Murdered by Words: Midwest Cozy Mystery Series by Dianne Harman
Murdered by Words: Midwest Cozy Mystery Series - Dianne Harman

Murdered by Words: Midwest Cozy Mystery Series by Dianne Harman is a fast reading cozy mystery. This is a change of pace for this author.

Kat Denham secretly writes as Sexy Cissy. She has a series of books called Lusty Women. I really enjoyed the story line & characters. I also enjoyed the recipes included.

There were a few typos that sneaked in. That's uncommon for this author. I gave it five stars because I read it in one sitting & I found it entertaining.

Carl Jennings the husband of Nancy, Kat's editor is introducing her at a country club function: "'It's good to have her back.'"

Kat couldn't believe the man smiling at her & saying those kind words was the same man who just a few minutes earlier had threatened to expose her if she didn't find a new editor.

She'd met Carl & occasionally seen him after she & Nancy became friends, but tonight she was seeing a side of him she'd never seen before."

I look forward to the continuation of this new series.

Marriage and Murder (Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series Book 4) by Dianne Harman
Marriage and Murder (Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series Book 4) - Dianne Harman

Marriage and Murder (Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series Book 4) by Dianne Harman is a charming, fun & fast cozy mystery to read.  I gave it five stars.  I enjoy the ongoing development of the relationship between Kelly, the owner of Kelly's Coffee Shop & Sheriff Mike. 

 

There are multiple suspects for the murder of Jesse, the owner of the local wine shop.  His sudden death cuts their honeymoon short.

 

When Mike & Kelly found Jesse's body, her reaction was intense.  "Kelly's legs started to buckle under her, & she felt faint.  She knelt on the floor & began to sob uncontrollably, tears running down her cheeks."

 

I received a complimentary kindle copy from Amazon.  This did not change my opinion for this review.

Wonderful cozy main character
Blanche on the Lam: A Blanche White Mystery - Barbara Neely

 

This extremely well-written cozy features Blanche, an African-American housekeeper, and how she becomes ensnared in the shenanigans of her ne'er do well employees. I absolutely love the down to earth wisdom of Blanche; she is not a saint but a thoroughly fleshed out character. I will definitely be reading more in this series.

Behind the Walls (Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery Series) - Elaine Orr

Jolie moves into a new home, discovers some jewellery hidden behind a wall.  From then on all sorts of things start to happen.  This was a nice, easy read and would be perfect to take on holiday.

No Place Like Home - Anne R. Allen

Madcap comedies virtually by definition are based on implausible and improbable scenarios. This novel goes well beyond implausible.

 


*Spoiler Alert*

Every multi-millionaire who ever had a drink with Doria's husband turn over 90% of their money to this Madoff type character. Doria, a successful business woman of 60, has been married to her 6th husband for just 3 years but has apparently turned over all financial decisions to him. Naturally everyone is broke and angry.

 

It is too far fetched to believe these people never used a professional. There is no dirth of lawyers and accountants in CA. Doria is TSTL and Camilla relies on money falling from the sky to solve her problems. On the plus side, there were only 5 grammar and typo errors in the book and the writing isn't atrocious.
