The View from Rainshadow Bay was an implausible tale with bits of great story telling sprinkled within. It’s the story of a recently widowed woman who gets dragged into a mystery with multiple deaths and a scary killer after her. There are deep buried secrets to be uncovered and a romance quickly building. I was drawn to the main character, Shauna, for several reasons. I admired her strength to move on after her husbands death and I liked how fiercely she loved her son, thoug

No Charm Intended is the second book in the Cora Crafts mystery series by Mollie Cox Bryan. I hadn’t read the first book before beginning this one and although there were a few mentions from the first book that I didn’t get, the book was still plenty enjoyable. The book focuses on Cora Chevalier who has recently moved to the small town of Indigo Gap and started a crafting retreat at her Victorian home. The retreat brings together a mixed group of woman of all ages and backgro
Watching the Detectives by Julie Mulhern is the 5th book in the Country Club Murders and it is a wonderful addition to the series. The story takes place in the 1970’s and follows Ellison Russell as she tries to figure out who killed her interior decorator in her study. This cozy mystery is both funny and a wonderful read. It takes into account social issues of the time and weaves them seamlessly into the narrative while also providing an entertaining read. Ellison is a window
Alice and the Assassin follows spirited Alice Roosevelt, daughter of President Theodore Roosevelt, while she and her Secret Service body guard, Joseph St. Clair, attempt to solve a mystery connected to the assassination of President McKinley. While the story was well written and Alice was a very intriguing character the book dragged its way through the plot and I often fell asleep after only a few pages. There was great dialogue and the banter between Alice and her body guard
