A Charming Blend ( a Magical Cures Mystery and A Killer Coffee Mystery crossover Mystery) by Tonya Kappes

Hello to all!!!

                       I hope you had a great relaxing Sunday which allowed you some good reading time. Mine was quite busy in fact but this novella was simply the perfect reads i needed excellent and not long  ( really could have been longer but then no time for the rest of daily tasks).
It's a cross over as it's said in the title but while i've started bothj series i'm way behind in at least one of them and still could enjoy this novella without troubles so  don't hesitate and try it!



Happy reading!

Description from goodreads :
                     
 You won’t want to miss this crossover tale of two of your favorite cozy mystery sleuths, June Heal from the Magical Cures Mystery Series and Roxanne Bloom from the Killer Coffee Series.

When Roxy Bloom and Patrick Cane got a gift card at the Full Moon Treesort in Whispering Falls, Kentucky, they figured it’d be a fantastic honeymoon.

When June Heal heard from the Whispering Falls Newspaper report from editor Faith Mortimer that there was a nosy coffee barista coming to town and she needed an eye kept on her, June was quick to put Mr. Prince Charming on the tourist, Roxanne Bloom.

When a dead body is discovered during the annual Whispering Fall tree lightening, Roxy Bloom just can’t seem to keep her nose out of it, even though she feels like something strange is going on in the cozy town.

June Heal is using powers, she never thought she’d use, to keep tourist Roxy Bloom away from the crime scene.

Will the two feisty sleuths come together to solve this murder before Roxy’s honeymoon is over or before June Heal uses all of her powers to keep Roxy away from their secrets of Whispering Falls?



My opinion:
          This is a novella so of course it feels too short but still it's a wonderful cross over between two great series. Even if i'm not up to date in both series i didn't feel like i was missing any important info so this a wonderful advantage for those who would be new to one or both series.

Magic and christmas is a good mix when you add a little investigation in it.

I recommend this novella to both readers of the series Killer coffee series and/or Magical Cures Mystery series but also to those simply wanting a good novella set at Christmas time with a good dosis of humour and romance.



Score:  4,5/5

Angel ( Linear tactical 4) by Janie Crouch

Hello to all!

We are enjoying a few days with sun and dry weather and it's simply so agreable after long rainy days that it's hard to stay inside to read but i'm trying.

Today i'm sharing with you an early review of Angel book 4 of the Linear Tactical series which i'm enjoying more and more after each book.
This my opinion on the less steamy version.


Happy reading!
Publisher: Calamity Jane Publishing

 Even angels have their demons

Jordan Reiss is well aware that if she was on fire the entire town of Oak Creek would probably go inside and make a sandwich. She can’t blame them. Her father scammed half the town out of their retirement funds, and then she…

She did so much worse.

She doesn’t expect forgiveness. But she’s back in town with no other options and just wants to be left alone to live on the fierce Wyoming land she’s missed so much during her six years in prison.

Former Navy SEAL Gabriel Collingwood's callsign may have been Angel, but he'll be anything but to protect his sister. Especially from a pretty ex-con who has somehow weaseled her way into a job at his sister’s new bakery.

He doesn't trust Jordan, even with her big gray eyes and quiet smile.

But when someone decides its time for Jordan to leave Oak Creek—preferably in a body bag—Gabe will have to put his distrust aside. Jordan needs her own guardian angel. And he happens to be one.

******
ANGEL is a stand-alone steamy romantic suspense, set in the LINEAR TACTICAL series. Meet the former military men of Linear Tactical, and the women who bring them to their knees: The strongest fall the hardest.

A "less-steamy" version of this book (same great story but with toned down language and sensual scenes) is available on Janie's website ~ If you like the heat level of Janie's Harlequin Intrigue books, you'll love the "less-steamy" version of the Linear Tactical series!


My opinion:
          A real rollecaster of feelings, once started you won't be able to stop until the last page.  The particularity of this book, if you read the precedent instalment in the series is that it takes place at the same time as book 3 for a big part of the series so you see events you already knew about but from another point of view and i really loved that. Thanks to that it can also be read as a stand alone.

Jordan really suffered and it was far from fair, she made mistakes and paid really an hard price for that but worse when outside most people are still shunning her or worse making her life even more difficult. She is a good, loyal girl so it wasn't easy to see her confronted to so many trouble at the same time.

Gabriel....he is a protective but stupid alpha, oh he sure can be smart in a lot of domain but in human female area he is deeply lacking....he hurts Jordan so man time  i'm not sure i could have forgiven him but Jordan does see his weakness under his all bad muscles appearance. The grumpy bear is in fact a teddy bear with a sweet heart. I did appreciate how Gabriel could recognize his errors and learn from them.

Since it's partly the same event than in book 3 that part of the intrigue was known to me since i've read but the the intrigue with Jordan was really well written and i couldn't wait to read more.

