    One thought on “Dead Body Language”

    1. This first book in a series is unique in that the main protagonist sleuth is deaf I really enjoy mysteries where the main character has something unusual about them, such as Connor s deafness I always feel as though I learn something and it gives a bit of uniqueness to a mystery When one reads as many mysteries as I do, the ones that don t have something special about them all end up merging into one another in my mind I ve read the first two in the series and haven t read the others only becaus [...]

    2. Not a bad book but I had trouble accepting that Connor Westphall was able to do all she could do in the book I was particularly troubled that Connor endlessly explains how difficult and inaccurate lipreading is and I know this to be true , yet she makes her way in the hearing world by relying on lipreading with little error or comment Not realistic.

    3. Not a bad read on the whole I guess the fact that Connor is deaf is supposed to give a her uniqueness from the usual amateur sleuth but to be honest, because she speaks normally can lip read so well, her handicap in some ways seems unnecessary as she comes over normal most of the time I hope that doesn t sound offensive, can t explain it any other way I d probably read another in the series should I happen across one but won t bother actively looking for .

    4. This was actually a really good mystery I did not suspect the culprit at all I wasn t crazy about the story itself but how the author writes a mystery was quite impressive but as with any mystery, looking back I am wondering how I missed it, lol.

    5. You would think that a deaf woman might be at a distinct disadvantage when a crime lands in her lap And in some respects Connor Westphal is But in other ways her ability to notice things and read people s attitudes serves her in good stead A fun, competently written mystery with an engaging protagonist I promptly went in search of the sequels, of which there are several.

    6. A little while ago, I got really weary of the lack of deaf representation in the books I read so I decided to actively look for novels with a deaf character or even gasp a deaf protagonist That s how I came to find the Connor Westphal series, a series of cozy mysteries with a plucky deaf heroine.Now I already knew I m not the biggest fan of this genre but I was pleasantly surprised with the twists and turns of this particular intrigue and, pertinently as this is what I was looking for, there we [...]

    7. met this writer at the Santa Fe mystery conference Very funny woman.had us all laughing when she was on a panel This heroine, Connor Westphal, is a journalist and is deaf which adds something different to the story, moved from San Fran to a gold rush town in CA Her great grandparents owned a diner there during the gold rush so she decided to take it over She fixed it up to live in far it s not a diner She gets involved in a murder, meets some great characters, I liked the book.

    8. Fabulous mystery Lots of red herrings and potential suspects Will keep you guessing Warning whoever converted it to Kindle should be shot Random font changes from normal to need a microscope The justification occasionally shifts to centered and stays that way Full chapters are italicizes for no reason If the story weren t so engaging I never would have finished it Though I still think owes me my money back for the formatting It was atrocious

    9. Connor Westphal is a deaf woman who publishes a weekly paper in Flat Skunk, in the foothills of the Sierras Dead bodies and amorous men turn up Connor can lip read quite well, unless the person turns away, is chewing tobacco, has a bushy mustache, or some other problem Sometimes what she thinks she sees is quite impossible, but that adds to the fun Who should she trust Who should she fear And, sometimes, body language is just as loud as the spoken word Recommended

    10. DEAD BODY LANGUAGE NRWarner, Penny 1st Connor WestphalNewly arrived in a mining town in the Sierras to start up her own newspaper, journalist Connor Westphal finds herself investigating when dead bodies begin turning up in strange places.The protagonist was just too cute to stand and every chapter end is a minor cliffhanger.

    11. This is part of the seven title Connor Westphal series, which is set in N California mining country, featuring a deaf reporter who inherited the local newspaper For information pennywarner

    12. Different with a deaf sleuth, who is a newspaper reporter More information than I wanted on the preparing a body for burial Good ending

    13. Very witty writing the main character is deaf and it adds a whole different dimension of humor The plot kept me interested I couldn t figure out who done it I really enjoyed this.
