    Another wonderful sequel in the Miranda and Parker Series! Linsey Lanier is one of my automatic go to authors! I especially love the Miranda and Parker stories! This was my eighth novel read in order! While I the love the series and the interaction between the characters, Clowns and Cowboys was an excellent story, it just didn't meet my expectations from previous books! Parker is injured, doesn't want to take the case of an old friend of Miranda's! She doesn't really do friends (so it's weird from Another wonderful sequel in the Miranda and Parker Series!

While I the love the series and the interaction between the characters, Clowns and Cowboys was an excellent story, it just didn't meet my expectations from previous books! Parker is injured, doesn't want to take the case of an old friend of Miranda's! She doesn't really do friends (so it's weird from the begining)and she took the case without consulting with Parker! An apparent case of suicide, leads to missing persons, another murder and ultimately to a gigantic cover up! The storyline seemed slow and boorish, the usual conflicts between the protagonists and then something exciting happens! The powerful plotline explodes in the final 20% of the book! While some background needed to be developed, the crux of the story should have been at least half the book! A powerful and pulsepounding, full scale investigation was clearly needed! The finale is too easy and over too quickly! A shocking plotline was disappointing as anticlimatic! Spoiler Alert: Then it's over and Miranda and Parker go see Wendy skate at The Atlanta open, give thought to a first anniversary party (minimal thought from Miranda as expected, and oh she gets a threatening email she keeps from Parker [as usual])! Just another day for our erstwhile detectives!

    Found this book a deviation from reality to too much fantasy; I was disappointed with the human cloning angle and hope the next books don't go this route; I read an author in their book order so if Miranda/Parker #4 leaves too much to the imagination I will have to find another author who solves crimes & has courtroom cases putting the villians where they belong (smile). Just my opinion of Clowns & Cowboys after reading all of Linsey's previous books.

    Another gripping read Once again, Linsey Lanier did not disappoint. Miranda and Wade are on their way to Texas at the request of Sam, Miranda's old friend. Not only are they trying to solve 2 murders but Sam tries to pick up where things were left between him and Miranda years ago. They solve the murders, rescue a bunch of kids from a research lab and make it back home. But Miranda has been getting strange messages, what could they mean?

    Very inventive Lanier is very inventive and handles plotting well. I have read all 4 of the books in the series leading up to this series, and am happily reading through this series now. Linsey Lanier is an entertaining read. I highly recommend her writing. (Although I will admit to skipping some of the more explicit passages.)

    Clowns and Cowboys This is a great series each book in the series that I read so far has kept me in suspense until the very end. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book and series. Once you start this series you will look forward to the next book in the series.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book had me on the edge of my seat alright but as a series that are usually down to earth and logical the ending of this one made absolutely no sense. As I was reading you can get a sense of just how real this stuff can be sometimes but the ending was off the wall and I feel liken it could have been done better.

    Unbelievable... and not in a good way. I’ve read 8 books so far on these characters’ adventures. Clearly I like them or I wouldn’t be reading so many. But the storyline in this one was a little too far fetched for me. Just not believable or realistic. Maybe the next one will be more like the previous ones.

    Mysterious Parker & Steele I always enjoy Parker and Miranda no matter what they’re doing. I would recommend any of their mysteries to anyone who enjoys intriguing murder stories. Moving on to #4 The Watcher👍😎👽❤️Another heart rendering “Spy in the sky” know it will be as good as all the rest 🥰 Tweety

    Excellent! Each mystery seems more bizarre and unbelievable than its predecessor! In this one, however, Miranda and Parker are tested by their promises to each other about honesty in their relationship. Parker is working hard to be less controlling but he is still recovering from his serious injuries from the London case. Another scary finale!

    Solid Mystery, Manageable Emoting Miranda encounters unfinished business with Sam, an old admirer, deep in Texas, who calls her after his co-worker and buddy-a circus clown-ends up dead as a suspected suicide. Nothing is as it seems in this traveling circus and the death is just the first of many puzzling unexplained events.

    The Past A friend from Miranda's past calls needing help after his friend has died. Parker and Miranda set off to Texas for the case. Miranda doesn't reveal all the details about her friend Sam which causes friction between Parker and Miranda. Two suspicious deaths, a missing person and no one is talking. Many twists and turns.

    Well wasn't that a weird one!! Linsey must have a big imagination to come up with this story. I'm truly impressed. It's definitely beyond my imagination. I just wish she'd told Parker about the texts. She's not holding her end up to the deal. Well wasn't that a weird one!! Linsey must have a big imagination to come up with this story.

    Miss Linsey's 3rd offering She just keeps getting better and better. Her characters in this book are multi dimensional that they seem to come to life. I had part of the great who done it figured out but not who the boss was or what they did. Happy reading. I'm off to number 4 Miss Linsey's 3rd offering She just keeps getting better and better.

    Weird Case Miranda and Parker get involved with circus performers, and of course, a murder or two! Throw in a mad scientist and some cloning experiments and things really get crazy!!

    A confusing Mystery I've read many of the Miranda and Parker mysteries. But this one was my least favorite. I did not like the story line. It was too unbelievable for me.
