    Even better than the first book in the series I love me a good mystery, and this book didn t disappoint I know it s older, but if you haven t read this series, I can wholeheartedly recommend it for all mystery fans Start with book 1 first to maximize your enjoyment, but this can be read as a standalone if you must PI Micky Knight is back at it again She s not drinking any, but she still sleeps around and treats her friends like crap at times I love her sarcastic view on life and I have Even better than the first book in the series I love me a good mystery, and this book didn t disappoint I know it s older, but if you haven t read this series, I can wholeheartedly recommend it for all mystery fans Start with book 1 first to maximize your enjoyment, but this can be read as a standalone if you must PI Micky Knight is back at it again She s not drinking any, but she still sleeps around and treats her friends like crap at times I love her sarcastic view on life and I have a feeling that if you read this, you ll still find yourself rooting for her too despite her many flaws Micky is a very complex character, and I m loving how Redmann is showingandnuances to her character with each new book I know today s only Wednesday, but I m still marking this as a Fallback Friday book so it s easily searchable in case anyone cares to look at tags for that This one holds up very well, and didn t feel dated at all The only thing I could possibly mention is that some scenes wereintense than they would be if this were in present days since Micky et al didn t have access to cell phones My, my how cell phones have both hurt and helped us Yes, this is a long read, but I found myself wishing it was even longer Redmann perfectly entwined romance right alongside the mystery, and created some wonderful secondary characters that fit so well right alongside Micky I can t wait to read the next book.4.5 stars, but I ve decided to round down to 4 since I just can t see myself re reading anytime soon Unfortunately, it ll be too difficult to forget the whodunit part of this one and accept this as new again for a re read I can wholeheartedly recommend this series for anyone who s a mystery lover, and I will most certainly continue readingbooks in this series as soon as I get some ARC reads finished

    Nails slowly dragging across a chalkboard.The plot Micky Knight is back to being a magnet for all things dangerous when she s hired by Dr Cordelia James to find out what s going on at her clinic after receiving some anonymous threats When the body of a young woman is also found at the clinic, Cordelia finds herself in danger of being arrested for murder and it s up to Micky to prove the Doc s innocence.The characters Honestly by the end of this book the only characters I still liked were To Nails slowly dragging across a chalkboard.The plot Micky Knight is back to being a magnet for all things dangerous when she s hired by Dr Cordelia James to find out what s going on at her clinic after receiving some anonymous threats When the body of a young woman is also found at the clinic, Cordelia finds herself in danger of being arrested for murder and it s up to Micky to prove the Doc s innocence.The characters Honestly by the end of this book the only characters I still liked were Torbin and Hepplewhite Can t all of these women just be thrown into a padded cell somewhere Actually, I take that back Three things could happen A they have an orgy, B they kill each other, C they kill each other while having an orgy The writing What I loved about the previous book was the balance between all the drama, action and humor, this book was just nonstop angst and aggravation Despite racing through this story and the book still being a page turner, I had to take several breaks because these characters were driving me up the wall The special Micky Oh she s special alright If she saw a banana peel on the sidewalk, instead of saying I should avoid that she d say this is going to hurt Of course it will hurt you idiot Stop making horrible choices The negative The book is packed with one trigger after another Anything seemed to be fair game and though the majority of these difficult subjects and situation were well written, it was still gut wrenching to read about some of them The verdict I must be a bloody masochist to continue with this series because as many times as I wanted to throw my reader out the window, I m still going to continue Rating for this ends in a 3,5 Book 2 survival kit 1 bucket of ice cream1 bottle of scotch not the cheap kind 1 straitjacket1 bottle of Advil1 psychiatrist on speed dial 1 GF or bestie to hide your book or E readerMay the odds be ever in your favor, if you decide to read this.

