Book Blast and Giveaway: Twisted Tea Christmas by Laura Childs

[Because facebook has very unfairly blocked my blog, Punya Reviews..., from being promoted on their platform, I'm using booklikes as a "gateway" of sorts so I have a link to promote. It's been over 7 months but I tried for the first 4 months to reach them through any means I could find without any luck whatsoever. Doesn't look like I'll get the block removed anytime soon, if ever. More on what happened can be found here.]

A MADNESS OF SUNSHINE by Nalini Singh
A Madness of Sunshine - Nalini Singh

Anahera returns to her home town of Golden Cove after the death of her husband. She comes back full of rage and bitterness but hides it well. When Miriama, a local girl, goes missing the town looks for her. Anahera becomes close to the cop in the town, Will. The two are attracted to each other but because of their pasts they try to deny the attraction. Both are broken but with Miriama missing other pasts come up in the town including the town's past. Anahera gives information to Will and together they try to piece the town's pasts, residents' pasts, and current events to find Miriama.

 

I enjoyed this story. There is a lot of pain in the town as well as both Will and Anahera's life. I was glad that Anahera was able to fit back into Golden Cove although she knew she could not stay. I liked that she was able to befriend Jemima, the wife of a childhood friend. The friendship caused both to be able to say things that others would not have understood since they had not gone through them. Both needed a friend.

 

I appreciated that Will was flawed. He had his own baggage and was able to handle Anahera's anger and rage and understand it. Golden Cove had its secrets but also gave up the secrets.

 

I have to admit I did not anticipate the ending, was actually surprised by part of it. A good story that kept me interested and not wanting to put it down.

NEEDLED TO DEATH by Maggie Sefton
Needled to Death - Maggie Sefton

Kelly and Jennifer take a knitting group out to Vickie's farm to see her alpacas. When they get there Kelly finds Vickie dead. The police seem to look at Vickie's estranged husband for the murder. Kelly is not happy with that and starts digging deeper. When Vickie's daughter ends up dead, Vickie knows the police are not looking in the right direction. She figures it out as she is doing the books for the attorneys for Vickie's estate. But how does she prove who murdered Vickie? And who murdered Vickie's daughter? Why?

 

I enjoyed this story. I have read other stories in this series (out of order.) I like the main cast of characters. Each has their flaws and quirks. They are like old friends to me. This time I did figure it out (alright, so it was the last quarter of the book.) I also figured out the motive although it was circumstantial until the end. I liked the mystery and solution. Kelly is not afraid to ask questions but man, she came close this time. Good thing she had back-up.

 

I look forward to more of the series.

56 Days - Catherine Ryan Howard
I saw a lot of the bloggers that I routinely read had raved about this book so I decided to grab a copy.
I'm so glad that I did too! It was a slice of creepiness that I needed. I enjoy a mystery that is a bit of a mind twist, and this was definitely that!
I have one gripe though. 
At times, mostly in the beginning, the viewpoints changed so fast I lost track of what was happening for a hot minute. Then I'd be like okay I see what's happening here... it just bummed me out that the transition between viewpoints wasn't more clear.
Other than that I loved it. I want to read more from this author too!

Teamwork
Gone But Not Forgotten - Charlie Cochet

This is book 1 in a brand new series, TIN. This story can be read on its own - but I would recommend reading the THIRDS series beforehand. If you haven't then it is not only an excellent reference to these characters, it is the story before the story.

 

Dexter returns to us in this TIN series opener as AKA "Chaos."  Likewise, his hunky husband returns as his partner Sloane AKA "Atlas."  Learning to enjoy and hate his job at the same time - he goes on one of the worst missions of his career.  Learning to be a spy has been fun and a challenge, but sometimes it is not fun and games.

 

Sloane knows this latest task is within their wheelhouse to solve.  It is going to take more than the normal assignment however, as they are up against a madman who is not afraid to kill to cover up his crimes.  While he has faith in their teams abilities to get this done - there are a lot of unknowns that can still go wrong. 

 

I really enjoyed getting back into the Dex & Sloane life.  Reading about them and the adventures of their team is always a joy.  This new team seems to be coming right along.  I could not put this down it was so great!  I am already excited about the next story.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
