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

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

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: “Murder in a Teacup,” by Vicki Delany

Happy Sunday all! I finally thought that I was on top of things, only to realize an ARC I had marked for August actually came out in July! Murder in a Teacup is book two of Vicki Delany's Tea by the Sea Mystery series, and while I am a bigger fan of some of Vicki … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder in a Teacup,” by Vicki Delany

ARC Review: “Murder in Connemara,” by Carlene O’Connor

Another day, another cozy set in Ireland. I am a sucker for all things Ireland/Scotland, and when that obsession intersects with my love of all cozies, you get a no brainer. Carlene O'Connor writes another cozy series set in Ireland called Irish Village Mystery, but the Home to Ireland series is a little newer (Murder … Continue reading ARC Review: “Murder in Connemara,” by Carlene O’Connor

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

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
