Excellent writing, a very fast-paced thriller that you won't want to put down.

Set, in Vancouver, on the West coast of Canada and Grandville Island where the heroine Maggy lives on her boat. The story starts as, Jimmy Daniels, a private investigator, is stabbed to death in an alley behind the Black Cat Blues bar, where Maggy, is a blues singer. While he is dying, he reveals to her a secret! Enters in her life, Jimmy's brother, Logan, a gorgeous man, who intends to find out who is the murderer! They will team up to find clues to help their case, but danger is still lurking in the background. Who did it? Another man named, Hunter, will offer his help, both Hunter and Logan will fall for the beautiful Maggy. Which one will she choose? Is she ready for a long time commitment? Is she safe from danger with the murderer still not caught? Just follow her wild adventure to know more.

This thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat until the exciting conclusion. Black Cat Blues, is one of the very best thrillers I have read. I have Ms. Carson on my must read list now, and can't wait for the next book. I enjoyed it so much that I highly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed 22 May 2016
By DCP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So far, I can't agree with the wonderful reviews. I've been reading the story for about 2 hours, and I don't know if I can finish it. The characters are stereotypical, character development is shallow, the events are predictable, and the flow of the story line is choppy. Maybe these things will improve as the story goes on.

However, the punctuation is so bad that I have to stop and reread sentences over and over to try to figure out the intent, and this may be more effort than I want to put forth much longer. Commas seem to be a big challenge to the author. They are where they don't belong, and they are missing where they are essential. The author praised someone as her editor. I can't think of a polite comment about that.

A second important issue for me is that everything the characters do, think, and feel is explained to the reader rather than being shown through the character's behavior and interaction with other characters.

I'll keep reading for a little while longer in hope of improvements that justify the good reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensuous music of the Blues 22 January 2016
By Helena Korin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Maggie, a blues singer, witnesses a murder in a back alley. Not wanting to get involved with the police she keeps the dying man's words to herself. But when she meets the victim's brother, Logan, she confesses. He's drop dead gorgeous but lives his life by much more conventional rules than Maggie who doesn't trust cops. As the chemistry between them ramps up Maggie's intuition begins working overtime. Is she being followed? The murderer could be stalking her. The bone chilling dampness of Canada's west coast is woven into the darkness of the plot as one by one men are murdered. Is her sexy dockside buddy, Hunter, a true friend or could he also be a suspect? Add the hidden stash of cult leader Brother XII's gold to the plot and you have a fast paced suspense relieved by sizzling sex and laced with the sensuous music of the blues. I loved the lyrical sea faring imagery and the musical quotes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mystery that will grab you from the first page. 23 January 2016
By G Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jo-Ann Carson has created another wonderful strong female character. Maggie Malone is working several odd jobs but would love to be able to pursue her dream of singing. One night after her gig as a sultry blues singer at the Black Cat Blues bar she leaves through the back door and finds a body in the alley, impaled with a spike. As she leans down the dying man says something to her and she finds out later this is a message for his brother Logan. She doesn't feel like she should share everything with the police and later on she finds herself as a target for the madman. Also adding excitement into the story is an old diary that points to the location of a buried treasure. How does it all come together? I love Ms. Carson's writing style. It is very engaging from the first page and very hard to put down. I'm already in anticipation of the next Maggie Malone book.
3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay 30 September 2016

I had high hopes at first, but then the story started to drag and I had to force myself to keep reading. I didn't feel any connection with the lead characters, and in fact thought Maggy was irritating and wishy washy whenever she wasn't performing at the Black Cat. I also hate love triangles and it seemed that Maggy opted to hurt Hunter in favor of a sexual relationship with Logan. Hiwever, I thought the subplot about Brother XII was more interesting, and could have been a book on it's on. SPOILERISH...I could mot understand why Maggy just didn't tell what Jimmy said to her as he lay dying...especially when she first met Logan. And also, how big was that alley where he died as it seemed that many of the main characters were hidden there secretly watching anyway..lol. I was just ready for it all to be over by the time the big climax happened anyway.

Lo and behold, I discovered I have the next book in my huge TBR pile, so I will be seeing Maggy and the gang again soon.
