    Quinn Jones’ husband is dead. They have ruled it a suicide but she cannot believe he would take his own life. All her friends and family as well as the police feel she just cannot accept that he took his own life so she decides to investigate his death on her own and she discovers she did not really know her husband as well as she had thought. Now there are people who do not want her asking questions. A good read with a great cast of characters. I would like to thank the Publisher and Net Gall [...]

    Six years ago, Quinn Jones was a single divorce attorney with a full life. She had her work, good friends & “Tink” the wonder dog. Then she went out for coffee one morning & met the love of her life.Jordan Chang was a smart, elegant mix of modern businessman & traditional Chinese culture. When he proposed, Quinn didn’t think twice & they set up house in his Manhattan brownstone. Now he’s dead. Quinn is devastated & nothing makes sense. The cops have ruled it suicide [...]

    Excellent writing. I loved the story which made me laugh and cry. A story of true love lost and of unforgettable friendship from unlikely friends. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery and a good romance. ncI have found another favorite author in Christine M. Whitehead and look forward to reading her latest book very soon.

    As our novel begins, NYC divorce attorney Quinn Jones Chang is well and happily married to international investment banker Jordan Chang, When she is informed that her husband has committed suicide by jumping from their home’s second floor balcony, she immediately goes into denial.No, he is not dead. No, they have mis-identified the body. No, he had absolutely no reason to commit suicide. And, yes, if he is truly dead then he was murdered.Yes, the detectives admit that it would have been diffic [...]

    I wanted a lighter hearted read but enough to keep me interested (I don’t like fluff). This was the perfect book. Quinn has the perfect life she has always wanted- a wonderful loving husband, a comfortable lifestyle and a job she loves. She is a lawyer and helps Chinese teenagers as a part time job. Her husband is an investment banker and already had the house they now live in. Suddenly Jordan commits suicide which to Quinn is so out of character. The police not having any evidence to the cont [...]

    I loved this book especially Quinn, and Ryan. The relationship that Quinn had with her boy (friends) was so wonderful. It took a long time for her to trust someone, or anyone. Is there more stories about Quinn and cohorts to come? Shirley

    Meh. She could use a professional content editor to help with plot.

    This book had some interesting moments. The title puzzled me, when I reached the end I must have skipped the tie-in, unless it had something to do with Chinatown or Laos. The first few chapters were exceptional, the description of Quinn's grief could only have come from someone who knows that level of pain. The writing at times, was beautiful.In the last third of the book I started skipping little chunks, wanting to forget about perfume and romance and each characters lives and get to the conclu [...]

    The Rage of Plum Blossoms by Christine M. Whitehead is a fairly conventional mystery story. There a few twists in the telling on the way to find the identity of a killer but we are pretty sure from the start that a murder has taken place and we read the story to find out the who and the why. As readers, we know a murder has taken place; the police do not agree, the medical examiner does not agree, the parents of the victim apparently do not agree, the victim’s best friend is uncommunicative. O [...]

    Brilliant! That is my one word for describing this story. At the core is a murder mystery, but the storyline that works alongside this is extremely well written and flows beautifully. The establishment and growth of friendships that occur between a number of characters who pop into the story along the way, complements the well described dedication of the main character on her journey of discovering what happened to her husband. The language of this story makes it easy to get caught up in it, lik [...]

    I don’t have to start my review with telling what this book is all about since other reviewers did that already. I will just tell what I thougth about this book and it will be no suprise that I rated it 4 stars. This story combines an interesting mystery with very likable characters, some humour and even a little romance. Not to speak about a litte fragrance… I’m someone who likes perfumes too, and try and wear the appropriate perfume for different occasions, but I don’t think I could ev [...]

    A so so read. I thought it was written in a juvenile manner. I became bored and skipped portions

    The best part about taking a chance on a new author is when the end result is a winner! Instantly, I connected with the story and Quinn as well as all of the other characters in the book. They did not play just minor parts or as secondary characters. I applaud Quinn's determination to find the truth while keeping a level head. There were a few times that Quinn found herself in a dangerous situation but she kept her cool. Additionally, I enjoyed learning about Chinese traditions. I have a better [...]

    This is a very long book, well written, interesting, unusual characters, with more plot than you can shake a stick at. There was at least one time when I thought, "Okay, let's get on with the mystery." I guess that's because, as well as a mystery, it is definitely a story about people, Quin, the protagonist, meeting people, knowing people, working, and not working. It's in Quin's viewpoint, and the narrative keeps changing as the reader learns more about her. As a mystery, it's all about Quin wo [...]

