Reading progress update: I've read 15%.
Three Maids for a Crown: A Novel of the Grey Sisters - Ella March Chase

I'm giving this book another chapter before I decide whether or not to keep reading. This author clearly subscribes to the theory that the Duke and Duchess of Suffolk were horrid people who didn't love any of their children. That much was made obvious three sentences in. No need to continue to beat the reader over the head with it.

Fabulous Read!!
The First Kiss of Spring: An Eternity Sp... The First Kiss of Spring: An Eternity Springs Novel - Emily March

Wow!  The First Kiss Of Spring is a fantastic read by Emily March.  Ms. March has given us a well-written book.  The characters in this book are outstanding and for me, the best part of the book.  Caitlin has decided to quit her job and move back to her hometown but first, she has to get through her friend's wedding weekend.  Josh meets Caitlin while he is on vacation and she is waiting for her friend, the bride, to arrive.  Caitlin and Josh's story is a see-saw of ups and downs.  There's plenty of drama, humor, sizzle and bit of suspense to hold the reader's attention.  I enjoyed every page of The First Kiss Of Spring, it's one of those stories you can't wait to get to the end to see what happens, but then want more when you do reach the end.  I look forward to reading more from Emily March in the future.  The First Kiss Of Spring is book 14 of the Eternity Springs Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. 

 

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

March of Crime
March of Crime (The Murder-By-Month Mysteries) - Jess Lourey

"Gary," she said on her way out, "I got my nails done. What do you think?" He looked. She held up both her middle fingers. His nostrils flared. I tugged Mrs. Berns outside before he did anything more

 

If I could give this book a standing ovation, I would. I had a serious book hangover after I finished this one; actually, I finished the last page and went "Auuugghhhaaahhhhh!!!!" Thrilling, hilarious and entertaining, it was a great comeback for Mira and the Battle Lake gang. I love Mira, she's smart and tough on the outside but so vulnerable and insecure on the inside (and dang it, girl you make some rotten decisions!) Mrs. Berns is always laugh out loud funny and like Mira, I want to be her when I grow up. The plot was fantastically creepy (dolls are creepy enough, but when you stuff corpses in them? *shudder*) and I never saw the end coming. Add in Kennie's hairbrained money making schemes (which had me rolling with laughter!) and Chief Wohnt (gaaahhhh!!) and you've got a blockbuster book.

 

An excellent read and  I definitely recommend this series for cozy mystery fans. I can't wait for the next book (please Lord, let it be soon!)