    Well, my journey through the Mickey Knight series continues, and because I want them to last, I try spread them out accordingly But I gotta apologize to other authors, because whatever book comes in between may not fully grab me, because I am so distracted as to just WHAT Mickey is going to get up to next It s a conundrum people What do I do Ms Redmann, I am only finished book 2 and I am utterly and unabashedly HOOKED Severely so Like bait to a fish, like a first sip of coffee in the mo Well, my journey through the Mickey Knight series continues, and because I want them to last, I try spread them out accordingly But I gotta apologize to other authors, because whatever book comes in between may not fully grab me, because I am so distracted as to just WHAT Mickey is going to get up to next It s a conundrum people What do I do Ms Redmann, I am only finished book 2 and I am utterly and unabashedly HOOKED Severely so Like bait to a fish, like a first sip of coffee in the morning, like a lesbian in a all female mud wrestling pit.What I loved so much about book 2 is the pacing The author does not shy away from very intense subject matter, so be warned It gets deep and dark, I m not kidding, But also, heart pounding adventures happen throughout, and we readers don t have to wait all the way to the end for the big bang Mickey manages to get herself in trouble pretty much throughout There is also a healthy dose of lady lady stuff in quite unconventional manners sprinkled through, and I do mean real sprinkles from yummy donuts, people Sure there is one theme of infidelity in this read, something that could hit a raw nerve with some, but I can t stress enough how mature it is dealt with here It was.somewhat refreshing Is that the right word For a taboo subject, I thought Ms Redmann dealt with it quite well, considering the character While I love the romance stuff, always and forever, it doesn t dominate or take away from the story, but sure adds ooomph to all the parts that need the ooomph, ifyouknowwhatimean.This author has created a character that is so flawed, so complex, so kind yet infuriating, with layers that go beyond my own comprehension Her wit and devotion and loyalty and angst and vulnerability just keep unwindingand , and I m only on book 2 God..justyes YES Like, Meg Ryan s Yes in When Harry Met Sally There you go

    This was fantastic, even better than the first book Redmann writes wonderfully, 400 pages flew by and I wish there was 400Mickey is my favorite type of character, flawed but just wants to do the right thing Mickey makes you smile one minute, than breaks your heart the next This book is written in first person, so you really become connected to Mickey For those that don t care for first person POV, fear not Redmann write so well, that the secondary characters become so alive, that you This was fantastic, even better than the first book Redmann writes wonderfully, 400 pages flew by and I wish there was 400Mickey is my favorite type of character, flawed but just wants to do the right thing Mickey makes you smile one minute, than breaks your heart the next This book is written in first person, so you really become connected to Mickey For those that don t care for first person POV, fear not Redmann write so well, that the secondary characters become so alive, that you almost become as invested in them as you do Mickey.The mystery was good, the action was great, and there was enough relationship romance to tie it all together This is a Lambda Literary Award finalist for mystery, I can t believe another book was better i ll have to figure out who won I going to believe they made a mistake not making this the winner If I could give this a rating of 6 Stars I would.If you are like me, and missed the magic of Redmann s writing back when these book first came out, don t pass these up Start at book one though, it s fantastic too

