*** Book Review ***

The Curious Affair of the Witch at Wayside Cross: (From the Casebooks of Jesperson & Lane)
by Lisa Tuttle

...

Review by Mary Dean Kazen

This is the second book in the Curious Affairs series for the main characters Jesperson & Lane. I have not read the first book but I was still able to enjoy this one. The characters were already developed when I started. This caused the story to jump into action in the first sentence. I enjoyed that. And as I read the story I was able to gather what I didn't know about the characters. This is a great mystery story. A man enters their house and drops dead after accusing Miss Lane of being a witch. Now they must figure out who this man was and what caused his aggressive accusation. The adventure begins. The deeper they dig the more shocks them. This was such a fun journey. I really enjoyed this detective partnership. I am going to definitely check out the first book. I highly recommend this book to mystery fans of all types. This is written in a British vocabulary style. I did have to look up a few words but to me that was fun. And once I got the hang of the writing style the story took over for me. I found myself having a hard time putting it down. There was surprise after surprise. I hope there will be more from this duo!

Five out of five stars!

I'll be at the book festival in Tarbert this weekend, and at the World Fantasy Convention in San Antonio the next. See you there?

My vampire story is a very early one, written before I turned 20. Long before the era of sparkly vampires, too!
