Review by: Sandra Yuen MacKay on Oct. 14, 2012 :
A Hint of Murder is a collection of stories that are suspenseful and fast-paced. The author Lia Fairchild kept me guessing and her writing held my interest. The description of the characters, their behaviour and actions give each a unique flavour. Fairchild gives just enough detail to mark important facts in the scene, ending in climaxes with a twist. An enjoyable read.

Review by: Sharon Grimshaw on Jan. 03, 2012 :
There is a skill in writing a good short story. Every word has to count, and there is only a short time with which to engage the reader and make the characters come to life. Lia Fairchild is one writer that does this with charm and wit. Her characters come alive quickly, and the plot-lines race along with a pace that is just right. These three short stories are all stand alone, yet each one flows into each other - I defy anyone to read just one; you'll want to read the other two in the same sitting! This anthology also includes a teaser from Ms Fairchild's novel, In Search of Lucy, a romantic drama. I will be interested to see if she is as proficient with a full-length novel as she is with her wonderful short stories! She has also included a story from the anthology With Love - a beautifully written tale with a truly lovely twist at the end (see if you spot what's coming - I didn't!). Finally, there are six excerpts of novels from other authors to whet your appetite - a lovely touch from Ms Fairchild to promote other independent authors. All in all, a delight to read. I shall definitely be purchasing more Lia Fairchild books in future!

Review by: TEQUEDA JOHNSON on Dec. 30, 2011 :
This collection of short stories was riveting! Made me hate to stop reading once it was over. I loved the untypical killers. I love the vivid descriptions and detailed writing; it makes you feel as if you are watching a movie as opposed to reading a book. I would definitely recommend to others!

Review by: Ey Wade on Dec. 07, 2011 :
A Hint of Murder is a collection of three mysteries written by Lia Fairchild. I enjoyed pitting my wits to the author in trying to figure out the murderers. Ahh, but she is sneakie. I have read other books by the Ms. Fairchild and I like her style of writing.Being an author myself I was tickled with the the plot of 'The Writer'. I like murder mysteries and wasn't disappointed with either of the stories in the anthology. They were well paced, not too gory, and very entertaining. Especially the strange the reasons people choose to kill someone. Loved them all.
