Review of WINTER WRITERLAND by Beatrice Fishback

My rating: <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2628816891">5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
WINTER WRITERLAND is a totally enjoyable, relaxed, cosy mystery set in England, which I adored from start to finish. Protagonist Daisy McFarland is an American expat, a retired teacher, not quite "feckless heroine" but very close to it. Her psychology, which the author cleverly and subtly delineates, very much resonated with me. Daisy is just fifty-three, and has made herself a home in a terraced house in a small English village, with her enormous (and enormously egotistical) cat, Pillow. <br /><br />Daisy attends a special crime writers' retreat annually, held at an immense country manor house. This year the teachers are three female specialists (a videographer, a forensic scientist, and an expert in pharmaceuticals), and a rather hunky and kind-hearted police Detective Inspector who flutters more than a few hearts among the writers, including Daisy's. All is spiffy until one of Daisy's friends loses out in the Play to Stage competition (in which authors submit stage plays ahead of time, and then the attending writers audition to play the parts). Fiona blames the new woman who is selected for the part she wanted; and when later Daisy inadvertently discovers a body in the adjacent lake, of course Fiona is the Person of Interest. Daisy won't stand for that, though; she trusts Fiona implicitly, and is tasked by the DI because of her background in teaching.

Review_CRIME CHOWDER by Hilary Avis (Death Du Jour Book 1)

Release date: Dec. 13 2018 Crime Chowder (Death Du Jour Mystery, #1)Crime Chowder by Hillary Avis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

CRIME CHOWDER is Book 1 in the new DEATH DU JOUR series, starring a feckless but endearing protagonist, who for a change is female (in the sense that feckless protagonists are in my experience usually male). Bethany Bradstreet aspires to be a chef, with her own establishment. That shouldn't be a problem; but it does require a certain number of years of experience, preferably as a sous chef rather than as a fry cook in a chain seafood restaurant. But Bethany is determined to be patient, at least until unforeseen circumstances throw her straight into the figurative lobster pot. Her roommate/best friend's aunt's house is burned down, leaving the lady and her (in this case, really aggravating) dog homeless for safety's sake, so they move in with Bethany and company. Even more unfortunately, the house-burning was no accident, but arson, and as all too often happens, one crime escalates, and soon there is a murder--and guess who is the suspect?

To Fetch a Thief: Four Fun To Fetch a Thief: Four Fun "Tails" of Theft and Murder by Teresa Inge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review of TO FETCH A THIEF

I love animal cozies more than any other kind of cozies (and I really love the cozy subgenre), so to discover To Fetch a Thief: Four Fun "Tails" of Theft and Murder (Mutt Mysteries #1) was a delightful find. Four very different tales, each employing our furry friends, and in each case not only does the human not sleuth alone, but the pet sleuths prove themselves instrumental. Settle in for excitement, enjoyment, and intrigue, as those with tails do indeed "fetch" the wrongdoers to justice.

Tour_A TIMELESS CELEBRATION by Dianne Ascroft



A Timeless Celebration (Century Cottage Cozy Mysteries) by Dianne Ascroft

 

About the Book

A Timeless Celebration (Century Cottage Cozy Mysteries)

Cozy Mystery

1st in Series

Self Published (October 25, 2018)

Print Length: 245 pages

ASIN: B07HF847NN

A small town, a big party, a stolen gift. When an artefact from the Titanic is stolen before her town's 150th anniversary celebration, it's up to Lois Stone to catch the thief.

Middle-aged widow Lois has moved from bustling Toronto to tranquil Fenwater and is settling into her new life away from the dangers of the city. Then two events happen that shatter her serenity: her house is burgled and an antique watch belonging to a Titanic survivor is stolen from the local museum. Her best friend, Marge, was responsible for the watch's safekeeping until its official presentation to the museum at the town's 150th anniversary party, and its disappearance will jeopardise her job and the museum's future. Lois won't let her friend take the blame and the consequences for the theft. She's determined to find the watch in time to save her best friend's job, the museum's future and the town's 150th anniversary celebration.

And so begins a week of new friends, apple and cinnamon muffins, calico cats, midnight intruders, shadowy caprine companions and more than one person with a reason to steal the watch, set against the backdrop of century houses on leafy residential streets, the swirling melodies of bagpipes, a shimmering heat haze and the burble of cool water.

About the Author

Dianne Ascroft is a Torontonian who has settled in rural Northern Ireland. She and her husband live on a small farm with an assortment of strong-willed animals.

