Review: Don't Go Home by Caroline G Hart


(Death On Demand Mystery Series)

Max has left home for a week. He's on a trip with buddies, fishing and having a wonderful break.
Annie Darling has a little more "me" time and hasn't decided what to do with her free time. That is until a knock at the door of "Death On Demand Bookstore" changes everything.
Alex Griffith wrote a bestselling novel and Annie always tries to never run out of copies of his books. He was raised on Broward's Rock.
When Rae Griffith knocks on the unopened door of Death On Demand and wants Annie to host a book signing for the famous author Alex Griffith, Annie agrees. This will be great and keep her mind off Max's away trip.

What she didn't know is that Alex planned on writing a sequel to DON'T GO HOME and that it will reveal secrets. Tons of secrets, some long buried, some in his own family and he Alex doesn't care who doesn't like the idea.
However, Annie does and she decides against having anything to do with the lecture, signing etc.....

Secrets hit to close to home for Annie when Alex is murdered and the suspect list is almost as long as the population of Broward's Rock. Among the list of things to hide is reporter Marian Kenyon and Annie refuses not to help Marian.

The thing is she had promised Max no more snooping. Annie never breaks a promise to Max and her trio of help are on a cruise. She is pretty much on her own and when more murders happen she knows it's up to her and Marian to get to the bottom of the murders.
DON'T GO HOME gets a *********** star review. I loved this book and all of it's shadows.

Upside Down Post:

Yurn your frown upside down into a smile as this post is for those who do not enjoy the family gatherings at Christmas. You know who you are and why but today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun.

This is a "Would you rather" reply when someone asks what you would rather do get through the holidays than spend it with family?

1. I'd rather drop a house on my sister.

2. Have a root canal

3. Eat fruitcake even the store bought kind.

4. Have my neighbor tell me about her colon in great detail

5. Dust

6. Watch my cat chase and kill a mouse

7. Hear the neighbor's dogs barking all night long.

8. Shovel snow

9. Open my prezzies and discover everyone sent me clothes two sizes too small. What is family for but to get the sizes wrong even after they call and ask.

10. I'd rather read a good murder mystery set at Christmas this would make it a killer holiday for me.

Okay you all come up with your own funny list and I can't wait to see what you have. Oh one…

An Interview with Frances Brody

MM: Frances, give us the back story on how and when you became an author?
I started by telling stories. I’d walk home from school with a friend and spin some tale that would last till the parting of our ways at the corner shop. In my twenties, I wrote stories that were published in magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio. I then wrote radio and theatre plays and scripts for television. My first novel was based on stories told to me by my mother.
MM: Tell us about what you are currently writing and what has been released?
I’m editing the eighth Kate Shackleton novel, Death at the Seaside. My setting is Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Whitby is where Bram Stoker has Count Dracula land in the Russian ship Demeter in the shape of a black dog. Dracula doesn’t appear in my story. But if he did, Kate Shackleton and her trusty assistants, Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, would deal with him.My latest release in the US is Kate Shackleton #5, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In the UK, it’s #7, A Death in the…

Review - Yellow as Legal Pads by Fran Stewart

Biscuit and Bob are on their honeymoon when Bob tries to help someone dying with resuscitation efforts that leave him poisoned and in ICU.

The story time hops a lot and introduces a lot of characters and isn't really your typical amateur sleuth asking questions all over town.

It is a series of pieces out of the life of the Holvers family and events that led to the current situation she and Bob are in.

It is interesting and complex at times but satisfying as the pieces come together.

I saw several reviews where the number of characters and time hopping frustrated readers and I admit, I had to pause a few times to make sure I was in tune to everything going on, but I thought it was fun a non-traditional which was a bit refreshing.
