Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth

One of my favourite things as a reader is discovering new (to me) authors. Another is when a debut novel is so good it’s hard to believe it’s a debut. I got both with this book. Corey Curtis doesn’t fluster easily. She’s very good at her job as an Autopsy Services Coordinator at Jackson City … Continue reading Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth

Little Lies – Lila Bruce & Tia Rider Sorensen (narrator)

Wow, this book hits the ground running… When she goes to the bank to deposit money that morning, little does Lia know that the pretty woman she has noticed a few times lately at her favourite coffee place is there too. She doesn’t know either that she is going to get shot by bank robbers … Continue reading Little Lies – Lila Bruce & Tia Rider Sorensen (narrator)

Dust (Evan Reed Mysteries #1) – Ann McMan

With Galileo being released in a few days, I had to start at the beginning. Evan Reed is a "dust-buster", she helps political parties vet their potential candidates, i.e. find out all there is to know about them. She's very good at her job and doesn't care who she pisses off in the process. In … Continue reading Dust (Evan Reed Mysteries #1) – Ann McMan

Crash and Burn – Cynthia Dane & Hildred Billings & Laura Angell (narrator)

Yet another book I liked more than I thought I would when I began reading (or, rather, listening in this case). Jade grew up in Medford, Oregon, then joined the Air Force and is now starting a new job in Portland as a bodyguard. She knows who she is (100% lesbian) and is pretty earnest … Continue reading Crash and Burn – Cynthia Dane & Hildred Billings & Laura Angell (narrator)

A Hive of Secrets and Spells (Cupcakes and Sorcery #2) – Ellen Jane

I though I'd start with my review, so here it is. … Continue reading A Hive of Secrets and Spells (Cupcakes and Sorcery #2) – Ellen Jane

The Doll Maker: A Detective Sophie Whitton Story – Claire Highton-Stevenson & Fiona Thraille

Magic, Murder & Mistletoe (Cupcakes and Sorcery #1) – Ellen Jane

This is a sweet cozy mystery with witches and sorcerers and a side of romance. Heather is an adorable (and quite powerful) culinary witch, who helps people find missing objects. While on a job, she witnesses the murder of the Earl of Denbigh. Since a charm seems to have been used for the crime, she … Continue reading Magic, Murder & Mistletoe (Cupcakes and Sorcery #1) – Ellen Jane

For a Moment’s Indiscretion – KA Moll & Emily Beresford (narrator)

That was a tough one… I don’t like nasty characters, I don’t like when people are mean to others. Yet it’s interesting too to read books where not everything goes right, or ends well. The story begins as Zane and Jaina’s couple is struggling. Zane, a pastor, is convinced her wife Jaina, a social work … Continue reading For a Moment’s Indiscretion – KA Moll & Emily Beresford (narrator)
