Author:  Alan Jacobson
Genre: Mystery, Karen Vail Series #2
Published:  2009 
Personal Rating: 3.5/5 (good)
Format: Audiobook 
Yearly Count: 26

On vacation in California to unwind and de-stress, Karen Vail finds herself in a wine cave with a dead body. Unable to control her natural instincts to catch the killer, Karen inserts herself into the case. 

This was my first Jacobson, and I was a tad bit underwhelmed. I was really anticipating something gripping, and it wasn't. It is the second in the series, so I could have missed some vital info from the first, but I think it should have been strong enough without it. It had a cliffhanger ending, so naturally I'm left wondering, but unfortunately, I don't have a stronger desire to pick up the next book.  Wish I did!


  1. I love your honest thoughts...doesn't sound like one i'd want to read!

    1. Staci ~ This one seemed like a typical mystery series that's good to get to know the main characters in order to enjoy it fully. Could be wrong, but that was my experience with this one.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
