Book Review: Susan Hunter Mysteries

Susan Hunter Mysteries the Modern Nancy Drew

Female sleuths like the heroine of the Susan Hunter Mysteries appeal to women who cut their teeth on Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden. Susan Hunter Mysteries make being awkward cute and solving mysteries sexy. They are fun and easy to read.

Amazon has (33,473) women sleuths mysteries available. I love a good mystery, and these Eastern/Midwestern setting, Susan Hunter mysteries are all fun and “easy breezy” reading and the author is a blogger friend of mine.  I’m writing one post about several of these books because they are like Castle or Bones, two of my favorite TV series. The characters stay the same, but the crime changes.

What Makes the Susan Hunter Mysteries Fun?

The author, Maddie Cochere has a website and Gravatar which introduces us to her adorably lovable protagonist, Susan Hunter.  If Legally Blond had not already been written and produced, I think Maddie could have written the script.

Susan shops for name brand clothes without having a name brand type job, eats fattening foods without getting pudgy, plays racquetball better than any male without threatening anyone’s manhood, seldom cries when she gets hurt, attracts every man she meets in a town the size of New York City, and doesn’t have sex with her boyfriend in the first two books.

What makes tight-muscled Susan Hunter bearable is that she is unbelievably clumsy. She falls in the mud, dives into the ocean and one breast pops out, has a pitcher of beer spilled down the front of her name brand name blouse without getting mad, and gets her tennis shoe (with her foot in it) caught in the mouth of a shark. Oh yes, and she helps catch bad guys (not gals), too.

The Susan Hunter Mysteries Make Great Gifts for Pre-teens

I bought four of Maddie’s books for my Kindle, and I’ve breezed through them all. If you want to buy something for the young women in your family that isn’t filled with bad language and graphic sex scenes, then I recommend Maddie’s Susan Hunter series for YA.

  1. Susan sounds like my kind of girl! I already have one book on my Kindle so I must get to reading it. In Australia, a racquet is what you hit a ball with and a racket is lots of very loud noise eg The people at the party next door made a big racket.





Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
