Stirring up trouble in New Orleans …

Eager to shake up her drinks and her life, mixologist Pepper Revelle jumps at an invitation to join the elite Bohemia Bartenders. Leader Neil thinks she’ll be the perfect advance gal for his team at a colorful cocktail convention in her hometown of New Orleans, but the job turns out to be more bananas than a drunk monkey. Setting up the key tasting for their distiller client, she and Neil discover their whiskey has gone dangerously bad. But how? And was this shocking poisoning more than an accident?

As Pepper and Neil try to figure out what happened, keep the drinks flowing and help distiller Dash Reynolds survive the weekend, they find themselves the target of increasingly scary attacks. Maybe it’s the danger, or maybe it’s the drinks, but Pepper also can’t help an inconvenient attraction to cocktail nerd Neil as they stir up trouble and try to figure out who’s out to get them — before they’re sliced and squeezed like a lemon twist in a Sazerac.

Risky Whiskey is the first book in the Bohemia Bartenders Mysteries, funny whodunits with a dash of romance set in a convivial collective of cocktail lovers, eccentrics and mixologists. These cozy culinary comedies contain a hint of heat, a splash of cursing and shots of laughter, served over hand-carved ice.

Quiche of Death (A Sugar & Spice Mystery)
by Mary Lee Ashford

The dynamics of the characters and the mystery are entertaining. I also like learning about the process of putting a cookbook together.
~Baroness’ Book Trove

This author is brilliant at leading you into one direction while she’s finding two or three more other wrong turns to send you down. Seriously, bring your GPS!
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews



When editor Sugar Calloway and baker Dixie Spicer went into business creating cookbooks, they found a sideline as amateur sleuths. Now a bitter family grudge could leave a fatal aftertaste…

At Sugar & Spice Community Cookbooks, the friends and business partners have secured a tasty new commission: producing a cookbook for the Arbor family. The Arbors have made their fortune in quiches, and Sugar and Spice have been invited to a weekend gathering where all the siblings, along with crusty matriarch Marta, will be in attendance. But it’s soon clear that this trip will come with a hefty slice of drama.

Theo, the only grandson, arrives with his flaky fiancée, Collette, who quickly stirs up trouble . . . and is found dead the next day. As the investigation unfolds, secrets—and recipes—are shared, and Sugar and Spice realize just how messy and murderous the situation may be. As another family member falls ill, can they solve the case without getting egg on their faces . . .and a target on their backs?

* Includes delicious recipes! *


“Quiche me, you fool.”

The demand was followed by hoots of laughter as the sister—Jezzie, I think her name was—leaned into her spouse for a smooch. He hesitated but obliged.

I smiled at the boisterous group who clearly shared some inside joke about quiche and kissing. The warmth of the table and the sibling love melted my heart like butter on a biscuit. Taking a sip of water, I glanced over at Dixie, who sat across from me at the huge oak table.

She rolled her eyes.

“What?” I mouthed.

Dixie shrugged. Jezzie had perhaps a teensy bit too much wine, but still: When did my best friend and business partner get so darn stuffy? Maybe it was the inside-joke part that she found off-putting.

But we did know quiche was the family’s stock-in-trade, so it wasn’t that much of a stretch to figure out the expression had something to do with the Arbor family’s food business. After all, that was why we were here.

The Witch Way Collection: Volume 2 by [Jane Hinchey]Books 4 – 6 in the Witch Way Series

Supernaturals and humans have always lived in harmony in Whitefall Cove…until now.

Continue amateur sleuth Harper Jones’ adventures as she sets about solving the mysteries that befall Whitefall Cove in books 4-6.

If you love witchy sleuths with a knack for finding out whodunit, then you don’t want to miss this bestselling series and your chance to binge read the next three books in this special boxed collection!


Finding a body washed ashore in Whitefall Cove was not how I wanted to start my day. I much preferred to face the morning with a hot strong caffeinated beverage, but alas, we can’t always have what we want. Out on a morning stroll with my familiar, Archie, I couldn’t believe my bad luck when we stumbled upon the body of local teenager Emily Sherman washed up on the beach.


