    1. I read the ebook version, and was very disappointed with the editor and ebook designer. However, that's not the author's fault. The story was slow at first, and it took me a couple of times to get into it, but by the end, I really liked the characters. I'm now reading book two, which starts off with action and shows Logue's development as a writer.



    2. I downloaded the electronic edition of Blood Country when I found it as a freebie ( for only 1 day) on an e-book site. The printed edition had been published by Walker Publishing Company, Inc. in 1999, and I might have enjoyed the book more if I'd read that version. Mary Logue is a very good wordsmith. The descriptions and sense of place were quite good. Character differences made all the people in the story easy to recognize. For me, however, there were too many points of view, including that o [...]


    3. A little girl witnesses the death of her father in a hit and run accident. Keeping the secret to herself, she doesn’t tell her mother, a cop, the truth until after they have moved and a nice old man across the street is found murdered. Now the widowed cop has to solve a murder and follow up on the lead from her daughter. Are they connected?I love a good mystery and this was one of those.The author did a great job in keeping the culprit(s) a secret. That’s not always easy especially with me a [...]


    4. The basic story is fine, even if it is rather predictable. I like most of the characters and I like the setting. But, there were a few problems that a good editor should have caught. The first was that Teddy and Rich are supposed to be classmates, but Rich is described as mid-40's and Teddy was supposed to be born in '42. That doesn't make any sense given that the story is supposed to take place in '98 or '99. Also, Claire puts her badge on the counter to identify herself at the ER, but she's in [...]


    5. Claire was a Minneapolis murder detective when her husband was killed. In an attempt to escape, she and her pre-teen daughter relocated to a small Wisconsin town, where she is hired on as a beat cop. In her new job, traffic tickets are the height of crime. Then her next door neighbor, Landers, is murdered in his own garden in the dead of night, and everything changes.Weaving together the separate strands of the question of who killed Claire's husband and who killed Landers, Mary Logue does a gre [...]


    6. I love the setting of this Lake Pepin murder mystery, with a strong female lead and her uncovering the murders of her husband and neighbor. Included is a love interest but not a romance, well done and written nicely. One bothersome part was the introduction of a transgender minor character, that is improperly described as transvestite. Either the author did not do proper research, or this was written before anyone knew better terminology. (1999)


    7. Protagonist Claire Watkins has moved to rural Wisconsin with her young daughter after her husband was killed by a hit-and-run driver. She's exchanged the life of a big city police officer for a small-town sheriff's deputy career and is learning to live in the country. But the problems of the city won't leave her or her family alone. Both a police procedural and a thriller, with a great sense of place and engaging characters. I will be reading more of this series. Highly recommended.


    8. Book #41 read in 2007This was a decent first book of the series. There were some continuity errors that bugged me. For example a guy had a wife in one scene, but the next time we met him he lived only with his parents and there was no mention of a wife. Anyway, these did not detract from the story too much. I really enjoyed the main character and found the plot interesting. I will definitely read more in the series.


    9. Blood Country is the type of mystery that keeps going throughout the story therefore your interest doesn't have a chance to diminish. I feel that the intention of a review is twofold; first to lead other readers to the opportunity of reading a good story, and second to show appreciation to the author for their writing skills. So, I recommend this book to you as a very well developed mystery and have found Mary Logue to be a gifted writer.


    10. set in Ft. St. Antoine, Wisconsin, on the shores of Lake Pepin, you've got to love the local flavor! Story of Claire Watkins, who fled Mpls when her husband was killed by a hit and run driver. Solving the murder of her neighbor, she also finds out what really happened to her husband. Will definitely read more of the series!


    11. First of the series. Set in Wisconsin, with Claire Watkins left her police job in Mpls, moving to a small town after her husband was killed. She is now a deputy sheriff. Her neighbor is murdered (by his conniving sister-in-law) but the crux of the book surrounds finding out that her former partner was a drug lord and was responsible for her husband's murder -- so she kills him.


    12. The first in the Deputy Claire Walker series, Ms Logue does a wonderful job of seamlessly introducing backstory - maybe the best that I have yet read. The characters and setting of small town Wisconsin remain inviting. The mystery itself if just OK. Still, I am enjoying trying to catch up on how the characters got to where they are now.


    13. This book really kept me engaged. I don't know if it was the female police officer, the mystery of her husband's death, that it took place not far from where I live, or what, but I really liked it. I guessed the baddie (or should I say the baddie's bobo) pretty soon, but I still kept reading and was interested in how everything would pan out. I look forward to more books in this series.


    14. A fun read. Not as creepy as I was hoping based on description and title but still fun. The ending wrapped up quickly and would have liked a little more follow thru on the issue with the man, and his "boss", who killed the husband but Still an okay read. The best part for me was the main characters and the setting.


    15. Good book. Interesting twists in the plot. I like the characters and will enjoy more books about them. There was some punctuation missing, but that might be a formatting problem. Looking forward to the next book.


    16. From a free book from , it wasn't bad. A lot of unnecessary details and the story kept hopping around so you weren't always sure what was important. It was pretty easy to guess where the story was going to end up, but overall it wasn't bad for a quick read and a free book.


    17. It would have been a good book, except for all the foul language. I can do without that. Because of the language I am only giving it a 2 star. I don't know why authors think that foul language improves the story line. I don't get it.


    18. I read this book a few years ago. I believe it's the first book in the series. It was written at least 10 years ago. But man, it was so good. Please give it a shot. You will enjoy the great mystery that it sets up in the woods.


    19. This being the first book in the series, I immediately fell in love with Claire. She is a sheriff deputy who you don't want to mess with. Having parents living in small town Wisconsin, I can totally relate to Fort St. Antoine and Lake Pepin.


    20. Way to many typos!Good storyline that had me guessing to the end. Somebody really needs to edit this book. A bunch of misspelled words and a lot of run on sentences. Great story if you can deal with the typos.


    21. Pretty good mystery/thriller. I figured out the bad guy early on but it didn't ruin the story.Claire and her daughter Meg move to the country after her husband is run down by a hit and run driver. Claire does not know that Meg saw the killer and he saw her. Now he is after Meg.


    22. Too slow paced for my liking. There really wasn't any action, nor did I like any of the characters or care for them.


    23. Very good series. I had read a later book in the series and it was good to see the start of this main character.





    24. Excellent - a bit predictable but I always like a good mystery mixed with a slight overtone of romance and better yet a series book to keep me engaged and wanting more to read!
