Fool's Bluff is the first book in the Samantha Shepherd mystery series. I found this to be a good mystery book. None of the high voltage drama and psychological thrill, but still manages to be pretty captivating.

Just loved this book! It hit all aspects of what i look for in good read. Loved the well defined characters of Samantha, her friends and her worthy dog. Looked forward to every Saturday morning with a cup of coffee, nestled in and see what was happening with my friends in Glacier Village. I finished the last two chapters of the book last night at 1:45AM because I could not sleep until i knew the truth!

This is Lee Gregg's first book in the Samantha Shepherd Mystery series. It is excellent! In fact, I kept forgetting that the main characters were high school students because the storyline was so intense. It is a book of today's teenagers solving a mystery...a terrible mystery, as compared to the old school mysteries that I read as a teen and pre-teen. I will definitely be looking for the next in the series. ...more

Friendships and family relationships are difficult and often filled with drama. The book is a story that looks at some twisted relationships and some positive ones. How far will someone go to be noticed? And how much does social media play into those teen years? I thought the story was well done. The twist at the end was unexpected.

I read the book on NetGalley

FOOLS BLUFF

This was an excellent read, but unfortunately very scary on so many levels. This story addresses mental illness, domestic violence, consequences of our actions as well the consequences of sharing too much on social media. A very good read with so many different things addressed in the telling of such a very story, but not the least of which is slso how we treat our elderly & how damaging the "freedom of the press" can be when proper investigation & due diligence are not done. It has t

Great mystery!!
Quickly you become interested in the life of Samantha, a young female who is quite capable of taking care of herself.
But what happens when she is in charge of a group of hikers of the annual Challenge?
You will enjoy reading this.

Intriguing plot and likable characters. I look forward to reading more in this series as there are still many unanswered questions!

This book is easy to read, and with a clear timeline and an OK plot, but it's just not captivating. Descriptions of characters are not very good, and everything seems a little strange. ...more
