The Cosy Teashop in the Castle by Caroline Roberts

This is a charming chick lit novel that I thoroughly enjoyed! The characters are super sweet and life like (Ellie is a woman after my own heart), the setting is beautiful (a lovely castle in the countryside) and the plot is well thought out, original, and sweet. Having not read a chick lit in a while, I am so glad I jumped right into this one. It makes me want to continue reading this genre (as it has always been a top favorite) and find more books by the author.  The story is about a woman named Ellie who opens up a tearoom in a castle in order to turn a mundane life into a fun filled one doing what she loves. Her tearoom is […]

A High-End Finish by Kate Carlisle

I love a good cozy mystery so I was thrilled when I saw this one on sale for $1.99. So thrilled in fact that I gobbled it up as fast as I could! A High-End Finish is the first book in the series. There are a few more that have been released after this one, so if your looking for a new cozy series to get into this would be a good one as there aren’t too many books to catch up with. Also, Kate Carlisle does a fantastic job at mixing a little bit of romance with a great mystery. So, you can’t go wrong with this one if you are a fan of one or both of these genres! In this installment, readers […]

Too Many Crooks Spoil the Plot by Sarah Osborne

Too Many Crooks Spoil the Plot is the first book in the Ditie Brown Mystery series. As with all cozies, there is a murder, a sleuthing woman hellbent on finding the killer (sometimes a male, but mostly women), and some twists and turns. For the most part, I did enjoy reading this one. I liked the characters and setting. However, this book didn’t feel lighthearted like most cozies. There was a ton of emotion wrapped into the book as the sleuth becomes a guardian for her friends children who happened to be the victim of the story. So not only was she trying to solve her friends murder but she was also thrust into a mothering role herself for the kids. This is all original […]
