Title: Candy Apple Red

Author: Nancy Bush

Publisher: Kensington

Copyright: 2005

ISBN: 978-0-7582-0906-1

Series or stand-alone: #1

Setting: Lake Chinook, OR

1st Sentence:

If I'd known they were about to find a body at the bottom of Lake Chinook, I never would have gotten myself into the whole mess.


This book was just okay for me. I think part of my problem was that it was blurbed by Lisa Jackson, saying "Move over Stephanie Plum, Jane Kelly has arrived!" and I expected more, because I love Janet Evanovich - and it wasn't as funny as a Plum book. Well, that and when I finished it to the back cover and found out that Lisa Jackson is her sister, well, I was a little perturbed by that. It was an okay mystery with some likeable characters and a dog that was my favorite part of the book. Maybe it was too cozy for me. I don't know. I do know that I don't know if I liked it well enough to read #2 and more.
Any thoughts?
