New York Times-Bestselling Author: A PI-in-training gets drawn into a dysfunctional family fighting over money and murder...

Some days are just weird city. Take today. Jane Kelly, thirtysomething ex-bartender, current process server, and owner of The Binkster, a pug, is dutifully putting in slave-labor hours working for Dwayne Durbin, local "information specialist" (i.e., private investigator), and on the road to becoming a P.I. herself. Next thing she knows she's socializing with the Purcells, a rich, eccentric family with a penchant for going crazy and/or dying in spectacularly mysterious ways.
From what Jane can tell, the Purcells all want Orchid Purcell's money. And when Orchid turns up in a pool of blood, the free-for-all has just begun. Then when Jane finds a second body, it seems weird city is about to get even weirder??and a lot more deadly...
In her second smash outing, Nancy Bush's wickedly funny heroine, Jane Kelly, proves herself a worthy successor to Stephanie Plum, but with a wit, style, and dog that are definitely all her own.
"With her clever ability to handle the zaniest of life's circumstances, Jane won't disappoint readers."??Publishers Weekly

OK, Bush is not as good as Janet Evanovich (and Jane Kelly is not Stephanie Plum.) Light stuff. ( )

Electric Blue is the second novel in the Jane Kelly mysteries. Jane Kelly is training to be a private investigator or information specialist. She prefers to do research or serving process papers for local lawyers. She is reluctant to go into the business but her employer, Duane Durbin, feels she has potential. He gives her cases and mentors her. The latest case involves the richest family in the Lake Chinook's area. The Purcells founded the real estate in the 1800s and continue to build their real estate empire. The family also has mental illness in the genes. Duane finished a divorce case of one of the Purcells and assigns Jane to take the case of her cousin, Jasper "Jazz" Purcell. Jazz is an extremely handsome man, too handsome for Jane's own good. Jazz asks Jane to keep an eye on his grandmother, Orchid (the females in the family have flower names). Orchid also controls the family money, is suspicious about her children and is losing her sanity. Jane agrees and walks into a battle of a sibling who feels they are entitled that the Purcell fortune. Unfortunately, Orchid disappears then dies soon after Jane arrives. Jane learns about family history. Most of the mystery centers on Jazz's mother dying in an asylum and the cover-up by the institution and the family. The father molested the girls and the brothers raped their sisters. Then there is Jazz's wife killed in an accident, which also gave Jazz short term memory loss. The story is further complicated when Logan, Jazz's 12-year-old son is the sole recipient of the entire fortune. The sibling is either for him or against him. An unexpected arrival helps Jane finish the mystery of the Purcell family, which will continue in part two of the family drama.

Many people will compare this series to the Stephanie Plum Series but I like Jane Kelly better. I mostly like the sense of humor Nancy Bush gives the character and she made Jane independent with a potential love interest in Duane. The interactions Jane has with her family (her brother Booth and mother), her best friend Cynthia and her job have a comfortable feel as if you know these people. If you are interested in light mysteries, I would recommend this series. ( )

These books get better and better! Binks is awesome, and I can relate to Jane most of the time...great mystery with a bit of romance thrown in. The Purcells are totally crazy though! ( )

I tried this book before I read Candy Apple Red and didn’t like it. But after I got to know the characters, I thought I should give it another try. I’m glad I did. Bush writes an interesting, twisting mystery, with a large cast of characters to choose from. Jane is quirky, independent, and owns a pug. What more do you need out of a heroine? A great read to dig in with as the weather is turning… ( )

I didn't read Candy Apple Red, so I suppose I'm not as into Jane Kelly by this point as I'm supposed to be, but I thought the book was decent. I was a little annoyed that the back of the book was wrong (SPOILER: Orchid's death, seemingly the main plot instigator, doesn't happen until about 240 pages of a 350 page book, and the "second body" Jane discovers was not a part of this book), so it was much less action-packed than I was led to believe it was. Jane is definitely a fun, spunky heroine you like cheering for, but not a whole lot actually happens. Most of the sleuthing she does is for her own curiosity and doesn't expect anything to really come for it, which tells an interesting story, but it wasn't too exciting. I like her sense of humor quite a lot though, and maybe I will pick up the first one someday. ( )
