I haven't done one of these in a LONG time. But here we go...
(If you'd like to participate you can go here.)
In the past week I've read and reviewed:
Hearse and Buggy (Amish Mystery, Bk 1) by Laura Bradford -
A cozy mystery set in a small Pennsylvania town where "English" and Amish meet. Claire tries to solve the murder that took place behind her shop, as well as trying to figure out who might be playing some nasty, not-so-innocent tricks on a neighboring shopkeeper - who also happens to be Amish.
Corpse in the Crystal Ball (Fortune Teller Mystery, Bk 2) by Kari Lee Townsend -
A cozy mystery set in the small town of Divinity. The guy Sunny likes-but-it's-complicated 's ex-girlfriend is murdered. And he's the suspect, never mind that he's a detective himself. So Sunny's out to help him. And unlike the detective, she's actually been asked to assist on the case.
Brownies and Broomsticks (Magical Bakery Mystery, Bk 1) by Bailey Cates -
A cozy mystery in which Katie has relocated to Savannah - which manages to have a small town attitude despite being one of Georgia's largest cities. She's leaving a bad relationship and going to work in a bakery, along with her aunt and uncle. Only she's also learning that there's a bit more going into the baked good than just ingredients. Like maybe a little magic. And besides all that, the lady that just threatened to ruin them before they've even opened? She's been murdered.
My thoughts for all three of these can be found in the post "More cozies. And some more magic."
I also read:
The Pregnancy Project by Gaby Rodriguez with Jenna Glatzer -
A memoir about a girl who faked a pregnancy for her Senior project... all in the name of questioning and fighting stereotypes. The story was also made into a Lifetime movie. Review post to come.
