ARC Review: “Death by Beach Read,” by Eva Gates

Ah, the solstice approaches. The longest day of the year, the beginning of summer, and a most sacred day. As the solstice approaches, I try to be kinder to myself. This year, I have been a bad blogger. I have been sporadic and have read books that remain unreviewed and never took the time to … Continue reading ARC Review: “Death by Beach Read,” by Eva Gates

ARC Review: “The Burning Pages,” by Paige Shelton

Another day, another *slightly* late ARC review. I read Paige Shelton's newest installation of the Scottish Bookshop Mystery series, The Burning Pages, (book 7!) the minute I received the ARC... which was way too early. I ended up having to reread my favorite parts just for this review. I have had the pleasure of reviewing … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Burning Pages,” by Paige Shelton

Book Review: “The Librarian Always Rings Twice,” by Marty Wingate

It has been a wonderful weekend. I finished my January Wrap Up this weekend, which inspired me to back-review some books I read last month. The Librarian Always Rings Twice is book three in the First Edition Library Mystery series, which has one of the most fun premises of any bookish cozy series: a librarian … Continue reading Book Review: “The Librarian Always Rings Twice,” by Marty Wingate

Book Review: “An Eggnog to Die For,” by Amy Pershing

Hello all, and a happy holiday and new year to all who celebrated! I don't have a great excuse for missing so much time between posts - between the post-wedding nonsense, my 30th birthday, job insanity, and the looming holidays, the idea of sitting and writing felt stressful, too much. However, I finally realized that … Continue reading Book Review: “An Eggnog to Die For,” by Amy Pershing

ARC Review: “The Book Binder’s Daughter,” by Jessica Thorne

Ah, September. The start of the best season of the year. I am a leaf peeping, sweater wearing, cider drinking obsessive, and fall can't come soon enough. I was super excited to receive an ARC for The Book Binder's Daughter by Jessica Thorne, since it feels so much like the start of *spooky season.* Magical … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Book Binder’s Daughter,” by Jessica Thorne

ARC Review: “The Beach Reads Book Club,” by Kathryn Freeman

Another day, another late ARC review. However, I had such a blast reading The Beach Reads Book Club! I requested this book from Netgalley and Harper Collins UK because I am a sucker for everything book related, and the idea of a fun, kitschy romance book club on a beach is basically me in a … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Beach Reads Book Club,” by Kathryn Freeman

ARC Review: “A Glimmer of a Clue,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

Happy Friday, all! I am a tad delinquent on this review, though in my defense I finished the book on time! A Glimmer of a Clue is book two in the Fairy Garden Mystery series by Daryl Wood Gerber, and I can confidently say it is much better than book one (I had the pleasure … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Glimmer of a Clue,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

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: “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
