Overview

Join a murder hunt where conflict and sexual tension is the name of the game...

Thomas Heyworth was a wealthy, internationally renowned mystery writer, a colourful character whose opinions and outspoken behaviour got him in a lot of hot water in his lifetime. Because of the enemies he's accumulated over the years, Heyworth stipulated in his will detailed plans for an amateur investigation to take place in the event of his death. When Heyworth is found dead in his own library, Evie Randall, Heyworth's possible illegitimate daughter who has lived on the Heyworth estate ever since her mother, Heyworth's former housekeeper died, becomes the primary suspect.

Seattle detective Max Galloway is sent to find out the truth and is unwittingly drawn to Evie. But the real murderer is closing in and is determined to eliminate anything or anyone standing in the way of collecting millions. Suddenly Max and Evie are in a race to solve the crime before the game ends for them both.

    Great book!

    I SO love Stillings' writing style. Her books are fun and entertaining, and she describes her characters in such detail that you feel like you know them personally. Her heroes are HOT, and the gals are not whiny, spineless wimps. The witty banter between them caused me to giggle through the entire book. I think the childhood journal entries are a fun touch, they brought back some personal memories. Highly recommend.

    No big suprise

    It is nt Mary Higgins Clark. It was a mediocre romance with a easy-to-figure-out ending.

    A friend lender

    My friends and I share books that we really like and this is one that I will be passing along. It is very well written and made me laughed out loud several times. Evie the heroine is very much a 'real' or women of 'today'. Max the hero also seems to very on target as to todays males. The 371 pages took me two days to finish and I enjoyed every moment of it.

    i loved this book!!!

    I had a really hard time putting this book down. Once I read 10 pages, or so, I was completely hooked. I highly recommend it.

    lighthearted investigative romance

    In Port Henry, Washington, mystery writer Thomas Heyworth decided to go out in style by setting up a winner take all treasure hunt in which the triumphant team obtains his considerable wealth. Thomas¿ attorney Felix Barlow explains that the will is legal and that three teams of two each will participate for the prize. If you refuse to play your team forfeits. --- The deceased¿s ward Evie Randall is teamed up with police detective Max Galloway, who hated his stepfather Thomas who ¿stole¿ his mother from him. While Evie wants to uncover who killed her beloved Thomas, Max leans towards not participating. Still he plays the game, and soon he and Evie fall in love, but someone is willing to kill all rivals to be the sole beneficiary. --- Though Thomas may feel he set up something unique, treasure hunts have been a part of novels and movies (It¿s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World) forever yet Marianne Stillings makes it seem as if this is the first time the concept is employed. The story line combines humor (Mariners, llamas, and profanities oh my) with homicides while the three teams compete. The lead couple is a delight as neither realizes how manipulative even from the grave Thomas is; only that their diverse opinion on him keeps a wedge between them. Fans of lighthearted investigative romances will enjoy reading at MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL.--- Harriet Klausner
