An intrepid 1930s Manhattan socialite uncovers deadly secrets during an assignment to the Hamptons in this riveting historical cozy mystery for readers of Victoria Thompson, Anne Perry, and Rhys Bowen.
Westhampton, 1938. To the dismay of her well-to-do family, Elizabeth “Biz” Adams is quickly establishing herself as a seasoned photographer over at the Daily Trumpet. Growing more confident in her decision to pursue a career, Elizabeth is thrilled when she and her reporter sidekick, Ralph Kaminsky, are sent to Long Island to cover the story of a young maid found dead in one of the glamourous summer homes in the devastating aftermath of the Great New England Hurricane—also known as the Long Island Express.
At first it’s assumed that the young woman was caught in the terrible storm, but when a suspicious wound is found on the side of her head, the police suspect murder. The maid’s death becomes even more tragic when it’s discovered she was pregnant, and with Elizabeth and Kaminsky at the scene of the crime, the Daily Trumpet scoops all the other papers in town.
The young woman’s boyfriend emerges as the likeliest suspect. But as Elizabeth follows the story, she begins to wonder whether someone in the household of the maid’s employers might be responsible—someone who’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth about the baby’s paternity hidden. . . .

My Review
I loved this historic cozy mystery from the first to the last page, it was really a pleasant discovery.
Elizabeth is a photographer for the newspaper. After a hurricane she must go with a writer colleague to photograph a corpse. The maid's body was found in a devastated house but she didn't die from the storm, she was killed. Later it turns out she was also pregnant. The two colleagues have to try to find the culprit to save their work, the newspaper is in crisis and it takes a big scoop to increase sales.
Elizabeth is a strong, independent and very modern  woman, intelligent with a great intuition.
I loved the setting, this New York of the 30s really fascinated me, the author showed great historical accuracy even in the smallest details.
It's written really well, with a slowing and compelling pace, so many suspicions and many alibis to verify, we must wait for the end to discover the culprit.
This is my first book to read in this series and wow... I will be going back to catch up and read the first one.
Highly recommended especially for those who love cozy historical mysteries.

About the Author

Mystery writing lets Peg indulge her curiosity under the guise of “work” (aka research). As a kid, she read the entire set of children’s encyclopedias her parents gave her and has been known to read the dictionary. She put pen to paper at age seven when she wrote plays and forced her cousins to perform them at Christmas dinner. She switched to mysteries when she discovered the perfect hiding place for a body down the street from her house.
When she’s not writing, she spends her time reading, cooking, spoiling her granddaughter and checking her books’ stats on Amazon.
A former Jersey girl, Peg now resides in Michigan with her husband and Westhighland white terrier, Reg. She is the author of the Sweet Nothings Lingerie series (written as Meg London), the Gourmet De-Lite series, the Lucille series, the Cranberry Cove series, and the Farmer’s Daughter series.

by Kathleen Bridge


About the Book

Cozy Mystery 
3rd in Series 
Kensington Publishing Corporation (May 21, 2019) 
Paperback: 204 pages 
ISBN-10: 1516105257
ISBN-13: 978-1516105250

When a murderer crashes a masquerade ball, it's up to Liz to unmask the killer . . .
It's been quite a year for novelist Liz Holt. She's overcome a lot and is finally feeling at peace with her new life at her family's hotel, the Indialantic by the Sea, on the beautiful barrier island of Melbourne Beach, Florida. She's exactly where she needs to be to ring in the New Year at the Florida Writes Literary Masquerade Ball.
But when her ex-boyfriend surprises her at the ball, she can't disguise her anger, and the two engage in a very public argument. Naturally, after her ex is found dead on the hotel grounds, shot through the heart, Liz tops the suspect list. With the help of family and friends, she needs to clear her name before the real killer waltzes away scot-free . . .
Recipes included!

My Review
It was a compelling read with so many funny and eccentric characters, lovable animals and an amazing setting.
After living in Manhattan, Liz returns to her family who lives on a wonderful island in Florida.She lives in the hotel of her aunt Amelia, a former actress. She is divided between a passion for writing and one for investigation. This time she will have to try to save herself from the murder charge when her ex-boyfriend is found dead and she is the main suspect.
Liz is a great character, she loves her family, loves writing, cooking and has a lot of intuition for investigations. After the end of her relationship with the hateful Travis she starts dating the fantastic Ryan. Adorable are aunt Amelia, very protective of her family, and her friend Betty who thinks she is Miss Marple.
It is written very well with so many clues and false leads that keeps you glued to the last page to find out the culprit. To make it even more enjoyable, there are references to TV series and spots in the 60s and 70s and recipes
It can be read as standalone although it is the third book in the series, I look forward to reading other adventures of Liz and her friends
Highly recommended

For generations, the women of the Brown family on Peach Cove Island have been known for their Southern sass and sweet homemade desserts at their beloved Peach Diner.

