    I had so much fun reading the first book in this series and couldn't wait for the next one! As soon as I'm Your Venus came out, I started reading it and what a delight it was!

    It was great catching up with Sylvia and the crew, Neptune and Pika included. It was nice learning a little more about Neptune, but there's still quite a bit of mystery surrounding him which makes me eager to find out even more about him.

    The mystery had lots of twists and turns and it was fun trying to figure it out along

    I'm Your Venus was a fun and quirky cozy mystery set in space that I absolutely adored. I can't wait for book three! I highly recommend!

    These scifi cozy mystery books are so fun! This is the second in the series, and is even better than the first! How interesting a crossover these books are. As a fan of both cozy mysteries and Doctor Who, they are right up my alley! They really don't have anything to do with Doctor Who, I just keep expecting the Doctor to pop around a corner!

    "I'm Your Venus" is another exciting adventure in Vallere's Sylvia Stryker cozy mystery series. The more that I read in this series, the more that I really like it. Sylvia is on a new assignment as the rightful Uniform Lieutenant on a new ship, but as usual trouble seems to follow her. When the winner of a contest is murder and dropped in Sylvia's path, she has no choice but to try and solve this latest mystery.

When the winner of a contest is murder and dropped in Sylvia's path, she has no choice but to try and solve this latest mystery.

    Vallere does a great job with developing the Sylvia character further in this latest adventure with Sylvia having learned so much from her first adventure. I also loved seeing my favorite secondary characters back again like Neptune and especially Pika. Vallere also introduces some great new characters that add to the story. "I'm Your Venus" captures the reader's attention from the very beginning and never lets go. The book is full of many twists and turns, and I loved how Vallere opened up even new mysteries for Sylvia's next adventure. Overall "I'm Your Venus" is a great read that I would most definitely recommend, and I can't wait to check out Sylvia's next adventure.

    Received a copy of "I'm your Venus" from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    The Sylvia Stryker cozy mystery series is like nothing out there. It is set in outer space and reads like a fast paced action filled episode of your favorite Sci Fi Tv Show or movie. The pure enjoyment and imagination in this book, which is book two, takes you on Moon Unit 6. Moon Unit 6 is like a space cruise and we are reacquainted with Sylvia Stryker who is the Uniform Lieutenant on board Moon Unit 6. After some bad press with Moon Unit 5 the Moon Unit owners have a contest and pick a contest

    The Sylvia Stryker cozy mystery series is like nothing out there. It is set in outer space and reads like a fast paced action filled episode of your favorite Sci Fi Tv Show or movie. The pure enjoyment and imagination in this book, which is book two, takes you on Moon Unit 6. Moon Unit 6 is like a space cruise and we are reacquainted with Sylvia Stryker who is the Uniform Lieutenant on board Moon Unit 6. After some bad press with Moon Unit 5 the Moon Unit owners have a contest and pick a contest winner hours after the voyage to Venus begins the contest winner Xina is found by Sylvia, Murdered. It is up to Sylvia with her friends Zeke, Pika and Neptune to find out who killed Xina and why.

    This book is insanely well plotted and with every Diane Vallere book it is fantastically written. Diane has a way with creating strong female characters and creating intrigue. They are well written and well worth time and money. You will never be disappointed with any of her books and I’m Your Venus is no exception.

    Synopsis: When Sylvia Stryker boards Moon Unit 6 as uniform lieutenant, it’s with an eye on the future. After space pirates destroyed her life, the trek to Venus provides a fresh start. But when the winner of the promotional contest designed to hype the trip is found dead outside the uniform ward, sleuthing takes top priority.

    The amorous effect of Venus on the already frisky passengers threaten to compromise the investigation—not to mention the victim’s secret relationship with Sylvia’s boss. Forward thinking, back channels, and distractions on the side lead Sylvia on a pulse-pounding probe that exposes a murderer along with the surprising truth about her past.

    I just finished “I’m Your Venus”, the latest entry in the “Space Case” series by Diane Vallere, and I enjoyed it just as much as the first book. All of the characters I liked in the first book have returned, including Neptune, the head of security, Sylvia, the uniform officer slash moonlighting security officer, Pika, the mischievous stowaway, and Doc Edison, the, um, doctor. The gang is back on another Moon Trek, heading to Venus, and hoping to erase the disastrous vibes from the previous Trek

    I just finished “I’m Your Venus”, the latest entry in the “Space Case” series by Diane Vallere, and I enjoyed it just as much as the first book. All of the characters I liked in the first book have returned, including Neptune, the head of security, Sylvia, the uniform officer slash moonlighting security officer, Pika, the mischievous stowaway, and Doc Edison, the, um, doctor. The gang is back on another Moon Trek, heading to Venus, and hoping to erase the disastrous vibes from the previous Trek but unfortunately, another passenger dies, an even more high-profile death than last time.

    It once again falls to Sylvia to figure out who the murderer is while avoiding being murdered herself and this time she has the support of the ship’s crew but the passengers are a different story. The Martians are worse than after school bullies, and the rest of the voyagers are becoming overly amorous the closer they come to Venus. It was lots of fun to spend more time with these characters and seeing the dropped breadcrumbs that are leading to the inevitable family reunion in the third book.

