Sunday Book Reviews

Knot On Your Life by Betty Hechtman is the seventh book in the Yarn Retreat Mystery series.  Casey runs a yarn retreat and is a part-time dessert maker.  Her yarn retreat is sharing space with a group of tech people on a mindfulness retreat.  When she discovers one of the tech people dead, she begins to suspect he was murdered.  Even worse she thinks one of the members of her yarn retreat could be guilty.  This is the first book I have read in this series, but I was able to follow along just fine.  I enjoyed the book and would read more from this series.

The tenth book in the Tourist Trap Mystery series by Lynn Cahoon is Memories and Murder.  Jill's bookstore is hosting a discussion on elder abuse.  At the time she had no idea that she would be seeking the speaker's help regarding that very topic and he Aunt Jackie.  Meanwhile a murder in town has everyone on edge.  I love this series, and this book fit right in.  It also brought to light how anyone can fall for a nefarious scam artist.  I look forward to more in this series.

Sealed Off by Barbara Ross is the eighth book in the Maine Clambake Mystery series.  The clambake season is winding down.  Jill and her family are working with a skeleton crew for the last of the clambakes while another crew is working on the family mansion.  Several of the clambake crew are not getting along and without the buffer of the other crew members a fight breaks out between two of them.  When one of the fighters is found dead on the island, the second is the obvious suspect.  This book was full of twists and turns even though the clues are huge red flags to what is really going on.  I enjoy the characters and am anxious to see how things develop after this book.

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