Product description

About the Author

I was born and raised in Wisconsin, but think I’m a European. After spending my senior year of high school in Germany, I developed a bad case of wanderlust that is yet to be cured. My flying Dutch husband and I have lived in Ohio, Virginia, the Netherlands, Germany and now Istanbul. We still haven’t decided if we want to settle down somewhere – let alone where. Although I’ve been a military policewoman, a commercial lawyer, and a B&B owner, I think with writing I may have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. That’s assuming I ever grow up, of course. Between tennis, running, traveling, singing off tune, drinking entirely too many adult beverages, and reading books like they are going out of style, I write articles for a local expat magazine and various websites, review other indie authors’ books, write a blog about whatever comes to mind and am working on my fifth book.

Izzy is a widowed forty-something who likes to drink, and seems to have lost her brain-to-mouth filter somewhere along the way. When Izzy's grandma dies, she and her merry band of geriatric wannabe sleuths (aka Knitting Circle) are convinced it's murder. Plenty of mystery and mayhem abound in this entertaining little read, and the characters are loveable. The plot, pacing and character development are all done very well, and pull you right into Izzy's world. Unfortunately, errors litter the book, with missing words, incorrectly used words (desert instead of dessert, waive instead of wave, investing instead of investigating, etc). And at one point, lawyer Smith morphs into lawyer Jones, and later on he reverts back to Smith again. Also, comma usage is lacking, especially within dialogue. It's the old classic of the difference between: "Shall we eat, Grandma?" and "Shall we eat Grandma?" This is such a shame, because it lets down what would otherwise be an excellent read. For entertainment value and a fun read, this gets top marks. The book had me laughing out loud at some points, and gave plenty of chuckles along the way. If you're into chic lit, and love a good laugh, then you'll adore this read.

So, a chapter in I thought, ah this not for me. The frequent use of BFF and the words yeah and the like really turn me off books but I thought I’ll wait till the end of the chapter. Finding it a quite short chapter I thought I’ll read the second, oh and maybe the third and before long I was half way through the book, so I rattled through and finished it in one sitting. Now, normally I would dislike a book like this because of the language but there was something really fun about it. It might have been the heroine, slightly older than in most books of this genre and her gang of pensioners who are constantly on her back adding their own kooky ways of solving the crime. It may have been utterly deplorable but delightful gay best friend who had me in tears, or maybe the hot and heavy detective Noel who has our leading lady in a spin. Whichever the case this book really put a smile on my face and overall I enjoyed this book.

As the blurb suggests it follows Izzy as she gets dragged into the mystery that is her dear Grandmothers death. See the pensioners have put the clues together and deduce that it wasn’t a heart-attack but instead a planned murder. Izzy is a little surprised to say the least but as the pieces fall into place, and her house is ransacked it’s getting dangerous. Step in the hot and heady Noel. I didn’t fall for him as like many of the romantic novella style books I read, namely because he’s old enough to be my father, but I liked the relationship that spun between the two. It didn’t happen at the drop of a hat and he adored her despite her ability to get into a number of unsightly moments. I thought Izzy was warm and sweet although clumsy and a little daft at times. She is easy to warm to and feels genuine.

Murder, Mystery & Dating Mayhem is a fun easy read that certainly provides some escapism, despite the storyline revolving around an unsolved murder. It all feels pretty light-hearted though, so whatever mood you’re in, you needn’t worry about it being too heavy-going.

It’s really great to see a bit older protagonist featured, and I really like Izzy, the main character, and also Jack. They both seem like great characters – though Jack is a bit forceful at times with Izzy, in my opinion, especially at the start pf the novel with the speed dating. I get that he had her best interests at heart but sometimes it feels a bit much to me – good job I’m not Izzy then, I guess - but most of the other characters do seem quite likeable. Saying that, I don’t hugely like her boyfriend, Noel – he seems to be trying far too hard to be an ‘alpha’ male and ‘protect’ Izzy whilst calling her ‘baby’ constantly which got on my nerves a bit… sorry, rant over!

Overall, though, the story is fun and easy to read. It flows along pretty well and there aren’t any points where I felt the narrative is moving too slowly. The writing is informal and light-hearted; even the more serious issues are dealt with a quite easy-going, carefree tone which made it pretty easy to read. Izzy’s tone of voice is very casual and centres mostly on an ‘interior monologue’ kind of style, conveying most of what she’s thinking at every given moment. At times this can be a little grating; she uses some annoying exclamations and phrases which felt a bit much for me at times, as well as a lot of American colloquialisms (which is fair enough as she is an American character, I know!).

Firstly I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.

Oh my goodness! I couldn’t put this one down for a second. Izzy believes her Grandma was murdered but her death was declared a heart attack. Actually, Izzy was not a blood relation to Grandma at all. She 'adopted' Grandma who was her deceased husband's grandmother. Grandma had many friends who all thought she had been murdered and told Izzy of their suspicions. Izzy started looking into the mysterious death along with her best friend, Jack and the elderly ladies. They all wanted to help solve the crime.

As all this is going on, Izzy meets Noel through a speed dating event thanks to Jack who thinks she needs to get back into the dating pool. Noel is a detective and keeps telling Izzy to let the police solve the crime. But Izzy cannot let it go. There is no stopping Grandma's posse of friends who will not stop investigating until they find out who killed Grandma.

This is a wonderfully written mystery that I couldn't put down. The book is a great read and definitely captures the reader in the story line. I couldn't imagine how a mystery could be funny but it sure can be. You have to read this book and see for yourself.

The characters were fantastic! First we have Izzy who is kind of a klutz but is like a dog with a bone and won't let go of something once she starts it. Her hunky, gay, best friend, Jack, always has her back. Then there are the posse of old ladies who believe themselves to be detectives and are sooooo funny. I love them and how they try to help solve the crime. A laugh out loud moment for me was when they were referred to as the Ben-gay brigade.

I loved this book! It was hilarious and had me chuckling constantly.
