Recent Comments "The Last Blue Plate Special"
Social Psychologist Dr. Blue McCarron is back in the second installment of the series that bears her name. It is as good as the first—and with a far better ending. Those of you who have read my other reviews know that I am a sucker for a well-edited book, but you also know that when an author has a major publisher—like Mysterious Press, a division of Time Warner—I expect the editing to be good. But no editing staff can alter an author’s voice or her knowledge or her vocabulary or the inn [...]
I'm glad I gave this second novel about Blue a chance. I liked the character in Blue, but was not happy with the overwhelming antipathy toward men. This second book has almost none of that, and developed the characters nicely. I like the author's writing, the dog, of course, and the unusual setting. Good read.
I didn't expect to like this book better than the first one, Blue, but I think I did like it better overall. My comments about Blue read like I didn't like it that much, that's mostly because I was discussing it with a group of other people and sometimes it seems as if we tend to pull out the inadequacies of a book rather than praise the things we enjoyed. At least that's what I seem to end up with at the end. Not being bound by a discussion when I was reading this book meant I was free to enjoy [...]
he sequel to the amazing Blue, this novel again features kooky social psychologist Blue McCarron and her lack of crime solving skills. It pits her against a creepy Christian fundamentalist killer who's killing powerful women. But only powerful women who get plastic surgery. Um, sure. It was a fairly weak book, I'm afraid, and didn't at all live up to the thrill of the first. The mystery was too transparent, and the 'how', well, far-fetched, at best. I'll wait for the next one, but not with as mu [...]
I've read several of Padgett's books. Her earlier books are quite different than these last two, "Blue," and this one. The protagonist is the same and Blue is a very unusual person who is a social psychologist and becomes involved in solving a mystery. She is a lesbian and lives in the desert east of the San Diego area. The desert plays a big role in the story. I think most all the characters are rather quirky. But I enjoyed the story and the plot kept me guessing throughout.
I enjoyed the story, but there was a lot of social psychology "stuff" there got in the way. I always felt it pushed the lesbian relationship of Blue & Roxie too much.
The characters are likeable but the plot is incredibly weak.
Someone does not like women politicians and is knocking them off.Set in San Diego, Roxanne, a forensic psychologist and Blu, a social psychologisy are hired to consult on the cases.
She is a fantastic author!
Slow start - this was the third time I tried to read this book. Once I got into it I really enjoyed it.
Gotta read all the books! Don't think I've read any others
