Editorial Reviews

Author - Chris Stout
The tone reminded me of Robert B. Parker's novels, so if you're missing the likes of Spenser and Sunny Randall, I'd say that Cheryl Bradshaw looks to be a worthy successor. Highly recommended! --Chris Stout, Author of Days of Reckoning
Author - Edward Talbot
The writing and editing are excellent, the characters are interesting, and the plot kept me hooked. The balance between action and detecting worked perfectly. The main character was a masterpiece. --Edward G. Talbot, Author of New World Orders
Author - Jack Murphy
While I've found most mystery/thrillers to be rehashes of the same old plot line, this novel was refreshingly new/original. It is a new twist on the PI murder-mystery with a few nice surprises along the way. --Jack Murphy, Author of PROMIS: Vietnam

If you love murder mystery with a woman sleuth, you will enjoy reading this first book of the Sloane Monroe series. Sloane is a private investigator who works her cases until the end. She is very independent sometimes finding herself in dangerous situations. She is surrounded by a cast of characters that make her life and the story very interesting. The author adds a touch of humor, romance and Sloane’s dog Lord Berkeley to enhance the story. Two murders, many suspects, many twists and turns….This book is fast paced and keeps you on your toes as you accompany Sloane. Make time to read as once you start you will want to keep reading until the end!!!

You have no pulse if you aren't hooked by the first scene! Sloane Monroe is a great hero with very real quirks and very real problems, plus she has a murder to solve. Or was it just a simple accident? The reader follows every twist and turn Sloane's Sherlockian mind takes, each one revealing more complexity than the last. Cheryl Bradshaw has crafted a well written, intriguing mystery which makes for a very enjoyable read. I'm off to get book two in the series, right now.

This is the first book in the Sloane Monroe series. There is a lot of action, and the story holds your attention. Each book in the series gets more exciting and suspenseful. I highly recommend this whole series.

GREAT READ! I was looking for something different to read and stumbled upon this series. This is the first book in the Sloan Monroe series. It was fantastic, and I am completely hooked. I don't know how I have never read anything from Ms. Bradshaw, but I am off to purchase the rest of the series now! This was a quick read that had me sucked in from the very first paragraph! Love the main character. She and her sidekick Maddie were great! This was very well written and well edited. There were lots of twists and turns and it just keeps getting better the more pages you turn. Thanx for a wonderful read Ms. Bradshaw, I am off to find more of Sloan Monroe! -- SPeeD
