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.
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 .

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...
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...
. 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...

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!
This story was full of great characters!
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.

I would definitely class this book in the cozy mystery category. It is a light and fun read. Reagan Reilly, Daughter of Nora Reagan Reilly of Mary Higgins Clark fame is a P I from Los Angeles. She and her boyfriend stop at a winery in the Santa Barbara area while on vacation, where Reagan gets hired to find a relative that has gone AWOL for the weekend.

This was my first book on CD - since I now commute 30-minutes each way to work. I was getting bored with radio and wanted to give audio books a try. On purpose I chose a light 'fluffy' read. I've read some of Carol Higgins Clark's books before - and knew what to expect - 'formula' type of writing with predictable plots. The author did the reading - and I felt she tried too hard to do different voices for each character. I also wanted the reading to be a little quicker in speed. All in all, this
