Trawling for Trouble by Shelley Freydont – Review + Giveaway

Trawling for Trouble by Shelley Freydont – Review + Giveaway

Trawling for Trouble by Shelley Freydont is a novella in the Celebration Bay Mystery series. I have not read the other books in this series yet. Right away, I liked Liv Montgomery. She is trying to learn how to fish from Chaz, when she reels in a body. The mystery starts from the very beginning. I enjoyed the back-and-forth between Chaz and Liz. The author does a nice job with diving right into the mystery and plays out the mystery really well for a novella. This cozy is well-written. I enjoyed Trawling for Trouble by Shelley Freydont and I look forward to going back and reading the Celebration Bay Mystery series from the beginning.

Caught Read-Handed by Terrie Farley Moran – Review + Giveaway

Caught Read-Handed by Terrie Farley Moran is the second book in the Read ‘Em and Eat Mystery series. I enjoyed book one in the series, and I couldn’t wait to read another book set in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Sassy keeps finding herself in trouble – right in the middle of murder investigations. Once she is embroiled in the investigation, it seems she can’t help herself but to get involved and start sleuthing.

There are a lot of things I really like about this series. The setting is wonderful. Every time Sassy and Bridgy talk about the Read ‘Em and Eat I just wanna hop in my car and drive right on down to Fort Myers Beach for …

Murder on the Bucket List by Elizabeth Perona
A Bucket List Mystery #1

The septuagenarian women of the Summer Ridge Bridge Club have gathered in secret late one July night to check skinny dipping off their bucket list. But as Francine observes, the jittery members seem more obsessed with body issues and elaborate preparations than actually stripping down and getting in the pool. A pungent smell emanating from the pool shed provides a perfect distraction. When a dead body flops out, it’s an answered prayer for Charlotte, since the first item on her list is to solve a murder.

Unfortunately for Charlotte and Francine, before they can discover who really killed the man, they must negotiate neighborhood tours of the crime …