Now Marygene has left her husband and returned to her hometown, where she can almost feel Mama's presence.
But all is not peachy back home. Marygene has barely tied on an apron when a diner regular drops dead at the counter. When it turns out the old man's been poisoned, Jena Lynn is led away in handcuffs and the family eatery is closed. Now, to save her sister and the diner, Marygene must find the real killer. With some startling assistance from her Mama's spirit, Marygene will be serving up a special order of just desserts . . .
Includes Seven Recipes from Marygene’s Kitchen!

My Review

In choosing this book I was fascinated by the colorful summer cover, cheerful, warm and I was not disappointed, I loved every page of this mystery.
Marygene returns home by escaping from a violent husband and hopes to be able to work in her family's restaurant. One of their clients, however, dies after eating a cake that her sister had prepared just for him. Despite he father being Sheriff, Marygene has to improvise as an investigator to save her sister and her beloved work. The help of her ghost mother and her dear friend Betsy will be very important.
The characters are very realistic, Marygene is lovable, intelligent, a great cook but she also has flaws, she chose the wrong person to share her life with. The setting is very charming, this small and cozy island on the Georgia coast.
It was a really funny mystery, with a fast pace and twists, humor, a bit of paranormal but also deep themes like domestic violence. If we add the atmosphere of a small southern town and tasty recipes it becomes a truly amazing read. By the way I am very curious to try the included recipes. Great debut for this new series, I can't wait to meet these amazing characters again.
A must read for all lovers of cozy mysteries

Review: A Deadly Feast by Lucy Burdette

A Deadly Feast:
A Key West Food Critic Mystery
by Lucy Burdette

About the Book

A Deadly Feast: A Key West Food Critic Mystery
Cozy Mystery
9th in Series
Crooked Lane Books (May 7, 2019)
Hardcover: 272 pages
ISBN-10: 1683319699
ISBN-13: 978-1683319696
Digital ASIN: B07HM9NCJQ
National bestselling author Lucy Burdette’s intrepid food critic Hayley Snow must sniff out a killer in the ninth Key West Food Critic mystery.
Key West food critic Hayley Snow scents-es something fishy when a customer falls stone-crab cold dead on a seafood tasting tour.
Thanksgiving is nearly here, and Key West food critic Hayley Snow has just one more assignment to put to bed for Key Zest magazine before she gets to celebrate with her family and her police officer fiancé, Nathan Bransford. Then, just days later, wedding bells will ring—if death doesn’t toll first.
The sweet potatoes and stuffing will have to wait when Hayley picks up a distraught phone call from her friend, Analise Smith. On the last stop of a seafood tasting tour run by Analise, one of the customers collapsed—dead. With the police on the verge of shutting down the tour—and ruining Analise’s business—Hayley can hardly refuse her friend’s entreaties to investigate.
As if wedding jitters and family strife weren’t enough for Hayley to worry about, there’s crusty pastry chef Martha Hubbard, whose key lime pie may have been the murder weapon—but did she poison her own pie or was she framed? As the hours to Turkey Day tick away, the pressure cooker is on for Hayley to serve up the culprit on a silver platter in A Deadly Feast, national bestselling author Lucy Burdette’s taste-tempting ninth Key West Food Critic mystery.
My Review

It was a fun and delightful read, not to be read on an empty stomach, there are so many delicious foods that your mouth is constantly watering.
Hayley Snow is a food critic and is about to marry Detective Nathan Bransford. They need a place to live to wait while they finish the work in their future home, she has to manage the preparations for the wedding and also she is in charge of investigating a strange death occurred at a seafood tasting in which she has participated.
All the characters are well developed. Hayley is an intelligent person, very helpful and generous, always helping everyone, she can't say no.
I love Key West and its restaurants, its descriptions are so vivid that it feels like being there.
Even if it is the ninth book of the series, all the information necessary to read it as a standalone is provided.
A pleasant reading with many subplots, an enchanting setting and appreciable final recipes.
Highly recommended for those who love cozy mysteries

by D.E. Haggerty


About the Book

Cozy Mystery/Romance/Humor 
3rd in Series 
Independently Published (April 18, 2019) 
Print Length: 183 pages 

