Second Fiddle: Or How to Tell a Blackbird from a Sausage
Second Fiddle: Or How to Tell a Blackbird from a Sausage - Siobhán Parkinson The main characters of this book, Mags and Gillian were both very quirky and odd. There were times when I found them frustrating, but they were more likeable than unlikeable. The narration of the book was mostly from Mags with Gillian interjection occasionally. In Mags, the author captured the voice of a twelve-year-old. Sure, the run-on sentences got annoying, but it felt the way a twelve-year-old would really write. Overall it was a good book.

Nero's Fiddle - A.W. Exley

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

 

Spontaneous human combustion is so rare it’s not even considered as an option even when a person has obviously burned to death. Until Inspector Fraser is called in on one that fits the profile where the body has burned to ash and yet the surroundings have not. However, one death, two deaths, three deaths, oh, boy…this is stretching the bounds of believability by quite a bit.

 

Cara and Nate are settling into married life and the Queen’s new position for them as Artifact Hunters quite nicely. And then Inspector Fraser comes along asking for Cara’s help in solving these strange deaths, deaths he believes are murders. Fraser and Nate’s hatred for each other will not stop Cara from finding Nero’s Fiddle which she believes is the instrument of the deaths. Follow the fiddle, find the killer, hopefully before there’s a victim #4.

 

Oh, sweet, sweet steampunk! I love this series! Murder, mystery, intrigue, humor, romance, steaminess (without being graphic), mythology, fantasy and spine tingling creepiness, I love it all. This story picks up not long after Hatshepsut’s Collar and the layers keep on building. Told from several POVs, I learned more about Fraser and his reason for hating Nate and when Cara visits with Nan I learned more about her mom & dad. Then Nan gets her own POV and I learned a lot about her and Nessy’s younger life and got to meet Cara’s grandfather, Gideon. The mystery surrounding the murders is sufficiently twisty to have kept me guessing and that ending? Wowzers. Secrets are tricksy things. Oh, must not forget the Curator. Holy shit! That guy is totally creeptastic, so, of course, I can’t wait to see more of him in the next book. And Cara gets a new bodyguard, Brick, who is quite the character and a new friend, Skittles, the famous courtesan. Jackson, Amy and Loki don’t get a lot of page time, but what they get is memorable and there are appearances by Helene and Malachi, the bookseller.

 

I am totally looking forward to Moseh’s Staff though the blurb fills me with dread. *shudders*

#BookadayUK - Day 13: Best Title for A Novel
A Tisket, A Tasket, A Fancy Stolen Casket - Fran Rizer
Hey Diddle Diddle, the Corpse and the Fiddle (Callie Parrish Mysteries, No. 2) - Fran Rizer
Casket Case - Fran Rizer

My sister introduced me to this fun mystery series and I always reread it when I'm missing the south. While set a bit too south of where I remember, there are few series I've enjoyed more. The MC is a cosmologist who's found her calling working at a funeral home preparing the deceased for one last goodbye with their family. Named Calamine as it was the only pink thing her father could think of (everyone but her father calls her Callie), she's a strong woman who seems to fall into the craziest situations and begins to solve mysteries that seem to all but fall into her lap. There are two new books in the series that I have but haven't read yet...cuz I'm about due for another re-read of this fun series!
