Carolyn Hart's Newest: Disappointing a Cozy Mysteries (novembre 2008)


Heartwarming holiday tale with a couple of murders being solved with the help of a ghost.

I really enjoyed Dead Man's Island by Carolyn G. Hart. If you have read all of Agatha Christie's book, you will see that it is a variation of And Then There Were None. What attracted me to this book was a cover that featured a hurricane raging against a mansion. The idea of a hurricane tearing apart the mansion did add plenty of drama to the murder mystery.

Also because I am older, I am drawn to older women sleuths.I hope to buy more of this entertaining series. It is the first of seven in this series and I have already added the second one to my wish list.

Henrietta O'Dwyer Collins has been a news reporter for five decades, she decided to retire and write crime fiction. Athletic and with an agile mind, she has covered a myriad of diasters and murders. Receiving a phone call from an old flame from about four decades ago, she reluctantly agrees to the plea for help from Chase Prescott, the head of a news empire. An attempt on his life has been made previously and he has drawn up a list of possible suspects. Henrietta will be joining the suspects in his mansion on his private island.

Besides the excellently crafted mystery, Henrietta entertained me with appropiately related trivia which prompted frequent lookups on the Internet. This is a thinking woman's mystery.

fast paced thriller set mostly in Mexico, where an Egyptologist from her museum is sent to return a valuable Aztec manuscript to its owners, but then the bad guys turn up

After 40 minutes, I simply couldn’t take any more. In the first 40 minutes, there were two massive listings of mystery writers. Each one no less than ten names. This followed on the heels of a massive info-dump, at the end of which, I couldn’t remember any of the introduced characters. Finally, in the last ten minutes, I was treated to an exhaustive description of one person, practically down to the size of pores on her nose.

I nearly fell asleep listening to this and I was cooking at the time.… (més)
