Review: Lost and Fondue

Lost and Fondue Lost and Fondue by Avery Aames
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this cozy. The details about the cheese and wine are quite good. As are the descriptions of the play that is a side plot. The characters both positive and negatively received are well written. It’s easy to like the ones you should and easy to dislike the ones you are supposed to dislike. The mystery has complexity to it especially with regard to the motive. The personal aspects of Charlotte’s life makes for an interesting expansion to the plot and the details make sense instead of feeling like filler. I look forward to reading g more in the series

Review: The Falcon's Feather

The Falcon's Feather The Falcon's Feather by Trudi Trueit
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Enjoyable book that integrates science in a cool way. This should spark interest in a young reader interested in the world around them and in technology and what can be. The mystery and suspense keep the story going

Review: Past Due for Murder

Past Due for Murder Past Due for Murder by Victoria Gilbert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book had a great amount of twists to keep it interesting without making it over the top. I really enjoyed the authenticity of the relationships of the characters especially Amy and Richard. I look forward to reading more of these works and the tributes they pay to the area within the Blue Ridge Mtns

Review: Clobbered by Camembert

Clobbered by Camembert Clobbered by Camembert by Avery Aames
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Charlotte is up to her snooping again. This time the book had a chilly vibe both because it’s set in winter and bc there are plenty of people in Providence that are receiving g a chilling welcome. What does previous resident Kaitlyn Clydesdale want with her previous hometown and what does she know about Charlottes long dead mother. Before any of those questions can be answered there’s a murder in town. So besides yummy cheese and wine explanations the reader is treated to a murder investigation. So what happens when love is in the air and accusations fly. Read and find out

Review: Obsession

Obsession Obsession by Stuart Woods
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoy the Teddy Fay novels more than the Stone Barrington ones. I believe it’s because they are more clever plot lines and spy focused. This make them more enjoyable for me than trying to read around all of Stones bed hopping ways. This book gives a glimpse into movie making a bit more than others and that’s a fun twist as well

Review: Sniffing Out Murder

Sniffing Out Murder Sniffing Out Murder by Kallie E. Benjamin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

awesome new series

I enjoy all of Valerie Burns’ series. I think this might be my favorite. I enjoyed Bailey the Bloodhound and the Sub stories about him. Pris and her Aunt Agatha are amazing as are the dynamics with Prius’ bff, Marcie. The mystery is well thought out and the secondary crimes fit well in the main plot line. I look forward to reading more in this series
