Death by Chocolate Marshmallow Pie review

This is the sixth book in the Death by Chocolate Mysteries by Sarah Graves, and I’ve enjoyed it since its beginning as well as drooling over the yummy chocolate concoctions that Ellie and Jake came up with. The title represents a special pie Jake was working on despite her extreme dislike of marshmallows. That’s a seriously good friend!

Death by Chocolate Marshmallow Pie (A Death by Chocolate Mystery #6)Death by Chocolate Marshmallow Pie by Sarah Graves
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was worried there wasn’t gonna be another book in this series, so I was really happy to see this when it came to NetGalley. I’ve followed this series since its beginning and was glad to read more of Jake and Ellie’s crazy adventures and narrow escapes. Life with those two is never, ever boring!

Jake was worried her checkered past had come back to bite her with the latest murder, then when the bodies started piling up, things got clearer. I loved the little side stories in this book and now I feel totally satisfied after reading this book and all the many loose ends that got neatly packaged up, one of which was a little bittersweet. If for some reason the series does end here, I think I’m good with it. Sure, I’d love to read more about these amazing characters, who wouldn’t? But just in case it ends, I felt like everything was in a super place! Don’t miss this latest installment available this coming Tuesday, April 25, 2023!

A Curious Incident review

This is the sixth book in the Sherlock Holmes Bookstore series by Vicki Delaney who also writes Year Round Christmas mysteries as well as the new Tea by the Sea series. As Eva Gates, she writes the Lighthouse Library. All her series are among my many favorites!

Gemma really showed a more human side than usual in this book, and I enjoyed that a lot. She was amazing taking care of Lauren and what she did at the very end was just so sweet and tissue worthy!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Who knew Gemma had it in her to be mothering type person for a girl who needed a mom right now? I thought she was pretty awesome and caring at how she took care of Lauren. The fact that Lauren was intelligent only added to it, because Gemma talked to her as if she was older, and it seemed like Lauren really enjoyed that. It was cute how Lauren took on Gemma’s English accent and some of her manner of speaking the more she hung out with her.

To back up, Gemma volunteered to watch Lauren when her mom was suspected of killing her garden club rival and her aunt Irene, the town reporter was at a conference. I’m satisfied with the series in the relationship area too as Gemma and Ryan continued their dating life. Jayne and Andy had drawn closer which pleased Gemma to no end since she was always matchmaking them. I wasn’t sure about the killer until the clues started coming together at the end. I always love how Gemma’s Sherlock-like mind hones in on something and won’t let it go until she’s right.

The ending was super sweet, everything that wasn’t already explained was wrapped up, and I really hope we get to see Miss Lauren again sometime in the series! She’s really a cool kid!
