Dead and Breakfast by Kate Kingsbury

I really enjoyed reading about Liza and Melanie and the adventures they faced trying to open their B&B.  I can imagine that what they expected and what they found were very different things.  I imagine that choosing something that took a lot of work, but had a great backstory sounded like a great idea, that is until the skeleton and later on dead body showed up.
    I really enjoyed seeing what all happened next and how it all came together.  I am not sure if I could take on what they did and continue after what they ran into, but that is part of what made it a great read.
    I received a copy of this book from the author, the review is entirely my own.

The Tunnels by Greg Mitchell

I enjoyed reading this book as it gave me a different perspective on life in Berlin and getting to hear it as a story instead of just something in the history book.  It was interesting to read the stories of those involved in the events of the tunnel as well as what was going on above ground as well.  I hadn’t really thought of how much it affected those involved until reading this book.

A Fatal Twist by Tracy Weber

I have greatly enjoyed this series and following the antics of Bella and Kate and this book did not disappoint.  I love seeing how Kate interacts with Bella and in this story there are two foster puppies as well.  Bella like many older dogs does not like this intrusion into her home and reading about the situations they find themselves in is quite entertaining.
     Also there is the little situation of murder going on.  Kate has agreed to be a doula for her friend and one of the doctors turns up dead.  Kate works to figure out what happened and finds out all kinds of things about the doctor that makes it difficult to narrow the suspects down to one all while taking care of the dogs and working at her yoga studio.
     A great read and recommended to anyone who likes a good cozy mystery.

Never Forget by Jody Hedlund

A wonderful conclusion to the Beacons of Hope series.  I have enjoyed learning about the lighthouse keepers and what they had to go through to keep the lanterns going.  I especially learning about how often times it was the women that did the job even though they were not thought to be "able" to do it.
     Abbie has been doing her best to be able to continue living on Rose Island and keeping the light so that her grandfather can stay on the island as well.  She has even gotten married so that her husband can be considered the keeper since her grandfather can no longer do the job as he could before.  Abbie's husband is not quite up to the job, so when a man washes up on shore and cannot remember who he is, she lets him believe that he is supposed to be there and passes him off as her husband.
     I enjoyed seeing the growing relationship between Abbie and Nathaniel and how even though things didn't always work out in the timing they wanted, they managed to do…
