liking this series, can't believe I just discovered it. Going back to read them all!
Really liked this one. Story was intricate enough to keep me guessing, and the characters just keep on developing. Great narration helps too. <><
one of my favorites of this series so far. Kept me guessing till quite near the end.
Newly married Southern California newspaper reporter Irene Kelly (seen before in Dear Irene, etc.) doesn't immediately recognize the bum on the bus stop bench who says he knows her. A few weeks later, meeting with some old friends, she learns that he was Lucas Monroe, her statistics teacher in college. That same night, she drives a friend home to find the woman's wealthy husband dead from a self-inflicted gunshot. The next day, the longtime Las Piernas city manager resigns, refusing to give a re [...]

This is the fourth book in the series of eleven (as of 2011) I'm rereading the series.I found this one to be just okay, not great. There were a lot of characters and I had a hard time keeping them all straight so I gave up and focused on the main ones.It's been a while since I'd read this one so didn't remember anything about it but it didn't take me long to figure out what happened to a couple of the key characters.Considering it was written and set in the mid 1990s, it's funny to read about [...]
Jan Burke is a current author whose Irene Kelly series has a well-deserved following. This one, my most recent read, begins with Irene's chance encounter with Lucas Monroe, her former statistics professor, now homeless and trying to recover his good name. Irene becomes increasingly aware that Lucas's emergence is tied to suicides, resignations, vicious attacks, and even murders, and tries to piece together the story before it's too late--for her.Ms. Burke delivers a satisfying tale, a great esca [...]
REMEMBER ME, IRENE - VGBurke, Jan - 4th of Irene Kelly seriesNewpaper reporter Irene Kelly stumbles upon the dead body of her favorite instructor from college and begins to sift through the trail of dirty deals and dangerous acquaintances that destroyed a gifted man.Even though this book started a bit slow, it had a very good ending. I am rapidly becoming a very big fan of Jan Burke's. Characters, plots, dialogue, sense of place are all very well done. She is now on my "must buy" list.
Another in the Irene Kelly Southern California newspaper reporter mystery series. Again, Irene finds herself in the middle of trying to solve a murder mystery. This one is a bit different in that Irene does not get beat up physically or mentally during the course of the novelAs with this series, the plot is multilayered and a number of issues have to be resolved/solved by the novel's end. A good read.
This was my first Irene Kelly book. It moved along at a good pace and didn't drag out the storyline. Although some references to her relationship with her husband and other things in her past made me feel I had missed something by not reading the books in order - but the book was good enough to entice me to rectify that.
While researching the bus system in Las Piernas Irene Kelly meets up with an instructor from her college days. She does not initially recognize him but does uncover his story and learns what happened to him (and Las Piernas) because of it.
Good; Continuing character: Irene Kelly; reporter comes across street person who is her former college instructor, and he (along with others) ends up dead when he starts resurrecting an old story about corruption in city development.
Book 4 of the Irene Kelly mysteries, wherein more is learned about Irene's background as she solves a mystery about her college statistics teacher. Each mystery fleshes out Irene more, and I am raring to go on to number 5!
One of my all time favorite mysteries. The beginning hooked me and I couldn't put it down. I really deserves FIVE stars but can't put it in that category.
Fourth in a seriesNewspaper reporter Irene Kelly solves mysteries a la Kinsey Milhone. She meets a homeless man who later she finds out was her mentor/professor. She must find out who killed him.
This is one of my favorite series. If you are looking for a new mystery author to try, start with this series. Not this book, obviously! Jeez!
Another in the Irene Kelly journalist mystery series, this is well worth the read.
Remember Me Irene is a thrilling page turner, written with wit. It has interesting characters and vivid descriptions. It will keep you guessing right up to the end.
A worthy 4th novel in this series. It is multilayered and the plot is sophisticated. I did figure out the major “twist” pretty early on, but the book still surprised me in places. Highly recommended.
Not as good as some of her other ones. Was too predictable but an ok read.
Enjoy her descriptions. Plot is good. Story line is great. Good book.
I really enjoy these books. They are nostalgic with pagers instead of cell phones. Irene and Frank are such a great couple. The mystery pulls you along until the very end.
Pretty predictable.either that or I've read enough of the style to figure it out! I like the style.
The best of what I've read of the series thus far.
Another great book in this series. Recommend to read.
