Review: Switiching Hour (Magic and Mayhem #1) by Robyn Peterman
Switching Hour: Magic and Mayhem Book One - Robyn Peterman

 

This was lackluster and the author tried way too hard with the humor, almost as if the author wrote this for the middle grade reader. And it suffered mightily from first bookitis, so there was so much back story and not enough of a coherent present storyline. Since the story itself was only 91 pages and there was a alpha werewolf as the hero, we get insta-lust/fated mates romance on top of the paranormal mystery. There wasn't anything too bad about the story, it just didn't have anything that interested me as a reader.

I'm going short and sweet on this one...
Murder and Mayhem - Rhys Ford,Greg Tremblay

While this is definitely one of the best audio books I've heard in a while. Greg Tremblay was the narrator and as always he did a superlative job with this one and yes, I could probably babble on more about how awesome the narration was but if you've ever listened to any of his audio books than chances are you know exactly of what I speak and if you haven't all I can say is 'seriously? you need to go to audible and listen to some samples...maybe, 'Murder and Mayhem' by Rhys Ford it's on there...I'mma just sayin'  ;)

 

Now as for the story. I've had this one on my TBR list since forever...ok, since August of 2015. It's Rhys Ford, she's an auto buy for me and my only problem here was 'what the hell was I thinking waiting so long to get to this book. Insanity, I tell you. It was pure and utter insanity on my part.'

 

Rook Stevens is a retired Catburgler. Dante Montoya is the cop who wants to finish the job his former partner started and put him behind bars, so they've got history together both professional and personal...sorta'...kinda'...almost?

 

I loved this one the story was fast paced, the interaction between Montaya and Rook was filled with humor and snark. Add to that the fact that these two are seriously sexy as hell together and you've got a hit and I'm hooked.

 

Like I said my only issue is that I was foolish enough to wait this long before reading or listening as the case may be to this story...but better late than never because book #2 is on it's way and I'm more than ready for it.

Hay-on-Wye

... minus the book festival, but anyway.  Book town writ large.

 

So there I was, nicely pacing myself (read: trying hard at least not to enter every single book store I was passing) --

 


 

 

... but then this happened, and my self-control was toast:

I left the store with, among other things, the better part of Michael Jecks's Knights Templar series (to the extent I haven't already read it, that is, obviously) and a few other books in addition.

 

"Chalky," the murder victim chalk outline figure lying so conveniently at the bottom of the True Crime section, was taken about town by a local artist, incidentally (I'd have paid anything for postcards of these images, but there weren't any, so I had to content myself with taking photos of photos):

 

Oh, and just in case you're wondering, like pretty much every self-respecting town in the Welsh borderland Hay-on-Wye does have a castle, too, and true to form it did get razed (or nearly, anyway) a couple of times in the various Welsh-English wars and in the English Civil War ... but who needs a castle when you have book stores?!  (It's intended to be made another book-related fixture of the town, though, so that should be interesting.)

 

Last but not least and for the sake of visual context: This is what you drive through on your way to booktown central.

Review: Mayhem in High Heels (High Heels #5) by Gemma Halliday
Mayhem in High Heels - Gemma Halliday

I hate books centered around weddings; I much prefer to read a quick run down in the epilogue than to read about dress fittings, cake tasting, and all the unnecessary crap that goes into a modern American wedding. As you can tell, hubby and I went the courthouse route (married in less than 15 hours from the proposal). I thought that since the MC of the series, Maddie, was such a fashionista that the author would turn her into a Bride-zilla. On the contrary, it seems Maddie was the only one sane throughout the wedding planning. And that is why I continue to read this series - Maddie is someone I could be friends with IRL.

 

So the victim is Maddie's wedding planner. There is a list of suspects and the trio of Maddie and her BFFs Marco and Dana are on the case; the sooner the killer is caught the sooner groom to be Det. Ramirez can re-focus on the wedding, which is just a little over a week away. I LOVED the bet Ramirez made with Maddie; seems Maddie is learning to stand up for herself much more than in previous books. I also really enjoyed the wedding when it took place because that wedding (unlike the planned wedding) was much more Maddie and Jack's style. It was just hard to slog through endless wedding details and Maddie's mother was quite the Mother-of-the-bride gone crazy. I don't generally like Maddie's mother or Mrs. Rosenblatt, but I don't dislike them until this book.

Witty and fun
Dear Neighbor - River Laurent,Mayhem Cov... Dear Neighbor - River Laurent,Mayhem Cover Creations,Teresa Banschbach

Witty, fun, and hot! Max and Mimi are great together and their banter kept me in stitches. There was a twist toward the end that I totally saw coming and another that completely caught me by surprise, but twist or no twist, the whole dang story was great. The hilarious dialogue combined with the fan yourself hotness make this one a winner.
