  • James
    3 stars to Leighann Dobbs's Dead Wrong, her debut novel in the Blackmoore Sisters Mystery series. I selected this book as it was a free electronic iBooks read on my Apple iPad and because I had read another debut novel in a different series by the author. It's a fun, short read, contains a direct path to the resolution and begins to drop a few hints about potential magical ways that run through the town and in the Blackmoore family. Story Four si...

    This isn't a good book. The plot is ridiculous and doesn't make sense. There is weirdness with the cat that is never explained. And insta-love. Really, I tried to like it but just didn't. The characters are ridiculous. If you have this book, I hope you got it for free. There are so many good cozies out there to read. Stay away from this one. The best thing I can say about it was it was short.P.S. They aren't witches, and this isn't paranormal. Ag...

    For some reason (perhaps the cover) I thought this was going to be a book about witches. It's not really and to be honest it's not all that much of a fantasy book despite being shelved as fantasy. It's not bad. A cute cozy mystery about a group of sisters, one of whom has been accused of a murder by the corrupt chief of police. It mostly works but really needs a single protagonist. This book occasionally switched from one sister to the other whic...

    I really enjoyed this quick read of a book. A sort of mystery with a bit of romance & spookiness thrown in via the cat Belladonna. The book isn't any great literary feat, but it's fair to say it hasn't been written with that in mind. Just a well written, thoroughly enjoyable read to while away a few hours. I look forward to reading more books in the series.

    Rated 3.5This was a good start to the Blackmore Sisters series. I can't wait to see what's going to happen next and did Morgan really see Luke? The mystery continues. I wonder what's going to happen next with the sisters and will they find out what's really going on with Overton and why does he have such a hard for the sisters?

    Dead Wrong was a freebie Kindle download that has been sitting on my Kindle for a while. It seemed very short, not sure of the pages but it was a super fast read. The story centers around a set of sisters who run a few “new agey” style businesses – a natural remedies shop, a yoga studio, and a crystal/jewelry shop. The sisters live together in the family home and are barely scraping by when one of them is accused of murder. They band togeth...

    I'm almost embarrassed to say I read this absurd book, but it was free on iBooks, and I had a lot of waiting around to do, with nothing but my phone for entertainment. So I was sort of trapped and desperate. Where do I start? No clue about police procedure? Characters that do and say stupid things? More focus on boring people's inane thoughts than the facts of the mystery? All wrapped up in copy that appears never to have met an editor. I used to...
  • Kim Griffin
    I went into this book not expecting much. I thought I would enjoy it, but I wasn’t expecting anything spectacular. I just wanted a light, fun, cozy mystery. Unfortunately, my expectations were too high. I almost DNF’ed Dead Wrong, but in the end, I decided to stick it out. The plot was just way too simplistic. The character’s all had developed physical characteristics, but otherwise, all of the Blackmoore sisters seemed interchangeable. Cha...
  • Thom Swennes
    A one word description of this story would be vanilla. Set in the small township of Noquitt, Maine, it is the story of four sisters and a double homicide. The Blackmoore sisters, Morgan, Fiona, Celeste and Jolene (listed from oldest to youngest) are happy in this community that their family had been part of for untold generations. Morgan and Fiona shared a shop in the village called “Sticks and Stones”, a very appropriate name for their lines...
  • Laura
    I was very disappointed with this book. I enjoyed this author's book "Ghostly Paws", but this one fell far below the bar set by that one. It was very straightforward, no twists, nothing surprising at all. The first time the character who "done it" was introduced, I knew it had to be him/her. I could even tell you how and why. Maybe I've read too many mysteries, but I found it flat and boring. Throw in the many grammatical errors (misuse of apostr...
  • Sandra Bašić
    Finally, I ripped off Gillian Larkin's novels and gave a chance to another cozy story. I chose Leighann and her Blackmoore sisters and I liked it: it was funny, romantic and mysterious. It wasn't boring at all so I'm looking forward to other Leighann's novels.
  • Karen
    I appreciate a clean read.
  • Tari
    This was a really fun and quick read! I've had this on my Kindle for a long time now and was happy to get an excuse to finally read it, excuse being another online book club discussion for this weekend. The four Blackmoore Sisters lived in Noquitt, Maine in a huge old mansion. Celeste worked at a yoga studio in town, Jolene had recently graduated and was still deciding what she wanted to do (and she did think of something as the story ended). Fio...

