Overview

What do a nearsighted massage therapist, a rookie detective called "Fish," a weekly poker game, and an endangered cougar have in common? Murder, it turns out!

Myopic Abby Ford is the only "eyewitness" to the murder of a local environmentalist. She can't identify the killer, but he can identify her - forcing her to stay one step ahead of his hired goons. When the lead detective also becomes her bodyguard after an attempt on her life, their growing attraction only complicates matters. But what neither suspects is that the killer has an inside edge very close to home...

Set in a suburb of Baltimore, Bluff introduces a cast of quirky and endearing characters that will have you looking forward to the rest of this "crime lite" series.

I thoroughly enjoyed Bluff! I think it would appeal to anyone who enjoys reading all the popular mystery series authors - Janet Evanovich, Sue Grafton - even Mary Higgins Clark. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book - in fact, when I saw that there were two more books, I rushed to find them for my Nook - unfortunately, I was disappointed to learn that they haven't been published yet! Oh well, I'll look forward to reading them as soon as they come out!

A delightful cozy mystery (or "crime lite," as the author calls it) by a new writer. Premise: an environmental professor is murdered in broad daylight in a nice neighborhood in Maryland, and the only witness is nearsighted and can't identify the killer. The book is narrated with an omniscient point of view, allowing the reader to get into the minds of all the characters. There are a bunch of quirky, yet well-drawn characters and a running poker game throughout the novel where a lot of the crime solving happens. The author's style reminded me of a toned-down version of Janet Evanovich, and the eco-themed plot is something reminiscent of Carl Hiaasen - another favorite of mine - but not as over the top. This is apparently the first book in a series, and I'm looking forward to the others. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