    Really ExasperatingI hated myself a little bit all the way through this book because I always have to know how it ends, no matter how much I roll my eyes as I'm reading. This book desperately needed better editing. There are really glaring breaks in continuity, some amateurish mistakes in grammar and structure, way too much nonsense about clothing and perfume and restaurants and and butterflies, of all things. The final annoyance came at the very end when it appears that Quinn and Sam have resol [...]

    In some ways this book gave me mixed messages as far as what author Christine Whitehead intended say in the story. On the one hand it first seemed to be a serious mystery about a questionable suicide, but then it became more a commentary on the excentric Manhattan lifestyles of the super wealthy. It was an okay read but probably too erratic in its plot to rate as a solid 'who dunnit'.

    Sarah Joint
    So engrossing! I could not put it down and read it all in one sitting. Is it the most realistic book? No. But I enjoyed it so much that the crazy coincidences and almost superpowered character didn't even bother me. She's not superpowered, but she seems to be better at more things than more people. She's into a lot of things and knows a lot about them, but they made her incredibly interesting. She's never, ever boring. And neither is this story. Quinn is a lawyer living a good life. Happy marria [...]

    A thoroughly entertaining novel with a marvelous cast of characters! It was definitely not what I expected. The lightheartedness initially threw me off, but I very quickly realized this was meant to be less sinister and dark than other murder thrillers. The ragtag team quirky Quinn assembles to help solve her husband's apparent suicide is an odd, wonderful mix of men who are completely unalike. Quinn meets all three of them purely by chance as she struggles to accept Jordan's death. In these 3 m [...]

    Really a 3.5. The plot was wonderful, wrapped me into it within a chapter. The characters were rich and multi dimensional, people i would like to know. The writing was wonderful, with clumsy inelegant moments throughout. They would completely detail my fantasy and rudely jerk me to th real world. A disharmonic note clanging so loud as to drown out the delicate prose surrounding. And then, she apparently got tired of writing and threw some kind of ending into the book to run for vacation. Or some [...]

    This reads like a cozy mystery except that it's set in New York City and that's not what you'd consider cozy. I liked the story but could have done without most of the fashion, perfume, decorating commentary and restaurant plugs. After her husband dies, Quinn doesn't believe it was suicide so she starts trying to prove it was murder and understand why. She acquires new friends who are willing and able (never seem to actually work for a living) to help her in her quest. Enjoy the process and don' [...]

    The best thing about winning books on this site is finding new authors; this is a book that deserved to be picked up by a publisher. Story flows easily, with well fleshed, like-able characters. It does not take itself seriously, as it is hard to believe that one stumbles upon the perfect mix of friends. With this said, it has a bit of mystery, suspense, and romance and was a perfectly enjoyable read, so treat yourself! Book received in contest.

    Amazing story!I loved the storyline & the characters, even the dog! The mystery of Quinn's husband keeps you guessing. In the end Quinn realizes her friends ARE her family. There were a couple of places where some re-editing of story was needed. Altogether a great read! I highly recommend this book.

    What an excellent writer. Great book.I am an action book fan, but Whitehead's Plum Blossoms gave such great characters, plot, and an amazing hero that I was entralled. Didn't put it down until the end. I thank her for introducing me to these characters. I want them for my friends.

    Lacey
    A very well written book but I'm not sure how I feel about the characters. They were all very detailed and I loved their relationship but Quinn just had some uppity, catty moments where I didn't really like her. And Sam was just a snob. There were a few inconsistencies that grated on me, but I will go back and read the first book about Archer.

    Mary Beth
    Not what I expectedIt was better! Good characters and a good plot. Quinn Jones becomes a widow via her husband's supposed suicide which she knows was murder. Now she wants answers. She doesn't stop

    Things that stickA story of friendship that blossoms in the most unlikely places and survives all - even death. A must read for those who need reinforcement about the power of friendship.

    Margie
    An interesting death to solve. An interesting death to solve. The wrap up seemed a little too contrived but it was an entertaining book. I think all the characters could have been more developed.

    Romi
    I never read mysteries but this was a fun ride. I liked the heroine and her story. Now, you have to suspend disbelief to the end of the world because the book was insanely unrealisticbut if you're willing to do so, it's quite a fun read.

    Pandora
    Beautiful, sad but oh so worth readingMystery, love story, and philosophy of life. A intriguing tale that shows how much strength a person can have if they try. A woman who just wanted the man she loved, not realizing she has a whole group of supporters. Just a wonderful piece.

    Great Reading with Danger, Mystery, and Manhattan An attorney finds that knows only a part of her beloved husband, but with help from friends and folks who know, she finds the rest.
