The Detective's Secret Daughter Reviews

    I like how each of the novels in this series offers a piece of the puzzle that is Olivia Henry's murder and then concentrate on a separate mystery in and of themselves. I figured out a portion of what was going on with the mystery at the Sugar Plum Cafe, but some parts were definitely surprising. I look forward to what happens next in Fitzgerald Bay.

    Questo libro mi è proprio piaciuto, anche se avevo capito subito chi era il colpevole. Beh, fin da quando è comparso nel primo libro ho pensato che fosse un poco di buono...Sono curiosa di vedere se ho capito anche la soluzione del mistero "lungo", per così dire. Anche se ad ogni libro si aggiunge un particolare... Io ho un sospetto in mente fin dall'inizio, staremo a vedere.

    This Love Inspired suspense is a really good clean, quick, story. There seems to have been six different books released in 2012 in this series, each written by a different author. The series is about law enforcement siblings fighting for justice and family on Fitzgerald Bay. I checked the website and it seems there is something called the LIS that unites these authors who don't meet physically, but hand off the series to the next author after finishing their portion which is primarily about one of the family members. A very interesting premise. One that deserves more space on my Kindle.

    This is the 3rd book in the Fitzgerald Bay series. I am liking it so far.I probably would have never started this series if I hadn't won the second book in the series in a first reads free giveaway. I am loving this series. I had it figured out who was terrorizing the Sugar Plum Cafe. I just can't seem to figure out who is trying to frame Charles for the murder. I think I might know but I guess I will have to wait and see or see if my idea changes. Looking forward to reading the other half of the series. Just wish I din't have to wait until June to do it when the last book comes out.

    The Detective's Secret Daughter is a stand-alone book within a group of books called Fitzgerald Bay. The characters are common throughout the books but they are written by different people. This book has romance and suspense as a body is found and the guilty party has to be found. It also solves a crime that everyone thought was already solved. I must admit I picked up this book because the author and I have the same first name. I certainly am glad I did.

    Another very good book in this series of six, so it's not too expensive to own. Again set in Fitzgerald Bay, a woman left as a girl, comes back with a child, and starts a business only to have problems with the man that killed someone in the first book. This is another fast paced story, good characters too. Next one is The Widows’ Protector which I am reading now.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I became attached to the characters and found myself wanting to know what happened and unable to put the book down until I did. A very nice story too.I would recommend this to anyone who likes a murder mystery with romance included or the other way round. You'll find yourself unable to put it down too.

    I really like how Owen and Victoria's relationship is rekindled when Owen learns of their daughter. This is especially true since they both are trying to do what's best for Paige, and their renewed love comes about as a result of their time together.

    This is a new author for me and I'm very happy with her work. I loved how the new crime was intertwined with the murder going on since the beginning without taking the focus away totally. More clues on that case was revealed and I'm starting to put the pieces together.

    My first time reading this author. Victoria Evans returns to Fitzgerald Bay after being away for ten years, to run an inn and raise her daughter, Paige - and to introduce her to her father, when the time is right. Owen Fitzgerald, a police officer, was in love with Victoria when they were in high school, but on the night that her father crashed his car into Owen's cousin's car, killing both drivers, Victoria left town. As did Hank Monroe, who also had a thing for Victoria, and who is now a police officer as well, sharing an office with Owen. Rumor has it that Hank is Paige's father, and Hank isn't bothering to deny said rumors. Meanwhile, the inn is broken into, not once, but twice, and Victoria and Paige are living in fear while the local police force tries to find the culprit. For the most part it was pretty standard fare, but the last 30 or so pages (this is a large print, by the way) literally had my adrenaline kicked up and my fingers gripping the pages. So good job, Ms. McCalla!

    This line of suspense/romance books from Steeple Hill are very simple, Christian and clean. This is the third in the Fitzgerald Bay series. The main mystery was solved but the second underlying mystery is still ongoing. This one seemed a little far-fetched to me. Even the title was a bit dramatic; or perhaps I've just been reading too many of this type of mystery. :-)Ok for a quick, simple read but not a lot different from other books in this genre. Probably 2 1/2 stars.

    I won a copy of this book through the Goodreads First Look Giveaway. Despite the mystery not being much of a mystery this was not a bad read. To me it was pretty easy to pick out the bad guy. It was a decent story, clean, and had some Christian values packed in so it is something I would let my daughter read. I liked it enough that I wouldn't mind reading the other books in the series.

    The Detective's Secret DaughterAnother great book in the Fitzgerald Bay mini-series. Victoria Evans runs the Sugar Plum Inn with her 9 year old daughter, Paige. When Owen Fitzgerald answers a 911 call at her business, he realizes that she has been keeping a secret from him for the past ten years - his daughter.

    Maybe 3 1/2. This review goes against others I have written in the past - I generally a n ot fnd of books that telegraph the ending. This book, however, was well enough written that, though it was fairly obvious WHAT would happen, I cared about HOW, and the people TO WHOM it was occurring. Not great literature, but a nice, sweet read.

    Well written continuing story by different authors. Each main character is a member of the same family. This author did well in keeping the story flowing and interweaving the past history of the hero and heroine and why the hero never knew he had a daughter. One of the books I felt compelled to keep reading as quick as I could to see what would happen next.

    This is a quick super easy read, unfortunately I knew who was doing all the B&E about 5 chapeters in so there was no real "suspense" in it for me. Basically I read these books to shut my brain up at night so I can go to sleep! These type of books are great for that for me!

  • Courtney

    Really good build up of suspense. My only complaint is that the last page was a quick jumble which I felt would have flowed better if it had taken an extra page or two and gone a little slower. Wish it was mandatory to put book 3 of 5 and ends with loose ends

    This is the first book of the series that I have read so they were obviously holes of the story that I did not understand. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the character development. It was a nice easy read one day and would be willing to read more of the series.
