Drivel.
Asinine.
Devoid of any sense of continuity.
Bad Fan fiction.

And those are the nice things I have to say about it. What a piece of crap.

Just as good as the first, and in many ways much more assured, this book, though dark and harrowing, is a fabulous read. Even vaguely remembering the plot I was struck anew at how sophisticated the set up is and how effortless Lehane makes the very t...more

I originally read this book years ago and was so taken with it that I got the other books in the series and read them all in a few week period. As a result they have all sort of blended together. After watching Gone, Baby Gone again on DVD (the third...more

I really regret buying this book in hardback. Not that these books were ever really engrossing reads, but this one is so thin it should have been a short story. The characters feel boringly unchanged and the whole thing had a definite feeling of ‘bee...more

This is a series that continues to improve with each book. New characters bring mystery and danger, while the inherent coziness of the series remains. A dash of romance that doesn’t overpower the other aspects of the book is a welcome addition and an...more

Odelia is back. This book, better written than the first, continues her adventures while injecting more humor and a sense of fun. Mike Steele, her nasty boss, gets more space and is a very interesting character for her to interact with. The whole uni...more

The first in a series, this modern day mystery finds a plus sized paralegal solving crime in Southern California. While hardly a perfect book, it is a very solid first novel that incorporates a compelling mystery while introducing us to new character...more

A very good trashy romance set in the late 1880’s-1890’s. Our heroine manages to be modern and yet not totally anachronistic, a pretty fine line that the author manages to pull off. The secondary characters have a nice little sub plot of their own th...more

Nice closing novel that brings some resolution to series long issues and brings some nice (and needed) character growth. I really enjoyed this book for all aspects, the mystery and the romance, and for a change one didn’t seem to overwhelm the other....more
