Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Great Cozy Mystery with a delightful cast of characters!!!

Running from Arrows is the next book in the Running Store Mystery Series. Lacy is single, but she has a secret admirer who is sending her flowers. Of course, she is curious. She has several men in mind. Sparks tend to fly when she is around Luke, a police detective in town. That little mystery takes a back seat when several murders occur in town.

The three main characters, Lacy, Stax, and Ruby, are very likeable. Although the book is told from Lacy’s POV, the lady who steals the show is Ruby. She takes her detecting work seriously. Each woman is different. Lacy is quiet and reserved. Stax is sweet and quirky. Ruby is outspoken. However, they each complement each other.

I really enjoyed the mystery itself. There are really several different subplots going on. The murders, the identity of Lacy’s secret admirer, and a mysterious cat burglar. In some books, three mysteries might make the book confusing and hard to follow. That was not the case with this book. Each one will make sense in the end. I like a book to keep me guessing, and this one definitely kept me doing that.

This book had several different components. Of course, the mystery…However, there was romance in the air too. The two balanced each other out perfectly. I also loved that it was a very modern mystery, yet had shades of Agatha Christie, with Ruby taking the lead. This was a great read perfect for Valentine’s Day!




 

One of Lacy’s beaus has a bow. Unlike Cupid, his arrows kill. There’s more than romance in the air this Valentine’s Day!

Running from Arrows is the fun, twist-filled, romantic cozy mystery romp you’ve been waiting for!

Valentine’s Day is coming up and Lacy is single. If that’s not bad enough, she has a secret admirer. Is it the compassionate, haunted detective, the ruggedly handsome businessman, the suave maître de, the guy in her running group who likes to stare, or maybe someone who’s not on her radar? She’ll find out soon enough because he’s invited her to dinner. Now the question isn’t how long Lacy will remain single but how long she’ll remain alive.

During the Sweetheart Run through the town of Cedar Mill a fellow runner is murdered and a notorious burglar called the Black Cat is found dead with an arrow sticking out of him. Somehow these strange murders are connected to the ladies of Run For It – Lacy the divorcee, Stax the quirky bookseller, and Ruby the old-time mystery novelist. They’re back in a race against time to catch an invisible killer and exonerate an innocent man!

If you love a delicious mystery dripping with romance, humor, and chills – and a Valentine’s Day dinner no reader will ever forget – then buy Running from Arrows now and run it right to the top of your TBR pile!

You’ll want to tell all your friends about Running from Arrows, but whatever you do, DON’T TELL THE SECRET OF THE SECRET ADMIRER.

Running from Arrows is part two in a series but can be read as a stand-alone.

About the Author

T.C. Wescott was born in Missouri but has lived in Oklahoma most of his life. Like pretty much every author who has ever breathed, he is an avid reader. His favorites are classic mysteries from the Golden Age, as well as just before or just after that period (which is widely considered the period between the two World Wars). His first mystery novel, Running from Scissors, was published in July 2018 and will be the first of at least three books in the Running Store Mystery series.

The Christmas Village Mystery series was launched in November with the debut title Slay Bells. The formula for his books is simple – mixing the classic, traditional detective fiction standards with all the trappings of the modern cozy mystery.

Wescott is also (under another name) the author of two award-winning non-fiction books as well as a slew of essays and articles.

About the Book

Murder Wears a Little Black Dress (A Resale Boutique Mystery)

Lyrical Underground (January 22, 2019)
Paperback: 200 pages
ISBN-10: 1516108965
ISBN-13: 978-1516108961
Digital ASIN: B07CR2CG63

Manhattan fashionista Kelly Quinn thought she’d left her upstate New York town far behind . . . until the Seventh Avenue expat returns home to revamp her grandmother’s consignment shop into an upscale boutique—and unwittingly sets a trend for murder . . .

After her rising career as a Manhattan buyer is derailed, Kelly has mixed feelings about relocating back to Lucky Cove, in spite of her big plans for the soon-to-be-renamed Curated by Kelly Resale Boutique. What’s left of her luck starts running out when a customer puts on a black lace dress that triggers visions of someone being murdered. As if the haunted “Murder Dress” isn’t enough to kill business, the psychic’s doppelganger cousin has just been found bludgeoned to death.

