The Searcher by Christopher Morgan Jones (review)

The Searcher by Christopher Morgan Jones (review)

I stopped reading this book on page 213.   I haven’t read anything by this author before, but once I got past the confusing first part of the book the pages sped by. The very beginning is a little confusing because the main character keeps flashing between present time, and something that happened in the past. It later turns out that past was only a few days at the most, previous to the main part of the book. But while we were jumping back and forth, it was hard to tell what was supposed to be the ‘current’ time. I… Read more »

Murder at Whitehall (Elizabethan Mysteries #4) by Amanda Carmack (review)

I haven’t read any of the other books in this series. But I also didn’t have to have read them to understand what was happening in this book.

Sweet Masterpiece (Samantha Sweet Mysteries #1) by Connie Shelton (review)

This is a quick read. The storyline is interesting, I like how the box ties into things. And Sam manages to figure out how to use the magic of the box fairly quickly, without letting herself depend on it too heavily. The information we learn about the painter is sad, but also a little sweet at the end bits. There is a lot of mention about Sam’s dream to own a bakery, and how she makes the cakes and other things for her customers. I didn’t mind this as it gave her more of a personality, but if you’re looking… Read more »
