I had a very difficult time with this book The crude language and voice were just plain nasty and not the least bit attractive I know that some women talk like sailors and are mean bitches, but they don t usually narrate cozy mysteries Some male authors can write female voice very well, but others can t This is a perfect example of one who can t, at least not convincingly for me I wanted to like the book because the premise of a woman whose ex husband is gay and is still her best friend was intr [...]

Plot line was believable but the heroine s emotional responses and attitude towards men sex fell a bit flat and slightly askew Obvious author was a man Perhaps he shouldn t have tried to write in first person as female

Although one would think this is a cozy mystery, and in some ways it is however, the language is not the usual for that genre While I have no problem with occasional swear words, crass words, or tough guy talk, I have no use for constant f words and definitely not the c word, that is just really insulting to any woman If you can get past this caveat, then it s a decent mystery.


Annie

The idea is great but the protagonist, a female real estate agent, divorced from her gay husband whom she dearly loves, is so potty mouthed it becomes offensive after the first few pages I kept on in hopes, but when I got to the part where she complains about another person s potty mouth, I managed not to throw up before closing the book.

I thought this was a cozy mystery, but I was sadly mistaken Crass, four letter speech throughout the first couple chapters Didn t finish due to crude language and rambling passages Don t waste your time.


Charlie

Tried to hard to be humorous and madcap.


Missy McAfee-Thornton

It had a great plot to start, but just didn t catch me.

First Line d by morning I had a yeast infection that you wouldn t believe Divorced from her husband and business partner, Amanda Thorne is determined to become a success in the Palm Springs, California, real estate market, even if it means being forced to deal with impossible clients who love to give her details about their yeast infections Thanks to many celebrities like Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack, Mid Century Modern architecture is big in Palm Springs, and Amanda has just the mansion to re [...]

I debated about giving two or three stars to this book, which has some good points despite serious flaws.It is a comic crime thriller which centres around the world of buying and selling upmarket houses in Palm Springs The US housing market works rather differently from that of the UK, so I m not all that familiar with the way things work, and the use of a realtor as investigator gives opportunities for places where bodies can be found empty houses and for the main character to use the people si [...]

The first chapter is funny with at least two mild chuckles that escaped from my lips That chapter was also long and hyper I had to go take a nap before continuing, and I do not take naps.Amanda Thorne is a woman of obsessions and repeated mention of low confidence A successful real estate agent before she meet, married, and partnered up with the perfect man, Alex, she loses her confidence after they divorce The book begins with Amanda attempting to land a major listing To show she still has it, [...]

I finished reading Three Bedrooms, Two Baths, One Very Dead Corpse by David James a few months ago, but hedged and hawed every time I went to write a review I really enjoyed this novel, and want to give it a 3.85 Sometimes I wish we had the option of a point system between stars, because three stars is not enough Four stars, however, was not quite appropriate because there was one word that ruined it for me The c word for women is highly offensive I believe that this novel will be read mostly by [...]


Joanne

Did NOT like this book Why I didn t like Amanda, the protagonist She vacillated between being a liberated, modern woman and one overly dependent on a guy, most especially her ex husband Yes, I know, the bond seems to be broken by story s end If she had anything positive to say about any female character, I m hard pressed to recall it She had plenty of criticism Amanda reminisced frequently, but I found those memories only loosely connected to the story and added little to the back story She or m [...]


Libri-Diligo

I bought this book new sadly, it was not worth the expense The protagonist, a woman, does not come across as realistic at all Her boorish mannerisms and her tendencies towards crudeness the continuous use of the f and c words are a major turn off I don t mind cursing if it s in character, but this was gratuitous The author clearly also has something against Catholics from the bashing he gives that religion throughout the book He also makes multiple jabs at politics he doesn t agree with It was v [...]

I received a copy of Three Bedrooms, Two Baths, One Very Dead Corpse through GoodReads s FirstReads giveaway program.Let me first state that I don t know why I entered into the drawing for this book It was a mistake I don t read many mysteries or books that are set in modern times, and I don t know anything about real estate.I had to put this book down at the end of chapter four, in which Amanda Thorne visits her hairdresser Roberto in order to fix her hair from a bad encounter with a cactus.I l [...]

I picked this book up at a store because it appeared to be a funny, witty book with a smattering of romance mixed into a mystery Boy, was I wrong This book is atrocious, with crass humor that is frequent, unnecessary and oddly spliced into the story The heroine is flat without any development in her personality, the main lead is her gay ex husband which she pines for the entire book, while still being friends with him My favorite things about this book, were the long tirades about how it is abso [...]

