Weekend Book Reviews

If the Haunting Fits, Wear It by Rose Pressey is the fifth book in the A Haunted Vintage Mystery series.  I have read a previous book in the series.  While it is helpful, it is not necessary.  This is a paranormal themed mystery series and requires some leniency with readers' imaginations.  Cookie headed to the Kentucky Derby to help a client with her ghost, Charlotte, and her grandmother/cat in tow.  Add in two love interests, two additional ghosts, and one dead body for a full story line.  I do enjoy the Southern sayings sprinkled throughout the book.  This book is a very light, quick read.  That is not a bad thing - just be aware what you are getting.

The Windfall by Diksha Basu proves that no matter the culture everyone is focused on "keeping up with the Joneses".  Mr.and Mrs. Jha are embarking on a new life thanks to the sale of Mr. Jha's company.  They are moving from their tiny apartment to a new higher end neighborhood.  I enjoyed the characters and how similar the problems are to those here in America.  It is a nice reminder that people are basically the same.  I found the characters realistic and therefore likable.  Each had flaws, and I enjoyed how the relationships evolved throughout the book.

disclosure:  I received these e-books from NetGalley but was not otherwise compensated for these reviews.  All opinions are my own!
