    1. It's a Mod, Mod, Mod, Mod Murder, the first installment in the Murder a-Go-Go Mystery Series, is a breezy introduction to Bebe Bennett, a naive newcomer to New York City in 1964. Bebe, a graduate of Charlotte Marie's Secretarial School for Young Ladies and worldly-wise Darlene are unlikely roommates in the Big Apple. When the novel begins, Darlene has just arrived home after a transatlantic flight from London where she met Keith Royal, lead singer of the Beefeaters Royal, a Beatles wannabe band. [...]

    2. Elizabeth 'Bebe' Bennett, secretary to Mr. Bradley Williams, vice president of talent for Rip City Records, begins investigating a murder when her roommate Darlene, an airline stewardess, discovers the body of Philip Royal, lead singer of the British pop sensation Philip Royal and the Beefeaters, becomes a suspect, and is grounded from flying. While trying to clear Darlene's name, Bebe finds out that Philip’s fellow band members - Keith who wants to lead the band in a different direction, Regg [...]

    3. I read this because I used to be in a Lilian Jackson Braun fan group on yahoogroups with the author, and she was very nice. I'm glad I did. There are some sentences that do not ring true, especially in the first few chapters, but once the book hits its stride it is a lot of fun and a better mystery than I expected. Though the heroine's obsession with her boss drives me crazy (I keep wanting to holler, "You can do sooooo much better than this! Pretty is as pretty does," etc), I still found her li [...]

    4. I remember liking it okay. I got it mainly since the "Murder a-go go" thing amused me. She's kinda funny and I kind of like the kitschy/campy feel to it. However, I have some problems with it. I liked the Paige Turner ones slightly more. It is cute and has some moments. But it also has moments where I role my eyes. Oh Bebe, grow up. Bradley's not that dreamy.

    5. A fun cozy mystery. Bebe is very naive but not stupid, and gets herself into a pack of trouble trying to clear her roommates name. This book was a good antidote to some of the dark books I've been reading lately concerning child abuse and grinding poverty. If you are looking for something fun and cheery and yes, quite campy, this might do the trick.

    6. I just finished reading this for the second time, and I tell ya, it NEVER gets old! I love it and it suits me perfectly. I can totally relate to Bebe in many ways and acknowledge her innocence. I wish more mysteries were written like this!

    7. Cute! Makes me want to bust out my white patent leather boots. Can't wait to dive into book 2--with a Pucci scarf as a murder weapon!

    8. I picked this up at a used bookstore, in the mood for something light, and I got exactly what I was looking for. The characters & setting were fun and the mystery was a nice cozy-style.
