    Review: Three reasons why “Murder In The Air” rocks!

    Review: Three reasons why “Murder In The Air” rocks!

    1) Lydia Krause is my favorite super sleuth.

    There are many things that I love about Lydia Krause. At 59 years old, Lydia has many experiences under her belt. She has experienced the loss of her husband, has ran a successful business, and has received greater responsibility at her current part-time position at Carrington House. Lydia has two daughters, grandchildren, friends, and a little romance in her life.

    Lydia has a way of dealing with every person and situation with grace, even when she’s angry. I think that has a lot to do with the wisdom that comes with her age and life experiences. She’s welcoming, charming and these characteristics draw people to her, naturally giving out a trustworthy vibe, which is her most valuable asset when trying to solve a murder.

    But Lydia isn’t perfect. In this novel, she struggles with balancing the independent, decisive businesswoman in herself with her romantic relationship with Detective Sol Molina. When a Twin Lakes resident or family member confides in her about the recent murders, Lydia immediately follows the lead, even through she knows Sol won’t be happy about it. Lydia has a strong sense of community and responsibility, and that’s a very refreshing quality.

    2) I want to live in Twin Lakes.

    Marilyn created a fabulous community full of active residents who each have their own distinct personality. Lydia is open, warm, and charming. Daniel Korman is nice yet very secretive. Sol Molina is a dedicated detective, a protector and a romantic. Barbara is the reliable best friend who never lets Lydia down. Each character is so developed, they come to life, and many times while I was reading, I forgot that Twin Lakes lives only in the novel.

    Twin Lakes is such a closely knit community because the residents spend time out of their home, participating in a committee, swimming laps at the pool, at dinner parties, taking in a movie or play, or eating at a restaurant. Besides a cell phone (and not the smart phone kind either), the residents don’t interact with the Internet or social media and I love that. Yes, I like technology, but I like face to face interaction even more.

    Twin Lakes, even though it’s a community for older people, is full of drama. Not only do each of the residents have their own personal drama, but because they are older, the family drama spills over, making everything that much more exciting. The best part about this novel is that both murders revolve around Daniel Korman, and no one knows if someone from Daniel’s dysfunctional family or personal past has an itch for murder.

    3) Let there be more.

    A Murderer Among Us, Marilyn’s first Twin Lakes mystery, was selected as a Best Indie of 2011 by Suspense Magazine (Check out page 49), and I was thrilled to learn that a sequel was in the works. With many of the residents in their golden years, death is either inevitable or sought after by someone who has something to gain. I hope Marilyn turns Twin Lakes into a long mystery series. I want to know what happens next between Lydia and Sol. I want to know if Barbara’s relationship will bloom. How will the residents like the new putting green? I want to know more! Marilyn Levinson’s writing is impeccable, the plot always leaves me guessing, every chapter is full of developing relationships and juicy drama. Murder In The Air is a phenomenal sequel and a must read.

    Marilyn Levinson has written a new page turner. In this sequel

    Marilyn Levinson has written a new page turner. In this sequel to Murder among Us, in what I hope is a continuing series, Levinson has kept her readers engaged and involved in the life of Twin Lakes. She has brought to life interesting insights into life in a retirement community. Moreover, she has maintained a level of suspense that keeps the reader involved in the story to the very last last page.
