Dogs and Danger
Dogs and Danger - Diana Xarissa

You know the saying "Truth is stranger than fiction" right? Well in this book, fiction was stranger than fiction! I have to say, this is definitely a unique plot and I enjoyed it for the most part (since when do pets need to be fed or walked every 3 hours?) and I can honestly say I didn't guess the ending.

Cars and Cold Cases
Cars and Cold Cases - Diana Xarissa

This is a great series to curl up with for an evening; quick, light reads that are very cozy indeed. I enjoyed the plot, two decades-old cold cases involving a missing woman and a man found dead and I liked how Mona's extensive knowledge of the major players in the mystery came into play, with the juicy soap opera lives of the rich making for an enjoyable mystery. I have to say, Fenella's overwrought hysterics about her driving lessons were a bit overdone. The way she was going on about it, you'd think she'd never driven anywhere, let alone on a tiny island. Get a grip, woman!

Encounters and Enemies
Encounters and Enemies - Diana Xarissa

I liked this one, an intriguing and puzzling mystery wrapped up in only a few hundred pages made for a quick and enjoyable read. Without Daniel to back her up, Fenella has to contend with a different police inspector and struggles to make him see that the accidents he's investigating could actually be murder. Ghostly Aunt Mona's extensive knowledge of all the major players is invaluable and Fenella is able to ferret out the truth. An excellent addition to the Ghostly Isle of Man series, I think this is my favorite so far.

The Kingston Case
The Kingston Case - Diana Xarissa

I really liked this one, who's threatening William Chalmers and why? The why turned out to be something I wouldn't have expected, and I liked how Janet stumbled upon the truth. William Chalmers ex-wife showing up gave the character a little more depth and I'm liking him more and more. More so than Edward, anyway. Very enjoyable and quick cozy to curl up with for an evening, and a wonderful murder-free series.

The Jackson Case
The Jackson Case - Diana Xarissa

This was a fun one, and there's a sort-of continuation in a later Aunt Bessie book (Aunt Bessie Observes.) Janet and Joan help out neighbor Stuart with a charity fundraiser, only to learn that the proceeds were stolen by 2 event organizers. The police think there's was a local who assisted in return for a slice of the profits, but who? It was enjoyable to watch the sisters unravel who the culprit was and I liked that Janet got at least some information on the mysterious Alberta Montgomery. There was a dropped plot thread with Edward that never came up again and left me wondering why it was in there at all. But overall, I really enjoyed this novella length mystery.
