5/5 Stars

This is one of my favorite series, this book does not disappoint. I enjoy my visits with the residents of South Cove, it feels like I’m catching up with friends. The author does a great job of setting the scene so it feels I’m right there with the characters. Speaking of characters, I love seeing them grow and evolve with each new book. I can’t wait to read what happens next!

Review – It’s Always the Husband by Michele Campbell

3/5 Stars

I wanted to like this book than I did. The blurb for the book really caught my attention and had me wanting to know more about these characters. Once I started the book, I had a hard time getting into the story. The first part felt heavy handed in descriptions with seeming little to move the story along. It wasn’t until around the half-way point where the story picked up for me.

Please, don’t get me wrong, I thought the author wrote very well and provided well fleshed out characters. I tend to not care for books that are overly descriptive, I find I get bored; that’s just me.

The author tells the story by switching back and forth between past and present. I thought this was done’ very well and helped add suspense to the story.

This is the first book by this author that I have read and I would be interested in looking into other work by her.

I felt as though I really got to know the characters and where they were coming from. I couldn’t help but laugh one minute then cry the next. This is the first book by this author I have read and it won’t be my last.

I absolutely love this series and this book was no exception. I was quickly drawn into the story and didn’t want to put the book down. The author brings vibrant, likable characters to life in this charming mystery series. I enjoy the detail the author gives when describing the character’s clothing or surroundings, this helps bring the story to life and has me feeling I’m right in the mix with the characters. The author kept me guessing who the culprit was until the final reveal, I love a mystery that keeps me guessing.

5/5 Stars

This is the second book in the Cat Latimer Mystery Series and it does not disappoint. This book quickly drew me in and kept me glued to the pages. With the second session of the writer’s retreat in full swing, Cat is faced with someone stealing valuable manuscripts from the college library, a guest with a stalker, secrets, murder, and a possible ghost.. Cat puts on her sleuthing hat to try and figure out what is going on.

This is a wonderfully written murder mystery. The story has many layers that are slowly peeled away to reveal the story. The characters are complex, interesting and likable, even the “bad guys.” I was kept on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. There are several surprises, and plenty of twists that kept me guessing. I look forward to reading more in this series.