Was Maxine LeMoyne the real target or was it a case of mistaken murder? With some creepy pre-Halloween bargain hunters walking the night and Kelly suddenly a person of interest, a second murder rocks the close-knit town. Now Kelly could be the one who ends up talking to dead people when she’s stalked by a killer determined to take her out in high style . . .




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

A great start to a new cozy series!!!

Kelly Quinn finds herself back home after her grandmother passes away. Her hometown is a far cry from Manhattan, but she has plans to revamp her grandmother’s consignment shop, even giving it a new name. The last thing she expects is to be in the middle of a complicated murder investigation of not one but two murders. Not only is she a person of interest, but she is also in danger. On top of that….her uncle wants her to sell him the shop. Yes, Kelly’s life just got really complicated.

I enjoyed everything about the story. It was well-written, and the author threw in twists and turns that kept me guessing. There was also a great cast of secondary characters as well and a possible future romance for Kelly. Kelly also does some maturing throughout the book as well. She begins to realize what is important in life. All of these components combined perfectly for a great cozy mystery. I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series!

EMILY RHODES DOES IT AGAIN! This time she nosedives into a mud puddle at a Seminole War battle reenactment and finds she’s sharing the muck with a dead body. As usual the hunky detective she loves to aggravate, Stanton Lewis, cautions her against getting involved in the case, and as usual she ignores him. Emily’s sleuthing pays off, revealing disturbing information about the victim’s past. Is it the reason behind his murder? With the help of her family and friends, Emily sets out to uncover secrets kept too long and puts herself and the people she loves in the killer’s path. Too late she realizes Detective Lewis was right. Her snoopiness proves to be a deadly idea.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Emily and her daughter, Naomi, are taking part in the Battle of Okeechobee when as luck would have it…bad luck…she literally stumbles upon the body of high school principal, Leonard Parsons. And who would be right there with her except her love interest and detective, Stanton Lewis. Of course, he warns her about getting involved in another case, but we all know Emily is determined, and she won’t heed his warning.

This is a great read, with a suspenseful plot and a bit of romance thrown in. Diehl gives her readers a multi-layered plot. Was it a member of the tribe who killed him as revenge for past wrongs or does it have something to do with the secrets that are uncovered about Parsons? Diehl goes on to give a background of Parsons and a look into the horrible past treatment of the tribes in the area. Both of those aspects made the book even better.

Of course to have a great book, you need great characters as well. This book, like the previous books, are packed with memorable characters. One reason I love reading a series is with each book, I get to know more about the main characters and even some secondary ones, and this book does just that. I feel like I’m catching up with old friends, like Clara and Naomi.  I haven’t read many mysteries that are told from two POVs, so I loved that part. I liked knowing what Emily and Stanton were thinking. It gave more insight into who they were as characters and their growing feelings for one another!

If you are looking for a great mystery, with great characters, and just the right of romance thrown in, you can’t go wrong with this book, and the whole series!!!!




About the Author

Lesley retired from her life as a professor of psychology and reclaimed her country roots by moving to a small cottage in the Butternut River Valley in Upstate New York. In the winter she migrates to old Florida—cowboys, scrub palmetto, and open fields of grazing cattle, a place where spurs still jingle in the post office, and gators make golf a contact sport. Back north, the shy ghost inhabiting the cottage serves as her literary muse. When not writing, she gardens, cooks and renovates the 1874 cottage with the help of her husband, two cats and, of course, Fred the ghost, who gives artistic direction to their work. She’s presently interviewing for a coyote to serve as her muse for her books and stories set in rural Florida.

She is the author of a number of mystery series and mysteries as well as short stories, most featuring her quirky sense of humor and a few characters drawn from her peculiar family.

Some say that casting crusty attorney Allen Sharpe as Scrooge in the Kindred Players production of “A Christmas Carol” is just playing to type. He’s not the most beloved man in town. In fact, you’d have a dickens of a time finding someone who liked him. Still it’s a shock when the Ghost of Christmas Past stabs him during the first rehearsal. Suzanne, co-owner of the Cackleberry Club café, Kindred’s favorite combination diner, craft store and bookshop, chases the murderer out of the building but loses him in the alley.

