I am having a difficult time rating and reviewing this one. On the one hand, it is a decent book. On the other, Belle was starting to annoy the living daylights out of me. I found her constant criticisms and snarky remarks to be really tiresome and tedious. That said, even though I guessed 'who dunnit' early on, I did still think that there was a good storyline. Plus, I do enjoy the Northern Ontario setting. Finally, I think I am a glutton for punishment as I will likely read the next (and perha ...more

Great! All the books in this series have been very enjoyable reading and I think each one has gotten a bit better than the previous one and Murder, Eh? is probably the best yet. Besides the usual cast of returning characters we meet a new doggie hero, Buffalo, a new and very likeable, if maybe a bit too perfect, character in Micro and a whole bunch of new and appropriately despicable bad guys who're all finally brought to justice in an overall quite satisfactory ending and the clues to the twist ...more

Is a serial killer loose in Sudbury, Ontario? It certainly appears so when real estate agent Belle Palmer discovers her client’s strangled body in a bathtub. She is the third woman to die this way, and the community is nervous. The victim leaves behind a twelve-year-old son nicknamed Micro, who winds up staying with Belle for a short while. Micro doesn’t want to stay in the house with his step father, and when the boy goes missing, friends and family fear he’s been lured away by a pedophile.

I enjoyed reading this book. I was so wrong about who the killer was. Wrong by a landslide. But it worked. It was totally play-fair crime fiction. A great puzzle.

I liked the Northern Ontario setting. Lou captures both the scenery and the no-nonsense approach to life that characterize northern cities like Sudbury. I lived in Muskoka for a year, and this book felt really true to that kind of setting.

The characters were great. Complicated, scratchy, kind...very real. Particularly this sweet, quirky

It's very simple ... I choose this book because of two factors: (i) it was written by a Canadian, and (ii) it was set in Sudbury, Ontario.
I was really put-off at first by Lou Allin's writing style which was so heavily descriptive that it was almost like reading commercial copy. She must have described every nook and cranny of Sudbury within the first 40 pages of her book ... as well as finding ways to make mention of Canadian Tire, Tim Horton's, etc.

Somewhere towards the middle of the book, as I

Lou Allin really knows how to set a scene and she can be creepy and quirky at the same time.

Anyway, how can a Canadian not love a title like "Murder, Eh?"
