Sticky Fingers: A Tess Camillo Mystery by Morgan Hunt
4.0 out of 5 stars A delightful Read!, Oct. 14 2007
"Tess Camillo never expected to be a sleuth. Then again, this wry lesbian never imagined someone would try to kill her...especially not with a snake. The police are convinced the incident at Tess's home was an accident. But when another woman is found murdered a few weeks later?with a snake as the culprit?Tess and her loopy hetro housemate try to unravel the mystery."

I get the impression there is a great deal of Morgan Hunt in Tess Camillo, that includes the same dry sense of humour, wry wit and droll observations in this easy-paced murder mystery that will have you page turning into the wee small hours. Glib, funny, heart-warming and heartbreaking, Hunt pulls the strings and… Read more

The Spanish Pearl by Catherine Friend
4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read!, Aug. 9 2007
When Kate Vincent and her partner travel to Spain, Kate is accidentally transported back in time...way back in 1085. What does a woman like Kate do in a world of no antibiotics, no feminism, no Diet Coke? She denies it as long as possible, then sets her mind to getting home.

In her struggle to stay alive and return to the future, Kate must flee exotic harems, filthy dungeons, and treacherous Moorish courts. But when a sword-brandishing woman… Read more

Hunter's Way by Gerri Hill
4.0 out of 5 stars An engrossing read!, Oct. 25 2006
Hunter's Way, a thoroughly engrossing read, hit all the right notes for me. The quality of writing is above average, as is the mystery/crime plotline, which is handled well giving us enough twists and turns along the way and, happily, the book is populated by a cast of fairly believable characters who don't hover too close to the usual stereotypes.

If I had to put my finger on the pulse of what makes this one work, for me, I'd say it was because the story's titled protagonists, Hunter, is this wonderfully flawed, all-too human cop with a past that illumines her from within. Add to that mixture, Samantha Kennedy, and her complicated unravelling life, and you have two characters… Read more
