Poison and Prejudice by Chelsea Field
Poison and Prejudice (An Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery) (Volume 4) - Chelsea Field

Izzy is working for a celebrity client and when she finds a dead body in the trunk of a car things get complicated. The cops ask her to keep the body in the trunk, and act like it never happened. While also continuing her job, this gets even more crazy of Izzy. 

 

Conner isn't happy with Izzy working this case, but he knows that he can't stop her, so he and his sister offer to help her out with it. But that makes it a little more dangerous as well. 

 

This book was another great addition to this series. I adored Izzy and Conner together, and I really enjoyed the plot line as well. I'm wondering if Izzy's neighbor is going to figure out what she really does for a living, and I can't wait for more in this series.

Eat, pray, Die by Chelsea Field
Eat, Pray, Die (An Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery, #1) - Chelsea Field

Izzy has been in L.A. training for a secret job as a poison tester for almost a year now. She needs a lot of money quickly to pay of the loan shark her ex-husband stuck her with. 
But with her first assignment things get sticky when she has to find out who is trying to murder a client. Her new boss is also very attractive, and she doesn't know weather he is being serious about them getting together or not, and she would rather just work on trying to stay alive. 

This book was a hilarious good read. It starts off funny, and ends that way as well. I loved the main characters, and the plot line as well. I can't wait to find out more, and what will happen next!

"The Heirs" by Susan Rieger

 

My Thoughts....

 

What a story that tell of the well to do family [the heirs of Rupert Falkes] and oh my what is found out after this patriarch passes.  I thought this novel was well written with such a incredible character development that will certainly keep your attention to the end. I liked how this author tell of the wife Eleanor who was Rupert's wife and their five sons [ Will, Sam, Tom, Jack and Harry] who were Princeton educated and so successful and all the grands are girls. What happens when a letter arrives with a women saying that she had two sons by Rupert and wanted them to share in the inheritance?  As Rupert's past is questioned and his secrets surface that simply smears his families reputation what will happen?  How will the family members treat this information?  In the end  as the mystery comes out was there any truth to any of this?

 

The author gives the reader quite a good read of family and the lives it touches as it goes through 'marriage, parenthood, fidelity, infidelity, Eleanor's past, even giving the reader some incredible dry wit' along with some surprises.  In the end the reader gets a good  page turner read  of a wonderful saga that is even juicy, entertaining, somewhat humorous times.  

 

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. So exciting!

Review:

"Blinders Keepers" by John Rachel

My Thoughts...

Wow, this author never disappoints...he knows how to keep your attention as he did with this satire read. There was a good opening, plot, with hilarious humor[laugh out loud], metaphors, insanity, adventure,surprises, political atmosphere of the white house...as we are given this satire of this 'young man [Noah]with one idealistic mindset of it will all come out in the wash.' What a journey this was for this young man who will leave his hometown in Missouri and end up getting mixed up accidentally that propelled him into being a fugitive. My thoughts about what was going on with Noah was that the 'root of all of his travails was just one study misunderstanding!' We find Noah is being sort after by every intelligence agency in the country.

The secondary characters are for the most part down right entertaining that will definitely keep you turning the pages so see what is going on next.

This is one story that the reader will see that almost nothing and no one seems to be who they are. Definitely the reader will be left in a thought provoking state. Now, I will stop here and just say this is one you will have to pick up and see for yourself how well this author brings it all out to the reader.

Be ready for a long read that will have you switching around from scenes to scenes with characters that will have 'things to say in quite a memorable way.' In the end "Blinders Keepers" was just a well written novel for one to sit back and let the insanity unfold.

Thank you to the author for letting me read your novel and my giving a honest opinion of the read.
