Set on Widow’s Island off the Pacific Northwest. Close to the Bone by Kendra Elliot is the first of four scheduled novellas. Each book contains a murder-mystery and there is an overall arc about a missing person from twenty years ago. From the characters to the island history I quickly slipped into this series.
I am trying to read free books I download for my Kindle. (I know crazy concept right?) Marigolds and Murder by London Lovett is the first in the Port Danby cozy-mystery series. Our protagonist is opening a flower shop in the small coastal town of Port Danby and I loved Lacey ‘Pink’ Pinkerton and her unusual pet Kingston and tabby named Nevermore.
Lucky Witch is the fifth novel in the Beechwood Harbor Magic Mystery series by Danielle Garrett. Once I again I grabbed my headphones to listen to Amanda Ronconi, bring these characters and small-town to life.
The Way of the Flesh is a brilliant, atmospheric, historical, crime fiction novel that had me completely enthralled. The story is rich in the history of medical advancements and butchery performed during this period; particularly those surrounding the development of anaesthesia.
I am continuing my journey with the Dresden Files and recently devoured Summer Knight by Jim Butcher, narrated by James Marsters. Fairies, pizza and the courts of Summer and Winter made for an engaging listen.
