I was beginning to question a lot, including my sanity for trying to find something I didn't know anyone would steal in the first place. How did I end up in another complicated mystery involving a motorcycle rally, horses, a hidden collection, antique books, unexpected alliances, extortion, and threats upon my life? And how did I become a target?

It was "A Lethal Time" and

The opening lines of a phone conversation: "Someone stole my Woods!" brings the reader to wondering about the plot!!!
The plot, strange as it may seem at first, involves the novelist, Sam Jamison, with still another mystery to solve. This time it's set in the New Hampshire countryside.
Her "buddies", composed of 3 rather elderly and unusual female gossips, are always around to help her out.
Their crazy adventures give the story just enough humour to keep the reader in a good mood while followi

When reviewing another of Edelheit’s works, “Diamonds are not a girl’s best friend”, I compared it to an Inspector Clouseau (of Pink Panther fame) mystery, and in this case the overwhelming feel I had was of Scooby Doo.

That’s not a criticism, but rather a commentary on the style and levity; as mentioned in the author bio (which has nothing about the author, but a little about the books), these stories are first and foremost humour / satire. The comedy is not slapstick, as a lot of crime comedies

There is no denying Peggy Edelheit is a humorous and creative writer. Her Samantha Jamison Mysteries are unique thrillers that only Sam would find herself involved with, but also the delightful people in her life that adds enough drama to keep it funny. Samantha is an author by trait and a sleuth by default, which gives her plenty of material for her books, and her agent and editor wonder what she will get herself involved in next. Clay, her boyfriend, often has some connection to the unordinary ...more

A Lethal Time ( Samantha Jamison Mystery Book 4) by Peggy A. Ederlheit is my second experience of this author. Although the book I read previously was book 8 in this series and not read the first 3, it's not a series that matters if read out of sequence. Although the main characters are the same each book revolves around a new mystery waiting for Sam to solve.

In book 4 we meet back with Sam, that finds herself being constantly asked by her publisher if she's written her next mystery adventure, w

Edelheit never disappoints me!

I truly love the Samantha Jamison novels. Once I start reading I can’t put them down! A lethal Time is the fourth book in the series. As usual Peggy A. Edelheit did not disappoint! True to form, it was full of laughs while still remaining interesting and staying true to the mysterious story line! Edelheit is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors with her witty and entertaining story lines. I love that there’s always a series of twists and turns and the ending

I am a fan of humor and I think that's why I like her books so much! This was number four in the series, and it did not disappoint. Usually by now, or this far along in a series the books falter a bit, but that is something Peggy does not have an issue with. The main character Samantha and her funny friends are back for more adventures, starting with a crazy phone call one morning. Sam and her friends have barely recovered from the last solved case, and are now thrust into another. The book has ...more

If Sam and her crew existed anywhere besides the mind of the writer, I would so love to go on one of their vacations with them! The story picks up just as Sam and everyone is leaving the French Riviera, where they just solved the mystery of the animal bones,and uncovered more truths then ever thought. Out of the blue, Samantha's friend Crystal, has this cousin, Sally, who just so happens, to be going out of town, and needs someone to housesit their big sprawling ranch for awhile.Sounds innocent ...more

A Lethal Time is a novel within the Samantha Jamison series. Each novel is its own individual mystery story. So any of them can be picked up and read without having to read them in any particular order. The only benefit to reading them in order is the introduction to the characters in the early books and learning their backgrounds/connections. Each novel does sort of pick up where the last one left off in the sense of hinting about Sam's last location at attempting at relaxing and how she would ...more

This is the 4th book in the series and as usual all of Sam's relaxing plans are thrown out the window with a strange phone call she receives early in the morning. To be honest I had agreed with Samantha's initial assessment that the caller was loony especially since it is not something I commonly hear about. Sam finds herself, despite good intentions, in the middle of strange circumstances that are possibly related and put the entire crew's lives in danger.

The author introduces quite a few addit

There is a lot to like about A Lethal Time. The main plot is interesting and propels the story forward in a way that maintains a high level of interest. The subplots help to reveal characterization of key players and add to the intrigue. And, the characters are well drawn and enjoyable. I love a little humor with my mystery, and the author does a very good job of adding light touches in between action scenes.

I also enjoy novels that teach me something new. A Lethal Time takes place during a mult

Peggy has done it again!
Another light-hearted, mad-cap mystery you won't be able to put down once you pick it up and start reading. I love the main character, Samantha Jamison, her zany friends and their misadventures. You will too!
