Ornaments of Death
Ornaments of Death: A Josie Prescott Antiques Mystery (Josie Prescott Antiques Mysteries) - Jane K. Cleland

Josie is having her annual Christmas party and her cousin, Ian, has arrived from England and she is beyond delighted to have him arrive. When he goes missing, she tries to find him and when he is missing for more than a day, a body is found and when she identifies it as her cousin, she finds out that his daughter is now missing. 

 

This story had many twists and turns and looked at ancestry and antiques and provenance. I had found it last year when my girls started getting braces and borrowed it, but ran out of time to read it, so I just would borrow and read a bit more, finally reading it now.

Book, Line and Sinker
Book, Line and Sinker - Jenn McKinlay

This is Book 3 of the Library Lover's Mysteries. 

 

Lindsey is on her second year in the community, she is dating Sully and there is a battle brewing between Yogi, Milton, and Trudy, who works at the City Building. She wants to let people pay to dig up the islands looking for treasure and Milton feels that it would destroy the community property. When Trudy is found dead, they look at Milton and Leslie feels she needs to get involved to prove his innocence. While all this is happening, her ex-fiancee comes to town and wants to reunite with her. She is uninterested in a reconciliation. 

 

This book was another chosen by my kids to listen to while we were driving to all their meetings. They truly enjoy listening to the books in the car and it leads to some interesting conversations.

The Koala of Death
The Koala of Death - Betty Webb

Book 2 of the Gunn Zoo Mystery

 

Teddy is awoken to the sound of something bumping her houseboat. When she goes out she finds a fellow zookeeper floating dead in the water. When another keeper is accused she feels that she needs to help him and get to the truth...for several reasons. She is being forced to be the tv presence of the zoo, the PR person and the blog writer, and all she wants to do is be a keeper, taking care of her animals. When the murderer starts aiming at her, she really feels the need to find the truth. She wants to return to her home and not live in her mother's place. 

 

This book was requested on the trip and we finished it and my family was laughing at some of the things that happened and were "said." My husband even asked, "How did I find these books?"

Lowcountry Bookshop
Lowcountry Bookshop - Susan M. Boyer

A post office worker is accused of hitting a man in the street, but she proclaims her innocence. Liz and her husband, Nate, are private investigators who are hired by the attorney hired to prove her innocence. Along the way, they discover that a bookshop in Charleston, SC is being used to help women get away from their abusive partners. They are hidden at a club that is very exclusive. 

 

The story was interesting at times and fun at other times, but there were times that I was not thrilled with the story and was grateful that the story was not over 300 pages long.
