#Book #Review: Tagged for Death (A Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mystery, Book 1) by Sherry Harris


From the Back Cover of the Paperback:

Starting your life over at age thirty-eight isn't easy, but that's what Sarah Winston finds herself facing when her husband CJ runs off with a 19-year-old temptress named Tiffany. Sarah's self-prescribed therapy happily involves hitting all the garage and tag sales in and around her small town of Ellington, Massachusetts. If only she could turn her love for bargain hunting into a full-time career.

ONE MAN'S JUNK IS ANOTHER MAN'S TREASURE

But after returning from a particularly successful day searching for yard sale treasures, Sarah finds a grisly surprise in one of her bags: a freshly bloodied shirt…that undoubtedly belongs to her ex, CJ, who now happens to be Ellington's chief of police. If that's not bad enough, it seems Tiffany has gone missing. Now it's up to Sarah to prove that her cold-hearted ex is not a cold-blooded killer…

BUT FINDING THAT TREASURE CAN BE MURDER.

Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages

My Review:

Sarah Winston is newly divorced from a former military man-turned police chief.  When Sarah found out her husband CJ Hooker, cheated on her with one of the military recruits, she packed her stuff and moved out.  What Sarah didn't do is move on, which is very evident with every page turned.  

To help soothe the pain, Sarah continues to volunteer at the thrift store in the town of Ellington, MA, where she, and CJ, live separate lives.  The store just happens to be on the Air Force Base she once lived with CJ before he became the town's Chief of Police.  Part of her routine includes collecting unsold merchandise from garage sales to take to the thrift store.  Sarah makes a gruesome discovery in one of the bags she picked and shortly thereafter, it's learned that CJ's mistress has gone missing.

 As the disappearance is investigated, all fingers point to CJ in the disappearance and possible murder of Tiffany.  Except, Sarah knows he didn't do it.  CJ is many things but a murderer isn't on that list.  She then takes it upon herself to figure out who's trying to frame CJ and why.  Along the way, Sarah rattles the closet doors of some townsfolk that would prefer to leave their skeletons hidden, both complicating and endangering her sleuthing.

What follows is a continual run of back luck for Sarah.  She discovers bloody evidence in a garage sale donation, is the one to find human bones outside of the thrift store, and the list goes on and on.  Not only does it look like CJ is being set up, whomever is orchestrating these events is making sure that Sarah is suffering right along with CJ.  

This book appealed to me because I love garage sales and what better cozy mystery than one based around them.  Such a new and unique idea really.  The world building is creative and realistic.  Sarah's protagonist character does a lot of foolish things in Tagged for Death.  She gets involved in events that could clearly implicate her or CJ or she goes digging into personal lives of people she shouldn't.  

The writing is good but some of the plot details are distracting.  The harassment that Sarah faces at the hands of the local police force is aggravating.  It started long before the disappearance of Tiffany yet is explained away at the end of the novel in a bit too convenient way.  I understand Pernell's stance on a few things but his threatening undertone toward a woman who was NOT responsible for the ending of her marriage was a bit over the top.  

Tagged for Death is a good cozy mystery that is full of twists, turns, distractions, and red herrings.  There are suspenseful, humorous, and heartbreaking moments that are sure to keep the reader engaged. The author sets up many of the characters as the potential suspect and expertly pulls the tablecloth out from underneath them without spilling the truth.  The ending is a two-fold surprise that left my mouth gaping.  I wasn't expecting what happened and look forward to Book 2, The Longest Yard Sale.

Paperback review copy courtesy of my bookshelf.  This is a Barnes & Noble brick-and-mortar store purchase.

About the Book:

The chase is on!

After the destruction of the Diamond Jubilee, Agents Eliza D Braun and Wellington Books are in hot pursuit of Dr Henry Jekyll. While he continues his experiments on the aristocracy of Europe, he leaves a trail of chaos and despair in his wake. However when Eliza and Wellington run him to ground in India, they are forced to come face to face with ghosts from the past, and the realities of empire.

