Val & Kit Mystery Series
review 1: I probably would never have come across this book if I hadn't been introduced to these ladies via Twitter. After reading some of their blog posts and having a few discussions with them online, it was a no-brainer for me to download this book during one of their free days and give it a try. I'm so glad I did.For anyone who is hesitant about reading this because it's written by two authors - and I'll admit I was skeptical on how that would work out - don't be. It's impressive how the writing flows and it truly sounds like it is written by one person. Very cohesive and easy to read.This book has a little bit of everything: friendship, mystery, romance and a lot of humor. The authors have a knack with their descriptions and are really good at character development, both ... morewith the characters specific to this novel and with the ones that will continue throughout the series. The mystery aspect was well developed and kept me guessing.This was a very enjoyable read and I'm looking forward to Val and Kit's next adventure.
review 2: Middle-aged, Real Estate Agent Valerie Pankowski receives a phone call from a forgotten classmate that could result in a sweet listing for the firm. Before Valerie can get the paperwork done, her former classmate, Mavis, disappears and is later found dead from an apparent suicide. Valerie doesn’t believe that Mavis committed suicide and becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to her. Valerie and her old school chum, Kit, dangerously delve into Mavis’s private life and uncover a secret identity far away from her hometown of Downers Grove. Meanwhile, Mavis’s wealthy relatives aren’t happy to find two inquisitive, amateur private investigators digging around in their family business. Valerie doesn’t give up until she hears a shocking confession from the murderer whose identity no one would ever guess.Valerie and Kit are witty and entertaining characters constantly on the move. This is a well-written mystery that reads along at a bright and cheerful pace with a surprisingly dark twist at the end. less
