Death by Coffee by Alex Erickson

I loved Death by Coffee by Alex Erickson even though many readers were on the fence with this one. There’s just something about coffee and books (which are a prominent part of this series) that sucks me in! Anyway, I never wrote a formal review of this novel on goodreads so I can’t remember that much about the book (what you need to know about […]

Killer Green Tomatoes by Lynn Cahoon

Lynn Cahoon is still a fairly new author to me, but she is quickly climbing into one of my favorite cozy authors. Her characters just seem to speak to me. They are realistic, relatable, and easy to love. The mysteries aren’t cheesy like some cozies out there, and are fun to solve right along with the characters. My only issue, and really it’s an issue […]

Death on Tap by Ellie Alexander

Death on Tap is the first (right?) book in a brand new cozy mystery series. And you know what? I am really excited about this one because aside from the mystery aspects, these books revolve around beer brewing which is really cool. I can’t think of any other cozies that are like this, so it is definitely unique and stands apart from others in the […]

Who Moved My Goat Cheese? by Lynn Cahoon

I really enjoyed this first book in the Farm-to-Fork Mystery series. The concept is a really neat one and something I haven’t seen before so it made the book original. The characters are very likable as well making it for easy reading. I look forward to reading the second book in the series once it is released.  As stated above, this is the first book […]

The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews

This is the perfect beach read! Mary Kay Andrews has the unique ability to hook her readers into her stories from the get-go and this is no different with her newest novel, The Weekenders! Having read nearly all of her books, I knew when I saw this one that I had to read it. And I am so glad that I did because I absolutely […]

Skinny Dipping with Murder by Auralee Wallace

This is the first book in the Otter Lake Mystery series. It’s a hilarious cozy mystery with the type of characters one could easily become best friends with and takes place in an richly described environment. I adored this book and laughed out loud more times than I can count! If you are a cozy mystery junkie and/or love the genre, this is a must have for you! As […]

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

This book is CLASSIC Sophie Kinsella and I loved every minute of it! Not since she released the Shopaholic series have I gotten so excited about one of her novels (although frankly, they are all great in their own way), but after reading this one, I know why I am so in love with her books. Sophie has weaved a story that will make readers […]

Cremains of the Day by Misty Simon

Cremains of the Day is a good start to a brand new cozy mystery series. Misty Simon is a talented author and this is clearly shown through her writing style and storytelling abilities. I enjoyed her characters- especially our sleuth, Tallulah Graver. She’s a fun piece of work and her ability to overcome such adversary in her life post divorce is commendable. The mystery was […]

The Secret, Book and Scone Society is the first in a brand new cozy mystery series from Ellery Adams. Readers will be introduced to the beautiful setting of this charming small town and meet 4 women who become close friends over a murder that occurs in their town. In an essence, this is what starts their little group of amateur investigating, the secret book and […]

Sunshine After the Rain by Daisy James

Sunshine After the Rain by Daisy James is a fun little book that I really enjoyed reading. There are books out there that are sure to lift your spirits, and readers, this is one of them! One of my favorite things when reading this one is that I was able to be transported into a lovely setting. The author does a wonderful job at essentially […]

The Quiche and the Dead by Kristen Weiss

The Quiche and the Dead is the first book in a brand new mystery series by Kristen Weiss. It’s an enjoyable “who-dun-it” with delicious recipes and a fantastic set of characters. Readers may not have a hard time figuring out the person behind the murders, but this doesn’t take away from the story especially considering the fact that you won’t figure out WHY they happened […]

Spring at Blueberry Bay by Holly Martin

Awe! This is such a sweet and lovely read that it left me with the biggest smile when I finished it. Now, while a familiar trope is used in the story (a sort of co-workers/office romance) the author presented it in a unique and utterly charming way! I won’t spoil the story for you so that’s all I will say on that topic, but I […]

Curves, Kisses, and Chocolate Ice-Cream by Sue Watson

Curves, Kisses, and Chocolate Ice-Cream is a fun summer romp and perfect for any woman’s beach bag. That said, it is the second book in the Ice-Cream Cafe series but can be read as a complete standalone. For those who enjoy the chick lit and women’s fiction genre, this would be the perfect fit for you! It’s a relatable tale about a “curvier” woman who […]
