A Last Goodbye by J.A. Jance

A Last Goodbye by J.A. Jance

December 9, 2016 Whitney Review 0 Comments

The Last Goodbye by J.A. Jance was a small accompaniment to the Ali Reynolds series. While advertised as such, I don’t think I would categorize The Last Goodbye as a mystery. It was more of a feel good Christmas wedding story with the mystery being an after thought. The lost and found dog, the center […]

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

October 25, 2016 Whitney Review 6 Comments

I have a confession, I was an Agatha Christie virgin. For years, fellow readers had recommended Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot but with the exception of the film Death on the Nile these suggestions went unheard. Finally, with the help of Dan Stevens, I listened to And Then There Were None. I was hooked. Agatha […]

Clawback by J.A. Jance

Clawback by J.A. Jance

September 27, 2016 Whitney Review 0 Comments

First Impressions Clawback by J.A. Jance felt like it had been ripped from a 48 hours episode. With a financial scandal that ends in murder the reader can only expect twists and turns. Impressions While Reading Like in 48 Hours, the viewer always has an inkling of the outcome as the suspect is only interviewed […]

The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith

First Impressions I was a Harry Potter connoisseur growing up. Hence, it only seemed natural for me to venture into Robert Galbraith’s Cormoran Strike series beginning with The Cuckoo’s Calling. Impressions on Detective Work There weren’t as many twists and turns as I had been hoping for and had suspicions of my own as to […]

The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh

The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh

August 2, 2016 Whitney Review 0 Comments

First Impressions Perhaps it is my obsession with Dateline, but I have a sick affinity with novels that involve women in peril. After reading the synopsis of The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh I felt it fit the bill. I thought the novel would be a cut and dry whodunit. While the “whodunit” part […]

Cold Betrayal by J.A. Jance

Cold Betrayal by J.A. Jance

February 2, 2016 Whitney Review 0 Comments

First Impressions Cold Betrayal by J.A. Jance is the second Ali Reynolds novel I have read and like a good wine the series gets better with age. Impressions While Reading I thought the subject matter of polygamy, while maybe not original, was well established with an intricate web of action. Certain aspects were a little […]

The Bishop’s Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison

The Bishop’s Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison

July 17, 2015 Whitney Review 0 Comments

First Impressions The Bishop’s Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison could have been a good mystery novel if it focused on the murder of Carrie Helm. Impressions While Reading Biddy Linda Wallheim, amateur sleuth took center stage. She had to insert her nose into everything Gladys Kravitz style. What most annoyed me was her obsession with […]
