Weekend Book Reviews

Southern Double Cross by Caroline Fardig is the third book in the Southern B&B Mystery series.  Quinn and her sister, Delilah, help their father run a bed and breakfast in Savannah.  Quinn is helping with a local fundraiser.  Things are going as smoothly as they can until the homeowner is found murdered.  With the main suspect being the brother of Quinn's friend, Quinn and Delilah find themselves in the middle of a mystery.  I loved the southern setting for this book as well as the differences between Quinn and Delilah.  This series can easily become one of my favorites.

The fourth book in the Kebab Kitchen Mystery series by Tina Kashian is On the Lamb.  Lucy and her friends are attending a bonfire before the tourist season is in full swing.  The evening is cut short when a local landlord is found murdered.  Unfortunately one of Lucy's friends had a public fight with the man shortly before his death.  Lucy is determined to prove her friend's innocence.  A few side story lines keep this book moving along quickly.  My new favorite character might be Lucy's landlady who is full of spunk!

Dressed Up 4 Murder by J.C. Eaton is the sixth book in the Sophie Kimball Mystery series.  Phee's mother is focused on the retirement community's pet costume contest, a three part event that she is determined Streetman will win.  Streetman has other ideas when he sniffs out a dead body in the neighbor's back yard.  Phee tries to keep her mother's focus on the contest while Phee keeps her focus on the murder.  The mystery portion is not as strong with plenty of obvious clues left along the way.  Still I love the characters so much that it was not a deal breaker.  I can hardly wait to see what Phee's mother gets into next.

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