Spookie Town – All Things Slip Away by Kathryn Meyer Griffith @KathrynG64
All Things Slip Away - Kathryn Meyer Griffith


Kathryn Meyer Griffith is a prolific writer and her Spookie Town Murder Mystery series has been a big hit for her. She is currently working on Book 7. Woo Hoo. Congratulations Kathryn.


I love the fabulous cover.

All Things Slip Away (Spookie Town Murder Mystery, #2)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads




The Prologue for All Things Slip Away filled me in on the highlights of the Spookie Town Murder Mystery Series Book I, Scaps of Paper, and thank goodness. It has been a while since I read it, so I needed a refresher. You could begin reading here, but I am loving this series so much, I would highly recommend beginning at the beginning.


NOW…it’s ten years later and Frank Lester, a Chicago Homicide detective that moved to Spooky town, has found the serial killer he thought he had taken out is back, and he is on the hunt…for revenge.


I read a lot of Young Adult novels, so it is refreshing to be meeting some older characters that carry baggage and memories, and lust does not override their emotions. The romance is a slow burn, but smolders throughout the pages.


There is so much more to the killer than meets the eye. He has his own issues and problems that he cannot overcome. He is driven to seek revenge. The villain is one of those bad guys that can evoke a moment of sympathy for him.


Abigail is Frank’s love interest, but he is not alone in his desire to date her.The sheriff has his eye on her too. Myrtle is a neighbor and she is quite the character. She gave me some laughs and I love some humor with my murder. My heart went out to Laura and Nick, and the rest of their family, two children whose mother is ill and they struggle to even feed themselves. The two kids broke my heart, yet put a smile on my face.


The suspense is ramping up as the pacing takes me to the next event and I am eager, yet apprehensive about HIS and Frank’s next meeting.


Kathryn Meyer Griffith’s has an ability to draw me into the story so deep that I feel like I am walking in Abigail’s shoes, being stalked, feeling like someone is following me, watching me, having me looking over my shoulder, ‘hiding out’, keeping low.


I love that Kathryn can stretch the story, all the while keeping me on edge. It has been months since HE has been seen…life goes on…but, we all know it isn’t over. The tension builds as I wait, wait for the explosion that is about to come.


Well, I guess you can tell how much I loved All Things Slip Away. The story is fabulous and kept me totally engrossed, the characters came to life on the pages through Kathryn’s words and I fell in love with them. The peripheral characters became just as important to me as the main ones. The mystery, yeah, we know who he is, sorta but that does not take away anything from the story.


I highly recommend any of her work. Kathryn has never disappointed me.

Book Review - How To Steal A Thief by AJ Sherwood
How to Steal a Thief (Unholy Trifecta #2)How to Steal a Thief by A.J. Sherwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So I LOVE AJ Sherwood's books. To date she hasn't written a book I don't like and this one is no exception.

Ivan... oh Ivan. In this second installment of The Unholy Trifecta we get to learn more about Ivan while getting to revisit Ari, Carter, Remi and Kyou. It's yet another fun filled romp but with a touch more mayhem this time around - I mean, it's _Ivan's_ book after all. That man is a fun-filled lollipop triple dipped in chaos.

In this book Ivan is bored so he takes a job which is boring just to alleviate the boredom. Until it's not boring at all. Steal a stamp. That was the job. Break into an apartment and steal a stamp. But the apartment he broke into belonged to med student Aiden Stalworth who'd already had almost everything - including the stamp - stolen from him by his greedy uncle despite him being the one who was supposed to inherit it. Cue Ivan's Robin Hood complex.

But then the criminal world starts showing up in New Orleans, all after the same stamp and now Ivan and his team are protecting Aiden from some really bad dudes while running a scam to get Aiden's inheritance back from his greedy uncle and somewhere along the way Ivan falls hard for Aiden - and Aiden falls right back.

This book was a fun filled romp of crazy men, nasty relations and Remi being adorably bad-ass. Also, her tee-shirt fu is _on point_. Just sayin'.

Next up -Kyou. Squee!

Codename: Chimera by J K Persy #JKPersy
Codename: Chimera - J.K. Persy

Very pretty cover for Codename: Chimera by J K Persy. I got this book back in February of 2014, but didn’t read it until 1.15.15. I loved it and I don’t have any excuse for waiting so long to share it with you. The cover does not make me think of the cozy mystery that it is.


Codename: Chimera

Amazon / Goodreads




During their investigation, they learned about a project called Chimera and now the mystery deepens. Is it a conspiracy? Will they kill anyone to keep a secret?


A convoluted mystery centered around a medallion. Who does it belong to?


Codename: Chimera lacked a sense of urgency, but a lot of cozies do. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy them and I loved this one. I was super curious about the outcome and the deaths that follow the medallion.


I loved the trio and was happy to be along for their adventure. Codename: Chimera by J K Persy is not what I expected from looking at the cover, but it all made sense in the end.


The brain teasers are a bonus. I stopped and spent a lot of time trying to solve them. I wonder if you will too.

Book Review: Killer Bond, A Ward Security Book by Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliot
Killer Bond (Ward Security #5)Killer Bond by Jocelynn Drake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG what is NOT to love about another Ward Security Book by Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliott.

To say that I absolutely adore the world that they have created would be an understatement. Every single book is well thought out, well researched, has an amazing plot that sucks you in and lots of explosions. There are always explosions in a Drake and Elliot book. They like to make things go boom. Although... nothing went boom 'on screen' in this book. It was a bit of surprise, that.

Daniel Hendricks, Ward Security's mild-mannered, fish-out-of-water accountant has finally drummed up the hutzpah to take a vacation outside of the continental USA. That's how boring he is, going to Bermuda is a BIG adventure for him. Sun, sand, margaritas and - woah - a super hot guy to have a vacation fling with. Who knows, maybe this stepping out of his comfort zone will be good for him.

