I don't understand some of the bad reviews.....not all mysteries have to be cloak and dagger. They just have to keep the reader entertained and I did enjoy this book....sure there were quite a few sad stories, but that's in life as well. Deborah has become a favorite author just from having read two of her books. I think I enjoyed this one more then the first and it's because even though the stories were somewhat depressing I got to feel a depth of feeling for characters that wasn't there in the first book. I am a HUGE of Elizabeth George and wanted to find a similar writer and I think I've done that with Crombie. I'm looking forward to reading all her Kincaid/James novels.

Jasmine Dent has terminal lung cancer, so her neighbor Duncan Kincaid is not surprised to find her dead body in her apartment one morning. But several small details make Duncan uneasy, and as a Scotland Yard Superintendent he¿s in the position to do something about it. With the help of Sergeant Gemma James, he launches an investigation to find out whether Jasmine¿s death was suicide or something more sinister. Suspects are plentiful: a shy friend Meg who helped Jasmine prepare suicide plans, Meg¿s shiftless boyfriend Roger, Felicity the home-care nurse, Jasmine¿s unsuccessful brother Theo, her reticent downstairs neighbor Major Keith, and of course Jasmine herself. Duncan and Gemma methodically dig into the questions of motive and opportunity. As the investigation progresses, Duncan reads through Jasmine¿s journals in hopes of gaining insight from her past. It was nice to watch Duncan and Gemma move from a strictly profession relationship to something more personal. However, I found it slightly bleak that not a single character in the book was in a solid relationship. I did like getting to know the victim through her journal entries. The plot is sound and the uncertainty about whether or not a murder was actually committed made for an interesting twist. Altogether, All Shall Be Well is an quietly entertaining procedural and a quick read.

This second book in Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James series is closer to Duncan's home. A great murder mystery. I really enjoyed it and I love this series.

This author does not fill her book with a lot of non-essential words, places or things. She uses the English language well. Short stories or full length, the plot moves along and space is not wasted on things like one or two page descriptions of a room or a building that have little or nothing to do with the plot. I have read two of her books and am almost finished with a third. Highly recommended reading.

I'm sorry to say that this book is really depressing and boring. I personally read mysteries for amusement not to get all teary about sad stuff. Almost every character in this book has some terrible events in their past. When I read the book cover¿s short description about a cancer patient dying I was already quite hesitant. But I naturally assumed that the author would not emphasize the terrible details of cancer and focus instead on a good mystery. Boy, was I wrong!!! There is absolutely no suspense whatsoever. Not that you know immediately what happened but you simply don¿t care that much since it is a relief for the main character to die anyway. Add to that a mixture of slightly sad and down-right tear jerking stories of the other characters and you¿ve got one depressing book. I¿m not even sure I want to finish it¿
