Feline RDP #21: Italian Feline

I have always like this one Tabby is correct.

The Cat Chronicles

Tabby

“Mrs. Human take that smelly green thing away. I had to squeeze through the window to avoid it.”

“But Tabby, today the theme for your blog is Italian and it is basil. The leaves go very well with tomatoes and cheese.”

“I am sure they do Mrs. Human, but it is not something that I like to include in my diet.”

“But today we had spaghetti for lunch, which is typical Italian food and you enjoyed the sample I gave you.”

“Oh yes, it was very good, I just had to separate the meat from the white worms. I do not eat worms.”

“But that was the spaghetti.”

“It was a dead worm. I stared at it for a while and noticed it did not move, so it must have been dead. Italians must be funny people if they eat dead white worms.”

“It is typical Italian food.”

“Are Italians…

MY REVIEW

Cottonwood, Kentucky is down to one officer, the sheriff,  Kenni Lowery. She has served the town for two crimeless years. The Dispatcher sends her a message on a walkie-talker.about the murder of the town popular Doctor. Kenni hears a strange voice is not sure it is coming from as no one is around.. This book is character driven and will hold your attention during all the twists and turns it takes. I will definitely read the next book.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from HENERY PRESS through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

My Review

The fifth installment of the Kenni Lowry series just keeps on getting better. This is the best one yet. Kenni is the sheriff of a small town, Cottonwood, Kentucky. Whenever there is a murder the ghost of the previous sheriff and Kenni’s grandfather becomes visible to her. The town is thrilled as the Mayor is getting married and his bride has the town in an uproar. Kenni is tricked into being the Maid of Honor.  Penny Lowell, a woman who has many enemies and writes negative reviews that are printed in the daily paper is found dead of an apparent heart attack. Poppy ghost shows up and Kenni knows it is murder. The twists and turns begin and it will surprise you. There a copy of side themes to add spiced to the tale. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and series.

This series is a winner. –Denise Swanson

Ellie Avery planned a perfect family getaway: fun in the sun on Florida’s Gulf Coast, with a side visit to the eBay vendor who’d mistakenly sent her the wrong handbag. But what should have been a simple exchange turns into a fatal transaction when Ellie discovers Angela495 floating face-down in her pool.

With some savvy snooping, Ellie learns that Angela’s dangerous double life included blackmail, compromising photos, and a scandalous secret that threatens a local celeb. When a kidnapping shatters her family’s safety, Ellie leaves the white sands behind to face down a killer whose warm Southern charm masks a cold, cold heart.

Includes great tips for super family vacations!

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY MIDNIGHT SNACKS ARE MURDER by Libby Klein

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!

This is second book in the Poppy McAlister series. I am looking forward to reading it. Gluten free recipes are included


PUBLISHED DATE – July 31

PUB!ISHER – Kensington Books

NETGALLEY SAYS:

 ” When her sleepwalking aunt is accused of committing murder, Poppy McAllister finds out there’s no rest for the weary . . .

 Between trying to get her gluten-free baking business off the ground and helping her aunt remodel her old Victorian into the Butterfly House Bed and Breakfast in Cape May, New Jersey, Poppy is ready to call, “Mayday!” And now Aunt Ginny—who’s a handful wide-awake—is sleepwalking on her new sleeping pill prescription and helping herself to neighbors’ snacks and knickknacks. “

The first book REUNIONS ARE MURDER

My Review

A new author for me and the first in a new series. The writing flows easy and characters are developed. The descriptions will put you into the story. The plot is different. A love triangle may be developing. The police presence is unusual and minimal.I

Poppy McAllister, a middle age suspects experiencing a pity party since the death of her beloved husband. She is pressured to attend her 25th high school reunion by 3 friends. While there, the class bully is murdered and Poppy finds her dead. A classmate, Amber who disliked Poppy heads the investigation and feels The evidence points to Poppy. Amber arrested Poppy. Aunt Ginny sends Poppy to a holistic physician who informed Poppy she must go on Paleo diet. A CASE worker for The department of welfare wants Aunt Ginny go into an assisted living home. Both these event cause Poppy to leave her pity party. The antics of Figuaro, Poppy’s cat are amusing and an add a lot to the story. I highly recommend this book.

Recipes from Poppy Kitchen are included. These are Gluten Free.

MURDER MADE TO ORDER by Lena Gregory

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!


The second installment in the All Day Breakfast series Gia Morellia worried that her cafe has zoning problem and might have to close. Marcia Steers, the President of the City council asked to see Gia. Marcia tells her she has documents that will help Gia. Marcia is found dead in a swamp before she found the papers. The sheriff suspended her boyfriend from his office. The affair goes back 20 years. The case involved the murder of a friend’s Mother. Before it ends Gia will encounter greed, revenge and police corruption. Gia romance with the Sheriff deputy continued. How does the Breakfast Cafe stay open? You feel The terror during the tornado.  

I found this book hard to rate. I would give 3.5 stars, if possible. There was an improvement over the previous book. Gia character still bothered me as her terrors seem irrational to me. I got tired of reading n to cook a breakfast. I feel it was overdone. I would recommend this book and series.
