    One thought on “Dead Copy”

    1. great storyline. Loved the story. Would have been 5 stars if it was edited well. Like the first book there were missing commas, missing periods and missing words.

    2. The story is that of obituary writer Cauley MacKinnon who is working the edges of an FBI case against an Argentinian gang making inroads into Austin, TX, that is poised for a gang war with the homegrown Syndicate. MacKinnon assists the feds in trying to protect a witness who is preparing to give testimony. In her spare time, Cauley and her dog Marlowe assist local Search & Rescue operations. In short, Cauley fakes an obituary for the testifier-to-be in an effort to keep would-be assassins at [...]

    3. Cauley MacKinnon is an obit writer hoping to move to the news side of the paper. Dead Copy goes far beyond just being a chick-lit mystery--Cauley trains a search and rescue dog, finds missing people and killers, and tries to keep the flame going with hot FBI agent Tom Logan. There's a lot of stories here and quite frankly, Frazier probably could have gotten two books out of this. But it was a good read, taking place in Austin, TX, with the Mexican mafia, good-old boy connections and Cauley's ext [...]

    4. This one has a lot of the same characters as Scoop and then some. Finally, the character of Diego is clear to me. Logan is back and her terrific Texan parents and El Patron plays a part. I must say, I miss that sexy John Fiennes fellow from the first one, bad guy or not. This one is very cute. It however, is so much like the first one, it is a bit too predictable. I found the first one to be more action packed and humorous both. Not as much happens to Cauley in this book. She is more a bystander [...]

    5. Really enjoyed this one. A balance between cozy and intense suspense. It could have used transition, even an extra line between blocks of time and the use of a comma or two would have helped but overall excellent story well worth the time. I wish she subscribed to the Smashwords pricing model. I might stretch to $5.99 for her other books but $10.00 is out of my range. I would love to read more of this series.

    6. I loved this book and finished it in record time!!!! I lived in TX for 21 years and "Dead Copy" captures the women of TX exactly. For example, a Texas woman never goes to the HEB grocery store looking bad. The book's characters are likable and interesting which makes you want to read more about them in the future. The mystery had some lovely twists and turns as the characters (and the reader)try to figure out what is going on! Happy Reading!

    7. I thought the book was great fun, but would have given it higher marks if the punctuation had been better. I had to back up to read many sentences over and over to figure out the meaning because there was no punctuation and sometimes no new paragraph where there should have been one. Maybe it was just my copy. I loved the story, though. I will read another in the series.

    8. Really enjoyed this book. Suspenseful, detailed, and at times funny. The main character Cauley was quirky, a great friend and lovable, along with her SAR companion Marlowe. Definitely would recommend.

    9. yay more Tom Logan! too bad he was in and out and always on the run! Loved how he has everyone reporting Cauley's mis-adventures! Good storyline with lots of action! Cauley's friends and family are the best!!

    10. Good read, but I found it harder to get into the sequel. It wasn't half way through that I really had to pry myself from the book.

    11. very good book. only thing i didnt likebwas the end. hope kit frazier writes another one to go along with this to see the relationship between cauley and tom logan

    12. Enjoyed this story of crazy Texas good and evil. The story had lots of threads and characters, and all came together in a believable and exciting conclusion.

    13. Good read, would like to read the sequel.Kept you guessing until the end with a twist you didn't see coming.

    14. This is the second book in the series and if you haven't read the first, the author does a good job of bringing you up to date. It gets a little long at times but well worth reading.

    15. Great read from start to finish a lot of what will happen when you fish for information that doesn't have anything to do with you. Cauley is a woman with a big heart and larger than life ears.

    16. This was definitely a fun book to read and I loved the banter between Cauley and the hot FBI agent. Can't wait for more!

    17. A quick read with likeable characters and an interesting mystery that kept me reading. Recommended if you like mysteries.

    18. Well-written, very believable mystery. Interesting characters. Well researched. Maybe just a touch long; but I don't know what I would have edited out either.
