Julie Kramer's first novel, "Stalking Susan" doesn't strive to break any new ground in the realm of mystery/thrillers. Then again, it doesn't really need to thanks to her first-person narrator, Riley Sparkz.

Riley is an investigative journalist for channel 3 in Minnesota. Riley's returning to work after a three-month personal leave and finds two stories dropped into her lap. One is about a vet who is charging grieving pet owners for cremation services that he's not delivering and the other involves a mysterious wave of murders of females named Susan on November 19th of each year.

"Stalking Susan" ably juggles both plotlines and some stories about Riley's co-workers and personal life with deft ease. The mysteries here aren't challenging or elaborate, but they don't need to be. The story is a fun, breezy character driven thriller that's ideal for as chewing gum for the brain or to read while relaxing in the summer sun.
