My Review

Annabelle awakens to find her family brutally murdered and herself as the prime suspect in Detective Xavier Montague’s investigation. But all is not as it appears and the detective soon finds himself falling for her as a crazed killer remains at large.

The author takes you to the dark side in this macabre murder mystery. Her main character’s, Annabelle and Xavier are genuine, flaws and all. And the killer is not easily identified and has a motive you won’t see coming.

From the beginning, I was sucked right in. Annabelle is the obvious suspect for her families brutal murder. How could she sleep through the events? But it isn’t long before the detective investigating the case has doubts. It seems Annabelle might have been drugged. And his hunch may be right as more fall victim to a sadistic killer.

The investigation kept me burning the midnight oil. Anxious to see who the killer was and what his twisted motive was in leaving one victim alive as he killed more families.

As I came to know Annabelle and Xavier my curiosity about them grew. Why did Annabelle feel unlovable and what haunted Xavier from his past?

Fans of reality based crime shows and fictional ones like Criminal Minds will love this pulse pounding thriller.

Synopsis

Did she murder her family or is she being set up?

A couple, their two teenage sons, and seven year old daughter are all slaughtered in their beds. The only survivor is oldest daughter, Annabelle.

Detective Xavier Montague is intrigued by Annabelle even though he knows he shouldn’t be. His attraction to her will force him to make the ultimate choice, a life and death decision, that could let a psychotic murderer walk free.

 My  Review

Sofia Everette may be physically week, as she’s bound to a wheelchair because of an unknown illness, but she’s mentally strong and capable. This causes her domineering father to disown her. After a woman’s body is found on the families estate and someone starts picking off members of the Everette family, Sofia must dig deep to figure out the killer’s motive before more die.

This is a dark one, indeed. And the list of suspects is large, as most of them could be from the Everette family itself. A tribe of entitled sycophants, not one of them is worthy of the title, human. They’re all capable of murder and have motives. Talk about a perverted, dysfunctional family.

Sofia is intriguing. She’s not physically strong, but she has a sharp intellect and a fierce determination to be independent. But will that be enough to save her as the killer gets closer?

Used to seeing the darkest sides that humanity has to offer, seasoned Detective Xavier Montague is tested as he races to catch the killer while the bodies pile up.

Brace yourselves for impact as the author deftly drops you down the rabbit hole, has you stumbling in the dark, and finally releases you back into the light with a thrilling finale.

4 Stars

Synopsis

Before the sun rises, another will die.

A woman is found murdered on the grounds of the powerful Everette family’s estate. Then someone begins methodically killing off members of the Everette family one by one.

Detective Ryan Xander’s only inroad to the secretive family is Sofia Everette. Shunned by her father for her refusals to obey him, and battling a mysterious illness, Sofia’s childhood dreams may be the key to saving her life and stopping the killer from exterminating the entire Everette clan.

Some chit chat.

To all of you moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day!

I spent Mother’s Day with my son. I made popcorn with extra butter. We turned out the lights. And we watched a marathon of Star Trek movies. Then we had a discussion about some upcoming movies, such as the new Aliens film, the IT movie, and a rumor about the remake of Creature From The Black Lagoon. By then it was the wee hours of the morn and we hit the sack. It was a perfect day.

So, what did you do this weekend?

Magick & Mayhem

An Abracadabra Mystery

by Sharon Pape

This is a fun cozy, full of unique and interesting characters, humor, and just enough magic.
~The Book’s the Thing

I love me some quirky characters, magical escapades, and good mysteries. Good thing Magick & Mayhem has all of that and more!
~Sissy, Bubble Bath Books

I am so excited to share this new series with you. It combines so many wonderful, magical things I love to read about. It is a true cozy in every sense.
~Laura’s Interests

* I love how the magic is understated and simplistic, that intent and belief play such a large role.
* Drawn in quickly.
* Easy to read.
~The Broke Book Bank

Sharon Pape provides an entertaining mystery with plenty of fun. MAGICK AND MAYHEM is a solid start to a new mystery series.
~Cozy Up with Kathy

Almost before I was half way through the novel did I expect to give it a five-star rating. Having finished, I’d definitely give it 10 stars and can’t wait to get my hands on the second instalment in the Abracadabra Mystery Series by Sharon Pape. A must-read at all costs.

