Book Review: “An Unexpected Peril,” by Deanna Raybourn

So... I have been in a bit of a slump. Blame it on the weather (what is this hellfire?!), blame it on work/wedding stress, blame it on a lackluster current book (RTC, but still not sure what the hype is for These Violent Delights...) but I have not had the inclination to sit down and … Continue reading Book Review: “An Unexpected Peril,” by Deanna Raybourn

ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser

Happy Saturday, all! Wishing everyone in the U.S. a relaxing long weekend, and a contemplative Memorial Day. It is raining this whole weekend where I am, which on the one hand is a major bummer for what the first week of "summer" should be, is great for my reading! It also gives me a great … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Bookshop of Second Chances,” by Jackie Fraser

ARC Review: “Deadly Ever After,” by Eva Gates

Another day, another awesome cozy set in a seaside town replete with books and a faithful cat. When the formula works, it works! Deadly Ever After is book eight in the Lighthouse Library series, and is the fourth ARC in a row I am late on. However, I am honored to receive it, as Eva … Continue reading ARC Review: “Deadly Ever After,” by Eva Gates

ARC Review: “Murder in the Cookbook Nook,” by Ellery Adams

Another day, another week, another late ARC. And yet another unforgiveable ARC, because Ellery Adams is the bomb! She is another one of my favorite cozy writers, and I was honored to have Netgalley and Kensington let me have this opportunity. Murder in the Cookbook Nook came out two weeks ago, and book seven of … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder in the Cookbook Nook,” by Ellery Adams

ARC Review: “Wining and Dying,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

Hi all! I have been lazy, there is no other excuse. And shame on me, because Daryl Wood Gerber is one of my favorite cozy authors recently. Her Cookbook Nook series is a blast, with beautiful Pacific coast setting, a bookstore, and a trusty cat (my dream, basically). While I didn't love the last book, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Wining and Dying,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

ARC Review: “Book of Love,” by Erin Satie

Happy Tuesday, all! I am thoroughly wiped out, but man am I behind on my ARCs. And it is a crying shame, because Book of Love was a little gem of an historical romance. Not all my cup of tea, but light, fun, and a hint of sexy. So without further ado... From the Publisher: … Continue reading ARC Review: “Book of Love,” by Erin Satie

ARC Review: “Deadly Editions,” by Paige Shelton

Happy Tuesday, all! I am ridiculously, miserably delinquent on reviewing Deadly Editions by Paige Shelton, which is ridiculous since I absolutely love this series! I received this ARC right before publication date and devoured it; I was already finished by the time my pre-order arrived. So, better late than ever, without further ado... From the … Continue reading ARC Review: “Deadly Editions,” by Paige Shelton

ARC Review: “Hope Between the Pages,” by Pepper Basham

Happy Friday, all! This is the last Friday of my vacation, and while I am sad to see it go, I definitely feel like I got the rest I needed. My "hit count" for books read during vacation is up to four books this week, and I have two more good reading days left. One … Continue reading ARC Review: “Hope Between the Pages,” by Pepper Basham

Book Review: “Calculated Risks,” by Seanan McGuire

Hello all! Is this what vacation feels like?! I forgot the weird exhilaration of being off from work for any length of time. I am, in a word, loving it. For this week, I plan on reviewing so many books that have been sitting in the "Read" pile, unreviewed and seemingly unloved. Calculated Risks, book … Continue reading Book Review: “Calculated Risks,” by Seanan McGuire

Book Review: “The Mystery of Mrs. Christie,” by Marie Benedict

Hello all, and happiest of Saturdays! Today was my last day of work before a nice week-long vacation, and MAN do I need it. I can't wait to use this break to get back into blogging about my favorite thing: Amazing books. What better day to start then today? I bring you The Mystery of … Continue reading Book Review: “The Mystery of Mrs. Christie,” by Marie Benedict