A Druid, a Sorceress, and a Demon Hunter walk into a bar … sounds like the start of a joke, right? Only it’s no joke. Whitefall Cove is over-run with otherworld creatures and this trio is our only hope. With townsfolk possessed and goblins running amok, the last thing we need is a murder, but someone is out for blood, and I fear it’s mine. Llewellyn the demon hunter is convinced I’m some powerful witch that needs protecting, and as more and more bizarre occurrences pile up, I’m starting to think he might be right.


Tiny the giant fairy is intent on making life difficult for the residents of Whitefall Cove. But what happens when the cranky mechanic turns up dead in her garage? Tiny and I have something in common. We share a birthday. So when a mysterious gift turns up on my doorstep that could have had me joining Tiny in the ever-after, I’m immediately suspicious. Add to that Tiny’s death was staged to look like an accident and I’m convinced foul play was involved.


“I fell in love with the characters from the first page of WITCH WAY TO MURDER & MAYHEM. Gran! I wish I had a gran like her. I didn’t figure out who the culprit was until the author wanted me to. I couldn’t put this book down, it has all the elements you’d expect with extras that fit seamlessly into the genre. Cannot wait for more in the series!” Angie, Amazon Reviewer

“I loved the characters in WITCH WAY TO MURDER & MAYHEM so much! Harper Jones comes home to Whitefall Cove after losing her magic, fiance and job. While home living with Gran, who by the way is a hoot! Harper decides to buy The Dusty Attic Book store. This is when the Mystery begins! A murder and a whole bunch of suspects and one very hot detective! I highly recommend this book!” ~ Donna

“WITCH WAY TO MURDER & MAYHEM is a great book! I had so much fun reading this! Gran is a hoot, I want to be like her!! Harper is amazing, even after going through such a horrible break up with a cheating McDouche, as Gran calls him, and losing her magic, she still pulls herself up and comes out ahead of it all. Such a great inspiration. I can’t wait until the next book comes out to see what happens!”  ~ Jodi

“WITCH WAY TO MURDER & MAYHEM  – Gran had me rolling on the floor with belly laughs; I love that clotheshorse hussy. This is not your typical cozy murder mystery; there’s actually interesting storylines, funny dialog, an interesting variety of characters, almost all likable. This clean story moves at a fast pace and there’s plenty of intrigue.”  ~ Texas  (Amazon)

June 1900: Eliza Thomson is back in Moreton after nearly thirty years away. Her best friend Connie is eager to introduce her to the villagers, but their excitement vanishes when they bump into the ill-tempered Mrs Milwood.

Days later, when Mrs Milwood is found dead, the evidence confirms she was murdered … and there are no shortage of suspects.

With the finger of suspicion pointing at a childhood friend, Eliza is keen to clear her name. But an inspector from New Scotland Yard has other ideas. He won’t have her interfering with the investigation.

Determined to prove that the death was murder, Eliza enlists the help of husband Archie, and best friend Connie. But it soon becomes apparent that not everyone wants to see justice done.

August 1901: Oak House was once Eliza’s home but revisiting the place had never occurred to her … until the invitation to the party arrived.

Being told to stay in the garden wasn’t going to stop Eliza and Connie from finding their way indoors. But when the master of the house is found with a bullet wound in his head, they have questions to answer…

The victim’s family have their own ideas about the murder. But who had the most to gain from Mr Hartley’s death?

In a world where secrets and lies are the norm, someone is playing games. Unfortunately for them, they haven’t bargained on Eliza’s past.

London is known for its bustle and intrigues, but the sedate English countryside can host—or hide—any number of secrets. Frances, the widowed Countess of Harleigh, needs a venue for her sister Lily’s imminent wedding, away from prying eyes. Risings, George Hazleton’s family estate in Hampshire, is a perfect choice, and soon Frances, her beloved George, and other guests have gathered to enjoy the usual country pursuits—shooting, horse riding, and romantic interludes in secluded gardens.

But the bucolic setting harbors a menace, and it’s not simply the arrival of Frances’s socially ambitious mother. Above and below stairs, mysterious accidents befall guests and staff alike. Before long, Frances suspects these “accidents” are deliberate, and fears that the intended victim is Lily’s fiancé, Leo. Frances’s mother is unimpressed by Lily’s groom-to-be and would much prefer that Lily find an aristocratic husband, just as Frances did. But now that Frances has found happiness with George—a man who loves her for much more than her dowry—she heartily approves of Lily’s choice. If she can just keep the couple safe from villains and meddling mamas.

