MURDER, SHE KNIT by Peggy Ehrhart
Murder, She Knit - Peggy Ehrhart
Cozy mystery where Pamela tries to find where the kitten she's been feeding is hiding but finds a body in her bushes.  She and the victim have a past but so do many others in the town. 
 
I enjoyed this story.  I liked the characters.  I also enjoyed the small-town gossip and mind set.  The knitting group are older women whose children are raised.  They get together weekly to knit.  There is also Roland whose doctor told him to take up knitting as a way to reduce stress.  Not so sure if it has or has only added to the stress in his life.  There is good world building here as this sets up the series. 
 
The story was good but I missed the clues to help solve the mystery.  They hinted at the back of my mind but never came together until the murderer was identified and the story told.  I am looking forward to the next mystery in this series.

HOPE NEVER DIES by Andrew Shaffer
Hope Never Dies - Andrew Shaffer
This parody of cozy mysteries is told from Joe Biden's point-of-view as he and Barack Obama chase down a killer.  I loved it!  I laughed so hard at times.  Suspend belief but you have to read it.  It was so much fun. 
 
I liked the characters.  Watching them solve the crime is a scream.  I liked how they view the current happenings in D.C.  I felt bad when Joe had to change some of his idealistic beliefs about others.  I hope there are more in this series.  I adored it.

A CURIOUS BEGINNING by Deanna Raebourn
A Curious Beginning - Deanna Raybourn
Veronica's last guardian has died and she is alone in the world.  When she returns to her cottage after the funeral she finds a man ransacking it and she is rescued by a baron.  They travel to London where the baron puts her under the protection of Stoker.  The next morning the baron is dead--murdered and the plot thickens.
 
I enjoyed this book.  I loved Veronica and Stoker.  She is a kick-ass broad and Stoker learns early not to get in her way.  Both have pasts and Veronica is always shocking Stoker with hers as she pulls his out of him. 
 
The world building in the story is good.  The mystery is good.  The story is good.  I hope some of the secondary characters remain in the series.  I look forward to book 2.

Deborah Brown - Paradise Series latest mystery is here!!
Blownup in Paradise - Deborah Brown

Deborah Brown - Paradise Series latest mystery is here!!
Set against the backdrop of sun-kissed tropical waters, sexy sleuths Maddison and Fab take you on one highly entertaining adventure!

"The author has added unique characters and situations that are descriptive and unforgettable in each one of the books of this series. I have a vision in my mind of how each character looks. Good or bad, they have all found a way into my heart. Needless to say, I could read this series forever." -Julie Geter Baswell

"This is the story of Madison and Fab who once again find them selves in a bit of a pickle. This story will keep you on your toes with lots of mystery and suspense involved. Great story by Deborah Brown and look forward to the next instalment in the “Paradise” series." - Tfaulcbookreviews

"Everything is being blown up in this one--boats--docks--tempers. Fab is up to her usual tricks--well not as much now that the boyfriends are watching them VERY closely and have decided to accompany them to keep them from getting hurt in this wonderful and zany series" - Miki's Hope

Available on....
Amazon Kindle: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B4ZLDBJ
Paperback: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0998440450
Barnes and Noble: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/blownup-in-paradise-deborah-brown/1128103869

I’ve come a long way since inheriting my Aunt Elizabeth’s Tarpon Cove house and her beach cottages full of quirky residents. I strap a Glock to my thigh as easily as I slip into flip-flops.

Even Fab is going legit… mostly. When she’s hired to investigate some high-end boat thefts in Biscayne Bay, I go along to do what I do best. Chat up the help to get the real story.

Neither of us expected the case to explode—literally—and take out one of Miami’s richest men. And possibly a mistress, though no one’s found her body floating among the bits and pieces.

Somewhere in the Miami upper-crust’s phony smiles and even phonier alibis there’s someone who wanted to see Marshall Sacks dead. Someone willing to ruin Fab’s and my lives to keep their secret. It’ll take calling in every favor I’m owed to keep us out of trouble.

Book Review - Ambushed in Paradise by Deborah Brown
Ambushed in Paradise (Florida Keys Mystery Series Book 12) - Deborah Brown

Here we go again with the crazy gang in the Florida Keys, but this time it is a bitter heart ache for Madison as the love of her life has gone. Faced with the prospect of being alone and not wanting to interfere with her souls mate love life she throws herself into even more wild situations than before. This is to try and avoid the sympathy factor and give her the chance to grieve in her own way.

The usual characters are larger than life and show how much compassion and love they have for Madison in her time of need. The full range of human emotions is felt in this particular story and you just want to reach out and protect Madison. The excellent character traits of those around her are expertly described especially with not knowing what do for the best.

The story is another page turning adventure of fast cars, guns, love and the feeling of loss and the hope of the future. Another fantastic instalment from Deborah Brown and cannot wait for the next escapades in Florida Keys.
