Santa Fe Mojo (Vincent Malone Book 1) “Good fun Read” March 14, 2019 “Good character development, good read, interesting plot.” Blue Flower Red Thorns (Vincent Malone Book 2) “A good read” March 13, 2019 “I actually stumbled across this series because I read book 1 in a series by this same author and thought this was in that same series. I'm not sad that I got the first book because it started me on a whole different series by a new author that am liking more and more. I like the characters and character development, the plot line, pacing, and descriptions of places and buildings that lend so much color to the books. Highly recommend this author and will read anything he writes at this point.” “Love these mysteries” February 27, 2019 “It is such a well written mystery that I had to finish the book in one sitting. The interaction of the characters is so believable that I can picture myself there with them. Santa Fe is a great setting for this Bed & Breakfast with the square and all the activities going on there as each day progresses. I enjoy the mysteries that take some thinking to finally see what is happening. Will continue to read these mysteries.” “Not your run-of-the-mill mystery” January 27, 2019 “Blue Flower Red Thorns is one of those books you don’t want to quit reading. It’s perfect for reading on the beach or for when you are housebound due to a snowstorm. The plot is uniquely different from most mysteries and includes a variety of settings and characters. The author incorporates the entertainment industry, long haul trucking, the art world and the cozy setting of a New England B & B in a perfectly logical, yet suspenseful, manner.”
