The Moonlight Wedding (Married in Malibu) by Lucy Kevin, Bella Andre
The Moonlight Wedding - Lucy Kevin,Bella Andre

 

 

Love is about taking chances when it comes to matters of the heart. Well Kevin most definitely puts her heart into this rollercoaster romance. The Moonlight Wedding may be a whirlwind, but it's not always smooth sailing. The musician and the wedding planner are about to discover just like in life, when the odds seem insurmountable, love finds a way. Lucas and Meg are about to rewrite the stars with this sentimental romance. Lucy Kevin did good with this marvelous read.

Dance. Love. Learn. Repeat. - Lucy Iviso... Dance. Love. Learn. Repeat. - Lucy Ivison Tom Ellen,Fabienne Pfeiffer

Das Buch ist abwechselnd aus Phoebes und Lukes Sicht geschriebene, was einen tiefen Einblick in die Gedanken- und Gefühlswelt der beiden ermöglicht. Dadurch habe ich mich beiden sehr nah gefühlt und ihre inneren Konflikte hautnah miterlebt. Auch die Kapitellänge war sehr angenehm und ich kam schnell in einen zügigen Lesefluss und hatte richtig Spaß die beiden bei ihrem Uni-Alltag zu begleiten. 

Das Buch ist teilweise ganz lustig geschrieben und leicht zu lesen, allerdings gibt es auch viele schlechtere Sachen, so wie die Galerie der Schande und die vielen Alkohol-Exzesse. Trotzdem würde mich interessieren, wie die Geschichte der beiden weiter geht. Immerhin hat die Autorin nur über das erste Semester geschrieben, dem ja noch einige folgen werden.

For the last year I've become very picky about what I choose to read. I believe I'm very sure about my likes and dislikes at this point. I'm a Literary Fiction and Historical Gal. I really want to read my own books, but have bitten off more than I can chew, in past years, in requests. 

 

Going forward, perusing book websites to acquire more books will be in my past. I want to concentrate on reading what I've already obtained. My concentration will be put on the social media sites that are more of my lane and those are Goodreads and Booklikes. I'm a recovering Instagram scroller and Youtube time waster. This year I will have more focus and drive for what inspires me and allows me to thrive.

Star Spangled Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery #11)
Star Spangled Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery #11) - Leslie Meier Please see all of my reviews on my blog at https://www.robinlovesreading.com.

Mrs. Prudence Pratt is Lucy Stone’s nemesis. More accurately put, Mrs. Pratt is Kudo’s, the family’s dog, nemesis. Kudos keeps escaping and killing her blue-ribbon chickens. Before the Stone family can correct the matter, Mrs. Pratt will go to any means necessary to have the dog destroyed. As if enough isn’t going on in Tinker’s Cove, there are some trying to cancel the upcoming fireworks display and a colony of nudists, or more accurately referred to, naturists, have descended upon the local pond.

Oh, and let’s not forget the serious concern that the lobster trade might be affected by poachers. As a part-time reporter, Lucy is trying to cover at least one of these stories...well, she would rather leave the naturists to her boss.

Sort of a spoiler here...but each story in this cozy mystery series contains a murder...

Mrs. Pratt is dead. Her manner of death is beyond all doubt a murder. Since Lucy is concerned that the police are looking at her for it, she decides to check into it for herself. Will she be able to locate the murderer without bringing danger to herself?

For a relatively short book, the story is quite busy. There is the requisite family drama, the aforementioned murder, Lucy’s hectic job, and a bit more. This is a nice addition to the series that I have been enjoying thus far. This is a quick read, and despite some serious issues, it is rather light-hearted.

There are twenty-five books in the series thus far, and book twelve is New Year’s Eve Murder.

Father's Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery)
Father's Day Murder (A Lucy Stone Mystery) - Leslie Meier Please see all of my reviews on my blog at https://www.robinlovesreading.com.

Part-time reporter Lucy Stone is about to get a break from her family to attend a newspaper conference. Unfortunately, it is just before Father’s Day, so Lucy has some juggling to do. It’s not as fun as she imagines. She misses her family more than she thought she would, the panels are rather boring, and some of the other attendees really get on her nerves.

Shockingly, Luther Read, owner of a virtually bankrupt newspaper suddenly dies, and the circumstances are quite suspicious, despite being first ruled an asthma attack. As a matter of fact, Luther had enemies, so there is more than one suspect.

Luther Read is no stranger to Lucy. His family has a second home in Lucy’s hometown of Tinker’s Cove. So, per usual, Lucy decides to investigate. All the while, Lucy gets to enjoy parts of Boston and even has time to shop for her family. Meanwhile, husband Bill works hard at running their household.

As Lucy goes further in seeking out Luther’s murderer, she again places herself in harm’s way. This cozy mystery is fast-paced with Lucy being out of her element, while she excels at being an amateur detective. Father’s Day Murder is book ten in the series. The next book is Star Spangled Murder with twenty-five to-date. These are all delightful reads and I look forward to continuing.
