A Mace Bauer Mystery
review 1: A fun, down-home style mystery. The writing style is cozy and homey, and while the characters bear some resemblance to caricatures, they aren't any less fun for it. The only part that had me raising my eyebrows in disbelief was when Mace purported to not know some of the most basic Spanish words like "chica." Not believable. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable read that kept me guessing as to the villain. I'll be looking for the next books in the series for a light, fun read.
review 2: I put off reading this book for a long time because it just had way too redneck-y a vibe for me to think I'd find it enjoyable. But then I read about the author being a native Floridian (as I am) and I thought, well, I should give this a go, she should be able to do "old Florida" jus
... moretice with out turning everyone into caricatures.So I was pleased to find myself thoroughly involved in this book by about 1/3 of the way in. I had to struggle a bit to keep Marty and Maddie straight, but each character very much has their own personality and for the most part, they're colourful and likeable. Of course I love the Old Florida setting. The plot was well done; a lot of red herrings and suspects, a lot of clues. Very strong ending.I'll be ordering the next books in the series, and I'm hoping for some more scenes of the chemistry sort between Carlos and Mace. :) less
