Synopsis

Reading The Shadow of Her Smile was like slurping a long, cold lemonade on a sultry, summer day - I couldn't devour it fast enough! The story started off with a bang, and grew increasingly suspenseful as Victoria Taylor Murray drew me into her exciting plot with the ease that only the best writers can achieve. From Trump Tower to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel to Little Italy to NYPD and a grandmother's run-down mansion, she painted a New York seldom seen by outsiders. I especially relished the historical vignettes of The Big Apple woven in at appropriate places in the story. Although many of the supporting characters were ultra-worldly - obviously shallow, greedy, and lustful - each one was unique and thoroughly fleshed-out. Even billionaire Forrest Gray - who set the stage for this novel when he hired Corbin Douglas to find Nikki Rourke - became larger than life as Murray wielded her magic pen to craft him. Through all these marvelous, mixed-up, often malevolent characters, Murray captured the true essence of the city's diversity of cultures and life-styles. And the hero and heroine were to die for! Corbin, a cop-turned-private-investigator, is every woman's dream: handsome, strong, and sexy, yet kind, caring, and ethical, while Nikki is the beautiful, charming, smart, gutsy, red-haired woman who is at the center of everything. Corbin hooked me right from the start, but I had to wait awhile to meet Nikki. The wait was worth it, and she quickly won my heart by the tender, loving manner in which she cared for our hero when he was injured. And then there's Charlie, Corbin's friend and former partner, and the love-of-his-life Bette. What a joy it was to meet them. Of stronger moral fiber, these four characters more than made up for the "indiscriminate" behavior of the minor characters. They became so real to me, I'll think of them often in days to come. The excitement was nonstop as Corbin searched for Nikki - "a woman in a photograph" with an unforgettable smile - overcoming death-defying, breath-stealing obstacles to help her. This well-written, fast-paced story has everything: believable characters, realistic dialogue, suspense, romance, and "original" humor. When Corbin, told his former partner, "I have a headache the size of Stephen King's Buick 8," I laughed out loud ...a welcome relief from the tension of the book's drama. The Shadow of Her Smile takes you through a series of twists and turns that makes your goosebumps sprout more goosebumps as you question: Who are the dead dancers? Who is killing red-haired women? Are they after Nikki too? Will Corbin find her in time or will she be the next victim? What's going on with the billionaire's wife? What does the chauffeur's "pretty-boy" son have to do with it? And the gangster and his hit squad? Is it all connected? The very talented Victoria Taylor Murray won my heart with this book. I join her growing legions of fans in applauding her on penning another winner. My one regret is that I didn't discover her from her very first book. - Betty Dravis, author of The Toonies Invade Silicon Valley

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beguiling 3. Mai 2005
Von Regina Pounds - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As beguiling as her heroine's smile, Ms. Taylor's newest mystery is a novel that entertained me. Easy to read, this book has all of the elements that created a fan base for the author. Yet, with The Shadow of Her Smile, Ms Taylor has come to a crossroads. The over-the-top, soap-sudsey, often hilarious style of the Lambert Books I found utterly delighting and totally gutsy has been toned down in this new book which begs to be taken more seriously.

The three main characters, Nikki, Corbin, and Charlie are well drawn and I liked them a lot. The interaction between Nikki and Corbin charmed me. As for the mystery and plot, we shall leave that alone. I wouldn't want to spoil surprises.

To Ms. Taylor, I say, "You have a knack for story telling. Whether you decide to improve your craft and get serious or to stick to the earthy, unstifled, and joyous writing that won you so many fans, you'll succeed as an author."

I look forward to reading many more stories by this gracious lady.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Realistic Characters, Indepth Descriptions, Page Turner 30. April 2005
Von Janet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a wonderful novel to relax with. You find yourself believeing these characters are real. Nice people stand out drastically against the corrupt rich society they must mingle with.

The heroine is childlike, humble, non-judgemental. However, she is intelligent. You find yourself rooting for her as she realizes that she can no longer trust anyone who is close to her because any of them could be the one who wants her dead.

Victoria Taylor Murray creates a world of beautiful redheaded women who could pass for clones of different ages and social standing. She keeps you in the dark as to whom the killer until the end.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Road To Murder 28. April 2005
Von MaryLou Raymond - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A former French Playmate of the year, exotic dancer, and a rich man's wife, soon learn the road to fame and glory is riddled with betrayal, can the same road lead to murder as well?

I really enjoyed this book and think anyone who likes mystery stories laced with the perfect touch of romance will have as much fun as I did while reading, The Shadow of Her Smile. I'd say Ms. Murray has another winner on her hands with this story.
