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

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

A very fast paced read revolving around a murder mystery, Murder at Lolly Beach is about Eve Sawyer, a journalist student who is invited to a vacation to a beach by her close friend. Eve goes to the beach without any hesitation to have some peace time, but instead finds herself in the middle of a murder when the truck of her chef friend meets with an accident and her friend goes into a coma.
The local reporter, Jake, invites Eve to investigate the case along with him. And then starts the cat and mouse chase to find the murderer, who seems to be always one step ahead of them and keeps wiping off all the clues and the witnesses.

Tension mounts as the plot goes through a lot of twists and turns till the murderer is revealed.
A gripping plot, pleasant characters and an easy read, I liked this book. I am thinking of going back and reading book 1, which I haven’t yet.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Murder At Lolly Beach: An Eve Sawyer Mystery by Jane Suen was a really good read. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect going into this novel, this is the first I’ve read from this author, and I wasn’t disappointed. It was a really good read, but also just kind of bland to me. It didn’t grab my attention and hold me that I expected it would. I’m not sure why, because I was expecting a little bit more. It felt not rushed exactly, but a little hurried. It was a very quick read and an easy read. Th characters were interesting as well as the plot. It did have a twist to it. I thought it was pretty predictable up till the end. All in all this was a solid read and I would definitely read more from this author in the future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Murder at Lolly Beach has just as much suspense and mystery as book one. Once again Eve Sawyer cant stay away from a good investigation. But this time she ventures out to the beach to visit her friend when a mystery just lands on her lap. Eve is a stubborn young woman who will always find a way to get involved whether her help is wanted or not. This can be read as a stand alone, but if you enjoy this then you should read book one.

I have to say, I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the first in the series, I did still enjoy the story line though. I loved seeing how ambitious Eve was once again. Even on holiday she was willing to drop everything just to help out with a local crime. I really enjoyed the dark twist at the end, I would never have guessed that happening.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Murder at Lolly Beach (Eve Sawyer mystery series Book 2) by Jane Suen. I LOVED this book. Its the story of Eve Sawyer who is a college student and part time detective. During Summer break Eve accepts her friend Cassie’s invitation to stay at her grandma’s beach house with her and another friend. Eve thinks she is going to enjoy a relaxing time of naps on the beach, fun dinners and nights out on the town but what actually happens is Eve gets drug into a murder investigation. Eve meets Jack Thorne a beach reporter and they begin to investigate a food truck owner’s attack. Will Eve be able to figure it out before someone else gets attacked? Book 1 does not have to be read before this one but it will make the story much more enjoyable due to a few details you learn. I highly recommend this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give Murder at Lolly Beach: An Eve Sawyer Mystery by Jane Suen, 4 stars.

Eve is at it again, although this time she is thrown into it. The second book in the series, Eve is continuing to grow into her work, even having a mentor this time. While she did not choose to solve this mystery, she feels compelled to. It takes us on a journey into what is really happening and just whom is behind it. Like any good mystery, this is not a linear path. There are many forks in the road and the twisting story will have you guessing until the end.

I could not put this book down and highly recommend this book and series to fans of wonderful mystery novels.

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

Murder Creek is the first book in the Eve Sawyer Muster series by Jane Suen. I love all of her books, as they are short but sweet. Every page counts with this book. So much is happening and it feels like a fully story despite its 159 page length. Eve is a journalism student with somewhat of a 6th sense. She passes over Murder Creek one weekend, and feels very drawn to it. Upon brief research, she discovers there was a massacre there centuries ago, as well as a possible killing/missing person case. She decides to investigate further, traveling to the small town. She quickly noses her way into the small town and its residents. I loved where the story ended up, wrapped up perfectly with a little bow. I don’t want to give anything away, but do yourself a favor and read this book. It will only take a day or two. Now, onto book 2 in the series!

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Murder at Lolly Beach is the 2nd book in the Eve Sawyer Mystery series by Jane Suen. It can be read as a stand alone, but I chose to read it after Murder Creek. I did not enjoy this book as much as the first. It didn’t have that action packed mysterious feel that Suen’s other books do. Some of the characters felt somewhat not needed. I felt like the ending was a little rushed. When the main part of the story ended, I didn’t really even understand what happened. I didn’t have that ah-ha moment, and had to read the epilogue to piece it all together. Overall, it was an okay story, in my opinion. There was the mystery, and it was definitely a mystery- I didn’t piece it together and figure things out. I wish we learned a little more about Cassie and Blake, but I suppose it is Eve’s story…

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

Murder Creek opens with a sketch of Eve Sawyer that introduces us to our protagonist. She is an empath with an acute ability to understand the actions and motivations of others. Being attuned to the people around her enables her to notice details that others might gloss over. She seems to have an innate sense of appreciating others, and that, coupled with her calm and carefree attitude towards life will be one of the key factors that will help her on her journey to solve the disappearance of Lacey Walken.
This book has a similar narrative arc as Murder at Lolly Beach, and I enjoyed it just as much. Eve is a likeable character, one who you find yourself rooting for without even meaning to. She is honest, focused, and tenacious in not giving up even when others wish she would. As the clues to Lacey’s disappearance become revealed, I couldn’t help but try to suss out who was responsible right along with her.
I normally have a preference for longer books, but I found this one to be just the right length for the story. It was a fun way to while away an afternoon at home, cozy in my pajamas, with a fire going for ambience. I definitely recommend this as a lovely way to spend a few hours.
Dig in and enjoy!
