Murder at Chateau sur Mer (A Gilded Newport Mystery) by Alyssa Maxwell

I've enjoyed reading this series of books and taking a glimpse into the gilded age. It really gives a taste of how they live on both sides of the wealth.  Emma gets to be a part of both worlds as a reporter and a distant relation to the Vanderbilts. Emma seems to have a knack to be in the "right" place at the "right" time and has to unravel more than one mystery.  A great read and it really makes you feel like you are a part of the story. 

A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden

I really enjoy this author and how she ties historical events with her stories.  In A Dangerous Legacy, Lucy does a great job of getting the news out, but soon finds herself with competition.  I liked how at first she had a bit of a completion with the newcomer, but soon finds herself working with him when things get out of hand.
    A great read and I look forward to more in the series.

That Last Weekend by Laura DiSilverio

A story of friendship and justice that will keep you reading.  A group of friends are getting together again after ten years trying to put the past behind them, but soon tragedy strikes again.  Laurel feels like she needs to uncover what is happening before it is too late, but is also fearful of just what exactly she will uncover.  The friends agree to uncovering the truth, but since most likely one of them is the one responsible, it makes it harder and harder to know who to trust and who to fear.

Another Wish by Annie Dobbs

I enjoyed reading this new series and enjoyed seeing how Haley and Mike were first kinda working against each other as they were not sure who exactly was causing what and then realized that they needed to work together to make things smooth for the wedding that they are a part of.   I liked Firefly Inn, its location and of course the cat (love books with cats in therm).  Looking forward to more in this series and to see what happens at the Inn next.

God gave us Family by Lisa Tawn Bergren (Author), David Hohn (Illustrator)

I love this series.  The pictures are so great and the story line is wonderful.  This book talks about all the different kinds of families and makes it a great read for a group as many will not have the same type of family.  It makes them all feel included and a part of the story.  I look forward to more of these books.

Blooper Freak (The Worst Detective Ever Book 5) by Christy Barritt

Poor Joey, just when she thinks that things are going to be normal, her friend is accused of murder.  She realizes that she needs to do what she can to help him, but it might come at a cost with her boyfriend as he does not want her to get involved.  As Joey bumbles on, she finds herself involved in more than she bargained for.  I really enjoy seeing how Joey manages to keep finding herself involved in things as she tries to stay out of it, but instead just finds herself deeper and deeper involved.

Rescued Hearts by Hope Toler Dougherty

Anytime I see a cat on the cover, I have to read the book description to find out what it is all about.  The cover of this book drew me in, but the writing kept me there.  I really enjoyed reading this book and the dilemmas that the characters found themselves in.
     Mary Wade can't help herself when she spots a helpless kitten, but she had not idea what would happen next.  She soon finds herself in a situation where she herself needs rescuing.  A great read, that keeps you reading to find out what will happen next,
