Ice by Lauren Carr

Ice by Lauren Carr is the first novel in the Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery series. After reading another blogger’s review, I one-clicked and while looking for books that qualified for the #HoHoHoRAT I discovered it on my Kindle. Murder, cold cases and a secret club of retired law enforcement meeting in the library delivered a stellar story.

The Craftsman by Sharon J. Bolton

I was the mood for a creepy thriller and was drawn to the synopsis of The Craftsman by Sharon J. Bolton. Narrated by Nathalie Buscombe, Bolton offered a dark, gritty thriller with a serial killer who kidnaps and buries young children alive. A twisted thriller with spells and dark magic await you.

River Bodies by Karen Katchur

River Bodies by Karen Katchur is the first novel in the Northampton County mystery series. Multiple POVs, childhood flashbacks and a suspenseful buildup provided an entertaining mystery in Portland, Pennsylvania, a small river town that borders New Jersey, where neighbors keep their heads down and look the other way.

Close to the Bone by Kendra Elliot

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.

Marigolds and Murder by London Lovett

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.

The Sugarhouse Blues by Mariah Stewart

The Sugarhouse Blues by Mariah Stewart is the second book in the Hudson Sisters series and it was delightful to return to this small Pennsylvania town as the sisters Allie, Des, and Cara, work to restore the Sugarhouse theater. Cute dogs, wicked banter, and family gave way to growth and bonding.
