So, I have the honor of closing out the week by relistening to favorites.  If you have been here a while, you know I have a fairly long commute to and from work and I utilize that time by listening to Audio books.

My TBR for the week should be up fairly soon but this post should have been up two days ago!

Either way, let me know if you are participating and what your TBR looks like!

We are all so excited!

Sugar and Iced by: Jenn McKinlay

Sugar and Iced

This is my favorite cozy mystery series.  I was so excited to buy the series for my collection and I was in the mood to continue where I left off.  In this book, Mel and Angie are working with a beauty pageant to help promote their business and to support one of their close friends.  Of course, it isn’t as easy as that.  When one of the pageant’s own turns up murdered, all eyes turn to the outsiders as suspects.

I think these books are fun and I would recommend them to anyone.  This is a great series and even though this is the 6th book, the story lines do not get old.

I gave this book 5 crowns.

Brew or Die A Java Jive Mystery by: Caroline Fardig

Brew or Die Publication Date: April 25, 2017

Description from the publishers through Netgalley

The Case of the Hound that Didn’t Stay by: Georgann Prochaska

the-case-of-the-hound-that-didnt-stay

About the book:

Is Dingle Grove as clean-scrubbed as people believe?

Female sleuths, Alice and Lena are once again snooping into lives, this time joined by Audrey the bloodhound. An elderly man of the Midwest town of Dingle Grove disappears, and the hound finds him digging in an open field, weeping. As Alice signals her dog it’s time to leave, Audrey lies down nearby, her jaw flat against the earth. Alice recognizes the expression in her dog’s eyes, the sad look more intense than the one Audrey reserves for dead squirrels and night crawlers. Unsure of her dog’s ability to find a cadaver, Alice questions whether she should alert the police to her suspicions. Will her report create needless trouble for the old man with dementia? Residents help Alice unravel the buried secrets involving an obsession with outlaws and gangsters.

My Review:

This is the second book in the Snoopypuss Mystery series.  I have not read the first one but was asked to read and review this in exchange for an honest review.  I was glad that I was able to get right into the story without feeling lost since not having the first installment.  This was a cutesy mystery book without the gruesomeness.  In my mind, I would classify this as a cozy mystery and I like that.  If the author had included a few recipes from some of the characters, she would be able to market it as a Cozy mystery.

Alice and her bloodhood Audrey are extremely loveable and sincere.  Lena is the funky sidekick that we all can’t live without.  The story flows nicely and it wraps itself up in the end without leaving any questions behind.  It was a fun read.

I gave it 4 crowns.
