Hoodwinked 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

S says: I think the story was funny and fun to read. I wish I could write a story just like Hoodwinked. First, she wanted the toad, then she noticed that the toad was too buggy. Then she wanted the bats, but she noticed the bats hung around too much. Then she found Hoodwink. At last, she found the pet she wanted. K says: A cute story about a young witch searching for the perfect scary pet. And though the one she ends up with isn't scary, he's perfect for her!A great read that illustrates the idea that what you might expect - or even hope for - isn't necessarily what's *right* for you. And changing your mind isn't a bad thing...Recommended.

Isla a prominent Dr. news saying she died from a fall off her horse. Harry was a close friend of her husband. Curiosity he goes to the autopsy, Lt.Kate is there, and wondering, why he is, then he knows, the husband is a suspect. Jim was a pussycat, he appreciated life, a vet. Harry, tired of being semi retired and a pencil pusher, trying to write a book. Wants to dig into the case, something wasn’t right, and it was bugging him. Kate, is like a pit bull, and doesn’t want Harry anywhere near the case. The lawyer Harry recommended think’s Jim is guilty, also. Interviewing the husband, opens another whole scenario, which surprises Harry. They can find plenty of players, but no evidence. This was a great plot, the characters are all there, like a chess game, but who is going to win. The outcome is surprising, Harry is stunned. He did a fabulous job with this story, readers won’t forget it.

This is the first book I read by Blair Howard and it’s not the first in the series but it was quite easy to get into right away. I didn’t feel like I was jumping in the middle as happens sometimes in series. I loved the characters and how she wove them together into the plot. Harry Starke, the main character, is called to action when a friend, Isla Tansy Mortenson Wallace, is found dead from an apparent fall from her horse. But things aren’t always as they seem and the more he looks into Isla’s death, the more questionable her cause of death is and the stranger the details of her life are. Everyone around her seems to be involved in some sort of secret group that Harry has never heard anything about before, but it shakes him to the core. He believes his friend Jim when he says he didn’t kill her, but as far as the police are concerned, her husband is the only one they’re looking at for the murder. How can Harry prove Jim’s innocence? And can he find the real killer? Or is it all a huge conspiracy to cover up something more?

My nieces and I really love this story, they want me to read it every time they come over. We lost this book during a move and I was delighted to find it again. It took me forever to find it because for the life of me, I could not remember the title and certainly not the author. The illustrations are very cute and not scary at all and the story is engrossing.
