Kurzbeschreibung

A killer wants to make certain she buys the farm. Threats, a missing boss, a very dead co-worker, a high-level investigation and a sinister hog farmer: Lowcountry Ag Department manager Carolina Slade is a bean-counting civil servant in hot water. Carolina Slade is a by-the-book county manager for the Department of Agriculture-a civil servant who coordinates federal loans for farmers in the coastal lowcountry of South Carolina. When one of her clients, a hog farmer named Jessie Rawlings, offers her a bribe, Slade reports Jessie to her superiors. The next thing she knows, she's besieged by Resident Agent-In-Charge Wayne Largo from the Feds' IG Office in Atlanta. He and his partner have come to investigate Slade's accusations, and if possible catch Jessie in the act of handing over money. However, the IG isn't telling Slade everything. The agents are also investigating the disappearance of Slade's boss the year before in connection to possible land fraud. And when the sting on Jessie goes bad, the case is put on hold and Wayne is called back to Atlanta, leaving Slade to fear not only for her life and job, but for her childrens' safety. Author C. Hope Clark, the granddaughter of a Mississippi cotton farmer, holds a B.S. in Agriculture from Clemson University and has 25 years' experience with the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Hope is married to a 30-year veteran of federal law enforcement, a Senior Special Agent, now a private investigator. They live in South Carolina, on the banks of Lake Murray. Hope is hard at work on the next novel in her Carolina Slade Mystery Series.

HASH(0x8f6a0c9c) von 5 Sternen A Slice of the South With A Whole Lot of Spice 29. Februar 2012
Von Lori Richardson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Featuring a fiery and fiesty Southern Belle with a wickedly dry sense of humor and an endless supply of priceless (and quite quotable) one-liners, you are transported into the South Carolina Lowcountry with a fresh set of eyes. The suspense is palpable from the first page to the last as you traipse through the farmlands that inhabit the outskirts of historic Charleston and get to know the people who call the Palmetto State home. While the issues in Slade's life entangle themselves, you wonder if they will ever loosen their grip or if the female protagonist who, at times, feels worn "thinner than cheap toilet paper" will herself unravel. The honest to a fault heroine is thrust into questionable circumstances surrounding her job and home life. As the two worlds collide, you are swept into a hurricane of emotions as you attempt to solve the mystery and delve deeper to discover hidden facets of lively characters who pop off of the page and onto your front porch. I found myself disappointed at the end of the book--not at all because of the ending of this enthralling plot, but because I wanted more escapades with this brilliantly illustrated character whose quirks are sure to snare even the most reluctant reader. I cannot wait for the next book in this series to further explore the adventures (or misadventures) Slade and her entourage encounter.

HASH(0x8f6a0ee8) von 5 Sternen An enjoyable read, kept me turning pages 24. Februar 2012

Long familiar with C. Hope Clark's informative newsletter, FundsForWriters, I looked forward to her breakout novel, Lowcountry Bribe, and she did not disappoint.Her character, Carolina Slade, is sassy, brave, but with real human qualities. Although the first chapter might be a bit too descriptive, Clark had me by the second chapter and I never looked back. She even handled a difficult scene toward the end of book with real skill. I can't wait until the next one (please say there will a next one). Who would have known that working for the Department of Agriculture could be so exciting!

Masterful prose tinged with suspense and just the right amount of dry humor. To be trite - a real page-turner. Leaves me hungering for more. Congrats to C Hope Clark - please keep writing!

I caught the holiday special on this book: two subscriptions to the author's newsletter and an autographed book for one low price. I definitely think the newsletter is the better of the bargain. I love this author's newsletters. They contain valuable information for writers on markets, contests, fellowships, etc. and she usually has an encouraging word to boot. However, the book....well, that's a whole 'nother matter. I wish I could say I can't wait for the rest of the books in this series but I can. I was disappointed in this story for a number of reasons: a weak main character, mystery scenes and unfulfilled promises (i.e., no payoff to the setoff).

Within the first quarter of the book, I itched to slap some backbone into the main character--Carolina Slade. I quickly became very impatient with her. Not only did she come across as weak but also inconsistent. At times she talked a strong game, but her actions and decisions never supported the talk, leaving the impression of a dependent woman who left the thinking to the men. At the end of the book, Slade's (as she's referred to in the book) best friend even tells her to take a break from men and focus on herself. When I read that I wondered if the author's portrayal of Slade was intentional. Perhaps the rest of the books in the series will show her development into a dependent, wholly functioning character.

I also had a problem with some of the scenes in the book. I eventually labeled them as mystery scenes because I couldn't understand why they had earned a place in the story. For example, in one scene, an agent shows up at Slade's office to question her about her involvement with another agent. She leaves her office during the questioning to take a restroom break and her nemesis and his brother show up outside the women's bathroom. Why?

And the last problem was unfulfilled promises. Here's an example. Slade makes up her mind to do her own investigation into fraudulent activity and what's the first thing she does...throws a temper tantrum to force another character to take the lead on the investigation. Another example is the car accident(s). We never learn who orchestrated them and why. The reader is left to suspect the two bad guys but since almost every man in the story is bad news, it could have been any number of people. I will admit though that it is quite possible that in my haste to reach "the end," I missed that closure.

As I stated earlier, I wish I could recommend this book because I just love the author's newsletters and her web site but (extended shoulder shrug with a scrunched up face)...

HASH(0x8f6a20cc) von 5 Sternen An All-Nighter Must Read 10. Mai 2012
Von EnglishGirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Threaten a mother's children and you will ignite her.

Like a number of reviewers out here, I, too, have followed the birthing process of this new mystery series by C Hope Clark from her exceptionally helpful and generous Funds For Writers newsletters. (If you aren't a subscriber, consider taking a look. They are loaded with valuable writer information.)

The cliché simply cannot be avoided here. I read this in two sittings, getting up to use eye drops for my aching eyes around 3:00 a.m. so that I could continue to read until 5:00 a.m.

This debut novel by Ms Clark is THAT compelling. Protagonist Carolina Slade must constantly do battle against US governmental bureaucrats, a pig for a husband, a douche bag of a boss, condescending federal agents and scumbag clients to get someone to handle the illegal bribe situation she gets offered.

And then her kids and family dog get pulled into the whole illegal mess.

There is nothing flat about Carolina Slade. She can feel the angst and compassion for a dead office worker, but isn't about to lay down before sniping female office workers, yet is a working professional who knows the work has to get done in spite of it all. And the best part of it--she is a devoted mom. Not an easy formula.

As I read, I kept asking myself: How much more turmoil and terror can Ms Clark fling at Carolina Slade? The answer is: C. Hope Clark flings it right up to the end, and she spares us nothing in the final storm-chased, bloody, pig-crap, and muddy revelation. Author! Author!

The sexual tension between Slade and federal-agent-on-the-case Wayne Largo is skillfully developed throughout the novel in this first in the series story, and the reader just knows there are some mighty interesting times to come in book No. 2!

Seal that deal on the second in the series, and tell Bell Bridge to warm up those printing presses.

Your newly-acquired adoring fans are waiting--most eagerly.