    There was a point I’m not as thrilled by though. There seems to be a romantic attraction between Sylvia and Neptune whereas I was hoping their connection would be more of a mentorship and friendship. I’m not a fan of every guy and girl flirting and hooking up just because that’s what normally happens in a story. It would be nice to see some different dynamics between people. It’s probably just me and my affection for the Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin relationship in Peter O’Donnell’s adventure series but not everything needs to be a potentially romantic situation. Still, if Neptune and Sylvia do end up together I won’t hate it, it just won’t surprise me.

    This was a nice entry in the trilogy (?) and I’m eager to spend more time with the characters. I like that Sylvia is in control and self-sufficient, Neptune is a shrewd and stoic slab of muscle who has depths still waiting to be plumbed, and the secondary characters are enjoyable as well (although I hope that Pika doesn’t devolve into being a Bat Mite annoyance to the grown-ups in the book.) I curious to see how everything gets wrapped up in the next book. I have some guesses as to what will happen but I might be wrong. That is the fun of reading a mystery – you don’t know if you have everything figured out until the last chapter is done.

    Sylvia Stryker is ready for Moon Unit 6 to take off for Venus. This time everything is all legal and aboveboard, and she is ready to do her job. Unfortunately it doesn't take long for things to go wrong-including finding Pika being attacked by Martians, and a dead body by the laundry cart outside of Sylvia's laundry. The fact that the body is that of the contest winner and Neptune's sister only makes things worse. How does Sylvia get in these predicaments???

    Diane Vallere has written the second book in this out of this world series, and it has some old and some new characters. Diane never ceases to amaze me with her ability to create a space ship and characters from all different planets. From names to occupations to character traits, the reader is kept guessing throughout the book. One thing you do not have to guess however, is whether or not the book will be good. Anything and everything she writes is a treat to read with plenty of action and excitement. If you missed the first book in the series (Fly Me To The Moon)pick up a copy and read that first, because the books are more fun when read in order!

    This is a fun, and entertaining book that I didn’t want to put down. This siory kept me on the edge of my seat in suspense and anticipation. I enjoyed following along as the mystery was unraveled. A great story.

    “I’m Your Venus” by Diane Vallere is the second intergalactic adventure in the “Sylvia Stryker Space Case” series. It is not necessary to have read the previous book to enjoy this one, but the series is fun and quick to read, so new readers might want to pick up first book as well.

    “I’m Your Venus” by Diane Vallere is the second intergalactic adventure in the “Sylvia Stryker Space Case” series. It is not necessary to have read the previous book to enjoy this one, but the series is fun and quick to read, so new readers might want to pick up first book as well.

    The story is told as a first person narrative by Lieutenant second class Sylvia Stryker, and she shares her reminisces of the previous book to fill things in for new readers as well as her thoughts, observations, hopes, and anxieties about the current trip, the current crew, and life in general. Lt. Stryker is an employee of Moon Unit Corporation, a giant in the tourist industry taking advantage of that sense of adventure to send its customers to the far reaches of the galaxy on journeys of exploration and vacation. Her job is uniforms, and she plans an uneventful trip.

    The company struggled after the unfortunate occurrences on the previous Moon Unit excursion. This trip on Moon Unit 6, the latest and most advanced spaceship in the company’s fleet, was heralded with an intense public relations campaign and a sweepstakes that promised the winners “the adventure of a lifetime.” The ship is docked, and the winners and their families are gathered by the boarding station. Thus, the customers, the contest winners, and the readers are ready to embark on a trip to Venus. Stryker is hard at work in the in Uniform ward.

    Of course, things go wrong right from the start. The noise of the parting celebration on the observation deck is drowned out by an explosion on the docking deck below. The routine yet potentially perilous trip to Venus begins with a bang.

    This is a relaxed, cozy book with some trauma, a little drama, and some romance. All the cute and not so cute creatures make appearances, and of course, the evil Martians are thrown in because they are just everywhere. The characters have universal appeal in a familiar, crazy, mixed-up, outer space way but with glitter.

    I received a copy of “I’m Your Venus” from Diane Vallere and Polyester Press. It is entertaining book with some mystery but no headache-inducing stress. We know more adventures are yet to come. After all, don’t we all need sparkles on our skin sometimes?

    Sylvia Stryker has landed a job on the new Moon 6. Again, she's in charge of the uniform department, but this time she's legitimately on the ship. Neptune is also on board this cruise, with the destination being Venus. Everyone is determined to make things go smoothly for the passengers. However, the ship has barely set out when Sylvia finds a dead body outside the uniform department's door. Then Neptune comes to her with a surprising plea for help. Can she figure out what is going on?

    Yes, this

    Yes, this book has a science fiction setting, but it is still mostly a mystery. In fact, the setting is developed just enough for us to feel at home, but the story doesn't stop to explain every little detail to us. Still, there are some fun nod to pop culture science fiction and some of the tech they do have in this book would be very cool. There are a trio of characters we spent a lot of time with, and they are the best developed. The rest of the cast is still strong enough for the parts they play in what happens. The plot is quite a ride, with plenty of keep us engaged and the pages flying. I read the book in just two days, in fact. I do feel like some of the character's actions over the course of the book weren't completely explained at the end, but that is my only complaint. I'm looking forward to getting to book three as soon as my schedule allows to see how some of the threads introduced here play out.
