The Secrets of Bones review

This is the second book in a newer series by Kylie Logan called Jazz Ramsey featuring a woman who works for probably the coolest nun on the planet at an exclusive all-girls’ school. Jazz’s passion is training cadaver detecting dogs, and as of the last book, she had gotten a new puppy from Nick, a detective that I hope she gets back together with. Puppy Wally isn’t quite trained, but his older and wiser friend Gus sniffed out a surprise in the abandoned floor of the school toward the end of the school year.

My Goodreads review:

The Secrets of Bones (Jazz Ramsey #2)The Secrets of Bones by Kylie Logan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had really enjoyed the first book in this series and when I got a chance to read and review the second, I jumped on it. I could hardly put this book down. It wasn’t so much that there were exciting actions, but I just wanted to know what was happening. I had my own theory, and part of it was right, but wow what a surprise twist toward the end! I can’t really say too much or risk giving away spoilers.

Once again, I found that I really liked the character of Sister Eileen known simply as Eileen in the book. She was the nicest and coolest nun but a firm leader at the all-girls’ school that she ran. Jazz had borrowed a retired cadaver dog to demonstrate how they found things like a tooth or a bone, things that she’d hidden. But imagine her surprise when Gus found something that she hadn’t hidden! I’m really looking forward to more books in this series!

The Scent of Murder–review

This is the first release in the new Jazz Ramsey series by longtime cozy mystery writer, Kylie Logan who a lot of readers know from her Literary League Ladies, Button Box or Ethnic Eats series. The cover may look like it’s a darker mystery, but it isn’t. The nature of Jazz volunteering to train cadaver dogs is what I imagine inspired a cover like that instead of the typical happier cover. There are some awesome characters in this book, and now I’m looking forward to the next book.

The Scent of Murder (Jazz Ramsey, #1)The Scent of Murder by Kylie Logan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I saw the darker looking cover of this book, I wasn’t really sure if I’d end up liking it, but I knew that I liked other books by this author, so I figured why not. I’m very glad I gave it a chance and didn’t judge this book by its cover–which is well-done, but doesn’t come off as cozy. The mystery wasn’t dark at all and was even a little funny in some places. It was interesting to learn about cadaver dogs and how they’re trained to track. I enjoyed these main characters a lot. They were strong and likable. Jazz was strong too and not only in her personality– and the fact that she’d had two older brothers to contend with at home came in very handy in her showdown with the killer.

I hadn’t guessed the killer until the clues started coming, and it made total sense. I’m glad that Jazz softened just a little toward Nick. He brought her the sweetest surprise at the end. I definitely want to read the next book!
