Product Description

Product Description

*** My name is Samantha, a novelist who became semi-famous for stirring up trouble on my first mystery. I was about to get a lesson in unfinished business. Why did my friend disappear then years later mysteriously reappear on my doorstep? Unable to resist digging deeper, I'm thrown into a web of intrigue involving two things from my past: one I thought I'd closed the book on and one whose book is left open, two mysteries that are connected. Chaos rules as overheard conversations, innuendo, clichés & rumors fly!
REVIEWERS: "The scenes fly by, and the ending surprised me."
"Suspense, Drama, Intrigue, all the things you come to expect from this Author."
"Kept me reading into the early morning hours much like the first book”
“The dialogue is never stilted or pretentious. A joy to see many of the first novel's characters”
“A fine suspense novel and an excellent sequel to The Puzzle.”
“If you enjoy a strong and determined woman, you will enjoy the lead character named Samantha.”
“The plot develops quickly, and with humor, which made me laugh out loud!”
“I hate books that I can guess the ending and am always surprised by the endings in Peggy's books!”

More About the Author

Peggy A. Edelheit is the author of the Samantha Jamison Mystery Series, Volumes 1-5. They are mystery/thrillers about an author, Samantha Jamison, aka Sam, who writes about how she gets caught up in mysteries of her own with a touch of humor. Peggy's latest book is Volume 5.5, a true French memoir called The Riviera Is Burning. It is about Peggy's frightening experiences as the French Riviera burned out of control threatening her villa.

After years of mentally ignoring certain voices and their personal stories in her head that were interfering with her daily life, Peggy finally let them have their say, especially after her future protagonist, Samantha, finally gave her an ultimatum of either putting it all down on paper, or it could get ugly. Recognizing the alternative might not be pretty; Peggy finally gave in and has been fortunate enough to do so ever since. Now and then when they are all sitting around Peggy's imaginary mental table arguing with her and vying for her attention to air their grievances, Peggy still finds herself putting her foot down. After all, who's the author here, right? Peggy's main goal is to entertain her readers and hopefully distract them for a few hours getting lost in the pages of her imaginary world of her amateur sleuth, Samantha Jamison. Peggy has three sons, lives with her husband and spends time between Buck's County, PA and South Florida.

I haven't quite finished this one yet, but Without Any Warning is turning out to be every bit as good as The Puzzle. Looking forward to starting vol 3.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 23 Sep 2012
By Julip
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this free, together with the first Samantha Jamison book. Too many plot developments depended on crucial information being overheard. A piece of vital information was concealed and came to light in exactly the same way as in the first book. I'm not inspired to buy any more of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Again! 16 May 2011
By Pat Cervellero - Published on
You have done it again, Ms. Edelheit! Every twist and turn in Ocean City, New Jersey, was chock full of why, who and I knew I was looking forward to another surprise ending and was not disappointed. Your "old" familar characters were colorful and full of life as they arrived one by one with their own stories ending up being far from the truth! While wanting to help you, they caused you more stress than you ever anticipated in a life by the sea but Samantha always had faith in their loyalties yet always questioned their whereabouts....Enjoyed your introduction of new characters, who gradually worked their way into Sam's life...without any warning....while adding a little spice! What was supposed to be a quiet respite after the Highlands, unfolded into a nerve racking and unsettling life on the beach! What a Nor'easter! Martha was my favorite and loved the suspense created by Mona....she was a surprise in herself!
Chapter titles were satirical and true, with clever use of words and phrases... Loved the italization as in "The Puzzle" allowing the reader to get into Sam's thoughts and investigations..... Writing a book and living in the suspense of real life, Sam's novel was unfolding in front of her eyes. Hopefully, the third book is not far behind as Sam ventures into France! Hurry up!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Surprise 23 April 2011
By Edna Boyle - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Without Any Warning is a fine suspense novel and an excellent sequel to The Puzzle. Like its predecessor, it flows easily and moves quickly to an ending which is completely out of left field. By no fault of her own Samantha gets dragged into a suspense mystery while attempting to relax. A simple premise, but one that easily makes for a good story and has all manners of twists and turns. That is what a mystery is supposed to do - keep you guessing. Bringing in some of the more quaint characters from The Puzzle, Peggy has connected the 2 novels in a seemless manner that isn't a burden but helps to enrich the storyline. Even with the connection between the two novels, Without Any Warning can stand on its own for any reader who has not read The Puzzle. Peggy has discovered a simple formula that has plenty of opportunities for expansion without being repetitive. There are a substantial number of characters and each on their own could easily be the main protaganist. Each is endowed with a tiny bit of mystery in their lives. If you are looking for a fun, light mystery novel with lots of little snippets of humor, I recommend this book.

Without Any Warning was even more enjoyable than The Puzzle! The ending caught me by surprise and I found myself laughing with the turn of events! The more I read, the more I am becoming attached to Samantha and her entourage of girlfriends and cannot wait to read about their next adventure!!! Terri Huffman Billings

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Story, Excruciating Read 11 July 2011
By K. Planck - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For the price, I was able to muddle through the writing issues of the first book, but from the very beginning of this book, it was impossible to figure out what the heck was going on. There are so many excellent story elements in this book, but it's nearly impossible to enjoy them because all of the details are just thrown at the reader like a limp spaghetti noodle, and the reader is left to determine what is supposed to stick and what isn't. Oftentimes, I had to reread pages to figure out what the author was intending to describe, but was often left with confusion. What exactly do Ming vases in a beach rental house have to do with accounting fraud? Who the heck knows - and by the time this potentially great story is completely trampled with choppy writing and basic grammar errors (then/than misused), it's hard for the reader to even care anymore. By the time you get to the most cliche last line in a book ever, you can only roll your eyes. The last line is best suited for a B Horror movie, not a potentially good book with great characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the pain 9 July 2011
By E. Carpenter - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Without Any Warning: Samantha Jamison Mystery (Volume 2)I'm not a picky reader when the book was only 99 cents. I've read reviews of other books that complained about poor writing and editing but this was the first one that really interfered with my reading the book. The author's sentences are train wrecks of dependent clauses and run on sentences, one piled on the next. She repeatedly mixes her metaphors. It reads as though it had been dictated but never edited. There is virtually no descriptive or explanatory writing. It's written in the first person and is mostly dialogue, much of it the narrator's internal. The chapters are very short, 2-3 pages. She starts and stops in the middle of scenes so there's little continuity and zero character development. I found myself wondering whether I was reading the same book as the other reviews.
