Reading progress update: I've read 20%.
By the Pricking of My Thumbs (Tommy & Tuppence Mysteries) - Agatha Christie

‘Look here, Tuppence—I know I’ve been rather preoccupied—It’s all this I.U.A.S.—It’s only once a year, thank goodness.’

‘It starts on Monday, doesn’t it? For five days—’

‘Four days.’

‘And you all go down to a Hush Hush, top secret house in the country somewhere, and make speeches and read Papers and vet young men for Super Secret assignments in Europe and beyond. I’ve forgotten what I.U.A.S. stands for. All these initials they have nowadays—’

‘International Union of Associated Security.’

‘What a mouthful! Quite ridiculous. And I expect the whole place is bugged, and everybody knows everybody else’s most secret conversations.’

‘Highly likely,’ said Tommy with a grin.

‘And I suppose you enjoy it?’

‘Well, I do in a way. One sees a lot of old friends.’

‘All quite ga-ga by now, I expect. Does any of it do any good?’

 

Gotta love Tuppence for seeing through this at once.

Bikinis in Paradise
Bikinis in Paradise (Tj Jensen Paradise Lake Mystery) (Volume 3) - Kathi Daley

TJ has stayed at the ranch to help run the Bikini Competition while her dad, his friend Rosalie and the girls are in FL at a convention, where her dad is the speaker. When the program is beginning, two women from the program have gone missing. A contestant and a woman from the company sponsoring the competition. TJ feels that she has to go find them, but when the organizer is found dead and weighted down in the lake, she feels even more that she has to find the other woman. Dylan also is pulling away from her, because his sister and nephew are coming to town and he wants to convince them to move there, but he also wants to make sure that nothing happens to scare his sister. 

This was an earlier book as the girls are new to her and they are all still trying to create relationships.

MY REVIEW

 

Lauren Carr is one of my go to authors when I want a mystery that’s just right. Not too cozy and not too dark, but filled with suspense, humor and a critter or two or three…
 

I love being back with familiar friends and the pets who love them. Lauren Carr;s characters, both human and canine, are rich in personality and she gets right to the action. the hook is set early and I love that, even though I know when I open the cover I am in for hours of entertainment, laughter, danger and worry.

 

Right off the bat I greet Newman. He’s a Basset mix and a couch potato, who pouts when he doesn’t like what’s on TV and doesn’t have the remote to change it. Sometimes it’s the stock report and sometimes it could be a movie, like Jurassic Park or zombies. He has good taste.

 

“You have a couch potato who pranks people by playing possum and another who’s a compulsive liar..”

 

A great description for the critters in this household. Gotta love ’em!

 

Jessica and Murphy are still in the honeymoon phase of their marriage, but, like a lot of us, they are busy with the necessities of life and don’t have enough time to spend together. Adds that bit of realism that makes the story read like true crime.

 

Technology plays a big part in this series and I would love to have a butler like Nigel and all the toys that are available to them.

 

We have secrets, murders, Phantoms, and more…

 

In fact, we have multiple murders and a long list of suspects. But don’t worry, we still have plenty of time for some laughter and lovin’.

 

Thanks Lauren, for another chance to get lost in a twist and turn mystery that leads me down one path, only to find I took a wrong turn somewhere. Keep ’em coming.

Til Death Do Us Party
Til Death Do Us Party - Vickie Fee

Hilarious! From the warm characters to the fun plots, this series always brings an enjoyable read. This one has the gang in Las Vegas for Mama's Elvis themed wedding as she prepares to wed her hunka hunka burnin' love, Earl but everyone is All Shook Up when the Elvis impersonator minister drops dead in the middle of the ceremony. The puzzling plot and many laugh out loud moments (like the Bachelorette party!) made this a very entertaining read. And poor Hard Headed Di, I really felt for her wanting to believe the best in that Hound Dog, but I couldn't understand why Liv kind of left her hanging, there were several times in the book where she just let things drop with Di. Don't be cruel, Liv! I'm not sure how Liv came up with the motive, which was kind of out in left field, but it made for a great surprise twist ending and the sweet wedding and welcome home party were heartwarming and left me with a smile on my face. (and I'm out of Elvis song titles to add!)

A Willa Pennington Mystery - a one and done for me
What Doesn't Kill You (A Willa Pennington, PI Mystery) - Aimee Hix

I'm always on the lookout for a good mystery or thriller and the blurb for this one sounded quite promising. Unfortunately, the reality didn't quite live up to that promise. The story starts out mysterious enough with our main character finding a dead body, but it quickly becomes more about Willa and Seth's relationship than anything else. I like romance and may have been okay with that part had I cared enough about these characters to want to see them together. Willa turned me off from the beginning when she views finding the body as more inconvenience than anything else and seemed to only use the I'm sorry, this is my first time finding a dead body and I'm upset reasoning when it suited her. I can appreciate sarcasm and even gallows humor. In fact, I often like it in a story, but it just didn't work here. Willa comes off more crass and uncaring than anything else. I also realize that this is fiction and a certain amount of leeway can be given, but the idea that an ex-police officer would be allowed to walk through a crime scene and be that involved in an active investigation was a bit much for me. We do get a decent bit of action toward the end, but it just wasn't enough to save this one for me. The author does show some potential, but in the end, this character and story just wasn't for me and I don't think I'll explore the series further.
