When Hide and Snoop was offered for review I couldn't resist even though it's the 7th in the series and I am yet to read any (though I own the first 3 books). Despite being unfamiliar with the previous installments, Hide and Snoop worked well as a stand alone and I enjoyed my introduction to Odelia Grey.

In Hide and Snoop, Odelia is unhappy at the legal firm she works for after a recent merger. Her new boss, Erica, funnels the best assignments to the paralegal she bought with her and now, in a fi
Odelia's law firm has merged with another, her old boss has left and been replaced with a mean one, and there's another paralegal gunning for Odelia's job and her office in a time of layoffs. To top if off, her new boss Erica has dumped her three-year-old niece Lily on Odelia before disappearing - just as Lily's parents have disappeared. Although I was able to figure out who the "bad guy" was early on, I certainly enjoyed the ride! I really liked getting to see the maternal side of Odelia and wo ...more

After a merger at her law firm, Odelia finds herself with a new boss who seems to have it in for her. While trying to get her job from rival paralegal Mark Baker, Odelia gets saddled with her new boss' niece. But searching for the little girl's parents start turning up dead bodies, and Odelia suddenly finds herself in way over her head. I love this series (hence the reason I got my name in this book), and this was another great mix of humor, strong characters, and fast moving plot. If you don't ...more
Odelia is a fun character and the book was an easy read. It might be better if I started this series at the beginning. The author had to weave the back story from earlier books into this novel to let the reader know how the characters connected. Sometimes the back story fit well and other times it was awkward.

There were times when I felt as if this book treated the "chick-lit" audience as if the readers weren't too bright. It's something that happens in YA literature too. Odelia is a smart woma
"Never Underestimate a Middle Aged Woman"
And that, my fellow cozy lovers, sums up Odelia Grey in a nutshell.

We find Odelia at a police station being questioned. In short order(but not short enough for Odelia) Seth (acting as her attorney) and Greg (Odie's hubs) enter. What is Odelia doing in a police station being interrogated? That's what everyone wants to know so...Odelia backs up and starts from the beginning.

I've been a dedicated reader of the Odelia Grey series for a few years, so much so that picking up the latest mystery feels like revisiting old friends I haven't seen in a while. This book is my favorite so far, because it shows a lot of character and relationship development for Odelia and Greg when a young child enters their life. The office politics are ratcheted way up, as "corpse magnet" Odelia copes with not having her old boss Steele to, well, boss her around. Instead, she has the ultimat ...more

I had been awaiting this novel since I finished number six. It was certainly worth the wait. First off I noticed that I remembered the characters and their relationship without any effort. This latest book moves forward in time and still easily kept me connected to events in the past.

Sleuth, Odelia Grey is trying to cope with the changes and competition that occur when two corporations merge. Although promises were made to the employees of the older firm, fondly known as 'Woobie.' Odelia quickly
I have been a huge Jaffarian/Odelia Grey fan for years! It's a must buy for me, even now being unemployed I had this on pre-order.

This entry in the series is quite possibly my favorite. It kind of went in a different direction and we saw a side of Odelia we haven't seen before and I loved it! There was the requisite mystery yes but a lot of the story centered on Odelia and her relationships with her coworkers and family/friends. While our favorite heroine was in danger the real threat didn't sh
This is fast becoming a favorite adult mystery series and I discovered that I can borrow the earlier titles through inter-library loan. In short, I love this series! Odelia Grey is a middle-aged very plump amateur sleuth. What I like best, although I haven't read any of the first 5 books, is that the people in earlier books, both good and nefarious, surface again in later books and gives her a wide base of resources and assistance.

In this story, Odelia is worried about her paralegal job since h
I like this series. I have read all seven. They are well plotted with enough suspects, twists, and red herrings to make the endings a surprise. I'm not crazy about the heroine, whose life is a little too perfect, and some of the humor is too broad for my taste. Overall, though, this is entertaining light reading. This particular outing moves a little too slowly: after the initial setup, in which we learn who was killed, nothing of substance happens until the midway point. After that things pick ...more
Decent chick-lit mystery series with smart, nosy, obese protagonist, who makes no apologies for her health choices. Her disabled husband is a chubby chaser (see first book in series). The books are light-weight fluff, AKA brain candy (which have no calories, in comparison with those Girl Scout cookies the heroine crams down her throat).

