    1. Lissa

      Mmm, I give this book three stars with reservations.The story is set in Pueblo, Colorado - oh, err, I mean Tesoro ;) - and that, above all else, was what I enjoyed about this book. I lived in the high desert of Colorado (although on the other side of the divide) for four and a half years, and reading this book made me miss it terribly. There's a lot of "place" here in the book - those gorgeous night skies, the low humidity, even the chili festival - and that is what I liked above all else.Abbott [...]

      I liked the main characters, Deputy County Attorney Jean McAllister and Sherriff Lea Hawkins’s, both strong independent and well established women. I particularly enjoyed meeting the Hawkins family, whose warmth and welcome were charming. For once the wicked homophobic family members (Jeans’ mother and brother) get their due comeuppance.The mystery is not hard to solve, but adds layer of storyline which intertwines neatly with the gentle romance and family relationships. We certainly know wh [...]

      Good bookI really liked this story. Very good character development. Was hooked with plot from the start till the finish. A well done story.

      The new book by the author of the superb Alex and CJ series! I was really anticipating this (the only thing that would make me more excited would be a fourth Alex and CJ book since I absolutely adore them! *fingers tightly crossed* :D), and it was a good and enjoyable read from start to end. I felt it was slightly different from her other books (this leans more towards One Fine Day than Fragmentary Blue) in two areas, in that the focus here is more on the mystery rather than the romance, and we [...]

      Other than some zombie short story I have no idea how to find, I've apparently just completed the last thing currently published by Abbott. That was a quickish leap through her work. I seem to be on something of a run here. At least in terms of 'completing' authors who I had just started. I recall two of the top of my head, at least. Well, three now with Abbott. J.A. Armstrong, and Lynn Galli being the other two I started and completed relatively quickly. Well, there is that one short story coll [...]

      This book was really down the middle for me, not great, not bad either. While, I enjoyed reading it, there is nothing about this book that would stick out in my mind. I know I will forget about it shortly. The characters where both pretty plain for me, nothing to make them stand out. When I think about Abbott's other books, her characters of Alex and CJ, where great. In fact I would put CJ in my top 10 favorite characters in Lesfic. Therefore, I'm just so surprised I was so disconnected to the t [...]