As the days pass the list of suspects grows longer. Is it the disgruntled partner? The former secretary whom Sharpe sexually harrassed? Or is it fellow owner of the Cackleberry Club, Toni’s almost ex-husband, Junior? The women of the Cackleberry Club are determined to find the killer before he can add another victim to his Christmas list.

About the Author

laura childs from facebook

Laura Childs is the New York Times bestselling author of the Tea Shop Mysteries, Scrapbook Mysteries, and Cackleberry Club Mysteries. In her previous life she was CEO/Creative Director of her own marketing firm and authored several screenplays. She is married to a professor of Chinese art history, loves to travel, rides horses, enjoys fundraising for various non-profits, and has two Chinese Shar-Pei dogs.

Laura specializes in cozy mysteries that have the pace of a thriller (a thrillzy!) Her three series are:

The Tea Shop Mysteries – set in the historic district of Charleston and featuring Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop. Theodosia is a savvy entrepreneur, and pet mom to service dog Earl Grey. She’s also an intelligent, focused amateur sleuth who doesn’t rely on coincidences or inept police work to solve crimes. This charming series is highly atmospheric and rife with the history and mystery that is Charleston.

The Scrapbooking Mysteries – a slightly edgier series that take place in New Orleans. The main character, Carmela, owns Memory Mine scrapbooking shop in the French Quarter and is forever getting into trouble with her friend, Ava, who owns the Juju Voodoo shop. New Orleans’ spooky above-ground cemeteries, jazz clubs, bayous, and Mardi Gras madness make their presence known here!

The Cackleberry Club Mysteries – set in Kindred, a fictional town in the Midwest. In a rehabbed Spur station, Suzanne, Toni, and Petra, three semi-desperate, forty-plus women have launched the Cackleberry Club. Eggs are the morning specialty here and this cozy cafe even offers a book nook and yarn shop. Business is good but murder could lead to the cafe’s undoing! This series offers recipes, knitting, cake decorating, and a dash of spirituality.

Homicide in Herne Hill (The London Murder Mysteries #4) by Alice Castle Blog Tour with Review

12 Nov

Homicide in Herne Hill

Homicide in Herne Hill (The London Murder Mysteries #4)

by Alice Castle

 

Synopsis

Beth Haldane, SE21’s premier – and only – single mum amateur sleuth, is really pleased to find a new friend at the school gates, in the shape of irrepressibly bouncy Nina. As well as a way with words, Nina has a puzzle she wants Beth to solve, centred on the solicitor’s office where Nina works in Herne Hill.

But as the mystery thickens, threatening to drag in not just Nina and her boss, but the yummy mummies of Dulwich, too, Beth is about to find out just how far some people will go to keep up appearances. 

Join Beth in this fourth instalment in the London Murder Mystery series for her toughest case yet.

 




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

The London Murder Series by Alice Castle is quickly becoming one of my favorite series in the genre!

Beth has had a hard time recently with the events that took place in book 3, no spoilers here!!! That changes when she meets Nina, who sits next to her at a school function. She notices right away that she isn’t part of the “yummy mummy” group. She discovers that she has never enjoyed a Nativity as much as she has this one, with Nina giving her plenty of laughs. Beth thinks she could really be friends with Nina.

Beth can’t resist a good conundrum, so she listens to Nina’s concern about her job in the solicitor’s office. She can’t really put her finger on it, but something seems off in the office. Little does either woman realize how very “off” the business really is. Beth finds herself right in the middle of another mystery, and is there any connection with the recent spell of pet’s dying from poisoning. This may turn out to be the most dangerous and twisted mystery Beth has yet faced!

I loved the mystery, and I loved catching up with Beth and some of my other favorite characters. Castle does give us a bit more of Beth’s romance. Just like the other secondary characters, I’m coming to love Nina. She is just as fun and quirky as the others!!!!

Castle has mastered the art of writing a clever, witty mystery. She knows how to keep the storyline moving with great surprises, and she also fills the pages with great satire that brings plenty of laughs. Each book she writes gets even better!!!!
