    One thought on “Dead Madonna”

    1. For me, these books provide the pleasure of recognition, as I lived near Eagle River for a time. Houston is a pleasant, gracious person, and this is reflected in her work. She does a decent job of portraying the flavor of the Wisconsin Northwoods, an area she obviously loves. Her characters are likeable and the stories are fun.This book had the same tone of the other books. There is a pleasant sameness to this series. The characters' personalities are always pretty much the same. There's always [...]

    2. Dead Madonna by Victoria Houston is a light mystery set in a small town by a lake in Wisconsin. Two women are brutally murdered. Chief Lew Ferris along with her sidekick Doc Osborne are up to the task of catching the bad guys. I like Lew, she is a competent, kind woman with a sense of humor, it is nice to see a woman portrayed as a real person. Lew and Doc share a passion for fishing and each other. The mystery is light, the characters likable, the setting interesting, especially if you like fis [...]

    3. "Hook, Line and Killer"The bucolic Wisconsin fishing resort town of Look Lake awakens one morning to a double homicide. Party girl DeeDee Kurlander is found dead beneath an affluent tourist's houseboat. Across town, a prominent widow lies savagely murdered in her elegant living room. And police chief Lew Ferris is shorthanded enough to deputize her own romantic interest, Paul Osborne, to assist as investigator and coroner."Fishing being one of their shared passions, Lew accepts her new deputy's [...]

    4. Two brutal murders in a small Wisconsin town are clearly linked. Police Chief Lew Ferris and her retired-dentist boyfriend Doc Osborne set out to solve the double crime before anyone else gets killed, and along the way solve a bank-fraud scheme and more.The identity of the murderer was plain as a pikestaff fairly early on -- so much so that I spent most of the novel wondering how on earth the principals could be so stupid as not to notice the evidence staring them in the faces. That in itself mi [...]

    5. I am always looking for new mystery authors. This book looked interesting, but I was very disappointed in both the story and the characters. It takes place in Wisconsin. This was the most interesting part. It must be quite beautiful there around the lakes and streams. The main character is a female chief of police whom I just didn't feel any reality about. Her sometimes deputy and medical examiner, is her lover, and the town's dentist. I was married to a dentist for 49 years and the description [...]

    6. Being a woman from Wisconsin who likes to get out and fish once in a while, it's a no-brainer that I would really enjoy Victoria Houston's series. I used to save her books to read when I stayed up at a cabin near Rice Lake and enjoy the familiar names to the area as I read. I enjoy that the author has chosen to tell the stories from a man's point of view. I often think how cool it is that I have almost nothing in common with the main charactor and yet I completly sink into the story every time. [...]

    7. Excellent book! While still falling into the 'cozy mystery' category, Loon Lake has a bite & a bit of the dark side which makes it more interesting than average. Small town America with engaging , likeable characters you can really care about. It's just that sometimes someone or two will get murdered in an appalling manner I want to read more of these! Gotta love Lew.

    8. Doc, a retired dentist, and the local sheriff (Lew Ferris--who is female, by the way) investigate 2 dead bodies. One under a pontoon party barge and one at the victim's home. They discover the murders are related. Add in bank fraud, job fairs and you've got quite a mix of clues. Fun read.

    9. Not badbut you can see the perpetrator coming a mile awayeven though the authorities can't! And I was disappointed in the amount of info apparently disseminated by the killer before being taken down. Very unlikely and unrealistic.

    10. Another interesting mystery. A young woman is found dead under a boat and a widow is found bludgeoned in her home. The manner of death connects them. Chief Lew & Doc slowly unravel what happened along with some other crimes. Worth the read.

    11. Another great book from this author. It always seems to be a good little murder mystery in Northern Wisconsin. The fishing tips are an added bonus.

    12. Party girl found under boat and a widow bludgeoned.Was the crazy wife of the couple who was doing job fairs -- and skimming the registration forms.

    13. This 8th book in this series wasn't written as well as some of the others in the series. I was a bit disappointed.

    14. I love this series! Ms. Houston's writing has become much more polished and her characters are as likable as ever!

    15. I love this because it takes me to the homeland of Northern Wisconsin. It's like I'm there when I can't be and it is a great mystery.
