3.0 out of 5 stars Synopsis - Book 19 in the Jane Lawless series, 12 Oct. 2011

This review is from: The Lost Women of Lost Lake (Jane Lawless Mysteries) (Hardcover)
From the book cover: "Restaurateur and part-time P.I. Jane Lawless is taking some much-needed time off at her family's lodge when her best friend, Cordelia, arrives with news that Tess, one of their good friends, has taken a nasty fall and needs their help with rehearsals for a play that is set to open in a week. When Tess isn't on crutches, she helps run Thunderhook Lodge, the premier resort on Lost Lake. And while she clearly needs Jane and cordelia's assistance, she isn't exactly acting all that grateful.

A man who claims to be a journalist has arrived in Lost Lake with an old photograph and some questions for Tess that go back decades. His questions have put her on edge, and when he shows up peeking through her kitchen window, everyone else is right there with her. As beloved as Tess is, there are plenty of people who don't care about any so-called journalist and are happy to protect her, but how far ar they willing to take it? And when will they need answers to questions that only Tess can provide?

Jane's only hope of protecting her friends from the secrest that are surfacing all around them is to uncover the whole truth before anyone else can."

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually disappointed minutes after having finished the book. As with the previous installment, Jane is little more than an extra in this story, and I miss her!!!

It is as per usual very well written and the plot is well thought out - but I don't feel the action and tension like I used to when Jane (with her sidekick Cordelia) was in the drivers' seat and actually had a life and mind of her own.
3.5 stars and fingers crossed that Lawless will be back in full force in the next installment!
