    On the surface, Murder in Devon is not much different from many other English mysteries and that s not a bad thing There s a certain comfort to be found in familiar locales and with British police and homes and personalities A developing romance is not unwelcome and our leading lady is intelligent and perfectly capable of ferreting out some answers although she does jump into the fray a little precipitously perhaps because she herself starts out as a prime suspect Having said that, I must con On the surface, Murder in Devon is not much different from many other English mysteries and that s not a bad thing There s a certain comfort to be found in familiar locales and with British police and homes and personalities A developing romance is not unwelcome and our leading lady is intelligent and perfectly capable of ferreting out some answers although she does jump into the fray a little precipitously perhaps because she herself starts out as a prime suspect Having said that, I must confess that there s one thing about Casey that I particularly liked.Casey stands up for herself.So often, the heroine defies the police behind their backs and puts herself in harm s way without thinking through the possible consequences Casey, though, has a different modus operandi she tells the detective what she intends to do, listens to him tell her why she shouldn t do it, and then tells him she s going to do it anyway No sneaking around avoiding Rod and, while he may be unhappy about it, Rod knows the score and deals with it accordingly How refreshing is that The mystery here is solid with plenty of possible motives and killers and I, for one, did not figure it out too early I had my suspicions but that s all they were until near the end and the unearthing of powerful secrets added a great deal to the story.Maggi Andersen lives in Australia but has set this mystery in England Was that a good idea Well, there are two ways I look at that I truly love fiction set in the British Isles, especially mystery, and that setting certainly can t be beat for atmosphere On the other hand, Australia calls to me and I find myself searching for genre fiction set there so I would not have been unhappy if Ms Andersen had chosen to locate her story in that part of the world Then again, the fact that Casey is an American ex pat probably makessense, logistically, if England is her second home So, I wasthan content to be visiting England this time and perhaps the author will favor us with an Australian mystery down the road In the meantime, I ll look forward to what I hope will be manyinvestigations for Casey and Rod.Reviewed by Lelia Taylor, May 2012

    I ve had a great time reading this romantic suspense Maggi Andersen s writing hooked me from the first two lines, I think It might have been the first one though, I don t know It was that kind of instant connection with a story, you know what I mean The plot was intriguing and it did pull me in I am a sucker for murder mysteries, and I love the ones that really make my think about who did it I thought about who did in this case until the very end of the story, I had my suspicions and a circ I ve had a great time reading this romantic suspense Maggi Andersen s writing hooked me from the first two lines, I think It might have been the first one though, I don t know It was that kind of instant connection with a story, you know what I mean The plot was intriguing and it did pull me in I am a sucker for murder mysteries, and I love the ones that really make my think about who did it I thought about who did in this case until the very end of the story, I had my suspicions and a circle of suspects, so to speak, and I was glad to find out in the end that it was one of my suspects I m not letting you know anything, of course, spoilers are d00m But the murder mystery aspect of it wasn t the only thing keeping me guessing, I was so anxious about Casey and Rod, will they end up together, won t they So it was a suspenseful read on all accounts, really.The romantic part of the plot wasn t in your face,like it was woven into the structure of the story, and it helped built up a lot of tension The chemistry between the main couple was awesome, but all characters were intriguing and rather charismatic here, even the bad guys in fact Don and Tessa were really intriguing too, both as a couple and on their own, and though Don s character was an absentee for most of the story, I felt he was quite solidly built, I had a clear sense of who he was.The writing was, perhaps, my favorite part of it all Accessible and really well paced action tension wise, it helped build up all the tension you needed to be on edge of your seat but also gave a lighthearted note to everything going on Thanks to that charming nature, I felt the whole thing intensely but at no point did I get really overwhelmed The tensest moment of the plot was indeed tilingtoward overwhelming, but it was a quick spike, enough to keep your adrenaline pumping but not too much I love that balance in my reads, and I found it here.Overall, I say you should give this a try if you re into romantic suspense Definitely had a great time reading it