    This book wasn't anything special to me but it was a nice lite read.
  • NicoleG
    Fun first in series!!
  • Ted Tayler
    "Nothing wrong at all; it's dead right"I see this is the start of a series; well, it was pretty impressive stuff. All four sisters had a role to play. There was a murder early on and the local police chief was desperate to pin it on Morgan Blackmore. With the evidence stacking up against her it was left to her, her sisters, a few true friends, and a new hunky policeman to find the true killer. Not much of a series if we see one of the main charac...
  • Erin Wolak
    This was definitely one of those books that you kind of just read to get it off your tablet, or if you're waiting for a book you've requested from the library to get in. The whole thing was extremely predictable and boring. In a matter of hours I was able to finish this book. Not because it was interesting but because it was that easy to read. There was no wanting to prolong the ending because you want to savor every second, there was

  • Kristine (A Cozy Booknook)
    This is the first in a new series and I can't wait to read the others! The story is well developed with the author building the foundation for the other books in the series. The characters are well developed and written. I enjoyed the family cats' antics. I would recommend this book.
  • JoLene
    2.5 starsThis is a cozy mystery about a family of sisters, struggling with coming up with money to pay their taxes. They live in a huge house that has been in the family for generations and 2 of the sisters own a new-age shop. Unfortunately, one of the sisters is accused of murder. The sisters must band together since the chief of police doesn't seem interested in finding other suspects. Luckily a new transfer to town, a former detective from Bos...
  • Joann Herley
    Dead Wrong was a fun short and sweet read. There is a murder, a very odd cat, a shady police chief, a handsome police investigator, and four sisters willing to help solve the crime. It was a little predictable but still enjoyable.
  • Teri Peterson
    A fun quick read (two hours, maybe?). Perfect weekend brain candy. Romance was predictable but the mystery was not. Minimal danger, a nice cozy.
  • Susan Ferguson
    A nice little series of 4 sisters who discover they have unsual powers. There mother died several years back and they live together in the family home which has many secrets in the attic and basement. Fiona, with bright red hair, is the focus of this book. Her next sister Morgan, with straight black hair, discovers a body. The shiftless, corrupt sheriff has decided that Morgan must be the killer - whether he has another reason or because he is to...

    I have been reading Dobbs' Lexy Baker series, and found this title, and, since I liked the other series so well, I thought I would give this one a try also! I really enjoyed reading the first in the Blackmoore Sisters series, and I look forward to reading the rest! As I have mentioned in a previous review, the author has a gift for dialogue. I love how each of her characters has different "voices," and that their unique personalities shine throug...

    This was really cute and fun. The cover of this book is perhaps what makes you think it is supernatural. It's really not, the sisters just have interests in things like herbs, crystals and yoga. I liked picking up the clues, piecing them together, and I also love the sister dynamic. Morgan, Fiona, Celeste and Jolene are how I would want to be if I had sisters.The only reason why I'm giving this 3 stars instead of more is because it was extremely ...
  • Melanie
    A fast fun read with an easy to guess plot. It lost a star for me by leaving too many lose ends and even worse a corrupt policeman on the loose. The reader isn't told the details surrounding the death of the girls' mother four years previously beyond her jumping off the cliffs. It may come to light in another book in the series. We aren't shown if the person in town is who people think they have seen. We also don't see if Fiona's relationship wor...
  • Allison
    Love the sisters getting together to protect one of their own. The cat was great, I'm thinking it may be Mom come back to watch over her girls? Anyway, a little mystery, a little romance, a little mysticism equals a fun, cozy mystery. I'll read more in this series.
  • Sz Davis
    Pretty light weight book and I started to put it down a couple times. Some fun dialog tho and some crazy twists
  • Kellie Taylor
    Easy read - its easy to pick the ending from about 4 pages in but its light reading for when you don't want anything too complicated or too many characters.
