Deadly Vows by Jody Holford

I love the Britton Bay mystery series by Jody Holford! It’s charming, unpredictable, and a whole lot of fun! There’s even a blossoming romance within it that will make any reader smile! Deadly Vows is the second book in the series and I recommend reading all the books in order as they follow the same sleuth (just different murder mysteries). In this one, a wedding has come to the town of Britton Bay! Normally, weddings are supposed to be fun and full of love and adoration, but when people push their own ideals on what the wedding is supposed to look like and hire over the top celebrity chefs things get a little… wild. That’s not all though. A murder shocks not only the town […]

The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth

The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth

The Mother-in-Law is an EXCELLENT domestic drama and reads like a Liane Moriarty book (The Husbands Secret, Big Little Lies, etc.) Obviously, I really loved this one. It took me a little while to finish it though because I have been in a huge book slump lately, but I always found myself wanting to get back into reading this one. Therefore, if a book is good enough to take you out of the dreaded slump then you know it’s good! This is the first book I have read by Sally Hepworth, but it will not be my last. I am so excited to read her blacklist of novels based on this one.  I went into this book thinking it was going to be like other […]

Death by Committee by Alexis Morgan

Death by Committee is the first book in the Abbey Mcree mystery and I found it to be an impressive debut in the series! I devoured this book. It’s such a fun mystery with awesome characters and an engaging mystery. There’s even a blooming romance! If you are looking for a new cozy mystery series to try I recommend this book. The second one will be out on August 27th and I am so excited to read it (the cover is super cute too).  In this book readers will meet Abbey, Tripp, and the ladies of the quilting guild. I don’t know if this book will revolve around a quilting theme but I thought it was cute and I have never read one with it […]

The Hidden Corpse by Debra Sennefelder

The Hidden Corpse is a fantastic cozy mystery! I devoured this book in a day because I didn’t want to stop reading it. I loved everything about it – the characters, the mystery, the setting, everything! Debra Sennefelder is a new author to be but you can expect me to read everything she writes after this one. She has a way with words that just make readers WANT to read. I am so thrilled! If you are a fan of cozy mysteries, this is a must read book (and series) for you. Luckily, there are currently only two books in the series so readers who haven’t can easily read the two before more are released. I am so excited for the next one! I highly […]

Her Best Friend’s Secret by Anna Mansell

Her Best Friend’s Secret   by Anna Mansell

Her Best Friend’s Secret is an excellent read, one that kept me entranced for hours. I actually devoured this book in one day because I needed to know the secret that lay hidden between these women’s lives. Told in alternating POV’s, readers will get in depth knowledge into the psych of all four friends. These ladies are relatable, realistic, and wonderful to get to know. Some aspects of the story though aren’t pretty, but it’s nice to see that flaws effectseveryone.  This is my first Anna Mansell novel and it certainly won’t be my last. If you enjoy women’s fiction novels- those that revolve around friendships, secrets, and some betrayal, this is a must read for you. I know many readers are going to really […]

Deadly Deception by Kate Parker

Deadly Deception is the 4th book in the Deadly series. If you are interested in reading the series you can follow this link to amazon to find out more about it [amazon link]. This is a very clever series, one that kept me entranced throughout my reading. I love the historical elements- I have been on a historical kick lately- and the action and adventure that Olivia finds herself a part of. Overall, this book fits in well with the series, has a wonderful cast of characters, and kept my rapt attention throughout the story. I couldn’t put the book down because of  how interesting I found it to be! If you are a fan of historical cozy mysteries with a ton of action, this book […]

Murder Lo Mein by Vivien Chien

Murder Lo Mein by Vivien Chien

Murder Lo Mein is the third book in the Noodle Shop mystery series and I think it’s my favorite to date! This could be due to the fact that I love Lo Mein… In any event, this is another fantastic addition to the series and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a culinary cozy, Chinese food, and murder! In Murder Lo Mein, readers will become reacquainted with Lana Lee, the Noodle House (her family business), and a slew of amazing secondary characters. Things are going great in Lana’s life- she has a new boyfriend (Detective Trudeau), she’s finally feeling at home when shes working in her family business (she wasn’t excited about it at first), and her restaurant is taking part in a […]
