MURDER ON THE SS ROSA by Lee Strauss
Murder on the SS Rosa: a cozy historical mystery - a novella (A Ginger Gold Mystery Book 1) - Lee Strauss

 

  Ginger is sailing to England to settle her late father's estate when the ship's captain is found dead. Time is of the essence when she becomes a suspect in his death. She must solve the murder before the ship docks in England.

I enjoyed this story. It's a good set-up for future books. There is the flavor of the 1920's--elegant and classy but a dark side also. Prohibition does not exist on the high seas. Ginger is always in the way of the inspector who is also traveling on the ship but they do have their moments. I look forward to reading more of this series.

Snow. Santa. Snuggles... Stress.

 

You would think December would be Ivy's ideal time of year. After all, festivities abound and witches everywhere are encouraged to put their feet up and relax. That's not quite the case when she has various Order members attempting to finagle her into Christmas activities and a special artefact from the top of the Christmas tree goes missing. Either someone is attempting to sabotage Winter or something very strange is afoot indeed.

 

This is a short holiday novella.

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Magic is a humors and enjoyable series to read.

 

Sparkle Witch is a novella set around Christmas time. It’s hilariously snarky and full of shenanigans featuring Ivy, Winter, the Order and Brutus.

 

This was a fun romp with minimum danger, but supreme fun. It’s got all the magical feel of Christmas time with all the priceless amusing moments with our lazy witch, Ivy.

 

You do need to read the rest of the series; before picking this one up.

 

Now, I’m not sure if we are going to get more Lazy Girl’s Guide to Magic,but if not this is a nice place to stop.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

If anyone appreciates what it means to be dead to the world, it's Ivy Wilde.

 

Barely recovered from her brush with necromancy, Ivy is flung once more into a world of intrigue, adventure and potential death and disaster. It's not her fault - it just so turns out that she's now the only person in the entire world who can communicate with the dead. And they're a chatty bunch with a list of demands.

 

When the ghosts offer information about a witch-hating mass murderer in return for Ivy's help, she has no choice but to get involved. She might be getting herself into more trouble than she realises though - and that's even before she's dragged to Sunday dinner so she can meet Winter's family...

 

This is the third book in The Lazy Girl's Guide To Magic series.

Spirit Witch is book three in The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Magic by Helen Harper. I recommend reading the series in order. 

 

I fell for this series the moment I opened book one and each book after has been another fun adventure to enjoy.

 

Shenanigans ensue with our favorite lazy witch, but now she’s different in that she can see ghosts. Not that she wants to; because said ghosts want her to do things for them; especially a dead former head of the Order of Magic Enlightenment who demands she stop a killer targeting witches.

 

Ivy, despite wanting a quiet life and to stay away from the order and just cost throw life ends up back in the thick of things. Besides trying to stop a killer with her lover/boyfriend, Rafe Winter, she’s going to meet the parents too. Oh my! 

 

The banter is fun and I like the romance of opposites attract. I’m happy to see the romance as a side story and not the focal point in this cozy mystery. The adventure and mystery as to who the killer is was enjoyable. 

 

I had a great time with Ivy, the ghosts we meet along the way, and how things turned out. 

 

Sprit Witch was a wonderful fun read in this series. If your looking for a fun cozy mystery series then I recommend giving this series a try. 

 

Rated: 3.5 Stars

CHILI TO DIE FOR by Lilly York
Chili to Die For (A Willow Crier Cozy Mystery Book 1) (Willow Crier Cozy Mysteries) - Lilly York
Willow competes in a chili competition and one of the judges drops dead into her bowl of chili.  Now Willow is determined to find the killer since everyone is looking at her as the murderer.
 
I enjoyed this tale.  I liked the characters especially Willow and her daughter Emery as well as the Chief of Police.  The world building is good.  The mystery is believable but I am surprised that the chief allowed Willow to investigate along with him.  That's where my disbelief kicked in.  But this is good escapist relief from the COVID-19 news.  I look forward to the rest of the series.
