Al DeSantis is a classic, damaged gumshoe but with a youthful energy that pulls you through the pages. Crime fiction has boasted some famous fathers and sons, from Inspector Richard Queen and his son Ellery to Jim Rockford and his dad Rocky. Add to that list the unforgettable duo of Al DeSantis and Big Al—building on that tradition but with some provocative twists. A fine, multi-layered debut. Pompano is a skilled storyteller who offers readers a complex mystery of chases, confrontation and introspection. The tale he weaves is, indeed a well-crafted murder mystery, set in a turbulent sea of emotions and populated with multifaceted characters.
This one is heavy on the mystery and very little thriller aspect. It is an enjoyable sometimes snarky read that made me smile. The main characters were so well written I felt like I knew them. The mystery itself was wrapped in mystery as we got to know the individuals and the hidden nuances of small towns.
I personally wanted the ending to share with everyone who was guilty.

There are also some unique creations showing up around town that may tie into the case. Abby along with her sidekick Zeke, for the most part, a Bull Mastiff, a gentle giant, at least most of the time set out to find the real killer. Her friend Police Chief Gage tries to keep her safe knowing she will not back down. I liked Abby right away in the first book of this series, Death by Committee , I love her now. Check out the way she takes a new detective down on notch with just her words.
Please let me finish. Blackston, Chief Logan will be glad to schedule you an appointment. This particular time slot, however, is already taken. Blackston and I were talking. She is getting there but her kind nature I believe she will always be a soft touch especially when she feels is honoring her aunt. Morgan has surrounded Abby with a great supporting cast.
We are getting to know Tripp Blackston a little better and the connection between him and Abby is getting stronger. The ladies from the quilting group are always there to help, advise or butt in as needed. The author has written a strong mystery too. I was pulled in many different directions over the course of the novel. Alexis Morgan expertly pens a slow build the rachets up at a delightful pace all leading up a dramatic ending. She describes everything so clearly readers can feel like they are right there on the spot.
I really have to applaud the author for the way she addressed homeless veterans and veterans, in general, dealing with veterans with PTSD and finding their way back in the world after surviving horrendous things can be a rough road. Many in Snowberry Creek were on the wrong side of this issue but thankfully there were those willing to help, some veterans themselves. Putting a hot topic issue like this into a work of fiction makes it more real and relevant. I loved the Halloween theme and was totally entertained beginning to end.

Receiving a complimentary copy in no way reflected my review of this book. Welcome to Cozy Wednesday! A Charming Escape by Bree Baker. As a fifth-generation Midwesterner, I come from a long line of people who escape annually to the beach. We go off-season and enjoy the quiet. The beaches. Maritime forests. Deep sense of history, museums. Lighthouses and wild horses.
I wish I never had to leave. Make up something else instead. Now I escape to one version of the islands I love each day while I write about Everly and her fantastic escapades, but, it got me thinking… If I escape to the islands, where do islanders escape? I decided to ask Everly and it turns out she had quite a bit to say on the subject.

As it turns out, Everly is a bit of an escape artist. She often sometimes escapes into nature, walking the boardwalk, digging her toes in the sand or wading through the surf. She frequently borrows novels from the Little Libraries her best friend, Amelia, has set up throughout the town and on the boardwalk. If her great-aunts are home, Everly escapes to the Swan family homestead where they share midnight pancakes and endless glasses of sweet tea around a table that has been in their kitchen for more than a hundred years.
If not to eat her secret stash of lemon cake, then to create something new and magnificent to share. Everly grew up at the counter, mixing potions from bags and bowls of homegrown ingredients, chopping produce from the family gardens and sweetening secret recipes with honey from their hives. And there is no better experience than seeing her friends, family, and neighbors truly become enchanted by her spells.
