Review: Killer Party
Killer Party (A Tourist Trap Mystery) - Lynn Cahoon

I liked this, but I didn't love it. While the mystery was interesting and intriguing, I didn't care for any of Greg's friends, and that made me feel a little apathetic towards solving the murder and seriously Jill, get over the whole relationship angst. The surprising and exciting ending was a great way to end the book, and overall it was entertaining and enjoyable. Mostly, I just enjoy another visit to South Cove and catching up with Jill, Greg and the Coffee, Books & More gang (And I really concerned about Aunt Jackie!)

The Crow Trap
The Crow Trap - Ann Cleeves

Series: Vera Standhope #1

 

 

The first Vera Standhope book explores how a suicide may be linked to some subsequent murders and offers a late introduction to Vera herself. Overall I found the book to be quite enjoyable although I found the ending to be a bit of a let down, somehow. I do plan on exploring the rest of the series though.

 

This also marks my 144th book read this year, which completes my reading challenge. Not sure if I'll up it.

Reading progress update: I've read 39%.
The Crow Trap - Ann Cleeves

And now we finally get introduced to Vera Stanhope!

 

We had to go through the stories of all three women leading up to the second death: Rachael, Anne and Grace.

 

I'm not sure I'd like all the books to be like this.

September 2017 Wrap Up
The Unleashing (Call Of Crows Book 1) - Shelly Laurenston
Killer Party (A Tourist Trap Mystery) - Lynn Cahoon
Secrets in Death - J.D. Robb
Brighton Belle - Sara Sheridan

The volunteer position I took on in June for my son's school PTO board is proving to be a full-time job and my reading suffered as a result. 10 books is the least amount of books I have read in any one month all year. A lot of what I did read was "meh" to "grit my teeth and bare it to get the square filled"; the four books attached to this post is the best of my reading this month.

 

I participated in the Fandom Box swap and Grimlock did an amazing job of finding just the right things to put into my box. Luckily, the receiver of the box I put together liked what I put in their box.

 

Here's to hoping that October has better reading in store for me.

Review: Killer Party by Lynn Cahoon
Killer Party (A Tourist Trap Mystery) - Lynn Cahoon

A good quick read. Jill is up to her sleuthing ways while also juggling school, her business, her aunt's health, and her relationship with Gregg. This time, Gregg is not the lead investigator, but he enlists Jill's help in finding his friend's killer. Lots of red herrings, but the killer was there all during the investigation. Still recommend this cozy series.