We do get to see the whole linear team and  i just want Dorian story even more now^^;; i need to discover the mysterious woman hunting him but still helping the team in her own way.

This is a fabulous story that i can only recommend with a lot of enthusiasm as a stand alone or read in order.

Motorhomes, Maps, & Murder ( A Camper & Criminals Cozy 5) by Tonya Kappes

Hello to all!!

          I really want to do better this year but i still to improve a little. Today i will share with you my opinion on the new Tonya Kappes'book which release today "Motorhomes, Maps, & Murder"...It's book 5 in a series and i admit i'm new to it so it was a try because i rarely start a series so far from the beginning; but i was happily surprised because you really don't need to have started the series before reading this instalment.

Oh now i will be sure to read precedent books but you can start with this one without hesitation.

now ....Happy Reading!

Description from goodreads :

 You don't want to miss out on book 5 of this hilarious and very popular cozy mystery series from USA Today Bestselling Author Tonya Kappes.

Welcome to Normal, Kentucky, where nothing is . . . NORMAL!

Mae West, owner of Happy Trails Campground, never thought she would become an actress like her namesake. Calling herself an actress might be far stretch as she plays a minor role in the local Civil War reenactment BATTLE AT CAMP WILDCAT.

When the reenactment doesn't go as planned, not one but two of the town's folks aren't playing dead. . .they were MURDERED!
Come to find out there was a prison break and the serial killer is believed to be in Normal and someone has stolen a motorhome from Happy Trails Campground.

Are these connected?

Mae lets boyfriend and hunky detective, Hank Sharp, follow all the leads about the murders and on the trail of the serial killer because she's got bigger s'mores in the fire.

The motorhome owners have filed a lawsuit and suing her for the deed to Happy Trails Campground. Mae has embraced Normal and there's nothing or no one going to take her campground. She's determined to find the motorhome and return it to the owners before she hands over any deed to anyone.

Mae just might find out that tapping into her namesake just might come in handy when coming face to face with a serial killer.




My opinion:
          Really great! Even if i haven't read (yet) the first 4books in this series i had to trouble to meet and come to enjoy Normal and its inhabitants. The southern charm is well present and the author is really talented to make us live it even if we are an ocean apart it's really great cozy mystery with action, wonderful characters, well written intrigue and just the southern charm touch we have come to really love.


Mae is courageous and i really appreciate her, we learn that she had difficulties which are stories in precedent books ( like a dead husband)  but it's not like we are missing something. We have the right dose of information and background to understand and appreciate her , i will be very happy to read  book 1 to 4 of course but i'm happy starting with this one.
Hank sound like the perfect knight, protective, funny and he cares for animals which is a big plus. i loved to see him with Mae and i'm curious of what will happen since it's looks like they still have a lot to learn about and from each other.

The rest of the team is simply wonderful as well so i can't really pick a favourite yet.

If you want a excellent cozy mystery set in the South , one that could work as stand alone but also offer you more this is the perfect one for you! You can jump into this one without having read any other in the series yet without regret.

Hunting Kobra (Projet Kobra 1) by Tracy Cooper Posey

Hello to all!


 Here we had several days of snow which sure helped to be in the mood for reading and i must say that i had the perfect book for that situation, but i will let you decide by yourself you still have a few days to preorder it if you want.

Happy Reading!

Publisher: Stories Rule Press
Publication: 2019
Genre: romantic suspense, thriller
Violence: strong
Language: normal
sex: mild, allusion to homosexuality
Public: 18+


Description from goodreads :

 No one is who they seem to be. No one at all…
When her lover and partner, Denis, dies in a random terrorist bombing, Quinn craves answers no one can give her.

An international businessman, Elijah Aslan, who says he once knew Denis well, seems to need the same answers. He alone understands Quinn’s pain.

Yet Aslan is not the simple businessman he appears to be. Flagged by the CIA, Aslan’s contact with Quinn sends up alarms and thrusts Quinn into the middle of an affair with unseen roots in Denis’ past, and with world-shaking consequences if Quinn doesn’t play her part perfectly…

This romantic thriller is the first book in the Project Kobra series.





My opinion:
          This is my favourite book from this author so far, really it's not good it's excellent! If you love thriller or romance suspense with a deep intrigue you must try this one. It's captivating and if you are very intuitive you could guess some elements but the author is talented to make you doubt it until the last second.


The characters are well built and have some deep scars even if those are not physical. Quinn loves music as much as her partner Denis....When he dies in a bombing she left alone with a lot of questions, she wants answers and justice but doesn't realize it until a old acquaintance of Denis, Aslan comes for answer as well...
However Aslan may be a international businessman....but for the CIA he could be much more and they want Quinn helps before she can decide what she is willing to do for answer she is trust in a world where any mistake could be fatal and she must find a strength she had forgotten.

