One thought on “Snipe Hunt

  1. Phrynne

    Another enjoyable book in the Professor Simon Shaw series.I like Simon Shaw He is smart and funny and altogether likeable Having an appealing main character always helps make a book easy to read The other characters are good too and their dialogue rings true.Unfortunately there is far too much detail included about insignificant things Every new character is described to the last detail including exactly what they are wearing Every new location is pictured minutely And worst of all several of th [...]

    I m a big fan of crimes in the past that lap over into the present, and I found the information about German submarine crews coming ashore during WWII intriguing.

  3. JoAnn77PL

    As previously the book was slow paced, but that s completely OK with me I m not in a hurry so I like it unraveling at its own tempo.Another plus was that Simon stopped being over sensitive, constantly overwhelmed by his personal tragedy of divorce hero He was much alive and I really liked that I was also very happy to get to know Morgan the one who was described as misogynist However I so very much despise the author s probably involuntary sketching the historical background where Nazis are de [...]

    Simon Shaw, History professor vacations in Pearlie North Carolina over the Thanksgiving Holiday There he is pulled into helping to solve a mystery A body of a diver is pulled from the water A man who drowned in the 1940s is determined a murder victim On his person he has rare gold coins that date back to the Civil war era The mystery is engaging and the history interesting However the romance between Simon and his girl friend police detective lacks chemistry The mystery and the history than com [...]

    On balance, I am growing so impatient with mediocre novels that I may start randomly reading mediocre nonfiction and nothing else It was strictly a few strange, rare facts which made this so called mystery worth finishing Gold coins were illegal to own in the United States from 1934 to 1975 In WWII there were German submarines right offshore from North Carolina Lots of them The American Nazi publication Liberation sold a million copies in its heyday The Confederate Treasury of 100,000 thousand d [...]

  7. Donald

    A decent mystery with likable characters and a satisfactory conclusion Well paced and well written Had a few grammatical errors, but sadly too many books do these days.

  8. Kellie

    I love a good mystery This is the 2nd of the Simon Shaw mysteries Shaber is a master researcher There was some interesting information about shipwrecks, the Wilmington area, hurricanes, WWII and the Civil War This was also a pretty good story Simon is definitely growing on me He is a very likable character He is at the beach near Wilmington with a friend of his They are asked to help answer some questions about some coins found with a dead body A dead body from the 40 s they just dredged up off [...]

    Professor Simon Shaw wants nothing than to spend a peaceful Thanksgiving with friends, staying in Pearlie Beach, a small town on the Outer Banks of North Carolina But even has the turkey roasts, he finds himself embroiled in a fifty year old mystery of strange disappearances, suspicious deaths, and treasures lost and found.The holiday disruption begins with the body of a local man is dredged from the waters of Pearlie Beach In his hand, several rare Confederate coins in his decaying ribs, the s [...]

    This is my first cozy mystery by Author Sarah R Shaber I have since discovered that she has a slew of different series set in the same southeastern USA coastal area, Pearlie Beach, North Carolina I said this is my first Shaber mystery but it won t be my last I thoroughly enjoyed her offbeat hero Simon Shaw, archeologist, and heroine and hint of romance I enjoyed all the colorful characters and natural beauty of the oceanside setting I also like the interplay of history with the present I appreci [...]

  11. Kathy Smith

    I enjoy Sarah R Shaber s books Snipe Hunt is a mystery involving Professor Simon Shaw Professor Shaw is an intelligent man who is able to piece together clues to solve the mystery In this case there were several deaths during WWII on the North Carolina shore Simon and his friends are staying on the beach for the Thanksgiving holiday when the neighbor is murdered The tenacious detective is able to figure out what happened and who is responsible The gold coins are a clue that adds questions to the [...]

  12. Dian Cronan

    I was disappointed The plot moves extremely slowly The resolution is supposed to be a twist, but ultimately is a far fetched disappointment I also felt like the author included a lot of unnecessary details, painstakingly describing a dinner and all of the food preparations that have nothing to do with the story The relationship between Julia and Simon is confusing because it s not clear why they aren t dating yet act like they are There are also several places where dates or years relevant to th [...]

  13. Michael

    Too much of the wrong kind of detailThis was the second book I have read in the series , and I confess to being a bit disappointed Some details are necessary, but others just seem to get in the way I didn t need to know that the watch was a Rolex or that the refrigerator was a Frigidaire I will read the next book in the series, however, because as a historian I find the characters and the narrative interesting.

  14. Lesley Looper

    I really enjoyed this story set on coastal North Carolina I didn t guess whodunit, so it was an interesting surprise While Professor Simon Shaw does get a little snoopy I dislike snoopy protagonists in cozy mysteries , the character snoops in a very smart way, I think I enjoyed the plot and character development, and it seems that Shaber did a lot of research for this book I look forward to reading in this series

  15. Louise Sumner

    Another solid outing in the Simon Shaw series I always get a kick out of these because In elementary school I spent a fair amount of time with the author and her family and I see aspects of them in the books Also, any book set in NC will get a second look from me But these books are also really fun and well done.

  16. Nancy

    A nicely paced mystery with not too much violence This is the 2nd book in the Professor Simon Shaw series There amateur sleuth aspect is plausible and her descriptions of history and geography bring the North Carolina Coast alive Solving the mysteries revolves around untangling events that happened during WWII Shaber weaves in bits of Civil War and 1940 s history in an entertaining manner.

  17. Susan

    I love it when a novel gives me historical facts, but makes it part of the story, especially when it s about my own state of NC I learned some things I didn t know about the NC coast during WWII and enjoyed the present day mystery as well.

  18. Sam Shaber

    Though maybe not the best cover art in history this particular cover art for the book , Sarah R Shaber s second novel is a wonderful sopho book

  19. Julie

    Another great mystery where a historical mystery causes a modern day one and is investigated by a simple university professor and his friends The history is also fascinating Well worth the read.

  20. Denise

    Good book for an afternoon in the patio furniture I have really enjoyed the Simon Says series so far They are a nice read, not too complicated but enough to keep you reading.

  21. Dana

    Continue to be a lot of page return problems in the digital version and missing dates in 2 of this series However, the characters and story are well written so worth the effort.

  22. Katharine Ott

    Snipe Hunt written by Sarah R Shaber and published in 2000 by St Martin s Minotaur Comfortable, not especially riveting, mystery novel.
