Coco confirms that a mysterious monkey has been swinging around the Big Easy. Grace thinks she might be able to help corral the cheeky Capuchin in addition to solving her case.

MY REVIEW


Another wonderful installment in this one of a kind series.

“If I could talk to the animals, just imagine it.” ~ Doctor Dolittle. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to know what animals are thinking. Thanks to author Laura Morrigan, I get an idea of what could be happening in their little heads.

Having already secured a following for her original Call of the Wilde Mysteries, Ms. Morrigan has read her reader’s minds, and penned the best book in the series so far, sure to bring new fans.

TAKE THE MONKEY AND RUN is a thrilling rollercoaster ride of intrigue and mystery. From page one, author Morrigan started this fantastic read off with action, and pulled me into the story. Chapter after chapter brought about new elements to this tale that kept the excitement growing all the way to the final page and the last surprising sentence!

If you love cozy mysteries, but are looking for one with a fresh twist, TAKE THE MONKEY AND RUN, and the other three books in the Call of the Wilde series are just what you’re looking for!

DRESSED TO KILT
Book 3 in the Scottish Highland Mysteries
by Hannah Reed


The national bestselling author of Hooked on Ewe is back with a mysterious murder that leaves the Scottish village of Glenkillen shaken and stirred...
 
Winter is leaving the residents of Glenkillen snowbound, but Eden isn’t about to let the weather dampen her spirits. With only a little time left in Scotland, she’s determined to make the most of it—starting with attending a fancy whisky tasting with local looker Leith Cameron. But her classy date turns into a major party foul after a woman is found drowned in one of the vats of alcohol.
 
Eden immediately steps in as a Special Constable to help solve the case, but her investigation turns sour when she realizes that the killer could be somehow connected to her own Scottish heritage. Now, in order to find the proof she needs to put the murderer behind bars, she’ll have to take a shot at unearthing her family’s past—before she herself winds up buried...

MY REVIEW


DRESSED TO KILT is the perfect installment to this wonderful series.

Eden Elliott, the protagonist in this series, is facing the end of her tourist visa, and coming to grips with the fact she has to leave Scotland. But before that happens, you know author Hannah Reed has to give Eden one more murder to solve. And this one is a doozy!

Hannah Reed once again gives her readers a story as strong as Scottish stout. AS with the first two books in the Scottish Highland Mysteries, DRESSED TO KILT is a well plotted whodunit that’s leads the reader on a wonderfully mysterious journey to the truth of the who and the why of the murder.

Fans of Hannah Reed aka Deb Baker, are going to love DRESSED TO KILT, as will new readers to the series.

GONE WITH THE WOOL

The national bestselling author of Wound Up in Murder spins a deadly yarn of knitting bees, butterflies, and beauty queens. 
 
Every October, thousands of monarch butterflies flock to California’s Monterey Peninsula to spend the winter there. To welcome their colorful guests, Cadbury by the Sea holds a weeklong festival complete with a butterfly queen and her court.
 
Eager to show some town spirit, Casey Feldstein finds herself fluttering back and forth between setting up a yarn retreat, baking and helping out at the festival. But when a former butterfly queen is found dead with a knife in her back after a Bless the Butterflies service, Casey must set her loom aside to hook a killer with a score to settle.


Includes knitting patterns and a recipe!

MY REVIEW


Author Betty Hechtman has knitted up another delightful tale in this addition to the Yarn Retreat Mysteries!

GONE WITH THE WOOL isn’t just another Yarn Retreat Mystery . . . it’s the best in the series. Ms. Hechtman really made use of her thinking cap (wonder if it was knitted?) when she penned this one!

I loved the October setting for the town of Cadbury by the Sea, and the monarch butterfly imagery. I felt like I was at the center of it all.

The search for who stabbed the former butterfly queen, and all the mayhem along the way, made GONE WITH THE WOOL hard to put down. With plenty suspects to sort through, and many things to throw off your guesses, you’ll be lost in the pages of this book, and not want to put it down.

Returning fans, and new readers alike are going to enjoy GONE WITH THE WOOL. And, no worries . . . you don’t have to know how to knit to read this series.

Make sure to check out the back of the book for fun knitting patterns and a yummy recipe! 


All three of these wonderful titles are available for pre-order!
Release date
