Well, I have to give it to Sylvia Selfman for providing me with a delicious, in more ways than one, afternoon of fun with Izzy, Flo and cast. I've been following Ms. Selfman from the beginning and it only gets better. This current story kept me interested from start to finish, and try as I might I yet again guessed wrong on who the killer was. I only have one minor carp; I tend to join Izzy when she has a high calorie chocolate snack and feel I've gained a few pounds by the time I've read the last page. How long do I have to wait, Sylvia for the next installment?Thank you SS for all the fun you've given me.William Michaels
Izzy is a hoot, and her comrades in arms are even more so. I loved the first book and reviewed it at writeonsisters.com in July (http://writeonsisters.com/book-reviews/what-were-reading-mysteries/ ). In this book, Izzy is still in the book writing world as in book #1, but it turns deadly for one writer. Whose motive is the best for killing her? The writer who thinks she was ripped off? Someone whose identity, once revealed, could lead to embarrassment or even jail? Think along with the clues Selfman provides. It's there for the figuring out.
This is a murder mystery that remains relatively light hearted. I'm done with stories filled with damaged, evil people. Izzy is my type of gal. Part Jessica Fletcher part Velma from Scooby Doo with some cheekiness thrown in for good measure. I do wish it was a bit longer though.
Senior Sleuth Izzy solves again! It's a cute change of pace from either a muscle-bound PI, or a 21 yr old supermodel investigator. Izzy is neither, but she is clever! Go, Izzy, because crime never rests! Bye now. Gotta read the next one in the series!!
Izzy and her bridge club are reeling from the deaths in their group. Along with Flo, their love of fashion, chocolate and all the cupcakes in Palm Springs, you will encounter people and how they live. Izzy really believes she is a detective and it cracks you up as well as makes you feel better. We all beleive we are Sherlock Holmes in one way or another.I love the series for the humor and hijinks. The outrageousness is funny and mystery keeps you on edge. Having her be a senior is funny. Sherlock the cat is adorable. A good book to read and you will incorrectly guess who the killer is too, I think unless youre a genius. Enjoy. This is the 3rd book I've read by Selfman and enjoyed it.
I really wanted to give this four stars. The story itself deserves it -- a light, quick, fun read with a quirky leading lady I enjoy reading about. The only downside to the story is that it felt like the resolution came a bit out of left field.The real problem though, and why I had to knock off that fourth star, is the sheer number of typos. I'm not sure if there was a different editor this time around or if the book simply needed another round of revisions before release, but the typos pulled me out of the story repeatedly. It wasn't unusual to have multiple typos on a single page, usually in the form of missing words or sentences that were clearly edited, leaving one of the original words in which no longer belonged. Very distracting. The reason I was so disappointed by this is the fact that I don't remember having that issue with the first book in this series. It wasn't enough to stop me from buying the third though, and I hope it doesn't have the same issue.
I truly enjoyed reading the second Izzy Greene mystery. It was fast pace and fun from beginning to end. I like the characters, but I did miss knowing the whereabouts of one of the characters from the first book. This series makes me look and think of the term "senior citizens" in a different and definitely more fun light! I look forward to reading the next installment. Keep up the good work Ms. Selfman!
I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as the first but liked it anyway and will read the next one in the series. Izzy and Flo are up to their usual tricks and, although there were several laugh out loud moments, not quite as much as the first. Still enjoyable.
