    • Fever in the Dark, Ellen Hart’s 24th Jane Lawless mystery, focuses more on gay rights and women’s issues than any of the other books in the series. Jane, who is a lesbian restaurant owner, and her best friend Cordelia Thorn, a flamboyant theater owner, who is also gay, are both prominent characters in this story. However, the primary characters are two women who attract all sorts of attention when a video of their wedding proposal goes viral on YouTube. This causes friction in the relationsh [...]


    • Fever in the Dark by Ellen Hart is the twenty-fourth A Jane Lawless Mystery series. Fiona and Annie are returning home to after their vacation to celebrate their one year wedding anniversary. As soon as they get off the plane, their phones start ringing. Their friend, Roxy DeCastro has left a message asking them to contact her before arriving home. It turns out that Roxy had a video created of Fiona’s proposal to Annie and then their wedding. It was subsequently uploaded onto You-tube, and the [...]


    • While Ellen Hart continues to do her thing--offering up another decent Jane Lawless mystery involving past secrets, contemporary social problems and interpersonal interactions--I want to say how much I enjoy reading mysteries that are inclusive, with gay characters that aren't sidekicks, shticks, or psychopaths. Rather than review, I'd also like to encourage you to support your local feminist bookstore, if your town has one. I miss the days when I could walk into Mother Kali's and browse the she [...]


    • This sounded very promising--set just after the Supreme Court's legalization of gay marriage, with newlyweds returning from the honeymoon to find that a video of their proposal has been posted online and gone viral. So, timely themes addressed by an award-winning author. Alas, I soon found nearly all of the characters got on my nerves. The newlywed Fi(ona) was all right, but her lack of knowledge about her wife Annie's past sounded like a red flag, and most of her friends and co-workers seemed t [...]


    • Overall, the book was a super quick read! I'm not going to go over the plot in depth because you can find that in other reviews, but I wanted to bring up a large issue that I had representation wise.First, this has nothing to do with the wlw characters in this book. Jane, Julia, Fiona, and Annie were all absolutely fantastic and I loved them with all my heart. My issue came with the representation of Mimi, who is diagnosed as having bipolar depression and narcissistic tendencies in the novel. Th [...]


    • Fever in the Dark is the twenty-fourth Jane Lawless mystery by author Ellen Hart. I read The Grave Soul by Ellen Hart last year and really enjoyed it so I have been looking forward to Fever in the Dark. I was not disappointed.Fever in the Dark is character driven by a fascinating group of people. Jane's friend Cordelia runs a theater. Fiona is her stage manager. Fiona has been married for one year to her wife Annie. Annie's past has always been a bit of a mystery but not once a video is uploaded [...]


    • Someone's posted a video of Fiona proposing to Annie on YouTube, and their life has become a hell of social media and the press. When a bomb is found outside their house, Fi's boss, Cordelia Thorn, offers them a place to stay in her mansion. But with them come Annie's long-estranged but eager to reconcile family, who not only rejected her when she came out to them, but also failed her in another way, which no one knows about but her and her late mother. When there's a murder at Thorn Hall, their [...]


    • I love the Jane Lawless series by Ellen Hart. Jane and Cordelia always have some light moments. This one read a little slow, although an easy read. Hoping the next one return to more action and intrigue.


    • Whew! I was a little worried after the last book that Hart had lost her way. But she certainly found it again with Fever in the Dark. A great page-turner and engaging read. I would recommend this!



    • There was little denouement, the ending felt much too rushed. But all in all, a good read, as always with this series.



    • I do love Cordelia Thorn, Jane's sidekick. This book introduced me to her latest catchphrase, "oh my stars and garters!" This is really more of a 3.5 rating.


    • Character-driven mystery with crisp writing that makes for a fast read. Sometimes the characters seemed unaffected by events, but that's not necessarily a downfall of a cozy mystery. I'll be looking up the first book in the series.


    • It’s always a good day when a new Jane Lawless mystery comes home from the library with me! With a nod to current events, this one centers around a marriage proposal video made possible by marriage equality laws. Couple Fiona and Annie are vacationing when friends post a video from the party at which Fiona asked Annie to marry her. The video goes viral, and the women return home to a life gone chaotic. And the attention from the press and the curious public is only the tip of the iceberg. Alon [...]


    • Fiona and Annie return from their 1st anniversary trip to discover that their proposal video had been posted on YouTube and caused a media frenzy. When some of the attention turns threatening, Fiona asks her friend, PI Jane Lawless, to step in.



    • MWA Grand Master Ellen Hart's Jane Lawless books are ALWAYS on my TBR list! This one is unusually compelling. Although Jane is undergoing personal challenges, including some at her Twin Cities restaurant, she can't say no to a request for help from Fi, a young woman whose engagement video went viral--causing a storm of hateful comments on social media and national press. When Annie, Fi's wife, is overwhelmed at the un expected appearance of her California family (father, sister, brother-in-law, [...]


    • This was a vastly improved outing from the previous book which was full of really unlikeable characters. Thanks Ellen!


    • awesomeGreat job, well thought out characters and awesome story lines. The dialogue all everyone is just so real. Thanks for sharing.
