ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

Hello all! What a week. I have been cramming at work and cramming my ARCs, two of which are out next week! Little Black Book is from one of my favorite cozy series, Kate Carlisle's Bibliophile Mystery series. At number 15, this series is still fun, albeit with some minor quirks. But would can't love … Continue reading ARC Review: “Little Black Book,” by Kate Carlisle

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: “The Vanishing at Loxby Manor,” by Abigail Wilson

Hello all! I am officially only one book behind on my ARCs! I had the distinct pleasure and honor of receiving Abigail Wilson's The Vanishing at Loxby Manor from Netgalley and Thomas Nelson Fiction and I was biting at the bit to read it ever since! Despite some minor formatting issues, here was an ARC … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Vanishing at Loxby Manor,” by Abigail Wilson

ARC Review: “The Dark Archive,” by Genevieve Cogman

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate, and good holiday cheer and health to all who don't! I am sorry for my prolonged absences - I hate being a broken record, but my new job has made it so that reading is my only source of pleasure. One of the most exciting things about this month … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Dark Archive,” by Genevieve Cogman

ARC Review: “Premeditated Mortar,” by Kate Carlisle

Hi all, and sorry I have been absent! My new job is kicking my butt (in a good way, but still a lot of work), and my reading has fallen to the wayside. It is only week one, so hopefully I will get over the growing pains soon. I could not neglect my ARCs, however, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Premeditated Mortar,” by Kate Carlisle

ARC Review: “Murder is a Must,” by Marty Wingate

I don't know about anyone else, but I am having some major Sunday scaries right now. Tomorrow, I start a new job. It is the first "first day" I have had in years, and it is a remarkably different experience because of COVID. To combat the nervous energy by lining up all of my cozy … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder is a Must,” by Marty Wingate

ARC Review: “Murder at an Irish Christmas,” by Carlene O’Connor

Ho ho ho, merry... September? While I am unsure of the timing in publishing Carlene O'Connor's sixth Irish Village Mystery book, Murder at an Irish Christmas (due to be published this October), I don't mind at all because I love this series so much! Thank you, Netgalley and Kensington Books for this awesome opportunity! From … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder at an Irish Christmas,” by Carlene O’Connor

ARC Review: “On Borrowed Crime,” by Kate Young

Has anyone ever read a book and had such a vastly different opinion of it than other people, you wonder if you even read the same book? That was me with On Borrowed Crime by Kate Young. I really did not like this, and my ARC e-copy was so poorly formatted I almost didn't get … Continue reading ARC Review: “On Borrowed Crime,” by Kate Young

ARC Review: “The Archive of the Forgotten,” by A.J. Hackwith

Hi all, and sorry for my absence! I went to upstate New York to visit family and get some needed R&R. It also inspired me to finish three (!) books while resting, so I am almost caught up on my reading goals. One of the books I got to finish was The Archive of the … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Archive of the Forgotten,” by A.J. Hackwith
