    The discount travel package to Italy seemed like a great deal: Emily Andrew could lead her globe-trotting Iowans on the trip of a lifetime and bring her family to boot. Maybe she should have read the fine print… Sharing their itinerary with a group of hyper-competitive aspiring romance writers is just a prelude to more Machiavellian drama than an Italian opera. But the real killer is a contest sponsored by a publishing house - and the depths to which the dime-novel divas will plunge to win a book contract.

    I really don't have a lot to say. As far as plot goes, this is a recreation of the first two books. The only difference is the location. I couldn't finish this book and will not get another one in this series.

    This is a fun cozy mystery. Jake and Fred find another mystery that they can't help but solve. Bonnie is along for the adventure. These are really good mysteries and are fun to listen to when you want a light read.

    Fleeing a disastrous love affair, university librarian Amy Webber moves in with her aunt in a quiet mountain town in Virginia. She quickly busies herself with managing a charming public library that requires all her attention with its severe lack of funds and overabundance of eccentric patrons. The last thing she needs is a new, available neighbor whose charm lures her into trouble. Dancer-turned-teacher and choreographer Richard Muir inherited the farmhouse next door from his great-uncle, Paul Dassin. But town folklore claims the house's original owner was poisoned by his wife.

    This is a pretty good cozy mystery. It has all the things cozy mysteries need to have: budding romance, woman running away from a disastrous relationship, a woman who almost allows her insecurities to ruin her budding romance and an aunt to remind her the important things in life. The plot was pretty good. The villain is unexpected. I might get the next book when it's available.

But when the plan backfires, Raven's world is thrown into chaos, and Christian's loyalty is put to the ultimate test.

    This book is different from the previous books in the series. The focus is on the wildlings and starting a new story for future books. I'm not sure how the series will develop from here but I'll tune in to find out.

    The last thing patrol cop Kate Prospero expected to find on her nightly rounds was a werewolf covered in the blood of his latest victim. But then, she also didn't expect that shooting him would land her in the crosshairs of a Magic Enforcement Agency task force, who wants to know why she killed their lead snitch. The more Prospero learns about the dangerous new potion the MEA is investigating, the more she's convinced that earning a spot on their task force is the career break she's been wanting. But getting the assignment proves much easier than solving the case.

    Nestled at the foot of Pine Mountain, Rose Hill has one traffic light, one patrol car, and one cold-blooded killer. When rich and rotten Theo Eldridge is found bludgeoned to death in the local veterinary clinic, Rose Hill police chief Scott Gordon is forced to work with ambitious county investigator Sarah Albright. Unfortunately Sarah seems more interested in seducing Scott than in solving the crime. Scott's crazy about Maggie Fitzpatrick, but she's still grieving over the mysterious disappearance of the love of her life.

    I'm so glad I gave this book a chance. Rose Hill is an entertaining mixture and small town romance. All of the characters are fully fleshed out and engaging. The mystery is interesting with lots of plot twists. I really enjoyed this story and look forward the next book in this series.

When estate sale organizer Audrey Nealon enters the Tate Mansion after the widow's death, she discovers nothing's been changed since the day the house was built.

    Small towns and gossip go together like flaky crust and sweet pastry cream. Between the police scanners, the coffee ladies, and the senior center, no secret is safe for long. But Vangie Vale wants nothing more than to stay under the radar...especially the police radar. So when her new bakery is linked to a murder investigation, nothing will stop the gossip mill from connecting her to the dead body. Can't have that.