Edward Raines is a CIA agent sent to Bermuda to hunt down and kill a traitor before he can sell national top security secrets to the highest bidder. By any means necessary. So why does his target not seem like a cold blooded secret seller? In fact Daniel is hot, sweet, and the physical connection they have is off the charts!

But Daniel is not a traitor, he's an accountant from Cincinnati, and the case of mistaken identity has put him directly in the cross hairs of some very very bad people while the powers that be in the CIA is intent on using him to flush the traitors out, whether he wants to or not. Thrust into a James Bond like world of exotic locations, car chases, shoot outs and espionage, Daniel has to reconcile the man he thought he was having a vacation romance with to the person that Edward really is. He can either accept the incendiary attraction between them, thereby forgiving Edward of his duplicity, or not trust the man trying to keep him alive and get him back home to Ward Security. Tough choice.

And if he does give in to his feelings for Edward, what happens when their 'mission' is over and Daniel goes back to crunching numbers while Edward disappears into the shadows once more?

Book Review for Queen by Kerri Ann
Queen (Restless Souls MC #1) - Kerri Ann
Title: Queen
Series: Restless Souls MC #1
Author: Kerri Ann
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: February 7, 2019
Reviewed by Angels With Attitude Book Reviews
Arc copy provided for honest review
5 stars
The Queen, is a woman not to be toyed with. She takes what was owed, keeping it until the debt is paid. I was a debt to be paid. I'd understood my lot in life early, knowing my life was forfeit. Until the day he arrived. 

Dragged across the scrub, laid in the stone house, I watched and listened. I saw who he was. A kindred soul that was now a debt like me. 


The Queen was playing her game and he was just a new piece on the board. His strength, his fury won't help against her cunning, and deciding to help him could be my death.


Following the story of the Broken Bows MC, the Restless Souls MC continues the battle with the vindictive wicked cartel Queen. 


Tick tock. A chiming bell.

I'm your little slice of hell.


The King of cream. You made him fall.

A Queen. The heart. I'll stand tall.

The pieces set. The places dealt.

There's nowhere left to run.

I've set the board. I've set the trap.

Now it's your time come.


Down and down, until I win.
Your downfall is my sin.
The Knights will fail. One by one.
Until all the King's men fall.
Their power wains, I'm ready to maim.
They'll reap what they have wrought.
The victory is mine.
Brought out by their design.
Tick Tock. Tick Tock.
Time's up.
The Queen will win.


The Queen is a standalone, but is best read after King and Pawn from the Broken Bows MC. Recommended to read Christmas at the Clubhouse Anthology.


This new book explores the lifes of Vaca and Codero aka Cap
Let's start off by say this is a fairly new author for us and we really enjoyed this latest story as it was dark,edgy,full of drama and it started off with a bang and just sucked you wright in.
This story is not for the faint of heart and might have triggers for some as the plot is very dark and its content contains graphic scenes.
When we started reading this story we were a little but on edge as we haven't loved all this authors books in the past but, in this current read the author drew you right in from the very first pages with just one heinous act.
The character's mainly the main ones Cap and Vaca were really strong character's. Corero aka Cap's life was filled with tragedy and neglect and a man who grew up on the streets and then joined the military became a self made man who is now the President of the Restless Souls. Vaca was given as payment for a debt owed by her family now would live a life of slavery,torture and rape for the next 15 years.These two broken souls are thrown together due to the betrayal of another but, perhaps fate has intervened and might just turn out be each other saviors.
We enjoyed the character's most of them are dark and broken other's sadistic and mad but, we will say that the content of the story put us on edge and made us more uncomfortable more than once because of all the the sick stuff that transpired throughout it.
If I had to pick a favorite character mine would have to be Vaca as this women surprised me time and time again after all she endure she still stayed strong and willful. Omg ! Vaca's story was enough to bring me to tears as well as my knee's.My heart broke for this women and the life she was force to lead.I have no other words than just say heart wrenching...
Cap was another who's pain you felt who had trouble dealing with death of someone who he considered a brother.Cap's pain was drowning him and your heart ached for the devastation he was experiencing as his life was spiraling out of control. 
The story was so dark as well as intense and it had so much going on in it to keep your interest and engrossed and turning the pages.Drama kept unfolding one tragic event after another secrets coming to life but,among the chaos their in lyes one savior for them all.
The story and plot effected more than just the main character's and all of them where living in hell and under the rule of a sadist and my heart broke for all those other broken souls too and as the plot forges on you see just how sick this Queen really turned out to be because a bombshell is dropped right into our laps that we never saw coming and it's an earth shattering one!
The story does not end on a cliffhanger but ,we were left with a lot of unanswered questions.Like who are these other players ? Is there more than one traitor ? Is there more than one game in play? and so forth...
This dark read was very entraining !
Mother of two insanely (well trained) sarcastic men, wife to a dangerously smolder inducing grumble bunny (fireman), and friend to some amazing ladies (you know who you are). Thanks for reading, thanks for being a friend, and I look forward to meeting you in the future for drinks, danger and laughs.
Living in Northern Ontario, Canada, Kerri loves to read, travel and find new reasons to write you fantastic love stories. Remember, not all love is clean. Dark, light, angsty, sexually charged and twisted—that’s her genre.
It’s heart wrenching stories where the muse directs her. As the instrument of their lives, the stories are told piece by piece with emotion, that has the story read like a movie. You can hope for the good guy to win, but it won’t always happen. She can’t guarantee an HEA (happily ever after) or HFN (happy for now), because life doesn't always have those. 
Enjoy the OMG's and tears. Tear your hair out, toss a book or two, because I want you to feel their pain too. As they live it, absorb it on the pages.
