Capital Consequences Redemption, Revenge, Trust, Tranquility (The Capital Trilogy #2) - Dawn Wright

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

 

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

 

Well dawn you have got another excellent book out there

 

Meeting with these four girls there is always going to be backstabbing and someone always thinking there the better person and arguments galore

 

But with the friendship between amber and Emily really not resolved and Brooke finding it hard to live without Jackson.

 

And summer well she is in this bubble with Oliver but they are so stressed out and snapping each other that sometimes you need a breakaway. when things start to get on a rocky road especially when you get the surprise of your life and you have to do the decent thing and tell your current partner a difficult secret that you have been keeping for him ie Oliver.

 

The 2nd book had a lot of emotional things in the characters are amazing that dawn has wrote about.

 

I am not giving anything away as you will have to discover for yourself what happens in this book but I will say this Friendship is always there weather you are arguing or hugging or supporting that friend.

 

I am giving this book 5/5

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I had a great time listening to this cozy mystery! I have been slowly working my way through this series after picking up the first book in the series not quite a year ago. This is the fourth book in the Cupcake Bakery Mysteries and while it can be read as a stand alone readers of the series will appreciate checking in with the cast of characters. I found myself quickly caught up in this mystery and I may have developed a mild craving for cupcakes before reaching the end of the story.

This installment takes the cupcake crew to the rodeo. I have to tell you that this development worried me a bit since sometimes when a series hits the road it looses some of its charm. There was no need to worry since the key characters went on this trip together so I didn't find myself missing anyone. The Juniper Pass rodeo had its own quirky group of characters including the man who runs the operation, the unpleasant rodeo star, and the owners of the food truck serving Barbecue right next to the Fairy Tale Bakery's cupcake truck.

Of course, there were a few problems for the crew to work out. There was a shooting at the rodeo's parade injuring Slim, then the rodeo star is murdered, and to top things off someone has sabotaged the cupcake bakery's food truck. Nobody knows if these events are connected but Melanie and her friends are in the middle of it all especially since they were the ones to discover the bull rider's body. There are some developments between Tate and Angie that kept the story interesting on the romantic front.

Susan Boyce continues to do a fabulous job with this series. I love the voices that she uses for this quirky group of characters. She really does a great job in bringing the story to life and is able to add a lot of excitement to the reading. Ms. Boyce has a very pleasant reading voice and I had no problem listening to her narration for hours at a time. I look forward to listening to more of her work in the future.

I would recommend this series to others. This book is filled with great characters and a mystery that kept me guessing. I also love the fact that we get to see enough of the dessert making process to make the cupcake bakery seem real (and to make me crave a few desserts). I can't wait to start the next book in the series very soon!

Initial Thoughts
The group goes to the rodeo in this installment to sell some cupcakes. Of course, all kinds of things go wrong and they find themselves in the middle of a mystery before long. It was nice to spend some time with this group of characters again. The narration was excellent.

Red Velvet Revenge - Jenn McKinlay

Such a fun book to listen to while in the car. Yesterday was my middle child's birthday and my youngest had chosen this book to be listened to in the car while we were traveling. My husband and children laughed out loud at many moments in the book. 

 

It is a very hot summer in AZ and Gina and Mel are discussing what they should do about their dwindling clientele (too hot to come out and enjoy a cupcake). When Oz and Marty show up with an old ice cream truck to go out and find the business. They convince the girls to come out for a test drive and the van dies. While they are discussing what they should do about the broken van, Slim and his wife Tammy show up and help the crew out by giving them a ride back to the shop. As a reward for his help, they give Slim a package of cupcakes and he loves the cupcakes so much he gets the girls to commit to coming to the rodeo and selling cupcakes there. While they are there, Slim gets shot and then the "star" of the rodeo is found dead in a bullpen. Who really tried to shoot Slim and who really murdered Ty are the questions that they try to answer to save Oz from being charged with the murder.

Superman: Darkseid's Revenge - Devan Aptekar,Eric A. Gordon,Steven E. Gordon
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

A good action-packed story about Darkseid coming to earth and turning Superman against Metropolis. This is an interesting book with great action illustrations. It also features Batman and Wonder Woman. A good read for young superhero fans. 

I also liked that it shows the heroes helping to clean up the city after the fight.
