    "I can't say as if I've read more than four or five books that were set in Michigan, but Killshot, by Elmore Leonard, is by far the best. This mystery is so thrilling that it's hard to fall asleep while reading it. "

    "I am heading out to Michigan for a job and have a lot of time to read while my partner drives the moving van from our old home here in Alabama. So I picked this book up at the store because it is set in our new home state. It was ok, the bit about her struggles seemed a bit melodramatic."

    "Are you kidding? This is a "Christian Historical Romance." That kind of...stuff (I can't say what I really want to) has no appeal. Let the power of Christ compel you to stay away from this pile of garbage."

    "The book A Vision of Murder (Psychic Eye Mysteries) is not a set of books at all and it doesn't have anything to do with Michigan so this book would not be an adequate solution for the best books set in Michigan. This book deals more with psychic intuition and how it was used to solve some murders. Good book, just not for this topic."
