Review: A Charming Voodoo by: Tonya Kappes

Title: A Charming Voodoo
Author: Tonya Kappes
Publisher: Krew Publishing
Series; Magical Cure #10
Pages: 200
Format: e-book ARC
Source: Tonya Kappes Book Tour

Description:

Bubble. . . bubble. . .
Whispering Falls is abuzz with the new
housing development and new shops
popping up all over the magical
village right before the annual All
Hallow’s Eve celebration.

Cures and trouble. . .
June Heal’s intuition
is on high alert and she just can’t shake
that something bad is about to happen.

Magic stirs . . .
June finds Violet Draper standing over a dead body
In the new pumpkin patch hours before it’s supposed
to open for hayrides.

And trouble doubles . . .
Once again, June has to put her sleuthing skills to work
and figure out who the real killer is before the new
citizens pack up and move right back out of town.


My Thoughts:

This book follows June Heal whose back from her honeymoon with Oscar Park June has noticed alot of business appearing in their small town, along with non magical people moving into town as well.  Not long into this book we find everyone getting ready for All Hallows' Eve and Violet whose taking picture for the gallery stumbles upon a dead body Patty in the pumpkin patch.  Who wanted to kill Patty and why?  Was it a case of mixing Patty and his twin brother Patch up?  Was it a jealous boyfriend?  So many questions so little answers.  We also watch a relationship work itself out and new relationships begin.

I love reading this series as it really deals with magic and gifts, within the community you meet so many people of Whispering Falls, and the non magical who live in Lotus Grove.  Ms. Kappes has such a knack for story telling that pull you in wanting to know more while continuing the previous storylines.  I love Mr. Prince Charming such a cute cat with such attitude.  He's a true jem to the stories!  I can't wait to see what is next in this remarkable series!  Definitely a magical village with such treasured stories around every corner!

Turns out, the poison that killed her was actually meant for David. But who wants him dead? A rival vintner? Or someone closer to home? This time the truth may be a bitter vintage to swallow.

Review: Death Among The Dollies by: Mollie Cox Bryan


Title: Death Among The Doilies
Author: Mollie Cox Bryan
Publisher: Kensington
Series: Cora Crafts Mystery #1
Pages: 320
Format: NetGalley e-book ARC
Source: GEBT & Kensington

Description:


For thirty-something blogger Cora Chevalier, small-town Indigo Gap, North Carolina, seems like the perfect place to reinvent her life. Shedding a stressful past as a counselor for a women’s shelter, Cora is pouring all her talents—and most of her savings—into a craft retreat business, with help from close pal and resident potter Jane Starr. Between transforming her Victorian estate into a crafter’s paradise and babysitting Jane’s daughter, the new entrepreneur has no time for distractions. Especially rumors about the murder of a local school librarian . . .


But when Jane’s fingerprints match those found at the grisly crime scene, Cora not only worries about her friend, but her own reputation. With angry townsfolk eager for justice and both Jane’s innocence and the retreat at risk, she must rely on her creative chops to unlace the truth behind the beloved librarian’s disturbing demise. Because if the killer’s patterns aren’t pinned, Cora’s handiwork could end up in stitches . . .


My Thoughts:

Cora Chevalier lives in small town Indigo Gap, working on setting up a retreat for crafters, not long into this her roommate Jane Starr who winds up in deep trouble when a librarian winds up dead two weeks prior and Jane's prints are at the scene now Jane has to defend herself, will the town boycott her or believe her?  Will Jane's past with her husband Neil be a problem that keeps haunting Jane or will Jane be stuck in her past forever? It doesn't take long before the town finds out Jane is a person of interest but what is her connection to the school librarian?

This book was full of so much you learn in this what Jane had gone through with her ex-husband and the choices she made along with learning about the librarian Sarah Waters and her family and their issues.  With so much going on and that to the retreat going on and Cora and Jane re-evaluating the type of people they allow at the retreat.  I really enjoyed it and found it a different change from the food themed cozies out there I often find the ones pertaining to crafts, sewing etc are so much fun as you learn about the characters passions and who prefers what type of craft.  Can't wait to see what is next for Cora, Ruby, Jane and Landon Jane's young daughter!

Interview with Cassidy Salem author Dying For Data


What genre do you write?
I write cozy mysteries with elements of romantic suspense.

