    more from this reviewer

    Yes, this is an amateur sleuth, but it's not your everyday type

    Yes, this is an amateur sleuth, but it's not your everyday type of mellow cozy amateur sleuth. There's some grit here, actually quite a lot of grit. I like my amateur sleuths single as a rule. No families to get in the way of the nosiness of the main character. I tend to wonder how the family of the nosy-Nellie put up with the main character not being there for her/his (mostly her) family. What did the main character do with the kids?
    Here...we know. It's spelled out and in big ol' letters. It enhances the story as much as the suspense.
    I had a hard time empathizing with Maggie. She has a good life, but wants more. I know that's the case sometimes, but she really whinged about it...bugged the pewp out of me.
    Then the mystery took over as did Maggie's abilities. She's intelligent and funny, a bit snarky, and knows her way around San Francisco.
    I look forward to more from Maggie.

    A double mystery page-turner

    Ms. Peterson gets rolling with the first line and never lets up. There's humor on every page, but you can also hear and feel the crackling current of tension that runs between her amateur sleuth, Maggie Fiore, and Maggie's husband, Michael. There's also the friction and pull Maggie feels between her commitment to the people she loves and her aspirations for herself as an individual -- you don't have to be a female, wife, or mother to feel and relate to that conflict. Oh, no! For those who care only about the whodunit puzzle, the double mystery will keep you turning the pages. In order to figure out who killed the dead guy you have to figure out what the dead guy was after with a mysterious magazine article he was all set to assign to his favorite freelance writer: Maggie Fiore. Maggie had gone to his apartment to get the scoop on the project only to find him dead. And so the adventure begins.

    A Mystery Not to Be Missed!

    The richness of references to music, art, literature and medicine woven into this engaging tale of a smart modern San Francisco woman juggling being a mom, wife, writer and sleuth make this a fun read. The characters come alive in the hands of talented writer, Linda Lee Peterson and make you want to explore more adventures of main character, Maggie Fiori.

    Terrific debut

    If you're interested in a clever plot, snappy dialogue, a setting to die for and fine writing, read Edited to Death. Linda Peterson's sleuth, Maggie Fiori, a magazine writer/wife/mother will appeal to any mystery reader, regardless of your preferred genre. You'll want to turn the pages to find out what happens to Fiori, but you'll linger long enough to savor the vivid descriptions of the San Francisco Bay Area, and pick up the clues cleverly placed throughout the locale.

    Entertaining Mystery because of Entertaining Characters

    I found this novel engaging and entertaining because of the characters that populate it. There aren't many mysteries that have a marriage within them that are central to the plot as well as a source of suspense. Maggie and Michael are definitely not Nick and Nora; indeed, calling Maggie an 'amateur sleuth' is probably an overstatement. The murder victim's relationships with the other colorful people in the book make his presence as animated as theirs. San Francisco itself is a major character and Peterson renders the city with the same skill as her other subjects. I enjoyed this book a great deal.

    A ripping great read

    I love a good mystery, and this one¿s got it all: a plot with punch and pull; rich, vivid descriptions; and cast of breathing, realized characters who swirl around the singular lead¿an oddball charmer with edges and secrets and a lot of heart. But Maggie Fiori is not the slightly embittered loner tough-chick who often stars in mystery fiction. She¿s savvy, witty, passionate, and enmeshed in a world of relationships¿husband, children, co-workers and collaborators, friends old and new. Maggie isn¿t just solving a mystery in Edited to Death, she¿s righting wrongs, making amends, enlarging possibilities, and trying to make sense of the ripple effects that occur across all relationships when one connection changes or ends. She¿s also a big smarty who knows a little bit about a lot of things. I not only learned more about the San Francisco Bay Area, I picked up a little art history, some poetry, and a sprinkling of Italian and Yiddish. I look forward to Maggie¿s continuing adventures.
