    You Can't Put it Down!

    Grace Marsden is a character that really comes to life and her experiences keep you turning the pages- this is a great book to take on vacation! I enjoy reading Nelson DeMille and David Baldacci, and even though the mysteries aren't the same in their settings, the suspense of Luisa Beuhler's books keep me reading her stories, too!

    Great cozy mystery

    The best way to describe Grace Marsden is that she's a female version of the character Monk. Her step-son's scout troop finds a spooky crate marked 'Property of the U. S. Army' in the woods. It contains the bones of a dead cat and a few other trinkets. There are Satanic worshipers in the woods, so everyone believes it belongs to them. Grace takes her nephews to the woods and is attacked. Then a body is found in a hole. Harry, Grace's husband and ex-spy, finds his hands full trying to take care of her. Grace begins to investigate and isn't sure she likes what she finds. Can she figure out the mystery without putting herself or those she loves in further danger? This was the first book I've read by this author. It definitely won't be the last. She weaves a wonderful tale of intrigue and suspense while still keeping it on the cozy side. Grace is an interesting character. She has quite a few quirks, but that really adds to the story. I found the story to be well-plotted and hard to put down. I thought the author did a great job of creating a lot of suspense, especially in the dark woods, without making it scary or gruesome. I highly recommend this book.

    An exciting fast paced thriller

    Grace Marsden¿s life begins to spin out of control the day two scouts found a crate in the Robinson Woods containing the bones of a cat and items belonging to it. The FBI becomes involved because the crate stored ammunitions stolen during World War II and an FBI agent was killed while investigating. Taking two Scouts into woods on a lark they hear chanting and Grace can¿t find her keys so they are stranded.------------------- A friend picks the boys up and promises to return for Grace but before he can, robed monk-like figures try to abduct her from the car but she escapes until her ride picks her up. She later learns that in the last two years five women were raped and scalped in the area. They believe besides the scouts in the woods, there are a Wiccan coven and a satanic cult. Attacks on Grace¿s life begin and though there are many suspect including a scoutmaster, police and FBI operatives, nobody is sure who the culprits really are. When Grace asks the FBI agents to use her as bait to stake out the villains so her nightmare can end, they create a sting that goes badly. The agent is kidnapped and Grace is almost killed trying to rescue her. Unless the perpetrator is found soon, Grace will become another statistic.-------------- This is an exciting fast paced thriller that readers will thoroughly enjoy. Although readers will find it hard to see how all the subplots tie into the main storyline, the audience will root for the heroine to survive the many attempts on her life and hope she gets to kick butt. She is a warm and caring character who is a true heroine because she perseveres in spite of her fears.----------------- Harriet Klausner