As a physician, I do hate to see poor health modeled as an acceptable alternative. I would really like to see Odelia acknowledge the health risks she embraces and
This was a very cute story with some surprises. There were quite a few in the series I have missed but it was enough of a stand alone to not get confused. I hope to catch up with the rest soon.
Basically a good mystery story, good ending and kept me reading. Odelia gets herself into situations that make her seem like she has no common sense sometimes, but it does move the story forward.
A good book to read when you wake up at 4 in the morning and can't get back to sleep.
I always enjoy this series and this one was no exception. The law firm Odelia works for has merged with another and the axe is falling on employees right and left. Mike Steele, her old boss, has left for another firm and Odelia finds herself working for the she-devil from hell who is definitely looking to get rid of her. When the boss' 3-year-old niece gets dumped on her for the weekend, that's pretty much the last straw. Until the boss goes missing and the little girl's mother turns up dead. RE ...more

Love this series and anxiously awaited the publication of this book. Like the others, this book didn't disappont. This series isn't a complex mystery with so many twists and turns, but it's very entertaining. Odelia is once again caught up in a murder investigation in this installment of the series. Besides the murder/mystery aspect of this story, there's also the aspect of Odelia's love life and her professional life. It's a very well rounded series. Thoroughly enjoyable.
I do love Odelia but I am beginning to wonder how much longer the whole "corpse magnet" thing can go on here. It takes us to almost halfway through the book for the murder to occur and the ending is a little telegraphed (at least to me it was.) I don't know if the fact that the author is writing 3 different series that this causing her to be spread thin, or if she is losing here edge with this series. That would be a shame if either is the case.

Do not read this book......unless you have nothing else to do!!! Odelia gets herself in trouble yet again and this time it's life or death for her. Who's out to get her and why???? You'll have to read the book to find out. It's fast paced and very enjoyable with some heart wrenching tossed in for good measure. I couldn't put it down unless I absolutely had to. I think this is the best Odelia Grey book yet and the rest of them were great.
Cardyn Brooks
Each installment of this enjoyable series is better than the previous one. S.A.J. explores the world of Odelia Grey from different angles with sensitivity, contemporary realism, and wit. Strong character development and evolution, solid sleuthing, and rich background texture in the supporting cast and physical environment.
I think this was one of the best books yet in the Odelia Grey series.

The mystery was a little more complex than earlier ones. Lots of the same characters from earlier books, as well as some new ones. The ending sets up for some interesting possibilities in future books.

Can't wait to read #8.
The 7th outing in the Odelia Grey series. I really enjoy this series and Odelia as a sleuth. Although this was not my favorite in the series, it was still well written and enjoyable. I would recommend reading this series in order to make sense of the character development over time. 4 out of 5 stars.
Fun book. Odelia is always getting in trouble as she too often finds dead bodies. Her boss dumps a 3 year old belonging to her sister in Odelia's care and then her boss disappears. Odelia, in searching for the missing sister, discovers dead bodies. Trouble ensues. Funny narration.
Lee Margaret
It was an interesting read for a new author (to me). It had a very exciting end. I still don't know why the murderer killed the couple. This book has a happy ending for the little girl which is great to see. This book has me considering the author's other books to read in the future.
This wasn't my favorite, although I love all of them. It felt like most of the usual characters were either missing or not present enough. This has become one of my must buy series but I really missed Steele in this one. Even though he's an ass he adds a lot of fun to the books.
I thought I would give this chick-lit mystery a try, but I'm not impressed enough to read the others in the series. Plot points were too easy to see from a long way off, the narrator makes stupid decisions, and I didn't believe the story around the major motivation for the crime.
Started reading this through ebook access at the library to see what it was like and to practice to help patrons. It was entertaining enough to request a copy from the preview I'd read. Hope I have time to finish it before the check-out expires. So many books, so little time...

I will admit that I am not big on mysteries, but I must admit I enjoyed this one. I appreciated that the author kept a level of first person humor in her main character without it being cutesy or forced. I would go back now and read some of the others in this series.
I love Odelia Grey. She rocks my world as I sit there spellbound from page one, all the way to the last words in the book. I'm already looking forward to the next book in this amazing series.

I am soooo glad I could get it from my local library.
Another charmer in the series featuring Odelia Grey, the plus-size paralegal and "corpse magnet." A merger has put Odelai's job in jeopardy, and she is saddled with the care of her nasty new boss's three year old niece. Then her boss disappears...
