Allmänna fakta



Great idea for a book title each short story from a Jimmy Buffett song title.
Some of the stories are better than others Truck stop salvation, and Smart Woman in a Really Short Skirt, were both great. And some stories also stick to the storyline or loosely to what the song is about
Pascagoula Run and Who’s the Blonde Stranger.
Anyway a fun easy read.

When I read the Dead End Job mystery series, I feel like I've taken a mini-vacation to south Florida. This was especially enjoyable during a recent stretch of bitter cold winter days. In Catnapped! Helen and Phil suddenly have two crimes to solve. The clock starts ticking on the chance to solve a murder. And there are lots of cats.

I'm not a big mystery lover, but this was closer to a cozy chick lit mystery rather than a hard boiled mystery.

After reading this book, I'm considering reading another mystery either a dead-end job mystery or a Sarah Stohmeyer mystery.

Meh. The style of writing is fine, sometimes amusing in a snarky manner. And some were beyond stupid and good taste- as in the character who never wears undies and has a wax job in the shape of a dollar sign. Please. Not funny. Just gross. I found the main character irritating because she couldn't make up her mind about anything- her love interest, her job, even who the murderer was. A good portion of the end of the book was madly whirling among a half dozen suspects with not enough information for the intelligent reader, much less the main character, to get any inkling of the truth. For a "light-hearted"'mystery, the denouement was a bit gory. Don't think I'll pursue this series.… (mer)
