The last novel that I read by the Rooses, The Blonde Died Dancing , was a cross between a screwball comedy and a murder mystery, and I loved it This book, written very much later in the Rooses career, is very differentfor the most part.Although I d thought The Blonde Died Dancing was my introduction to the Rooses, I realized as I read Murder on Martha s Vineyard that I d been here before a very, very long time ago I didn t remember the novel as a whole, or even my reading it, but The last novel that I read by the Rooses, The Blonde Died Dancing , was a cross between a screwball comedy and a murder mystery, and I loved it This book, written very much later in the Rooses career, is very differentfor the most part.Although I d thought The Blonde Died Dancing was my introduction to the Rooses, I realized as I read Murder on Martha s Vineyard that I d been here before a very, very long time ago I didn t remember the novel as a whole, or even my reading it, but some of the key scenes, I discovered, had planted themselves firmly at the back of my mind For example, while I didn t recall the identity of the bad guy it s revealed very early on , although I had my suspicions, I did recollect with great clarity the scene in which the bad guy abducts Nancy Similarly, there s the scene wherebut no I shouldn t give too much away.A few years ago, Martha s Vineyard native Nancy Barrow s husband was murdered Although all the evidence pointed to her as the killer and everyone, even her friends, assumed that she d done it, the jury acquitted her on hearing that her dead husband was an habitual wife beater She left the island under a pall of accusation.But now she s back, and with a new husband Also, she has employed a PI, Tim O Hara, to work undercover to try to find the real killer so that her own name can be cleared once and for all But the real killer wants to see Nancy dead, too, and kidnaps her with the intention of claiming a whopping ransom and then murdering her.There are complications.Where I d expected a farcical detection, instead I found myself reading a genteel form of suspense novel there s definitely suspense, but it s couched so lightly that several times I found that, yes, I was on the edge of my seat, but had no clear idea of how I d got there Alongside this, the Rooses quite openly play with the plot, and hence with the reader Time and time again, circumstances lead to a point where it seems inescapable that the truth of events will be revealed, but at the very last moment some slight, silly, trivial quirk of chance intervenes and, while we know that Character A was just about to give Character B the crucial piece of seemingly irrelevant info that would make the whole picture click into place, obviously the two characters themselves don t I could imagine some readers would find this habit irritating But, as for me, it made me grin in appreciation Interspersed with this there are a number of scenes with the same loopy humor as in The Blonde Died Dancing, as if the vintage Kelley Roos had sat down every now and then at the typewriter to produce a few pages to add to the pile before surrendering the chair to the later version Again, I liked this, but it did add to the general impression that the book had been rather thrown together in a hurry.And that impression is pretty strong Leaving aside the mechanical stuff like the truly rotten proofreading not just all the typos in one place a window goes from oval to rectangular within the space of ten lines , there are places where to call the writing perfunctory would be to grossly exaggerate its sprawl Unfortunately, the grand climax finale or what should have been the grand climax finale is like this it s about five or ten pages too short, so that, just as your pulse is about to start reflexively pounding, you realize it s too late, that you ve run slap bang into THE END And that really is the end there s no wind down section where you see the characters responding to what they ve been through.We could albeit with very great difficulty look upon this comprehensively rushed ending as a welcome refusal to drag things out, but there s a similar instance earlier and it s another incident I remembered from my dim and distant previous reading If you decide that one of your novel s central characters, a character in whom readers have invested a lot and come to like a lot, is going to get bumped off late in the game, you need to give this shocking episode a biteffort than And so Character C s life came to an end I stared at the page, unable to believe that this was all the obituary, so to speak, that the character was going to get Okay, so there was a short para about the dumping of the body, but otherwise that s yer lot For the next chapter and a half I assumed there must be some cunning twist on the way, that the character would still be alive, but nope I still can t quite believe that the Walker editor let the Rooses get away with it didn t send an angry demand for a few extra pages here and in the finale.So, what do we have overall This is a very entertaining melange, and I think the Rooses would have gotten away with it being so discombobulated had it not been for the couple of places I ve mentioned where it seems as if they just couldn t be bothered that one of those places was the ending only made matters worse That said, I enjoyed probably 188 of the 193 pages another stinker page was where the murderer explained the underpinning of the plot the little scene was quite direly fumbled , which I thought was a pretty reasonable return on my investment Even so, it s because of The Blonde Died Dancing that I ll continue reading books by the Rooses, not because of this one After being acquitted for the murder of her husband, Nancy comes back to the island with a new husband in tow But someone is watching her, plotting revenge and her demise The writing and the plot is pretty straightforward There are no twists whatsoever although I keep expecting one A lot of characters are introduced only to keep getting interrupted as soon as they were about to reveal small details which would have helped in identifying the abductor, which is pretty irritating And that endi After being acquitted for the murder of her husband, Nancy comes back to the island with a new husband in tow But someone is watching

followed the same formula as the others woman in distress, kidnapped however, this book has two twists First the plot is much darker than previous books Some of the humor is gone, but the tension is ratcheted up The second is the inclusion of a mystery in the book that of who really killed the abusive husband. Murder on Martha s Vineyard by Kelley RoosEnjoyed this book because of the locations that I am familiar with.Lot of characters but they fall into place Good story of a community that helps one another and pays attention to habits of their friends.I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD Braille Audio Reading Device.
