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?

A very creative and enjoyable first novel, Rod Hoisington has created a complicated whodunit with red herrings to spare. At the basic root we have the remaining two members of a family, a brother and sister, who have had no real contact since the day their parents died several years ago. In fact, sister Sandy is living her well-ordered life quite satisfactorily, thank you, doing legwork for a highly respected law office. A late night call brings her brother Raymond back into her life like a slap in the face, she has all but disowned him and the call is like a blast of ice. He is calling from a Florida jail in a small town, with a murder rap hanging over his head. Sandy is determined that in no way is she going to help him, she is still too angry about his lack of support for her when she needed it.

I found this a very enjoyable entree for me into using my Kindle, but in all fairness the book has weaknesses. The strength, tenacity and intelligence of the eponymous heroine are left as unexplained (or weakly guilded over) as the weakness and dunderheadedness of her “innocent” brother. There are also sections (relatively rare) were dialogue is over-used to fill in backstory or where an incident earlier was regurgitated again in the narrative as strong as one would find more appropriate for 3 chapters back, not 3 pages back, as was the case.

What a surprise endimg!

Murder invades a small coastal town when the novel’s protagonist, Ray Reid, has his life thrown in chaos. The tranquility is shattered as Ray Reid confirms the harsh reality that he does not understand women. It is this lack of understanding women then propels him to have sex with the local femme fatal, a seventy-year woman who wears a thong. This sexual encounter ensures that his recovery from divorce will not be smooth. If this story line does not get your full attention, then you need to check your pulse.
