This is a fun read with four murders to solve. I'd think twice about moving in permanently if I got involved with four murders in such a short time. Great dogs, interesting murder mysteries, and easy to read in short spurts. Recommended to readers of cozy mysteries....more

This second book in the series expands the mystery started in book 1. It's basically non-stop action and danger, giving the reader more information about a broader conspiracy. The characters go globe-trotting from London to Miami and then to Florence tracking the culprits. Who is the mastermind behind it all?
I love the mystery, the action, and the characters. There are glimpses of romance in between the heart-pounding action just to make it interesting. Must keep reading!...more

I believe this is the best Crane and Anderson novel to date. Crane is hit with tragedy in his family and must endure painBest Crane and Anderson Novel
I believe this is the best Crane and Anderson novel to date. Crane is hit with tragedy in his family and must endure pain and loss that no man should ever face. He must learn to live again, to relate to his son, and to find the despicable character who is killing at a distance. It's a complicated crime, filled with new-fangled technology, but Crane perservers.
The author shows a depth of knowledge about the pain associated with personal loss. I hope it's not from first-hand experience, but she makes Crane's character come to life. We feel for him and mourn for him. This is the best one yet, but just keep your tissues handy. (I was given an advanced review copy and this is my own opinion.)...more

This is a fascinating and well-written second book in the series. Imagine a teenager yanked from his comfy existance on Earth and forced to become king on a world where magic actually exists. His scientific bent helps him learn to become an enchanter; he gets married and falls in love (yes in that order) all in book 1. Now Jim must behave like a king, lead an army to fight against councellors and the army that once ruled his kingdom. How does a mere teenager learn to command an army, train his wards to work magic, and save the world from slavery and human sacrifice?
It's a big job but King Jim is a quick study. He even bonds with a young dragon during the process. I know the problems are not over in the series, but this second book comes to a satisfying conclusion. Jim learns important lessons along the way--don't go exploring just because you are bored; your battle wizard is needed to protect the troops; and don't let your temper get the better of you when dealing with snarky opponents. A king must provide a good example for everyone and rule with a cool head....more
