I didn’t get into mysteries until my late teens through Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie. In my early 20s, I was ready to check out some more current authors and went on a search. Carolyn Hart’s Death On Demand series was one of the first to catch my eye–the setting of a mystery bookstore sounded wonderful–and it was. Now all these many years later her 23rd book in the series, and her 50th published book, Dead, White and Blue, is out!

Originally published in the year 2000, this reprint showcases the talent of the award-winning author of nearly fifty mysteries. Living in San Francisco in the 1980s, twenty-seven year old anthropologist Ellen Christie is living a perfectly predictable, perfectly comfortable life. She has a reliable boyfriend who always arrives on their set dates for dinner, is attractive, and is completely predictable.

For the last several years I’ve spent most of my time reading only books I had to review and so I’ve lost track of some of my early favorite mystery authors and series. One of those authors is Carolyn Hart and recently I had the chance to read my first Death On Demand book by Carolyn Hart in many years and they are just as wonderful as I remembered!
