Kate Huntington Mysteries
review 1: After having read the fifth book in this series, am beginning to go back to read from the beginning.I'm not really a fan of thrillers, nor of murder mysteries, yet, I really, really like these books. Kate is an unusual character - gutsy, smart, able to take the lead but also willing to let others lead.I am NOT a fan of the cover - to me, it looks like something from the 19th century. And I felt that where the book slowed down was all the "war councils" where everyone got to have their say. I think the story would've been tighter if they were each cut by about a third. But I liked that there was a substantial network of friends and allies working to solve this together. I also appreciated that when someone was injured (I won't say who) he/she did not immediately leap from d... moreeath's door to superheroic action figure in two paragraphs; actual time to recover was required.I found the ending surprising but not implausible, and enjoyed seeing the development of Rose Hernandez from still uniformed cop to major player.
review 2: I really liked this book. Kate Huntington, a psychologist, is a wonderful character - a strong female lead, compassionate and loyal. The author is able to shed light on some very serious mental health issues through Kate's character, but in a way that it is woven throughout the storyline/plot. The other characters, each with their own unique voice, keeps the book entertaining. These are folks I wouldn't mind having in my circle of friends. I hope they show up in the next book as well. There is plenty of suspense and Ms. Lamb keeps you guessing who the bad guy or gal is. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. less
