5 Hearts! "In another wonderful book from Mss. Wiesner and Spindler the officers of my favorite police force work to solve some bizarre crimes while giving us a look into their personal lives at the same time. One of the best things about the Case Files is that the authors are able to delve into so many different types of crimes. Each challenges the officers to step away from their needs as people to focus on the happenings that confront them on the job. They step up to the tasks, sometimes sadly but always professionally. These men and women could police my town any day. They're the type of characters we wish lived in our neighborhood. This is another exceptional example of the collaborative efforts of the two authors. Murder on the Heartstrings has Detective Pete Shasta trying to get away from murder and mayhem to celebrate his wife Lisa's birthday. Seems crime follows the cop everywhere as the hotel masseur is killed the first day of their vacation. Life goes on in Falcon's Bend amidst tragedy the officers see in their work. All this reviewer can wish is the authors don't run out of ideas for unique villains! This book, like all the others in the series, is superbly crafted, full of action and great police work." ~Dee Dailey for The Romance Studio http://theromancestudio.com/reviews/reviews/falconsbend2wiesnerspindle.htm
“4 Stars! Murder on the Heartstrings: I had fond memories of the tales of Sherlock Holmes when everyone within the luxury resort were told to gather in the lobby for questioning. The story fills just under one hundred pages. This means I found myself treated to a short "who-dunnit" mystery with ample enough information to test my wits and try to solve the case before Pete and Lisa did.” ~Detra Fitch for Huntress Reviews http://www.huntressreviews.com
4 Stars! “Murder On The Heartstrings: Fun whodunit read. FALCON’S BEND CASE FILES, Volume II takes place after the books. I very much enjoyed catching up with some characters from previous stories. I’m caught up on the whole series now and really looking forward to a new book. I still think it’s amazing that this series is written by two authors in different countries. It all flows so seamlessly and, as I’ve said before, is one of the absolute best procedurals being written. If mysteries/procedurals are your thing, the Falcon’s Bend Series should be considered a must read.” ~IvyD for Manic Readers http://www.manicreaders.com/index.cfm?disp=reviews&bookid=3003
4 Stars! “A deliciously intriguing place to read about, but I won’t want to live there. Those were my thoughts as I finished reading the six sagas that comprise the latest Falcon’s Bend chronicle, FALCON’S BEND CASE FILES, Volume II. Valiantly, detectives Pete Shasta and Danny Vincent and their families carry the reader through horrors that pass as everyday occurrences in the Falcon’s Bend. Authors Karen Wiesner and Chris Spindler do a solid job of stoking and sustaining what I have come to call “the Falcon’s Bend Creepies,” even when the book’s characters are not in Falcon’s Bend. The first story, for example, Murder on the Heart Strings, finds Pete and Lisa Shasta heading for a romantic Valentine’s getaway at an isolated and distant mountain resort. But murder finds them there anyway. Shut in by a blizzard, the spot is so remote that Pete is the only law on the scene, and Lisa finds herself working as her husband’s right hand sleuth. You get the picture: Honeymoon Haven Inn morphs into The Orient Express. Meanwhile, back at The Bend, Danny Vincent attempts to hold his nerves together while managing his wife’s first pregnancy and a case in which a husband claims his wife has come back from the dead. Flashback emits such an unsettling, bizarre atmosphere I didn’t close my shower curtain for two days. On the other hand, Up in Smoke had me laughing throughout all of its wacky fifteen pages. FALCON’S BEND CASE FILES, Volume II is like a box of six small candies. Each story is a tasty morsel, just enough, complete and fulfilling. And the wonderful thing about this batch of goodies? When you finish reading them, you can go back and read them again.
“FALCON’S BEND CASE FILES, Volume II includes 284 pages with six short stories featuring Detectives Pete Shasta and Danny Vincent (along with Officers Carfi and Jenson). The stories are well written, properly mysterious, and give a real life feel for characters we know from previous books. “Murder on the Heartstrings” is an entertaining, plausible story.” ~Pat Elliott for Book Loons Reviews http://www.bookloons.com/cgi-bin/Review.asp?bookid=11464
“Murder on the Heartstrings: I love a good mystery! A man and wife detective team even better. The two planned a nice quiet vacation, and instead are stuck in a winter storm and Pete is coerced into detective duty. Lisa, I feel your pain. I found this story to be enjoyable. I loved how Pete and Lisa's different ideas meshed, and th
