Good easy fun read. It was one you just sit down and enjoy. You become a player in clue trying to figure out the pieces. But it doesn’t overwhelm or flummox you. It just has you wanting to be a part of solving the mystery.

Fritz truly wasn’t a nice man at times. He was very blunt and that offends people. I think he was just trying to help but was doing it the wrong way. this got him enemies and that made a long list of suspects when found dead.

Lyssa at times drove me nuts. She was so wanting to k

I truly enjoyed this book, I couldn't put it down. Everything from great characters who felt real to the setting and pacing.

The thing I was most happy with this time was the fact that the story seemed to really flow smoothly.
Humor along with mystery and intrigue really make for a wonderfully written and fun to read novel!

I was kept on my toes to the very end. I was invested in both the story as a whole as well as each and every character. There were surprises along the way that had me gasping o

4.5 out of 5 stars rounded up.

This was a great read and tho' it didn't quite hit a "5" on my scale, it's a solid "4.5"! This book was a lot of fun for me. I had planned on reading the first book in the series before tackling this one, but life happened and that didn't. Thankfully, I didn't feel like I was missing a ton of important back story, maybe a little bit, but not too much.

I enjoyed the characters in this book. Lyssa and Kyle seem like people who I'd want to be friends with. They're intel

This was a fast paced read that literally took only half a day to finish the story for me, I couldn't put it down.
Fun, addictive, and full of surprises. There wasn't any time to have my mind wandering. From the get go, there was lots of things happening at once. It was a full ride!

The writing style was simple and the narration was easy to follow. The imagery had me immersed in the mystery. The characters were rich and well portrayed. The smooth flow of the tale kept me stable even through the su

Light and Fun, C.T. Collier’s novel Stuck will have readers captivated by her characters.
The characters are real and very well developed, they make it easy for you as the reader to be drawn into.
This novel was very easy to follow. There was something wonderful about how simple it was. I didn’t have to overthink things, but it kept me guessing enough in the mystery aspect.

Dive into a mystery with C.T. Collier.

I loved the balance between the lives and personalities of the characters and the mystery they were dealing with. There is a lot going on and the characters have a lot they have to get through while trying to uncover clues.

The mystery elements in these novels are always very well done. Collier creates scenarios that are not easy to unravel and keep you invested throughout the entirety of the novel. I don't want to be able to figure everything out too early
