Murder Creek (Eve Sawyer mystery series Book 1) by Jane Suen – Review by Jennifer Gordon

Murder Creek (Eve Sawyer #1)Murder Creek by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this cozy mystery novel featuring journalism student Eve Sawyer who sets out to investigate a twenty year old missing persons case. Lacey Walken disappeared in suspicious circumstances from Murder Creek, a place named after the infamous murders that happened there centuries before. The deeper Eve digs into the story the more danger she puts herself in as someone in the small community is not happy that this old case is being looked into again. I found Eve was a great main character as she’s likeable and relatable and really bought the storyline together. I found Eve’s psychic visions really added a different layer to the overall story. The author really bought the sinister setting of Murder Creek to life with her descriptive narrative and I felt engaged in the story. I was hooked from page one and the twists and turns kept me guessing until the end as the suspense built. I look forward to further books in this series.

Murder at Lolly Beach (Eve Sawyer mystery series Book 2) by Jane Suen – Review by Angela Hayes

Murder at Lolly Beach (Eve Sawyer #2)Murder at Lolly Beach by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

3 ½ Stars

 

Murder At Lolly Beach is the second instalment in the Eve Sawyer Mystery Series by Jane Suen. This follows on from book one, and even though it can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading the first book before starting on this one- as that is where we are ‘introduced’ to Eve and discover her personality, as well as a lot of her strengths, quirks, and flaws. Murder Creek also lays the foundation to the series- so I feel it is worth the read to have all that information and important details on hand.
As we discovered in Book #1, Eve Sawyer is a college journalism student with a talent for sniffing out a good story- and after all the dramatic developments she had been through recently with her Murder Creek investigation, Eve was glad to have the summer vacation to regroup with some much needed rest and relaxation. What better way to relax than heading to the beach with friends. But, you guessed it- Eve has a knack for attracting trouble, and it’s not long before she is immersed in another investigation.
I wonder what awaits Eve in Book #3.

Thank you, Jane Suen!

Murder at Lolly Beach (Eve Sawyer #2)Murder at Lolly Beach by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Murder at Lolly Beach: An Eve Sawyer Mystery by Jane Suen is a cozy mystery story. Don’t let this story fool you. Just when you thought you have everything worked out you find out that you do not. Jane completely turns you around. What seemed to be a simple murder turns out to be something a little darker and a bit more sinister. Jane has cleverly woven a web of lies and deceit and finely tuned a well thought out plot.

A vacation has never looked so dangerous.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Murder at Lolly Beach by Jane Suen is the second book in An Eve Sawyer Mystery series. This can be read and completely enjoyed as a standalone story. This is a fairly quick read that I did not want to put down. Eve thinks she is getting away from all the craziness of school but in turn, finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery while on her break. I enjoy the character of Eve and how she wants to help and get to the bottom of what is happening to the people at the beach. There are some twists and turns to keep the reader’s attention as well as a bit of a bubbling romance. I enjoyed the story and the characters. I look forward to more from this series and the author in the future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was excited to see what Eve Sawyer would find herself mixed up in the second book of THe Eve Sawyer Mysteries, Murder at Lolly Beach. The first one had me hooked on this style of writing by Jane Suen so I was more than ready to dive in no questions asked. This was one of those books though that you thought you knew what you were going to get and got something even a tad more dangerous and daring than you expected. I loved the story and how it kept me on the edge of my seat as I followed Eve and her nosey self on her vacation at Lolly Beach. This is one of those books you will want to read with the lights on and the doors locked, and with plenty of time to finish in one go because you won’t want to put it down for one second. I am highly anticipating the next book in this series, I am hooked. I hope this is a series that Jane Suen will pursue for a long time coming.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Murder At Lolly Beach: An Eve Sawyer Mystery by Jane Suen is the second book in the Eve Sawyer Mystery series. This book can be read as a stand-alone.
I always look forward to starting a new boom by this author as she has such a wide variety of books that you never quite know what you are about to get.
I really enjoyed the character of Eve in this book – she was not only interesting to read about but also had depth to her which a lot of characters tend to lack.
The book was well written and had enough twists thrown in to make the book intriguing. This author has such a brilliant way of writing – anything I have ready by her I have thoroughly enjoyed and this book is no exception. I am looking forward to whatever is to come next from this author already.
