About Judy Fitzwater

Judy Fitzwater grew up an Air Force brat and has lived in eight states, including Maine and Hawaii. She currently resides in the Washington, D.C., area with her husband. Her first mystery, Dying to Get Published, was plucked from a stack of unsolicited manuscripts at Ballantine Books. It was nominated for an Agatha Award for Best First Mystery. The subsequent six-book series, The Jennifer Marsh Mysteries, was a delight for her to write, especially the scenes with Jennifer's quirky writers' group. Judy's newest release is Drowning in Air, an original, never-before-published suspense thriller, which she is very excited about. She has plans for more mystery, suspense, humor, and paranormal adventures to come.

This book is a hoot! Yes, the main character is zany.I found myself reading fast to see what would happen to this madcap adventurer. Anyone who has entertained fantasies of revenge will enjoy this rollicking ride.I loved this line: "The smell of whiskey wrapped around her head like a scarf." Also,I enjoyed: "...evening dark was beginning to clothe the area in its shroud." Beautiful lines, fun story.

A truly fun read! Others have said the main character is ditzy. Well, yes, that's true. Ditzy and wacky and an absolute blast to be in her head. This is a comic mystery, not a straight dark mystery. I could totally relate to the writing circle. I think I might have been a member of that one sometime back! The old ladies were hysterical. And as a writer, well...I don't think it's in our best interests to murder an agent or any other member of the publishing industry, but I've got enough rejection slips over the years (and know other writing buddies who do) that I can relate. Dying to know what Jennifer's next hare-brained scheme will be! I'll definitely be reading the rest of the series.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The plot is fanciful in places but I can't understand how anyone would fail to connect with the characters, not just Jennifer (who every aspiring author will connect with instantly) but also (most of) the supporting cast, not least that bunch of feisty old ladies and the girls of the writing circle. At places, this had me laughing out loud.

At ten percent this story was going nowhere so I went somewhere else. The writing is okay but I found nothing intriguing about the story. I didn't get attached to the main character and lost interest after listening to her whine.

I very much enjoyed this book and will purchase subsequent ones, of which there are quite a few. The story drew me in and kept me turning pages long after my bedtime!
