Light, entertaining read

I was a little surprised to see the low-star ratings on Jackie Chance's books. Granted, they are not literary genius, but sometimes you just want a little fun in your life. I have taken couple sick days, and this book has gotten me through a nasty flu. I don't really care so much about the mechanics of the game like the reviewer who is giving Ms. Chance (assuming the author is a woman) nasty reviews on all three of her books. These are not non-fiction. I just thought it was a fun read, and appropriate for its genre.

Poker, anyone?

Belinda Cooley is having the worst day of her life - she thinks. She caught her fiancé/boss with the 20 something assistant that afternoon, right after her 40th birthday. In her mind, she's now single, unemployed, and over-the-hill. When her twin brother Ben stops by, he is oblivious to her distress in his desire to convince her to accompany him to Las Vegas. Bee and Ben are complete opposites - Bee is OCD, straight-laced, and conventional whereas Ben lives for the moment and enjoys the unpredictable. So when Bee hears of Ben's plans to attend a huge poker tournament, she decides that she will have to go if for no other reason than to monitor her brother's growing gambling addiction. She doesn't realize how dangerous the cards really are...

Ante Up!

"Death on the Flop" combines a great mystery read with a poker manual. The poker instruction does not get in the way of the action; it is interwoven effectively as part of the story. A high stakes poker tournament is the setting for this well-written mystery. The penalty for losing is a descent into the grisly world of kidnapping and snuff films. The attractive heroine Bee Cooley, aided by hunk Frank Gilbert,learns, along with this reader, how to play Texas Hold Em while solving the disappearance of her brother. I look forward to more Bee Cooley adventures, not just in Las Vegas but in a wide variety of exciting gaming spots. Men and and women alike can enjoy these books!
