My Rating:

4.5

Favorite Quotes:

The means for executing good barbecue is something a true man of the Islands is seldom without - plus a supply of beer and a macho vehicle.

At this point, Natalie, let's dispense with formalities. Please call me John, and I'll call you Miss Marple.

Don't give me that 'I'm just fine' routine. Be a good retired cop and go quietly with the guys with the stethoscopes.


My Review:

Being a resident of Hawaii, I could not pass up a murder mystery based in Honolulu. It was thrill

Burrows-Johnson's cozy mystery Prospect for Murder is set in the Hawai'ian Islands, proving that even Paradise has its dark side. We begin with the odd occurrence of our protagonist having a psychic vision. Both she and her brother have unique gifts, different yet complementary. Sadly, Natalie's vision is one of gruesome death, one with personal ties to Natalie herself. The victim is her niece, who’s fallen from the fourth storey of an ap

Author Jeanne Burrows-Johnson sets out a daunting task for herself as she opens her new Natalie Seachrist series of mystery novels with Prospect for Murder (2016). In her notes, Burrows-Johnson says “I look forward to introducing historical characters and incidents with in the genre of a mystery novel.” I view this as daunting because most mystery readers have a pretty clear idea of what they want from a mystery novel, and they are not always happy if they don’t find what they expect in the firs ...more

Twins have "special" powers amongst each other. They can feel each others pain, sense when one is in trouble, and even communicate without speaking out loud. The twins in Prospect For Murder by Jeanne Burrows-Johnson are no different but are so different !!!

In Prospect For Murder you have twins Nathan and Natalie as well as Nathan's granddaughters, Ariel and Brianna, who are also twins. Natalie also has a "gift" of seeing things happen....like before she received word that Ariel had died, she h
