    Snow is not the only thing falling this December - spirits are, too. That's because this year's needlework convention in Nashville is tragically interrupted when Milwaukee shop owner Belle Hammermill tumbles nine stories to her untimely death. At first, Betsy Devonshire thinks the fall was just an unfortunate accident. The trouble is, Belle's unsavory reputation causes suspicions to flare. She has plenty of enemies with more than enough motive.

    Another 4 stars. This is a light and quick read. The characters lovable and realistic. If you are looking for a series with a likeable, honest, straightforward main character with friends & co-workers that are relatable and a peek into small town life with a who-done-it as the mechanism for spending time with them, this is for you.

    After her good friend Godwin has a nasty quarrel with John, his significant other, full-time needlework shop owner and part-time sleuth Betsy Devonshire finds herself with a roommate. Betsy doesn't mind having company, though Godwin is restless and unhappy over the sudden break-up. But sadness turns to grief when Betsy and Godwin discover John dead in his home, and Godwin is arrested for the murder. Betsy knows her friend couldn't be the killer, and sets out to prove it.

    Overall

    This was pretty good light read. I wish the entire series was on Audible. I gave it 4 and not 5 stars because while it is entertaining I figured out the killer before it was revealed. I gave it 4 stars because I liked the characters and the flow of the story. I will buy the next few books that are available on Audible.

    Leann Sweeney's Yellow Rose Mystery series has found fans in listeners who enjoy a tall glass of sweet tea and quirky Texan characters. In the series debut, Southern belle Abby Rose stumbles upon the secrets of her heritage when she becomes determined to solve the mystery of who killed her gardener. As the list of possible suspects increases, Abby learns her past is shrouded in mystery.

    Overall

    I thought I found a new series. First, I don't like the narrator. Her voice is annoying. Second, Abbey is financially independent so instead of working she butts her nose into a murder mystery? Really? She watches her sister on the brink of getting a PhD and this is all she is interested in? It sounds like she is a bored rich girl. Third, I'm from Houston and I have never heard anyone say when the skies do open up, it will be like a cow peeing on a flat rock. And, there are many others. I won't be buying another book in this series. I did not find Abbey smart or funny, just annoying. She needs to find another hobby.

    Jacobia Tiptree saved her sanity - and her son, Sam - the day she abandoned Wall Street for the seacoast village of Eastport, Maine. In her new home, a charmingly dilapidated fixer-upper, she looks forward to repairing old radiators and restoring antique shutters for years to come. But Jake's hopes of serenity are dashed when tiny Eastport erupts in a crime wave. Hometown bad boy Kenny Mumford - old flame of Jake's best friend and fellow sleuth, Ellie White - is the first victim.

    Overall

    I have read the first and second book of this series and will probably read the third. If I have nothing else to read. While it is entertaining, there are things about the book that is annoying. While Jake and her family are well developed characters, many of the other characters seem to fall into stereotypes. I know that small towns are prone to gossip, but I wonder if people in Maine all have guns and tend to be closed mouth about their feelings and family. It sounded like Graves was talking about a small town in the Appalachians. I guess that is a stereotype that I have about that region. Also, the tie with New York should be cut. Is this the only town in Maine that people from New York want to? And does Jacobia have to know them? I thought New York was a big city. Anyway, it was a good story. I like the developments with Jacobia's family. Like I said I will read another book in this series.
