Notebook Mysteries ~ Emma by Kimberly Mullins

This is another fantastic book I’ve read by the author. Emma is the first book in the Notebook Mysteries Series. It doesn’t need to be read first, but it is nice to know how her story started.

Emma is trying to figure out her life and where she wants it to go. She finds her mother’s journal and finds that her mom was trying to solve a case. She finishes the case for her mom and finds out what really happened to her. The quote I chose for Emma is: “You know my name is Emma. My full name is Emma Evans. I work as an investigator occasionally. Someone I know asked me to look into your family. It wasn’t meant to be malicious, they were worried about you. I will continue if that is alright.”

Highly recommended for YA Cozy Mystery lovers.

Caim (Antipodes Series #4) by T.S. Simons

This is another great read by the author. Caim is a great read and now I’m understanding more and more of the story. This is the fourth book in the Antipodes Series.

Cam is back and now he’s got kids to worry about. He and his wife are awake early one morning due to guests. When they discover who it is, things get tricky. Can they figure it out? The quote I chose for Cam is: “It was a massive omission. You stitched us both that day and said nothing. Not to mention all those evenings we spent together. We trusted you. Thought you were our friend.”

Freyja is Cam’s wife and mother of his kids. When they go to meet the guests she finds that their daughters look just like her and her daughters. That can’t be right, can it? The quote I chose for Freyja is: “God had nothing to do with it.”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

In Plain Sight: A Logan McKenna Mystery #8 by Valerie Davisson

This is another great read by the author. In Plain Sight is the eighth book in the Logan McKenna Mysteries. Once again I’m amazed by what the author does with her words.

Logan is once again making an interesting discovery. Another murder happens and it doesn’t involve her. Logan isn’t sure what to make of it, but she knows that there’s nothing she can do. The quote I chose for Logan is: “As soon as I know anything, I’ll come find you and fill you in, I promise. In the meantime, when the police get here, bring them back to the hospital, okay? Louise is on her way in. If anyone else comes in this way, just send them home. Maybe put a sign out for visitors.”

Highly recommended for Crime Thriller lovers.

Bake Happy (Bake Believe Trilogy #3) by Cori Cooper

This is the third and final book in the Bake Believe Trilogy. Bake Happy is a great book and so far the best one in the series. The author knows how to keep readers entertained.

Cat is back and ready for action. One minute she can bake happy feelings into her treats and now she can’t. Nate is the problem. Or is he? Maybe she’s the problem. The quote I chose for Cat is: “No! Robyn, I’m super pumped. I’m going to figure out how to get my baking back, and I’m going to bake the world a better place. Just like I promised Evie. And it’s going to work this time, I can feel it!”

Highly recommended for YA Fantasy lovers.

I’m Not Your Difference: A Fitz Series Book by Theresa Sederholt

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. If you don’t like Male/Male relationships this book isn’t for you. I’m Not Your Difference is a great read and I enjoyed it. This is part of the Fitz Series.

Andy is battling Parkinson’s and raising a daughter on his own. He was married at one point, but his husband decided it was too much for him to handle. Now Andy is trying to move on for the sake of his daughter. The quote I chose for Andy is: “Fitz, this is not like you. You’re such a forgiving person. Did you ever think that maybe he realized he was wrong? Maybe he wants to make amends.”

Stephen was Andy’s husband and made the biggest mistake of his life. Seeing Andy happy made him realize that he wants Andy back. Now he’s got to figure out what to do to get him back. The quote I chose for Stephen is: “I can’t. I’ve got an important case to work on. I’m going in the shower. You can let yourself out. Stone, I really need to get to work. Honestly, this isn’t working for me. Maybe if I was younger, like you, my mindset would be different.”

Highly recommended for M/M Crime Romance lovers.

The Blood Prince by Ayla Marie

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. The Blood Prince is a fantastic read. I absolutely loved every minute of the book. Leo is the only one I chose a quote for because it seems hes the main character in this book.

Now they are trying to figure out what to do next. The quote I chose for Leo is: “Come on, Cael.

Rivals: An Enemies to Lovers Mafia Romance (Mafia Elite #7) by Amy McKinley

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. So far every single book is amazing in its own way. This book tops them all though. This is the seventh book in the Mafia Elite Series. I really can’t choose my favorite book.

Mia comes from a different side of the mafia. She isn’t sure where to fit in only to find her love in the La Rosa family. She finds that her father isn’t really her father. The quote I chose for Mia is: “I’ve only been here, Chicago, and Grand Cayman. I’m not sure where I would want to go. Maybe Italy? It’s hard to believe I’ve never been there, being Mafia and all.”

Nico was engaged and then stuff happened. Now he’s trying to figure out where to go from here. He meets Mia and knows that he’s got to have her. Then stuff went down and now they’re putting their lives on hold. The quote I chose for Nico is: “My sister urged me to purchase property here even if I wasn’t ready to build. That’s ours. We can build a house whenever you want.”

Highly recommended for Mafia Romance lovers.

Thief (an opposites attract, enemies-to-lovers Mafia romantic suspense) by Leslie Georgeson

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. I couldn’t put this book down and had a hard time with it ending. You will love Thief if you love an enemy to lovers books. This one will leave you hanging by a thread.

Leah is a celebrity and came from nothing. She shops, but she always checks her receipts. Losing her wallet turns out isn’t that bad as now she’s stuck with the thief who stole her car. The quote I chose for Leah is: “No! You get out! This is my car! I worked my ass off for this beauty, and you are not taking her from me!”

Dominik is good at his job selling cars and stealing them. So imagine his surprise when the exact car he’s looking for parks next him at a store. He’s never been caught until Leah. Shocks him, but now he’s got a famous hostage. The quote I chose for Dominik is: “Yeah. Tie her up and toss her in the back of the Escalade. Then follow me back to the shop.”

Highly recommended for Romantic Suspense lovers.

THE COOL THING: A DARK COMEDY. OR NOT. by Robert Rife

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. The Cool Thing is a book that will leave you confused, but it’s an interesting read. It will leave you wanting more from the author.

There were several characters in the story and I really couldn’t choose one to talk about. You’ve got Carl; who is hoping for a break in life, Manny; who runs the shop Carl goes to all the time and he likes hiding away from his wife, and R.L.; who lives next door to a black woman who’s church just inherited a haunted house and is dating a teenager. I couldn’t choose a quote for any of them.

Highly recommended for Sci-fi Horror lovers.
