    Dead Hot Mama

    Fifth in the the series of Loon Lake. As usual, the characters are developed in such a way, you really want to know them. Actually, some of them are like people you've already incountered. The plot raced all over the place but I still like the Loon Lakers.

    Another Great Mystery from Houston

    Paul (Doc) Osborne is back in Victoria Houston¿s enjoyable fifth Loon Lake Fishing Mystery. Things are looking up for the retired Wisconsin dentist, as not only does he have a fishing date with the attractive Police Chief Lewellyn Ferris, but he¿s also able to spend Christmas repairing his relationship with his estranged, recovering alcoholic daughter Mallory. Unfortunately, things start to go downhill when his dog Mike leads Doc to the beautiful body of a strip club¿s bartender. Then, his date with Lew is cut short by the gruesome discovery of two more bodies, this time both missing their legs. Saddled with a coroner who is the incompetent relative of the county board¿s chairman, Lew once again looks to help from Doc in what has become a truly gruesome scheme that is as horrific as it is profitable. This is another enjoyable mystery from Houston, who brings back the charming fish-hat-wearing Ray Pradt, who has as many illegal pursuits as he does undercover legal ones. Doc¿s relationships with his grown daughters has also evolved throughout the series and sheds a soft light on his character, especially when he begins to fear that Mallory is showing a little too much interest in Ray. The plot twist involved is original, with suspense building quickly to its exciting conclusion. This is a witty, humorous, and extremely engaging entry in what has become a great series.

    Book # 5 in the series-good.

    I would have rated it 5 stars, except for the fact of some of the medical jargon and what was behind it. It made it hard for me to follow. This book was not "smooth" reading like the others. But because I did enjoy the others, I will try at least one more. I also can't wait to see what happens between the characters. They all have realistic relationships.
