Here's What They're Saying About

For fans of cozy mysteries you can't go wrong with Deadly Advice. It has a very likable main character and good subtle humor. And, for those who shy away from cozies, give this one a try. It doesn't gloss over the crime and there is a lot more depth to the emotions displayed by all the characters. This is a real standout mystery.
-- Iliana,

Isleib's series debut shines with wit and suspense, thanks in part to an affable and intelligent heroine.   Succinct plotting and expert pacing also help this well-crafted cozy shine.
-- Sheri Melnick, Romantic Times Magazine

DEADLY ADVICE deftly balances lighter moments--like Rebecca's adventures in online dating--with more serious undertones that build to a frightening climax.
-- Joe Meyers, The Connecticut Post

Isleib has done a remarkable job of describing a truly sympathetic figure in the person of Rebecca Butterman, and provides the reader with plenty of suspense in the process.
-- John Broussard, I Love a Mystery Newsletter

Dr. Rebecca Butterman is a delightful new sleuth, a character wonderfully fleshed out by the author, herself a clinical psychologist. Deadly Advice has great secondary characters, including Rebecca's "Sunday friends" and the quirky residents of her condo neighborhood. Detective Meigs is a departure from the stupid, stubborn or too-hunky-to-be-believed cops that populate many mysteries featuring female amateur sleuths.
-- Diana Vickery, The Cozy Library

Rebecca Butterman, a supporting character from Isleib's Cassie Burdette golfing mysteries, shines on her own. The mystery is carefully plotted and there are plenty of suspects and motives to keep readers guessing. Fans of the Cassie Burdette series will be pleased to hear how well things are going for Cassie when she makes a cameo. Roberta Isleib's series is off to a strong start. An enjoyable heroine and an interesting plot will keep readers engaged while they forget about some of their own problems and see what advice Dr. Aster will dish up today.
-- Jennifer Monahan Winberry, The Mystery Reader

I enjoy Isleib's golf mysteries, but I love Dr. Rebecca Butterman. The characters are rich and complex, the plot is current and the twists will keep you turning the pages.
-- Andrea Sisco, Armchair Interviews

Dr. Butterman Rebecca is a wonderful, sympathetic character who is able to admit her own culpabilities while helping others. She has a great support cast of friends and coworkers, as well as her new cat Spencer.
-- Beth Slater,

Isleib's new heroine is both engagingly unassuming and daringly determined, a combination that adds vitality and spirit to her suspenseful and well written plot.
-- Stephanie Padilla, New Mystery Reader

Deadly Advice is a fast-paced mystery, with red herrings around every corner, and plenty of twists and turns.
-- Christy Tillery French, Midwest Book Review

I can't wait for the next one! I highly recommend this book.
