    I got this book because it was free, sorry, I have to be honest. Technically the writing is very good. But, a couple of weeks after I finished it, the only thing I can remember is the stereotypically flaming gay guy, who was a minor character. None of the facts about the mystery, none of the action, all blank. I didn't really ever connect to the central character in any way, she seemed nice enough, but boring. I am sure some people will connect to the character and enjoy it, I didn't. I got this book because it was free, sorry, I have to be honest. Technically the writing is very good.

    This was a fun and quick read. I've had it for a long time and finally decided to give it a go. The stalker part made it a little suspenseful in some places, but for the most part it was just a light mystery with a lot of vacation life in Florida thrown in. The fishing boat scene with the shark was kind of funny in some ways, and I did really enjoy the characters. I may read more in the series at some point, but there wasn't a lot to really compel me to continue. This was a fun and quick read. I've had it for a long time and finally decided to give it a go.

    The characters are fun, and the dialogue is good. Sunshine Hunter is a "fluffy mystery" and so not hard hitting, but the writing is good. My only complaint is that it took quite awhile for anything to happen. As the first in a series, this may be because the author was setting up a lot of backstory (I haven't read any of the other books yet). There's a lot of description, many times for things that do nothing to move the story along - I'd like to see more action, and I think the characters and w The characters are fun, and the dialogue is good.

Overall, a quick fun read.

    I've been meaning to read this for a long while and finally got around to it, and I regret the wait. I wasn't sure what to expect, especially from a mystery sort of book, but I loved it. It was a pleasant, light read, but also intense. It's the first book in a long while I stayed up to make sure I finished because I couldn't go to sleep without knowing how it ended. The tension was quite masterfully woven into this book, but it also had its fair share of humor.

The characters don’t use vulgar language. The author is not promoting a political or religious point of view. Unfortunately, the negatives outweigh those points. Some of the main characters, especially the main character and the villain, don’t appear to be very bright. Susan is more interested in her wardrobe, physical fitness and finding the right man than she is about substantial issues. Having been stung by learning of her ex-husband’s infidelity, she doesn’t want to be in that situation again. A telephone call from a woman identifying herself as her current suitor’s wife throws her into a tailspin and she learns other important information that he didn’t mention. The way she deals with that, especially the part that doesn’t have to do with the wife, needs more development. She has very few friends and the reason isn’t really explained. The villain’s actions are not believable. If he/she is trying to kill someone, why would he/she slash all the tires on a car and then leave? How is the villain able to move around so easily? The major part of the plot doesn’t begin until about half way into the book. I was ready to put the book down after a few chapters. I’m sorry I didn’t. This book was a free Kindle download.

    This book has the potential to be a charming, if fluffy, little read. Unfortunately, this self-published work would have gotten great benefit from the attentions of a good editor. It reads like a first draft. A lot of cliches, missing punctuation, super passive voice, and misused words distracted me from the story. For instance, on page 38 or 39 of the edition on my Nook, main character (you can't really call her a sleuth) Susan Hunter describes the feeling between herself and love interest Mick This book has the potential to be a charming, if fluffy, little read.

For instance, on page 38 or 39 of the edition on my Nook, main character (you can't really call her a sleuth) Susan Hunter describes the feeling between herself and love interest Mick as "palatable." Er, unless she and Mick are cannibals, the word she's looking for is PALPABLE. While the main character Susan has some innocent, childlike appeal about her, and I really liked her friend Darby, the characters would be so much more likable with more development and depth. The storyline is serviceable. I found it to have a good sense of suspense, but the ending was a bit disappointing. A few more twists and turns to the plot would have done wonders to pick this story up. I also have "Windy City Hunter" downloaded to my Nook, solely because it takes place in Chicago. I'm hoping that the writing style and characterization is taken to a higher level in that one, or I won't be giving this series any more chances.

    Sunshine Hunter tells the story of athletic and attractive Susan, who just wants to have a normal life. After some boyfriend troubles, she takes some time off with her best friend and goes to Florida for the weekend… only to be followed by a different kind of trouble over there, involving a stalker and a murder on her head. I thought Sunshine Hunter was a lovely book. Susan is sweet, and the rest of the cast is fun and colourful.

I thought Sunshine Hunter was a lovely book. Susan is sweet, and the rest of the cast is fun and colourful. At first it seemed like the story would be about how Susan deals with the issue that has arisen with her boyfriend, Mick, but slowly it became clear that that was not the case as Susan starts facing trouble wherever she goes. Friends and fun can only do so much when someone’s out there trying to kill you, and it was interesting to see how Susan dealt with it all… especially one particular incident with a shark. This is a light and fun read, and you’ll find yourself going quickly through it just to see if Susan will emerge victorious at the end. The writing is good and straightforward, and I found myself soon connecting with the characters. I will definitely be checking out the other books in the series. =]

    I struggled to finish this cozy murder mystery, despite the thought out clues and motive for the killer. I couldn’t get into the characters or most of the story, despite the first chapter holding my interest to my extent. This could be partly because I don’t read a lot of what’s known as Women’s Fiction or Chick Lit, but I also felt a lot of the story was padded out with little that advanced the characters or story.

