It took about 20 pages to get me mildly interested, turned out to be a good read, light mystery. The ending left a bit to be desired. I like epilogue with a good conclusion. 174 pages. GJRA

A bit predictable, but funny. A great summer read with likeable characters.

Nice mystery story! I especially appreciated the lack of violence, cursing, and sexual content (please take note, authors whose works contain these three superabundantly--it IS possible to entertain with a "clean" novel!).

Not bad

This first book in the Belinda and Bennett series is more fun than mystery and I enjoyed reading it. Everything is exaggerated but it is a cozy mystery and let's you escape to an oceanside town to chase bad guys and fall in love...lots of great characters and a fun story.

This book tries hard to be a murder mystery and romance but really falls short on both. The murder is too simplistic, the missing brother and missing boat too easily found by the main character and yet the police had no clue....the characters were supposedly a decade beyond high school yet still acted and talked like teenagers....and why it took 10 years for the "rest of the murder" to be attempted??? Just had so many problems and stupid things - like the family was extremely wealthy yet the kids had to come home to pack up the house for renovations while the parents cruised around Europe - just hire packers and movers like a wealthy person would do.... Overall I was bored and glad when it was over.

I liked this book a lot. It's a good clean who done it, not quite a cozy type, mystery. There's lots of good backstory. The main characters are very likeable. If you like cozy mysteries, you'll like this, its just a bit more serious than cozy.

I agree with Tries but Fails. I really wanted to like this book. It has promise, but many of the characters are annoying and trite. The plot doesn't entirely make sense. I had to force myself to finish, because I really didn't care.

Nether twin is likeable and their bikering does nothing for story. In fact the whole book seems to be a fast chapter an hour muchlike the old so much a word. Is this one of those series writing mills? Pagecounter

I wish i could rate this free, 180 page mystery/ romance 4 1/2 stars. It deserves it. The book is a bit better then average, yet has a few flaws to keep it from a five and very few free books get a five from me, because of editing, too much detailed sex, gore or the absence of a decent conclusion. This is the first book in a series. I enjoyed it very much. There isn't any sex, cursing, religion, and only moderate violence. Even the murder details are rather mild. It can not be classified as suspense or thriller and just barely made murder mystery. It is a pretty tame read.The plot was good, but all the bouncing back and forth from past to present got old fast. I really liked all the characters, except for Lily, as she seemed like a cry baby to me. I wanted to slap some sense into her conceited, selfish, immature head. Whodunit took a while to figure out and since whydunit was dependent on whodunit, in this case, that took even longer. So, all in all, this a fun satisfying read. There were misspelled words. Left out or added punctuation, and sometimes past and present tense were confused. This was a chick book. For ages 16 and up. A nice, clean, read. I have come to believe the word, smirking, is the word du jour, as it seems to be present in almost every book I have read in the last few months. I find it irksome.

To me it was more romance than mystery, but I would read another one by this author

I like the attention to detail in human interactions. Like wondering if he's looking at her bity. She shows instead of tells well, like doesn't say the concussion and meds mak e her loopy, instead we see her babbling. Also the concussion isn't just forgotten and then healed in a couple of hours.

This is the first book in a new series by Amy Saunders called the Belinda and Bennett Mysteries. As with most books that start a series, we are introduced to the characters and get a start on their back story.  We are introduced to Belinda and her older-by-1-minute twin brother Kyle, when Belinda returns to the family home in Portside, Rhode Island to open a cupcake boutique and pack up and supervisor the renovation of the family house while her parents are on a tour of Europe. Later that night, during the after-party of their 10 year class reunion, is where Belinda and Bennett meet for the first time. Bennett Tate is the owner of a private security firm handling the after-party. Bennett is a former police officer, private investigator and has issues with rich women. While at the party and searching for a restroom, Belinda overhears two former classmates, Jeff and Stellan, talking about the sailing death of one of their mutual friends that happened the summer after graduation. But Bennett spies her on camera and comes to move her along. There is a little mutual attraction, but Bennett is wary of socialites and Belinda is concerned about finding out more information about Mark's death. Soon after, Belinda runs into Jeff and he tells her that he needs to talk to her, that there is no one else he can trust. They make arrangements to meet the next day. But that meeting never happens, because Jeff is found dead at the bottom of the cliff later that night.  The officer sent to investigates the death, Jonas Parker, is a former partner of Bennett. Jonas finds out about Belinda's little excursion and eavesdropping, and enjoys Bennett's unwanted interest in Belinda. During the investigation, it is revealed that Kyle had a run in with Jeff and is soon arrested for Jeff's murder. Jonas knows that Belinda may know more than she is saying or even knows that she knows. So Jonas hints to Bennett that he should get closer to Belinda and find out more information about what is going on. Little do they know that Belinda has decided to investigate this herself, because she doesn't believe that Kyle is a murderer. As the story progresses and Belinda starts searching for clues, long held secrets are revealed. This was overall a good book. There were a couple of spots that I was a little confused and it threw me out of the story. Like when Kyle is arrested for the murder of Jeff and taken in, then a couple of scenes later he is out and talking with Belinda. It was never mentioned why he was released. Was he out on bail or what? Then occasionally when the POV would change from Belinda to Bennett, the story line would jump and I would be left playing catch up. That said, I really liked the premise. Belinda may have been a socialite, but her family was close knit and seemed much more down to earth. It was like, they had money, but it didn't define them. I could really connect with Belinda. Also, the plot was fresh and the characters fun. I really liked Victoria and can't wait to see more of her and Dan. The romance between Belinda and Bennett is still very young, but you can really see the potential there. Watching it grow is going to be a joy. Like I said, overall a good book.  I am giving this book 3 stars on Goodreads. The series has great potential and I can't wait to see where it goes.
