    Clare Cosi used to manage the historic Village Blend coffeehouse…until she opted for quieter pastures and a more suburban life. But after ten years and a little friendly cajoling from the owner (a fresh pot of Jamaican Blue Mountain was all it took), she's back to the grind. With a sprawling rent-free apartment directly above the Village Blend, her cat Java by her side, and plenty of coffeehouse redecorating ideas, Clare is thrilled to return to work. Until she discovers the assistant manager unconscious in the back of the store, coffee grounds strewn everywhere.

    It was ok. The first time I read it I had to put it down because it was boring and I couldn't get into it. The second time I picked it up, it was a little better. The characters and plotline seemed a little more interesting. I really can't say much about the book because there isn't much to say. I won't be buying the rest in the series.

    Jake Tiptree has a problem. A coven of self-styled witches has taken over her Eastport, Maine, waterfront rental property for Halloween - and their repair requests are annoyingly frequent. But while Jake is normally game to take on any fixer-upper challenge, she'd rather be tackling her own needed repairs on her 1823 Federal-style home. Until, that is, preacher Gene Dibble turns up dead - and the whole town is convinced that Jake and her tenants are up to sorcery and skullduggery.

    I like this series. There really isn't anything bad to say about this installment of this series. Sarah Graves weaves an interesting tail that puts Jake into trouble that only she can get out of. As always, Lindsay Ellison does a fantastic job as Jake. In my opinion, she is Jake Tiptree. I have read all of the books in this series and will read the next one as well.

    Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the Dark Fae in order to harness their magic, only to create a demonic energy more powerful than they could have imagined. Quietly amassing their strength for centuries, the Vampiric Fae - led by the merciless Myst, Queen of the Indigo Court - are determined to enslave the world. Only one witch stands in her way....

    Story

    This is a great book. It picks up right where the first book, Night Myst, left off. Cecily and her friends continue to fight the good fight. They lose allies and gain others. The characters grow and develop for better or worse. The one thing I did not like is that Cecily is always the sacrificial lamb. I know that is part of her character's purpose, I only wish all of the betrayals and humiliations did not have to happen to her. It should be spread out a little more. This is a great book and I can't wait to read the next one.

    An unidentified woman in a nightgown is the victim of a hit-and-run accident that leaves her unconscious and seriously injured. The image of the young woman stumbling along a dark, winding road is one true-crime writer Molly Blume cannot shake. It draws her to a bedside in intensive care, where, before dying, the victim whispers three names: Robbie, Max, and Nina. It is sufficient enough to reinforce Molly's gut instinct that there are sinister circumstances behind the assault on Lenore Saunders.

    Story

    There are no redeemable factors to help this book. It is in a word awful. The characters are stale and lifeless and so was the plot. I did not finish the book nor did I fast forward to the end to see who committed the crime and why. I did not care. The author used to many Yiddish phrases that were out of place and for a character that is based in California, there is no reason that she should have a stereotypical Jewish accent. It ruined the story. I wouldn't waste a credit on it.
