Peach Clobbered review

This is the first book in a brand new series released earlier this month. It’s written by Anna Gerard and called Georgia B&B. If this first book is any indication, I hope we’re in for a nice long series! I really enjoyed the character of Nina and even Harry, as well as the various people in town, not to mention the nuns who were the first guests at Nina’s new B&B. I’m really anxious to read the next book!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this brand new series first so much! It was funny in places and really kept my interest as far as wanting to see what happened next. I mean a group of nuns in a town where the murder was being referred to as the Penguin Suit murder just made me chuckle. Just like Nina, I grew pretty fond of all those sisters when they moved into the B&B. Despite their similar names (each was Sister Mary something), they did each have their own quirks or personalities and I hoped that they wouldn’t have to leave anytime soon. Even though I didn’t want to like Harry at first (he showed up claiming that Nina’s house-now-B&B was promised to him by his great aunt, but she never lived to revise her will), I couldn’t help but find him likable eventually. Nina found herself softening toward him as well, possibly the influence of living with the good sisters, or maybe she just thought he was hot. 😉

I hadn’t guessed the killer and after the happy ending that everyone got, I’m anxious to see what the author has in store next for Nina, Mattie-pup and their friends.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.

Southern Discomfort–review

This is the first book in a new series that just came out this week, Southern B&B by Caroline Fardig. I love how it’s set in the South in Savannah, GA, has a B&B and also that B&B has a resident helpful ghost we learn is Uncle Frank who gives cryptic clues. I hope that Quinn eventually gets to see him like Papa Sal and Delilah can.

Southern Discomfort (A Southern B&B Mystery #1)Southern Discomfort by Caroline Fardig

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a fun start to a new series! Set in Savannah, GA, Bellandini sisters Delilah and Quinn run the family B&B along with their grandfather, Papa Sal. When their friend Drew’s brother Jason is killed in their friends’ family restaurant and is arrested for the murder, Quinn can’t leave it alone especially since she thinks the police suspect her as well.

Two heads are usually better than one so Delilah gets involved in the investigation as well, along with trying to match make between Quinn and their old but now new neighbor, Tucker. Can they find the real killer before Drew and possibly Quinn are both sent up the river for good?

I really enjoyed all these great main characters! Papa Sal is just the kind of grandpa anyone would want even though he does take advice from his dead brother Frank’s ghost, or so he says he sees him. I loved how when push came to shove, Delilah had her younger sister’s back and dug into the investigation with her. They would tease each other good-naturedly but always were looking out for each other.

I feel like we got to know the characters with just the right amount of backstory and information, definitely not an overload. Delilah and Quinn were people I would want to be friends with. Quinn playing in bar band gigs on the side was an interesting touch, not really something expected out of a B&B part owner.

It was fun how clues that Uncle Frank gave actually worked out–I’m hoping we see, er I mean hear more from him in future books. I was happy to see things develop smoothly between Tucker and Delilah–it’ll be interesting to see what kinds of adventures these people get into next!
