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.

Searching for You (Orphan Train Book #3) by Jody Hedlund

Searching for You is the third book in the Orphan Train Series.  While it helps to have read the first two, it is not necessary. 
     Sophie finds herself running again and trying to take care of herself and two children that she thinks of as her own.  She joins a train going west and finds her plans changed as she travels away from the city and the life she has there.
     I was glad to find out more of what has happens with the characters in the book and seeing how they have to work at what is best for what everyone and not just for what they want.
     I received a copy of the book from the author/publisher, the review is my own.

Tandem Demise: A Cycle Path Mystery Duffy Brown

Tandem Demise is a great mystery.  I loved the setting and solving the mystery on an island.  It made for some interesting scenes as Evie tries to help Nate keep out of the hands of some guys who think he did something he didn't do.  She has to do this in addition to dealing with smugglers and a rogue wedding planner.
      I received a copy from the author, the review is mine.

A Scandal in Scarlet: A Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery by Vicki Delany

I have really enjoyed reading this series since it first came out and was delighted in a chance to read this next book.  I think it would be neat to own the bookstore tea shop combination that Gemma does.  I love seeing how she goes about trying to figure out what is going on even though her boyfriend Ryan tries to keep her out of things.  This time Gemma has to try to find out who murdered someone during an auction to help rebuild the West London Museum and with a nearby shopkeeper the main suspect, she finds herself right in the middle of things again.
     I can't wait to see what Gemma, Jayne, and of course Violet and Moriarty get into next.

I received a copy of the book from the author, the review is entirely my own.

Lethal Target by Janice Cantore

Lethal Target is book two in the Line of Duty series.  Tess thinks that she has things under control in Rogue Hollow, but soon finds out differently.  A death involving an eighteen year old may be a overdose, or it might be a part of something bigger.  She finds herself looking into a new drug supplier in town and trying to convince the citizens of the town that she has everything under control. 
      I liked seeing more of the characters in this series.  Tess has to figure out who to turn to and still hasn't quite gotten over a few things in the past to really be able to work with Pastor Oliver to talk things out.  I can understand where she gets her reluctance from and liked seeing how she worked through the process.
     I received this book from the publisher, the review is my own.
