Something in the Blood – Book One in the Honey Driver Mysteries

Honey Driver runs a hotel in Bath. She also collects antique underwear. As her own boss, she's in charge one day and washing dishes the next, resisting her mother's match-making attempts and managing multiple responsibilities - mundane, safe, and unexciting.
Then one day things change. Honey lands the job of liaising with the police on behalf of Bath Hotels Association. No worries, she tells herself. Nothing will happen; then an American tourist goes missing and Honey is called in to help. Despite the on/off hostility of her police opposite number, D C I Steve Doherty, she sticks to the task. In the process Honey finds out that there's more to work than washing dishes, and more to murder than malice aforethought.

I enjoyed this one - the main character is really likeable and I'm looking forward to read more about her. The storyline is quite well-structured and it's not one of these stories where you see who the evil one/culprit is after the first 5 pages. Some surprising twists and a lot of perky side-characters.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Overwhelmed But Not Bored 8. April 2013
Von Karen J. Dahood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"So who's been mugged, diddled or been sold a duff budgie?" This single over-achiever of a line captures the tone of Jean G. Goodhind's mystery series set in Jane Austen's Bath, England, where Honey Driver runs the busy Green River Hotel and bids at auction for antique underwear. This puts her into the company of Casper St. John Gervais, high-minded owner of the elegant Hotel Le Reine Rouge, who loves clocks, and a cast of reprobates and renegades who cater to the tourist trade. When Casper persuades Honey to liaise with the local police on behalf of the hotel association, she meets the attractive, D.S. Doherty. In addition, Honey's superbly-groomed, man-hungry mother, Gloria Cross, is in the picture, as is Lindsey, Honey's daughter, who mediates between them and keeps them in touch with the young social scene.

A visiting American goes missing from Fern Down Guest House, and turns up in the River Avon which slices through the lovely century city center at basement level. Honey's investigations (as a tag-a-long, more or less), lead her to the opulent treasure trove of Charlborough Grange, where the unpleasant second wife of Sir Andrew is snuggling up with his driver while her husband plays war games; next to the dank earthiness of the Limpley Stoke church crypt; and then to dark bottom stories in a remodeled Regency row. Antique clocks change hands, Queen Victoria's bloomers go on exhibit, and a hotel guest who holds a séance decides to live there permanently.

Several times I felt like I had stumbled into a board game overpopulated with 18th century names, e.g., Smudger Smith and Jeremiah Poughty. There is a ghost to reckon with and Japanese tourists snapping pictures in front of McDonalds. There were many fascinating objects to wonder about: the freezer being removed from the B&B, the spice sacks; and the fake heard rolling onto the glasshouse floor. In the end, I liked the amateur sleuth and authentic descriptions of Bath well enough to be willing to try another in the series.

This is what I like to read. Funny characters. I realized at the end that all the clues were there from the beginning but I was too interested in the goings on that I didn't put them together soon enough. Will download the next one now. I think it's going to be a good one.v
4.0 von 5 Sternen a delicious beginning to a charming cozy mystery series 18. August 2014
Von Amy S - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A historic location full of sites primed and ready for misdeeds? Check. An unlikely heroine who might just be smarter than the local police? Check wacky side characters who hamper and occasionally help our heroine? Check. Add just a dash of situational seasoning, and everything is good to go with this modern update to the classic British cozy mystery genre.

Bath hotelier Honey Driver will charm and delight you with her well-seasoned view on life and the friends and family who alternately enrich and plague her normal life as it enters a new chapter when she is appointed the hotel association's liaison with the police to help keep crime from soul lying the tourist trade in town.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Bloomers of both the gardening and underwear ilk 2. Mai 2013
Von Leapin' Literary Lurkers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The storyline has been well detailed by other reviewers so I will concentrate on my reactions.

In the complaint department:
~~I dithered as to whether I really liked Honey as a character. She did not want the liaison position initially and then got miffed when she was left out of the "real" police work. I never really bought the amateur sleuth bit, and the rationale for how she helped solve the murders was a little too pat. At times I wanted to shake her, e.g., for forgetting to charge her phone in the middle of an investigation.

~~Honey's social life received more focus than was warranted; we got the idea early on.

~~The annoying mother (and her weird obsession lining up Honey with her dentist) should have been told to take a hike.

~~"Lady Pamela" was an unbelievably drawn negative character.

~~Some of the add-ons could have been eliminated. Aside from a bit of comic relief, Mary-Jane and her séance added nothing to the story except aggravation, and I suppose "local color" given the mention of the "Ghost Walks."

~~I thought the ending was unexpectedly abrupt as things were revealed in a whirl...the very last part of the book dealing with her belabored "man issues" fell pretty flat.

I did think the author did a good job of sharing a sense of Bath history with the reader: everything from architecture, gardens, antique furnishings, clocks and...yes...the famous underwear.

Mrs. Patel who appeared near the end was an endearing character even if a tad on the deus ex machina side

Americans should be prepared for British slang and a lot of spelling variants. I blanched when early on in the book, Jane Austen's name was spelled like the Texas city (but the rest of the time was correct). Other than "affect" for "effect" and a mistake using "tow" when it should be "toe the line," the text was refreshingly typo-free.

I assume this is intended to be the start of a series and would certainly give the author another shot.

A little crime, romance, and interesting people. A very good read. I will most definitely seek out the new stories.