I know who you really are.
Pru has a secret, which she has no plans to reveal - ever. But after a woman is murdered and all clues point to her, she has no choice but to disclose her true identity. When her revelations help thwart the killer's plan to frame Pru for the murder, the killer begins stalking her. With each note he sends, he gets closer. The police are stumped. Pru wants to run away. She really, really wants to run, but Ajax has found the woman of his dreams and he's not letting her go anywhere. He can be patient. In the meantime, he'll protect her with his life. Pru isn't feeling very patient, and her friends, Mel and Terri, are definitely not willing to wait until the police uncover who the stalker is. The three friends take matters into their own hands and jump headfirst into the investigation.
Will Pru and her friends uncover her stalker before he turns his violence on Pru?

My Review
This book is very funny and addictive, full of twists and humor, I really loved this particular trio of investigators.
The three protagonists are adorable, I would like to be part of their group. Pru is the most quiet and reserved, Mel is the most enterprising but very protective and then there is Terry the most mature and wise. All three work in the same school and are both engaged to men who carry out investigations for work (a detective, a private investigator) while Pru is very much courted by Alex, a teacher. Pru had to move after reporting a stalker. Now the man she reported is free again and she receives threatening letters. After a woman whom Pru was to meet is found dead, she and her group of friends must solve the case before gets in trouble.
Another interesting aspect of the book are the quotations at the beginning of the chapter and the various books cited by Pru during the story.
It was a fast, pleasant, interesting read with a perfect mix of mystery and romance.
Highly recommended

About the Author

I grew up reading everything I could get my grubby hands on, from my mom's Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew, to Little Women. When I wasn't flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although on the odd occasion I did manage to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic before returning to the law. But practicing law really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out running a B&B wasn’t my thing either. I polished off that manuscript languishing in the attic before following the husband to Istanbul where I decided to give the whole writer-thing a go. But ten years was too many to stay away from my adopted home. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where, in between tennis matches and failing to save the world, I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.

Hide Not Seek is my fifteenth novel.

Review: Wed, Read & Dead by V.M. Burns

Wed, Read & Dead

(Mystery Bookshop) 

by V.M. Burns


About the Book

Cozy Mystery 
4th in Series 
Kensington (April 30, 2019) 
Paperback: 272 pages
ISBN-10: 1496718291

Bookstore owner Samantha Washington sells and solves mysteries in North Harbor, Michigan—including the murder of her mother's wedding planner . . .
Sam's mother can't wait to wed her wealthy beau, Harold Robertson. The big mystery is how they're going to pull off a lavish wedding in three weeks. Harold's snobby sister-in-law proposes a solution: engage flamboyant wedding planner Lydia Lighthouse. But their beacon of hope quickly sends everyone into a blind rage, most of all the groom-to-be. So when the maddening micromanager is strangled with her own scarf, it's a shock, but not a surprise.
It’s a case of art imitating life as Sam pens her next historical mystery set in England between the wars. Lady Daphne Marsh insists on marrying Lord James Browning on Christmas Eve, three weeks hence. But when the fop planning their wedding ends up with a knife in his back, she vows to nab the backstabber before she walks down the aisle.
Meanwhile, when she’s not writing, Sam and her beloved and boisterous Nana Jo rush to shine a light on Lydia's killer—so her mother's new husband won't spend his honeymoon behind bars . . .
My Review

The thing that I loved this book is that the protagonist is writing a historical detective story so it's like reading two mysteries in one.
Samantha owns a bookstore and is also a mystery writer. While she is very busy at the store for Christmas shopping is also busy with the preparations for her mother's marriage. Unfortunately the wedding planner hired to help them makes everyone crazy. The situation gets even worse when she is found dead and the main suspect is the future groom for a fight they had had earlier. Sam and her weird group of friends will try to solve the case before the wedding. 
Although it is the fourth book in the series you can read it as a standalone, I can't wait to read the previous ones too.
This author is really good, her style is brilliant, engaging, the plot is well developed and intertwined, the characters are adorable, the places are impeccably described that really seem to be there.
Highly recommended
