The Regan Reilly books get a little better each time. I don't like the reviews that compare her books to her mother's work, criticizing it as not as suspenseful. Of course it's not as suspenseful! Mary writes suspense novels, Carol writes mysteries. That's like hating the movie Philadelphia because Tom Hanks wasn't as endearing in that as he was in Forrest Gump. Same general genre, different subgenre. This definitely falls in the cozy mystery category. Great for a rainy day or an extra long bus
What a charming story with lots of quirky characters. Even the bad guys were inept, bumbling idiots so this was a mystery without a grusome mudrer to solve.
We have a private detective who is hired by this family of hippies who need to find their daughter so they can all attend to the wedding of a 93 year old millionairess actress who happens to be marrying for the 6th time and who's 5th husband used to be their uncle. If they attend to this wedding, they get 2 million dollars each just for being there because this old lady is kind and giving I guess. The lady of course is marrying a younger guy who only wants her for the money. And our lovely detec...
i love this book so much it has very good storyline and a great ending to the book . i started reading 9:30 and had to keep reading till i finished the book . this by far the best book that she has written so far . i can't wait to read the next book in the series .
This is a fun series, you are never quite sure how the "bad guy" is going to get caught until the end. Knowing who actually makes it very suspenseful because you keep waiting for the how. The sub plots added to the overall mystery as well.
In the 6th installment of Carol Higgins Clark's Regan Reilly PI series, Jinxed, Regan returned in this new cozy mystery to solve another puzzling mystery. This time, we found her in Los Angeles, when Lilac Weldon requested her to find her daughter, Whitney, to attend her aunt's wedding. If she did, she would inherit a boatload of money. But Lilac's soon-to-be-uncle-in-law is a con artist, who would do anything to prevent Whitney from showing up in the wedding. It was now up to Regan to foil the
Regan Reilly is off on a rollicking romp through California wine country trying to track down a missing actress. The crazy cast of characters includes a former movie star from the silent film era, her much (MUCH) younger and suspiciously shady husband-to- be, hippie winery owners, and a motorcycle gang (The Road’s Scholars). Hilarious, sometimes almost slapsticky, antics keep our attention to the exciting end amid wildfires and buried treasure.
Waaaay too many characters for me! I'm not sure what is going on when you have blow by blow details about where people are walking, what they are thinking, what they are eating.... come on. Tell the story we can infer, and we are smart enough to know how some things work without being told it in such great detail!
This was another great book in the Regan Reilly series. I enjoyed this story with Higgins Clark's humor & quirky characters.
I adore the entire Regan Reilly series. They read so quickly. I don't think it's taken me a day to read any of them.
The plot was good but quite a bit like her other books. The writing was kind of simple. But you did want to read to the end to see if the bad guy got what he deserved. It is made to seem like Regan Reilly saves the day, when actually she didn't do that much to reach the conclusion.93-year old former silent screen actress Lucretia Standish is about to be married to decades-younger Edward Fields, who helped Lucretia hit the jackpot in the stock market. This will be her 6th marriage, and Lucretia's...
I have been a fan of the Regan Reilly series for many years after I read several books CHC write with her mom, Mary Higgins Clark. Over the years my mom tried getting me the entire series. I'm missing three.In Jinxed, Regan and her boyfriend had to cut their vacation short as soon as they got to the winery in Napa Valley. The next day Regan gets a call from one of the owners asking her to find her daughter or they will lose millions in inheritance. The case goes from missing daughter, to found d...
. A good mystery. Regan Reilly is a private detective based in Los Angeles. Her new boyfriend (Reilly) is a member of New York’s Major Case police team. They are on a trip to the Calif. wine country and have just stopped at a new winery near San Louis Obispo, when Reilly is called back to NY. Meanwhile, a 93 year old former silent screen star (Lucretia) has just decided to marry her business manager (47 yrs younger – and actually a scam artist). Lucretia decides to give several million dollars s...
Out of all the Carol Higgins Clark books, I think this is the best.Regan and Jack are about to check into a B&B at a California winery when Jack gets called back to NY. Regan had left a business card with the winery owner and the next morning she receives a call from them. Lilac's daughter is on a getaway weekend and out of touch with everyone, but the family has been notified that they will each receive $2 million dollars if they attend the wedding of their late uncle's wife. Now Regan must tra...
This book was fascinatingly complex with a diverse cast of characters and a rich plot! My only complaint was that it wrapped up a little quickly and pulled everything together a little too nicely! Other than that it was a fast paced and interesting novel, something I’ve come to expect from such an amazing author!
The perfect audio book to accompany busy activities like packing, cleaning and a long walk. The listener knows exactly what will happen way before it occurs, so close listening is not necessary. A definite plus is the author’ reading — she absolutely nails the voices of the characters.
Liked it better than her others
funny ,clean loved the main character . One of my favorites that i've read of hers so far
This is the other series book I missed reading in the correct order. THIS one was GREAT! - plot, characters - everything! I couldn't put it down.
JinxedI love the way Carol writes. Keeps you on your toes. Reagan and her family are so real. Can't wait to read the next one!
Quick read, light on the mystery side, lots of short chapters. My first Regan Reilly Mystery.
I got this book from a friend and I was hooked. It’s a charming story with lots of quirky characters and a great ending even the bad guys were fun to read. I enjoyed it.
Love the characters and story.
It may not be as thrilling as Mary Higgins Clark’s books but I enjoyed reading it. The suspense was still there but on the light side but It still keeps you glued until the end.
a lot of fun to read
Lots of characters, entertaining as usual made for a fast one-day read!
Quick read. Couldn’t put it down. Excitement on every page.
A fun, quick read with quirky characters and a bit of suspense.
