Book Review: Bleeding Hearts

Title BLEEDING HEARTS (The Gregor Demarkian Holiday Series)
Author Jane Haddam
Rating ***1/2
Tags mystery, series, gregor demarkian, self-help 

This is the first I've read of the Gregor Demarkian series where the murder hits in his Armenian neighborhood. His middle-aged, plain widow neighbor, Hannah Krekorian, holds a party for a man she started seeing recently. He is Paul Hazzard, a recovery guru who was acquitted four years before of killing his second wife. At Hannah's party, with Gregor in attendance, he in turn is murdered.

This was a good book, but not one of my favorite so far, in part because one or two of the characters are really obnoxious. Doesn't turn me off the series at all... Haddam has a talent for getting inside of people, and they are not always people one would like to know.
