I am reading the series now and liking Cat Austen a lot. I am halfway through the third book. Cat and Victor are my idea of a modern Nick and Nora.

One thing about Jane Rs series that I like is how much the Jersey Shore and Atlantic City are "characters". I don't usually like to take a whole tour through the setting that eats up pages, but I like when there the background is in three dimension. The beach, the houses and neighborhoods and even the casino in Fruitcake seem like real places. (I have been to A.C. casinos and it was spot on) I wish they would do with this series what they did with Bones which was another favorite and adapt it for TV.

I bought Jane Rubinos series years ago and loved it. My favorite two mystery series characters are Cat Austen and Victor Cardenas. I get when posters say they are in love with Victor . A real hunk of man.
So I got the Kindle version to see what changes were and read authors note because I keep hoping the series will get revivied. Raise the Dead made me cry and so did Plot Twist.

I am in LOVE with Victor Cardenas. I mean serious love. The characters as a whole are real and fun but Victor is the only man for me. I wonder - was he based on a real person?

Downloaded the 3-in-1 on the kindle, the first three books in the series. Finished Death of a DJ in one sitting and got so into the Cat and Victor relationship. Halfway through Fruitcake now.

I read the series some time ago but downloaded the three book editions on kindle. The author note was interesting and there were a few little changes but glad to see that Cat and Victor were still the characters I loved at first sight
Other people have brought up the dialogue. Its like you can hear it. I wonder what audio books would sound like.

I found on kindle that the first books in the Rubino series are out in a bundle. Its three books for one price which seemed like a good idea to me since its priced around what you pay for one novel. I bought it after reading the preview and liked it. Halfway into Death of a DJ now and gotta go with others on this list who brought up the dialogue. Funny stuff.

When was the last in ths series published? Having a hard time getting my hands on Cheat the Devil, not in PB or Kindle. I got that anthology with Cake Job and rounded up a few other short novel anthologies by the publisher Worldwide Mystery. Neat concept.
Anyway really liked Rubinos writing.

Three of these were passed to me by a friend who thought I'd like 'em. Totally in luv with the Cat and Victor relationship - especially Victor who is a real, flesh and blood male. Somehow old school but very modern.

Last week Entertainment Magazine online did an article about books that would make good TV shows and i put up a post with my 8 pics that included the Cat Austen series and surrpised to see a few people jump on BUT the shocker was that someone said the books actually were optioned!!! I wish i know where i could go to confirm it. Feel weird about trying to email the author.
