Product Description

  • THE PRICE OF CANDY is the 2nd novel in this popular Women Sleuths Mystery Romance series.
~ Passion makes fools of us all ~ When the irrepressible Sandy Reid learns the police have closed the case of an abused body found on the beach for lack of evidence, she feels compelled to discover the identity of the woman, expose what actually happened on that secluded beach that night and catch the perpetrator.
  The almost-too-clever young law student must confront the prominent Congressman who gave the beautiful hitchhiker a ride to Florida and avoid becoming the second victim, unscramble a related child kidnapping that the mother won't report and clear herself of a murder charge that threatens to destroy her dream of becoming a lawyer. Although she's really into her irresistible detective lover, along the way she is tempted and discovers she has fallen victim to a sensuous passion of her own.

  • One Deadly Sister
  • The Price of Candy
  • Such Wicked Friends
  • Chasing Suspect Three

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying the Sandy Reid Mysteries 5 May 2012
By Harper - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don't buy many Kindle books. I will admit to being something of an e-book freeloader. I peruse the daily free offerings, pick them up if they look interesting, and rarely spend any money. So my actually having purchased this book is saying something from the start. I read the first Sandy Reid mystery, One Deadly Sister (Sandy Reid Mystery Series), and enjoyed it enough to purchase this one, the second in the series.

Rod Hoisington is an engaging author who creates intriguing characters. I won't go so far as to say "likable characters"--Sandy has numerous faults that seriously irritate me. I know I would not want to be her friend. Nevertheless, as a character she is well done. The plot pacing is strong, and he does a good job of holding back enough details to keep the reader guessing as to the real culprit. It's no fun wasting my time on a book that gives it all away too soon.

Admittedly, the book has some flaws. Supporting characters such as Moran become more like caricatures. Sandy gets herself into stupid situations that she could handle better. (If I were her, I would carry a digital recorder with me *everywhere*, just in case, and record anyone suspicious when we were conversing.) If the author put some additional thought into these scenes, perhaps they could be carried off a bit more cleverly. The text also had some incorrect word usages that irked me a bit (passed/past, accept/except), but they were minor and few enough that I'm not subtracting any stars.

Overall, though, I recommend this book to fans of the mystery and cozy mystery genres, and I'll be adding the third installment in the series to my reminder list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex. Fodder for mystery n suspense lovers 28 July 2011
By The Intelligent One - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I must say I am getting a little agitated with the writer for not writing more fast enough. I do believe he understands we finish his books as soon as we can get our hands on them. Buck up Rod or we send Sandy in to investigate you! Right, the mention of Sandy reminds me to review this book. I loved the book for many reasons. First, it is a unique story with no "inspiration". Sandy for everyone who knows her has landed in trouble..... again. The plot is complicated by a multitude of characters from the big shot politician with something to hide, to the beautiful and upright stripper... yeah you read it right, the upright stripper, the innocent little jamie and the new desert in town for Sandy's surprising appetite.. Kevin. Of course you will also not miss Moran and the lovely exchanges between him and Sandy. Plus a multitude of characters... Did I mention the freak boy... Well you get it... The pace is non stop... If there is one thing you may regret, it is not reading this novel... But you are smarter than that... Right?

4.0 out of 5 stars Long "Candy" Read 27 February 2013
By Cowboy-not Wyoming - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My second Hoisington read - starring Sandy - struggling law student, a pain-in-butt egotistical, narcissistic District Attorney, and this time, a powerful, but morally weak Congressman. Fun suspense and twists like in "One Deadly Sister". Even though Sandy finds herself in trouble this time, she thinks and out-foxes the D.A. again. Only giving a four-star rating, because the car scene with the Congressman and his passenger - a Stripper - went on and on and on. Didn't add anything to the plot, and this was right in the middle of the book - almost enough for me to put it down. Despite that, still a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Price of Candy Good Review 8 July 2012
By gayle - Published on

This is a fast read and keeps you interested from the first page. It is very seldom that I find a writer that can get my attention from page one and continue my interest through to the last page. This book does just that, the kind of reading that goes way too fast as I just keep reading without stopping, as it holds my attention through to the last page. This is a good read for all persons who love mysteries.
