Review: An Artless Demise (Lady Darby Mystery #7) by Anna Lee Huber

Lady Darby has been a favorite heroine of mine for some time now. I only recently discovered the series a couple of years ago, but from the moment I started reading The Anatomist’s Wife, I was completely in love with her character.

Reviewing this book was a no brainer. I have loved watching this series evolve and progress, shifting from mystery, to romantic suspense, and back to more mystery and I have loved every single book. Plus Huber is a wonderful writer with many of her books ranking highly on my recommended list!

I have recommended all of her books to everyone I know and have loved seeing friends and family fall in love not only with Lady Darby but with Verity Kent as well! Each could be read as a stand alone book in my opinion as the author does a great job orientating the reader within the story and the character backstories, so if you have your eye on this book but haven’t read the others, don’t fret you won’t be horribly lost.

Review: Royal Flush (Her Royal Spyness #3) by Rhys Bowen

My goal this spring is to get through this entire series before the next book is out this summer. I started with the last book in this series before I read any others so obviously I was more than a little out of the loop with the last book, but that didn’t make it ant less enjoyable and fun to read.

But I felt like I was doing not only the author a disservice not reading the entire series, but I felt like I was doing myself a huge disservice. So I finally, finally finally, after years of having the first book forced upon me—-read the first book in the series.

In short I loved it. So I decided to continue through the entire series book by book which isn’t too bad because they are super fast reads. So here we are, three books in so far. Continue reading “Review: Royal Flush (Her Royal Spyness #3) by Rhys Bowen”

Review: A Royal Pain (Her Royal Spyness #2) by Rhys Bowen

As you might have guessed, I am burning my way through this series at an alarming rate. Not even half way through the first book, I had to order the rest of the books in the series because I knew that I would be reading all of them in a matter of weeks.

I have read the latest book in this series, Four Weddings and Maybe a Funeral (the last book to date)….I know—don’t ask me why but I read them completely out of order and I figured that I better remedy that situation and start from the beginning.

But I wasn’t expecting to love this series as much as I do! The books are easy breezy reads and I have no trouble racing through them in a matter of days. They are interesting and simply fun! Continue reading “Review: A Royal Pain (Her Royal Spyness #2) by Rhys Bowen”

Review: Her Royal Spyness (Her Royal Spyness #1) by Rhys Bowen

People. It finally happened.

I have had gifted Her Royal Spyness by my mom at least 4 times. Yes I have 4 copies of this book on my book shelf at any given time. I have read a number of Bowen’s books and I comment every single time about how I haven’t read this series.

I recently read Four Weddings and Maybe a Funeral…..which was the last book in the series. Talk about late to the party. I thought it was a great read but obviously I was missing a huge back story between Darcy and Georgie. I vowed then that I would remedy that situation and read Her Royal Spyness.

And then I didn’t.

Flash forward to a few weeks ago. I had been knee deep in some heavy duty books both in length and content and I just needed a break. Something easy, fast paced, and generally relaxing. I finally—finally—after a number of years (eight by my count), picked up this book to read. Continue reading “Review: Her Royal Spyness (Her Royal Spyness #1) by Rhys Bowen”

Review: Murder Lo Mein (A Noodle Shop Mystery #3) by Vivien Chien

I discovered Lana Lee and the Noodle Shop Mystery series just over a year ago and frankly I paid yes to the first book because I loved the Chinese take out container on the front—-it made me hungry. I am seriously motivated by food, it’s embarrassing!

But, that cute little Chinese container book contained a rather interesting mystery and a hysterical leading lady in Lana Lee. I was eager for the next book and found it equally enjoyable.

So here we are with the third book and the fourth due out this summer. I was absolutely on board with reading the third book. How could I not love this series with food on the cover and creatively named titles based on Chinese food?! Personally, I don’t like Chinese food, but Ho Lee Noodle House makes me want to eat all the Chinese food! Continue reading “Review: Murder Lo Mein (A Noodle Shop Mystery #3) by Vivien Chien”
