Sept. 2 2008 Katie Mcdonald Mysteries
It's February in the small town of Granville, New Hampshire, and Katie McDonald, math geek and curator of the Avondale Puzzle Museum, is up to her ears in snow and the First Annual Avondale Sudoku Challenge. What began as a small event, geared toward regional Sudoku clubs and individuals, has grown to include competitors from up and down the East Coast.When the Sudden Death Champion is found "suddenly" dead, Katie is forced to deal once again with chief of police Brandon Mitchell. He wants to close the fair for the rest of the weekend, but that would be disastrous for the museum. And besides, Katie thinks, all the suspects are already in one place ... . How hard can this be to solve?

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Awful Oct. 28 2009
By Issie's Mom - Published on Amazon.com
I picked this up at the library because it looked interesting-- I like Sudoku and love mysteries. But wow, this is terribly written and terribly boring (although I must say it did help me fall sleep every night). The main murder plot is not developed very well and has a completely predictable ending. But what bothered me the most were all the typos and misspellings in the book-- the editors should be ashamed of themselves! It's not the worst book I've ever read, but I won't be reading anything by this author again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sudoku and Murder May 14 2009
By Dawn Dowdle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Katie McDonald is the Avondale Puzzle Museum's curator and is sponsoring The First Annual Avondale Sudoku Challenge. Lots of people are attending and participating in the challenge. She has gotten many of the local businesses and residents to participate in making the challenge a success.

Scandal soon rears its ugly head when Katie is made aware of a cheating scandal related to a top challenger, Gordon Lott. Katie's Aunt Pru thinks he would make a great husband for Katie. She's always on the lookout for a husband for Katie. Katie watches Gordon as he competes and doesn't see him cheat. Even though some of the locals who know his past want him disqualified, Katie lets him continue to compete.

When he makes a mistake and loses, he is quite upset. With a snowstorm bearing down on the town, everyone leaves quickly from the first day of competition. When they arrive early the next day to finish the clean up and setting up, Gordon is discovered dead in the snow. Police Chief Brandon Mitchell wants to shut down the competition. Katie and the local merchants have too much at stake and she finally gets him to agree to keep it open.

When the prime suspect turns up dead, things really start to heat up. With everyone going home after the competition, investigating proves to be much more difficult.

Plus there seems to be tension between the Police Chief and Harry, Kate's teenaged assistant, who lives with him. Kate worries that this tenuous relationship she's pushed upon them will not last.

Can Kate and Harry help the Police Chief without putting themselves in any danger and getting him upset with them?

This is such a fun series. I'm not a Sudoku lover, but I love the setting, the characters, and the plots. The writing is so great that I just fly through each book. While I enjoy that, it means I'm soon waiting another year for the next book! I hope this is a series that goes on for years. Kate, Harry, Brandon, and Pru are such fun characters. Plus the other puzzle lovers and locals really round out the cast of characters.

I highly recommend this book and series.

3.0 out of 5 stars A BIT OF A LET DOWN Feb. 2 2009
By SJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I REALLY ENJOYED THE FIRST BOOK IN THIS NEW SERIES. IT BEGAN A LITTLE SLOWLY BUT SOON PICKED UP THE PACE. I EXPECTED THIS SECOND BOOK TO KEEP UP THAT MOMENTUM. I WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED WHEN IT TOO BEGAN SLOWLY, BUT BECAME VERY DISAPPOINTED WHEN THE PACE NEVER INCREASED. IT WAS A RATHER DULL AND DREARY READ COMPARED WITH BOOK ONE. EVEN THE CHARACTERS LOST THEIR ENTHUSIASM. MY FINGERS ARE CROSSED THAT THE NEXT BOOK WILL BE MORE ENJOYABLE.
4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Bad Follow-Up Sept. 26 2010

I really did enjoy this book, which was a fast read. I did figure out one of the main plot points early on, but the murderer & the exact motive didn't come to me. I enjoyed getting to know the townspeople a little more, especially Nancy & Ginny Sue. Although I know that Aunt Pru loves Katie & wants the best for her, I was getting really annoyed at her and wishing that Katie would just stand up for herself. I'm hoping that the third book, Serial Killer Sudoku, will bring a resolution to Katie's romantic problems and possibly the happy ending for another local. And I wish the town would take some steps into the 21st century!
