JUST PARDON MY FRENCH by Jinx Schwartz
Just Pardon My French (Hetta Coffey Series, Book 8) - Jinx Schwartz

Hetta, Jan, and Rhonda are in Paris when they are "pressed" into service to help create a diversion. Once they realize they are being left out of the circle as to why they are needed, they start their own investigation. They manage to figure out most of what is being kept from them. Then they manage to solve the case.

 

I have never read any of this series. I will have to rectify that omission. I was able to follow the story line, but I missed the inside jokes. Hetta and Jan are a hoot. I laughed so much when they started their snark. I liked what they used to get the information they needed. The secondary characters were good. I wish Jenks would have stayed longer with Hetta instead of jetting in and out. I figured out the mystery also, but like Hetta, there was one part I did not see coming. I would not get on Hetta's bad side. I enjoyed this very much and plan on reading more of Hetta and Company.

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.]

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.

A FATAL YARN by Peggy Ehrhart
A Fatal Yarn - Peggy Ehrhart

The newest entry in the Knit and Nibble Mystery series has Pamela and Bettina searching for the killer of the mayor of Arborville after an arrest has been made. Looking at what they know about the mayor they find several good suspects--if only they didn't have alibis. Will the alibis hold up with Pamela and Bettina on the trail? Will they find the murderer before getting into too much trouble?

 

I enjoyed this story. I liked how they are methodical, for them, in trying to figure out the killer. They have made a few mad as they ask their questions. I always enjoy seeing Wilfred again as he supports his wife and Pamela. I also enjoy visiting with the rest of the group. The new secondary characters are interesting. They bring some suspects along with them. A possible tree-hugger and tree dresser, a woman who resells expensive designer clothing, a former mayoral candidate. I, once again, did not figure out the killer until it was explained. I look forward to seeing the regulars again.

A DOSE OF MURDER by Lori Avocato
A Dose of Murder - Lori Avocato

Pauline is burned out as a nurse so she quits and finds a job as a medical fraud investigator. She is sent after a woman she went to school with who is suspected of faking an injury to collect worker's comp. She is to follow and get pictures of her doing things that will negate her worker's comp claim. She is quickly taught how to do the job by Goldie. Then Jagger turns up and takes over her training including getting her involved in his case. Will she succeed? Will they trust each other? Will they solve their cases?

 

I had a blast with this book. I plan to read others in this series. Pauline is funny. She is in over her head and reminds you of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum but she has managed not to blow up a car yet. She is smart and it takes her some time, at times, to understand what she is to do but once she does she is off and running Jagger is mysterious and sexy. He always turns up when Pauline needs him but he gives nothing away. She is always questioning and receiving no answers from him. But somehow they seem to come together. I am going to enjoy watching them.

 

The story was funny. Watching them work the case is a riot because Jagger knows what is going on but Pauline is operating in the dark most of the time. The world building is good and I look forward to more of Pauline and Jagger.
