    4. I've read and enjoyed several later volumes in the Maggie McGowan, and was pleased when I found this first in the series. Maggie's sister was part of antiwar movement 20 some years earlier. One member who has been on the run since then, contacts Maggie about turning herself in to the authorities. That's when things start moving and Maggie's sister is shot. The characters are believable and interesting and sometimes quirky. The plot moves quickly and I found myself stealing every odd moment to ke [...]


    5. I read a lot of women detective stories. This one i recently re-read. I liked it for the action and the Mike Flint love interest to be honest. I am not going to be very eloquent in explaining why i liked it I can tell. Something for me to ponder to make this review at all useful to even myself. smile. I did find the Maggie character's 1980s women culture behaviour a bit funny. I think i will give this one 3.75


    6. Brought back memories of college although I didn't know anyone famous on a national level. I liked Maggie--single mother struggling with her daughter and her former husband and his new pregnant wife, her career, and her siblings' mortality--and how memories and their significance can change through the years.


    7. I really enjoyed this book. There were a few too many names and not enough detail for me to keep track but it didn't really make me lose any of the story. I enjoyed the slight humor as well. I will be looking for her other books to read. I would have liked to give 3.5.


    8. My rating has nothing to do with the writing Wendy Hornsby can write. I had issue with subject matter & characters. I couldn't connect & care about the characters. I couldn't care about characters who were lacking morals & values. The subject matter of the plot did not interest me.


    9. This was a good enough book. It dragged in places and the ending was not really clear and what was clear was predictable. Not certain if I care to read anymore books in this series.
