Release Date: October 29, 2019Actual Rating: 4 stars Southern Cozy Mystery | First in a new series I am loving that Tonya Kappes is writing an original cozy mystery series which features a mail carrier as the sleuth! Bernadette is a wonderful character and I enjoyed “meeting her” in the first book in the Mail Carrier series, Stamped Out! […]

Culinary Cozy Mystery Vivien Chien cooks up another scrumptious mystery in Wonton Terror! This series is one of my favorites. The heroine is a spicy little thing that defies everything her heritage stands for. Sure, she appreciates her roots but she certainly isn’t the demur little thing that many may associate her character with. I […]

Peach Clobbered by Anna Gerard

Peach Clobbered is the first book in the Georgia B&B mystery series. My first impressions after reading this one is that it is a cute book but not enough sleuthing going on. For me, the sleuthing aspect is an integral part of a cozy mystery and this one fell very flat in this area. I […]

Pruning the Dead is the first book in the Garden Squad Mystery series and it has become a top favorite of mine! This is the first cozy I have come across in a long time that felt more serious. I also think I learned quite a bit about gardening (my green thumb is horrible), so […]

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 […]

READ MY BOOK REVIEW Motorhomes, Maps, & Murder is the 5th addition to the Camper & Criminals cozy mystery series. I recommend reading all these books in order. If you are a kindle unlimited subscriber you can read this series for FREE (and I highly recommend it). That being said, this is another fantastic novel […]

It’s Your Party, Die If You Want To by Vickie Fee

It’s Your Party, Die If You Want To by Vickie Fee

Short Review: I enjoyed this book. It’s got action, a cool sleuth, and great party planning ideas. However, some aspects of the book were a bit slow for me and I couldn’t have cared less to continue reading it or not. It’s just not one of those books that leave you eager for more. That said, […]

I love this series so much!!! The books covers, the characters, the sleuthing, the setting, the banter, and everything in between is perfect. Tonya Kappes has a knack for cozy mysteries and I have recently become a huge fan of her books. In fact, I loved this series so much that I grabbed the first […]

Another enjoyable cozy mystery from Lillian Bell! I really like this series. The fact that it’s set around a funeral parlor (with the heroine working there with her family) is quite original. Even more, the characters are top notch. Desiree Turner is quickly becoming one of my favorite sleuths and I know I am going […]

The second book in the Secret Book and Scone Society was a hit for me. I felt the pacing in the first book was really slow but it certainly picked up in this book. This review will be short because I honestly cannot remember too much about the book as I read it a while […]

This series is my guilty pleasure! I love everything about it- the setting, the characters, the mysteries, and the charm! Tonya Kappes is still a fairly new author to me but right now I am absolutely hooked to her stories. She writes these books with exquisite detail and brings her characters to life. I wouldn’t […]

Mini Review This is not my favorite Charlaine Harris novel. However, it is a good and quick read if your looking for something light and are a fan of the author (as I am). I really wanted to love this one because I really love the Sookie Stackhouse series AND the Harper Connelly series. But […]
