Final Vow, Amanda Flower
The Final Vow (A Living History Museum M... The Final Vow (A Living History Museum Mystery) - Amanda Flower

I really enjoyed this who done it with a little bit of romance. I received this book for free and voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 5* rating. This was clean with just a little bit of violence. This pulled me in with the harassed heroine and the wana be hero. There was just so much going on that I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. There was a couple of mysteries solved in this also. Nothing like a murder to bring out the secrets. Look forward to more of this author's work.

The Final Vow (A Living History Museum M... The Final Vow (A Living History Museum Mystery) - Amanda Flower

Krissie dreamed about being a June bride and Krissie got what she wanted. Kelsey had met Krissie one year ago. Kelsey had a notebook that deleted all the things she needed to do in every aspect of her life from running the Barton Farm - a living history museum to raising her six year old son Hayden. Kelsey had learned in the last three months planning Krissie’s wedding that it was always better to collect herself before she responded. Benji was Kelsey’s assistant and he told Krissie all would be fine at her wedding and there would be Civil War reenactors and even Abe Lincoln. Kelsey was surprised when Benji said that  Kelsey could meet him tomorrow.  Krissie was marrying Kelsey’s ex husband. Other than raising her son, saving Barton Farm and all that it could teach people about the past Kelsey’s life mission. Laura’s theory was Krissy stole Kelsey’s ex husband Eddie now she was after Kelsey’s life work. Eddie had  an affair with a married woman when he was with Kelsey. Kelsey’s best friend and farm employee within  was Laura. Laura was always dramatic. Eddie had hired Krissie as a physical therapist at his P T practice and then they started dating. Krissie was eight years younger than Eddie  and as far as Kelsey was concerned Krissie could have Eddie. Kelsey tries to figure people out. There had been murders on the farm grounds and Kelsey almost lost the farm and her son over them. Kelsey’s boyfriend was Chase . Kelsey’s mom died when she was a teen. Kelsey was the director of the farm and had been for the last four years. Someone had signed a directive to the gardener and signed Kelsey’s name and she wasn’t happy about it.

I just couldn’t connect with this story.It did also drag for me. It also didn’t really hold my attention, I am sure others will love this. This story just wasn’t for me.

Front Page Affair by Radha Vatsal
A Front Page Affair (Kitty Weeks Mystery) - Radha Vatsal

OUT OF THE GATE LIKE A STUTZ BEARCAT

 

Radha Vatsal is a scholar and a talented storyteller, evident in her strong historical mystery debut,A Front Page Affair, just released this summer.

 

Capability Weeks (“Kitty” to her friends) and her father (a well-to-do, self-made mogul) live well in 1915 New York City. Kitty, a young addition to the New York Sentinel’s Ladies Page, covers a July 4th society soiree and becomes unintentionally tied to a murder and what looks like a plot to endanger the delicate international balance.

#24 in 48 wrap up
The Coming of the Third Reich - Richard J. Evans
The Trouble with Women - Jacky Fleming
The Mystery of the Mary Celeste: The History of the American Merchant Vessel and the Disappearance of Its Crew - Charles River Editors
Weird Scotland: Monsters, Mysteries, and Magic Across the Scottish Nation - Charles River Editors
Hoofprints: Horse Poems - Jessie Haas

So I finished the Evans as well as the Netgalley graphic novel, Hoofprints, and two short books.  I also made my way though most of Gentlemen and Players.  Additionally, I read the NYT pretty cover to cover or page to page.

 

That was fun.
