Logline After she watches Vertigo in the cinema, the main heroine, Cece Caruso, finds a cell phone in her purse which doesn t belong to her She receives a call on the phone, a stranger asks her to come to a certain place But when Cece arrives there, she witnesses a murder and gets under suspicion herself.
While the twists are really Hitchcock style, this novel is too feminine for my liking There s too much focus on the description of clothes, whole parag Another book picked up based on the cover Another series started in the middle Another good find While I may appreciate the rich detail of the fashions and accessories that the protagonist wears and describes, I will never be a 40ish divorced female author with an adult daughter, son in law and grandchildren However, I am a big mystery buff and given that the character is an author who writes about great makers of mystery detection, that is enough to get her my empathy and attention.
The plot of this book is convoluted and our heroine is flung around emotionally and logically Why this is a bit confusing for the majority of the book, it all comes clean in the end Heck, it is a book about Hitchcock after all and it has a nice denouement in the ma My one word review is, Huh I am not sure why I even finished this one I enjoyed most of this series as fluffy mystery brain candy, but this book starts in left field and keeps rolling like an unchecked grounder The only thing that made less sense than the plot twists was the end Skip it and read her first few instead Hope Kandel gets back on track.
This book started strong and fizzled About mid way it stopped making sense at all Why didn t Cecelia simply go to the police with the cell phone threat proof And why did she run away to begin with The world will never know.
Cece writes biographies, and next up is Alfred Hitchcock Kendal has written a book worthy of that devious prankster, with Cece running for her life after witnessing a murder And there s no Gambino on whom to call, as Cece has broken their engagement This book was published in 2009 and seems to be the last in this series A shame, but plan to try Kendal s Dream A Little series.
I just read this for my Mystery Book Club It started out amusing all kinds of Hitchcock parallels but by the end I was ready for my next book.
I read about 3 4 of this book, and enjoyed it, BUT, it was one of those books I ve unfortunately been reading a lot of, lately, in which, I enjoy the book in spite of its mediocrity, and feel like, a lot of what I enjoy is the nostalgia, or bits that I m bringing to the novel as a reader I love the premise of this series The stories follow Cece Caruso a woman who writes biographies about famous mystery writers or movie directors and gets caught up in real life mysteries which imitate art.
I also thought it would be interesting to read a mystery in which the protagonist lives in my hometown area of Los Angeles So, I wanted to like Cece Caruso, and I wanted to like the atmospherebut in the end, Cece s personality had too much of what I f What a great story So many twists and turns Lots of humor as well
