When will I learn? I've really got to stop picking these books when I'm not in the right mood for them. Fleeced follows in the same vein as it's predecessors - with Regan on whatever vacation/trip she's on at the moment getting drawn into something or other with a rather large cast of side characters many of whom I'll forget as soon as they leave the page. It doesn't help that characters are still being introduced near the end of the book (one of my biggest issues with this book).

The Book:

++ Regan Reilly is in NYC to attend a crime convention with her crime writer mother Nora & her mortician father Luke but after a mother/daughter picture appears in the paper an old friend from a previous case asks for her help. Thomas Pilsner is the president of the Survivor's Club which is in dire financial straits and needs a lot of overdue maintenance. Two members have decided to donate the proceeds from the sale of some diamonds and of a sudden, both of them die on the same day. Everyone ...more

This was an action mystery story which occurred in NYC when Regan was visiting her parents to attend a crime conference organized by her mother, mystery writer Nora Reilly. She also wanted to see her boyfriend, Jack Reilly, head of the Major Case Squad in New York. A friend, president of the Settlers' Club on Gramercy Park, hires Regan to investigate the suspicious deaths of two members of the club and to locate the 4 missing diamonds worth 4 million dollars that the two suddenly deceased men ha ...more

So far, Fleeced has been my absolute favorite Regan Riley novel. The hysterical cast of characters made the story. It was a light, easy read that had me laughing from start to finish.

If you've ever read any of the Reagan Riley Mysteries, this one is very indicative of the series. It was pleasant, easy reading--not scary, gorey, no bad language... just fun.

The story is about P.I. Regan Reilly, and how on a short vacation she gets asked to help solve a crime from her friend Thomas Pilsner, who is the President of The Settlers Club. The 2 surviving members of a Club called The Suits that played poker every week were all jewelers and they all put in diamonds and the last living member would get them. The 2 surviving members Nat and Ben had decided to give the diamonds to the Settlers Club which really needed the money but before they can they are mur ...more

Regan Reilly is in New York attending a crime conference organized by her celebrity-author mother...and relaxing with her new beau, Jack 'no relation' Reilly. But it's not long before trouble finds our sleuth. Family friend Thomas Pilsner - the president of the Settlers' Club on Gramercy Park - needs her help. Two settlers have been found dead, the diamonds they were donating to the flagging club have vanished, and Thomas is the prime suspect. Regan must solve the mystery of the disappearing dia ...more

Level one quetions:

1. What makes Thomas decide this was a murder?
There was concluding facts the he believed proved it was, for example Ben never liked to take baths, but was found in a tub.

2. Why does Reagan believe this to be an inside job?
As much as Reagan doesn't want to point fingers at the club, the back door to Ben's apartment was unlocked and only staff and Ben had keys.

3. What was the mystery about these diamonds?
No one had seen or even known about them until Ben chose to tell and

Regn Reilly and her investigations are always full of quirky characters who seem to be not related to each of the other characters until the seam of the story has been sewn together.

Re-reading this book to get back into the groove that is characterized by Carol Higgins Clarks unique way of writing. I am a big fan of her mom, Mary.

Fleeced was the first book that I have read by Carol Higgins Clark, and I must say that I had trouble putting it down. I had watched the tv movie Deck the Halls with the Regan Reilly character and enjoyed it so I decided to try one of the books. Luckily this book takes place soon after Deck the Halls so I was able to dive right in. Clark's Regan Reilly is a great leading character, and I thought she made a great lead detective. The mystery of the missing diamonds and the murder of their owner wa ...more

I think I actually enjoyed this more than any other book I have read (so far) by Carol Higgins Clark. Now we have a real murder, people whose lives are in danger, multiple villains, flawed heroes, and a budding romance in the background of the action. It was mystery, thriller, and really fun character study. Loved it.

An enjoyable mystery. I picked up clues along the way but certainly was surprised by a few things in the end. I love Regan Reilly's sense of humor! Funny thing - I finished up reading it late last night and at the beginning of chapter 76, it said, "It was the kind of room on the kind of day where one would be inclined to curl up with a good book, a cup of tea, and a blanket." And, there I sat, curled up with a good book, a cup of tea, and a blanket. Now, I am inclined to read more by Carol Higgi ...more

This is a very easy read and as usual a wonderful murder mystery. However there were a few questions left unanswered. Perhaps it was the authors intent to over share in an attempt to throw you off the scent of the real killer. But still worth the read.

For me the characters were not engaging and the writing was simple. Life is too short and there is too much available to spend reading something that you do not care for. There are far better mysteries, IMHO.

Very entertaining

Wonderful book, very entertaining, full of humour, but also of good feelings, full of suspense and surprises, but also extremely amusing and funny to read.... the best Regan Reilly's novel I've read so far..

Too predictable

No real surprises.
I will not read one of these again. It was a waste of my time and money. It is more of a comedy than mystery.

I really like Carol Higgins Clark I figured out a portion of what was going on but not all of it. I enjoy all of her characters as well.

It was a good story. There was mystery. But I wonder whether the reason in the book which makes the murderer to commit a murder is convincing.

Good book. Characters are well developed and hopefully grow throughout the series. There were a few twists that kept me guessing. Looking forward to next book in this series.

First time I have read a Carol H Clark book and it was...ok. A light mystery, set in NYC. Nothing too complicated.
Mike French
Very enjoyable read. However,I like her mother's books a little better(Mary Higgins Clark).I give this book 3 1/2 stars,almost a 4! I will read another one of her Regan Reilly series in the near future.

I don't usually read mysteries, I'm more of a fantasy/sci-fi girl. But my sister-in-law recommended this and even lent me all the books she owns in the series-six out of ten!

They have been fun and a good change of pace. This book is the only one in the series I've read so far that contained an actual murder. The others deal with less *ahem* serious crimes, like theft.

They feel like grown-up Encyclopedia Brown books: you run around with the detective, collecting clues, trying to figure out what i
