This kinda fizzled instead of popped for me, but it was fun. Strange happenings occur in a Victorian wreck of a mansion isolated on an island accessible by a makeshift ferry only, and the ferry's engine breaks down in the middle of a terrible thunder and lightening wind storm, while a murderer is stalking our favorite detective Sharon McCone and her clients, one of whom is her counterculture sister and her three young children. The sister and her adult business partners want to open a fancy Bed [...]

This is a comforting series, not too demanding, predictable, yet still interesting and not stupid. Sharon McCone, the PI, is a strong silent (ish) woman like Kinsey Milhone. This entry is a bit scary and pretty suspenseful. Sharon is summoned to an island home that her sister and friends are converting to a B&B. In the midst of a dangerous storm who is trying to scare them off the island, and why?

This one was kind of like those episodes of Scooby Doo that had a special guest star, except instead of Meadowlark Lemon or Phyllis Diller showing up to help the Scooby gang, it's Sharon McCone who's dropping in at the haunted mansion."And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for that meddling P.I.!"

Wow! This book was a real thriller to me! Being on an island during a horrible storm, with a murderer on the island as well was so intense! There are actually a couple of stories going on in the book but Muller keeps the action going until the very end of the novel! I was stumped by all that was happening on this island. I will now have to read some more of Marcia Muller's books.

I usually enjoy this series, but I found this one to be very frustrating. Far much time spent trying to build suspense when really the storyline was to weak to support it. I have renamed this book Eye of the storm in a tea cup. I will read the next in the series and just hope this was a once off.

"Eye of the Storm" could almost be one of those Agatha Christie atmospheric brain teasers: Twelve people (ten, if you leave out the two youngest children) are isolated "Ten Little Indians" style in an old mansion on an island in the Sacramento Delta. There's an ancient family curse, a series of sinister and unexplained events, and a powerful storm that cuts off the electricity and all communication with the outside world. The rest of this review includes spoilers. You have been warned.But Marcia [...]

I liked this newest McCone novel quite a bit.One of the most interesting things is that Muller really moved out of the series' comfort zone. This one was pratically a Gothic horror. It was complete with haunted house (an old mansion on the delta), a disaster keeping everyone inside (the nominal storm), and an old family mystery. I thought it was quite well done.I'm also struck by how much trying-to-figure-out-a-major-life-change is a trope in these mystery series. Spenser had it when Susan aband [...]

Sharon is off to work on a case offered up by her younger sister Patsy, who has sold off her commune/farm and is now part owner of a Bed & Breakfast starting up on an island off the California Delta area. Patsy is concerned as there's been some weird happenings at the B&B, as though someone does not want it to succeed--spooky hauntings, equipment sabotaged, that kind of thing. So she enlists her big sister the PI to help her, and Sharon begs off on a long weekend from her job at All Soul [...]

I enjoy the Sharon McCone stories. Thought I would go back to one of the earlier ones. Here her sister Patsy has asked for help (hey! My sister used to go by Patsy). She and some friends are going into business together - boatel. I guess you pull up in your boat and stay in a mansion. Don't think I've heard of this, either because I don't own a boat or they don't have them on Lake Michigan. Anyway, there are strange occurrences on Appleby Island and Patsy is freaked and it is also freaking her k [...]

Marcia Muller wrote the first series of female private detective novels. I love her main character, Sharon McCone. I have been reading this series for many years and was excited to find one that I hadn't read before. It's always interesting to go back and read an earlier book in a series where you have read later ones. For instance, the family dynamics are fascinating. I particularly enjoyed Sharon's relationship with her nephew, Andrew. It was very difficult to guess who was responsible for the [...]

Sharon's sister is trying to start a luxury hotel in the Sacramento delta, but someone is sabotaging it. The atmospheric environment upstages every person on the island, even the white-knuckled historical characters. I used to live not far from here, so this meant even more to me than the exciting story ordinarily would have.

This is an early Sharon McCone book. I thought the plot was kind of contrived. I loved the setting though. I didn't realize there was a delta of the Sacramento River. Very interesting area of California.
