ARC Review: “The Vanishing Type,” by Ellery Adams

Hello all, and welcome to today's issue of "late ARCs." Up today is the newest Secret, Book and Scone Society installation, The Vanishing Type by Ellery Adams. Ellery Adams is a queen in the cozy mystery sphere, and this is by far my favorite series by her. It features a book store, baked goods, best … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Vanishing Type,” by Ellery Adams

ARC Review: “How to Book a Murder,” by Cynthia Kuhn

Another day, another late ARC. However, How to Book a Murder by Cynthia Kuhn was worth the wait, and I loved reading this Halloween-themed cozy in the heat of summer when I need to promise of fall spookies. So thank you, Netgalley and Crooked Lane Books for another delightful read! From the Publisher: To help … Continue reading ARC Review: “How to Book a Murder,” by Cynthia Kuhn

ARC Review: “A Three Book Problem,” by Vicki Delany

Another day, another cozy mystery to snuggle up with on these cold winter nights (in New York, at least). While A Three Book Problem is set in October, it still manages to evoke the same sense of large sweaters, mulled wine, and longing stares out the window (just at leaves instead of snow). And for … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Three Book Problem,” by Vicki Delany

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: “Never Fall for Your Fiancée,” by Virginia Heath

"Reader, I married him." Such a cliché line, but it's all I got. It has been a month since I have posted, and my only excuse is one blip in the timeline of life: My wedding. Lots of planning, lots of recovery, but on October 9, I finally said my vows in front of a … Continue reading ARC Review: “Never Fall for Your Fiancée,” by Virginia Heath

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: “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

ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

I am, predictably, late - and shame on me too! Patricia Briggs is by far one of my favorite UA writers, and when I won Wild Sign from Netgalley and Berkley Publishing, I was thrilled! A little too thrilled, perhaps, since I finished Wild Sign at least a month before it came out. And now, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

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: “Ink and Shadows,” by Ellery Adams

Happy Sunday, all! I was so ridiculously excited to receive Ink and Shadows by Ellery Adams. I have read all of the Secret, Bone, and Scone Society novels, as well as most of her Books on the Bay and Book Retreat mysteries, and this is by far my favorite series out of everything she has … Continue reading ARC Review: “Ink and Shadows,” by Ellery Adams
