I have never read christian fiction before. To tell you the truth I'm not a religious person. Combine that with the fact that it was the third book in a series I had never heard before, I thought I would have trouble getting into this book.I couldn't have been more wrong! The characters are so vividly written I had no problem submerging myself into their lives and caring about their every struggle. Bell is a complex character that I can relate to. She is smart yet has doubts; she is strong yet s [...]
I enjoyed this, the third installment, of the relationship between Amanda Bell, known as Bell and Jazz. Bell is a psychologist by profession and a sleuth by avocation. Jazz is a homicide detective. Although married and madly in love with each other, the baggage they each brings to the relationship and that needs to be shared, produces obstacles that they must overcome individually and as a couple. Add to this Bell's penchant for involving herself in dangerous situations much to Jazz's chagrin; h [...]
The back of this book bills it as a zany, thrilling mystery wherein our heroine, the quirky Dr. Amanda Bell Brown must find the cause for the death of a disgraced playboy evangelist's baby. I received a copy by request through the LibraryThing Early Readers Program (where it was not disclosed that it was Christian fiction) and I requested it because fiction with minority leads is something I'm actively trying to include more of here at BookLove. Unfortunately, I simply could not get into this bo [...]
I am so addicted to the Amanda Bell Series! In Book 3, Deadly Charm, our favorite couple is back (Bell & Jazz) and once again, they are nothing but trouble, together and apart. When a child dies, Bell cannot sit by idly and do nothing. She begins sleuthing again despite some very serious health issues. Jazz, who is determined to make their relationship work, agrees to help her get to the bottom of the mysterious death, igniting another roller coaster ride for readers through love, insecurity [...]
I love this woman's books! The last installment of Amanda Bell Brown's mystery, Deadly Charm, was as good as I thought it would be. While it was funny in some parts, and sad in others, it also provided some well versed paragraphs. I thought the back and forth banter and playfulness between Jazz an Amanda was so cute and cozy. Sister Lou's character was hilarious and had me cracking up at her antics. The whole lot of characters made for a harmonious book. It was so great that Amanda was finally b [...]
Love this series. The characters are relatable and draw you in. I love the verbal play between Bell and Jazz. Bell and Jazz are still trying to get the marriage together. Belle and Jazz love each other deeply. After spending their wedding night together, Bell and Jazz argue. Jazz leaves in anger. Six weeks have passed and they have not spoken to each other. Both are stubborn. Bell's family and friends decide to stage an intervention with Belle. Will it work. Belle's friend and pastor, Rocky, wan [...]
I have read all three of the Amanda Bell Brown books, and have enjoyed each one. This series is my first introdution to Burney's work and the world of Christian mystery/detective/suspense novels. Burney does an excellent job of makeing her characters realistic, imperfect people. One of my pet peeves with Christian fiction is that characters are often portrayed as superhuman or fautless. The characters of this series show us that Christians make mistakes, but hopefully, we can all learn from them [...]
You all know how much I loved the first two books in the Amanda Bell Brown Series (they made it on my Most Entertaining of 2008 list) and so I was thrilled to see that a #3 was coming out! I was glad to see Bell back in action and Jazz returns as her separated husband that is going through an emotional break down without her. She needs Jazz's help when someone dies and her gut says it's murder. So the cast of supporting characters returns with a few new faces thrown in for good measure, the writ [...]
After titles like Murder, Mayhem & a Fine Man and Death, Deceit & Some Smooth Jazz, Deadly Charms (as a title) is a little underwhelming. However, the book itself is a nice addition to the Amanda Bell Brown mysteries. Hapless sleuth Bell, with her on-going conversations with the still, small voice of God, solves the mystery of Baby Zeekie's death as well as making significant inroads into the mysteries of her own heart. Hopefully, this will not be the last we see of this set of chatracte [...]
Claudia Mair Burney’s Amanda Bell Brown is a delightful lady and excellent sleuth. Too bad her life hasn’t been on an easy track lately. Still, in Deadly Charm, she perseveres—with God’s help—through an intervention, an exorcism, and a possible murder to get her marriage and life back on track.Burney has written an engaging cast of characters who carry the reader through the plot with verve and grace, giving Deadly Charm both style and attitude. Her grasp and depiction of milieu is exc [...]
got this book as an Early Reviewer copy and did not notice that it was the third book in the series. So I came into a bit disoriented. I also missed that it was inspirational fiction, not something I normally read. So with that said, the characters were OK and the story had some interesting points. I think if a person likes inspirational fiction they could enjoy this series if they start at the beginning. I found it a bit hard to get through but for the two reasons i mentioned above, I think it [...]
The saga continues. Bell and Jazz are separated after a few hours of marriage. a relationship therapist's gold mine. These two have so much chemistry its deliciously funny and frustrating all at the same time. The Thunders are just dysfunctional, period. The sister with the anointing oil and demon-casting powers was just hilarious. Lots of LOL moments!Finally, Rocky finds love and moves on from Bell. Felt like another book is needed to continue this tumultuous love story. Wouldn't mind that sequ [...]
I simply love this series. It is refreshing to have love and romance without the sleaze. This book portrays African-American life in a realistic way, a way that I can relate to and find so enjoyable. I pray that Ms. Burney will keep the series alive. Dr. Amanda Bell Brown is at it again, trying to save others and putting her life and the lives of her loved ones in jeopardy. I "read" this on tape and Sharon Washington is THE voice of Amanda Bell Brown. She is fantastic and I am a fan.
I'm glad she finally got her wish for children. bell is a very stubborn hard-headed character, hopefully in her next adventure she will settle down and manage not to get herself practically killed she has to think about the babies now.
Another great story that reminds us not to judge others and the power of prayer and believing that all things are possible. I am going to miss Bell, Jazz, their love story and their adventures.
Took a little long to get to the point. Not very much mystery in this book. Book seemed to focus mote on Bell's issues than who killed Zeekie. Would have preferred more of s deeper plot
This book was great, guess I'm done with this series and will hunt down more by Ms. Burney.
Amanda finds herself in a deadly tangle with the charming, conniving Nikki Thunder, who will stop at nothing to get what she wants--including Bell's man.
Another great readI can't wait for the next installment!
So this is one of those titles that showed up on my OPL hold list and I haven't a clue of the 5 w's.
