Best Review of Smile And Be A Villain: A Dorothy Martin Investigation (a Dorothy Martin Mystery):

The characters are basically pretty one-dimensional and a bit flat By Ginny Sorry to be less than enthused but this could have used some thoughtful editing to remove so much Dorothy Martin "angst" and what is almost kvetching. She keeps metaphorically wringing her hands about various happenings and reports of the evil doings of the villain, to the point where she wants to go home with the mystery unsolved. Several times. The book could have been pages shorter and a bit livelier without jeopardizing the plot line or development of the story. The characters are basically pretty one-dimensional and a bit flat. The descriptions of scenery and the island were good but it isn't a travelogue for Alderney. I have read, and really enjoyed, other books by Mrs. Dams and feel that this was a somewhat trite and weak effort. Others are much more interesting and more developed.Sorry for the lack of enthusiasm because I would prefer to encourage, but not her best. 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful. Good with a cuppa..... By CynthiaLR I have been a fan of the Dorothy Martin series ever since I discovered it for myself. The first books were so very entertaining that I read them one after the other to catch up to the most recent at the time. Jeanne M. Dams has a way of making one care for her main characters and making them feel like friends. To me, that is what a cozy mystery should do. Top marks for that. I am always eagerly awaiting the next installment beause I truly miss 'Dorothy' between books and wonder what she is up to. This time, however, had Dorothy been in front of me, I would have had to restrain myself from shaking her and saying 'get on with it, Girl!!!!'. Not one of the best in the series, and the ending was a bit....erm, disappointing and almost like an afterthought. BUT, having said that, it was still an enjoyable day's reading and visiting with an old friend. 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. Poor Dorothy Martin mystery By G. Gauldin I really liked the Dorothy Martin books. The early books showed depicted an older woman who was able to make a life changing move and succeed. The past few books,especially this newest book, depicts a woman who is whiny, has a bad case of self-pity, and makes wild stabs in the dark. I don't know how her husband stands it. I know how I will stand it- by not wasting my money on another one. See all 14 customer reviews...
