Two Heads Are Deader Than One

"Chava, the mother, is a hoot and Franklin is about as loyal and intelligent as a big dog can be. Chance, the now maybe lover, is attractive and the mystery is indeed mysterious pretty much up until the end."

"Two Heads Are Deader Than One (An Eddie Shoes Mystery) by Elena Hartwell is an engaging mystery that will keep you stumped to the very end. This novel had many twists and turns so that I was kept guessing all the way to the surprise ending.

"Narrator Moira Driscoll conveys cynicism and curiosity as the voice of Eddie Shoes, a private investigator who finds herself the prime suspect in her own case. Driscoll's resonant voice and direct tone are reminiscent of noir fictionwhich is perfect for a mystery that unfolds when Shoes discovers a dead body and a friend from high school asks for help identifying her stalker."

"This was a great mystery from the get go, packed full of interesting characters. Eddie and her mom make a great team and for once the first person narrative, usually a turn off for me, kept the story moving on a steady burn."

One Dead, Two to Go

"ONE DEAD TWO TO GO is a well-written fast-paced story that kept me fully engaged from beginning to end. It's one of those stories where you get to the end of a chapter and think, "Okay, just a few more pages." And the next thing you know, you've read three more chapters."

"Hartwell has created quite a winner in the unique and clever Eddie Shoes, and this first case features not only a twisting, turning, fast-paced plot, but also a number of nuanced, quirky relationships, making for a story that is fun and increasingly absorbing, especially as readers learn more about this headstrong heroine’s past."

"An original, well written gum-shoe, readers will find an easy ebb and flow of sequences with just enough mystery to keep them guessing. From their strained past to their bumbling investigation skills, this quirky combination of a mother-daughter reunion turned crime-fighting duo will captivate readers."
