Southern Discomfort by Caroline Fardig – Review

Southern Discomfort by Caroline Fardig – Review

My Thoughts

Southern Discomfort by Caroline Fardig is the first book in the Southern B&B Mystery series. I absolutely loved the Southern setting. Savannah, Georgia comes to life in this charming B&B with the Bellandini sisters, Papa Sal, and others. This colorful cast of characters, featuring Quinn and her sister Delilah, must figure out who killed a local restaurant owner. His brother (and Quinn’s friend) has been arrested for the crime, but Quinn knows he’s innocent…and she isn’t about to stand by while he sits in jail.

The mystery had a great twist at the end. The characters really brought this story together. I loved the touch of paranormal hinted at as well. I thought I had things figured out, …

My Thoughts

Ginger Snapped by Gail Oust

Ginger Snapped by Gail Oust

Ginger Snapped by Gail Oust is the fifth book in the Spice Shop Mystery Series. For the past three years, I have started out each new year with Gail’s new book being my first book of the year. 🙂 I’ve come to look forward to spending the new year with Piper, Reba Mae, Wyatt, and the rest of the gang in Brandywine Creek. I found myself laughing out loud and sleuthing right along with Piper. This book is one of those mysteries that you just have a blast reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I am going to make it a point to go back and read books 1 & 2 since I haven’t read them yet. …
