Off Script by L.L. Bartlett

I enjoyed reading this story and seeing how their thought process worked in solving the mystery.  It was a quick read so it can be started and finished in one reading which is nice as you don't have to wait quite as long to see what has happened.  I liked how the characters were able to see past what seems the correct train of thought to get down to what is really going on.
     I received a copy of the story from the author, the review is my own.


The Promise of Dawn (Under Northern Skies Book #1) by Lauraine Snelling

Signe and her family take a chance by joining their family in Minnesota and find things there very different than they expected.  I really liked Signe and how she was able to be strong and speak up for her family when things were not quite as expected.  I don't know how she was able to put up with what she did from her relatives. I don't think that I would have had her patience and would have probably told someone off in not so nice a way.
    The only thing I did not like about this book is that it ended and I have to wait to see how their lives progress.

Body on Baker Street: A Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery by Vicki Delany

Another great installment of A Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery.  Poor Gemma is just trying to have a book signing with a (cranky) author, when all of a sudden she is dead, right there in the store.  Now Gemma has to put her sleuthing to use to decide who is responsible and why.  It becomes more personal when someone she knows becomes a suspect.
     I like the process Gemma goes through in coming up with suspects and motives.  She also gets to work some with the police in this endeavor, although, they are not always happy about it.
    I look forward to more in this series.  I received a copy from the publisher, the review is my own.



The Return by Suzanne Woods Fisher

A wonderful read that gives great insight into the time period and what it was like to live during this time dealing with the harshness of living conditions, paired with the fear of the Indians.  Betsy gets a very new perspective on things when she is taken captive during a raid.  She is shown a different type of faith and love and turns more to God.

Chasing Secrets (Elite Guardians Book #4) by Lynette Eason

I have really enjoyed this series about a group of bodyguards and how they do all they can to protect those in their charge.  I like how they go the extra mile even when their own lives wind up in danger.  The danger that Haley finds herself in is tied to an old case, but even so the danger is real and relevant.  The detective in charge, Steven steps in to help protect Haley and her client.
     I enjoyed seeing peeks of the past as they worked together to find out who was behind everything and persevered throughout all that was thrown at them.  A real page turner.

Witch Chocolate Bites (BEWITCHED BY CHOCOLATE Mysteries ~ Book 4) by HY Hanna

A fun read that is quite enjoyable.  Caitlyn is still trying to figure out this entire witch thing and has to pair it with helping her uncle out of trouble and and a new love interest.  I really enjoy seeing how she juggles everything and the seeing what her cat Nibs is up to as well.  It is fun seeing how she deals when things don't quite go as planned and of course there is all the mentions of yummy chocolate as well.