How did you come to write (said) genre?
I enjoy all kinds of crime fiction, including traditional mysteries, police procedurals, and cozies. Cozies are fun and usually entertaining. I enjoy trying to follow the plots set forth by other writers in hopes of identifying the culprit. And they are typically light and enjoyable reads.  Because I enjoy reading them, I decided to try my hand at creating my own.

Who is your favorite character to write about?
At this point in the series, I’d have to say Adina Donati. Adina is smart and talented, and kind. She has an independent spirit, but is willing to accept help from others.

Who inspires your books?
No one in particular, though this series does draw a bit on my personal experiences. I knew I wanted to write a cozy mystery and that I wanted it to be in a “new” setting. After graduating from college, I worked in two different think tanks, one of them in D.C. When I decided to try my hand at writing, I wanted to create a mystery centered around a character that I could identify with, in a setting and job that would hopefully ring true.

What do you do when you’re not writing?
Phew. Finally, an easy question.  I love music, almost all kinds of music. And I love to sing and go dancing with my husband regularly.

If you were stuck on a deserted island what three things would you take?
1.    A wonderful man who knows how to make and fix things - my husband.
2.    My Kindle, filled to maximum capacity with great books.

3.    A self-renewing supply of chocolate. (I know there’s no such thing but there should be!)

Review: The Champagne Conspiracy by: Ellen Crosby

Title: The Champagne Conspiracy
Author: Ellen Crosby
Publisher: Minotaur Books
Series: Wine Country Mysteries #7
Pages: 368
Format: NetGalley e-book
Source: NetGalley

Description:

Winter has come to the Montgomery Estate Vineyard in Atoka, Virginia. Lucie Montgomery and winemaker Quinn Santori have decided to make champagne, a first for the vineyard.

But then Gino Tomassi, Quinn’s uncle, turns up on their doorstep one afternoon, demanding help in solving the mystery of what happened to Zara Tomassi, the first wife of his grandfather, who died in a San Francisco hotel in 1923 under suspicious circumstances. And it seems there’s no coincidence that her death came the day after President Warren Harding passed away in that same hotel. Gino needs answers before his blackmailer takes him for all he’s worth―or exposes an explosive family secret.

Lucie searches for what happened almost a hundred years ago as she delves into Prohibition-era Washington, D.C.―a town of bootlegging and duplicity, jazz clubs and speakeasies. But then the investigation turns deadly, threatening Lucie, her relationship with Quinn, and the vineyard, as they realize someone is still out there nearly a century later who will go to any lengths to keep the truth about Zara’s death a buried secret.


My Thoughts:

This book all begins with a dress found by Lucie Montgomery in her attic from the era of the roaring twenties.  After trying on the dress and finding it fit perfectly an idea is formed to have a roaring twenties themed party called "Anything Goes" much like the parties held by Jay Gatsby in the Great Gatsby.

The next morning Quinn and Lucie get a visit from a cousin of Quinn's whose being blackmailed about a long held secret within the Tomassi family whose know for having a vineyard in California and supplying wine to the White House during prohibition.  Gino Tomassi asks Quinn and Lucie to look into who is blackmailing him and find out if Zara Tomassi his grandfather's first wife who died mysteriously had her child or lost it and what really happened?  Was Zara murdered and what happened to the baby?

This book brought in all sorts of people within the town and also showed alot of history with the roaring twenties, even involving President Warren Harding and some of it before he was the President.  I really enjoyed this book learning the history of Lucie's family and Zara and what happened it was incredible that the author was able to tell the story so clearly that you thought you were there during that time frame!  I really loved the wine series can't wait to see what is next!

Review: Last Kiss of Summer by: Marina Adair

Title: Last Kiss of Summer
Author: Marina Adair
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Series: Destiny Bay #1
Pages: 384
Format: Paperback ARC
Source: NetGalley

Description:

 He's one bad apple she just can't resist . . .
Kennedy Sinclair never dreamed she'd own a pie shop and an orchard in a small town like Destiny Bay. But nestled between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean, it's the perfect place to cross something off her "Life's short so eat the icing first" list and start her life over from scratch. Her shop, Sweetie Pies, is famous for its hot, flaky apple turnovers and sinfully delicious deep dish pie. For Kennedy though, nothing is more enticing than the tall, strapping slice of temptation who keeps coming back for more.

