The author of the Josephine Fuller Series is Lynne Murray, and I have to say, the first four books of the series have given me a lot of reading enjoyment. Her fourth Josephine Fuller novel (A Ton of Trouble) was published in 2002, so I have been waiting quite a while for the fifth book to hit the shelves. After repeatedly seeking out third-party information about the whereabouts of her new novel, I finally went to her personal blog and asked when it was scheduled to be published. You cannot imagine my surprise at finding out that the novel is not going to be published!

Josephine Fuller, the main character, finds her ex-husband's new girlfriend murdered, and apparently she has found her best friend murdered in a previous book. Already this is a bit too much, even if stumbling over dead bodies comes with the territory in this genre. But Jo herself is likeable enough and has a very nice sense of humour, so never mind the rather unbelievable plot. She is also obese, which is rather refreshing considering that heroines in mystery novels tend to be slim and gorgeous.

However, a nice main character is not enough to make this a good story. There are lots of other characters, many of whom don't really add anything to the story. Gay men, lesbian women, a former Hollywood star who pursued her career and neglected her children, a womanizer, a convicted murderer who is out on parole, a film producer who makes adult movies starring big women, the chacacters are piling up and they are all so exaggerated and stereotype that it becomes ridiculous after a while.

Sorry, I wanted to like this story, because I liked the main character and the writing is ok, but I got fed up and lost interest in it mainly because of all the other exaggerated characters.

This is the first Josephine Fuller Mystery I have read and I just love it!

This is a fast paced story, and well written. The people are believable, and you get to know them well as the story unfolds. At one point in the story, this one woman was said to be dead, but as the story unfolds, we find she is not. you know it is a good story when you feel happy she is not dead!

Now a little disclosure here. I am 5' 2" tall. I weigh 140 pounds, so I am not considered fat or even heavy. Josephine, is heavy, and some might consider her fat. Thing is this, fat is not an evil crime. It is who you are that counts. Throughout this story, her value as a person comes into play and not her weight. Except for one comical incident almost at the end where even Josephine thanks God she has the weight to do what she is doing here (will not say too much to spill the beans).

Get this book, you will love it!

This third book in the Josephine Fuller mystery series. It is well-written and is an enjoyable read with some humorous parts and a few twists and turns. It was hard to put down. The author did a good job of developing the characters and helping you to stay on top of the characters relationships to each other. In addition, the author helps you visualize all the scenes in the book with her strong story telling skill. Furthermore, it includes a surprise ending.

I enjoyed this book much better than the second one and look forward to reading the fourth book in this series by Lynne Murray.

I enjoyed this book to a certain point. I loved that it was concerning a larger female heroine, that she wasn't scared of her own shadow and that she had a bunch of good friends. There were points that irritated me, the fact the author kept pushing more and more the large size of the heroine-a few mentions are enough, not the minimum of one per chapter- The stereotypical of old lady/fat lady getting used by a man because they are "unwanted" and the constant reminder that her husband left her for a skinnier woman. I will probably read more of these books because I enjoyed enough of the main story lines.

I didn't finish the book, which is unusal for me, because I just wasn't interested in the characters. I like stronger characters and the only one that might have matched that is the one who was killed before you could really find out much about her. The book lost me about the time of the murder. I just didn't care for the characters and wasn't interested in Who done it. I think that others might enjoy it but it didn't jazz me. Just my opinion, check it out as a Free book if it sounds interesting to you.

Many things go into a good series, but one thing is a definite stand-out - a lead character that you want to see again. Josephine Fuller fits the bill. Murray has created a character that's quirky and entertaining enough to easily hold your interest, but didn't make the mistake of going so overboard on 'character' that she distracts from the actual story.

If you're into hardcore, gritty mysteries, look elsewhere. "At Large" is a light-hearted cozy that will keep you smiling.

This is the first book I've read by this author and the first l've read where the main character is a woman of substance...it is refreshing to learn that some folks actually believe that ample flesh does not result it a scarcity of brain cells. I look forward to reading more from this author.
The was the first book I've read from this author. Some of the characters could have been written better and the "apartment exorcising" portion seemed a little contrived. I enjoyed the book though and will consider downloading another one if/when it becomes a daily special.
