4.0 out of 5 stars a little cozy for a quiet evening Feb. 18 2014
By cozyfan TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had both enjoyable and frustrating moments. The plot and conclusion were a little too contrived for my liking. It was interesting to vicariously travel on the ambulance runs,, but wanted less of being in Pauline's head as she dithered over her feelings for Jagger and ER Dano. I didn't like Dano as a character though his type was well portrayed. Jagger, her roommates, and Lillla all needed more attention than they received.

I also noticed a number of misspellings and omitted words.e.g. dinning room, he shinned his flashlight, moviea . I got it for free and it was enjoyable. I will recommend it but not sure I would pay much for others in the series, perhaps that is my fault for not starting at the series beginning.

Give it a read, especially if the price stays low. I never wanted to quit before the ending, but the plot needed tweaking and re-formulating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead On Arrival Going Places on Bestseller list! July 4 2007
By Janet Halsted - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just bought Dead On Arrival, having read all the other books in the series.This is the sixth mystery that medical insurance fraud investigator Pauline Slokol works on; this one discusses issues of ambulance billing fraud. The great characters and interesting plot make this up and coming author, Lori Avacato, as excellant as Janet Evanovitch. I would recommend this cosy mystery as perfect for summer reading. Amusing and informative, I give this book five stars!

1.0 out of 5 stars Did I Get The Same Book As Everyone Else? Dec 23 2013
By Doc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This pretty much didn't make sense from the start. Perhaps I needed to read the earlier books but very little about this book made sense. Which should have been my first clue. It really went south when the main character is running from her boss (the man she is investigating) who is armed with a knife. She manages to escape then returns to the building to find him stabbed to death at which point she calmly returns to work. No one noticed her running screaming from the building. Huh?? She goes from the stabbing out on a run in an ambulance then foils an attempted murder (by a man with a shotgun by using pepper spray in her locket). Huh??

She is supposed to be an insurance investigator but everyone she works with at an ambulance service she is investigating is apparently also on the case. 1/3 of the way into the book I had no clue what the writer was trying to convey other than Jagger made her; nervous, aroused, frustrated, excited, or scared, and he was her partner. I think the author was shooting for a Ranger type character (a la Janet Evanovich) but just completely missed the mark.

I threw up my hands and quit when Pauline (the main character) states she has a photogenic memory. Huh??? So her memory looks good in pictures is that what the author meant? Who or what is Jagger? There is no character development and no discernable plot. I can't she how this would have ever made it past even a marginally competent editor.

This book did teach me that I can't look at the overall rating but need to check those four and five star ratings to see if the reviewers are shown to have purchased the book. I really wanted to like the book but just could not find any redeeming qualities. So perhaps the best thing about the book was it's prophetic title.

So glad this one was free. One of the few I just couldn't finish and will delete from my library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another thrilling adventure in the Pauline Sokol mysteries. Dec 6 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As an insurance fraud investigator, Pauline Sokol is use to falling back on her nursing background to get her case solved and her current case is no different. When the mysterious Jagger hands Pauline her sixth case, to investigate Tender Loving Care of reports of bilking the insurance companies out of millions of dollars, she knows it will take all the knowledge she has to solve the biggest case she has ever had.

While Pauline and Jagger work together to get the information they need, Pauline's attention is diverted between the baffling Jagger and the hunky ER Dano until her boss Payne ends up murdered at Pauline's feet, and she starts getting threatening phone calls from the killer. Can Pauline get this case solved before the killer gets to her? Or will her attraction to Dano be too much of a distraction for her to her focus?

Dead on Arrival by Lori Avocato is another thrilling adventure in the Pauline Sokol mysteries.

Pauline is a great character that readers can relate to and enjoy as she learns more investigating skills with each case. There is plenty of humor to be found throughout this story with Pauline's bumbling that gives it that extra bit of excitement.

Lori Avocato has done a great job in creating a story with the perfect mix of details, colorful characters and mystery that makes this book a perfect read for a hot summer's day.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love this series! April 1 2008
By Leslie Minor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love this series - although I don't like Dano the new character they introduced (hoping he is dropped because I love Jagger) I liked the story. I cannot wait for her next one- be sure to read these in order and start with one or you might be a hair bit lost. She drops people in a drop of the hat so you have to watch that book to book. (Not that I liked the other guy who I won't name in case you haven't read it) I wish she would write faster!
