Hilarious, Murder-Mystery Adventure, September 4, 2012 By Jennifer Moorman Verified Purchase
This review is from: Fat Chance (Kindle Edition)
I absolutely adore this book! It's witty, intelligent, humorous (I laughed out loud often), suspenseful, has twists and turns, is set in Italy
(who doesn't love the Amalfi Coast?), and is without a doubt well-written. The details, the setting, the characters, the story--all fantastic.
As for the characters, they're dynamic, funny, and real, and I loved them. I rooted for them. I laughed with them and felt bad with them.
I bit my nails with them, dreamed of chocolate pudding with them, and wanted to chase villains with them.
I don't read a lot of murder mysteries, but this was a great book to read if you're looking for strong characterizations, clever plotting,
serious mixed with humor, and a great story. Loved it! I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone!

If you’ve been following my reviews, you will have picked up on the fact by now that I am a Malla Duncan fan. I’m one of those reader
who likes to play safe, so once I’ve found a good writer I really like, I tend to read everything they’ve written, confident that I won’t be
disappointed. Once again, Malla Duncan has come up trumps.
As a writer, this book has left me full of admiration for Malla Duncan’s writing talent. I bookmarked countless pages, wanting to read
again a line or paragraph which made me laugh out loud.
Fat Chance is a beautifully written mystery- suspense with thrills and spills combined with a clever plot that will keep you hooked
from the first page to the last. The characters were wonderful, especially amateur sleuth, Marsha, who is larger-than-life in every
sense, trampling and hurtling her voluptuous way into danger in her quest to track down the serial killer who appears to have a
preference for ridding the Amalfi coast of fat women.
Fat Chance is a delightful, hilarious, rumbustious, comedy-murder-mystery, jam-packed with hilarious one-liners,and along
with all Malla Duncan’s books, a must-read.
