Holiday Murder

Review: Holiday Murder by Leslie Meier

Holiday Murder combines two previously published books in the Lucy Stone mystery series, of which there are currently 25 – Mistletoe Murder and Christmas Cookie Murder. The first book, Mistletoe Murder is also the first book in the series and this combination seemed like the perfect way to dip my toe into the series, which finding a fun mystery to add to my seasonal reading list.

Review: Body on Baker Street by Vicki Delany

Body on Baker Street is the second book in the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery series. In the tradition of the genre, you don’t need to have read the first book to enjoy this one. There is some major character backstory referenced throughout the book, but none of it is necessary to enjoying the story or understanding the characters.

Fierce Kingdom

Review: Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips

Fierce Kingdom takes place over a span of three tense hours, which was about the time it took me to read the book. Though I can’t say that I was hooked from the very first page, once I was hooked, I couldn’t put the book down. The need to know the outcome kept me turning pages even during the slow part in the middle.

Edinburgh Twilight

Review: Edinburgh Twilight by Carole Lawrence

Edinburgh Twilight is the first book in what is set to be a series of mystery novels centered on the main character, Detective Inspector Ian Hamilton and his, always aiming to please, partner Sergeant Dickerson, as well as a number of strong supporting characters. For an introductory book, and the first I have read by this author, Carole Lawrence hits it out of the park.The writing style was beautiful and believable and the description made me long to be back in Edinburgh.