Meanwhile Brandon Hill and Bruce Campbell travel deep into Russia hunting down ingredients to save Queen Victoria's life. Amid the cold they uncover a new threat from the revitalized House of Usher.

All the agents of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences will find their allegiances in question, and their mettle tested as a new dastardly era of international intrigue dawns.

Read an Excerpt:

Chapter One: Wherein a Delightful Luncheon Is Cut Short

Wellington Thornhill Books took in a deep breath, sparing just a moment to collect his wits. Otherwise he risked not living to see dessert.

The archivist-turned-agent dabbed at the corner of his mouth with his snow-white napkin, and draped it carefully over his lap. Outside the window the gleaming Atlantic rolled under their ocean liner the African Sunset, but that was not the view that held his attention. His focus remained with the dandy in front of him. Since their first meeting, the bombastic Lord seemed rather taken with the sound of his own voice, which was why the change in his dining companion's demeanour came as such a shock.

If an attack should come Wellington still had his dinner knife and fork. He was also in possession of a glass of wine, half finished—a pity to use, since it was a delightful vintage and paired perfectly with the duck—that could blind his opponent for a few valuable moments.

His lunch date kept a hard glare fixed on him, the monocle digging into the folds of his cheek. Rather unexpected to Wellington, Lord Hieronymus Featherstone had run out of things to say, and was now giving him his undivided attention.

Wellington thought he had shown unending fortitude while being subjected to Featherstone's eternal droning on about his recent excursions across Africa, India, and Siam. He now knew to what far reaches Lord Featherstone had traversed in the name of Her Majesty—which might be useful.

Yet now Featherstone sat before him, no longer the awful, droning chatterbox. The gentleman's jaw twitched as he kept his ice-chip blue eyes trained on Wellington, demanding satisfaction.

"Well," the lord spoke, his voice booming from his barrel chest, "answer me, man."

Sod it, Wellington thought as he picked up his glass. At the very least, I will finish this excellent wine.

"You obviously mentioned her name during one of your riveting stories when crossing the Serengeti," Wellington replied, taking in a good, long sip of his wine.

"My dear Bernice does not care for heat."

"Then perhaps you mentioned her joining you as you crossed the Canadian Rockies?"

"Nor does she care for the cold."

Mrs. Bernice Featherstone did not sound either lovely or agreeable, a perfect match for her husband, it seemed.

Nodding in resignation, Wellington cast another quick glance across the table, taking note of the knife and fork. Both hardly suited for close-quarter combat, but still useful. "M'lord, we could speculate for the entirety of the afternoon on how I came to know your lovely wife's name, but why don't we just cut this clever banter short and try a more direct form of engagement."

"Which would be?"

"The truth." With a final dab at of the corners of his mouth, Wellington dropped the napkin on the table, swiping up the fork and placing it in his lap. He positioned the silverware for a quick thrust as he began. "Lord Featherstone, it is no lie when I say your company has been enlightening. I have genuinely enjoyed our spirited and scintillating discussions whilst we journey around the Ivory Coast. However, to say we 'met you' by chance would be disingenuous." His grip tightened on the fork as he said, "My associate and I have been tracking you since your boarding in Conakry."

About the Authors:

Philippa (Pip) Ballantine

Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Philippa has always had her head in a book. For this she blames her father who thought Lord of the Rings was suitable bedtime reading for an eight year old. At the age of thirteen she began writing fantasy stories for herself.

She first earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Political Science and then a Bachelor of Applied Science in Library and Information Science. So soon enough she found herself working in the magical world of libraries where she stayed for over a decade.

Her first professional sale was in 1997, and since then she has gone on to produce mostly novel length fiction. In 2006 she became New Zealand’s first podcast novelist, and she has voiced and produced Weaver’s Web, Chasing the Bard, Weather Child and Digital Magic as podiobooks. Her podcasts have been short listed for the Parsec Awards, and won a Sir Julius Vogel award.

