    A great read with a great twist

    This was a pretty poorly written mystery in my opinion You could tell a third of the way through who the murderer was though I will say his motive was a little surprising There were too many characters and story lines to follow, most of which didn t add to the plot and didn t provide any convincing red herrings While it took me only four hours to read this book, I wouldn t say it was a gripping story.Basically, there are way better murder mysteries out there.

    I would have given this book 5 stars because I thoroughly enjoyed it However, I do not like discrepancies in books and Chapter 19 has a few of them I live in the area where this book takes place and in the winter the sun is up before the quoted 8 45 a.m where the chapter opens and says that Claire is watching from a bluff nonetheless the first glow of the sun tinge on the horizon It also states that it will be another hour or so before the sun crested the land I know it is dark often h I would have given this book 5 stars because I thoroughly enjoyed it However, I do not like discrepancies in books and Chapter 19 has a few of them I live in the area where this book takes place and in the winter the sun is up before the quoted 8 45 a.m where the chapter opens and says that Claire is watching from a bluff nonetheless the first glow of the sun tinge on the horizon It also states that it will be another hour or so before the sun crested the land I know it is dark often here in the winter, but the sun does usually some up before 9 45 a.m Just sayin In that same chapter Amy works with Ted Lawson for a few hours and then reveals some news to Claire after all of that has commenced Yet at 9 a.m 15 MINUTES later , Claire is driving along thinking about the information Amy has told her Things like this stick out like a sore thumb to me in a book otherwise so well written I will read the others in the series and see what I think of those

    I like this mystery series, and Clair Watkins, the cop who lives in rural Wisconsin with her teenaged daughter and her live in boyfriend The story here is not as it would appear the two people with the most to gain are not the ones who have done the dirty deed, and the story of the crime unfolds well As I have said many times before, for me the mysteries that I like the best are those where there is an equal part of the story that is unrelated to the crime, and that is true in this series th I like this mystery series, and Clair Watkins, the cop who lives in rural Wisconsin with her teenaged daughter and her live in boyfriend The story here is not as it would appear the two people with the most to gain are not the ones who have done the dirty deed, and the story of the crime unfolds well As I have said many times before, for me the mysteries that I like the best are those where there is an equal part of the story that is unrelated to the crime, and that is true in this series the characters lives move forward in a way that a lot of series struggle with Claire is struggling with her daughter s emerging sexuality and independence, she is struggling with her middle age and what to do about her relationship with Rich If that all sounds good, then read this recommended

    I have read all of Mary Logue s Claire Watkins stories this month and each wasdisappointing Interesting story ideas and the physical setting is compelling however the outcomes are contrived The editing is terrible with lots of really dumb mistakes slipping through For example, Claire comments in Frozen Stiff that when she was in Minneapolis there was a murder a day Really A little research would have told her that Minneapolis averages about 40 murders a year In Bone Harvest, a visi I have read all of Mary Logue s Claire Watkins stories this month and each wasdisappointing Interesting story ideas and the physical setting is compelling however the outcomes are contrived The editing is terrible with lots of really dumb mistakes slipping through For example, Claire comments in Frozen Stiff that when she was in Minneapolis there was a murder a day Really A little research would have told her that Minneapolis averages about 40 murders a year In Bone Harvest, a visiting grandfather helps get the kids ready for school but the book is set in July Meg is in 5th grade when her cousin is born but a Junior in HIgh School when the child turns 4 The list goes on

    This is the first Claire Watson mystery I ve read The setting on the Wisconsin side of Lake Pepin was interesting, and I could relate to the way the relentlessly cold winter was portrayed While I liked the general cast of characters and could certainly pick up another book in the series for easy reading, I was distracted by grammatical errors and the over done character portrayal of Danielle I presume she was added for this particular plot, and is not likely to be included in future books.

    When a rich pain in the neck is found frozen nearly to death, the fingers start pointing This series mixes police procedural conventions with near cozy maybe a bit too edgy to be strictly cozy there is some blood, after all I didn t read it for the who dun it quotient, but the how will they get around to figuring it out and proving it.
