Rum and Choke review

This is the fourth book in the Chloe Jackson, Sea Glass Saloon Mysteries by Sherry Harris, and I’ve followed this series from its beginning. I love the setting and all the town characters that helped make Chloe’s transition to Florida a little nicer for her. Vivi’s even come around a lot in the four books and is more like a friend as well as a business partner. Joachim always cracks me up, and I love the pairing of Chloe with Rip. They’re such a cute couple! Can’t wait to see what happens in the next book! 

My Goodreads review:

Rum and Choke (A Chloe Jackson Sea Glass Saloon Mystery Book 4)Rum and Choke by Sherry Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It was great going back to Emerald Cove to hang out with Chloe and her friends. She and Vivi have come a really long way in their strange friendship since book 1 at least. At least Vivi knows how much Chloe thought of her grandson and that she’d been grieving almost as much as Vivi had. Chloe had her plate full with training for the Barback Games as well as going with the mysterious Ann Williams. We got to see a lot more of Ann in this book than before. She was actually a main person of interest when she found a body, but I think Chloe found out that she could definitely trust this security-minded woman with her life even though she did have pirate ancestors lol.

I hadn’t really seen the whodunit coming and I can see why Ann and Chloe could consider this a gray area. The very ending was so darn sweet and just what I’d been waiting for!

Three Shots to the Wind review

This is the third book in the Chloe Jackson, Sea Glass Saloon Mysteries by Sherry Harris who also wrote the Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mysteries. I’m really enjoying this series a lot and how the characters have developed since the first book. I honestly liked the key players from the get-go, but it’s been fun watching them grow and change. Chloe and Rip are such a cute couple, and I can’t wait to see what their future holds!

Three Shots to the Wind (Chloe Jackson Sea Glass Saloon Mystery Book 3)Three Shots to the Wind by Sherry Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved catching up with Chloe and the gang and seeing how life in January is for the Emerald cove residents–and visitors. Several interesting visitors came along during the course of the book, two of which helped add some good comic relief to some of the scenes. I like Chloe and Rip as a couple, they’re so stinking cute! And I really love that Vivi’s coming around in only the way Vivi can as far as being nicer to Chloe and at one point fiercely defending her. She’s a good mama bear to have on your side, that’s for sure! I have a feeling she and Chloe might actually get to be fairly good friends in time. I know she probably intimidates the life out of Chloe as only Vivi can do. (She makes me think of Angela Channing on Falcon Crest lol).

All Chloe wanted to do was clear poor Rip of any blame in her ex-fiancĂ©’s death. There was a huge assortment of suspects to pick from, but I sure didn’t see the whodunit coming! The showdown was exciting and a little tense but just right. I enjoyed the very ending and hope that there’ll be many more adventures for Chloe and Rip in future books.
