BOOK #5

PUBLISHER POISONED PEN PRESS

DATE OF PUBLICATION DECEMBER 4, 2018

FIRST LINES 

“Art is Calling For Me” When I became a private investigator I assumed all my clients would be alive. I was wrong. Besides breaking up an illegal baby ring, I’d recently caught a murderer and solved a big case involving the mayor of Parkland’s wife. I’d also helped Camden free a ghost from a mirror. Here’s where things get peculiar. The ghost, Delores Carlyle, had been a restless spirit whose only wish was to see her daughter one last time. “

GOODREADS SAYS

“Flamboyant actor Leo Pierson’s Art Nouveau treasures have been stolen, including a one-of-a-kind Lalique glass dragonfly he claims is cursed. David Randall, 302 Grace Street’s private eye, agrees to recover the valuables before he realizes murder has raised its ugly head in the Parkland art community. Samuel Gallant of the museum board is missing, until Randall and his landlord/consultant Camden find Gallant’s body stuffed in a museum closet. When another board member suffers a fatal accident and the art critic for the Parkland Herald is attacked, Randall suspects the stolen dragonfly is indeed cursed. He investigates Richard Mason, curator of the Little Gallery, whose artwork consists of ugly mechanical sculptures, and Nancy Piper, finance manager at the Parkland Art Museum.”

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!

I read a lot of animal books and Diesel has been one of my first cats. I have found all nine books about his adventures enjoyable. I am looking forward to reading this one. The first is MURDER PAST DUE published in August 3, 2010. I have read it before I started writing reviews. I need to read it again before write a review.

“Charlie Harris and his Maine Coon cat, Diesel, are busy decking the halls for the holidays when an unexpected delivery and a shocking murder conspire to shake up the season in this all new installment of the New York Times bestselling series.

December twenty-fifth is right around the corner, and Charlie is making his list and checking it twice. He is doing his best to show some peace and goodwill toward his nosy neighbor Gerry Arbitron, a real estate agent who seems to have designs on his house (and maybe on him, as well), while preparing for a very important role, indeed–his first Christmas as a grandfather.”

A FORGOTTEN PLACE  by Charles Todd

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!


I have long been a fan of the Bess Crawford series and the tenth book did not disappoint. The war was over and Bess is assign to an amputee ward. Where she met Captain Hugh and his men. They all had missing legs or arms as they had been ambushed in the last few days of the war. It wipe out most of the men in platoon. Bess becomes found the men who were from Welch and work in the cold mines.They can no longer work in the mines and there no other jobs for them. Bess on a ten day furlough travels to the Welsh village. She is dismay to find all but two are dead and Captain Hugh has moved to the Welsh coast to live with his sister-in-law.

She travels to the village and becomes strand there. Bess must know the answer to several questions in order to leave the village. What is village’s secret? Who is beating up the men? Why won’t the village call in the police/army? The ending was tricky and it caught me unaware. I highly recommend this book and and series.

CRY WOLF by Annette Dashofy

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!


The seventh book in the Zoe Chambers series is one of the best I have read. There so many turns in this story it was hard to put down. Give yourself plenty of time to read it. Pete is dealing with an officer who had to kill a person in order to save Zoe’s life and is unable to handle it. The rest of his small police force is serving two shifts and he has hired a woman officer. On a visited his father he meets his FTO who is later murdered. His office has an ongoing problem with neighbors.

Zoe has been promoted to acting corner as her boss is in the hospital. She gets a letter informing her she has an older brother. She is thrill to become acquainted with him. Pete has reservations about the brother’s motives.

The author has skillfully brought varied themes into one story. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AS SERIES.

THE POST CAROUSEL by Juliet Blackwell

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!


I almost didn't request this book but I am glad I did. I found I got so involved in the storyline, I couldn't put it down instead read far into the night. I had problems reading the parts of the Nazis occupation of France. I felt that Ms. Blackwell did an outstanding job of blending the three-time periods so the story flew together.
Cady Drake is recovering from the death of her mentor and agrees to accept a job in Paris of photographing the carousels of Paris. The story begins in the 1990's of a young girl desire to learn from a master carver and the difficult time she had to endure because of her sex. Cady is fascinated with the carousels. She learns of a rundown Château Clement, in the province decides to see it before she returns home. Candy meets the owner of an elderly man who prefers to be left alone. Will, she convinced him to let her see the Clement carousel? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book.
