Show Me Five Saturday: Killer Summer by Ridley Pearson

Alipet813 at That's a Novel Idea has started a new MEME called Show Me Five Saturday. This meme will give each blogger an opportunity to give a brief description of a book they have read or reviewed during the week. It will work like this: Each Saturday you will post the answer to these questions. The number indicates the number of answers you will provide.

1.Book you read and/or reviewed this week:

Killer Summer by Ridley Pearson

2. Words that describe the book:

Thriller, police procedural

3. Settings where it took place or characters you met :

Sun Valley, Idaho, Sheriff Walt Fleming; devoted uncle to fatherless teen Kevin who inadvertently gets caught up in a professional heist, Teddy Sumner; widower movie producer father who is in town to attend historic and valuable wine auction

4. Things you liked and/or disliked about it:

Tightly crafted plot with twists and turns that kept me entralled to the end, very believable relationships between the characters, Summer Sumner; spoiled teen who gets more than she bargained for when she runs away from a weekend with her father, historic wine info and method of verification lent authenticity to plot

Stars or less for your rating?



  1. And a 5 star rating! Sounds like a good read, Kaye.

  2. I love the concise nature of the Show Me Five Saturday! I may have to join :)

    And...once have introduced me to another mystery that I will have to check out.

  3. I like the format too!

    I love Ridley Pearson, but this one was my least favorite. I did read, however, that he has decided to make the sheriff into a regular in a new series.

  4. I really like this meme and did it a couple of times now. It pretty well tells me everything I need to know about a book before reading it. Thanks for your encouraging comments. It's good to be back, I always miss favourite readers like you.

  5. This sounds like a good one....5 stars!

    I have an award for you at my blog:

  6. Tightly crafted plot line makes me want to read this one plus the fact that you gave it a 5!!!

  7. What a neat meme idea. I like that you can get a real quick overview on a book from it. I might have to check this out and try it sometime.

  8. Hope you enjoyed Killer Summer? I have not read one of Pearson's books in a while, but I did enjoy the last one.
