Stolen Daughters by Carolyn Arnold

Stolen Daughters by Carolyn Arnold

My Thoughts

Stolen Daughters by Carolyn Arnold is the second book in the Detective Amanda Steele mystery series. I loved the first book and was definitely looking forward to reading this one. Ms. Arnold did not disappoint! This book was full of action and suspense. Stolen Daughters feels like an episode of Criminal Minds. Once I started reading, I didn’t want to put it down. If you love crime shows and suspenseful stories that keep you guessing until the end, you need to read Stolen Daughters.

I’ve read and enjoyed many books by Ms. Arnold – she has a knack for writing books that draw the reader in right away and don’t let go until the conclusion. I’m happy to have …

18 1/2 Disguises by Larissa Reinhart – Slow-Cooked Roast Beef Debris Po’ Boys + Giveaway

18 1/2 Disguises by Larissa Reinhart – Slow-Cooked Roast Beef Debris Po’ Boys + Giveaway

Slow-Cooked Roast Beef Debris Po’ Boys

Although this isn’t a culinary cozy mystery, the Maizie Albright Star Detective series is set in Georgia and gives me an excuse to write about my favorite Southern foods. My ex-actress turned private investigator loves to eat, particularly now that she’s off-screen and doesn’t have to worry as much about her weight.

In 18 1/2 Disguises, one of the foods I describe her and a police detective eating is Debris Po’ Boys. This is a Cajun-style roast beef sandwich and I think, super delicious. I’ve had all kinds of po’ boys, but this is my favorite. It also fits with the season for the setting of 18 1/2 Disguises, in February, around Mardi Gras.

Aloe and Goodbye by Janice Peacock – Review & Giveaway

Aloe and Goodbye by Janice Peacock – Review & Giveaway

My Thoughts

Aloe and Goodbye by Janice Peacock is the first book in the new Ruby Shaw Mysteries series. This was such an exciting book! I absolutely loved the premise. From the moment I read that Ruby and her daughter were in witness protection, I wondered how in the world the author would pull off telling the story. I didn’t know if she would be able to have Ruby involved in a crime without blowing her cover.

The author did not disappoint. I loved that the story still felt light even with the gritty subject matter…after all, to be in WITSEC, usually something terrible has happened. I really, really liked Ruby and I loved the setting of Paradise, Arizona. This …