I couldn’t get into the characters or most of the story, despite the first chapter holding my interest to my extent. This could be partly because I don’t read a lot of what’s known as Women’s Fiction or Chick Lit, but I also felt a lot of the story was padded out with little that advanced the characters or story. First off, it takes until the 1/4 mark until anything regarding a mystery to pop up. I was sorta expecting something to kick off in the first or second chapter, but before then, it revolves around Susan Hunter getting back into the dating scene with new boyfriend Mick and her day to day life in Ohio. Which isn’t bad, and was actually a bit interesting, but by the time the mystery popped up, as well as a scary situation for Susan while she’s in the Tampa Bay area, my interest in the story was already waining. It’s not until the second half that Susan really starts exploring the mystery, and while the mystery was somewhat interesting with the clues and motive and made sense, it felt like it could have been done better with more connections to the story. It doesn’t help that I couldn’t connect to any of the characters in this story and felt at best, little more than cliches we’ve seen before. Susan Hunter from the outside, seems like someone that could be an interesting character with her racquetball interest and her reaction to discovering Mick’s secret, but with the shopping habit and a lot of her character feels like she’s been done, and she doesn’t have the feel of an amateur detective either. Darby was the only other character I could really care for besides the culprit, but he didn’t feel real to me for most aspects of it. The other characters felt flat. I didn’t care what happened to them in terms of safety or love life. There was a cute message (I think) about how everyone has a bunch of different sides to each other late in the story, but I couldn’t get any of that out of this due to the poor characterization of the cast. The prose felt choppy and disjointed and it was a struggle to read a lot of it. Spelling and grammatical errors were everywhere. Information and events popped out of nowhere and I was confused more than once in terms of a sense of place and what was going on. Like in chapter two, Mick’s secret is mentioned without any lead up. The story came to a halt several times to exposit material about Susan’s past when it could have been delivered more naturally. It needed more editing. As a side note, I did like the racquetball parts. The ending wasn’t terrible, but I’m not sure if I’ll indulge in another Susan Hunter mystery.

    Amazon description says this is chick-lit with humor and mystery. An accurate description. The main character, Susan Hunter, has little connection to reality. Though her age is never given, you are given the impression she has unlimited disposable income. She holds down two jobs (one to pay for her shopping), she is naïve, a bouncy blonde(?) with high energy who plays racquet ball and can leave in a day for a vacation when she feels down.

There is a mystery, one with a plot that has potential, but is buried in between shopping, sight-seeing and other travelogue related trivia. Frequently boring and with characters that I just made no connection with, I chose to read this book as I was looking for light-hearted beach fare and that is what I got.

    I liked this book, it gives what it promises: a light read. It's fresh, it's light, it is candid and fast moving. I enjoy novels that show true friendship, generous hearts and forgiveness. The protagonist has the kind of life that is rich in many ways: good friends to share life with, to go out, to eat together and to find support on. It is also rich in action and unlucky coincidences that she always manages to escape from. She is funny, stylish and is making her best to live a life worth living f I liked this book, it gives what it promises: a light read. It's fresh, it's light, it is candid and fast moving.

    This was more chick lit than mystery. Also, I actually stopped reading at one point to check and see if either the MC or the author was an 18 year old girl. Nope, neither was supposed to be anyway. The story was fine, the idea of going to a different place each book, also interesting. But I can't say I loved the writing. Too much repetition. In 145 pages, I think Susan's pink shoelaces were mentioned at least 10 times and the Reuben sandwiches, 6-7. Doesn't leave much space for the actual story. This was more chick lit than mystery.

    Sunshine Hunter This is the first book in the Susan Hunter Mystery Books series. Maddie Colgate has set the series up well. Susan is a single lady, just recently removed from a serious relationship when she is introduced to a very likeable man (who has neglected to tell her that he is married, but getting a divorce, oh,and also has a fourteen year old son). Life happens, and the results can be dangerous, hilarious or both.

    This was a different type of mystery as it seemed more romantic lit than mystery. But i enjoyed the friendship between Susan and her best friend-who Susan learns is gay. There are slightly preposterous settings/antics of Susan falling off a boat with her sneaker clad foot in a dead shark's mouth. I became more informed on racquetball and Susan clearly enjoyed this sport. The characters were interesting though the ending could be guessed, I was caught up in the story. a bit This was a different type of mystery as it seemed more romantic lit than mystery.

    This book was given to me free from Amazon for a honest review. This book was not my cup of tea, however, I found it to be a well written, intense read with to much drinking and very descriptive scenes. If you like a modern day mystery, slightly humorous then this is the book for you. Read and enjoy.

    Maddie Cochere blends humor, mystery, and romance with a deft hand. This is only the second book of hers that I have read (Murder Under Construction being the first), but I will definitely be on the lookout for future books in both series.

    Definitely much grittier than your usual Cozy Mystery - When Susan finds out her new boyfriend is married, she takes a holiday to Florida with her male friend/neighbour. Finding out her work colleague has suddenly died and then realising they are being stalked does bode well for both action and humour. All tidied up nicely in the end. Would read another book from this Author.

    Not forme The plots are ok and quite interesting but I find her writing a little stuff and lots of passages where it sounds like she is listing off things that happened... This happened and then that and then we did this.
