Fatal Fudge Swirl: An Ice Cream Shop Mystery
I have a confession to make…I didn't read the two earlier books in this series before I downloaded this from NetGalley. However, while reading them may have given me some missing backstory, skipping them didn't hinder my enjoyment of this story at all.

The glitz and glam of Imperial Vienna comes to life in this decadent novel. Equal parts romance, humor, and mystery, this charming and sweet story kept me enthralled and reading past my bed time.
The Curse of Saints
I must be living under a rock because while so many others heard of this book from TikTok, I just came across it when browsing YA/NA Fantasy titles on NetGalley. It sounded intriguing to me and I had good feelings heading into the book.
The Stolen Throne (Dominions #2)
Wow. That's what I've got. Wow. No sophomore slump for this series. The Stolen Throne picks up where The Liar’s Crown leaves off, expanding the world and cast of characters we met in Book 1.
