So this was my first historical fiction book. I honestly wasn’t sure what I was in for but I liked it a lot. The story was well written and entertaining. I also liked the narration a lot too. I enjoyed the ups and downs of the relationship as it grew. I also really liked that it was a completely clean read. I’ll be sure to listen to the rest of the series in the future.

Stumbling over a dead body on the beach trips Ziva Diaz up in more ways than one, particularly when one of her beauty clients is charged with the murder. She doesn’t believe for a minute that Mrs. J. would murder anyone; too bad she’s the only one. As Ziva sets out to solve the mystery, someone else sets out to ruin both her reputation and her friend’s wedding. Can Ziva solve the case and serve up some just desserts? Or will her investigation fall flatter than a wedding soufflé?

I’m new to Cozy Mysteries and was excited to listen to Kiss & Makeup. The story was well written and the narrator was great too. I liked how modern and current it was and enjoyed the beauty aspects throughout the story. I liked the book a lot and look forward to reading others in the series.

I’ll admit that I didn’t know much about concentration camps and Nazi officers, aside from what I learned in school years ago. But this book taught me a lot of things. I enjoyed the story very much, especially the emotions of the lead character. It was very believable and engaging. Such a well written book and I also enjoyed the narrator. I didn’t love the ending, if I’m being honest, but that’s okay!
