    1 thought on “Stalking the Puzzle Lady”

    1. I've been thinking about getting into the mystery/crime genre, and what better way to segue from chick lit to this than with a lady sleuth? The main character is a spitfire grandma who swears, smokes, and can't remember how many husbands she's had, so definitley entertaining so far.

    2. This series is just fun "brain candy." It's clean, although the main character and two others who are in all of the books do engage in unmarried sex. There are no graphic details. Everything stops at the bedroom door. Crime scenes are not described in gory details.

    3. I think this was my least favorite Puzzle Lady book. I didnt like the story line, the characters were not funny as usual and seemed to just be arguing all the time. Would not recommend it.

    4. Interesting murder mystery about stalking. Love the characters as always and excited to read the next book!

    5. Another great Puzzle Lady Book. I am enjoying reading this complete series in order. In this one, Cora goes on tour to promote the cereal that sponsors her. She doesn't want to do it, but need the money due to some losses in the stock market. Before leaving, a puzzle is delivered to her door.iments of a knife. It is the second puzzle with a message to her in it.While on tour, one of the people connected with it is killedled an accident, but Cora knows better. When another murder occurs, she know [...]

    6. Cora's at it again. She needs money so she's agreed to do a cereal ad campaign, moving from city to city, trying to find some children to star in the commercial with her. Still struggling with her fame, still wanting to NOT be the Puzzle Lady but getting pulled in anyway. This time, she's got an uber-fan, someone's who's willing to kill to get her to notice him.Some movement with her niece, Shelly, and her boyfriend, Aaron, which was nice to see. All of the rest of the cast was there as well (Be [...]

    7. Cora has a problem. One of her many fans is stalking her, but she doesn't know who it is. And when he turns to murder, things really get out of hand. As always, I found parts of the book laugh out loud funny while other parts were highly suspenseful. If only the endings were stronger.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    8. All you fans of Grandma Mauzer should like this book. It is easy to read and has crossword puzzles in it for you to solve. Cora isn't exactly like Grandma Mauzer, she has more on the ball. Yet somehow they could be related. The story takes place on the Eastern Seaboard area- Mystic Sea Port is one of the stops. It is not pee in you pants funny but there are a few chuckles along the way. No graphic sex or violence. It is all implied. (Is that good or bad? lol)A good rainy day or beach book.

    9. I read this as far as the first crossword puzzle and stopped. It seemed like sort of a cross between the goofy characters of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series and the mystery as a backdrop for something else gimmick of Joanne Fluke's recipe mysteries. In this case the gimmick is crossword puzzles which contain clues. I didn't find either the characters or the puzzles interesting enough to continue.

    10. This was ok - kind of a like the Janet Evanovitch mysteries, but not as funny. This book contained either the best Freudian slip ever or my all time favorite editing error: "Cora let out an ejaculation indicating Flo was a person of low IQ involved in romantic coupling illegal in several states." That was worth reading this book for.

    11. Does anyone else find Sherry annoying? I mean, she gives Cora so much grief about the fact that she (Sherry) is the real puzzle lady and that Cora can't do puzzles. However, Cora isn't pretending to be the puzzle lady for the fame, she is doing it to help Sherry. So why does Sherry always act like she's helping Cora? And could Sherry be any more of a jealous nag?

    12. I love witty characters, and the puzzle lady is one of them. I just imagine her with teh zingers and the quick wit annoying the hell of those who think they are incharge I just love that character!! Great job, again Mr. Hall!

    13. Good series . I think the concept of pairing puzzles and crime is brilliant . I like how the book keeps you guessing about whodunit until the very end . I like Cora's spunk in this book , it was refreshing . I would have to say this is my favorite in the series so far.

    14. The Puzzle Lady is the anti-Miss Julia. I agree with those who compared her to the Grandmother in the Stephanie Plum series. She is no lady. I like Miss Julia better.

    15. Seems like a good series.Older woman pretends to be puzzle lady.Really her niece is. TV promotion.Cora Felton is stalked.Pretty good, cute and light.

    16. Not the best of the Puzzle Lady series. THere was a bit too much fighting going on between the main characters. It just didn't fit the storyline.

    17. Cora has to go on a publicity tour for the cereal she advertises on television. She has a stalker or maybe two. Dennis is back following Sherry and young girls are getting killed

    18. Another convoluted Puzzle Lady adventure. I was surprised at the end which was a nice twist. Solid cozy read, looking forward to the next book.

    19. I like this series, but it seems that this author is getting tired of it. Like a lot of mystery series, they seem to be more of a formula, instead of being so much fun like the first ones.
