A Joanne Kilbourn Mystery
review 1: Christmas in Regina, Saskatchewan. Great setting for Gail Bowen latest book. If you want to read an excellent mystery series, this is it.Christmas in Regina, Saskatchewan, takes a sinister turn that involves academic Joanne Kilbourn (married to successful lawyer Zach Shreve) in a mystery surrounding a baby and his missing mother.Delia Wainberg, one Zack's law partners, gave up a child for adoption at the beginning of her career. When her adopted parents die, Delia's daughter Abigail, a new mother herself, decides to find her biological mother. At first she only asks for medical information that might someday be necessary for her and her baby, Jacob.Later she gives Jacob to Delia's teenage daughter Isobel and disappears. The next day, Abigail's murdered body is found in her... more car. Delia's lover Nadine refuses to believe Abigail didn't want her to raise Jacob and prepares to bring a lawsuit against Delia for custody.Reading a new book in this long running series is like visiting a friend. This is one of my favorite series and I recommend it to mystery lovers.
review 2: Wow - my favourite in this series. I couldn't put it down, and had to hold myself back to not peek at the end to see if my guess was correct (it was nearly - but not exactly!). Joanne Kilbourn and her extended family are great, they're flawed, funny, quirky, grumpy, sexy, and just so real. I want a picture painted by Taylor, and to recommend my daughter work for Mieka! I even am tempted to visit Regina - and for a born and bred west coast Canadian - that is amazing. less
Reviews (see all)
Gail Bowen continues to write good, fast-paced mysteries with an usual twist. Like her characters.
This series is always a pleasant, easy read - a Canadian cosy, maybe a little too much sugar.
great to read a book based in Regina, Saskatchewan, where I lived for three years
Quick, entertaining read.
