Reviews - What do customers think about Weeping: A Fritillary Quilter Mystery (Fritillary Quilter Mysteries)?
Reuben knows her stuff Jun 17, 2006
Shelly Reuben brings years of experience as a fire investigator to this book. She does a great job weaving the procedural details of an arson case into the story and keeping both moving along at a nice pace. I'd love to see more of Fritillary!
Weeping: A Fritillary Quilter Mystery May 25, 2004
A thoroughly fulfilling debut by a writer with wit and imagination. The characters are colorfully and fully drawn. The vantage point of the fire inspector is totally fresh. I look forward to more Fritillary Quilter adventures. Bravo!!
Weeping May 19, 2004
This was one of the most enjoyable mysteries I've read in a long, long time. Reuben's character, Tillary, was most engaging and I had to laugh so many times at this author's witty writing, and wry humor. Especially when describing her character's feelings and thoughts. I found the fire investigation details fascinating, as well, and it was the treat at the end of my day to sit down with "Weeping" and savor a good old-fashioned mystery!!! Looking forward to the next one . . .
Weeping Mar 26, 2004
One bit of advice given to people who aspire to become an author, is to write what you know about. The recently published ?Weeping?, a novel of murder by arson, is an outstanding example of this advice. Shelly Reuben is an experienced fire investigator and her expertise is dramatically displayed throughout the book. If a well known crime author became a best selling crime writer because of her descriptive autopsies, Reuben should soon be a best selling author for authentic arson cases. For example, the reader learns that even the way a building is constructed may affect the behavior of a fire. Equally interesting was her clear presentation of the related area of litigation, particularly that of product liability.Reuben?s characters are appealing, very human; thus believable. Tilly is a young, eager, enthusiastic, intuitive and a bit romantic, pron to hero worship. Ike, on the other hand is older, rational, deliberate, sagacious and although tough in spirit, capable of kindness to the weak and innocent. An unlikely pair, they nevertheless compliment each other; together, they provide for a wide range of views, much to the enjoyment of the reader and the advancement of the story. An author (Thomas Wolfe?) once said there is no such thing as pure fiction. Like her knowledge of fires it can be assumed that Reuben?s characters are incarnated from her experience of real people. May they long endure in her novels
A First for Fritillary Mar 17, 2004
Who can resist the allure of darling Fritillary Quilter as she narrates her first investigation with veteran arson expert Ike Blessing, handsome, somber and unattached? Fritillary metamorphosizes from a rooky photographer to a full-fledged claims investigator under the tutelage of a host of lovable characters. Eager to please, bright as a star, and bursting with energy, Fritillary wins our heart with her spunk, humor and vulnerability. If you believe in fairies, if you believe in truth, if you believe in happy endings, you won't want to miss this suspenseful novel that defies categorization. It is a mystery; it is a love story, it is a fire investigator's primer. This is Shelly Reuben's best. You will finish this book with the words. I want more. When is the next Fritillary Quilter novel coming out!
