The Vanishing Type review

This is the fifth book in the Secret, Book & Scone Society Mysteries by one of my all-time favorite authors, Ellery Adams who’s written a seriously large amount of cozy mystery series that you can see by clicking her name to go to her Goodreads profile. I’ve enjoyed this particular series since it first came out, so I’m always caught up by the time I read the newest ARC. Reading one of these books (or any of Ms. Adams’ books) is like visiting old friends again.

 The Vanishing Type (Secret, Book, & Scone Society, #5)The Vanishing Type by Ellery Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Whenever I read the latest in this series, it’s always so easy to go back and visit with these amazing book club ladies. They’re all so awesome, I can’t even pick who’d be my favorite friend because I have fave things about each one of them. And that Sheldon, I just love his character! I really liked that Nora and McCabe were getting closer and how they were able to sleuth together. Everyone always got some part of the sleuthing to do.

Hester was happy to be engaged to Jasper, but that happiness didn’t last although it wasn’t anything that Jasper did. Hester’s past came back to haunt her in a very weird way that resulted in murder.

Not gonna give away any of the secrets you’ll learn when you read this, but it was super interesting and kept my attention the whole way. I hadn’t figured out who the killer was but it definitely made sense. Wow, what a showdown that just about all the friends had a part in including McCabe who thankfully got there when needed.

It’s great how there’s always a comforting ending with the friends all gathered for the explanation while enjoying good food and each other’s company. This series always causes a great book hangover!

Ink and Shadows review

This is the fourth book in the Secret, Book and Scone Society series by another of my favorite cozy writers, Ellery Adams. The series is much more than a cozy mystery as it tells the story of some really awesome friends who came together as women who were a bit broken with secrets they’d never told anyone else. They formed a book club, but they’ve been known to have emergency meetings if anyone in the town needs help, particularly one of their own or someone they’ve taken under their wing.

Nora’s extreme love of books helps her in just about every situation. I’d be proud to call any of these women a friend! Oh yes, and their new friend Sheldon too. He’s pretty cool!

My Goodreads review:

Ink and Shadows (Secret, Book, & Scone Society, #4)Ink and Shadows by Ellery Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It was great to catch up with Nora and her friends again. I’ve absolutely loved Sheldon’s character since he came on board as Nora’s friend and employee. There was lots of intrigue which made me want to keep reading, but there’s always some lighthearted moments especially now that they have Sheldon as a new friend.

The murder mystery wasn’t so much of a whodunit but “when will the killer strike next” and how they’d go about catching said killer. The showdown was really awesome, and finally Nora felt like her friend was at peace. Nora and Jed had a little rough patch along the way, but I think they’ll be fine. As always, I look forward to the next book!
