I have been reading a lot of mysteries, suspense novels and thrillers lately so I thought this book would be right up my alley and I couldn't wait to receive it. Boy was I severely disappointed.

My first issue was that I just could not find a way to get into the characters in this book. They seemed extremely flat, one dimensional characters- ALL OF THEM. It's not that I disliked the characters- there wasn't enough subsistence in them to dislike or like. The majority of the book takes place on a

"A Rocky Road" by Glen Ebisch is a "light" murder mystery and a quick read at only 186 pages. The setting is interesting; a bus tour through the Rocky Mountains. The heroine/amatuer sleuth in Susan Cantrell, a young school teacher who has taken a leave of absence from her job after the death of her father and who is looking for a change in her life situation. A small cast of pretty stereotypical characters, including an undercover detective (handsome and Susan's love interest of course) are on ...more

Fast paced clean mystery

"A Rocky Road" was actually copyrighted in 2004 by Avalon Books and was reproduced from the Avalon book archive files (per a blurb at the start of the book).

I liked that this book took place in Colorado, one of my favorite places and the tour depicted in the book actually went to many of my favorite places within the state - Air Force Academy, Mesa Verde, Durango-Silverton Railroad, Ouray - and while not overly descriptive, it was accurate in the descriptions.

This is a sh

Rather a nice little mystery with a sweet romance on the side. I always like a book that takes me travelling and this one provides a nice tour through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. An easy summer beach read.

Unfortunately, I figured out the plot before I was a third of the way through the book. That was not a result of any superior brain function on my part, it was more of a reflection of the dimness of the plot.

I waited quite a while for this one and about 1 1/2 months later it came from Coos Bay. It was a fun read all in all, but it was quite silly (good word for it Mandy). The storyline made me laugh, especially in the view of the killer, but I still enjoyed it.

This book is silly. It is a clean read though. It is a no brainer, simple murder mystery, however, the murderer is easy to detect (by the 4th chapter and that is pushing it.)

I thought this book was juvenile. I knew who dunnit by page 11 and they really wasn't anything else to keep my interest.

Quick read but not a lot of depth to it. I liked how it was a clean murder mystery.
