At a time when so many mystery books are written purely
from the point of view of an amateur sleuth, I found
this book refreshing because it uses the third person
point of view and the mystery is solved by both a
professional and an amateur in partnership. I liked
the switch from Belle's intuitive, personal and word-solving
mind set to her husband Rosco's fact finding no nonsense

but his life. I was fond of the sleuths, enjoyed the
crossword puzzles and overall found A CROSSWORD TO
DIE FOR a good read."
Nero Blanc mystery is always fun to read because of
the two protagonists who are so much in love that
they leave the audience feeling clean and refreshed.
The story line itself is complex, entertaining and
thoroughly thought-provoking, a mystery lover's delight
as well as a crossword puzzle fan's pleasure. This
book, in fact this series, is highly recommended."
