Allison Janda

I really enjoyed this cozy mystery, which is my favorite genre! Marian is the main character who’s head of the magazine, Food Porn. This is a whodunit that reminds me of Stephanie Plum – the series by Janet Evanovich. Everyone is a suspect! Who killed the male model with the poisonous cupcake and is now after Marian? She tries to survive while catching the eye of a hot new model. Very enjoyable read and I am looking forward to reading more from Allison Janda.

The Witchling Grows Up by Mary Moriarty

Standard

91J1p7ugp+L._SL1500_This is a story about a witch named Dylan and a vampire named Justice. I am normally not into vampire type of books, but this isn’t that type of story. The prologue sucked me in right away as we learn about Dylan’s ancestors and the dangers they face as witches. Dylan grows up and takes on her own business at a tea parlor and B&B – a place I wish I could visit!  Dylan is protected by many animals as well as a dragon. Another protector of hers, is Justice. Moriarty presents wonderful, vivid descriptions of the setting, characters and builds suspense when a strange couple comes to stay at the B&B. Dylan and Justice both sense that this couple is Dylan’s dark enemy. This is a very well written book that put me in the mood for autumn, which is my favorite season. Even though this is not my normal genre to read, I find myself wanting to read the next installment in this series! Highly recommended!

Haunted by Erica Sutherhome

Haunted

Erica Sutherhome

I really enjoyed this short novel. Erica Sutherhome knows how to weave suspense and thrills into a story with a little romance thrown in. Main character, Carmencita, is kidnapped near the beginning with great description of the kidnappers, as well as our heroine’s strengths and weaknesses during the ordeal. I was flipping through the pages during her escape attempt, leading to her new life. Her brother gives her a locket before he died. This locket is the reason for her kidnapping. As an author myself, I am inspired by this story. I know how it is to live in fear, whether it’s out of paranoia or stalking. Sutherhome writes with fantastic flow. I really wanted the book to go on so I could learn more about Carmen’s life, but I am and always will be a fan of short novels. I cannot wait to read another book from Erica Sutherhome. This was truly a gem to read!
