Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers
What a fun listen! The narration was great. I absolutely adored Vera and I think everyone should have a Vera in their life.
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.
Hotel of Secrets
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 Angel Maker
I was so excited to have been approved to read this book, one of, if not THE most-anticipated thrillers of 2023. I really liked The Whisper Man and The Shadows was decent, and this book has the same sinister quality as those.
What Have We Done
One of the years most anticipated thrillers of the year is the latest from Alex Finlay, author of Night Shift and Every Last Year.
Of Manners and Murder
Well, now, that was just delightful! It's like a murder in Bridgerton being solved by Enola Holmes...fancy dinners, beautiful people, and murder.
I really wanted to like this book, but ultimately, it fell short of the mark for me. The author did a few things very well. However, this book was just not for me.

The Kingdoms of Savannah
While some are calling this a romance, I would say that it is almost more of a coming of age story - even though our main character is in her 30s. It's about finding yourself, being comfortable in your own skin, and learning to stand on your own two feet. It's about relationships, understanding, and forgiveness. All that plus the beautiful Italian setting, this is definitely a perfect summer read.
The story kept me guessing right up until the reveal at the end, but I was disappointed and let down by the twist and the killer's motivations. It was mentioned in the book how the killer was almost theatrically going for the shock factor with the murders and the way the bodies were positioned. Seems to me that maybe the author was doing the same thing, but it just didn't hold water for me.
