I liked this, the beginning confused me a little with a holiday scene, but then the mystery took off and I finished the book in two days...

HASH(0x907e1120) out of 5 stars Definitely one of the best of the series 14 Jan. 2015
By American Daughter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This new addition to the McKinley Mysteries was a delight to read. Even more action-packed and suspenseful than usual, this story follows Sean and Sara on a mission to rescue their friend Jimmy from an unknown abductor. There was plenty of humor, romance, danger and surprises all the way through until the very end. The sultry Jamaican setting is the perfect backdrop and I was squirming right alongside Sara during her spider encounter. Definitely one of the best of the series and a must-read for those seeking a lighthearted romantic mystery with a dash of danger.

Valentine's Day is Murder by Carolyn Arnold is the 8th book in the McKinley Mystery series and was a delight to read. A cozy mystery taking place in Jamaica with hints of piracy, gold fraud and revenge. This is a must have in the a series that takes you along for a ride with characters that touch your heart. I received this book for an honest review, and I honestly enjoyed it. Highly recommended.
HASH(0x907e15ac) out of 5 stars Where murder and love come together 20 Feb. 2015
By Kathryn svendsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This cozy mystery is Book 8 of the McKinley Mystery Series. It is a stand-alone novel within the series. Valentine’s Day is Murder begins when Jimmy Voigt suddenly disappears in the middle of dinner with Meredith, a woman with whom he had travelled to Jamaica for a holiday. Jimmy is a friend of Sean and Sarah McKinley, ex-cops turned private investigators. When the local authorities can't find anything, Meredith calls the McKinleys for help. The McKinleys immediately fly down to Jamaica to investigate Jimmy's disappearance.

This was a fun romantic cozy mystery set in the beautiful resort area of Jamaica. There was lots of action and danger as the McKinleys searched for Jimmy's abductors. Plenty of twists and turns in the plot led to the surprise ending.

I liked that the romance portion of the novel was clean.I empathized with Jimmy as he struggled and debated with himself about whether or not to involve himself in a relationship with another woman after his divorce with his wife Clara.

This is the first book in this particular series that I have read and I enjoyed the characters of Sean and Sara McKinley. They are quite a funny and loving couple. I would enjoy reading more of these books in the series to get to know them better as I found them quite intriguing.

I would recommend this book for cozy mystery readers. I gave Valentine’s Day is Murder four stars out of five.

Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.

HASH(0x907e1978) out of 5 stars Yeah, this is that good. 27 Jan. 2015
By Steve Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I read a lot of books, and in the petulance of my old age, I run across many that I toss away lightly. Life's too short to kiss boring women, to eat white bread, or to wade through bad books. I don't owe the author anything; he owes me, even if I got the book for free at the library, from a friend, or, as in this case, the author offered me a review copy.

But there was *something* in this book that had me coming back to it. I don't do that. When I toss a book aside, I rarely return. I *ought* to enjoy this book, I told myself, so I kept trying. Then I spent a week in the hospital with flu and pneumonia. I spent another week at home before I even *tried* to read this book.

And I made it through the first chapter. And the second. It was picking up speed, and I found myself gorging on Ms. Arnold's words.

Mysteries are hard to review, because you don't want to spoil them for the reader, so I won't tell you anything about the story, but it's a good story, told well. And the story is told by someone who knows how to make her writing "invisible", so that the story comes shining through.

I don't begin to review everything I read. The truly bad, I want to warn others not to waste their time. The mediocre, I figure people can find those with no difficulty. The best, I try to review carefully, because what's sauce for the goose quite often ISN'T sauce for the gander. So you've already noticed that I gave this book five stars. Who should enjoy it? Well, people who read. People who enjoy reading. People who want to be lightly challenged in solving the mystery before the answer is revealed. And who should avoid it? Well, best I can figure, that would be people who hate reading, and those who are having so much trouble breathing that they need to be hospitalized. Yeah, this is that good.

The story takes place in exotic Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I’ve always wanted to go there, but until I do, I’ll visit vicariously through this fun cozy mystery.

Sean and Sara will soon be celebrating their One year Anniversary and this will also be their first Velentine’s Day as a married couple.

Their plans will have to be put on hold when they receive a phone call from Meredith, their dear friend Jimmy’s new girlfriend, that he’s disappeared. They drop everything and fly to Ocho Riosto find him.

Sara and Sean are both former police officers and now own their own private investigation company and put these talents to work as soon as they land. All is not sunny and welcoming in Jamaica and they have to move fast to save Jimmy, protect Meredith, and stay alive themselves.

When I reached the finale and discovered the culprits, it came as a complete surprise. I’m wondering if their story was told in a previous book from this series.

This is the eight book in the McKinley Mystery Series but I had no trouble reading this before the other books. The author focused on this mystery and introduced the characters in a way that made them quickly become familiar and easy to engage with.

Sean and Sara are still in the newlywed mode and share some sweet moments. They are a bit gushy with their endearments, hence the mention of the newlywed mode.

I came away from this happy with the ending and eager to go to the beginning and get to know the characters better. To explore how they came to be where they were in this book.

A fun, fast read, that will bring me back for more of this series.

I received this book for my honest review.