My Review

She gets more than she bargained for when Kailyn Wilde and her Aunt Tilly arrive at the lawyer’s office. After losing her mother and grandmother to a terrible accident, Kailyn needs to finalize some legalities about inheriting the family business, but instead finds the lawyers dead body. The detective assigned to the case doesn’t rule them out as suspects but has his sights firmly set on the dead mans wife, Elise, who just happens to be Kailyn’s best friend. Not one to stand by and let her friend go to jail for murder, Kailyn sets out to clear her name.

I love a good cozy mystery and was looking forward to meeting the folks of New Camel. Kailyn is a delight. I honestly didn’t know how she knew when she was coming or going. It wasn’t enough that she was left with a business to run and a house full of cats, one of which lets his opinions be known. She’s also trying to get a handle on why magick is on the blink, causing some inconvenient and often hilarious occurrences. To top it off, while summoning a familiar, something which she should have done earlier, an unexpected visitor arrives, creating it’s own sort of mayhem.

There’s a scene where some puppies get loose that had me laughing out loud, along with the ghostly visits from Kailyns’ mom and grandmother. I suspect that’s where the word Mayhem, from the title, enters the story. Plenty occurs to keep you entertained, including the stunning finale.

Cozy mystery fans need to check out this new series. Get in on the beginning. You’ll be turning the pages quickly, as eager to find out who the villain is as you will be to find out what mayhem happens on the next page.

Synopsis

What’s in a murderer’s bag of tricks?

Twenty-something Kailyn Wilde has learned to embrace her unpredictable life as a descendant of small-town New Camel’s most magickal family. She just didn’t expect to inherit her mother and grandmother’s centuries-old shop, Abracadabra, so suddenly. The surprises keep coming when Kailyn goes to finalize the estate at the local attorney’s office—and stumbles over the body of her best friend Elise’s husband . . .

As a brash detective casts the blame on Elise, Kailyn summons her deepest powers to find answers and start an investigation of her own. What with running a business, perfecting ancient spells, and keeping up with an uninvited guest of fabled origins, Kailyn has her hands full. But with the help of her uncanny black cat Sashkatu and her muumuu-clad Aunt Tilly, she’s closing in on a killer—who will do anything to make sure she never tests her supernatural skills again!

Author Sharon Pape

I started writing stories as soon as I learned how to put letters together to form words. From that day forward, writing has been a part of my life whether it was my first attempt at a novel in seventh grade or the little plays I wrote for my friends to perform for neighbors and family. After college, when I was busy teaching French and Spanish to high school students, I was also writing poetry — some of it in French.

After several years, I left teaching to be a full time mom, and when my two children started school, I went back to writing. To my delight I found that the muse was still there, still waiting patiently for me to come around. My first novel, Ghostfire, was published at that time. It went on to be condensed in Redbook magazine (the first paperback original the magazine had ever condensed.) Then came The God Children and The Portal. Redbook also published my first short story, which was subsequently sold to several foreign magazines. With two great kids, a golden retriever and a loving, supportive husband (whom I’d met at the beach when I was fourteen — but that’s a story for another day), I felt like I was exactly where I was meant to be in my life. But fate had another plan for me, and it went by the name of “breast cancer.”

Looking back, I realize how fortunate I was that the cancer was discovered at such an early stage, but at the time it was all very overwhelming. Once I was back on my feet, I wanted to help other women who were newly diagnosed, worried and afraid. I became a Reach to Recovery volunteer for the American Cancer Society and went on to run the program for Nassau and Suffolk Counties on Long Island. A number of years later, with the help of my surgical oncologist and two other volunteers, I started Lean On Me, a nonprofit organization that provides peer support and information to breast cancer patients. When Lean On Me celebrated its tenth anniversary it no longer required as much of my time, and I once again found myself free to pursue my first love — writing.

Welcome to Freaking Fridays, where I share my reviews of books that scare you, thrill you, and get those endorphins pumping.

