I really enjoyed this book. The story kept you guessing on who had taking Franco and if he was alive. Ann was getting a little in over her head at times. There was a great twist at the end. Very enjoyable and if there are anymore stories with these characters I look forward to reading them. Rachel did a great job and I look forward to reading more from her.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Nice job Rachel! (my former neighbor - proud to know you!) Couldn't put it down last night.

A great mystery

When I first read this book, I didn't even realize there was a book one, so with that said, this book can be read without reading the first one, and I don't feel like I missed anything. I will probably read the first book in the Ann Dexter Mystery series, though. So, for this book, I liked Ann. There was something about her that drew me in. Bukey can write a mystery, and it's not one that is obviously predictable. There were parts of the story that didn't seem to fit, but could be

Newspaper reporter/ amateur sleuth, Ann Dexter is assigned to interview Franco Albanese opera star and international playboy. She finds him charming, somewhat irresistible and soon missing. The story was almost a page turner, an easy read and interesting plot. Would be a five star, but I have gotten weary of the heroine making poor decisions, doing something stupid and ending up in the clutches of the "bad guy". Would so love endings more like the Christies, Sayers and Reinhardt of days gone by.

Full Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author.

First of all, don’t be dismayed by the “Volume 2” included with the book’s description. While there are allusions to events in the first book, you do not have to read it to understand “Notes from Hell.” I hadn’t read the first book and didn’t feel lost at all. Ms. Bukey does a good job educating the reader on the pertinent facts we need to know, allowing this second in a series to stand on its own.

The story itself is a mystery. It s

This a well written and sensible story. The Seattle area descriptions are accurate. The content of newsroom sounds okay to me. I know almost nothing of opera. The first part of the book was devoted to opera and I found unstimulating as I have little interest in the opera. I thought the mystery plot original and creative. Amy Dexter, a Seattle Times reporter has an interview with an opera rock star. She is charmed. The star, Franco Albanese is kidnap and she began to receive emails from the kidna ...more
