A kidnapping, a hunt for a serial killer, and a budding romance or two. What Could Be More Fun?

C.C. Wainwright always looks forward to the annual Moms weekend, but this years’ trip takes a terrifying – and decidedly madcap – turn when a practical joke becomes deadly.

When her friend Tara, newly single and out to bag a husband, disappears after a romantic lakeside picnic, C.C. and the others team up with local detective Butch Cameron.

Their antics pose a real challenge for the sweet-hot detective as he tries to keep them out of harm’s way while he mounts a statewide manhunt for a suspected serial killer.

C.C. tries to deny the attraction she feels for Butch, but his affection for her soon becomes obvious.

For Butch, loving one of the moms means loving them all, but C.C. wonders just how far he will go to keep them all safe at The Dells.

The Moms are back for a party filled weekend in Prescott Arizona.

They hope.

But within hours of their arrival it seems their laughter filled weekend will be turned into another comically amateur investigation.

 

Have you ever been walking down a flooded street and just… tripped over a dead body?

No?

 

Well it just happened to Monique. Not to mention the fact that her brand new, very expensive wedges were ruined. And now she feels it is up to her to find out who killed the poor woman and why.

Hot and hunky detective Butch Cameron is on the case, but Monique senses Butch may be letting is personal involvement with her friend Camille, interfere with his judgment.

With one likely suspect in mind, and not much support from the moms for the idea, Monique forms an alliance with a friendly stranger. But as Monique gets closer to discovering the truth, she finds she has put herself right in the killer’s path.

 

She can only hope that Butch and her friends will find her, before it’s too late.

5 STARS FOR MAEVE TIDEWELL

"Thoroughly enjoyable read!"

~ Acigarman1 - Verified Purchase

 

If you are looking for a great suspense/thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat, this is the book for you then! I could not stop reading it. The author has a great writing style and the plot flows flawlessly. I would honestly put this book in the same category as James Patterson and Michael Connelly. It is just that good! I can't wait to see what the author comes up with next. Would love to see a second book come out of this story line :)

5 STARS FOR THE MOMS WEEKEND MYSTERIES

"Not a Nail Biter but Rather a Fun, Fun Mystery."

~Librarian

"I totally enjoyed this book. As I read I felt like the author truly enjoyed writing it too. It was just a comfortable fit for me. I found myself wishing I was vacationing with these laddies, at least in the beginning.

 

It was not a nail biter in suspense but still a great read with a touch of suspense. With some of the suspenseful situations I was reminded it was truly fictional. I found myself drawn to seeing how this whole thing would play out. A couple of times I had to really think of which character was speaking in the chapter but it didn't happen often and that just might be me. It also might be a few too many female characters for me to keep straight so maybe a glossary of who's who might help but, you can still follow along with the ladies on their adventure even if you get one mixed up with the other. I only found one typo and it didn't bother me in the least. I was glad the book was not over done with curse words and the ones that were there fit the contest of the story.

 

A touch of romance that wasn't overdone either added to the fun light side of this tale. I just found this book an enjoyable read all the way around. A book I wanted to pick back up. Would I recommend it? Yes. Would I read it again? Indeed. Since this was my first book by this author I will be looking into other books by her as well and watching or a possible sequel in the Mom's Weekend Mysteries."

"Good Suspense Read"

~M Brown

"I was not sure how much I was going to like this book while reading the first couple of chapters. This was a group of women that I felt like I could not relate to. They seemed to only care about drinking and having a good time and seemed very shallow to me. But I kept reading, and I am sure glad I did. Everything changed for me after their friend went missing. They changed from shallow women to women who had a deep love for their friend and who would do anything to bring her home safely. They all had their own personalities and used their individual abilities to help in the search. They were all strong women in their own ways and I enjoyed getting to know them better. If I ever found myself in big trouble, I would want these women on my side, watching my back. Their love for each other and commitment to each other seemed honest and true.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author has an ability to build suspense while interspersing humor to lighten the mood. There are many twists and turns and a gradual build-up of tension that kept me swiping pages to see what would happen next.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys women’s fiction or those who enjoy suspense. I have not read any other books from this author but I plan to read more of her books. And I look forward to reading the next book in the series."

"Talented new author for me with a surprising fresh voice"

~ VW

When I started the The Dells by K.L. Barnes I thought , " Oh no what have I gotten myself into promising to do an honest review in exchange for a copy of this book? I hate flashbacks!" and that was about the last thought I had of my own.

 

I was up all night on a roller coaster ride of emotions manipulated by this authors words. Do I need to tell you that the one small flashback that started the book did not interfere with me being able to stay absorbed in the story?

 

The large bank of characters worked the story like a con man works his mark and I was mesmerized. I had no problems remembering one from another after the short time it took to get to know them. They were well written, likable and distinct from one another and I can't wait to meet them again!

 

I would have liked the reveal of the practical joke portion to have been delayed just a tiny bit longer to add to the overall suspense but that did not interfere with my enjoyment of the story.

 

All in all the cast of characters was well written and likable; the plot was believable, interesting and stimulating; and the ending pulled everything together with a satisfying sigh of relief but left you knowing these women are not going to stay out of trouble in the future.

 

Will I buy more books from this author? A resounding ,YES!