I’ve got another one to share from the John Cleaver Series by Dan Wells.

My Review

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t read the early stories, this review may contain spoilers.

John’s only seventeen and lost everyone important in his life. With no where to turn he joins a covert team that hunts the monsters that go bump in the night.

It’s a whole new ball game, maybe. Hunting monsters isn’t new. John’s still battling his dark side.  But the team he’s joined isn’t much better than the monsters. The twisted lengths he goes through to not kill are so very macabre.

I’m so glad the author kept John on course. Kept him scary. It’s his constant struggle not to give in and go on a killing spree that keeps the story taut and edgy.

Egads. Just when I thought this series couldn’t get any better, that Dan Wells couldn’t take it further into the out of, I’m proven wrong. This is a chilling read and makes you squirm. I loved every bit of it and smiled in ghoulish glee.

Way to go, Dan. Keep em coming. And please, keep making me squirm.

  5 Stars

Narrator Kirby Heyborne

I’m so glad Kirby is still narrating this series. I’ve gotten used to his voice and his ability to give the character’s distinctive and easy to recognize voices makes him a favorite of mine.

Thanks so much to Tantor Audio and the author for this complimentary copy.

Synopsis

John Wayne Cleaver hunts demons: they’ve killed his neighbors, his family, and the girl he loves, but in the end he’s always won. Now he works for a secret government kill team, using his gift to hunt and kill as many monsters as he can…

…but the monsters have noticed, and the quiet game of cat and mouse is about to erupt into a full scale supernatural war.

John doesn’t want the life he’s stuck with. He doesn’t want the FBI bossing him around, he doesn’t want his only friend imprisoned in a mental ward, and he doesn’t want to face the terrifying cannibal who calls himself The Hunter. John doesn’t want to kill people. But as the song says, you can’t always get what you want. John has learned that the hard way; his clothes have the stains to prove it.

When John again faces evil, he’ll know what he has to do.
The Devil’s Only Friend is the first book in a brand-new John Wayne Cleaver trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Dan Wells.

Title: Witch Cake Murders
Author: Zoe Arden
Publisher: Independent
Pages: 330
Genre: Cozy Mystery
.

My Review

When Ava Rose was one year old, her mother was killed for being a witch. For her protection, her father leaves the magical town of Sweetland Cove on the island of Heavenly Haven and disappears with Ava into the large city of New York. Twenty years later, Ava is visited by two strange women claiming to be her aunts, and her past is revealed. Angry at her father for hiding what she is, she leaves with her aunts and returns to the island.

At first it’s fun. She’s part owner of a magical bakery and a natural at emotionally spelling the desserts. But when a human eats her cupcake and is later found dead, suspicion points at her. When more humans die, she begins to wonder if she is the killer.

The excitement of finding out who she is becomes dread as all eyes are turned on her.

Right from the beginning something in the back of mind kept poking at me. Then I got it. This book reminded me of the movie Practical Magic, in a way. Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman, sisters and witches, have two zany aunts. Once I got that out of my head, I settled in to enjoy the funny, madcap, and mysterious story of Ava, the witch.

This is a fast paced read, with many a chuckle, and no clear clue as to who is killing humans or why.  There are  many quirky, interesting characters, and if there were an island like Heavenly Haven, I’d be a permanent resident.

I didn’t realize this was the second book in the series. Don’t let that deter you. Each book stands alone and the author wraps things up nicely. You aren’t left hanging.

Witches and humans have always existed peacefully in Sweetland Cove… until now.
.
Someone is killing humans and drawing unwanted attention to the supernatural residents of Sweetland Cove.
.
Ava Rose just turned twenty-one, and with her birthday came a few surprises.
.
One: she’s a witch.
.
Two: she’s part owner of a magical bakery she never knew existed.
.
Three: Someone wants her dead.
.
The day Ava arrives in Sweetland Cove, murders begin occurring…
Witches and wizards are quick to blame her, but Ava’s aunts won’t let the town they love turn against her.
,
But murders follow Ava everywhere.
.
Soon, she finds herself on the receiving end of the killer’s mad spree. With a crazy wizarding sheriff who
wants to lock her up, and an even crazier wizarding detective who wants to lock her whole family up, Ava must solve this case alone.
.
But as the days pass and the only clues point to her, Ava starts to wonder if maybe the sheriff is right.
.
Maybe she really is the killer.
.
The only thing Ava knows for sure is that the witches of Sweetland are not happy with her. Especially those
witches who have something to hide.
.
And they all have something to hide.
.
Can Ava stop the killer before they strike again… even if that killer is her?