Recently divorced from her soulmate, who turned out to be gay, but is still her best friend, Palm Springs real estate woman Amanda Thorne finds the dead body of a noted environmentalist in a house she s showing Her ex husband, who s in business with her, helps her try to find the culprit who would kill an environmentalist but a developer and the very handsome policeman in charge of the case seems responsive both to her clues and her charms None of it is very probable, but it passes the time One [...]

Thrilled to be a First Reads winner of this book, and dove right into the book as soon as it arrived Thank you GoodReads I enjoyed the ridiculous, laugh out loud moments of this book struggled through coarser moments felt there was just a lot of ebb and flow in the plausibility of this plot I agree with other reviewers that it was obviously a male author and found the romance aspect sorely lacking For me the best part of this story was Amanda s ex husband Alex and their evolving relationship, wh [...]

Amanda Thorne, recently divorced from the love of her life, Alex, when he came out of the closet, is trying to make it on her own as a real estate agent However, the open house for her first big listing goes terribly wrong from the beginning Her car won t start, she has to ride her bicycle, and she has a close encounter with a cactus, and that s just the beginning When she arrives late of course , impatient realtors follow her into the house only to find a dead body I loved this book Amanda has [...]


Brooke

Three starsThree stars because it had promise, but in the end fell short The reader has nothing invested in finding the killer because the reader doesn t meet the victim before he is killed Just boom, dead body None of the suspects are introduced in anything than a superficial way Then the killer is revealed with little lead up, once again, boom The story is like a rough outline, making sure to hit high points with little meat in between I will say, though, it did have some laugh out loud mome [...]


❂ Jennifer

While the plot is a cozy, the language certainly isn t Don t get me wrong, I enjoyed the plot and the humour and the author did a fine job with character development and setting, but wow I am known to swear, and I tolerate colourful language in my books, but some of this was way beyond the pale and a lot of it seemed to be vulgar for vulgarities sake I m not sure that I ll read the next one or not It was a bit rough.


Francine

I could not manage to finish this book Returning it to the library with no regrets The heroine does not ring true Her offensive language might be funny and quirky for some people but I find it is not necessary to the story Amanda could have been hilarious and edgy, but somehow she was cheated by the author who made her cheap and difficult to like I gave it a because I could not get lower and the idea for the book was a good one.


Sam - Spines in a Line

The book seemed interesting when I picked it up, and the writer does have an original way of telling the story, just his language is enough to make the book good However there were a lot of continuity and just plain blatant errors that distracted me from reading the book Some questions went unanswered and I never really connected with the character Not enjoyable for me beyond the basic mystery plotline.


Helen

The book did not hold my interest and I did not finish reading it I read almost three fourths of the book before putting it aside I liked Amanda at the beginning of the book but soon felt no connection to her at all She and Alex just didn t seem very real The stereotypical homosexual gay references were off putting As one of the other reviewers here put it, the heroine s emotional responses and attitude towards men sex fell a bit flat.


Nola Arganbright

I enjoyed the story however the language is somewhat crass from what I normally expect from Cozy Mysteries The author, who is male, wrote as the female lead of the story I enjoyed the characters and the storyline but will not recommend it to my friends due to some of the subject matter that was not necessary as part of the story.


Amy

A laugh out loud funny mystery The lead investigator is a real estate agent who becomes a part time sleuth when a body is found in one of her listings houses She has some interesting sidekicks who make life interesting A fantastic debut I cannot wait for the next in the Amanda Thorne series


Donna

I thought this would be good since it was a cozy The lead character a female Real Estate agent She goes to a house sale finds a dead body who is an environment person The minor characters are all fun and very offbeat.


Amanda

I really enjoyed the character dynamics in this novel.Amanda Alex make an amazing team Regina is a pip Knuckle sounds adorable I look forward to reading about these fun, fabulous characters soon.


Jill Allison

This definitely was not an Agatha Christie mystery No clues to follow Some of the dialog was laugh out loud funny, and I can see why these characters could be part of a series As a stand alone book, however, there wasn t enough character depth.


Roseann Moss

I never got past the second chapter Many great mysteries in this world to read, why continue reading this book Too many rude, crude, sexual descriptions gays, Catholics, nasty parents and grand parents all in the first chapter Save your reading time and.


Jeannie and Louis Rigod

This was a good story ruined for me, by the constant distasteful language and the crudity with which it was used The characters did not need to go there they were valid on their own I do not know if I would buy a next book due to this.
