I do love a good mystery - without the gore - hopefully that is the case with this one. Starts out looking good to me --

"But he was still a good heart, with the demeanor of an unmade bed."
Now that's a good descriptive line even at this early hour - this may be my book for the week. I like this woman and her "adult playpen" -- Will definitely look into more of her books -- but the author's name - - Taffy ? -- well one I won't forget anyway --

Are there no other mystery readers out there? Do you not like or just reserving judgement?

Doris - I am a HUGE mystery fan (you should see my book shelves) and I tend to enjoy detective novels, but this one, well, it just isn't doing it for me. The first day had potential but I've slowly lost interest thus I have very little to say about it.

I do enjoy all your commentary throughout all the clubs. I too am a member of the fiction club and the romance club. Be talking to you! :)

Interesting story but adult language is not necessary to get across the points. These stories need to be cleaned up.

I agree. Why use profanity when the story can be

told without it ?

I really like this one so far and I don't see a reason to change my mind. I'm definitely requesting it from the library.

I agree with you. I am going to see if my local library has it. If not I will go buy it. Can not wait to read the rest of the story.

This one seems too familiar

I adore murder mysteries, and my library specializes in them. I've read hundreds in the past few years. Maybe I know this writer and don't remember?

For me, two things make a mystery novel good - three things, if I count excellent writing. I missed all of them here: a "round" detective, a context that interests and informs me, and a compelling writing style.

I will most certainly be finishing this book. I thought it was great. I work for attorneys, although not sleazy ones, so there was actually some comedy to the book for me. Looking forward to completing it. Thanks.
