Denim Blues Mysteries, Book 3: Souls on {B}Oring Street

Score: 5.00 (votes: 2)

Featuring Den and Sylvia, Orlando and Keeya, and Tyler and Erin.

Briar's Point is a whimsical little town with its fair share of colorful characters, crime, and a Cupid suffering from the denim blues...

See if you can find denim blue in each story!

Erin Shanley, a hospice nurse, turns amateur sleuth when she realizes that some of her patients are being swindled out of their life savings by the new "psychic" fortunetellers in Briar's Point. She confides in her neighbor, Detective Tyler Shaw, whom she grew up alongside and considers her best friend. 

Tough guy Ty has been in love with Erin since their disastrous first attempt at a romantic relationship when they were teenagers. Erin has been skittish about love since she discovered her father was cheating on her mother--and Ty is so much like her father. How can she risk loving a reckless, restless adventurer when her mother's loyalty to a man like that brought her so much pain? But when Erin's bumbling sleuthing attempts arouse someone's wrath, she realizes her heart isn't the only thing in danger.

    5 Stars! “Hospice nurse Erin Shanley lives in Briar’s Point but works in the nearby big city of Riverbend. She and her neighbor police detective Tyler Shaw love each other, but she has a relationship commitment phobia having watched her womanizing father break her mother’s heart; especially when he nastily denied her younger sisters Jacey and Paige were his and even claimed they were Erin’s offspring. Two years later when their mom died Erin raised her siblings. Psychics move in next door, which reverts Boring Street back to its real name of Oring Street as they are anything but ennui. However, Erin becomes concerned when her hospice patients misplace jewelry and sign over their inheritances to the psychics. Unable to resist because dedicated Erin wants the end-of-life experience to be as smooth as possible, Erin investigates. Tyler struggles with his beloved canine Ned dying but still has her back as he has since she came home. Erin will need him when someone notices her snooping. The third in the Denim Blues Mysteries proves Ty and Erin are wrong about their street being boring as this is an exhilarating amateur sleuth. The storyline is driven mostly by Erin, who places herself in danger with her inquiry and her distrust of males due to her role model whose accusations led her to be Briar’s Point Hester Prynne and leaves her unable to have faith in Ty. With two stunning, late twists, fans of the series will relish this terrific entry.” ~Merry Go Round Reviews
    4 1/2 Books and Book of the Week Nominee! “Ms. Wiesner has written a good, solid mystery with engaging characters. Erin is a complex soul, and you can understand why she feels the way she does about men and empathize with Ty as he tries to get her to open her heart to him. Past and present are interwoven in this story. It is a good story and I enjoyed reading it. Ms. Wiesner makes her characters real and you won’t have any doubt about how they feel and what motivates them. You’ll find yourself rooting for Erin’s happiness, too.” ~Long and Short Reviews
    4 Stars! “Author Karen Wiesner aims to please with this, her third mystery set in Briar's Point. Unlike many stories involving mysteries and romances together, this author does not push the main characters into bed. Half the story is a mystery with a bit of danger and suspense. The other half is a Christian Romance that will give readers cause to stop and reflect upon their faith, as well as warm their hearts. Backgrounds of the main characters are well developed and their attitudes are sympathetic to any reader who may be going through anything remotely similar (romance wise or medical). The writing style flows smoothly and has thoughtful dialogues. Attention is given to even small details, such as vibrant descriptions of people and their feelings. But most importantly, this story will satisfy a broad range of readers and no one need fear should a minor pick it up and begin reading. Ambrosia for the heart strings!” ~Huntress Reviews
    4 Stars! “SOULS ON (B)ORING STREET was the third book in the Denim Blues Series and was Tyler Shaw's story. We met Tyler in LOVE IS BLIND…AND IT DON’T PAY THE BILLS EITHER, Book 2 of the trilogy. He's Orlando's partner. I fell in love with Tyler! He was so quiet in Book 2 that I wasn't sure about him, but he really comes to life in this story. His quiet strength, gentle ways and sweet words were captivating. I loved the way he handled Erin. He was so patient with her. I thought it was so neat that Erin loved to cook and be at home. She was a very loving and caring woman. I enjoyed watching Sylvia (from Book 1) and Keeya (Book 2) seek out friendship with her. It made me want to be in the group! Yes, there is a story behind the street name, but you have to read the story to find out what it is! The mystery doesn't really develop until about half-way through the story, [and] it keeps you guessing. There is an unexpected turn at the end that was really good! I thoroughly enjoyed this whole trilogy and am looking forward to Red Velvet Mysteries where we will revisit Den & Sylvia, Orlando & Keeya, and Tyler & Erin once again with some new mysteries to solve. I can't wait!” ~Love 2 Read Novels blog
    4 Stars! “I just finished SOULS ON (B)ORING STREET and found the story very captivating. It is a romance with some sleuthing in it. I love the cover. It is well done and colorful. It portrays the theme of the book to a T. This story clean and tasteful, and I could recommend it for young adults and up.” ~Readers Favorite
    4 Kisses! “SOULS ON (B)ORING STREET, the third in the Denim Blues Mysteries, is a quick, easy read. The story is character-story. This is definitely Erin’s story. I felt I came to know Erin very well. She is not a flamboyant character. She is quietly strong and steady. She is a comfort to those in her care, whether it is her sisters or her patients and their families. Ty wants to be around her because of those qualities. Erin has to deal with her past. She is fearful emotionally because of that past. She and Ty are opposites, just like her parents were. Her sister Jacey is also opposite of her. Having to deal with her past through her interactions with these two in the present brings the conflict into the story. Erin is not always right or perfect but she observes, reasons her feelings out, and is able to explain the what and why of her feelings and actions. Erin is also humble and can admit to being wrong and moving to right things. I wish she was my friend. Ty is strong. He is a shoulder for Erin to lean on when necessary. They complement each other very well. I rooted for all to work out for them. I also liked that Ty could admit his wrongs from his past and wish he could undo them. I liked that he was Christian and did not preach about it but lived it. I liked revisiting Sylvia and Denim as well as Orlando and Keeya. These are a good trio of friends now. All are supportive of each other and live their lives as proof of their Christian upbringings. Very nicely done! I also liked the introduction of Erin’s sisters, Paige and Jacey. They are still pre-teens but are observant and live their lives by the examples set for them. Though twins, they are individuals with very different wants and needs from each other. They are a nice contrast because I saw both sides of issues raised through their interactions. I enjoyed the Denim Blues Mysteries and look forward to reading more of this trio’s adventures in Karen Wiesner’s new Red Velvet Mysteries.”
    4 Stars! “This mystery story includes warm characters, realistic scenarios and interesting life issues. I really liked Ty’s strong and reliable character. I also liked Erin’s warm personality. The book is full of interesting discussions. There are arguments on the pros and cons of recreational hunting, the pros and cons of celebrating Halloween and how to react to spiritualists. Also the story reveals difficulties in proving criminal cases of coercion. Once the story moved into the mystery it was…very engaging and moved quickly. I appreciate Ms. Wiesner’s smoothly descriptive writing that reveals realistic characters in real life mystery scenarios. I also enjoy the faith based messages that are not preached but are woven into the story. I liked that the first two books in the trilogy were included in this story. This was a nice addition to the series but I would recommend reading them in order.” ~Reviews for Martha’s Bookshelf
    “This is a nice finale to this trilogy, which places the main focus on the relationship and romance between the heroine and hero.” ~RT Book Reviews
