What a great week for these new releases on Tuesday!
Love the series!
And that one mistake was a doozy!
I own all of these. Love!
A bit odd, but check it out.
So many good books releasing this month! I am so happy that the word Girl isn’t in as many this year! I have had quite enough of the same old thing. I hope you give these a read and share your thoughts!
This is Book 10 in the Haunted Guesthouse Mystery Series
Alison is running the guesthouse having made it clear she is no longer assisting Paul Harrison, in any more murder investigations. Paul is her resident ghost detective.
But when a simple excavation in her backyard to help shore up the beach uncovers an old Lincoln Continental with a dead passenger.
Alison’s backyard may be off-limits but she is still hosting guests and trying to repair the bullet damage done to her beam in the kitchen when the crew finds a treasure. Now her kitchen is a crime scene. Things are quickly getting out of hand and it doesn’t help that now Maxie wants to redecorate the room.
Even Josh is getting in on the investigating having learned how to text to speak to Paul.
It doesn’t take long for Alison to put her detective hat back on. But this one may be too much for her, even with her resident ghosts.
These ghosts make the series. They are always evolving and now Maxie is determined to start designing again. And a ghost puppy? Who could resist this colorful and funny group of characters. All living together under one roof. You can read it alone but I warn you you’ll go back and read the rest. I am very fond of the way the writer tells the story. It’s not traditional, more conversational. Very nice.

This is the seventh in the County Cork Mystery Series
Pub owner Maura Donovan is settling into a charmed life in Ireland—until a mutilated body on her property ends her lucky streak.
Maura has been in County Cork for a year now, running Sullivan’s Pub and adjusting well to life in Ireland after moving from Boston.
One busy afternoon she is sitting on a low wall behind the pub and discovers a body. No one seems to know who he is or why he was dumped behind the pub.
Maura seems prone to whining about problems rather than solving them, which I found annoying. Her pub seems to be empty most of the time and yet she is usually not even there, but out thinking about her problems of staff, putting in a kitchen and keeping the pub in the black. I just found her to be a bit flaky to tell the truth.
I really did like that the author used common Irish speak. I loved the travellers but there just wasn’t enough about them and the ending was a bit disappointing.

A Caprice De Luca Home Staging Mystery
Grant’s annulment is finally done. With just a few weeks until they are man and wife, Caprice De Luca is up to her ears in wedding plans. The reception to be held at Rambling Vines Winery, which she decorated a couple of years ago.
When rumors start circulating about money woes at the winery, things get a little tense. Also tense due to the fact that Roz had a relationship with the owner who now has a wife. Someone is trying to sabotage the winery and Caprice isn’t going to let that someone ruin her day. So before she walks down the aisle she is going to find out who is spreading rumors but before she can begin the owner turns up dead.
Now along with all the details of a wedding, she needs to find a killer and put everything to rights.
This is a really good addition. Great characters, good pace. I read this in one sitting.

In New York Times bestselling author Ellery Adams’ intriguing new Secret, Book, and Scone Society novel, Nora Pennington and her fiction loving friends in small-town Miracle Springs, North Carolina, encounter a young woman desperately in need of a new beginning . . .
This is the second in this new series. Nora is the owner of Miracle Books and believes with all of her warm heart that there is a book for everything and the right ones can bring healing of the heart and mind.
The core group has all had their share of horrific challenges and rather than sit home and feel sorry for themselves, they have joined Nora in the Secret,Book,and Scone Society to do for others. They each have a story and we haven’t heard about all of them yet, but I already love these women.
When Nora finds a slip of a girl in a hospital gown sleeping in her store she and the group try to help but the girl who calls herself Abilene isn’t ready to share her story. Obviously terrified and abused, the group does what they can, each using their own talents to draw her out.
When one of the towns not so favorite older ladies is found by the group while delivering nice baskets of things to those in need face down in the pond dead, Nora and the ladies are ready to solve a mystery.
At the same time as a new business comes to town and another person is helped into the afterlife they aren’t sure if Abilene is a victim or a killer. Either way they won’t stop until they find out.
I love these characters. Women who with just a nudge and a lot of hope have become the hero of their own lives. Now I’m going to see if there really is a Miracle Springs because the pastries alone are worth moving!
Well Done on this new series!