As Frances and George search for the culprit among the assembled family, friends, and servants, more victims fall prey to the mayhem. Mishaps become full-blooded murder, and it seems that no one is safe. And unless Frances can quickly flush out the culprit, the peal of wedding bells may give way to another funeral toll. . . .  (Amazon)

Tonya Kappes
5 Stars

A Charming Deception: :A Cozy Paranormal Mystery (A Magical Cures Mystery Series book 13) by [Tonya Kappes]Synopsis:

Welcome to Whispering Fall where magic and mystery collide!

Bubble… Bubble…

June Heal and Oscar Park are beyond thrilled with the upcoming arrival of their baby.

Cures and Trouble…

June’s pregnancy is turning out to more at risk than anticipated and she has to go to a specialist doctor outside of Whispering Falls where patients are nosey and hormones are raging, leaving the nurses and receptionist at their wits ends and bickering at each other.

Magic Stirs…

Poor June is put on limited activity. The baby is proving to a little mischievous and magic before it’s even born and leaving the doctors a little miffed with all the different ultrasound shenanigans.

Trouble Doubles…

June’s hormones have messed with her intuition and spiritual gifts, leaving her unsure of things going on around her.On one of her many doctor appointments, June arrives a little early and find the receptionist strangled to death.June can’t help herself and decides to put her amateur and magical sleuthing skills to the test to try to bring the killer to justice… or are her hormones deceiving her? (Goodreads)


The characters are well developed and well rounded. June is about to give birth and everyone is very excited. Her friends are arguing about who is going to babysit the infant, Her husband wants her protected inside a bubble, and June just wants to meet the child. When someone is found murdered, she knows she needs to help find the killer before the big day arrives.

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is a quick easy read. The mystery was well plotted and there were enough suspects to consider and clues to sift through and not easily solved.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. The magical moments in this book add another layer to this book, and I greatly enjoyed it.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.

A local election for district court judge turns deadly when one of the candidates winds up shot in his own home. Now it’s up to amateur sleuth Kat Harper to find out “whodunit.”

When it comes to drug offenses, Judge Buck Metzger is a known advocate for rehabilitation over incarceration. His stance is a major reason why he’s pulled ahead in the small-town race—until a bullet stops him dead. Now Kat has to question whether his outlook—or someone he sentenced to court-ordered treatment—might be responsible for his downfall. Then again, he could just as easily have been murdered by a resentful opponent caught up in a devastating scandal. And Kat certainly can’t discount Judge Metzger’s rebellious daughter as a suspect, not when she’s set to inherit everything her father owned.

Whatever it takes, Kat is determined to uncover the truth. And with some help from her furry feline friends, she might just thwart a killer’s plan to skirt the wheels of justice.

An aggressive real estate developer, Jack Ford, is pushing hard to rezone nearby land, with an eye toward building a sprawling golf resort, which would drive Rose and Lily out of business.

Tempers are already steaming, but things really get sticky when Ford is found dead at the foot of Rose’s property and the police think she had something to do with his dramatic demise. Lily can’t let her grandmother get burned by a false murder charge. So she starts her own investigation and discovers Ford’s been brewing bad blood all over town, from his jilted lover to his trophy wife to his shady business partners. Now, it’s down to Lily to stir up some clues, sift through the suspects, and uncover the real killer before Rose is left holding the tea bag.  (Amazon)

With Chicago winters in the rearview mirror, Chloe Jackson is making good on a promise: help her late friend’s grandmother run the Sea Glass Saloon in the Florida Panhandle. To Chloe’s surprise, feisty Vivi Slidell isn’t the frail retiree Chloe expects. Nor is Emerald Cove. It’s less a sleepy fishing village than a panhandle hotspot overrun with land developers and tourists. But it’s a Sea Glass regular who’s mysteriously crossed the cranky Vivi. When their bitter argument comes to a head and he’s found dead behind the bar, guess who’s the number one suspect?

In trying to clear Vivi’s name, Chloe discovers the old woman isn’t the only one in Emerald Cove with secrets. Under the laidback attitude, sparkling white beaches, and small town ways something terrible is brewing. And the sure way a killer can keep those secrets bottled up is to finish off one murder with a double shot: aimed at Chloe and Vivi.

