MURDER IN THE HOUSE By Veronica Heley

11415123
Ellie Quiche life changed in the last book, MURDER IN THE PARK which I have not read. I like the way this tale is changing and looking forward to following Ellie ‘s new life. Ellie is now married to Father Thomas and they are living in the Victorian mansion. Ellie has promised Diana to turned over her home for her to live. Thomas is called to a church to remove a young girl, Ursula from the vestry. She tells of a possible murder, a missing person, and a broken engagement. Ellie becomes involved as Ursula asked Ellie to return her to ring to her ex-fiance. There are twists and turns this book takes will keep you involved. I highly recommend this book and series.

ACCESSCORIES TO DIE FOR BY PAULA PAUL

35509135

In the third book featuring Irene Seligman, we are again in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Irene’s second-hand clothing shop is doing business. Her friend, Juanita Calabaza, Pueblo Indian has been arrested by the sheriff for a murder of drug lord. Juanita escapes from jail and asked Irene to help her find her son, Danny before he is killed for his part in stolen treasure. The story is told from. different viewpoints and is not very cohesive. This series should be read in order as Adelle character is developed in the book. In the first book, the other characters were fleshed out. Juanita needs more features of her character. She is detracted by only stubbornness and is having hallucinations.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from Alibi 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.
