I enjoyed Patricia s stories of her mystery adventures with her friends Jermaine and Barbie.. living in her home and starting her own agency. Her assistant ,Sam is a fun chap with Downs . I particularly enjoyed her antics involving her garage full of cars.. she continues to foster her love for Alistair.. but needs to be divorced. Soon to be ex wants half of all she owns But can he get it ?.
I discovered Steve Higgs and his Patricia Fisher stories with the Cruise Ship Series, which you should read first.. Every story is delightful. Patricia Fisher is delightful. This series takes place mostly on land with Patricia Fisher's private detective company. It always amazes me that authors can think up so many wonderful plot lines and Steve Higgs does in spades! Each book is relatively short (around 160 pages each). Although I don't usually like short books because I feel there isn't enough room to develop the characters, the characters in these books are fully developed and you really like the heroes and heroines and really don't like the bad guys. Kudo to Steve Higgs for giving me so many hours of pleasure.
This second set of Patricia Fisher mysteries did not disappoint! It has all the wacky characters and impossible situations that the first series had. Mrs. Fisher solves mysteries with some keen observation, some inventive intuition, and sometimes just plain dumb luck. It’s a great series for summer vacation reading.
As well as entertaining. How it all begins is a surprise, it only gets better. The cast of characters are definitely different. The history of each will keep you interested, in the way detective stories always do. Then laughing through so many of their antics.
The characters are refreshingly real and down to earth. The plots compelling. The solutions to the mysteries are unique and cagey. The books are a pleasure to read. I can see the characters, feel the characters, hear their conversations, imagine the ship and its routines, and feel like I'm a part of the investigations. I love the books and can't wait to read the next one. Thanks to Book Bub for introducing the books to me. Million of thanks to Steve Higgs. Keep on writing please.
I read 10 Patricia Fisher books The characters are lively, entertaining and mostly believable. They are all a great read just for pure entertainment. I have to admit there were several moments when I admitted “that wouldn’t happen in real life” but that’s why it’s a work of fiction. I’m a sucker for the good guy coming out on top, and these filled the bill, on that.
Steve does it again in his second 10 book set. I couldn't put it down. I love all the interplay between the characters. I love that this series can take your breath away one minute and laughing until the tears start to roll because your laughing so hard. This whole series is enjoyable from beginning to end and I can't wait for more of Patricia's adventures.
Mr. Higgs amazes me with his prolific writing, humor and creativity. I find myself frequently asking how does he come up with this stuff. Even though the frequency of murders is implausible it's fun light reading. Good for relaxing at the beach or in a comfy chair. The characters are engaging and loveable. I look forward to more Mrs. Fisher tales.
Well loved every minute of this series. But hated to say goodbye to all the characters I’ve come to love. So many good times with them and laughs. Now Mr. Higgs your challenge is to keep creating the Patricia Fisher series alive and interesting-looking forward to the next series.
