Ditched 4 Murder (Sophie Kimball Mystery) by [Eaton, J.C.]

 

Book Description:

 

 

She’s handling a bridezilla—and hunting a killer . . .
 
Moving from Minnesota to Arizona was a big change for Sophie “Phee” Kimball. She’s much closer to her mother’s retirement community now—which can drive her a little crazy, but at least her mom, Harriet, has her book club and her chiweenie dog, Streetman, to keep her company. And now there’s even more activity, with Aunt Ina’s upcoming wedding. The seventy-four-year-old bride has roped Phee into working on the tent, the pastries, and even her headpiece in preparation for the ceremony. But it’s Harriet who really gets demanding when a dead body turns up yards from her front door.
 
Aunt Ina’s fiancé is acquainted with the victim—a local millionaire restaurateur murdered at the golf course. Working for a private investigator, Phee is drawn into the case—not just professionally but personally, since Harriet is in a panic about her safety. With a killer on the loose, Phee vows to figure out the plot—that is, if her side job as a wedding planner doesn’t kill her first . . .

 

 

My Review:

 

I enjoyed reading Ditched 4 Murder.  There was never a dull moment.  The characters were a riot.  The author effortlessly helped me visualize each quirky and colorful character and every hilarious moment.  However, at times I felt annoyed at the main character for not speaking up for herself too many times in the story.  For the most part the flow of the story was steady, but there were a few lagging moments that took too long to get to the point.

 

Ditched 4 Murder by J.C. Eaton is the second book in the Sophie Kimble series.  If you're looking for straight-up humor, I recommend this book.

 

Thank you Netgalley and Kensington for the ARC

The Bachelor Contract (The Bachelors of Arizona) by Rachel Van Dyken
The Bachelor Contract (The Bachelors of Arizona) - Rachel Van Dyken

 

Never have I lost my heart as quickly as I have with Rachel Van Dyken's, Bachelors of Arizona series.  Brock and Jane were the beginning of something wonderful.  Bentley and Margot were the culmination of something special and Brant and Nikki were like a dance with destiny.  The Bachelor Contract is as captivating as it is heartbreaking.  What began as a beautiful romance, lost it's innocence and became a journey of pain, guilt and salvation.  I have yet to piece my heart back together.  Every author has a story that symbolizes the best of them and I think, The Bachelor Contract is Ms. Van Dyken's signature tale.  The message is powerful, the hope is inspiring and the love story is everlasting.

THE BACHELOR AUCTION by Rachel Van Dyken
The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors of Arizona) - Rachel Van Dyken

Brock's grandfather wants him married and so arranges an auction to do it.  Grandfather is sly to get Brock to see it his way.  Jane is a cleaning company owner who Grandfather has hired to clean the family's ranch which Brock will get upon his marriage.  Sparks fly between Brock and Jane.

 

This is a cute, fun read.  I laughed.  I had a tear in my eye.  Mostly though, I had a good time reading it.  I enjoyed Brock and Jane.  I liked how the story went back and forth between the two of them.  I look forward to the rest of the series.  Perfect for the beach or porch as summer comes to a close.

My Great-Aunt Arizona
My Great-Aunt Arizona - Gloria Houston

My Great-Aunt Arizona written by Gloria Houston is a 4.0 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. This story is from the point of view of a young girl telling about her great-aunt named Arizona. Arizona teaches at a one room school house for many years. The children come and go, but she touches each of them in a special way. In the end on the story Arizona dies, but her niece knows she lives on in the hearts of all the students she had an impact on. I think this book is perfect for any teacher at any level to read. It can also be used in the classroom at the beginning of the school year to demonstrate that teachers are not scary, but here to help. It also is a good lesson in a little kindness goes a long way.

The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken
The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors of Arizona) - Rachel Van Dyken

This was an adorable spin on a Cinderella romance. Jane was the perfect mix of Cinderalla and modern woman. She was introverted enough that I could easily relate to her hatred of going out on the town, but not so shy that she didn't stand up for herself when push came to shove. She even owns a cleaning company - a great modern twist on the theme - and loses a shoe along the way. The downside was Brock (I think). The hero was great. I loved him and his family, although they got a bit over the to towards the end. It was the names that did this book in for me. Even by the end I couldn't keep the brothers apart. All with similar names that start with B, and we meet them within pages of each other. The similar names just sort of merged into one giant Wellington son instead of one older brother and two younger twins. I made a cheat sheet half way through so I could keep them straight. I didn't like it. The story was a lot of fun. There were some sad moments as both Brock and Jane deal with their past and how it has changed the way they cope with the present. There are happy and laughing moments that I didn't want to see end. But the whole brother name thing just hung over it all. I'm hoping that book two helps to separate the brothers a little more for me because they were all a lot of fun and I really want to see how their separate lives all intertwine as they find their love. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*
