    I was disappointed to read the first book of this multi-volume set. I won't be reading any more by this author. I expected a murder mystery but what I read was much more like a romance or soap-opera story with a mystery side story. This book appears to be written by a woman with other women as the main target audience. Not being a woman, I found the frequent use of emotions, feelings, and bodily urges to be overdone and unrealistic.

This book appears to be written by a woman with other women as the main target audience. Not being a woman, I found the frequent use of emotions, feelings, and bodily urges to be overdone and unrealistic. Here's a direct quote to illustrate: "He stirred something in her she hadn't felt in a long time and her body was on fire. Standing under the moonlight reflecting on the bay, she resolved to do whatever she could to prove the man innocent. If she couldn't set him free and make him her husband, she was certain she would be consumed by the fires that raged within her." This is over the top, and just plain too much for me! The mystery part of the story was fine - it was interesting and well-told, even if a predictable and often-used story and format. I might have given the story about 3.5 stars, except for the sappy romance, as referenced previously. I have almost 700 books in my "To Read" list, and this one had the HIGHEST rating (by other Goodreads members) of all of them. Normally, I have a lot of faith in Goodreads ratings, but in this case, I think many of these other reviewers have gone badly wrong!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. So bad in so many ways I am not sure where to begin. I will admit that in several places I simply couldn’t stand to slog through it so I just skimmed over it as quickly as I could. The characters are ridiculous, the plots are outrageous and the writing is...well I don’t even have a word to describe the writing. But I am sure the author could come up with several unnecessary adjectives to use in each and every sentence to describe the writing.

I appreciate the scene being set, but knowing that the waiter has his dark hair parted and slicked back and that the menus are tall, adds nothing to the scene, the plot, or my enjoyment of the story, and it is like that with every sentence. It is like reading a report that was written for school and X number of words were required. I also got quite tired of the references to the dead husband that was (SPOILER ALERT) not dead, so he came back, then he died (probably). Like I said, ridiculous and outrageous. I kept going hoping that it would improve, but it never did. I will not be reading any more by this author.

    Loved this series wish there was more Emily Parker was engaged to Colin and supposed to get married when someone in her life, supposedly read keeps showing up was he a ghost? Murder of the minister that was supposed to marry them set off a chain of events. He was not who he said he was and her sisters husband is fun off the road.. So many mysteries keep you planted in this series and I was wondering which decision Emily would make. She made the one I was hoping for. Read this from book one.

It is a different mystery for each book but to know the characters and the whole story it is better to read in succesion.

    Very enjoyable I really enjoyed the book. I felt like the writer new people hated stupid stuff. The stories flowed and I didn’t have the feeling like oh here it goes again another problem. Thank you. They were great stories that I felt they could have been real without too much drama just enough to keep the story interesting.

    Wonderful wonderful. I'm not easy to entertain, but D B did just that. Currently it is over a hundred degrees outside and I'm sitting in a fat chair in cool air. I looked through my kindle for a Mystery to justify my being lazy and air conditioned. Man I found a good one. Been here all afternoon. Great read.. Wonderful wonderful.

Also it has to have characters you fall in love with. This series has it all and I don't want it to end. You won't want it to either. Please write more books like these!!!!

    Wonderful! What fun reads! These three books were full of mystery and light romance. The plots were well crafted and the characters were well-developed. I am looking forward to my next Debra Burroughs read. These books kept me up until the wee hours of the night.

    Paradise Valley Mysteries, Box Set #1. The cast of characters are great. Each mystery is unique, interesting and the 3rd book was the best with it's twist. Good books for a rainy day.

    This set of mysteries, with a detective and his fiancé, a private investigator was not easy to put down. The couple kept running into occurrences that kept them from getting married; including her former husband who was thought to be dead. They had lots of friends who helped them out.

    There was a name of one of the characters that changed from one book to the next. Ernie's wife's name was Marlene in one book and Martha in the next book. Other than that the books are exciting to read and the characterization is well developed. There was a name of one of the characters that changed from one book to the next.

    I found parts of the book quiet good and the character development was good. The overall plot was improbable and there was far too much male aggrandizement and purposeless romanticism. I actually got disgusted around the 90% point and dumped the book.

    Interesting but very light weight writing. Editing needs to be improved. I don't think the author or editors know what a semi-colon is. Interesting but very light weight writing. Editing needs to be improved. I don't think the author or editors know what a semi-colon is.

Issues of trust were woven throughout. Fast pacing in the investigative sections kept interest up, while the romantic sections were a bit repetitive, and tended to slow down the story line. I have one small issue with language usage. I know that high school English teachers have long dreaded teaching correct usage of the verbs lie and lay, because of their dominant sexual connotations, especially to young teens experiencing raging hormones. I acknowledge also that Bob Dylan has now been canonized with his Nobel Prize for Literature, so we ought to assume that he knew better when he wrote his 1969 single "Lay, Lady Lay" and that he chose to ignore the conventions, using poetic license. HOWEVER, the verb "to lie" SHOULD be used as an action a person does, oneself, or someone else may say "Go lie down and rest," for instance, but NOT "lay down" in the present tense. A person may be said to be lying there, but not laying there. The verb "to lay" requires an object--"Lay the book on the bedside table," or "the hen will lay an egg." It all gets complicated when we start looking at other tenses. Lessons for lie, lay, laid, lain, etc. come into play. I do expect an author to know how to navigate all these troubled waters, and to practice incorrect usage only when it's obvious she knows better and has a reason for doing so. I can't speak for Bob Dylan, though; he's on his own. Enjoyed the books. Engaging characters. Would read more by this author.
