What the reviewers are saying about the Amelia Moore Detective Series and Her Lost Love

Most mysteries are a “who-done-it,” but this cozy mystery series specializes in missing persons. Amelia Moore, founder of the Moore Detective Agency, and Rick Bonito always solve their case. Her Lost Love is the fifth mystery in the Amelia Moore Detective Series. There is a nice blend of mystery, romance, and humor. The little sparks of romance between the two detectives simply add to the mystery of this story.

“I've read this series from the beginning and come to know and love Amelia and Rick more with each book. These are some of my favorite cozy mysteries and I know exactly what I'm getting with them--a fun, unique mystery that isn't too intense, mingled with a sweet, clean romance. I think Amelia and Rick compliment each other perfectly, both professionally and personally. Of course, since I'm a romantic at heart, I love the romantic moments in the story.” --Katie Watkins, Katies Clean Book Collection

“I love long-lost love stories,” wrote Melanie Valderrama of Mel’s Shelves. “So this one grabbed my interest right from the beginning. What I enjoy about this series is that there's always more to each case than they originally think. This case was no different. I love how their personal relationship is progressing and am excited to see what happens next. Rick is so irresistible and romantic and he steps up big time in this book. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more!”

This is a most intriguing story line and I must add this to my reading list. This sounds like clean romance at its best and surely will have a happy ending. Best wishes, as always Linda and Gail thanks again for another great interview with a classy lady.

This sounds exciting, Linda! I've not thought of a woman detective series. I'm curious to know if you've had to "investigate" (ha ha) how detectives work - like their methods, police jargon, etc. Who do you go to for authentic advice? And finding a lost love -- how does one even start? Fantastic premise! :)

There have been many female crime solvers before in literature and on TV so it works as a concept. Hook the reader in the story and this may the start of yet another crime drama series !! As always, good luck in the future with it...

The research for this book was awesome. I learned so much. I think research is one of my favorite things to do. I even talked to a private investigator to find out some things.
