The McAfee twins series is a rollicking good time! 3 de febrero de 2008
Por Midwest Book Review - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
Jennifer Colt is an author of comedic mysteries, is a screenwriter, and is a resident of Santa Monica, California, a place just crying out for the spoof. Colt is also a former Broadway author. Broadway Books published her first three McAfee Twins books, which were originally self-published novels converted into a trilogy. It was always Ms. Colt's intention to create a long-running McAfee Twins series. Prior titles include: THE MANGLER OF MALIBU CANYON (2006); THE BUTCHER OF BEVERLY HILLS (2005); and THE VAMPIRE OF VENICE BEACH (2007).

The McAfee twins, a/k/a Terry and Kerry, are twenty-something redheads with duo investigating skills, but are individual personalities as different as salt and pepper. They have two relatives in the world besides themselves, Reba and Robert, their aunt and cousin, respectively. It's Christmas on Malibu, and a proposed trip financed by the luscious Reba to Avalon Bay quickly turns into an investigation into the untimely demise of a diving instructor. Aunt Reba is exposed by Cousin Robert in the search for his biological father when Robert posts an old snapshot of Reba on the Internet. Robert's posting is answered with the arrival of his newest canine relation, a toothless and saavy poodle named Jacques. In the meantime, Terry and Kerry are roped into playing Santa's (Robert's) elves in a "made for television" scene:

"Robert hollered from his throne: 'Ho, ho, ho! Come sit on Santa's lap!'
'No.'
Robert was momentarily flummoxed, but he recovered quickly. 'Come along. Santa won't bite you!'
'I'm staying right here.' The kid looked at Robert's pants legs as if they were poisonous snakes. 'Can you hear me up there? Or do you got fat in your ears, too?'"

Jennifer Colt has an outstanding comedic talent plus an ability to create larger-than-life characters that draw in the reader instantly. The McAfee twins are a pleasurable change from run-of-the-mill sleuths, and the constant antics of Reba, Robert, and Jacques' add to the fun. The McAfee twins series is a rollicking good time!

The Con Artist of Catalina Island is Jennifer Colt's fourth book in her popular McAfee Twins series. In Kerry and Terry McAfee's latest adventure, we find them going on vacation to Catalina Island for the holidays with their Aunt Reba and Cousin Robert.

Upon arriving at the island, they hear a story from their driver about a newlywed couple. The wife ran out on her husband on their honeymoon, after finding him playing golf instead of spending time with her. No one has seen or heard from the wife since she packed her things and disappeared. The twins are intrigued by this story and would like to investigate the disappearance of the woman. When they find out they are staying in the same room the newlyweds were in, they start to scour for clues. After some searching they find an unusual diamond ring.

When the husband of the woman hears that the girls are private investigators, he hires them to find his wife. The twins are delighted at the idea of solving this case, as they were curious anyway! But when someone on the island turns up dead, the twins realize this isn't just a case of a missing woman. Throw in a stalker, a psychotic ex wife, a mysterious sexy man, a diamond ring that may put the girls' lives in danger, and you have a hard case to crack!

Will the McAfee twins find out who the murderer is and find the missing woman before she is the next to be killed?

The Con Artist of Catalina Island is a hilarious fun mystery that will keep you guessing until its exciting conclusion. The McAfee Girls know how to have a good time, and they will take you away with them to have a fun adventure. The writing is fast paced and will keep you interested throughout the entire story.

This is a self published book and will only have a limited printing, so hurry up and order a copy from Amazon today. Look out for the next book in this series coming out in the spring of 2008.

Armchair Interviews says: Another fantastic installment in the McAfee Twins series!

Even a vacation for the twins turns into murder 7 de abril de 2008
Por Dawn Dowdle - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
You will often find identical twins Kerry and Terry McAfee riding their pink motorcycles on the highway in Los Angeles with their red hair flying in the wind. They own and operate Double Indemnity Investigations. While they are twins, their personalities are not identical. Kerry is a college grad, but Terry was a cocaine user who did time for possession. Kerry often feels she has to take care of Terry.

The twins are on their way to a vacation with their family on Catalina Island for the Christmas holiday. Once they have checked in, they find out their room was recently occupied by newlyweds. The newlyweds had been arguing in public until the bride vanished. Her valuable rare green diamond ring vanished with her.

The local diving instructor is found floating in nearby Avalon Bay, murdered. The twins investigate. The sheriff is quite angry with their intrusion. A stalker keeps turning up but always just out of reach. It appears the case has its roots in an African diamond mine.

Can they discover the truth about the newlyweds without putting themselves in danger?

I love this series. Kerry and Terry are such fun characters. I always find myself laughing out loud at their escapades. The California setting is always enjoyable as well.

The plot is well-written and has enough twists and turns to keep you turning the pages. I highly recommend this book and series.

I have loved every single McAfee Twins mystery so far. Jennifer Colt's writing is never a let down. Typically as a series goes on, the books start to drag, but these do not! I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
A McAfee Twins Adventure 16 de diciembre de 2012

Jennifer Colt does it again with another McAfee twins adventure. I particularly enjoy the thrills, humour and quirky characters that come in equal measure, as with all her novels. Until this book, I'd never heard of Catalina Island. Having looked it up on the web, I hope someday to visit it.
