Bait and Witch review

This is the first book in a new series, Witch Way Librarian, by Angela M. Sanders, and I absolutely loved it! The characters are fun, Josie has some mad witchy skills she wasn’t quite aware of until later, and the cat Rodney is an awesome friend for Josie. I was so happy to see on Amazon that the next book comes out in August. That’s a lot better than having to wait a year, but it’s still going to be hard waiting!

Bait and WitchBait and Witch by Angela M. Sanders
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was so good that there were some spots where I couldn’t even put it down! I really liked the key players a lot and feel like Josie, Roz and Darla will become good friends. Rodney was such an awesome cat, and Josie’s powers that she discovered were pretty cool too. I loved what she could do using Rodney’s body to get the job done–it came in really handy saving someone’s life eventually.

At one point there was a random clue that made me start suspecting whodunit, and I was right, but I had no idea about all the reasons involved. The parts toward the end were suspenseful and the showdown was pretty nail biting since it somewhat followed a vision that Josie’s mom had told her she’d had of her, but with her good cat friend and assorted human friends, Josie made it through and caught the real killer. I really loved the ending, and now I’m going to have trouble waiting patiently for the next book.

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

Deadly Ride by Jody Holford review

This is the third book in the newer Britton Bay series by Jody Holford, and it’s quickly become a favorite series with a sweet town and familiar, comfortable characters. I like the addition of Sarah who has the art shop in town as Chris’s girlfriend now. I think Sam may have felt like he was being left out, since Sam and Molly are so close. Sam was definitely in his element in this book with the mystery surrounding a car show that his garage was sponsoring. I really hope there’s a Christmas book in store for this series!

Deadly Ride (Britton Bay #3)Deadly Ride by Jody Holford

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another very sweet installment in one of my favorite new cozy mystery series! I love how Molly and Sam are growing closer in each book, but it doesn’t take anything away from the mystery to hear about their romance. I can definitely handle this type of romance along with my cozy mysteries.

I had a feeling of whodunit, but as usual, I had no idea why other than an obvious reason, which all of the suspects had obvious reasons for wanting the car show co-owner dead. Molly has always been very impulsive and doesn’t do well listening to authority, so it’s a good thing that Chris the detective is also a friend of Sam’s. I think that gives him a higher tolerance of her. Chris did give her a cute birthday gift at the end. I enjoyed the part where Sam went with Molly to stake out Sarah’s art shop. She’d been having some break-ins, but barely anything had gone missing. Sam was so sweet to tag along and not ask a million questions. I’m hoping that before too long we get to hear some wedding bells for these two sleuths!

Deadly Vows–review

This is the second book in the newer Britton Bay series by Jody Holford who is normally a romance writer, but I love what she’s done with these cozy mysteries! The romance between Sam and Molly is just so sweet and right. Then there’s the murder investigation that always follows. With both of these first two books, I wasn’t able to put the book down for very long. And I was really happy to find out that the next book, Deadly Ride, will be out on October 22, 2019.

My Goodreads review:

Deadly Vows (A Britton Bay Mystery #2)Deadly Vows by Jody Holford

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Molly Owens had no idea she’d be dumped into a murder investigation after the last one was only a few months ago. Since then, she’d started dating Sam, and they were pretty much inseparable. When the celebrity chef at a wedding being held at the B&B fell over dead at her hotel room, Molly was more curious at first, but as always for someone who is a career reporter by trade, things weren’t adding up, then they started adding up.

I just love Sam’s mother. She has to be the kindest lady on the planet, since she was such a gracious host to the wedding party, especially the bride’s mom who was being a momzilla at the time. Sam’s cousin Jill is a fun addition too, and I was happy to see that Hannah had stuck around the paper as well. I love that Sam and Molly might have their little moments of unrest, but they always apologize and make up instead of letting it eat at them. The scene where Sam was telling her about wanting to surprise her by grooming her dog Tigger for her just cracked me up. I could see that slippery little dog racing around soaking everything.

It was great to be able to read an excerpt of the next book which will be set in October, and according to an Amazon search I did, it looks like it’ll be coming out this October.
