A SHATTERING CRIME
Book 3 in the Stained-Glass Mysteries
by Jennifer McAndrews


It’s death by Danish in the newest mystery from the national bestselling author of Death Under Glass, featuring stained-glass enthusiast and amateur sleuth Georgia Kelly.
 
Life in Wenwood, New York, sparkles for Georgia, but for one of her neighbors, it’s about to lose its luster...
 
Georgia’s day-to-day routine finally seems to be lining up. Stained-glass projects in the morning, clerical work for a law office in the afternoon, and waitressing in the evening. Best of all she gets to spend relaxing Sundays with her new boyfriend. But that comfortable pattern is about to be broken.
 
First Georgia’s cat goes into heat and literally disturbs the peace. Then Georgia’s mother drops in for a visit with her new husband in tow. But everything falls to pieces after a local activist is found dead from a poisoned danish. Authorities quickly put the heat on Rozelle, owner of the local bakery, but no one in town believes Rozelle capable of murder. Now it’s up to Georgia to crack the case and foil the real killer’s plans before the tranquility of Wenwood is shattered.

MY REVIEW


A sparkling addition to the Stained-Glass Mysteries!

Author Jennifer McAndrews has written another fabulous installment to her colorful, National Bestselling cozy mystery series. I finished this book in almost one setting. I didn’t want to put it down!

A SHATTERING CRIME is a wonderful mix of mystery, intrigue, and humor. I really like protagonist, Georgia Kelly. The story is from her point of view, and she say and thinks some of the funniest things! I laughed out loud a few times. As for the mystery aspect, it was extremely well thought out. There were just enough twists in the story, without weighing it down, to keep me guessing until the end.

You’re going to want to add A SHATTERING CRIME to your reading list!

Book 5 in the Amish Quilt Shop Mysteries
by Isabella Alan


Amish quilt shop owner Angie Braddock crosses wires with a killer in the latest from the national bestselling author of Murder, Plainly Read...

Spring has arrived in Holmes County and Angie couldn’t be happier. She’s got great friends, a thriving business, and is in the perfect relationship with Sheriff James Mitchell. The only thing raining on her parade is her mother drafting her into a massive home renovation project—and using their sudden mother/daughter bonding time to comment on Angie’s ticking biological clock. 
 
The house’s repairs and upgrades between the Amish craftsmen and their Englisch counterparts are proceeding well until a tremendous shock comes to the workers when the electrician is found dead on site. With the sheriff suspecting foul play, it falls to Angie to root a killer out of the woodwork. . . .

MY REVIEW


Author Isabella Alan has stitched together a wonderfully crafty mystery!

MURDER, HANDCRAFTED, the fifth installment of the Amish Quilt Shop Mysteries, is one of the best of this series so far. It’s a mystery that will really hold your attention.

I’m loving the many Amish mysteries on the market these days, and this series is just one example why. With so many likeable characters, and a delightful setting, readers will find themselves want to move to Holmes Country, Rolling Brook, Ohio. I know I’m ready to pack my bags!

A perfect combination of mayhem, and mystery, with some great action, MURDER, HANDCRAFTED is a fast moving story that kept getting better with every chapter! Simply a fantastic whodunit.

TITLE WAVE
Book 10 in the Booktown Mysteries
by Lorna Barrett

Hardcover

Tricia and Angelica leave Booktown behind for a pleasure cruise, but they’re going to need their life jackets because a murderer has also booked passage—in Lorna Barrett’s New York Times bestselling series.
 
While her bookstore, Haven’t Got a Clue, is rebuilt following a devastating fire, Tricia Miles and her sister, Angelica, decide to book a cruise for some much needed R&R. Naturally they choose a Mystery Lovers cruise, where they can ponder whodunnit in deck chairs while sipping colorful drinks and soaking up some rays.
 
But the fun is cut short when a fellow passenger is murdered for real. Is the killer a famous mystery author, one of his fans, or a member of the ship’s crew? As Tricia tries to find the killer before they reach port, she may be cruising for a bruising...

MY REVIEW


Another wonderful installment to the bestselling Booktown Mysteries!

I was a bit hesitant when I first started reading TITLE WAVE. I don’t normally care for books that take the main character away from their hometown. I needn’t have worried. Author Lorna Barrett transitioned her protagonist and friends perfectly. The cruise ship themed story made for a marvelous whodunit!

A tale of murder on the high seas, TITLE WAVE was a fast moving thrill ride. Chapter after chapter this story was filled with enough twists and turns to capsize a ship. With more suspects then a few, I kept second guessing myself on the killer’s identity. When the reveal came, I was taken by surprise, and even more so at how that scene ended!

Booktown Mystery fans, and new readers alike are going to be thrilled with TITLE WAVE!

Make sure not to miss the tasty recipes at the back of the book!