Witch Cake Murders is available at Amazon.

Book Excerpt:

“Let
me ask you something,” Brendan said. “You’re a witch. Why do witches
like human men?” He was looking at me so earnestly I felt compelled to
answer him. I just didn’t know what to say.
“Um…”
I stammered. “I don’t know. I grew up around humans, so I guess I’m just
drawn to them.” I looked back through the glass patio door at Damon, who
was dancing with Megan again. Brendan followed my gaze, looking miserable.
“Love
sucks,” he said, then shoved the purple stem he’d been twirling into his
pocket and skulked off. I turned back to the stars and sighed.
An earth-shattering
scream rose into the night, making me jump.
Through
the patio door, I could see a crowd gathering around the perimeter of the room.
A woman was screaming. I hurried inside. The crowd had opened up, leaving two
people in its center.
Felicity
stood there, her mouth hanging open.
Campbell was dancing around her, his hands flying unnaturally
through the air. His head was tilted at an odd angle and his tongue lolled out
the side of his mouth, like a thirsty dog. He was making strange grunting noises
that almost resembled words.
“He’s
drunk!” someone yelled.
Campbell swung his hips around and bumped into Felicity, who
stumbled away from him.
“All
right, all right, break it up,” Felicity’s boyfriend Lincoln said.
Lincoln was the sheriff of Mistmoor Point, and the crowded parted
for him as he came through.  Even if he
hadn’t been a sheriff, I suspected the crowd would still have parted for him.
At six feet tall with bronze hair and blue eyes, he made quite a figure in the
middle of a crowd.
“Okay,
Campbell. Time to go home,” Lincoln said, clamping one hand down on his shoulder.
Campbell yanked Lincoln hard,
sending him flying across the room. Everyone gasped.
Campbell stopped, looked around, then let out a strange gurgling
sound. He fell to the floor. His face was bright blue.
Felicity
hunkered down next to him. She gave him one hard shake then looked up at the
rest of the room, her mouth gaping.
“He’s
dead,” she cried. “
Campbell‘s dead!”
Who
would be next?

About The Author
.

It was from reading Agatha Christie’s mystery books that inspired Zoe to write cozy mystery novels. Zoe liked the fact that cozy mysteries are able to offer readers a form of escapism that typical detective stories can’t.

Like what Marilyn Stasio, who has been the Crime columnist forThe New York TimesBook Review since the late 1980s, recently wrote: “The abiding appeal of the cozy mystery owes a lot to our collective memory, true or false, of simpler, sweeter times.” It is Zoe’s desire that her writings will evoke that nostalgic memory in all of us; those memories of the good old days.

What sets Zoe apart in her writings is her fusing of Mystery with Paranormal elements, a combination which will bring about fantasies that are intriguing and engaging. Her stories contain unexpected twists and sometimes light-hearted moments that will make one smile at Zoe’s quirkiness, fun and wittiness in her writings.

You can connect with Zoe at Facebook.

Some chit chat.

I didn’t do a lot of my usual features this week. When WordPress updated, the gremlins ran amok on my blog. I’m not kidding. It was chaos trying to fix things. The most persistent problem was trying to hide links behind images. After many attempts, I just couldn’t fix it. Know how I finally did? I dreamed about it. Got up Saturday morning, tried what I dreamed about, and it worked. Go figure. I do this often when writing reviews. I’ll dream about something I want to say, wake up, and quickly jot it on a notepad conveniently sitting on my night stand.

You know that saying, “Why fix it if it ain’t broke.” I seriously wonder sometimes if the powers that be play with stuff just to screw with me. LOL