    Note those with issues problems with reading depictions of rape rape like torture abuse etc should not read this book.Sex Something of the main theme of my review for the first book in this series I think I must have forgotten that this book here was a lotdrenched in sex than the first Plus cheating This is a messed up group of friends in a lot of ways I think that two of the, I believe, six friends are borderline 99.9% sane, while the other four border on beingoh, kind o Note those with issues problems with reading depictions of rape rape like torture abuse etc should not read this book.Sex Something of the main theme of my review for the first book in this series I think I must have forgotten that this book here was a lotdrenched in sex than the first Plus cheating This is a messed up group of friends in a lot of ways I think that two of the, I believe, six friends are borderline 99.9% sane, while the other four border on beingoh, kind of messed up I might be under or over counting in the messed up column Danny, Micky, Joanne, Cordelia least messed up sane ish Elly I think that s her name , Alex again, think that s her name Danny spent a good deal of time in the first book, and a lot of time in this book taking every opportunity to make snide, smearing, awful comments about and to Micky who, unless she s drunk, takes it as her due, because she knows she s garbage which doesn t mean she won t lash back view spoiler Not exactly sure how I occasionally faked it with you is loads worse than you are a slutty slutty worthless whore but, whatever hide spoiler Due entirely to the fact that the two women were lovers 8 years ago, and Micky freaked out when the relationship went super serious what with Danny using the L word , and did everything she could to kill the relationship that would make herself look bad i.e., fucking everything around her that was female, while drinking enough to selflessly keep several alcohol business in operation Micky well, she s the main character Messed up childhood I d beexplicit, but spoilers , messed up relationships with her family including abuse both physical and mental , messed up adulthood what with thinking of herself as garbage bayou trash , drinking away her pain, and fucking everyone around her I think there s only one female friend Micky hasn t slept with of the six already listed, which I note since I m leaving people like Emma off this specific list, for reasons Well, of course the book starts with Micky attempting to better herself two months sober and celibate , which isn t helped by Danny still beating her up, and the others expecting Micky to be Micky a drunken player.Joanne has her own messed up childhood, has veryodd ideas about the word love and the word relationships , as can be seen by her moving from being among the few women Micky hadn t slept with to the thousands who have view spoiler then tries to rape her while drunk one of those I m fucking you, you said yes at some point, so that means you gave consent even if you don t now type of actions but that s a different story hide spoiler I do not really want to say why Cordelia is messed up forreasons but She fools around with Micky this occurring in the prior book , but then says she isn t sure she can be with Micky, but give her time and she ll bedefinite yes or nolater She ll call That was two months before the start of this story, and the first time Micky and Cordelia actually see each other again is at a party and Cordelia appears to arrive with a date still without, you know, having ever let Micky know where she stands relationship wise with Cordelia Cordelia plays a lot of games, creates a lot of drama, even though she gives off the vibe of being super serious and not being a drama queen while at the same time leaping to conclusions always going for the negative interpretation when Micky is involved.Ah well Weird mix of messed up adults The mystery Quite an interesting mystery Two part someone is killing women through botched abortions is it a sloppy doctor Serial killer Something else The police, because of evidence so far gathered, strongly suspect Cordelia second part everyone at the shared clinic community building Cordelia works at are being harassed by letter and or phone this is where Micky comes in she s hired to investigate part two she looks into part one of the mystery because of the chief suspect and her lack of belief that Cordelia could be a murderer.The romance The Joanne Micky Alex triangle reads like it could fit in perfectly in a lesbian pulp book of the 1950s 60s Heck, I think I even read this specific story line in a book from then First book didn t really have a romance, and wasn t a romance but a mystery other than the pursuit of Cordelia by Micky second book, this one, is also a mystery not a romance Though there was that love triangle mentioned, plus further pursuit of Cordelia by Micky On a side note, I never really liked the Micky Cordelia thingie, but whatever Mystery, romance, hmmswhat else Family you can t choose your blood relatives, but you can chose your family or something like that That little saying doesn t work here her horrible family, i.e Aunt Greta and Baynard aren t actually blood relatives and the chosen family, i.e., the Danny Elly Joanne Cordelia Alex Micky friendship, is bloody messed up Hell, even Torbin got on my last nerve in this book, and he was barely in it the one good not really a relative of Micky s, a cousin As a mystery, I really enjoyed this book As a slice of life , people have fucked up livesI also enjoyed this book So, 4 instead of 5 Well, enjoyed, not loved It s hard to push this into a love column when so many people are fucked up in this book.Last point, tied into review for first book once again I started a book roughly corresponding to previous read, as in Feb 18 2014 vs Feb 19 2017 Again unplanned, that Heh, just noticed it took me longer to read this book this time just one day in 2014, 4 days this time Though there was a three day weekend that occurred I read less on weekends Let me see, using this as a theme, book three reread will occuroh I should have already read book three, what with how I appear to have read the book February 19 2014 Hmm Oops February 22 2017

    Struggled with this one, at the end of the last book I was looking forward to a mystery with a firey chemistry and romance and was left disappointed From the beginning my anxiety levels rose too much and I couldn t bare to read any Skim a few pages and still no improvement There was nothing wrong with the story or the writing, it was gripping as I had to know how it ended I think on a personal level this was a hard read I was pleased with it how it ended but it took far far too long to Struggled with this one, at the end of the last book I was looking forward to a mystery with a firey chemistry and romance and was left disappointed From the beginning my anxiety levels rose too much and I couldn t bare to read any Skim a few pages and still no improvement There was nothing wrong with the story or the writing, it was gripping as I had to know how it ended I think on a personal level this was a hard read I was pleased with it how it ended but it took far far too long to get there for me