Philippa is the author of the Books of the Order series with Ace- Geist and Spectyr and Wrayth out now, and Harbinger to follow. She is also the co-author of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series with Tee Morris. Phoenix Rising debuted in May 2011 and The Janus Affair came out in May 2012. She also has the Shifted World series with Pyr Books, with the first book Hunter and Fox out now.

When not writing or podcasting, Philippa loves reading, gardening, and whenever possible traveling. With her husband, Tee and her daughter, she is looked after by a mighty clowder of three cats.

Tee Morris

Tee Morris began his writing career with his 2002 historical epic fantasy, MOREVI The Chronicles of Rafe & Askana. In 2005 Tee took MOREVI into the then-unknown podosphere, making his novel the first book podcast in its entirety. That experience led to the founding of Podiobooks.com and collaborating with Evo Terra and Chuck Tomasi on Podcasting for Dummies and its follow-up, Expert Podcasting Practices for Dummies. He won acclaim and accolades for his cross-genre fantasy-detective Billibub Baddings Mysteries, the podcast of The Case of the Singing Sword winning him the 2008 Parsec Award for Best Audio Drama. Along with those titles, Tee has written articles and short stories for BenBella Books’s Farscape Forever: Sex, Drugs, and Killer Muppets, the podcast anthology VOICES: New Media Fiction, BenBella Books’ So Say We All: Collected Thoughts and Opinions of Battlestar Galactica, and Dragon Moon Press’ Podthology: The Pod Complex.

Tee brought all these skills to the award-winning Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series which he wrote with his wife, Pip Ballantine. When he is not writing, Tee enjoys life in Virginia alongside Philippa Ballantine, his daughter, and three cats.

by JoAnne Keltner.

Follow the tour to meet wonderful bloggers, read reviews of the book, and meet the author.


Book Information:

Title: Goth Girl Virgin Queen

Author Name: JoAnne Keltner

Genre(s): Young Adult Paranormal

Length: Approx. 298 pages

Release Date: December 3, 2015



Calling Jackie Turov psychic makes her cringe. But Jackie’s no normal seventeen-year-old. She picks up emotions from people and objects like a freak. The emotions make her sick, and the guilt she feels for lying to her church when she was twelve causes her to deny her psychic abilities.

So Jackie goes goth to make others stay away from her and forget her past. But her past is soon resurrected when her jealous friend Trish invites a demon, a persecutor of healers, to steal away Jason’s love for Jackie. The demon causes Jackie to be bullied for the lie she told and puts her best friend, Jason, in danger.

Jackie must learn how to use her gift to protect Jason and herself and to heal the negative energies of those around her. To do so means she must overcome her guilt and accept who she is before the demon claims her soul.

Read an Excerpt:

The medicine cabinet mirror—dotted with rust and turning gray—made the powder foundation on Jackie’s face look ashen and her jet-black hair, blurry. She looked like a shadow of a girl. She smeared black lipstick on her lips and shook out her shoulder-length hair. Her straight-cut bangs veiled her mascara-lined eyes, and the layered ends of her hair stuck out in defiant wisps.

Some of the kids at school—the ones she didn’t hang out with—called her Goth Girl. Some, whose memories wouldn’t die, called her VQ for Virgin Queen.

Jackie preferred Goth Girl, to be one of the living dead, to be numb to the emotions that plagued her. But this was what she wanted, not what she got.

Goth Girl or Virgin Queen, she was a freak, absorbing the emotions around her like a sponge. Sometimes the emotions made her sick. Sometimes they made her see things.

Because of this, she kept to a tight-knit group of goth friends—Jason, Zeta, and Trish—and avoided social activities. She attended high school only because Mom wouldn’t let her homeschool. Mom was afraid she’d hang with Babu all day, making piroshki and doing needlepoint instead of studying. Jackie, afraid of what life offered a freak like her beyond high school, had to admit that hanging with Babu all day was tempting.

Typically, Fridays were movie nights for Jason and her, but tonight would be different. Tonight, she’d subject herself to a hodgepodge of emotions from crowds and rides and the very ground she’d walk on to protect Jason. For this, she would need physical and spiritual strength, which she sought from Babu these days.

