  • Laura

    Actually stopped reading halfway through. It got too boring and basic.

    My Review:Dead Lil' Hustler by Victoria Houston (A Loon Lake Mystery #14)4 STARSI believe this is book #14 in the series. I have only read three of them so far. They have lots of fishing in the books. Interesting characters that I like and want to know more about. Clean read, full of drama, some action and humor. Police Chief Lewellyn Ferris is one of the main characters. She is single and fly fisherman. Her close friend is Doc Osborne.Doc Osborne is a retired Dentist. He is a widower. He also h [...]

    4 stars, review to come:)I really enjoyed this book. I had no idea it is 13th in the series but I had no problem following the story lines. The book is simple, in a good old fashioned way, where family and community matter. This is a low key and sometimes humorous read with no unnecessary violence or sex. What originally led me to the book was the title, it intrigued me, I had no idea what it meant until about halfway through when I just had to chuckle:)There are a few story lines going on here, [...]

    From the cover: It's mid-July in Loon Lake, and Police Chief Lewellyn Ferris has her hands full with the discovery of the skeletal remains of a missing bank executive and the murder of graduate student. To complicate matters, both victims were discovered on a hidden river deep in the national forest--a place that just so happens to be a dangerous wolf rendezvous site. Lew recruits her close friend and fellow fly fisherman, retired dentist "Doc" Osborne, for his forensic and interrogation skills. [...]


  • Alan Mills

    Nice murder mystery from small town Wisconsin. Apparently, this is the most recent in a long series.but it is the only one I've read (courtesy copy from publisher, TyrusBooks TYVM), so I can't comment on how it fits into the series.As a stand alone, it's great. The key murder happens in the first couple of pages. So we start off with a bang. The author then steps back and establishes the "good guy" characters: Chief of Police, a competent woman who struggles at times for respect in a male domina [...]


  • Jim

    I usually enjoy Victoria Houston's Loon Lake series. This book, however, was not anything like her best. It was mildly entertaining, but I found the plot clunkily put together, and the characters seemed to just shuffle through events. Sometimes, when characters seemed confused by things that were obvious, it felt like they'd lost IQ points since the last book. There was also some stuff about wolves as dangerous killers that feeds into a barely believable plot device. [Wolves are very dangerous t [...]


  • Patti

    It is the same story as usual, but with less character development. And where is the editor? In an earlier book we were told in detail several times that Doc had no interest whatsoever in tying flys. Now in this book we are told that he has a room all set up for this hobby, and that he and Lew spend many evenings sharing this hobby. Really?


  • Pat

    Enjoyable story, mostly because I hail from Wisconsin and have a love for northern Wisconsin where the Loon Lake stories take place. I like the way Victoria Houston is able to convey the language and cultural subtleties of "up-north" Wisconsin. The characters are endearing, especially Ray. The Loon Lake series of stories are very easy, fast reading.


  • Dianne

    I have enjoyed these books. I knew nothing about fly fishing. I've never been to Wisconsin. But there is such good description of the area that I feel like I've been there now. I even enjoyed reading about the fishing. I like the assortment of characters who inhabit these books. I hate that I'm almost at the end of this series.


  • Nancy Hansen

    This is the 14th book in the Loon Lake Mystery Series written by Victoria Houston. I am a biased reader because Victoria and I live in the same town and I see her routinely at one of our local grocery stores. I have read all but the last in the series and have enjoyed them all. Quick reads with murder, criminals, great characters, and a great up north feel.


  • Kimberly

    I really enjoy this series for the setting not the mysteries themselves. I could care less about fly fishing myself, but something about the characters, the strong female fly fishing chief of police and 'Doc' the retired dentist with his crazy fly fishing guide neighbor and the rural setting keeps me hooked.


  • Glenda

  • Janet Gasser

  • Veronica Howard

    I love all Victoria Houston books.


  • Elizabeth

    Love this book. I just read the latest of Houston's books. Now have to go back and read the rest


  • Robin Halvorson

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book as I have enjoyed the entire series. My only complaint is that it will be a year before the next one comes out.


  • ☺Trish

    Lots about "tenkara", a Japanese-style of fly fishing.
