Review of A Deadly Inside Scoop

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Win has reopened her grandparent’s ice cream shop and she is looking forward to having a thriving business.  But sadly that does not work out as she planned because a man has been found murdered.  With the help of her friends Maisie and Riya, they have to figure out who the killer is so she can get back to selling her ice cream.

The author is very talented in her descriptive  writing and these descriptions pulled me into the book from the beginning.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The mystery was well plotted and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  I look forward to seeing what Win’s next adventure is.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.

Review of Uneasy Prey

On the way to the emergency room, an elderly woman regains consciousness long enough to inform paramedic Zoe Chambers that her fall down the basement steps was no accident. Before she can say more, she succumbs to her injuries, launching Zoe and Police Chief Pete Adams into the investigation of a burglary ring targeting the area’s vulnerable senior citizens.

Zoe—in spite of Pete’s objections—takes it upon herself to act as protection detail after the con men, disguised as water company employees, set their sights on Zoe’s beloved former landlady. It’s a decision that eventually puts Zoe in harm’s way.

With Zoe already recovering from one close call, Pete must race against time to stop the crime ring—and a dangerous killer—before they strike again.