    I had a great time reading Murder in Devon by Maggie Andersen The heroine is Casey Rowan, a journalist for a women s magazine in England While staying with long time friends, Don and Tessa Broughton, she wakes one morning to a gruesome scene Don has been murdered and Tessa is clinging to life Although Tessa eventually recovers, she can t help identify the murderer.Considered a suspect in the beginning, she is the only one left alive in the house propels Casey into action, much to Detective I had a great time reading Murder in Devon by Maggie Andersen The heroine is Casey Rowan, a journalist for a women s magazine in England While staying with long time friends, Don and Tessa Broughton, she wakes one morning to a gruesome scene Don has been murdered and Tessa is clinging to life Although Tessa eventually recovers, she can t help identify the murderer.Considered a suspect in the beginning, she is the only one left alive in the house propels Casey into action, much to Detective Rod Carlisle s annoyance He thinks she s meddling, she thinks she investigating and isn t about to stop.The clues lead her down different paths One which takes her into the world of collectors of famous art and artwork stolen by the Nazis in World War II, which I have always found a fascinating subject For Casey, the mystery of Don gets deeper and she soon learns you may not know your friends as well as you think Everyone has secrets and so did Don and Tessa When Casey is cleared as a suspect, Rod reluctantly agrees to let her use her journalist privileges to probe certain suspects Until she becomes a target herself.There is a nice romance between Rod and Casey The first time they consummate their relationship, it s a short but hot scene After that, their time together isimplied While I would have liked a littlesizzle in the later scenes, it certainly didn t take away from my total enjoyment of this novel The plot was solid and well thought out.I don t know what the author s intentions are, but I would like to see another story or two involving Rod and Casey Their chemistry is good and I think they d be a fun and entertaining crime solving duo I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you are a fan of murder mysteries The author keeps you guessing until the end

    Murder in Devon was a thoroughly enjoyable romantic suspense novel by Australian author Maggi Andersen Set in the chilly, wary town of Devon, England, women s magazine journalist Casey Rowan returns from America to spend some time with close friends Don and Tessa Groggy from sleep one morning she stumbles across a horrific murder scene in their sitting room Don has been killed and Tessa has been seriously injured and hospitalised Casey s inherent journalistic drive kicks in and she is desper Murder in Devon was a thoroughly enjoyable romantic suspense novel by Australian author Maggi Andersen Set in the chilly, wary town of Devon, England, women s magazine journalist Casey Rowan returns from America to spend some time with close friends Don and Tessa Groggy from sleep one morning she stumbles across a horrific murder scene in their sitting room Don has been killed and Tessa has been seriously injured and hospitalised Casey s inherent journalistic drive kicks in and she is desperate to find the killer regardless of handsome Detective Rod Carlisle s advice for her to steer clear of their investigation Casey is stubborn and persistent and ruffles up the feathers of people who do not want the truth known and will do anything to ensure that happens Not only is the crime plot and suspense well written and engaging, with Casey tramping across England and even over to Germany to investigate the murder, the romantic element of the story is also well paced with plenty of chemistry and tension Casey is head strong and determined whereas Rod islevel headed and sensible and his deep attraction to her drives him to protect her and keep her safe I really enjoyed the slow building connection between the two of them, with Rod s honesty about his feelings for her at the outset and Casey s defences that put up barriers to their relationship progressing throughout the story There s plenty of interesting characters in this novel and I felt Casey grew as an individual and in her relationship with Rod, overcoming some of the difficulties that prevented her from committing Murder in Devon is an absorbing romantic suspense novel with plenty of action and twists

    Casey Rowan, an ex patriot American living in England, discovers one of her best friends has been murdered, another is lying near death Her world is totally shattered and she is determined to find out who is behind these horrible events This does not sit well with the lead detective on the case, Rod Carlisle Not to mention that Casey is on his list of suspects In fact, she s right at the top of the list.Much to Rod s dismay, Casey continues to interfere in the murder investigation as well as Casey Rowan, an ex patriot American living in England, discovers one of her best friends has been murdered, another is lying near death Her world is totally shattered and she is determined to find out who is behind these horrible events This does not sit well with the lead detective on the case, Rod Carlisle Not to mention that Casey is on his list of suspects In fact, she s right at the top of the list.Much to Rod s dismay, Casey continues to interfere in the murder investigation as well as put herself in harm s way at every turn He finds himself quite attracted to the beautiful American despite knowing that nothing good can come of getting involved with a murder suspect To make matters worse, Casey is obviously getting someone angry with all questions making her the next target Rod has his hands full finding a killer and keeping Casey safe.This is a fast paced mystery that reminds me quite a bit of an Agatha Christie mystery The suspects are presented in a clear, concise manner giving readers a chance to figure out whodunit themselves Casey is a very strong willed heroine who I liked from the beginning It took me a little longer to warm up to Rod, but I did like him.This book has it all a good mystery, great characters, a beautiful setting and a nice romance all mixed into one enjoyable read.FTC Disclosure The author provided me with a copy of this book to review This did not influence my thoughts and opinions in any way All opinions expressed are my own

    Maggi Andersen s Murder in Devon is a riveting suspense story, which I thoroughly enjoyed, despite it not being a genre I usually read.The plot is fast paced with lots of twists and turns.The characters are real and well developed.The descriptions are visual, putting you right there.Maggi Andersen has a great talent in this genre, a departure from her Regency historical novels I have read and enjoyed The research and details are superbly done.I highly recommend this book.
