    1. A received a copy of this book for a honest review. Honestly I am so glad I got it. I could relate to this book in so many ways it was like reliving my childhood over again. Set in a small town outside Chicago, where everyone knows everyones business but not their deep dark secrets. The sheriff reminds you of every small town sheriff, who wants to do as little as possible. Helen herself, kept me in stitches in this book. But I kept invisioning her as Medea. lol. All the gossiping women meeting a [...]

    2. I love how Susan takes her readers right into the heart of River Bend, Illinois, a little town that seems to attract the most interesting crimes. Helen Evans is a lifelong resident there, so naturally it worries her when things go wrong - and she just can't seem to help getting involved, much to Sheriff Biddle's chagrin! The characters that populate Susan's stories are engaging and personable with my favorite being Helen herself, a character that Susan based in part on her beloved grandmother, H [...]

    3. 4 out of 5 stars Copy for ReviewHelen Evans is a 75 year old widow who granddaughter is caught with the murder weapon of her former employer. She sets out to prove her granddaughter innocence despite that the victim was not like since she was going to publish a tell tale book about the small town people changing their names.Also there been a rise of burglaries where there is no sign of break in and tell tale fingerprints. Hidden valuables are stolen like the intruder is an inside person. Are the [...]

    4. This makes two Helen books this week! The series is growing me and I am planning to continue reading. I enjoy the characters,especially Sheriff Frank Biddle. I think that as the series goes on he will come to trust Helen more. In this outing, the peace and quiet of the town is disrupted by a series of break-ins and a murder. The reader can follow the clues as well as Helen, and perhaps solve the crime when she does. This review is based on an ARC provided to me by the publisher.

    5. helen. i love her mind, how it works. she is a well drawn character that must be modelled after someone the author knows. ms mcbride writes a clean. crisp novel that doesnt require the reader to say "what?" and backtrack for clarification. the next helen is one i look forward to reading.

    6. A Fun ReadIt’s just a fun book and on the order of Murder She Wrote. It kind of gave itself away with the odor that was in the victim’s house. But again, light-hearted!

    7. Great readI was just transported to a small town full of interesting people and a good, old fashioned mystery to boot. More!

    8. openbooksociety/article/maBrought to you by OBS reviewer JoAnneGrace Simpson is a psychoanalyst who practices in River Bend, with plenty of clients from among the townspeople. She also has an assistant, Nancy, who just happens to be Helen Evans’ granddaughter. Grace is not only a demanding boss, she is also a very nasty one. She berates Nancy constantly, and expects her to do everything for her, including waiting at her house while the carpenter does work.But Grace has now decided to write a n [...]

    9. I am glad that I persevered with this series because the second book was very good. With the more in depth character development of Helen Evans and a story line that I felt some connection with, I sailed through this book only putting it down when I had no choice.It is set in the quaint little town of River Bend, IL nestled along the edge of the Mississippi River. Helen Evans is a septuagenarian who tries to live life to the fullest, reading, doing crossword puzzles, walking everywhere, playing [...]

    10. Loved this cozy, and will read more of this author. Kept me guessing until the end, and a funny, suspenseful read. Loved Helena great sleuth! This is book #2.From : In the second River Road Mystery from USA Today bestselling author Susan McBride, Helen Evans must find a killer before her granddaughter is arrested for murder!When tiny River Bend, Illinois, is hit by a string of burglaries even Sheriff Frank Biddle can't solve, the clients of LaVyrle's Cut 'n' Curl can hardly talk of anything but. [...]

    11. If you enjoyed 'Murder She Wrote' this is for you. Seventy-five year old widowed grandmother, Helen, pushes her way into a murder investigation when her granddaughter is accused of murdering the town's psychotherapist. Small town gossip where everybody knows everyone elses business is supposed to be in a book the therapist has written; she is dead and the book is missing. You might guess who the killer is midway thru the book, but it is still fun (just like "Columbo") to see how they are caught. [...]

    12. Figured out whodunit early on, but still a good read. Love the play on words in the title with the main character's name. At times I thought Helen a little spry for her three quarter century age, but people are living longer, looking younger and having more abilities than they used to.In this installment Helen is mad because her granddaughter is a suspect in the murder of her boss. Helen plans on proving the sheriff wrong, her work is cut out for her because in the small town there is no shortag [...]

    13. This series is entertaining enough, light reading for my subway ride to/from work, but I feel like I'm reading a novice writer who picks the "easy" words when putting pen to paper. And feels like it's written for an audience several eras in the past, in a town called Mayberry. Nevermind that the story itself is based in a midwest small town that the writer herself had a character describe as Mayberry. For a novel written in present day, with references to modern technology, the characters should [...]

    14. I really enjoyed this one. Helen is a no-nonsense lady who really has no patience for bumbling around with a crime case. The Chief of Police really tried to do his job, but Helen keeps insisting she help. It makes for an interesting premise, and a compelling story. A good read that is easy on the brain.

    15. Another delightful installment of the River Road series. While not quite as engaging as the first, it was still a great fluff read with the same enjoyable characters as before. And honestly, I didn't realize who the killer was right away, which is always a pleasant surprise. If you're in the mood for a feel-good mystery, this series is a winner.

    16. Well written cozy that takes place in a small town that many can relate to. Helen is a sprightly grandmother who staunchly defends her granddaughter when the sheriff suspects her of murder. Though Helen takes some unnecessary chances, unlike other cozy sleuths, she's not a ditzy know-it-all. I find her character refreshing and look forward to reading more in this series.

    17. Helens granddaughter ,Nancy, is accused of murder when the local therapist is killed. She is writing a "fiction" story based on her clients from River Road. We meet up with all Helens friends and neighbors and Helen again guides the sheriff into catching the bad guys. A nice series with an older sleuth and cast of characters.

    18. I thought it was a cute cozy mystery. I read the first one so, I purchased books 2 and 3.If you like short mysteries with not much suspense then, this is the book for you. I'm used to reading books with more suspense to the like Catherine Coulter's FBI series or, any book by her.

    19. Light and enjoyableThe second River Road whodunit has our heroine, Helen, trying to clear one of her nine grandchildren from accusations of murder, while also solving a series of robberies. As usual, she doesn't let Sheriff Biddle get in her way.

    20. Finished this one up quick as well. Am pretty sure I had it narrowed to one of two people pretty early on due to a couple of clues from the author but still liked how it was tied up and that she didn't forget to deal with the willat loose end would have driven me nuts.

    21. Granny got itSomeone reviewed this book and said it reminded them of Agatha Christie's, Miss Marple. They were spot on ! Fun reading about an older woman slowly and logically solving this murder mystery. Interesting characters and a nice cat!
