I really enjoyed this installment in the Josie Pigeon series. It took place in NYC instead of on the island like normal and I enjoyed seeing Josie stepping out of her comfort zone. The mystery was good and I enjoyed seeing how she went about solving it.

The book really stood out to me when I saw the cover. Because of the blue background and the tiny bit of red that really stood out to me, I grabbed the book and read the blurb. The story was about a cash of being murder. The story about how Josie investigate the case. I really like these kind of mystery books, but in the middle of reading think book, I feel really dissapointed when I found that the action wasnt occuring as I liked it to, and when it did, it was too surprising.

First Valerie Wolzien book that just wasn't that good! Josie does not belong in New York not doing construction work! The plot seemed really scattered and not very organized to me (son is so very important but only in the very beginning and ending of the story, finding of dead body didn't seem to matter at all) - book just wasn't up to Valerie's normal high standers! Plus I could care less about fashions, beauty salons and all the crap Josie was finding in NY! "Just ugh" for a review!

I enjoy the Susan Henshaw mysteries by the same author. I was pleasantly surprised by the Josie Pigeon character. I like her as a detective even more than Susan Henshaw. The book is a little dated since it is from the early 90's but still enjoy the story and solving the mystery- although not a lot of suspects.

Interesting twist of the Josie saga---she and Sam are in NYC when his ex-girlfriend is found dead in his apartment. Josie wants to solve the murder to protect Sam but she is totally out of her element in sophisticated NYC.

The book was fine. I was in elementary when I read it ( Now I am a junior high school) and back then I don't have that taste for mysteries so I was satisfied with how the story came out.

have a very difficult time relating to Josie. I can't get into her story line or relate with the character very well at all.
