ARC Review: “Soul Taken,” by Patricia Briggs

Happy (too many days after) release day to all Mercy Thompson fans! I received the ARC for "Soul Taken," book thirteen in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, and I was over the moon (thank you, Netgalley and Berkley!). The Mercy Thompson series is one of my favorite urban fantasy series, and book one … Continue reading ARC Review: “Soul Taken,” by Patricia Briggs

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: “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

ARC Review: “Meet Me in the Margins,” by Melissa Ferguson

Happy March, all! March is not what I would call my favorite month - too many nuances to Northeast weather - but I am excited to start a new month of reading and was even more excited to receive Meet Me in the Margins by Melissa Ferguson as a late ARC (thank you, Netgalley and … Continue reading ARC Review: “Meet Me in the Margins,” by Melissa Ferguson

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: “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
