Special Feature/Excerpt: Paw of the Jungle (Paw Enforcement #8) by Diane Kelly

If there is a way to tempt me with a book, it’s to slap a dog on the front cover. I adore books that feature my favorite fury friends and this book was no exception.

I thought the cover was adorable and the series sounded fun and light. I love mysteries that incorporate animals but at times it’s admittedly hard to do animal detectives well.

Diane Kelly has clearly been doing something right as this is the 8th book in the series and it has a large fan base. I am thrilled to be able to bring a special sneak peak to all of my lovely readers today! Continue reading “Special Feature/Excerpt: Paw of the Jungle (Paw Enforcement #8) by Diane Kelly”

Review: Lady Takes the Case (Manor Cat Mystery #1) by Eliza Casey

As soon as this book appeared on my desk I was eager to read it. I thought the cover was pretty and I love lady detective novels so basically this book was a must read for me.

I was looking for something light and just fun since I had come off reading a few heaver read, it sounded perfect.

This book boasts a well known romance writer writing under a pseudonym, though we are never told who the well known writer is. I was curious to see how that translated into a mystery novel, and I was admittedly even more curious about who said writer was.

Review: A Noël Killing (Verlaque and Bonnet #8) by M.L. Longworth

The Verlaque and Bonnet series is one that I came into a little late, but have always enjoyed the mysteries. They have a sophisticated feel to them but they still manage to maintain their charm.

I think one of the things that always keeps this series in the forefront of my mind is the covers. The covers are incredible and eye catching. Every time I see one I instantly think, ‘oh yes another Verlaque and Bonnet mystery!‘. The covers are so recognizable and admittedly why I picked up the series in the first place. This book features the new redesigned covers and while I think it’s a pretty design, it doesn’t stand out to me.

Maybe that’s because I am so used to the old covers. But at any rate don’t let the aesthetics fool you, this is a great series that I’ve been looking forward to picking back up! Continue reading “Review: A Noël Killing (Verlaque and Bonnet #8) by M.L. Longworth”

Special Feature: A Sanctuary of Spirits (Spectral City #2) by Leanna Renee Hieber

Leanna Renee Hieber is such a strong writer when it comes to historical fiction mixed with the paranormal. I have read her Strangely Beautiful series and thought it was wonderful!

I also read the first book in this series and thought it was equally exciting and well written. I was so sad that I couldn’t fit this next installment into my review calendar but I am thriller that I get to share a little about this book with all of you guys!

I adore Hieber’s books, it’s like she gets me, I love the Victorian/Gothic/Gaslight Fiction so much and you can tell that she loves this time period and style in her books. If you love historical fiction mixed with some paranormal and sizzling romance, this is your writer.

Review: A Cup of Holiday Fear (A Bakeshop Mystery #10) by Ellie Alexander

I am in full holiday themed reading mode right now! This is my second holiday themed mystery post of the week and I am thrilled to be able to share this book with you guys!

I only recently discovered Ellie Alexander in the last couple of years and started her Bakeshop Mystery series like mid way through but it’s been a absolute pleasure to read.

Not to mention she is from my home state and truly makes Oregon sound like the coolest place to live in! Oregon definitely has it’s perks but whenever I read a novel set here, I have a sense of pride for my state because no one can truly capture Oregon’s magic like a local author!
