Toujours un mort de plus, toujours plus d'intrigue: le lecteur croit constamment deviner les ressorts de l'histoire mais... Les personnages sont bien campés, humains, et il y a toujours un chien ou deux pour rendre l'atmosphère plus familiale.
Bonne observation des personnages humains et canins!
Un livre vite lu, juste pour oublier les ennuis quotidiens en regardant les ennuis des autres dans le roman policier!

an interesting new sereis 14 février 2012
Par mcdabble - Publié sur Amazon.com

Having read Ms. Carr's Mac Faraday series and enjoying the flow of her words, I bought this book. It was hard to put down even though at times I got thoroughly confused by the large cast of characters. In summary, Joshua Thornton, a recently widowed ex-Navy JAG commander moves back to his hometown to raise his five children and open a law practice. In the course of moving in he comes across possible evidence from a murder committed 30+ years ago. Pursuing answers to that murder leads him to more murder, drug dealers, and corruption in the local government and police force. It got confusing in places because so many events from the past tied into events of the present. As I said before, there is a large cast of characters past and present. This amazon page listed 39 in their Shelfari community. The ending reminded me of classic Poirot, with Joshua explaining all of the murders away to the assembled suspects.
As for the Kindle formating, my only issue was the hyphenating of words in the middle of sentences. It was jarring to the flow of reading because it was unexpected. Overall I enjoyed the book and have downloaded the second in the series, A Reunion to Die For.

Worst book I ever read 29 septembre 2008
Par Fran Ishman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I was influenced by other readers' reviews and want to give future potential readers a moment's pause with the only (so far) negative review. I would be considered an avid reader and can almost always find at least something I like in a book. But not this one. The one word which would cover everything from plot to characters to writing style in this book would be the word SILLY. Way too many murders -- it got to be boring. The plot unfolded in a contrived, ridiculous manner. It's as if the author took every plot she ever heard of and put them in this one book. And then tried desperately and unsuccessfully to connect all of them. Many of the characters were painfully annoying and unbelievable when they were meant to be just the opposite. It seemed as if the author thought she would be considered a good writer if she could include as many different physical characteristics in this one book as she could conjure up. This book is the literary equivalent of a HORRIBLE television soap opera. I sincerely do not mean to be unkind to the author, but rather to warn fellow readers that not everyone thinks this book deserves 5 stars by any means.

Cozy Mystery 29 avril 2012

When Joshua Thornton, a recent widower and former Jag Commander returns to his hometown with his five children all hell breaks loose. When Josh finds a twenty year old letter addressed to his deceased mother in the attic, he sets into motion a chain of events that put him,his cousin and inquisitive children in danger. We have murders, crazy women, bad cops, drugs and a crazy drug lord preacher. This is a mystery worth reading, it is a fast read because you can't put it down. I definitely want to read Book 2 in the Joshua Thornton series.

Thanks to CreateSpace and Net Galley.

Wow! Great Mystery Lovers Choice! 18 juillet 2013

I have previously shared info on Carr's Mac Farraday Mysteries which I loved, so I was surprised somewhat to go backwards to her Debut novel and find that her other series with Joshua Thornton is even better! Or, should I say different... Mac Farraday is funner...yeah, I know that's not a word, but it's what I want to say...

This novel is one of the best mystery novels I've ever read--and that's a lot of 'em! The concept is brilliant, because you don't really know what is happening until you're well into the book. Joshua Thornton comes across like both your favorite private investigator as well as the superb lawyer that he actually is--Perry Mason and Paul Drake merged into one??? Get the picture? Because I want you to realize that if you are a reader that tries to solve the case as the evidence is presented, I can guarantee you that you will NOT have a chance! Yes, that's a challenge to all of you who believe you are good at solving mysteries...

Even when Carr gave us the most obvious clue--well I didn't even realize it... I kept popping around from one to another until, I sat, like the others in the room, as Joshua Thornton placed each piece of evidence together for his audience and all the pieces were tied together. Wow, ingenious story! Now, we don't get to know the characters as well in a mystery like this... This is NOT a cozy. It is pure puzzle presentation and solution and the characters exist to present facts. On the other hand, each of the characters had a specific reason for their lives in the book and I thought they were played well. Even as I got to some fairly close guesses, I never got close...so, what that means is that it is hard to provide too much information about this book less I give away relevant clues!