Really this book was a page turner and a pure pleasure, it's a first book so we don't get all the answers yet but we discover really great characters and the ending is simply perfect to make us wait for more.

A fantastic book!

Werewolf's Surrogate by Mia Wolf

Hello to all !


A  new year has started and so far it's a busy one but good one...On the reading side it's also going well and no big disappointment so i'm an happy girl.
Today i'm sharing with you my opinion on a new release " Werewolf's Surrogate" by Mia Wolf.

Happy Reading!
Publisher: Amazon
Publication: 2019
Genre: paranormal romance
Violence: strong

Language: mild
sex: very steamy/strong
Source: earc

 Description from goodreads :

  What do you do when the heat is unbearable, but your heart isn’t ready?

Rex is the Alpha of Wolf Mountain and the biggest party animal in town. Being hit by his huge claws means being out of commission forever.

But Rex is in trouble. The Elders want him to have a family to secure the pack’s future. And Rex doesn’t want a mate. Luckily, a surrogate by the name of Felicity is the perfect solution.

She’s definitely not his type. And he definitely doesn’t feel completely awkward around her. Definitely not.

Felicity is out of money and has nowhere to go. So when she’s offered a large sum to carry someone’s baby, she says yes. The only drawback is that she has to stay at a mysterious manor with the baby’s father. Which is fine.

Except that the guy radiates arrogance and unfortunately looks like the cover model for a romance novel. His forearms are deliciously muscled and veiny and … Stop! She’s SO not going to drool over him.

But there are secrets at Rex’s manor. And Felicity isn’t safe here.

When an old rival takes everything away from him, can Rex’s primal instinct protect all he has left? With the baby growing in her, can Felicity deny her maternal instinct? And can Rex and Felicity stand the unbearable heat between them?

This story contains mature content and is intended for 18+ readers only



My opinion:
          It was a good read but i didn't  end up completely satisfied..... it's a bit hard to explain. We do get to learn of Felicity 's past which explain a lot why she accepts so quickly the idea of being a surrogate then i was a bit lost with secondary characters...we understand she was roommate with Mary who threw her out but that she has a friend named Angie, who is really kind and protective of her. Then when she speaks of what she could do later the friend name is Mary......to me it sounded completely strange i would have expected Angie or a friend we never heard of but same name as roommate...it may be a detail but it completely cut me from immersing completely in the story.

That put aside it's a really good story, it was fun to see Rex and Felicity start slowly to communicate and care about each other. They are both so different and at the same time have a lot in common.  Rex may be alpha but  he is an hurt alpha. The disappearance of his brother hurt him more than he can show and he closed on himself...seeing him with Felicity was sometimes seeing a teenager 'act  as Rex discover himself at the same time his relationship is developing.

Part of me fear trouble ahead with the boys not adjusting well in the end but for Felicity and Rex this story has an happy ending so i was happy.It was a good but quick read.

Skin Deep ( Laura Blackstone 1) by Mark Del Franco

Happy New Year!!!!    
I wish you all the best for 2019!!

End of 2018 was hard on me so i'm kind of glad to start a new year and hope for the best!

At least on the reading part it seems promising with the first book i picked from my pile " Skin Deep" by Mark Del Marco which was a new author  for me. I won't say it was an easy read so i'm glad i read it on my day off^^ but i would definitively want more now that i have a better insight on the complex world the author created.

So let's start this year with the first book in the Laura Blackstone serie: "Skin Deep"


Happy reading!!!
Publisher: Ace
Publication: 2009
ISBN:  0441017436
Genre: Urban fantasy, mystery, paranormal suspense
Violence: strong

Language: normal
sex: none
Public: 18+

Description from goodreads :

  A THRILLING NEW URBAN FANTASY SERIES FROM THE AUTHOR OF UNFALLEN DEAD AND UNQUIET DREAMS.

She'll need to keep up appearances—if she wants to stay alive...

Being an undercover agent has its occupational hazards, but Laura Blackstone makes it look easy. As a spy for a fey intelligence agency, she uses her magical abilities to create disguises that are skin deep glamours that must never be compromised. But when Laura's worlds collide she'll have more to worry about than retiring an identity; she may just lose her life.


My opinion:
          Hard beginning for sure as we get introduced to many characters right at the beginning, some being the same one in fact, so this can lead to some confusion
However, the more you read the more you get immersed as the mystery and intrigue are really well woven and you can't stop reading to discover what lies behind all the events.

The rhythm is perfect , there are dark moments but perfectly balanced with the touch of humour and little bit of flirting from Sinclair , Saffin is a secondary character we come to really love and Terryn is one i want to learn more about ( like how he met Cress for example). We learn a lot about several kinds of fae.

It's definitively a series i want to continue reading but one that must be read at moment when interruptions are not likely to happen.




Score:  5/5