A Timeless Celebration is the first novel in the Century Cottage Cozy Mysteries series.

A Timeless Celebration (Century Cottage Cozy Mysteries Book 1)A Timeless Celebration by Dianne Ascroft
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A TIMELESS CELEBRATION is truly a "Cozy's Cozy." Book 1 in the new series Century Cottage Cozy Mysteries, it is a heartwarming delight with really well-developed characters and such a beautiful setting. I wasn't sure what a "Century Cottage" was, but now I'm certain this is a concept often occurring in Canada and the UK (and why not America too?), a cottage that has stood for 100 years or longer. Lois Stone, a most engaging protagonist, is a widow of three years. Formerly of Toronto, she is eager to move after her husband's unexpected and untimely demise (a heart attack consequent to a mugging). She finds herself fearful of her own urban neighborhood, and when her best friend Marge moves to Fenway to care for her mother, Lois buys a century cottage in the lovely small community and quickly moves also.

Lois is empathetic because she is vulnerable, honest, unafraid to admit when she's fearful or lonely, readily admitting how much she yearns for her husband James and how unsettled she was while she remained in the city. I didn't warm up as much to her best friend Marge, as I found her standoffish; but certainly the mystery of what happened to the historic artifact (a watch owned by a Titanic survivor) which was to be donated to the local museum where Marge is employed as an archivist kept my attention throughout. Too many suspects, too little time to solve the mystery; but Lois is diligent and determined and unflinching.

Tour_WITH A LITTLE BIT OF BLOOD by D. E. Ireland

With a Little Bit of Blood (The Eliza Doolittle & Henry Higgins Mysteries) by D.E. Ireland

 

About the Book

With a Little Bit of Blood (The Eliza Doolittle & Henry Higgins Mysteries)

Cozy Mystery

4th in Series

Grainger Press (April 15, 2018)

Paperback: 352 pages

ISBN-10: 0998180939

ISBN-13: 978-0998180939

Digital ASIN: B07BSV486T

In the fourth book from the Agatha Award nominated writing team of D.E. Ireland, famous literary characters Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins find they may have brought trouble with them when they attend a country house party in With A Little Bit of Blood.

Eliza is not happy when Higgins buys a snazzy roadster. Her misgivings prove correct when he becomes injured in a motor car crash. Forced to play nursemaid, Eliza is thrilled to accept an invitation to a house party from Lord Ashmore and his bride, the former Clara Eynsford-Hill. But upon their arrival at Banfield Manor, Eliza is dismayed to see her sweetheart Freddy arm in arm with a beautiful actress. Higgins is shocked to learn the woman who once stalked him is also attending the party. Things grow even worse when spiritualist Madame Evangeline arrives and warns of impending danger. Her prediction comes true when someone is killed during the following day's shoot in the forest.

Higgins and Eliza suspect it wasn't an accident, but murder. Every guest hides a dark secret that involved the dead man. But who hated him more? The French aviator, the American cinema actress, a lady novelist, the Austrian count, or a knighted explorer of the Amazon? Madame Evangeline's séance may reveal what is really going on. But her cryptic words deepen the mystery, especially after another guest turns up dead.

Who is behind these murders? And has Higgins himself been targeted? As the day of the fox hunt begins, it seems likely that more than the fox will die. Before that happens, Eliza and the Professor must discover who may have a little bit of blood on their hands.

About the Authors

D.E. Ireland is the pseudonym of long time friends and award-winning authors, Meg Mims and Sharon Pisacreta. In 2013 they decided to collaborate on a unique series based on George Bernard Shaw's witty play Pygmalion, which also inspired the classic musical My Fair Lady. At work on Book Four of their Agatha nominated series, they also pursue separate writing careers. Currently, both of them write cozy mysteries for Kensington under their respective pen names: Sharon Farrow with her Berry Basket series, and Meg Macy with her Shamelessly Adorable Teddy Bear series. The two Michigan authors have patient husbands, brilliant daughters, and share a love of tea, books, and history.

An Eliza Doolittle & Henry Higgins Mystery #4

Once again, the author duo D. E. Ireland bring to life early 20th century London, both the upper class (Henry Higgins and the Colonel, and recently, Eliza) and the poorer classes (Eliza's upbringing, and exemplified by her most recent stepmother, Rose). Higgins gets the same motorcar bug that earlier bit Emily's father Alfred, injuring Alfred, and now injuring Higgins and Emily's detective cousin Jack as well. So it's off to the country for recuperation, of course, with a side dish of murder.