I might mention that this particular series has greatly evolved from this first book, perhaps responding to comments from readers. My guess is that the characters will be further developed, which will cause readers to become more involved... Still, for an intricately woven mystery, it would be hard to beat this one.

Joshua has just brought his family--five kids and a huge dog-- back to his home town. He's a recent widower and is still having trouble adjusting to being alone and a single parent, especially when they get into their new home and realize there's much to be done to adequately meet their needs...like at least two more bathrooms!

Quick to give his cousin, the town doctor, a mild reprimand about not telling him how bad a condition the house was in, Tad MacMillan chuckled as he told him that he didn't say anything because he wanted all that was left of the former doctor's records and the way to get them was to buy "as is..."

Tad is an interesting character diversion since he has a bad background of drinking and drugs and...women...He is now clean and has been accepted by the town as a responsible member of the community as well as doctor, but this novel actually begins with a body that was found, then lost, about 35 years ago, soon after Joshua's parents had been killed in an accident. Because of that, an old letter was discovered about the missing body...

Of course, the kids were gung-ho to try to solve this "cold case!" Actually, Joshua was too... He had retired from JAG to be able to spend more time with his family, but he was already finding it hard not to be involved with his routine work...

But the first incident that piqued Joshua's instincts was when a young woman walked into church, took aim at Tad and then tried to kill Joshua when he jumped her. The fact that Tad was being stalked and getting emails from Vicki, who turned out to be the granddaughter of a minister of another church, was icing on the cake! The minister in question was suspected of being a drug lord in the area--along with a number of other questionable actions. But nothing was ever proven. This had been going on since Joshua had once lived in town and he still remembered going to school with the man's son, who was now the town's prosecuting attorney.

But then Vicki was killed... And in the same room, they also found a woman with whom Joshua had once been involved... No matter what, Joshua was going to be involved! Finally, he was appointed as a special prosecutor for these murders...

Everybody was suspected! And Josh's kids had made new friends and they talked about the old body that had never been found...Yep! those kids went on their own...and yes, they did find it--but were almost put in jail! LOL

What they found on that body really set the investigation into gear...

Lots more happens in the book and I was following every word as I finished the novel, happy to have every answer I needed provided by the author. In fact, I loved how it was ended--that is, for that "small" case that only a puzzle lover could solve. Joshua Thornton is a formidable opponent of any criminal. After this one, I'm not sure future cases will even come near--but I hope I get the chance to find out...Some great books from Lauren Carr since this one! Soooo many books; sooooo little time, folks! Mystery Lovers Alert for this one!

Twists & turns murder mystery 8 novembre 2012
Par rhonda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I enjoyed reading a Small Case of Murder. It was full of murders and sucides over a long period of time. I wondered if I would like it as well as Lauren's later books.
Yes I liked her later books best but while saying that I did like this book.
I had a hard time putting this book down once I started it.
Thier are a lot of characters in this story. I especially liked meeting Joshua Thornton and his family.
Joshua moved his family after his wife's death back to his hometown of Chester, West Virginia. Joshua left JAG because he now was a single parent to his 5 children. He plans to open up his own law practice. Joshua bought a old building that the town doctor owned and it came with a lot of books and patients files.
His cousin Tad was the town doctor now and was interested in the records and asked for them.
During the move Joshua found a letter written from his parents friend Lulu that had died on the same day as his parents had. The letter was never opened till now.
It talked about the dead body the four of them found on thier prom night that disappeared before they could get back with the Sheriff to show him. The sheriff did not believe them.
Joshua and his family were interested that his parents found a dead body and did not know who it was. Lulu's letter mentioned that she saw the dead guy in a picture of
Reverend Rawling,Sheriff DeLaney and some other guys in army uniforms. She asked Reverend about the picture.
Lulu died of a drug overdose the same day she mailed the letter also the same day Joshua lost his parents.
Thier are a lot of murders that happened in the past and again now that have not been solved. Everyone knows who the leader of drugs in the area but no proof. Joshua quiet life that he moved back for doesn't last for long even in church.
I like all the plot twists and turns that kept me from putting the book down till i finshed reading it.
I was given this ebook to read from Lauren and in exchange to write a honest review of it.
