Treasure in Paradise
Treasure in Paradise (A Tj Jensen Mystery) (Volume 7) - Kathi Daley

TJ takes her sisters, her grandfather, her friend, Kyle and 7 animals to Gull Island, SC to take care of an old friend of the family's retreat. When she arrives, she and Kyle and Doc find a body in the attic. They call the police and start to learn about the victim, the deputy and all the players who might have killed the man. The reason she is so persistent is that Doc, a retired coroner, says that the man was murdered. While this goes on, she deals with someone trying to force a sale of the land she is currently taking care of. She also learns that she has feelings for Kyle and he has the same for her. 

 

I have been enjoying Kathi Daley's books and have marked as many as I could for reading. I like that this one went to SC, which is somewhere my husband and I have vacationed together and so we know some of the places mentioned.

In A Dark Alley, They Meet – Dark Remnants by L K Hill #LKHill
Dark Remnants (Street Games #1) - L.K. Hill

 

 

Oh man, no way could I resist Dark Remnants by L K Hill. I love covers that have an eye on them. Are they really the doorway into someone’s soul?

 

Cover Art:  Kealan Patrick Burke

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Lovin’ that eye on the cover and it makes me feel like someone is watching me.Could it be the female protagonist, Kyra, or Gabe, the detective? Well, I say we all hook up and do some sleuthing.

Abstreuse City is a very dangerous place. L K Hill does a great job describing it. the homeless, the garbage, the smells and the dark, the pimps and the prostitutes.

 

 

Kyra and Gabe’s path collide when she finds out about a plan to turn the cops raid of a drug house into a slaughter house. She knew she had to intervene. And…could they be looking for the same person?

 

I’m not sure who Kyra is looking for, or why she is so curious about the dead prostitute, but I will find out.

 

I wasn’t sure if this would grab me like it did with the funny names, like Slip Mire, but I quickly got involved. Dark Remnants is fast paced and action packed, just the way I like it.

 

Kyra is hard as nails and quick on her feet, yet able to win the trust of others.She is able to read people, using it to her advantage. She looked like a junkie, from her spiky black hair to her black clothes with the hoodie and the track marks inside her elbows. Her eyes are so blue you couldn’t overlook them and she wears makeup to create a sickly pallor. She does no whining and crying, just has an intense desire to get the job done. Love a strong female character!

 

I love it!

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Dark Remnants by L K Hill.

Book Review - Attorney-at-Paw: A Chrissy the Shih Tzu Mystery by Diane Wing
Attorney-At-Paw: A Chrissy the Shih Tzu Mystery - Diane Wing

When her owner is murdered, Chrissy a Shih Tzu is adopted by Autumn Clarke who is determined to solve the murder and bring the culprit to justice. The story revolves around the bond between human and animal, one of the strongest on earth, and in this case Chrissy is able to send messages to Autumn.  This takes them on a road of discovery, adventure and of danger. On their journey the authors writing paints an excellent scene and you feel you are in the background like a shadow and obviously no murder mystery is complete without chemistry between heroine and the chief detective.

Anyone who owns an animal will enjoy this story and see the traits of Chrissy in their own pet, adding credence to the novel. The therapy and solace a pet can bring when one is that there darkest hour is remarkable and shines through in abundance in the story. The art of a good story is to keep the reader enrapt and wanting more and all through this book Diane Wing has achieved that as every page leads us on an exciting rip roaring ride and exercises the old grey cells.

An easy read for young readers and adults alike, a very simple but effective story and will have you falling in love with Chrissy and Amber, hoping that they can survive the perils and solve the mystery. I am hoping this is one of the first stories in a series and will be scouring the book shelves and internet for the second one when published. Praise for Diane Wing and her first Shih Tzu mystery.

A Gift of Bones (Sarah Booth Delaney, #19)
A Gift of Bones - Carolyn Haines

My first Christmas mystery of the season, and it's from one of my favorite series.  It was pretty good.

 

My personal observation about long-lasting series is that authors have a tendency to go bigger and bigger with each book.  Usually it's the plots that try to outdo each other, but sometimes, as in this case, it's a certain theme, or themes.  The Sarah Booth Delaney series has a very strong underlying theme centered on the power of love, family and friendship, and these themes have become more ... urgent?  as the series has progressed.

 

I'm not complaining - I love this series - but while I enjoyed the book thoroughly as I was reading it, it felt a tiny bit saccharide afterwards.  

 

Oh, and in this one the plot was definitely out there.  And way too overly labyrinthine.  I'm not sure it really worked, to be honest.

 

But I love the characters whole heartedly, and Zinnia Mississippi comes alive.  It might have been a 3.5 star read, but I've been quietly stewing for years about the Coleman story line, and it's finally come good in this book - that bumped it 1/2 star.  Overall, a solid read, that went by fast.