It’s February in the small town of Cobble Cove. Love is in the air . . . but so is murder!

When Alicia helps plan a Valentine’s Day Party at the Cobble Cove library that also includes a surprise for her newlywed friend, Gilly, things go wrong when a mysterious box of chocolates addressed to the director turns out laced with poison.

Clues Lead to A Dead Suspect

Although Alicia promised John she’ll no longer meddle in crime investigations, she and Gilly set out to find the person threatening Sheila who murdered the courier of the deadly candy. The three people they suspect include the professor from California who’s been romancing Sheila while she assists him with research for his book; the obnoxious patron Rhonda Kleisman who threw coffee at the director after refusing to pay for a damaged book; and a visiting widow staying at Gilly’s inn who’s unnaturally curious about Sheila and earns the nickname of Madame Defarge for her interest in knitting.

New Cat in Town

While Alicia and Gilly are trying to solve this new Cobble Cove mystery, Sneaky is introduced to Gilly’s new kitten, Kittykai, a calico she brought home from her honeymoon in Hawaii. It’s not like at first sight, but the two cats eventually become friends. They also both play a part in foiling the killer’s murder attempts, but will Alicia and Sheila survive unscathed?

Love on the Rocks (Cobble Cove Mystery Book 4)Love on the Rocks by Debbie De Louise
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

LOVE ON THE ROCKS is Book 4 in the delightful Cobble Cove Mystery series. I love any cozy set in libraries or bookstores (any fiction period in those settings) and any animal cozies, so I loved this novel; plus it was so well-written I just couldn't turn away!

The Library characters are just delights: Alicia, Sheila, Nancy, Gilly (Abigail), Donald, and more, including the lovely Siamese Sneaky, who sometimes "moderates" Storytimes. Real-life issues occur, such as weddings, elopements, congratulatory parties; and even a nasty Library patron who spills food on books and then doesn't wish to pay the fine, even becoming aggressive to the point of assault. Then the Library Director is poisoned, obviously intentionally, at a gathering; and Alicia and Gilly can't avoid being drawn into the amateur sleuthing in order to protect their friends and their respective families. The danger comes really close to "home" as well.

NC-17 (Maizie Albright Star Detective) by Larissa Reinhart

About the Book

NC-17 (Maizie Albright Star Detective)

Cozy Mystery/Women's Detective Fiction

3rd in Series

Past Perfect Press (December 4, 2018)

Paperback, 370 pages

ISBN13 - 9781732351660

Digital ASIN: B07HFVV7V7

#StillDetectiveing

As an ex-star of a hit teen detective show, Maizie Albright gets the youth demographic. Or so she thought. Now that she’s adulting, today’s kids make Maizie feel out of date. At least the youth she meets while doing community service at Black Pine’s exclusive healing resort, the Wellspring Center. When these teens aren’t vlogging their attempts to track down Big Foot, they’re trying to prove the Center is up to no good. Starting with the disappearance and possible murder of their not-as-young commander. A murder the police find as likely as Big Foot.

Maizie has her own suspicions about the new celebrity retreat. Particularly when she learns her ex-fiancé has been hired to run the Center. Kind of an issue when she thought Oliver was in prison. Kind of an issue when Nash, the man of her dreams, is out of commission.

Wait, not man of her dreams. Boss of her fantasies. Professionally speaking, of course.

While Maizie’s helping adolescent Youtubers detect a disappearance, she’s wrangling her mother’s wedding, assuaging an overzealous probation officer, and struggling to keep Nash Security Solutions solvent. Conspiracy theories collide with real-life catastrophes beginning with murder and possibly ending with Maizie’s life.

NC-17 (Maizie Albright Star Detective, #3)NC-17 by Larissa Reinhart


Maizie Albright is a young adult still striving to find her place in the world. Well, that is the case for almost all young adults, but Maizie's path there is a little different. She didn't have the usual American upbringing. She has been the star of a hit teen series, definitely not what most of us experience. Now she is employed by a private investigative agency, taught by a mentor who is her heartthrob, and here she is involved with a young group of "Bigfoot trackers." Definitely not a run of the mill existence for this snarky, smartmouthed, heroine with a mind of her own.

NC-17 is Book 3 in the Maizie Albright Star Detective Mystery series.
