      I was very disappointed I really wanted to like this book but I just couldn t When Morgan stumbles across a dead body in the shadowy depths of Sutton Woods, her stability is knocked askew Jason, the ranger who comes to her aid, provides a steady rock of support The death seems at first an accident, but Morgan knows in her heart that a delicate strut of life has fallen out of balance To me, this describes a mystery resulting from a death and has a potential love interest in the form of a Ranger n [...]

      The writing in this book is very good but I had several reservations about other issues The plot, which centered around old secrets, four young men and a young girl is a little overdone Peter Straub s Ghost Story for example The main reason everyone regrets the girl s death is that she would have undoubtedly been the greatest actress in history, inspired millions and changed lives and yet we are given no basis for that claim The info dumps and lectures on nature, animal rights, yoga, eating, etc [...]

      For the most part, this is a really pleasant book I like the author s style in general, and I ve enjoyed several of her medieval romances.This novel set in modern day rural Massachusetts, apparently in the author s current home town It s written in first person, and the narrator is a woman who works from home in the computer industry, who seems rather reserved with a veneer of calm Or maybe just socially awkward but still calm inside, or trying to tell herself she s calm She hits it off with the [...]

      A mystery srory taking place in Sutton Morgan and John discover the body of John in the woods Authorities believe it to be a hunting accident but the two protagonists think something is wrong with it So Morgan starts poking in the story with the idea of finishing the biography John was writing And then the problems start The story was captivating It is built up nicely most of the way The first step is to narrow the biography to a particular moment in John s life, but one far far in the past Coul [...]

      When you happen to be a fan of Agatha Christie then you end up comparing every murder mystery whodunit to her works Same was the case with me when I started reading Aspen Allegations The story revolves around the protagonist Morgan in the town of Sutton and her attempts to unravel the mystery surrounding a death in the woods In between you have budding romance between the protagonist and the Park ranger and a mystery surrounding the accidental drowning of a girl years ago in the company of her f [...]

      According to the author, Aspen Allegations was written in real time Each day s chapter was first written on the actual day the events took place Locations were visited and described as they appeared on that day Writing in real time in the manner explained by the author is probably the cause of my disappointment with the book.The chapters jumped around too much leaving me confused and at times forcing me to reread previous pages to figure out what was going on Several times I honestly thought I a [...]

      Morgan, while walking in the woods, discovers a dead man who has been shot A ranger named Jason comes to help her, and altho the death is ruled accidental, they decide to investigate a possible murder Aspen Allegations is an interesting read when Jason and Morgan begin looking back at other deaths and murders which have occured over the years.

    11. Jeannie Anderson says:

      Stopped reading it because it was boring me Good story line if the author would stick to it So much other stuff in the book describing everything that has nothing to do with the story.

      A female protagonist who is neither hard driven or antagonistic toward others Morgan is a yoga enthusiast who lives her life looking for the good in others and finds strength in the beauty of the nature surrounding her.The mystery unfolds as a romance develops between Morgan and Jason, a park ranger she met while hiking at the start of the mystery.I am very glad I won the giveaway and had the opportunity to find out about this book and to read it.

    14. Judy says:

      The descriptive language used in this book grabbed me from the beginning Even though I was in the middle of a murder mystery, there was such a wonderful sense of calm and nature in Lisa s writing The sounds of nature, the birds, the changing seasons, even Morgan s home are all vividly portrayed I will definitely be continuing on with this Sutton Mass series.

      Boy, this author certainly likes to moralise, give lessons and tell how things should be in the world I skipped over than half the book.

    20. Sandra says:

      Fast read with lots of vivid descriptions of flowers, birds, and food Made me want to visit Sutton Massachusetts The author definitely loves her home, and it shows up in her story A little romance between Morgan and Jason only adds to the intriguing mystery and makes for a enjoyable read This mystery kept me guessing all the way through the book I won my book from Giveaways.

      I received this book at no charge from a Good Reads First Reads drawing This fact in no way influenced my review.This is a delightful who dunnit romance, enhanced, I feel, from the avid and detailed descriptions Ms Shea writes much as a painter whose paintings wind up looking like photographs This style drew me into the story, feeling like I was walking through the woods or gazing at the lake taking in the scents, sights, and sounds.Morgan leads a quiet life in Sutton, Massachusetts One day, whi [...]

    26. Lfkeyes says:

      I picked up this book as it takes place in my home town of Sutton I don t usually read mystery romance books It was an easy, quick read The characters go to many local attractions so it made it a bit interesting as local to read the story If I had to give any constructive criticism I would say that I thought the main character was much older than 40 something I would have liked to read details on the main characters to make them real There wasn t much detail in regards to the romance , they b [...]

    28. Debbie West says:

      This was so boring, even the discovery of the murdered man was boring Jason, the ranger, was barely even described, yet he was suddenly a compassionate man no sparks, just a LOT of descriptive words and then I got to the yoga I don t care about yoga, will never do yoga, I don t care what the names of the poses are I finally gave up after Jason called Morgan Even her own life was boring I love nature, but I m a Christian, and I know God created the animals trees the beautiful skies But Lisa Shea [...]

    29. Cheryl Brandt says:

      This is something of a cozy mystery I wasn t sure at first I would like it as there is a slow lingering pace to this book However, as much as I chafed in the very beginning, the pace, the almost determined peacefulness lulled me into relaxing into this book and very much enjoying the sites and sounds and the mystery itself.According to the author s notes, this was written a chapter a day, and the locations described were visited that day, with the sites and sounds and seasons experienced and bro [...]

    30. Kay (Brigidsmomma) Compton says:

      I liked this one, but it was a bit too esoteric for my normal reading tastes good for a change, but I won t read the next in the series for a while yet, as they are a bit deep and too thought provoking to read one after the other I have to stop and process a bit with this kind of a book I prefer a book I can escape into without having to really think about it too much as I have lots of stuff in real life that I have to think and worry about all the time, so reading is really about escaping and [...]
