Addicting – Douglas M. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…
This series started out charming me with stories of the old days in an area I once called home. Then the writing skills of J. Tunnell carried the saga forward with action, tension and drama. I could not stop until the series was read. A great way to spend a few afternoons.

Fun – Elaine C. Petrosino β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…
Fun. Sort of a β€œbeach read β€œ but with interesting historic details and a fierce protagonist. Even a decent who dunnit aspect. I enjoyed it.

Highly recommend – P. Wipf, Reader’s Favorite β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…
“I finished The Great Loveda Brown ready to start another adventure with her. Jolie Tunnell creates an adventurous series of the early 1900s in the tiny mountainside town of Idyllwild, California. Loveda was running from her unfaithful and angry husband when she stumbles into the town of Idyllwild. Hoping to hide from Billy long enough to find an alternate route to her uncle’s place in Los Angeles, Loveda hides in the closest hotel to the stagecoach exchange. The next day, Billy’s body is found just miles from where she is staying. She must lodge in town until her name is cleared. Another death keeps her there to hunt for the connection between the two deaths. Loveda draws the killer’s attention as she gets closer to the truth. Can she avoid getting killed long enough to get justice for those murdered?

Jolie Tunnell skillfully draws her readers in as the mystery of the murders reveals a more cynical plot. The Great Loveda Brown is the first in her Idyllwild Mystery series and sets the pace and distinguishes the characters. The novel develops gradually into a fast-paced mystery. You can never be sure which of the locals has an ulterior motive until the killer is revealed and their past displayed. Through an intricate web of characters, history, and suspense, the author constructs a mesmerizing storyline. The characters are engaging while keeping an air of mystique. This novel begins a series that is fresh and innovative. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy good historical fiction.”
