As much as I loved The Automatic Detective, I was never able to finish this one. Perhaps my affection for the noir novel soured me on this debut novel.
I really enjoyed California Schemin' by Kate George, in which a California vacation sounds like a great idea to Vermonter Bree MacGowan until a dead woman falls into her life, she's abducted from her bed, and her boyfriend disappears completely. I previously enjoyed the first mystery novel featuring Bree, Moonlighting in Vermont, and it was a treat to read a second book starring the likable Bree. The character has a humorous voice and she is loyal to her friends. Somehow, she always manages to get herself into trouble. Kate George writes in a fast-paced, light style and tone similar to Janet Evanovich. In this latest installment, readers are along for a suspense-filled ride. Why is Bree kidnapped? Who can she trust? How will she escape? I read this book in a couple of days and was always reluctant to put it down. If you're looking for a suspenseful mystery novel that will make you chuckle now and then, then pick up a copy of California Schemin' and her previous adventure, Moonlighting in Vermont.