Babu’s door was cracked, and Jackie slowly pushed the door open. “Babu?”

The room smelled of beeswax and down. A candle burned on the shrine on the dresser. The flickering flame animated the icon of the Virgin of Vladimir and cast shadows across the picture of Babu, Grandma, Mom, and Jackie. Although Babu didn’t speak English, and Jackie didn’t understand much Russian, Jackie knew Babu kept that picture on her shrine to pray for Grandma, who passed away several years ago; for Mom, who divorced Dad; and for the girl who saw the Virgin when she was twelve—for the girl she had become as a teen.

Babu sat in bed, a country quilt spread over her legs, her thumb pressed against a knot of her prayer rope, her head bowed sleepily, and her lips wording prayers.

“I wanted to say goodbye,” Jackie whispered.

Babu crossed herself and then smiled at Jackie, her gold eyetooth shining from the light of the bed-stand lamp. She patted the empty space beside her. “Sadees.”

Jackie sat down beside Babu at the edge of the bed and took Babu’s hand in hers. Babu’s hand was warm and knotted with arthritis. Jackie rubbed her thumb over the bumps on Babu’s knuckles; her black fingernails were a sharp contrast to Babu’s flour-white skin.

She wasn’t afraid to touch Babu’s hands and absorb her emotions. Jackie got a good feeling from her. Babu filled Jackie’s inner vision with white light. She renewed her spirit. And this is what Jackie needed for the commitment she had made for tonight.

Kooda eedyosh?” Babu asked.

“I’m going out,” Jackie said as if Babu understood her. This is how they communicated: Babu telling her stuff she couldn’t understand, Jackie telling Babu stuff she couldn’t understand. Somehow they carried on fine this way.

Eedyosh sdroozyamee?”

“I’m going with Jason.”

Babu rubbed the top of Jackie’s hand and ran her thumb over black fingernails. “Fsyevo kharoshevuh,” she said in a comforting tone and gently squeezed Jackie’s hand. Then she cupped her hands around Jackie’s jaws and pulled her forehead to her lips. Jackie imagined Babu’s kiss imprinted on her forehead and carrying Babu’s blessings and love with her tonight.

Book Review & #Giveaway ~ Murder Most Finicky (A Pawsitively Organic Mystery, Book 4) by Liz Mugavero

Welcome to my review for Murder Most Finicky


by Liz Mugavero


Book Information:

A Pawsitively Organic Mystery
4th in Series
Cozy Mystery
Kensington (December 29, 2015)
Mass Market Paperback: 352 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1496700179
E-Book ASIN: B00VQFKGGG


About the Book:

The dog days of summer have arrived in the small town of Frog Ledge, Connecticut, and business is booming for Kristan “Stan” Connor. Her Pawsitively Organic pet food has even caught the attention of celebrity pastry chef Sheldon Allyn, who helps Stan open a fancy pet pastry shop in Frog Ledge. A partnership is born, and Sheldon invites Stan to Newport, Rhode Island, for an appreciation weekend he’s hosting for all his independent chefs. But the gourmet getaway turns sour when one of the chefs turns up dead, and a second one goes missing…

As Stan tries to figure out who had a recipe for murder, the pool of suspects expands. And if she can’t sniff out the culprit soon, this killer may just serve up a second helping of murder…

Includes Gourmet Pet Food Recipes!

My Review:

Here are links to my reviews of the first 3 books in the series:

Book 1 ~ Kneading to Die:


Book 2 ~ A Biscuit, A Casket:

Book 3 ~ The Icing on the Corpse

Just as Stan has finally acclimated to the town of Frog Ledge she gets pulled to Rhode Island for an event with Sheldon Allyn, a renowned pastry chef.  Stan caught his eye with her Pawsitively Organic pet food business and he now wants to collaborate with her on a new fancy shop in Frog Ledge.  Her organic pet treats are all the rage and everyone wants them. She's still not positive about Sheldon but his name will catapult her business into every home in the nation and beyond a whole lot faster than doing her own PR work.  

