A fun to read seriesReviewed in Germany on 22 February 2013
It helps to be from the area (although that was many years ago) but it isn't really necessary. The main characters are rather old but really enjoying life. This is a worthwhile book (series) to read for relaxation. I always feel good after reading one of them. I think the mysteries are well thought out and are within the bounds of reality. A really great read for someone who is learning English. Enjoy!!!
Not enough new storyReviewed in the United States on 16 July 2020
I love these characters and the stories are interesting. But as the series has progressed each book has more repetitive back story on each character and less new story. I noticed on the book before this one but this one seemed to be almost half back story. I'm sorry I'm going to have to quit this book series because I can't see paying for half a story.

Happy FishingReviewed in the United States on 30 November 2009
When you meet Lew the police chief and Dr. Osborne , a retired dentist who occasionally works as the assistant medical examiner in Loon Lake you know the day is set for murder and mayhem. A supposed drowning and a murder in town sets the scene for what turns out to be a double homocide investigation. There is a little misdirection and a lot of memorable characters including the part time -when we need him-deputy who has a record, and cops from neighboring towns who just don't want to seem to help. Just sit back and let Lew and the doc take care of business and have a very pleasant evening doing just so. And when they are done solving crimes the are out to the water fishing and giving tips on certain types of flies. Good Fishing
Fly Fishing for a Good MysteryReviewed in the United States on 26 May 2007
Victoria Houston takes us back to Loon Lake, Wisconsin, and all its quirky citizens. Police Chief Lew Ferris and her good friend Doc Osborne try to solve the mystery of two brutally beaten women, tens of thousands of dollars stolen through a bank scam, and one suicide. All the pieces fit neatly together for a satisfying ending. The characters are what drive the books in the series. You will come to care for the Lew and Doc and begin to wonder what Ray will do next. The fishing scenes will entice fishermen but even those who have never picked up a rod will enjoy the passages. Maybe to the point of trying fishing. Make this a vacation read.
Not Just for FishermenReviewed in the United States on 31 August 2013
This delightful series features the Wisconsin 'Up North' that we all know and love. The characters are memorable and funny. Even though I don't enjoy fishing, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Will definitely read more of this series.
