This story had me right from the beginning and kept me until the end. I loved the pace and plot. I loved Marc and Aysia together . I did chuckle at times while reading this. I love Aysia’s drive and independence. Aysia and Marc had a very HOT connection. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.
The second book in the Whisky Business Mystery series, Death Distilled is a solid tale of old secrets, revenge and murder, both in the current day and hundreds of years ago. And that's what I liked best about this book, the blending of mysteries from two separate time periods and then tied together at the end. Add in secret passages and you've got an intoxicating cozy mystery.
My only gripe is there was too much packed into the book and I felt like it rambled a bit too long. At around 2/3 of the way through the book, I started to get a little bored. If a few scenes in the middle were trimmed or removed, it would've heightened the tension and suspense.
The colorful cast of characters and the side plot historical mystery really made the book engaging. I was far more interested in the historical mystery (and the hope of more secret rooms and passages) than I was in the minutae of the rock star soap opera. The conclusion was both thrilling and tragic and a great ending to the story.
Overall, an entertaining and enjoyable read and I liked it well enough to look forward to the next book in the series.
Knocked Up and Tied Down is sexy and a bit naughty with the teacher/student aspect and sort of a second chance romance. While Elijah and Nikki don't actually seal the deal the first time around, the attraction is certainly there.
Elijah is an oh so sexy professor and it's all he can do to not act on his attraction to his student. He and Nikki can't forget their magnetic pull and when they come together a few years later, it's fan yourself sexy and they can't get enough of each other. Of course, as is obvious from the title, an unexpected pregnancy throws a wrench into the works.
I can't say that I necessarily felt the romance between this pair, but the sexual chemistry is definitely there. It is an interesting story, but I felt that a bit more development on the romance between Elijah and Nikki could've easily transformed this one into a five-star read.
While this isn't my favorite book from Minx, it is well worth the read and I will continue to check out future works from her.