  We meet a whole slew of new characters in Book 4 since Murder Most Finicky takes place almost entirely outside of Frog Ledge.  Sheldon Allyn has pulled together a crackerjack team of popular chefs to his home.  In just a few days, this group of chefs will be preparing for a ritzy cooking event for some potential financial backers.  The only problem?  One of the most widely known attendees winds up dead in Sheldon's yard and another one disappears shortly after the discovery.

Stan then starts piecing potential clues together to figure out who among those at Sheldon's is capable of murder.  The faster she can figure it out, the less likely that she'll be the next chef to disappear.  It is during her sleuthing that some of the regulars make an appearance but from the sidelines of Frog Ledge mostly.  We do get to see a different side of Jessie, the sister of Jake, Stan's boyfriend.  If you've read the series in order then you'll know that sometimes there is no love lost between Stan and Jessie.  It does help, though, that Jessie is a cop.... 

The twists and turns in Murder Most Finicky will definitely keep the reader guessing. There are several people that Stan is forced to be around that fit the bill of murder suspect.  Pastry chefs are very catty, competitive, and have no problem stabbing others in the back - and literally it seems, too.  Every time someone is suspected, the author has written the case so well that you can't help but believe you've figured out who was behind the murder. The perfect murder mystery, whether it's a cozy novel or not, is the author's ability to not give away any clues to the actual person involved. I find that Liz Mugavero does just that in all of the books in this series thus far. 

Book 4 is a wonderful cozy mystery that is fast paced and totally engages the reader. The plot is pretty solid and very unique. I love the organic pet food angle, giving this series a nice change of pace. I'm a huge fan of cozy mysteries, especially if there are animals involved in some positive way. 

I love the animal rescue plugs that are inserted throughout the book. My husband and I have a dog we rescued from the local humane society 5 years ago. We also have 2 cats, ages 10 and 11, that he rescued off of the street when they were just babies. One kitten was tossed in a ditch and left to die when he found her. 

The Pawsitively Organic Mystery series is perfect for lovers of cozies!

Praise:

MURDER MOST FINICKY is another exciting installment to one of my favorite cozy mystery series.

I really enjoyed this book it had so much adventure, lots of questions and kept me thoroughly entertained.

The action started right from the very first page and continued with the collection of quirky characters that added to the appeal of the book.

Meet the Author:


Liz Mugavero has been writing stories since she could hold a pen. Before that, she would tell them to anyone who would listen (not many at the time). After deciding early on she would write books for a living, she practiced by writing bad, angst-filled poems, short stories and even a storyline for a soap opera–all by age 15. She never wavered from her goals despite all the usual questions including, “So are you going to be an English teacher with that degree in English?” or, “That writing thing sounds nice, but how are you REALLY going to make a living?”

She went on to get a master’s in writing and publishing and spent time in journalism, PR, and presently, corporate communications. And she’s confident this writing thing IS the way to make a living.

Aside from writing, she loves animals (has a houseful), the beach, reading other writers’ masterpieces and Starbucks coffee.

Read an Excerpt from Wickedly They Dream:

Slammed onto the altar with no regard for how much pain it caused her, Jordan’s arms and legs were spread and tied. She immediately searched for traces of awareness in her mom’s face. Even in the dimness, she spied a slash of blue peeping from Seeley’s half-closed lids. A cloaked person, appearing more like the grim reaper, breezed to the altar. The figure shoved Seeley aside and bowed over Jordan.

Shadowed by the figure, Jordan squinted, attempting to recognize him. Peering into the hooded black abyss, a bone-searing weakness overcame her, as if the thing was draining the life out of her body. Her heart revved to a phenomenal rate, like a Ferris wheel gone haywire. Then the pain came. She moaned. Her insides twisted like a rag mop. The grim reaper drew his cloaked arm over her. She recoiled as skeletal fingers splayed within inches of her heart.
