Killer Librarian / Mary Lou Kirwin
Killer Librarian (Thorndike Press Large Print Mystery Series) - Mary Lou Kirwin

Champion of the mystery section at a small-town Minnesota library, Karen Nash is about to embark on a dream trip to London, a literary tour inspired by every murderous intrigue, wily suspect, and ingenious crime found in the pages of the British mysteries that she devours. But she's clueless why the love of her mid-life, Dave, would dump her hours before takeoff, until she spies him at the airport with a young honey on his arm! She decides the best revenge (for now) is to get on that plane anyway . . . and entertain schemes for Dave's untimely demise while crossing the pond.
After touching ground in the hallowed homeland of Christie, Sayers, and Peters, she checks into a cozy B & B run by charming bibliophile Caldwell Perkins. Soon she's spilling tears in her pint at the corner pub, sharing her heartbreak saga with a stranger. That night, a B & B guest drops out of circulation permanently. And when Dave and his cutie turn up in London, Karen realizes they are an assassin's target. With the meticulous attention to detail that makes her a killer librarian, Karen sleuths her way through her own real-life mystery in which library science meets the art of murder.

 

I read this book for the Cozy Mystery square of my 2018 Halloween Bingo card.

I’m not usually a tremendous fan of the cozy mystery genre—I tend to like things a bit darker and more threatening--but I was charmed by this librarian-reluctantly-turned-sleuth tale that also incorporated a gentle romance.

Karen Nash is a successful librarian who has always dreamed of visiting England, the land of all of her favourite authors. She has carefully planned her upcoming vacation, trying to indulge her passion for literature while not boring her plumber boyfriend Dave. But the course of true love never did run smooth and Dave dumps Karen just days before they are to embark on this adventure. What’s a girl to do? Karen buys her own plane ticket and goes anyway, finding at the airport that Dave has replaced her with a younger woman. Understandably angry, Karen conceals herself as best she can on the flight, then follows the couple upon landing in London.

Who hasn’t been dumped and fantasized about taking revenge on the former object of our affection? Karen books into her B&B and is pleased to find that the owner loves books as much as she does. When she goes looking for some juice in the middle of her first night, she stumbles over the body of a fellow customer, complicating her situation.

The remainder of the book deals with meeting the other denizens of the B&B, being touristy in London, causing trouble for the disloyal Dave, pursuing the new man in her life, plus solving the murder mystery. A very full schedule. Karen is a woman after my own heart, a planner, a reader, and a very competent woman.

Perfect if you want a warm, fuzzy reading experience with a very gentle mystery attached to it. Truly, the story is much more about Karen and how she sorts out her life after it’s been shaken up. Very enjoyable.

Some bark throughout the day

 

How Many Times Have You Moved in Recent Times? Each time you move, a pet may need time to adjust. If you’re thinking about rescuing a dog, try to commit to giving the recuperating animal a long stayin one place. This is especially true for those who own mammals. Therefore, even if you move during a period of involvement, it shouldn’t interrupt the good you’re trying to do. Here are a few factors you can consider to help you decide if you’re a better candidate to bring an animal into your home or help with a community program.

Some bark throughout the day, annoying nearby neighbors. All of these potential problems should be taken into consideration when deciding between animal volunteer programs and bringing home your own pet. Homebodies make great pet owners, as they prefer to be by their pooch’s side than anywhere else. That is a long time for any dog to have to wait to relive itself. It isn’t hard for a pet to tag along for such activities. After weighing the above factors, where do you fit in? For many who are childless, joining a nonprofit organization is a great match.Another issue with canines is that they sometimes feel separation anxiety when no one’s around. If you are evaluating the potential of applying to participate in animal volunteer programs versus adopting a pet, you’re not alone.Animals are incredibly interesting creatures. Those who work from home or already have a family may be better suited to bring a furry Insect killer Manufacturers friend into the household. Many people face this decision, and it’s an important one. Entertainers could make excellent pet owners though, as people who regularly invite others to their homes may be able to allow their dog or cat to roam freely among visiting guests. Socialites may spend a good portion of their nights and weekends outside of their homes, so they are usually a better fits for participating in community programs.

Are You a Homebodyor a Socialite? This is another point that should factor into your decision. Do You Have Live-in Help? Everybody with a pet at home should have a backup person who is able to help, if possible.org. Hiring a dog walker could be a solution, but not everyone is able to keep up with the cost. Usually people who move every one or two years aren’t good candidates for bringing in a foster pet. If you have a spouse, roommate or relative who shares your space with you, you may be able to adopt a dog and still support a community program. That being said, such persons can be excellent candidates for participating in animal volunteer programs. If you work full-time outside of the home, you could be gone for 10 or more hours out of the day. For more information just visit on foundanimals. Stay-at-home parents are great candidates for animal adoption, as they tend to be either home with the kids or out playing as a family. For that matter, outdoor exercise buffs may also be excellent animal caregivers, as they can take their dog for a walk or run as often as every day.

MY REVIEW

 

After I got over the brutal murder, I couldn’t help but laugh at Paul as he faces his day. He is definitely not a morning person and I can relate. Neither am I. I like that he wears sneakers with his suits. Makes sense to me. I laugh along with his police partners as they poke fun at him, like only true friends can do.

 

Nicole is just hanging out with her best friend, while the power is out due to a snowstorm, when her gift comes to light.

 

HE is pure evil. How does he choose his victims? I’ll leave that up to you to find out, but it is not what your run of the mill serial killer would he. He is brutal, savage. He is a real sicko.

 

Nicole’s ability is developing and she has no idea how intense it will get. She can feel the victim’s pain, live through their death. .I know she will get involved in the investigation and now I know how and why.

 

When Paul and Nicole meet, something zaps between them. Big surprise, right? (said sarcastically) I don’t mind knowing some of the story beforehand,, just as long as the author throws in a surprise or two. I love the scene where Nicole is getting dressed for their date. Simone is helping her and she does need the help. I love her BFF.

 

It’s easy to see how Carl, the reporter becomes involved. Investigating is not a nine to five, sit at your desk job. He goes out in the field. He wants to be a REAL reporter. He even dresses the part in a thrift store suit that makes me think of the film noir PI’s.

 

I love the dark, black as night thrillers and this qualifies. The murders are gruesome, grisly, overkill, mutilations beyond your imagination. Then…comes the autopsy description that takes it to another level of upchucking ugliness. The more grossness Perry Prete feeds me, the hungrier I get. BUT, I do like fun and smiles with my murder mysteries and he does supply that too, along with dialogue and easy banter between the characters.

 

Oh man, the hospital scene. Caught me by surprise, but Nicole is not afraid and I love it. NOW IT’S INTENSE…my thoughts run riot, I want to scream and yell, my heart beats a little faster, my eyes devour the words faster, the pace of the novel picks up, the suspense mounting.

 

The ending…..FANTASTIC.

Hunting Fear
Hunting Fear (Fear trilogy #1 - BCU #7) - Kay Hooper

 

 

 

 

This was my head start read. I was so excited that I finished it before the week even ended. I read it for the Murder Most Foul square.

 

This is an exciting crime thriller with detectives that have psychic abilities. The plot had some unexpected twists and left the killer's identity hidden until near the end of the book. The methods of killing are particularly gruesome and frightening, including a timed guillotine, drowning in a tank that fills slowly and being buried alive.

 

This is the first in a series of books with the Special Crimes Unit (a special group within the FBI of detectives with psychic abilities). It seems like each book follows a different special agent.
