Kurzbeschreibung

5 Star Review
I hope you revel in the vicarious thrills as much as I did. The plot works on all levels, the supporting cast is great, and Pawlish reveals key elements of Reeds character with light brush strokes and a master's touch.
RJ McDonnell, author of The Rock & Roll mysteries

5 Star Review
I'd recommend this to people that like mysteries. I'd recommend this to person that likes a good book. I'd recommend this to anyone who just wants to enjoy some quality time with quality material. But if you have a pressing engagement (like finishing writing your own book) - stay away until AFTER you finish, because once you start, you won't be able to put this down.
John DeJordy, author

This Doesn't Happen in the Movies isn't a typical mystery/detective story and that makes it rather refreshing...I laughed, I cringed and I enjoyed this fast-paced mystery. I look forward to reading more about Reed Ferguson's shenanigans in the future.
The Book Diva

THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN IN THE MOVIES
A wannabe private eye with a love of film noir and detective fiction.
A rich, attractive femme fatale.
A missing husband.
A rollicking ride to a dark and daring ending.

More Great Reviews

Oh how I’ve missed the Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe characters that saw me with a flashlight in the dead of night flipping pages to see what happened next. Thank you Ms. Pawlish for bringing back to life this long-lost art of the detective battling against all odds and getting to the bottom of things.
Maureen with zencherry book reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Reed Ferguson is new at his profession, he is quirky and he is a believable "character", in every sense of the word. This story is well written and laugh-out-loud good. I couldn't put it down and I definitely cannot wait for the next Reed Ferguson adventure.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Man Guy Noir Would Love. 17. November 2011
Von Kimberly Gers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
True to its description, this book delivers a wannabe detective, a femme fatale and an non-stop adventure. Guy Noir, my favorite detective, would be proud to work a case with the fledgling Reed Ferguson. Both of them are in love with all things film noir and model their style after that genre.

At first, I didn't really like the character of Reed Ferguson. A rich boy trying to be a detective and then I thought about it, if I won the lottery tomorrow, what would I be doing? Traveling and writing every summer; plus I would have the coolest classroom ever . (Yes, I am a masochist and would continue teaching.) He is doing what many of us would be doing if the lack of money wasn't standing in the way. Reed is also smart enough to know when he is being played and doesn't fall for the book's femme fatale, no matter how hard or drunkenly the women tries.

Despite, my initial reaction to Reed, the book sucked me into its world and didn't let go until the case was resolved. The last couple of pages were nice, but tied up loose ends that weren't really loose to begin with. Reed's world is tidy, but not without problems. That is to be expected in a shiny new world. Reed's neighbors, Ace and Deuce, are good guys, but how they pay their rent being idiots and working at a video store is beyond me.Yes, it is a small thing, but small things can throw a reader off. Maybe there is some secret the brothers have that Pawlish is saving for the future.

There are intricate twists and turns, but in the end both Ferguson and the bad guys get it. Ferguson receives his dose of reality and all is set right in the universe until of course his next case. And I do hope there will be a next one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Reads like a great Matinee movie 3. Juni 2012
Von laurathomas61 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This story starts off with a bang!
"I want you to find my dead husband."
"Excuse me?" That was my first reaction.
"I want you to find my husband. He's dead and I need to know where he is." She spoke in a voice one sexy note below middle C.
"Uh-huh." That was my second reaction. Real slick.
Renee's writing style reads like a noir film. Like a great Bogie movie. It is no surprise that Reed Ferguson, main character and P.I. in the story, is a fan of Bogie. He prefers old movies, especially detective film noir, and dark women.
When Amanda, the client, walks into his office, the first thing he thinks is "Trouble". She is a major flirt. It's never a good idea to mix business with pleasure.
Honorable mentions to brothers Ace and Deuce, the comic relief team. Kept me laughing and lightened the atmosphere. Cal. Get a picture of Sherlock Holmes in your head. Got it? That's Cal, Reed's friend. He helps dig for the dirty little secrets in the investigation. I had many a grin with their back and forth banter.
Despite all of the warnings to drop the investigation, Reed persists and ends up in a world of hurt. He does not get through this without being battered and bloodied.

My body was screaming at me, sore in too many places to count. "I feel light-headed." I blinked hard at Forbes.
"Hey, buddy, you're bleeding."
I began examining myself, but didn't see anything.
"No, back there."
I craned my neck around, exploring my backside with my hands. "Oh, man! She shot me in the ass?" I couldn't believe it, but it was true. My rear end suddenly hurt like nobody's business.
Agent Forbes tried to hide a smile. And then I fainted.

Witty sarcasm and tension oozes from the pages. This book looks and smeels like an Alfred Hitchcock movie. I ate this up and immediately moved on to the second book, Real Estate Rip-Off. I have also posted a review for it here on Amazon.
Don't miss out on this well written mystery novel, packed with action and thrills.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Reed rocks. 15. November 2011
Von Darlene Jones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Reed Ferguson, a "wanna be" Bogie, emulates his heroes of old films and sets himself up as a PI. His first job is to find a missing husband. Simple, right. Not for Reed. Soon the bad guys (in this case women) are after him intent on his demise, then the Feds want him out of the way as he's interfering in their investigation. Reed is a likable young man and you soon come to care for his welfare.

I'm not a huge fan of detective books, but I enjoyed this one very much, likely because Renee has a deft touch with the genre. Her style is not to hammer the reader over the head, but rather to use subtly and light touches of humor appropriate to her story and wonderful references to old movies. But underneath all that there is a serious story with surprising plot twists. Her subtle touch and sound mechanics make for a nice flow and a smooth pleasurable read.

Von BJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This is an enjoyable, different mystery story with unusual characters and storyline. There was some tongue in cheek dialog with strange twists and turns. A fun read.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Cheeser, Cheeser 14. Oktober 2013
Von Chromey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Was a fun read, but a lil cheesy. Amusing characters, and some good action in parts. Forgettable story though, and too familiar.
