Nutmeg Street: Egyptian Secrets (A Botanic Hill Detectives Mystery, #1) by Sherrill Joseph

This is the first of a series with an already established group of friends who solve mysteries. They are official, with a name and credentials and past cases that we are only given glimpses of. The past will probably be referenced in future books in more detail to provide a better picture. The pair of… Continue reading Nutmeg Street: Egyptian Secrets (A Botanic Hill Detectives Mystery, #1) by Sherrill Joseph

Murder Makes Scents by Christin Brecher

Belinda Blake is happy with her new life in the Carriage house, but things back home are… Continue reading Belinda Blake and the Birds of a Feather by Heather Day Gilbert

An English Murder by Cyril Hare

This is yet another entry into my ongoing page for the #BritishCrimeClassicsChallenge. I am very sorry to note that I do not remember which blog I got this recommendation off of. It was Christmas list, but when I saw this author had multiple books available right in my local library, I had to check it out.… Continue reading An English Murder by Cyril Hare
