As suspect by suspect convinces you one way and then the other this highly intense mystery killing will keep you on the edge of your seat. Is Lalla Bains at the wrong place repeatedly or does her arrests and circumstances create a greater comprehensive picture? There will be many questions to ponder on as sneaky moves leave an unsettling feeling. As you uncover if the killer could be the restaurant owner himself, his daughter, or someone not too far from camp, Author R.P. Dahlke will skillfully toss you around like a rag doll with evidence hitting you on every turn.
Crime solvers- this is a must read to add insights into hearts and motives. Author Dahlke invites you to journey into her books in this series as well as previous and soon to be releases. I recommend this book with a high 5- star rating.
And so we meet up with our favorite heroine Lalla Bains, tall, blond and beautiful ex-model turned crop-duster from Modesto, California, and as usually the case Dahlke offers her own synopsis at the opening of her books- better written than any PR person: ` Lalla Bains is done with Billy Wayne's lovesick antics. The last straw comes when he litters her beloved red Cadillac with poetry scrawled on paper snowflakes, but that doesn't mean she wants the homeless war veteran to drop dead at her feet--with a pair of blue handled scissors sticking out of his chest. High fashion model turned aero-ag pilot, Lalla Bains certainly doesn't need any more distractions during the simmering summers in the San Joaquin Valley of California.Read more ›
Our main character Lalla Baines, has a secret admirer. So much so that he uses her red Cadillac as an outlet for his snowflake poetry, which is rather poetic itself. However, when Lalla finds him dead, she is perhaps to blame according to some since she was the unwanted love recipient. Not to mention she is the one who found him right by the red Cadillac with scissors sticking out of his chest.
I enjoyed the book as well as the characters. I also found out this is just one of the seven books available which means if you enjoy it like I did, there is plenty more to read!
I would buy more by the author, if the rest of the books are of this caliber. A light, pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
You have to know right from the start, that this romantic mystery also has its fair share of humour and nothing is meant to be taken too seriously, which is just as well given the quirky nature of the disparate group of characters which the author has created and brought to life, in such spectacular fashion.
That includes Lalla Bains herself. Someone more unsuited to her job as a crop duster, both in appearance and personality, you couldn't wish to find and even being au fait with her background and tarnished reputation, doesn't prepare you for her quirky dispostition and flamboyant personality. Mind you, you only have to look at Lalla's father to explain where some of her eccentricities might stem from and let's not mention her past private life! trouble just seems to follow the girl around like a bad smell!
It certainly doesn't look too good, that someone who is all set to marry one of the local police officers, should keep being discovered with all these dead bodies and involved in crime scenes, that she seems intent on solving single-handedly, much against her lover's wishes, although Caleb seems to have little, if any control, over this impatient and impetuous female, who is obviously addicted to danger, as well as to him.Read more ›
