ONE DEADLY SISTER the first novel in this popular women sleuths mystery romance series featuring the irrepressible Sandy Reid. She doesn't carry a gun, but then neither does a pit bull. ~ When an almost-too-clever young law student in Philadelphia gets a life-or-death call from her estranged brother who just moved to Florida–she tells him to go to hell. She doesn't need this. She's holding an old grudge and resents having her life interrupted.

The brother doesn't come looking for trouble, he simply wants to get past his Philadelphia divorce and start a new life in Florida, but woman-trouble comes looking for him. Unfortunately, he arrives in the small Florida ocean side town just as someone murders the local gubernatorial candidate. The brother doesn't have a clue about women and gets seduced and framed. He hasn't bothered with his estranged sister up north for years, but now as a stranger in a hostile town she's his only hope.
She reluctantly decides to at least check out her brother's predicament in Florida. This small step leads the sister into an ever-increasing entanglement of deceit, double-cross, and danger, and she must somehow persuade the attractive investigating detective to play things her way.

"I like mysteries…. I like romance!"

"Help me figure out what to read next."The novels in the Sandy Reid Mystery Romance series are fast-paced mysteries with a span of troubled romance; written in a compelling soft-boiled style you'll find enjoyable if you're tired of the usual formula mysteries. Neither Chick Lit nor Cozy, soft-boiled means it's gritty,on the edge and at times risqué, and you can count on some murders being in there–but you don't have to read about the gruesome details. The plots are not purposely made complicated, and if you don't figure out every detail in advance, at least you understand it in the end. It will get suspenseful along the way, but eventually the female protagonist will get all the puzzle pieces put together, will restore order and we'll all be safe once again. Sandy Reid, doesn't carry a gun, but nevertheless isn't intimated by bad guys. Bullets don't bounce off her, but threats, assaults and insults invariably produce a toxic response. Why should men have all the fun?

Ummm. Interesting. I saw the three, two and one star reviews and I wonder exactly what these people were expecting. All books are not written with the skill of a Time to Kill or Pride and Prejudice, but they are good nonetheless. Although I agree there is a drop in quality with the explosion of a lot of the mindless series, I thought One Deadly Sister by Rod Hoisington had everything one could ask for in his unique character, Sandy Reid.

always "yea that was a good book. " he just likes to read

Wow. Pretty cool. At first Sandy Reid (the law student come to save her innocent brother of murder charges) comes off as unlikable with her “so- in- control, tough as nails” attitude, and the book is off-putting. It was nice that Hoisington reveals her vulnerability later and keeps the characters believable, while still giving Sandy that unattainable woman protagonist feel.

My favorite is Sandy

I was impressed by Hoisington’s ability to take a clichéd small town murder mystery—his first—and breath life and intrigue into it. I had downloaded the book by mistake (it was free) and planned on deleting it. After reading several chapters, I was hooked. The author develops his characters well. My favorite is Sandy, the sister. She manifests class, street-smarts, tenacity and spunk. She endears the reader to the small-town’s southern character and even to its shallow thinking and corrupt law enforcement officials. Although not a lawyer, at least not yet, Sandy demonstrates her talent to gather up all the loose pieces of a murder, line them in their proper order and hand them to a grateful defense attorney. The brother, Ray, is a weak character with little backbone who must depend on his younger sister to bail him out of trouble even though they haven’t spoken in years. Deadly Sister is a quick and fun read. I intend to take a chance on Hoisington’s future writings. I give this enjoyable murder mystery a 4-star rating.

I hope this story isn’t accurate for Florida. There’s 70 yr old women in bikinis and dirty cops and Cuban mafia. Ray is just a dull divorcee who gets caught in the schemes of crazy rich women. He lands in jail accused of killing a very important man. Luckily for him his estranged little sister is willing to help him. Sandy is one feisty woman. She wants to hate her brother but he’s all the family she has and can’t let him go to prison when he’s innocent. I’m reallu interest in what happens with the cop, Chip.

The heroine is well developed with believable conflicts and aspirations. You root for her from the beginning to the conclusion of her involvement. She knows she should choose duty but the reader wonders which duty will win in the end.

Fantastic mystery

This book is an excellent an intriguing read. I gave a 5 star rating because of the ease of reading and the amazing flow of the plot. Just when you think you have the murderer figure out, a colorfully well thought out plot twist grabs you and you sink deeper into the novel. I really enjoyed this book as I read it in 2 days! I also like the fact that Mr. Huntington spares the readers the gruesome murder details but creates a compelling and gripping edge of your seat novel. I would pay to see the movie version of this book. One deadly sister is definitely one of my favorites and I can’t wait to read more from Mr. Huntington!
