    One thought on “Life's a Beach Then You Die

    1. Thibaldo Manrique

      A good light storyStraight forward and simple, but thoroughly enjoyable. A good amateur detective story, the lead character is likable and feels real. Well developed story that would have benefited from a little more editing. A couple of minor editing errors, that in no way take from the story, could have been easily solved.Other than that, a good, enjoyable read. Great for afternoon pool side reading and relaxing.

      Pleasantly surprised by this book, I had downloaded free copy not sure what to expect. The characters were well written, building the mystery. I liked the story and the mystery as it unraveled. I really enjoyed this authors voice in this book.

    3. Nancy Cholewczynski pitts

      Enjoyed every page. Just when I thought I figured out the character something interesting would come out about them. Great read!

    4. Susan Clark

      Eh?!Unfortunately, I had a great deal of trouble getting into the book or caring about the characters or the events. Too much of the book was spent on characters getting dressed or using cigarettes. All i can say is i'm glad i finished it. However, i truly enjoyed the many ways main character's name was mangled by others.

      Good readVery interesting story from beginning to end. Was a little confusing to keep up with all the different characters names. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes a fast moving, good PI story!

      This one is a great read. Entertaining and funny! Can't wait to read the next one in the series. This one is a good read. Entertaining and funny! Can't wait to read the next one in the series called Life's a Beach!

      Cute, punchy with acerbic wit thrown in to make the story wiz on byRetired Investigator from 'up north' turned private PI 'down south' sounds like an old dried up, tried-and-true detective novel. But turn the old PI from a trench coat wearing, cigar smoking wiseacre into a savvy, athletic and sexy 60-something curious husband with a wife for an equal, and you have a great premise for a new type of detective. This reminds me of another older detective from another book I reviewed earlier, however [...]

      First let me say I know this author from an online group. I wanted to give it three and a half stars but rounded up to four.When Max retires to Florida with his wife, he plans to spend his time swimming, sunning, and drinking.Then a lawyer talks him into checking out the computer of a deceased client, looking for hidden financial assets. That was Max's specialty, you see. Doing forensic analyzing of computers. Max agrees. To his regret.Almost as soon as he takes the computer home, bad things sta [...]

      Light, very light, cozy mystery. He broadcast the killer half way through and his depiction of women led me to believe he's never really met one. I think that's why the wife was gone for most of the book. She's apparently middle aged but looks and acts and dresses like she's 20. There was a lot of filler in this book - pages of what was eaten for breakfast or information about a drive somewhere. I kept thinking maybe it was setup to the murder or the catching of the murderer but sadly, it was ju [...]

      For being a free kindle book, I wasn't expecting much from this. However, I actually really enjoyed it. It was light reading, enjoyable, reasonably suspenseful, and overall a good story. I enjoyed the private investigator viewpoint of the story since I haven't really seen that before. The only downfall was the editing. The writing was good, but the punctuation and grammar errors were too abundant. If it wasn't for the editing, I would have given this five stars. Overall it was well worth the rea [...]

      I got this book because I liked the title. I'm really glad I did because I liked the book even more. If you are just looking for a straight forward mystery, this is it. There were no sex scenes and complicated romances. There were no over the top heroes. The main character is just a computer forensic investigator that went private when he retired and doesn't even carry a gun.At the end of the book, one or two events in the story were not explained as to why they occurred, but it did not take awa [...]

      Although this book was semi-entertaining the typos and over explanation of things drove me crazy. I understand that detail sets a scene for your mind but it is possible to overdo it. In stead of simply saying that the character prepared breakfast for himself, it was sometimes along the lines of 'he poured cereal into a bowl, added milk, poured OJ into a glass and coffee into a cup'. Otherwise the book was ok. The plot flowed and made sense.

    13. LLona Cunningham

      A little overdone in some of the details that didn't feel necessary to keep the story going, but I have enough background in computers and cleaning up other people's bookkeeping problems to actually relate to the protagonist. Not sure a 'normal' reader would find it so interesting, even for less than 200 pages. Fortunately I was listening via text-to-speech, so I didn't even notice most of what others found as typos and formatting errors. It needs some work, but it is fixable.

    14. Stitchywoman

      A predictable, light-weight cozy mystery. I found this to be a quick read with no real surprises but pleasant none the less. The story moved and the characters did not act stupidly. This is not a book for someone looking for a "can't put down" hard core mystery but if you are in the mood for a cozy mystery, this one will be entertaining.

    15. Flsunluvr

      Liked the book because I could relate to the area and was easy to visualize where the story takes place. A few parts dragged and I found myself skimming every now and again but in general, this was an easy to read, easy to follow story. Would read something else by this author if the opportunity presented itself.

    16. Kathryn Moore

      It started out very promising. I was hooked right away. But then it just slowed down and I started to lose interest. Then it got better and ended. A retired guy in Florida that likes to sleep in til 10:00 am. Nothing wrong with that.Has a PI license, but hesitates to use it as a case develops. Of course he does or we wouldn't have a story.

    17. Linda

      I didn't expect much from a Kindle freebie, but Jones can write. Good plot surrounding a married detective who's overall happy in life, and hits the bottle moderately. No horrible scenes to avoid, no awful dark alleyway scenes of grime and decay - just a good mystery. Happy to read it again, and I think that Jones should confidently charge more for her work.

    18. Matu Nila

      Liked this. The dialogue was nice but at times the actual story was just listing things one after another with too much detail (I don't need to know the actual route from one place to another while reading a book), but when it was time for some dialogue, the whole book changed. Quite basic crime book, but ok all the same.

    19. Chelsea

      It was alright. I found myself having trouble getting into it, connecting with the characters and also finding them likable. Although I felt myself struggling to finish, I didOf course I had to find out "whodunit". I wouldn't be opposed to trying out another book by Falafel Jones, as this was still a quick and 'fun', easy type of read.

    20. ronnie

      very good!!!Good whodunit novel. Great character development. Wasn't sure who the culprit was until the last chapter. I enjoy books like that and can't wait to read the next novel.

    21. Suzanne Walker

      Volusia County FloridaI used to like in the area and could imagine this really going on thereAlso the more I read the more I couldn't put it down. I stayed up all night just to see what would finally happen.

    22. Sunny Kondova

      Pretty good for being free!!!pretty good and easy read. I really did enjoy it and found it interesting enough that I am planing on buying the next one. can't believe this one was free!!!

    23. Candice Ellis

      The story line was well written. There were a few. funny moments in the book and the characters were down to earth realistic people. At times there were a few moments were the story seemed to ramble on but I guess that is the part of the character's personality. Overall I enjoyed reading the book.

    24. Patricia C Robbins

      Stay on your ToesA good procedural work. Even Mariel was included in the final reveal. God strong characters with flaws as well as admirable traits. Classic mystery at its best.

    25. Drew

      The author uses the Florida Keys as a wonderful backdrop to this wacky who done it tale. The characters are fun and engaging, and the story is written in a way to keep you guessing who the killer is while the plot thickens. Well written and witty I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

    26. pink lapis

      it's a story about a detective who recently retired and was enjoying beach days with his wife. he was offered a job he cannot decline, and the rest is worth reading. interesting enough for passing time but still lacks something to move me and make me give it 5 stars.

    27. Sherry

      It was a really good read, but they need a better proofreader. Many words were left out which was annoying. Or maybe it was just my copy. I liked the story, though. Kept thinking I knew who did it, but never did.
