HASH(0x9cc2948c) von 5 Sternen Loved it! 22. Februar 2011
Von J. Larson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought this on a whim for my kindle, and was so glad I did! It was an easy breezy read, the writing was good and clever and not at all lame as some of the kindle books by unknowns can be. I thought the characters were well-drawn, and the kids were too funny, kept me laughing the whole way. The main character Violet was likable and someone you wanted to root for. I am certainly going to read this author again,trust me when I say this one is a thumb's up!

HASH(0x9cd78c0c) von 5 Sternen Nearly Departed in Deadwood 22. Februar 2011
Von Kimberly Rupp - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Fast read, even with my busy schedule I finished it within a week. Even though I am not into mysteries, I started reading it as I live near Deadwood in the Black Hills. You do not need to be from the Black Hills to love this book. Great story line, made it easy to visualize Violet Parker in her adventures. Loved the mixture of mystery, love, and paranormal. Ann Charles had me sitting on the edge of my seat and I want to read more, can't wait until the next one is out. How long do I have to wait Ann Charles?

An un-put-downable book! (I kept reading when I should have been doing other things.) I loved the fun, colorful characters and snappy dialogue and I'm looking forward to many sequels.

Nearly Departed in Deadwood by Ann Charles follows the adventures of Violet Parker, a single mom turned real-estate agent in Deadwood, South Dakota. Life should be great working as Realtor, but it's not. In fact, if Violet doesn't sell a house in three weeks, she will lose her job to the nephew of chauvinistic coworker, Ray.

Mr. Fake Tan is dead set on making Vi's life a living hell, constantly trading barbs with her about how much she sucks at being a real estate agent.

Just as things begin looking grim for Vi, enter Wolfgang Hessler, heir of the local Hessler Jewelry store. He requires her services in helping him sell his dearly departed mother's large Victorian house.

The news is just what Vi has been hoping for, until she shows up and finds the house needs more than a little cleaning. Desperate to make a sell and keep her job, she takes on the challenge of selling this dilapidating house. If only she knew the eerie little secrets contained within the walls of this once grand home, would she have been so willing to take it on? They say every person has skeletons hiding in their closet. Does the same go for houses?

As if this isn't enough of a challenge, she meets Dane 'Doc' Nyce, the handsome neighbor to the realator office she works in. On their first encounter, Doc sends Vi falling to his feet...literally. Doc hires Violet to find him a house, the second best news of the week.

It seems like life is finally through knocking Violet down. Not only does she have a house to sell, she has a potential buyer. Of course, nothing in life is ever that simple.

Among her troubles at work, there is a serial kidnapper going around snatching little girls that fit her daughter's description to a tee. Now she not only has to worry about keeping her job, she has to worry about protecting her children.

Overall, I found Nearly Departed in Deadwood a pleasure to read. Ann's characters have vivid personalities that are well drawn and at times, quite humorous. I found myself laughing loudly at Violet's thoughts. Her sarcastic sense of humor is refreshing and unlike any of the books I've read within the last year. It's no wonder Ann won an award for this story. Her storytelling capabilities are tremendous.

HASH(0x9da7790c) von 5 Sternen At least it wasn't expensive 26. Juli 2011
Von Sunny Leap - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Obviously, I am in the minority here but I found Violet to be extremely silly, sex-crazed, and a scarily inept mother. Her daughter matches the profile of three girls who have been kidnapped over the past year. Violet claims she is worried but instead of immediately sitting down for a talk, she tiptoes around her kids, who are a handful getting out of control. She waffles because she doesn't want to restrict them but a nine-year-old girl who steals chickens and ignores warning signs to chase after a chicken and thus falls down a mine shaft needs a little restriction for her safety IMO. I'd be a little upset if my kids advertised for dates for me, used my toothbrush on their pets, ignored my requests and were generally thoughtless, whiny or sullen. Not that I expect perfect behavior from anyone but her kids were annoying, not amusing.

Violet knows there's a serial kidnapper around and she's even suspicious about some of the men but does that mean her libido will let her reject dates with suspects? Of course not. So it was a matter of time before the kidnapper caught up with her. I barely made it to the end of the book, skimming over the last part just to see who the kidnapper was. Recommended if you like ditzy blondes blinded by lust and men who are shallow caricatures: the mysterious maverick, the chauvinist pig, the sexy villain...
