“Stranger Danger” kept me engaged until the end. There are so many twists that the reader is anxious to find the real culprit. Paco keeps doing his job although he was not as involved as in some previous books. Geraci writes an entertaining story

Maria Geraci does it again with a cozy mystery set in Whispering Bay, Florida with Lucy, the human lie detector and her dog, Paco, who is a ghost whisperer. Throw in the local law enforcement, including one who is a love interest for Lucy, some FBI, a reclusive author, a book club, her best friend Will, who is another love interest, her brother who is a priest and many others and we get a rich cast of characters.

Lucy's cafe, The Bistro by the Beach, which she co-owns with her friend Sarah,

Loved this book. Loves this series. Ms. Geraci has done it again in Stranger Danger Book 4.
I couldn’t put this book down. There is someone in the town of Whispering Bay impersonating an author. It happens to be a person Lucy knows well. When she meets the imposter she is mad to find out what’s really going on, and turns to Travis. But when she and her sweet pup dog Paco are smack dab in the middle of another dead body. She doesn’t know who did it, but won’t stop until she finds that person.

Another hilarious murder mystery from the pen(?), computer(?), imagination of Maria Geraci. What was once known as the safest town in America, has experienced a spat of murderers, all solved by human lie detector, Lucy McGuffin, the muffin baker and her little dog, Paco. Lucy has been picking up the vibe, that the people closest to her are lying to her, people who have never lied to her before and know that she can tell when they do. When a con artist comes to town, claiming to be mysterious ...more

I was highly anticipating Stranger Danger, the 4th book in the series, and it did not disappoint.

Lucy is an amature sluth, master muffin creator, loyal best friend and a local legend in Whispering Bay.
When she find out J.W. Winchester is coming to town she cant wait to catch an imposter in the act. Will she be able to prove he's an imposter and keep everyone in town alive?

If you love cozy mysteries with strong and determined female leads, laugh out loud scenes, a heartwarming love story, and a

This series of cozy mysteries is so hilarious, I laughed out loud! Stranger Danger is full of snappy dialog, quirky characters, madcap situations and a murder mystery to boot. Lucy bakes muffins for her Bistro but she ends up deep in intrigue and murder in each book. This time, reclusive author J.W. Quicksilver is due to make his first public appearance in little old Whispering Bay, Florida. The head of the book club is beside herself, but Lucy smells a rat. And with her special talent as a ...more

There's always a twist. Intrigue takes a humorous turn in a sweetheart of a town. Geraci stirs up trouble with her own brand of over the top suspense. Stranger Danger will have your emotions all over the place. Lucy and Paco are different kind of investigative duo. They don't go looking for the trouble that never ceases to find them. With murder on the menu and danger on the horizon, life is forever interesting in Whispering Bay.

Oh boy, do I love the Maria Geraci books about Whispering Bay. There are several but they certainly can be read as standalones. If you have read any of the previous murder books, it is fun to continue to read about this little town in Florida. Lucy owns a bakery specializing in mouthwatering muffins. Her dog is a cadaver finder and in each book, he finds the body. These are fun mysteries and I love figuring out “who dun it” in these books. They are very light reading and most of the time can be ...more

Enjoyed reading this addition to the Lucy & Paco adventurous mysteries in Whispering Bay. I am glad that romantically a decision was made, I've been riding the fence about it, lol. I went back and forth about that mystery but the author does a smooth job of making it the sensible choice and I can't wait to see where that goes. The identity of & the mystery surrounding the infamous J.W. Quicksilver really stirs up things. I think Lucy needs a vacation after the many twist her sleuthing ...more

Nobody combines humor, suspense and romance and muffins quite the way Maria Geraci does. I love the Whispering Bay Mystery series. She keeps you guessing in the romance department as well. I highly recommend this book
Nov 17, 2019 rated it it was amazing
This is the best yet in the series. I am happy that Lucy makes a personal decision in this book. I am happy with who she chooses too. Pace is again an awesome dog in this book. Lucy finds another killer but like all her mysteries it takes some work to figure out who it is. Makes sense once you know why the person did it. This was another fun book to read. I can't wait for the next one.

I am not ashamed to admit it, I have loved every story that has taken place in Whispering Bay. No matter rather it was romance or cozy mystery, I have loved them all including the latest by Maria Geraci, Stranger Danger, Whispering Bay Mystery #4. I love Lucy, wishing I could stop in her bakery for muffins and I simply adore Paco.

Of course, there is a murder again in this small town but for me that wasn’t the biggest suspense. That is solved by the end with Lucy and Paco’s help. The biggest

When is enough enough?

Another fab read in the series. She becoming more centred, even if more confused about her love life. Whilst Paco is as smooth, debonair and self assured as always. The plot is based on a con. A con based on the fact that Will hasn't revealed his status as a famous author. Now a fake author has agreed to do a book signing and has arrived with his PA. However she gets suspicious when she finds out that wannabe authors are handing over money to have their work 'published'.

Welcome back to Whispering Bay where Lucy the human die detector and her faithful, I find dead people, dog Paco are up to no good. It seems that Lucy's spidey sense are on alert. Everyone seems to be lying to her. Of course Paco finds the elusive JW Quicksilver, dead. Only he is not the real writer. The hunt is on. The local police and the FBI are on the case. In the meantime, Betty Jean's home is a crime scene. Lucy graciously offers her the spare room at her place. Betty Jean, you either love ...more

Absolutely fantastic! Another great mystery in Whispering Bay! New readers will fall in love with Lucy, Paco, Will, Travis, and ALL of Whispering Bay! Returning readers, like me, will enjoy new twists at the beachside café, with Lucy and her friends, and certainly at Betty Jean's book club. Betty Jean has invited the famous author J.W. Quicksilver to town and everyone goes crazy to host this reclusive author. The man turns out to be an imposter and then Lucy and Paco use their skills and find ...more

I really like Lucy. She's trying to run a muffin cafe, while at the same time, she's solving murder mysteries in her small town. Her best friend Will has a secret to keep and they are both coming to terms with a new relationship. She's also attracted to Travis, who is with the local police department. The great mysterious author JW Quicksilver is coming to town. Lucy detects that there is something shady going on. She knows this man is an impostor and when he turns up dead, she gets involved in ...more

Maria Geraci did it again with another fun book in her Whispering Bay Mystery series that has such interesting characters too. This book was full of romance, intrigue, suspense, and of course a murder. Best of all because of all of the twists and turns I did not have a clue who the murderer was until the end. I enjoyed that this one focused on a con scheme in Whispering Bay, Florida. I received an advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

Another winner!

Lucy's best friend Will has a secret he really doesn't want to get out but someone tries to take advantage of the situation and ends up paying for it. In her usual way, Lucy solves the mystery and saves Will. Very enjoyable!

STRANGER DANGER is the latest in the Whispering Bay Mystery and it is so good. Once again Lucy and Paco are doing what they do best: making great muffins and solving murders. Only this time it very personal, Lucy must find the killer to save Will, her best friend and protect his secret. I highly recommend!
