    Vigilantism at its scariest

    Room for Doubt by Nancy Cole Silverman is the 4th Carol Childs Mystery in the series but the first one I read. I received a copy from Henery Press and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. From Goodreads: "When radio reporter Carol Childs is called to a crime scene in the Hollywood Hills at five thirty in the morning, she's convinced it must be a publicity stunt to promote a new movie. That is, until she sees the body hanging from the center of the Hollywood sign. The police are quick to rule it a suicide, but something doesn't add up for Carol. Particularly after a mysterious caller named Mustang Sally confesses to the murder on the air and threatens to kill again. With the help of an incorrigible PI, her best friend, and a kooky psychic, Carol is drawn into the world of contract killers and women scorned. As she races to find the real killer, she finds herself faced with a decision that will challenge everything she thought she knew." The story moves along well and all plot points are wrapped up in the end. The vigilante group of abused women is especially interesting - and scary. Demonstrates how vigilantism and standing up for yourself can get out of hand and lead to abuses and secrets you will do anything to protect. Mustang Sally is a key player in the story and has a lot more depth than you see on the surface. Garhardt "Chase" Chasen, the "incorrigible PI," is annoying, to say the least. But his motives and agenda are probably worthy, and you can see there is some chemistry percolating between him and Carol. Something to watch for in future books? Carol is a strong and determined woman and is surrounded by a very interesting cast of characters. I couldn't quite figure Carol or her job out, though. She seems to be good at her job but isn't that well-treated at the radio station and she seems to be unsure of herself at times and goes with the flow. Chase seems way too involved with decisions regarding her assignments. She floats in and out of a rather run-of-the-mill home life and extreme danger, going with the flow at times and throwing caution to the wind at others. If this is considered a cozy read then that works because the protagonist always jumps into situations without thinking, but the subject matter of this story is very serious so it seems a little off. And perhaps this is one of those series where you need to start at the beginning to get a better feel for the main character. Once it gets going the action is non-stop. There are a lot of players with a lot of unsuspected ties to each other, and things are nicely wrapped up at the end. This was an enjoyable read. Thanks to Henery Press, NetGalley and Nancy Cole Silverman for providing it.

    Murder Hollywood Style

    This is the fourth book in the Carol Child Mystery series but Room for Doubt can be read as a stand alone. Murders seem to be connected according to Private Investigator Gerhardt Chasen. Chase seems to be a literary detective similar to TV Kojak who used lollipops as a substitute for smoking. Carol works as a radio personality investigator and pairs up with Chase to compare notes on recent crimes. Plot drags along especially when the group behind these murders is revealed early on in the book. Even the one sided romantic attraction between Chase and Carol is slow moving. "A copy of this book was supplied by Henry Press via Netgalley with no requirement for a review. Above review is my honest opinion."

    Carol's changes make this easy to stand alone

    Steady plot and interesting characters made this a book I couldn't put down. Carol's life has had major changes; a mutual break-up with Eric, the radio station is now news & sports format KNST, her new boss is Tyler Hunt who is 21 to Carol's 40. With the return of Misty Dawn, hippie psychic to the stars, Carol has a house guest and a disturbing listener Mustang Sally to Carol's broadcast show. Carol stumbles upon a group who help abused women in a permanent way. The dilemma is what to do about them. This is book 4 in the series but could be read as a stand-alone because of all of the changes in Carol Child's life. I volunteered to read an ARC of this book from Henery Press through Net Galley.
