First in a series featuring amateur sleuth Thea Kozak,a private school consultant who keeps getting involved in murder. In this one, it's her adopted sister who has been murdered, and she goes to Maine to investigate. ( )

An engaging, easy read, with a solidly-constructed, interesting mystery. The characters are compelling - even when they're not entirely likeable (and when they're entirely unlikable) - and the mystery, while surprisingly gory, is good enough that you really want to know how it ends. Lots of fun, and a great beach read. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 193232500X, Paperback)

Fans of smart, sexy, slightly screwed-up female crime solvers can add a new name to their list of favorite characters: Thea Kozak. When the heroine of Kate Flora's Chosen for Death takes time away from her career as a consultant to private schools to solve the disturbingly brutal murder of her adopted sister, Carrie, her investigation turns up painful truths she's reluctant to face. Still recovering from the emotional desolation of her husband's accidental death and the shock of Carrie's murder, Thea reenacts her sister's search for her birth mother in hopes of finding the killer in the process. Accompanying Thea--and occasionally battling with her--on her journey of discovery is Andre Lemieux, a Down Eastern detective with more than crime solving on his mind. Flora's full-bodied, complex characters bob and weave, and occasionally collide, in an intricately laid plot that explores the sometimes uncomfortable side of intimacy. More than just another well-written detective novel, Chosen for Death is also a thought-provoking study in identity, autonomy, and family dynamics that mystery lovers are certain to enjoy.
