packed with action but never overwhelming in characters.
As a matter of fact-speaking of characters...Mrs. (Violet) Parnell is once again a prolific hoot and then some. Mrs. P appears to be fixated in WW II....more

* * * 1/2

Labour Day weekend in the nation's capital (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada): the last weekend of summer, a chance to unwind, perhaps attending the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River. Lawyer Camilla MacPhee is trying to avoid being roped into taking a balloon ride with her friends as well as summonses to the family cottage north of the city -- relaxation is the name of the game for her. That is, until she is informed that she has been named the next of kin...more

Poor Camilla MacPhee. All she wants is one holiday where bodies don't drop like the labour day leaves, but alas - no, she's wrapped up in a mystery again. When a school acquaintance dies, and leaves her listed as next of kin (even though they weren't close), Camilla decides it's time to figure out who next of kin really is, what happened, and why in the world someone she hadn't thought about in years would list her as such a close relation. As always, the mystery itself is almost secondary to th...more

OMG I love Camilla MacPhee!! Book #4 read, can't wait to start another. YYou chuckle through out the books.

This current Camilla MacPhee story opens with Ms. Maffini's usual surprising drama. It is like coming home to a friend, when I pick up one of her novels. This book is different as Camilla is basically on her own and has quite a struggle. She must prove a crime but against whom? The culprit hit me almost as I read the words in the book. Again, this book was a superb murder mystery. And, Yes, her friends do show up at the crucial time.

These books must be read.

This is the fourth book in the Camilla MacPhee series, which is set in Ottawa.

I finished the second one in the series last week and found it kind of flat. I must say that I really enjoyed this one. The story was interesting and moved along quickly. Sure, it was far fetched at times but it was fun.

The ending was a surprise but I bought it and was happy with it.

I'd definitely recommend this one.
Brenda Burnett
liked this one best of the series, so far. Though, Camilla goes too far in doing everything by herself, with a double concussion.
how Camilla MacPhee isn't dead yet, i'll never know. what an interesting character and her body sure can take a beating.
