Book Title: Killer Cupcakescupcakes

Rating: 5 Dragon Paws 5 paws

I adore free books, especially if they are by one of my favorite authors. I believe this is a first book by Leighann that I read that didn’t have a paranormal aspect to it which is also fun.

First of all, the cover is very cute. The cupcakes don’t look killer at all and it promises to be a good read with all that pink.

Second of all, I miss my grandmother. She would have liked to hang out with the modern tech-savvy elderly ladies of the Ladies Detective Club. That made this cozy mystery all the better! I had it all pictured in my head when Lexy learned about her grandmother’s activities and that they have the latest iPad’s. Priceless!

So a bit about the book. Someone gets killed. Lexy is a top suspect and the cop in charge is her hot next door neighbor. Lexy owns a bakery and wants to solve the case before the cops cause it’s hurting her business so she seeks advice from the club, thinks up suspects with her best friend/employee, and eats burgers with the cop. What a fun mix. ^_^

Also, I loved the play on the word- Darling. That was a really nice touch!

Highly recommend to cozy mystery lovers!

Book Title: Chasing the Omega omega

Book Author: Jessica Edwards

Rating: 3.5 Dragon Paws 4

For 18+. Has a sex scene.  

Hmm. What to say? What to say?

I chose to read the book because the author promoted in a Goodreads group I am part of and because I liked the title. I haven’t read about werewolves lately which was a needed change. I needed a simple, easy-going read over the weekend for when I was walking my son and this turned out just that. It did have some typos but they didn’t stand out too much.

The characters were all different and I liked that the main character was named Alice. A nice change to fancy names that pop up in books lately. My favorite character was her best friend, Sam. She was a nice treat though had a mouth on her. Alice is a strong character, though believed fast into what happened to her. It felt a little rushed, but worked out pretty okay, especially when she started to get to know Ryder and the rest of the characters.

So a little bit about the book. It has werewolves, learning about how to be a wolf, and a string of murders. The string of murders isn’t the only thing that needs to be solved for Alice. Alice also needs to solve the mystery that is Max. So that’s two mysteries which create a pretty strong story line. This is book 1 of the series and looking forward to reading book 2.

Warning: It does end on a cliffhanger so be prepared to wait for book 2.