Luke Callahan is determined to make his hard cider business a success. With his beloved father's cider recipe and the opportunity of a lifetime in his grasp, he'll stop at nothing to get this deal done. There's just one catch: he needs Kennedy's apples. At first, he thinks it'll be as easy as pie to charm those apples right off her trees. But Kennedy isn't falling for his tender charms or his wicked ways. When the negotiations start heating up, so do the feelings they have for each other. And it takes just one kiss to seal the deal . . .

My Thoughts:

When Kennedy Sinclair finds her fiance playing tango with a dance instructor Kenndy packs her stuff and heads to her home where her grandmother lives.  Her grandmother convinces Kennedy to take a deal of a lifetime owning her own pie shop and relocating to Destiny Bay.  When Kennedy gets there she learns that not everything is what it seemed and now Kennedy has a make it or break it type situation.

Kennedy also meets Luke Callahan whose been away and is working on making his business of hard cider a success what Luke didn't count on was the cute pie shop owner owning the apples he needs.  Of course that doesn't stop Luke from falling for Kennedy.  Will the second time with romance be the charm for Kennedy?

I love reading about Destiny Bay and learning about Luke, his mother Paula and his aunt Fi.  Paula and Fi are spunky and in alot of ways really blunt and to the point They teach Kennedy everything they can including what helps pie be so great.  I can see alot of this series being as great as Sherryl Woods, Robyn Carr and many others such a great small town romance!

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Eve Appel and her business associate Madeline as they are working in their second hand thrift business and are also protesting Mud Bog Racing.  Lately Madeline has been with "flu like symptoms" when during the protesting Eve catches a head of Jenny someone who shopped in her second hand thrift stores.  Eve feels compeled to helped Jenny's daughter anyway she can.  Meanwhile she is also working on her store and finding out whether people will boycott her due to her protesting.

Review: The CEO Came DOA by: Heather Haven


Title: The CEO Came DOA
Author: Heather Haven
Publisher: Wives of Bath Press
Series: Alvarez Family Mysteries #5
Pages: 308
Format: Kindle e-book
Source: GEBT

Description:

Someone is trying to sabotage the Initial Public Offering of 'Read-Out', a small Silicon Valley start-up, and Lee Alvarez has been hired to find the culprit. Meanwhile, the first Alvarez grandchild is about to be born while Lee is planning her very own Christmas wedding; or rather letting her mother plan it. When Lee finds the CEO hanging by the neck in his boardroom wearing nothing but baby blue boxer shorts, she has to ask herself, was it suicide? Or was it murder? If so, was the saboteur responsible, one of his business partners, or even his famous rock star ex-wife? There are too many suspects and the bodies start piling up just in time for Christmas. Ho, ho, ho 

My Thoughts: 

In this book we go back and visit the Alvarez Family.  Lee and Richard are working to find out what is going on with their new clients company Read-Out when Lee stumbles upon a dead man who appears to have committed suicide.  The man in question is the CEO David H. Collier, and it appears he decided to kill himself.  When the police and Lee witness a declaration by his young teenage daughter Skye that her father wouldn't kill himself Lee can't help but feel for the young girl.  To what end will Lee go to help the young girl?  Did David Collier really kill himself?  If he didn't who killed him, and why?

 As Lee is still working with Richard about the Read-Out they find something out about worker's being micro chipped even the other man in charge had his llama's chipped. Unfortunatly a tester and some chips keep appearing and disappearing and Lee and Richard can't find out why?  This book brings you all over Silicon Valley and we also get to learn about a dangerous drug making it's round with a short life expectancy.  

Lee is still working on getting married her mother is planning everything all Lee has to do is don her dress and be at the church on time, of course it doesn't help Lee's fears when her fiance gets called into work where he can't tell her anything but she clues him in when his neice is born.  Richard has a new baby which has him on cloud 9 inbetween all the chaos.  

I enjoy the Alvarez family.  They are great and work so well together especially with the people they come in contact with.  Definitely keeps you enthralled and wanting more.  I'm working on filling in the inbetween books to get caught up on others in the series Long Live the Alvarez Family!!