Piece by Piece by [Laura Bradford]A grieving mother learns to heal in Amish country, in this heartfelt, beautifully told novel from national bestselling author Laura Bradford.

Danielle Parker is a gold-medal mom—the kind who volunteers in her children’s classrooms, shuttles them between activities, throws legendary birthday parties, and has a remedy on hand for any emergency. Whatever her husband, Jeff, and their children need, Dani is there, always.
Except for one day.

On that day—the day that Dani reluctantly takes some “me time” while her mom and Jeff drive the children to the park—the unthinkable happens. The car crash leaves no survivors. Somehow, Dani gets through the funerals and visits, accepting neighbors’ sympathy and dropped-off meals. All the while, guilt and grief make her wish the accident had claimed her life too. Then a call comes from Lydia Schlabach, an Amish woman Dani befriended in childhood. In addition to condolences, Lydia offers Dani something more: a place to escape to.

In Pennsylvania’s Amish country, Dani’s days take on a new rhythm, marked by the clip-clop of buggies and the bustle of chores. Lydia gives Dani space to mourn, to think, and to realize how long it’s been since she felt like a person in her own right. And with the help of friendships old and new, Dani learns about the ways life continues to surprise us—even after the deepest loss—with joy, love, and second chances. . . .

by Jennifer S. Alderson

Excellent character development, a murder mystery that keeps one guessing and a free (virtual) trip to Amsterdam make Death by Windmill a must-read book of this year.
~The Book Decoder

Since I love to travel the world, I especially love these tour guide mysteries. Alderson writes the perfect amount of location details that make readers believe he/she is right there, in a museum, having High Tea, or dodging a killer through gigantic turning windmills. I give this book FIVE stars.
~Here’s How It Happened

Ms. Alderson’s character development is top-notch. The recurring characters grow book to book and all the characters continue to evolve within the pages of this story. The mystery she has created for them is excellent as well.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

Death by Windmill is an action-packed jaunt through Amsterdam and the surrounding Dutch countryside … The descriptions of the location and its landmarks are so authentically rich in detail that you feel you are experiencing the tour first-hand.

The tour begins on a high note when the majority of guests bond during their visit to the Keukenhof flower gardens and a cruise around the picturesque canals of Amsterdam.

Despite her initial reservations, Lana thinks this might be the best group she had ever led. Until she discovers one of her guests—a recent retiree named Priscilla—is the person who destroyed her career in journalism.

All Lana can see is red. But circumstances dictate that she figure out a way to lead the tour, make peace with her mother, and not murder her guest. She doesn’t know whether she can handle the pressure.

Lana needn’t worry. Shortly after their fight, Priscilla falls off the balcony of a historic windmill at Zaanse Schans. Was she pushed or simply careless? The investigating officers suspect murder—and topping their suspect list is Lana’s mom!

Can Lana save Gillian? Or will her mother end up spending the rest of her days in a Dutch prison?

Spotlight–Poisoned Primrose

Today on my blog I have a Spotlight for Poisoned Primrose by author Dahlia Donovan.  Hope you enjoy reading about the book, and then I hope you enjoy reading the book!


  • Title and author: Poisoned Primrose by Dahlia Donovan
  • Series or standalone: Series – Book 1 of Motts Cold Case Mystery Series 
  • Publisher/release date: Tangled Tree Publishing – 07/25/2020
  • Cover Artist: Claire Smith
  • Genre: Cosy Mystery 
  • Length: 50k


Meet Motts and the quirky cast of characters in her world. Poisoned Primrose is a quintessential cosy British mystery and an all-round fun story to throw yourself into.

Autistic, asexual, and almost forty, Pineapple “Motts” Mottley flees London with her cat and turtle to a quaint cottage in Cornwall. She craves the peace of life in a small village. The dead body buried in her garden isn’t quite what she had in mind, though.

Unable to resist her curiosity, she falls directly into a mess of trouble and runs head-first into the attractive detective inspector, Teo Herceg. She tries to balance her business with the investigation, but as the killer focuses on her, staying alive becomes trickier than advanced origami.

Will Motts survive the onslaught of murderously bad luck?

Can she solve the mystery before it all spins out of control and off a cliff?
