Murder, She Wrote: The Ghost and Mrs. Fletcher – Review @BerkleyPub

Murder, She Wrote: The Ghost and Mrs. Fletcher – Review @BerkleyPub

The Ghost and Mrs. Fletcher

I love the television show Murder, She Wrote. It’s always been one of my favorites. I have a few of the books in the series, penned by Jessica Fletcher (of course!), Donald Bain and Renee Paley-Bain. This is the first one that I’ve read and I can’t believe I’ve waited this long. The Ghost and Mrs. Fletcher is a great mystery.

When a life-long resident of Cabot Cove, Cliff Cooper, is convinced he will die soon, he asks Jessica to make sure his house is sold and his grandson inherits the money. There were so many twists and turns in this book that I couldn’t put it down. Strange noises in the house make it seem like …

Review: A Dark and Stormy Murder by Julia Buckley

Review: A Dark and Stormy Murder by Julia Buckley

I checked this book out from the library to read. My review is not influenced in any way. This post contains Amazon affiliate links; thank you for supporting Brooke Blogs.

My Review

A Dark and Stormy Murder by Julia Buckley is the first book in the Writer’s Apprentice Mystery series. This is one of the absolute best cozy mysteries I have ever read. Seriously. It is so good.

Lena London can hardly believe it when she gets the opportunity to interview for a position with her favorite author of all time. Lena is an author also, and it turns out that she and Camilla Graham are the perfect pair. I absolutely adore Lena and Camilla. They write so well together …

My Review

Dying for Data by Cassidy Salem is the second installment in the Adina Donati, Accidental Sleuth cozy mystery series. The series is set in Washington DC and features think tank employee Adina Donati. Adina has a knack for getting wrapped up in mysteries.

Adina has had a few dates with both of the interested guys in her life. In fact, she is on a date with Bruce when the police show up and begin questioning restaurant patrons about a violent crime.

Think Murder by Cassidy Salem – Review

Think Murder by Cassidy Salem – Review

My Book Review

Think Murder by Cassidy Salem is the first book in the Adina Donati, Accidental Sleuth mystery series. I received this book for review since I am reviewing the second book for a blog tour. I thought the plot sounded good and I was looking forward to a Washington DC set mystery.

Adina finds herself wrapped up in the murder of a coworker. At first, no one can figure out why the victim was killed or who would want to do that to her. As the plot unfolds, it seems there is more than meets the eye in this case. Adina is right in the thick of things and is in danger herself.

I like the characters and the setting of …

Kissing Under the Mistletoe by Marina Adair #Review @MarinaEAdair

Kissing Under the Mistletoe by Marina Adair #Review @MarinaEAdair

Kissing Under the Mistletoe by Marina Adair features one of my favorite romance tropes: enemies to lovers. I couldn’t wait to visit St. Helena and get to know these characters, especially the sexy DeLuca brothers. Regan and Holly are such a lovely little family, and my heart was on edge waiting for their HEA.

Marina pens a holiday romance that had me laughing, cursing and crying. When the hero & the heroine are stubborn, sparks are sure to fly. This hot Christmas love story left me with a smile on my face~and a desire to never leave St. Helena. ๐Ÿ™‚ I will be reading the next in this series soon. If you love hot holiday romances with characters who are feisty …

Good as Gone by Amy Gentry – #Review

Good as Gone by Amy Gentry – #Review

Good as Gone by Amy Gentry
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Good as Gone by Amy Gentry is a fast-paced read. The first part of the book, I was totally sucked in~I didn’t want to put it down until I finished. Around a third of the way into the story, things seemed to get confusing. There were chapters interspersed that were told from differing points of view. I struggled a bit through the middle of the book because of this~however, I still wanted to finish the book. The last part of the book was really well done. I liked how the story unfolded, and we were able to understand it more layer by …
