    12. Setting is extremely important in River City Dead. The title refers to San Antonio, TX, and the story focuses on the River Walk there during Fiesta week. The author has done her homework in researching the historical and cultural background, and a lot of it is shared with the reader as Aggie, the heroine of this cozy mystery, takes her boyfriend Sam on a tour of the River Walk area. Some readers may feel the inclusion of this much background is too pedantic, but I enjoyed and appreciated it.Aggi [...]

    15. Naturally, I was drawn to a new Aggie Mundeen mystery (Book 4), River City Dead. Cozy mysteries can be delightful. And while I'm normally not a mystery reader, this one set in is set in my hometown San Antonio, Texas. Author Nancy West will have you rolling with laughter from the very first pages. It opens with Aggie browsing the Romance section of a local bookstore. The descriptions of the covers of the “bodice rippers” portend the fun to come. While it's contradictory to speak of murder st [...]

    16. I just love the gently age-obsessed/advice columnist character Aggie Muldeen. She's so human and relatable and you just find yourself cheering for her. Another short delay on the way to romance with Sam in what should be the perfect setting at the San Antonio River Walk, but as usual crime finds Aggie without her even trying and sends her off on a detour. These books make me laugh--I was laughing from the start at Aggie's trip to the bookstore where she is perusing the romance titles and ponderi [...]

    24. A cozy mystery that takes place in San Antonio during Fiesta reminiscent of my cozy mystery, The Purple Egg Mystery, which also takes place in San Antonio during Fiesta. Nancy West's character is unpredictable, likeable and fun.

    25. ****Copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review****It pains me to say that I didn't like this, but I didn't. I can see that a lot of other people have liked it, but it just didn't work for me. Maybe it was because I hadn't read the other books in the series, but I didn't warm to the characters, who seemed quite erratic and irrational at times - with Aggie straying into Too Stupid to Live territory in places. The dialogue didn't always flow and when the characters were walking around the t [...]

    27. I enjoyed this book months ago, but my review went to . Now here's one for . Nancy G. West expertly presents San Antonio's Fiesta time and River Walk blended with a murder. Aggie and Sam blend their expertise after following many false leads in a breathless climax, a happy solution. We learn a lot about San Antonio's history along the way, a bevy of new characters, and a most ingenious method of committing murder. I highly recommend this book as relaxing and enjoyable reading.
