Kurzbeschreibung

8. September 2010 Samantha Sweet
New from Amazon.com bestselling author Connie Shelton, another mystery series! Samantha Sweet breaks into houses for a living, and the things she discovers often lead to trouble. When she finds an unmarked grave on a property in a remote spot near Taos, New Mexico, Sam calls the authorities. A dead body is more than she wants to deal with. A small mural painted inside a closet in the abandoned house provides clues and Sam is caught up in an investigation along with the good-looking Deputy Beau Cardwell. A fortune in artwork, a bogus will, and a wooden box that seems to give Sam powers she never dreamed she possessed--it all adds up to a dynamic paranormal romantic mystery. Praise for Connie Shelton's previous mysteries: "Shelton, a major success for Intrigue, can only expand her fan base with this solid effort." --Publishers Weekly "Shelton continues to combine suspenseful storytelling with sensitive portrayals of complex family relationships." --Booklist "Shelton again has done a superb job in bringing New Mexico to life." --Albuquerque Journal "Connie Shelton has another winner!" --The Book Report

3.0 von 5 Sternen Triple Chocolate Kahlua Cupcakes 5. Oktober 2010
Von Margaret Lake - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Any book that has Triple Chocolate Kahlua Cupcakes on the first page has to be worth reading.

This is a cozy mystery set in Taos, New Mexico. Samantha Sweet is a part-time caretaker of foreclosed properties, but she wants to start her own bakery business; Sweet's Sweets.

In the course of her caretaking duties, she finds a dying woman with the reputation of being a witch and an unmarked grave at another property. Two in one day? A little too coincidental, but that brings the police into the picture in the person of Beau Cardwell, the love interest.

I didn't have much feeling for Sam until she talked about her early years (she's in her 50's here) and how she ended up in Taos with a daughter. Then she became more real to me.

It wasn't too difficult to figure out some of the elements of the mystery, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's always nice to find out you are right.

I gave this three stars because there was just too much description of housecleaning and cake icing. Otherwise, Sweet Masterpiece is a well-written enjoyable read. If you want to relax for the afternoon, this is a nice book to do it with.

Unfortunately, there was no recipe for Triple Chocolate Kahlua Cupcakes in the back of the book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Makes me homesick for New Mexico 22. März 2011
Von Laurie (Cat Herder Extraordinaire) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wow, this was an incredible book. I felt like I had been transported right back to New Mexico.

Characters - I thought all of the characters in the book were well developed and well rounded. It took a little while to get there but the details were fleshed out nicely and the characters seemed very real. I lived in New Mexico for a number of years and I thought that the author did a brilliant job with the characters and captured the essence of living in New Mexico. Some of the characters reminded me of friends that I have left back there.

Plot - This book grabbed me from the first couple of chapters and kept me reading straight through to the end. The plot advanced very nicely with no stumbles or illogical twists or turns. I felt the pace flowed very well and kept me interested at every point in the book. I felt no desire to skip ahead in this book.

Language, sexual content, violence - NONE in this book. There is a budding romance and it doesn't include every detail of what they do. There is no swearing and no violence in this book. It would be a good general audience book.

I have already started the second book in the series (which I downloaded as soon as I finished the first book). The characters are very likable and the book has a "down home" charm to it. I did feel like I was back in northern New Mexico with some of my friends. I hope the second book is as good as the first one was. The book was very professionally done. It also had no formatting, spelling or grammar issues.

The only thing that I would have loved to have seen in this book were a mention of the interesting "Cow Crossing" signs that are all over Taos...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Murder Most Sweet 19. Juli 2011
Von Melanie Jackson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
What a fun read! Sam has unusual careers-- government-sanctioned housebreaker and baker. The housebreaking is just until she get enough money together to open her own bakery, but as we all know, money is in short supply these days. Though cleaning repossed houses is usually more boring than scary, Sam manages to find two bodies in the course of one day. Could the deaths be related? There is a little surprise visit for those who read Shelton's Charlie Parker series.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Don't ignore the "magic" part of the book summary.... 26. Dezember 2011
Von Madagascar Mama - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I guess I'm a mystery "purist" in the sense that I want brain work to do all the deducting without any paranormal assistance. Somehow I didn't take literally enough the use of the word "magic" in the book description, so when it started to become a *major* part of the plot-line - well, it was a turnoff.

I found the main character's job as a house "cleaner" for re-possessed homes a fascinating side-note to the story and a great way to explain all of Ms. Sweet's unusual talents; e.g.,picking locks.

If the rest of the series indicates an ongoing reliance on the paranormal, this will definitely be my last Samantha Sweet mystery (though I wouldn't mind a few of those recipes for the baked goods she whips up!).

2.0 von 5 Sternen Sweet Masterpiece 26. Januar 2013
Von A. Riley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read about 50 pages because the story is well written without awful cliches. But, when I came to the mystery box that let out puffs of smoke and had strange powers, that did it. I can't find any pleasure in reading about demons' powers in magic boxes. If there had been any indication of this in the review, I would have never ordered it. I couldn't wait to delete it from my library.
