While I have always remained partial to Sturman's first book in the Rachel Benjamin series, 'THE PACT' I have to regretfully admit that I now have a new favorite in this engaging series...'THE HUNT'! Not only was this installment filled with unexpected twists and turns (not only in the whodunit but also in Rachel and Peter's relationship) but it was also laugh out loud funny!

In the 'THE HUNT' Rachel finds herself, not so successfully in her opinion, trying to fit in with her super normal in-laws

The fourth in a "chick lit" mystery series, this isn't the best entry, but still amusing. This one finds Rachel on the west coast in San Francisco for an engagement party being thrown by the parents of her husband-to-be, Peter. She's determined to be normal for her future in-laws, but when her friend Hilary disappears after the party, leaving a freshly dumped boyfriend and a text message, "SOS," that idea goes out the window.

The next couple of days are spent trying to find out exactly where Hila

As i was reading this book, the only things that were going through my mind was the amazement of true friendship. It was touching that someone would go to the extent of risking their own life, to find and help a friend. This day and ange, all people hear and talk about is this person back stabbing another or one person betraying another, it's hard to find a true friend these days. Especially someeone who is willing to stick with you through your thick and thin.

Anita and i have been friends sinc

I enjoyed this book for the fun characters and the strange story lines and plot twists. It was a gun mystery, an engaging read.
But I have to say that there were times where I was somewhat distracted by the rapid fire back-n-forth dialogue between the main character and her friend Louisa. I would get a little lost sometimes on who was saying what, and have to back-track to determine who had started it off in order to know who said what. Perhaps if would be better if some small snipets of action,

I got this book yesterday, and I loved it. Watching Rachel, her fiance, and their friends try to peice together clues to find someone was great. Jennifer Sturman hasn't lost her touch where writing these characters or her stories are concerned. I waited for a year for this book to come out, and it was worth the wait.

I wish it had been longer though. I noticed out of all of Ms. Sturman's books, this was the shortest and the thinnest.

I didn't realize this was #4 in a series (I will now have to go back and read the previous ones!). I LOVED LOVED LOVED the characters in this book. I love the way is was written. It was funny, it was a thriller/suspenseful, and you think you know who is doing what, but you don't!

Another Rachel Benjamin mystery. The plot centered around a security software's IPO and it read a little like the movie, Anti-trust. However, it was an overall good, fast-paced read and on par with the other Rachel Benjamin books.

I love this girls writing. She's a bit on the sarcastic side and the characters are super.:) It was a good, fun, entertaining read. Jennifer is very creative.:)

Entertaining chick-lit mystery. Part of a series, but there is enough info about Rachel Benjamin and her long time friends/former college roommates for the story to stand alone.
c'était mignon et marrant j'ai bien aimé

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the previous books in the series. The plot seemed a little predictable. There were some entertaining moments though.

A fun read. I like Sturman's style. I think it's very entertaining and I relate to her Diet Coke addiction. :)

Chick-lit mystery - my favorite. What's even better about the series by this author is that she doesn't create obnoxious in-laws or go over the top with the name-brand, pop culture references.

Love these Rachel Benjamin mystery chick lit. Not much depth there, but a good, fun read, nonetheless.

Another fun and easy read,I love this crazy group of gals, but missed two in this book. Plus it was nice to read about a city I love.

Predictable plot and weak character development. It's a good plane book.

Cute book. Four stars for the type of book it is...chick lit...light and easy. The characters are entertaining and engaging...the story kept me guessing.
Starting to get a bit repetitive but what series doesn't? I read this in one day and I think that proves this series is still entertaining, easy to read and hard to put down.
