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

ARC Review: “Crimes and Covers,” by Amanda Flower

Happy Sunday, all! Another week, another *slightly* late ARC review (thank you, Netgalley and Crooked Lane Books!) but Amanda Flower is one of my favorite cozy mystery writers out right now (her Scottish magical garden series is amazing!) and I have been reading the Magical Bookshop Series for years now. Crimes and Covers is number … Continue reading ARC Review: “Crimes and Covers,” by Amanda Flower

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

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: “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: “A Side of Murder,” by Amy Pershing

Hello all, and happy weekend! I had the pleasure of reading Amy Pershing's new series, A Cape Cod Foodie Mystery, with the first book being A Side of Murder. Thank you, Netgalley and Berkley Books, for this opportunity! A light cozy is exactly what I needed. From the Publisher: A food writer must investigate the … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Side of Murder,” by Amy Pershing

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

ARC Review: “A Curious Incident,” by Vicki Delany

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I think it is safe to say that we were all sick of 2020. There are no promises for 2021, and not much will change right away, but there is definitely a consensus that 2021 can't be *as bad* as 2020. One great thing that is happening this January is A Curious … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Curious Incident,” by Vicki Delany

Book Review: “Shredding the Evidence,” by Daryl Wood Gerber

Phew, what a week. What a month. I decided to read a light cozy by one of my preferred cozy authors, Daryl Wood Gerber, to just read something, anything. Because of this, my disappointment in Shredding the Evidence may be exacerbated, but I do expect better from book 9 of a series I am generally … Continue reading Book Review: “Shredding the Evidence,” by Daryl Wood Gerber
