“Geared for the Grave” by Duffy Brown – my review :)

16 Comments

Or perhaps not much of a review, as I am in a totally thrilled state after I finished it! What a great entertainment! What fun! Six stars out of five 🙂 Makes me want to plan a trip to Mackinac Island right this minute!
Absolutely loved the characters, the reluctantly friendly Islanders and Evie, the protagonist 🙂 The interactions between people described in the book were so life-like, I had no problems picturing them in my head 🙂 and the mafia retirees? Oh my!!! 🙂
At times I was knocked out by the speed of this book, by its colorfulness, descriptions of people and places – just brilliant, spot on and to the point 🙂 I did not think it`d be possible to put such a variety of characters into one book, and still make it so much fun, but Duffy Brown proved me wrong so much!
As to the “whodunit” part – I usually like to try to deduce as the plot goes, and here I actually had the right suspicions at one point but then I wasn’t so sure anymore, and it went 😀

Perfect, from the very captivating and colorful cover, to the last page!!! 🙂

I`ll be waiting very impatiently for the next book in the series!!! Will the budding relationship between Evie and Nate turn into something great? What was Nate actually running from? What will Abigail do? I mean she is still Evie’s boss after all…
