Book Description

3 April 2007 Regan Reilly Mysteries
A haunted Irish castle, international jewel thieves, and a hotel fire -- "New York Times" bestselling author Carol Higgins Clark has sent Regan and Jack Reilly on a honeymoon like no other! Private Investigator Regan Reilly and her new husband, Jack, head of the NYPD Major Case Squad, are off to Ireland. But their very first night at romantic Hennessy Castle is interrupted by a fire alarm that distracts hotel employees from the theft of a valuable antique lace tablecloth out of the castle's memorabilia room. A taunting note is left for Jack by the culprits -- a notorious pair of jewel thieves whom he has been pursuing for over a year. Disguised as an elderly couple, they had checked out in the midst of the mayhem. Regan's cousin Gerard Reilly, a Galway resident, is eager to help with the hunt, but their search takes as many twists and turns as the winding country roads of the Emerald Isle. With Carol Higgins Clark's unique talent for creating quirky characters, this is a classic caper that will keep you laughing, turning pages, and maybe even believing in ghosts.

1.0 out of 5 stars Like eating dry toast 14 April 2009
By Tales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I would love to tell you this book was so horribly written, that I couldn't even get through it, but that would be a lie. The story is incredibly boring, but not to be outdone by the writing. It was so uninspired I speed-read the last fifty pages, and didn't miss a thing. The plot is so full of coincidences and ridiculous connections that I could hardly wait for it to end. Even if you get this book for penny, it isn't worth the shipping. Do yourself a favor, and keep looking. There are so many entertaining and well-written books out there this one isn't worth even the time it takes to read a review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes you just want a delightful, easy read! 23 Nov 2008
By Thistle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Wondering through the store, thinking about maybe getting a book to read, one that wasn't a heavy, intense, dark story, I stumbled upon this one. I was intrigued by the cover which shows an Irish castle, I read the back cover and it sounded like it might fit what I was looking for so decided to give it a try. I was not familiar with Carol Higgins Clark but at least the story was set in Ireland, in a haunted castle, so how bad could it be?

Once I started I couldn't put it down! I loved it! Laced was a good story, with twists, turns, a bit of humor and interesting characters, told in a light-hearted manner that makes for a delightful, easy read.

After completing this book I immediately searched for the others in this series and have since read them all. Now I anxiously await the release of her next in the series, I just wish she could write them as fast as I can read them. Laced, as well as all of her stories are very enjoyable, not too dark or heavy, and perfect for devouring on a cruise or while relaxing with your feet up.

I give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!

1.0 out of 5 stars Yuck 16 Nov 2013
By Terry A. Benedict-Devine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If there was a "zero" star rating, I would give it to this book. The writing and storyline couldn't be worse. This is a Keystone cop detective story with the main characters, Jack and Regan Reilly chasing their tails. The thieves are the stars of the story. Two couples with separate storylines of thievery leaves the "honeymoon" investigators out in the cold. The stories flip flop and neither one is even remotely interesting. Brian and Sheila O'Shea are just goofing around trying to round up artwork for a client who paid them upfront and they did other things with the money. Now he is coming to collect his paintings and they are up to ridiculous shenanigans to retrieve the artwork. Anna and Bobby Marston, notorious jewel thieves, are supposedly out to destroy Jack and Regan's honeymoon in Ireland (they have a grudge against the NY investigator and cop) and follow them to their honeymoon castle. They decide to steal a framed laced tablecloth laden with a curse because its creator, May Reilly, generations before, was never paid for her work. Such ridiculous nonsense and terrible writing makes this story a complete waste of reading time. I'm thankful I never bought the book and will happily return it to its rightful owner. I say "yuck" to Ms. Carol Higgins Clark for actually taking credit for such a piece of writing rubbish.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nancy Drew Marries One Of the Hardy Boys 3 Aug 2007

Another cookie cutter script. Easy read if you have to be mindless, like commuting to and from destinations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Story just seemed to bomb 27 Jun 2008
By Scott A. Huguley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I bought this as an audio book which came on four CD's. The story started out great but by the end of the first CD it seemed to just bomb. Maybe boring is more correct. My wife and I both agreed that we simply could not go on to the remaining CD's and terminated our listening after only 1/4 of the story was complete. Maybe the story picked back up on the remaining CD's but I guess I will never know.
