Lady of a Thousand Treasures by Sandra Byrd

Eleanor has a big task ahead of her.  She has been working with her father and uncle evaluating artifacts and working with family collections to decide what to sell, keep, or donate.  When her father dies and her uncle can no longer carry out the daily activities of the business, Eleanor has to do what she can in an era when she cannot do the job alone. 
     Eleanor has to work at making the best decisions to keep her family business running.  She has to make the best decisions for the clients as well as her family and deciding what to do with a long time client's collection may be a make or break decision.  I felt for her as she had to decide what was best all around.
     I received a copy of the book to review, the review is my own.


Taken in Texas by Susan Sleeman

A suspenseful read where Kendall is determined to do her job no matter what the consequences.  She is willing to try everything to find the kidnappers even if it means teaming up with Cord.  A great mystery that will have you guessing and hoping you are right.
     I received a copy of the book from the author, the review is my own.



Premeditated Peppermint (An Amish Candy Shop Mystery Book 3) by Amanda Flower

I really enjoy this series and seeing the new candies that Bailey comes up with and how she works around some of the Amish rules and still manages to make great candy.  She finds herself trying to work around making her candies and her ex coming to town wanting to film at her shop.  She does not want him there and when a murder occurs, she has to figure out a way to solve it and find out the truth about what and why the murder happened.
     Great series and can't wait to see what Bailey will get into next.



Goodbye Cruller World (A Deputy Donut Mystery Book 2) by Ginger Bolton

I liked seeing how Emily came up with a great way to showcase her donuts at a wedding and how she went to work to see who sabotaged her donuts and tried to put her shop in a bad light.  I like how Emily was able to think through what had happened and to figure out what had really happened .  I enjoy this series and look forward to the next book.


Edge of Peril (Fog Lake Mysteries Book 1) by Christy Barritt

Harper finds herself at Fog Lake thinking that she is there at the request of an old friend.  She soon finds that events there could be related to someone she knows and wants to do what she can to try and stop what is going on there.
     I found myself really caught up in this book as Harper tried to find out what was going on and tried to stay alive at the same time.

Delayed justice by Cara Putman

In book three of this series, Jamie finds herself with a new work path.  As she has finally decided to step up to a wrong in her past, she finds herself with more backlash and peril than expected.  She also finds herself in a new role as she helps out a young child and works with a neighbor and his therapy dog in helping the child.
     I really liked seeing Jamie work through all that was going on and learning how to do what is best for others even when it doesn't work out the best for her.

The Cost of Betrayal: Three Romantic Suspense Novellas by Dee Henderson , Dani Pettrey , Lynette Eason

I enjoyed this set of novellas and each story was very suspenseful and lived up to what I would expect from each author. 

In Betrayed a woman is freed from jail due to the actions of two people she did not know.  An object found at an auction set it all in motion and to ensure that the real culprit did not come after her, the two people help her to find a safe place to stay while they find the real killer.

In Deadly Isle, what starts out as frequent race between cousins turns deadly and it is up to Teni to find out what really happened.  As she investigates, she has to be careful as things are not always what they seem.

In Code of Ethics , Ruthie finds herself helping someone far beyond her doctoring skills.  When it seems there is more to her patient than meets the eye, she helps him to find out what really happened and has to work on keeping them both safe.
