    This is my first exposure to Sarah Woods Mysteries. I liked the character Sarah. She's a working girl and mother which I can relate too. The short chapters make it easy to read when you sometimes have short intervals to read. Out of the three books the last one, "An Island of Illusions," was my favorite. This could be because it was set in Hawaii. The third book had more action with the plot's twists and turns. The relationship Sarah had developing with another character of the book also made it more appealing. Based on how it ended I think Book 4 seems to be a continuation of this third book showing an interesting plot and location.

    I got around halfway through in book one and I've given up. There are a great deal of mistakes in this. I liked her characters and her way of writing but the errors were driving me to distraction and I can't be doing with 2 more books presented in the same fashion, I'm afraid.Straightaway on page 1 she writes fiancee meaning fiance then on the next page gets it right so clearly knows the difference although later on she went with fiance when it should've been fiancee !! So she wasn't picking up on the distinct variation !! Coffee spattered needs a hyphen, this line did not need the comma-"Noticing, a flicker of light illuminating a person's shadow"......and this line speaks for itself-"Calvin he had some very interesting things to tell me". On used instead of an and a massive ouch for me was "towing the line" and not toeing.There is an issue with sentences being finished on a line halfway along then cutting down into a new line (as I've typed). This happened a few times. Not sure if it's a formatting issue or what but it could do with looking into. Ingenuous was used when I'm pretty sure she means disingenuous then was and not had. I reached a line where we had a misused comma yet again and realised the exact same error was repeated a couple of pages before this and gave up on it.She mentions a psychotherapist she goes to who'd made a pass at her before but she'd done nothing about it which I found more than a little farfetched, too. I wasn't impressed she stayed with her husband, either, since they were clearly none too bothered about the other person.These could've been good little stories as there was great promise but not for me in this incarnation.

    Undemanding readI ploughed through all three stories but was glad to get to the end.I could have given up on them and never wondered what had happened.Easy to read writing style but very weak story lines and unconvincing characters and dialogue.There is no tension or suspense in any of the stories and everything is just to neat!I won't be reading anything else by this author and wouldn't recommend her work. It is free on kindle for a reason

    Good, but not much mystery or thrilling.Sarah is stubborn and gets results. But takes along time to end the dead marriage. First book about her secretary's murder, start of private investigator. Second one involving run down death of husband. Third is so called kidnapping of baby by his father. So many clues at the beginning, read carefully, you'll know who is doing what. Little love, sorrow and loss. Also murders, chasing.

    These were fast reads. I am also reading my gardening book and I put one of these short stories between gardening reads.Not a lot of mystery but she is a good enough writer that she keeps me reading. I'll probably get the next series.

    DifferentA little different type of mystery.....more focus on daily life than mystery details. I'd give it an okay rating - nothing special.

    Oh boy, where to start. I kept reading all 3 books hoping that it would improve, but no luck.Sarah Woods is a massage therapist but she really is a bored wife and mother that is looking for excitement in her life, and she is preoccupied with sex. Her husband is the typical bad husband so of course she has to look around for something else, doesn't she? I guess some people might like a story of a woman who sets herself free from a bad marriage, but I couldn't see how she was a better wife than he was a husband.

    Good three storiesI got this book on kindle unlimited as next boxset was free to download. The 1st book starts off with her friends murder. This sets the scene for the rest of the series. With her marriage on the rocks, her son growing up and off to college and a new love interest Sarah has a new career

    Loved it!Finally! A different kind of mystery solver who doesn't bake cupcakes or have best friends who own a bakery. Sarah has a regular business as a masseuse and works as a PI on the side. The plots are interesting and decidedly un-campy. I can't even figure out the whodunnit so I'm really surprised at the end. Great read!

    Keep your interesrI enjoy the characters and there is plenty of action to keep you involved and guessing . A true mystery should not be readily solved in your mind and the author has the twists and turns to give it a surprising ending. I would recommend this book for anyone that enjoys shorter mysteries

    InterestingI always love a good mystery with suspense thrown in there and this series definitely has that. I'm not a huge fan of stories where the main character is older,married and attracted to other men. I get that it's realistic but I'm reading fiction, so I don't need it to be so real. That being said, I like Sarah so I will continue reading about her adventures.

    A fun read.Three adventures of a wife, mother, message therapist turned south. Each episode has a conclusion so it isn't frustrating like some series where you can't take a break but holds interest so anxious for the next episode.

    Great SeriesI admit I hate seeing "Series" and "Boxed Set" so saying this series is fun is a delightful surprise. Reading short stories with the same characters in different situations can be fun. I am excited to say I have the next three volumes and will be reading them soon.

    Unlikable sleuthReally wAnted to like this books. Read all 3 books. Sarah is mean spirited with he husband, cavalier about finding a male client masturbating in the shower at her office, willing to do a hand job as part of an investigation without a murmur of complaint. I'm done.

    Might be a good story but I won't be reading it. I bought the audible version which is of very poor quality. The narrator is not ideal either.

    NoThis mystery story captured my interest. A bad marriage, a masseuse, and a murder. It kept my attention until the bad language reared its ugly head. So no go.

    Easy readsNice easy reads, I like this type of book to cleanse my mind of psychological thrillers. Enough to keep you guessing without being too taxing on the brain.
