Summary: Great mystery!!
Comment: Enjoyable and a quick read. This is the first I have read about Rei Shimura. Can't wait to read the others. Perfect summer book.

Summary: Breezy, bouncy mystery
Comment: This was a fun and entertaining book. Very light. Minimal violence. Sort of girly with lots of references to what people are wearing: "grand's suit, perfectly cleaned by the hotel's dry cleaner...".

But also many enjoyable and interesting references to life in Japan. I was interested to learn, for instance, that it is traditional in southern Japan for men's and women's clothes to be dried on separate clotheslines.

Probably not going to leap to the top of my favorite authors list, but certainly engaging enough that I'll read some more of her stories.

Summary: Say it isn't so...
Comment: I cheated and read the end of this book, when Hugh said it felt like the last time he and Rei would be together. I know forshadowing when I see it! But even though I was bummed by the direction the series was taking -I read on - it was that good of a mystery.
There were parts I even enjoyed - it took place mostly in Japan, which allowed for the contrast of Japanese culture with American, which Ms Massey does so well and the ending in spite of being sad, left a door open for further intrigue...Who knows Hugh may come back!

Summary: Horrible Is Excellent
Comment: Typhoon Lover did exactly what I was hoping it wouldn't do and that made it a wonderful read, even if I felt anxious the whole time for the heroine. Her own sorry actions plus the problems thrown her way made it one of the best in the series. The future is uncertain, but interesting for Rei and I'm looking forward to reading Girl in a Box. Rei is one of the best characters I've come across in reading. She's so real. She makes mistakes, she has bad judgment, brilliant insights and a propensity to get in deeper than perhaps she should, but always landing on her feet...sort of.

Summary: The Typhoon Lover
Comment: While not the best of the best, this mystery is well written, and as usual, filled with wonderful details about Japanese life. I would recommend it, with the caution that reading the previous books in the series makes it more interesting as Rei's relationships move forward in this book.
