The First Mistake by Sandie Jones

The First Mistake is an edge of your seat domestic drama/thriller that had me turning the pages as fast as I could. The book was surprisingly puzzling to me, and thankfully I went into it blind otherwise I think it would have taken away from my reading experience had I already known what was happening going in. I suggest readers who enjoyed The Other Woman […]

Southern Sass and Killer Cravings by Kate Young

Southern Sass and Killer Cravings is the first book in a brand new cozy mystery series. This book fits in perfectly with other culinary cozies and even some paranormal as our MC is being “haunted” by her dead mother. I use quotes around haunted because there is nothing malevolent about it, just that her mother who has passed is speaking to her about the murder […]

Passion on Park Avenue by Lauren Layne

Passion on Park Avenue is the first book in the Central Park Pact! Each of the books in the series CAN stand alone as they feature different characters however, I recommend reading this one FIRST as you get to know how these ladies became friends. Also, it’s such a cute story that I don’t think readers are going to want to miss it! That being […]

No-One Ever Has Sex On A Tuesday by Tracy Bloom

This is a really cute book. I have been reading a ton of romances that deal with heavy topics lately and I needed something to wind down with. This book worked! No-One Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday is a humorous chick lit novel (although I found the last 50% of the book to be much funnier than the first 50%). This is a novel […]

Hitches, Hideouts, & Homicides by Tonya Kappes

Visiting Normal, Kentucky is always a wonderful experience! Tonya Kappes writes the heck out of this town and I love everything; the characters, the setting, the mystery, and even the romance that is beginning to form nicely between Hank and Mae. If there were ever a fictional town I would be able to visit this would be it- hands down! The people of Normal are […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Leave No Scone Unturned by Denise Swanson

Leave No Scone Unturned is the second book in the Chef-to-Go mystery series! One of my favorite things about this series is how Denise Swanson makes the murder so complex. They aren’t your average mysteries where it’s easy to spot the killer and the actual murders that take place are big deals. It’s not over something small. This makes the stories much more intriguing and […]

Canyons, Caravans, & Cadavers by Tonya Kappes

Canyons, Caravans, & Cadavers is the 6th book in the Camper & Criminals cozy mystery series! This series is a must read and one that I can’t help but devour. These characters are some of the best I have read and I feel a deep connection with them all. Normal Kentucky is also an amazing fictional town. I can almost smell the flowers and feel […]

One Potato, Two Potato, Dead by Lynn Cahoon

One Potato, Two Potato, Dead is the third installment in the Farm-to-Fork mystery series! Lynn Cahoon is a wonderful mystery writer and I am always anxious for her next novel (especially within this series). She makes her characters lovable, tough, and charming. With that being said, I truly love this series and think this is the perfect addition. While I wish there were more recipes […]

Trouble on the Books by Essie Lang

Trouble on the Books is the first book in a brand new cozy mystery series! This book features a heroine who has just opened up a new bookstore in her hometown of Alexandria Bay. While this is interesting in itself (us bookworms LOVE bookstores), it’s even cooler to see that this bookstore is in a castle! I love stories with original settings and this is […]

Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop by Rebecca Raisin

What a lovely story! I don’t recall reading a book by Rebecca Raisin but that will certainly change once she releases more books. I really enjoyed this one. The author incorporated delicious desserts and teas while showing us that sometimes change isn’t a bad thing. I think any reader who is in need of a pick me up should check out Rosie’s Traveling Tea Shop. […]
