I am so glad this series exists! I cannot wait for book 2 now!! This was a wonderful cozy mystery with an amazing dog everyone will fall in love with and quirky characters to keep you laughing!
When Maddy inherits her recently passed great aunt’s home, bakery, and dog, she’s definitely in over her head. She’s happy to just sell it all and get the money for more shoes, except that there’s a clause in this will. She can’t just sell it, she’s got to live in the house, run the bakery, and care for the dog. When a murder and a fire take place in her very newly acquired bakery, her whole life turns upside down as she finds that she wants to find the murderer and save the bakery!
My goodness, I just really enjoy Nikki Bryant! She’s such a great main character for this series, and I was so excited to get her back in the second book in this series!
The thing I love so much about cozy mysteries is that I get the murder and investigative aspect, but it’s a bit more light hearted and fun! Lauren Carr knows how to capture that balance perfectly! This plot was so much fun! I loved how the story unfolded and everything that happened along the way!
Folks in the small town of Pine Grove, Pennsylvania, claim that where Nikki Bryant goes, trouble is not far behind. Her refusal to back down from a challenge has made Nikki Bryant a top investigative journalist.
After years of chasing mysteries around the globe, Nikki Bryant returns home to Pine Grove to take over managing WKPG-TV and reconnects with her first love, Ryan Spaulding, the chief of the state police crime lab.
It doesn’t take long for Nikki and her family to realize that you can’t keep this ace reporter and her boxer dog Elmo behind a desk–especially when a mystery is afoot.
I am so happy to be back with Grace and her investigations! I’ve read the previous two books in this series, and this one lives up to the previous two! While the series is fantastic, if you want to read this as a stand-alone, you absolutely can.
Grace is not an investigator by trade, but she certain is great at it, and she seems to always find herself in a situation where she gets to put her skills to use! In this story, Grace’s father is involved in the theft of a Russian artifact. There’s an abduction of his wife as well as the murder of an actress, and it’s all just a lot for Grace!
If you are looking for a new cozy mystery, grab this great story! Dead Cereus has the great mystery of a cozy with a romance that will make you swoon and some hilarious moments that will have you laughing out loud!
It’s time for another fantastic book in the Tita Rosie’s Kitchen Mystery series! This cozy mystery was just as wonderful as the first book in the series!
This book picks up just a while after the ending of the first one. Lila is still working to get into a better headspace after the recent murder. There’s a focus here on mental health, and I really liked how it was handled.
This was a fun, quick mystery that brought Fiona’s neighbor, Astrid, into the story. Astrid offers to help Fiona figure out where her nightmare is coming from using a crystal ball. Of course, this story involves some silly moments that made me smile and had a good mystery!
About the Book: Yikes! Fiona’s been having a recurring nightmare and it’s driving her to distraction—so much so that she’s allowed her kooky neighbor, Astrid Dingle, to search for the answer through her crystal ball. What could be the cause of the dream, and what lengths will Fiona go to get to the crux of it all? You’ll be chasing dreams with Fiona, Detective Landry and Astrid in this fun quick mystery!
What a fun story this was! Set in the wild west, this follows a young Annie Oakley as she takes a job in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. A murder soon takes place, and Annie has to work to find out what happened.
I really enjoyed that this was a lighter story, really fitting into the cozy mystery genre. It was a fast read that grabbed my attention immediately. The historical setting was described well and gave details that really brought the story to life!
This was a really great cozy mystery! I loved the main characters who run the lodge, and I look forward to reading more about them in future books in this series! The new owner of the lodge, Misty, is a strong MC, and she’s a great little sleuth!
The Pickwick Murders is a retelling of the Charles Dickens story, The Pickwick Papers. I haven’t read the original, so this was a new story for me. Set in the early 1800’s, this was a fun historical cozy mystery. I enjoyed the fiancée, Kate in this story. She is a strong female character, and has to use a variety of tools in her belt to figure out what is happening!