The Mom's Mystery Weekend

Kindle Customer 5 Stars  "I loved this book, which had a number of casts but I found not too difficult to keep track of and just made the book more interesting. The caring these women shared was very endearing, as displayed when one of them gets kidnapped and all the other 6 go to extremes to find her. Everyone who likes a great mystery, with suspense, will enjoy this book. I gave it 5 stars because of how brilliant everything twists and turns but all comes out in the end."

GREAT read!!

5 Stars  adancemom

A relaxing mom's weekend takes a unique twist as one of their own is abducted by a serial killer. The plot is a thriller and yet humor is sprinkled in as it should be with these fun loving characters. I want to hang out with these girls, they have a great time yet show the love and concern for a friend in need. It was a fun read, something you could curl up with on a weekend. It has mystery, romance, and best of all a fun loving group of friends. I will definitely be purchasing the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Suspense Read

The Dells: A Moms Weekend Mystery by K. L. Barnes is a mystery/suspense with humor thrown in. It is the story of a group of moms who go away for a long weekend and the trouble they get in.

While on their weekend getaway to Prescott, Arizona, one of the friends joins a stranger, who she has just met, for a picnic lunch. When she does not return, the remaining friends set out to find their friend at all costs. When she is kidnapped, not once but twice, they will do whatever it takes to bring her back safely, even if it means risking their own safety in the process.

Detective Butch Cameron is pursuing a serial killer and really does not have time to deal with the women. But after meeting them and becoming intrigued with Camille, he is willing to help them out as much as he can. And who knows, maybe this case is related to his serial killer case. If that is the case, their friend could be in grave danger.

I was not sure how much I was going to like this book while reading the first couple of chapters. This was a group of women that I felt like I could not relate to. They seemed to only care about drinking and having a good time and seemed very shallow to me. But I kept reading, and I am sure glad I did. Everything changed for me after their friend went missing. They changed from shallow women to women who had a deep love for their friend and who would do anything to bring her home safely. They all had their own personalities and used their individual abilities to help in the search. They were all strong women in their own ways and I enjoyed getting to know them better. If I ever found myself in big trouble, I would want these women on my side, watching my back. Their love for each other and commitment to each other seemed honest and true.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author has an ability to build suspense while interspersing humor to lighten the mood. There are many twists and turns and a gradual build-up of tension that kept me swiping pages to see what would happen next.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys women’s fiction or those who enjoy suspense. I have not read any other books from this author but I plan to read more of her books. And I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very awesome book cover

Reviewed in the United States on December 11, 2014

Ginger Penmore (real estate agent), Cynthia Concanon (DoD), Lucille Welborn (military supply chain manager), Crystal Lobrien (high maintenance), Tara Harbin (hottie), Cecilia Camille Wainwright (writer), & Anca Monroe (scientist) were on their 7th annual moms weekend trip from Phoenix headed for Prescott AZ.

Marvin had been hired to keep & eye on the MILF's. The group dabbled in mystery & suspense.

The moms were all drinking & lounging around & up walks Carrie (former addict).

The bodies of Lorraine Wilson (Navajo Lake NM) & Carla Mayhew (Gunnison Reservoir Utah) had been found/identified.
6 months later Laura Pinkton (Willow Lake Park).

Detective Butch Cameron (Prescott P/D) was doing the investigations. FBI Special Agent Ralph Blocker, Chief of Detectives Leroy Hammer (Phoenix) & Sergeant Walker were also involved. Add to the list 1 more in NM, Utah & Arizona.

In the morning the girls meet Marvin Levine & Dale.

They were all going kayaking at the Dells (Watson Lake Park, Granite Mountains).

Tara Harbin & Marvin Levine were kinda on a lunch date. The 2 got attacked by an unknown assailant.

The P/D questioned her & an APB was put out on Randy.

Will Tara be found safe/sound?

Will the serial killings get solved & the perpetrator(s) be brought to justice?

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written mysterious who-dun-it book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make great mysterious who-dun-it movie, or paid-per-view mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

Thank you for the free book (Story Cartel)

The Mom's are are packed and ready to head out for a much needed weekend of relaxation, and fun. What they don't know is that there every move is being watched. What starts out as a fun filled time quickly turns into chaos and a time of fear. One of the mom's has been kidnapped! Even more frightening is that women have gone missing and been left for dead. Is this what happened? Well, since I hate spoilers, I won't tell you. However, I can say that I can't wait for the next book. The characters in this story meld well together. The story run smoothly. Full of fun,thrills and romance. I was given this book to read and give an honest review. I'm giving it 5 stars!!!!

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and I am very happy to. This was a great book. Kept my attention, didn't want to put it down. Intriguing, funny. keeps you on the edge of your seat, suspenseful. The characters are the kind you want to get to the end to see what happens, but you don't want the book to end. If you like mystery, murder with a little humor this is the book for you. I can't wait to read more KL Barnes, if the rest of her books are like this one, I won't be able to get anything else done. Really love it. Thank you for the pleasure of reading this book.

Reviewed in the United States on November 29, 2014

I loved this book. It features a group of friends who have a ladies vacation once a year. To provide them with some extra fun, their husbands get together and hire an actor to stage a mystery for them to solve, because they like dabbling in mystery. The trip starts out alright but the husbands involved their wives in more than they intended. Once I started the book I found it very difficult to put down.
