Another Round of Whiskey: A Wanted Novella
Another Round of Whiskey: A Wanted Novella - S. Moose Ashley and Landon are intense. Their loved burned brighter than a firework, but fizzled just as rapidly. Or did it? Another Round of Whiskey tells of a love that borders on obsession. Landon is the home town hero who lost his heart to the small town girl who had big city dreams. Seven years on and what seems like a lifetime ago, the girl with big dreams reemerges with a ton of baggage following closely at her heels and a never extinguished flame in her heart. Is it too late for these strangers in the night to find their way home? S. Moose does it all. She tempts with romance, hints at intrigue all while grabbing hold of your heart. My first read by this author is shaping up to be a tough act to follow.

October was a crazy month here at the Horror Corner! 

 

The most important, (and beautiful thing), was that my lovely niece married her best friend of 20+ years. The ceremony was wonderful and the reception a lot of fun!

 

 

 

Then, two weeks after that was the Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival!

You can find my post about that HERE.

 

Here's a photo of myself with Rio Youers. Isn't he the cutest? He's also extremely gracious and very funny. 

 

All of this is why I only read 10 books this month!

Murder Go Round (Witch City Mystery, #4)
Murder Go Round - Carol J. Perry

I feel like this one was longer than it needed to be, and about 2/3 of the way through I was losing patience because I could clearly see where the story was going and the clues were so clearly telegraphed that it was driving me crazy that Lee and her Aunt were being so obtuse.

 

And then I turned out I was wrong about nearly all of it.  Right direction, wrong track completely.  So game, set and match to Perry.  I still maintain it could have been tighter and shorter though.

 

In general the series and this book are good solid cozies:  great setting, likeable characters with realistic expectations (no 'police are dumb' here) and so far, pretty well crafted mysteries.  Maybe a tad too long, but I'm on board for the next one.
