Review – Criminal Confections

Criminal Confections by Colette London

criminal-confectionsPublished: January 2015

Book Blurb: Hayden Mundy Moore is an expert on everything chocolate, helping clients develop new products and revamp recipes until they’re irresistible. But sometimes, a dash of murder finds its way into the mix. . .

Hayden Mundy Moore has bushwhacked through African jungles and haggled in exotic markets to find the finest cacao beans and the most flavorful blends. It’s thrilling work but rarely dangerous–until a colleague turns up dead at the exclusive chocolate-themed Lemaître resort spa in San Francisco.

Adrienne Dowling’s heart attack is blamed on an accidental overdose of the secret ingredient used in Lemaître Chocolates’ new line. Hayden can’t believe that conscientious Adrienne would make that mistake. And between chocolate body scrubs, cocoa mud baths, and a non-stop frenzy of chocolate-based treats, Hayden starts to suspect that she, not Adrienne, was the intended target. Finding a killer among the rival chocolatiers and potential suspects won’t just be satisfying–it might save her life. . .

My Review

Entertaining cozy culinary mystery that involves more chocolate than one would know what to do with! I enjoyed Hayden’s story and watching her slowly pull the clues together to figure out whodunit. I loved the dynamics with her friend Danny and adviser Travis too, and would be interested to see where those relationships go in future story lines. The story was well laid out with just enough clues to get an inkling, but not so much where you figured it out too quickly. This was the first novel in the series and I would certainly be interested in continuing with the next ones. There were also a few chocolate recipes at the end, fun touch!

4/5 Stars

I received a complimentary review copy via NetGalley. All reviews 100% reflect my honest opinion.

lockingupsantafrontcoverkindleBook Blurb:

It’s the Christmas season, and seven months since Phoebe Mercer’s life dramatically changed. She went from being an overworked legal assistant, to a CEO of a popular beauty company. She moved from the bustling big city, to a quaint seaside town. She’s gone from living with a fiancé, to living with a ghost. Yet, it seems she can’t get a grip on her new life, whether it’s getting used to being a public figure, having a Chief Operating Official who hates her, or a ghost who is just too passionate. As if things can’t get any worse, Phoebe’s friend and mentor is arrest for a horrible crime many think they were capable of committing. Except for Phoebe, and her ghost.  As Phoebe races to prove her mentors innocence, and stop the company from sinking, she must deal with a face from her past that throws her in a disarray of emotion, an unwanted visitor, and old friends who seem to have abandoned her.

Why a Beauty Company?

Thank you SO much for having me on Living With Joy! So grateful to be given a chance to share a bit about myself and my new book, on your wonderful blog.

My name’s Nikki and I am a writer from Canada. I write Cozy Mysteries and Chick Lit’s. My new release is part of my cozy mystery series that centers on an eccentric ghost and her multimillion dollar beauty company, Lavish Looks. Lavish Looks specializes in skin care, hair and body products, which in the series, are well known all over the world for their uplifting scents. Scents like Lavender, Coconut Grove, and Sweet Orange. My inspiration for the company came from two things; my obsession with The Body Shop, mostly their Brazil Nut line, and my sister. She makes her own all natural soaps, and the moment she gave me a sample of her first batch two years ago, I knew exactly what my characters lives would centre around.

Natural and delicious smelling beauty products.

Before the first book was published in the series, I had to ‘research’. I had so much fun when I was researching how a beauty company is run, or how their scents are invented. Not only did I get tons of samples from dozens of beauty companies, like the Body Shop and L’occitane En Provence, but I was able to score some behind the scenes videos on how they run their factories and headquarters! I was introduced to the way they test their products and market them. I was surprised to discover how so much ‘power marketing’ by these companies is now relied on whether famous beauty bloggers around the world give it a ‘pass!’ or ‘fail!’, but should I have been? It is the power of social media after all.

I’ve always been a fan of sweet scents, and delicate beauty products. Hair masks, face masks, homemade bars of soap… I think they are the perfect way to pamper yourself after a stressful day, and I think they are fantastic gifts to give friends and family. I absolutely love how our world is changing and how more people are getting cautious about what they put on their skin. It’s making a great difference in how these companies create their products.

Edie Edwards, the fun-loving ghost in the series is beyond proud of her company Lavish Looks. And she makes sure her human companion, Phoebe Mercer, knows it. Even beyond the grave Edie is still there to guide Phoebe into making the right choices with the products and company. Locking Up Santa takes the two of them through a situation that would be a nightmare for any beauty company; a failing scent. A scent they spent thousands and thousands of dollars on, that comes out smelling like a rip off of Mr.Clean with extra bleach. Toss this in with a series of scary break and enters in their gorgeous hometown, and you have a rather dramatic Christmas novel! Though it was fun to write, it was also torture for someone who loves hair masks and lotions.

I’m curious; do you have any favorite beauty products? What are they?

Comment below and let us know.

Review – Get Witch or Die Trying

Today I’m excited to share my review on the latest novel by Tonya Kappes in the Spies and Spells series called Get Witch or Die Trying. It’s the third book in the series, and if you haven’t read them yet you’re seriously missing out! In addition to my review, I’ve also got an exclusive guest post from the author!!

Get Witch or Die Trying by Tonya Kappes

get-witch-or-die-tryingPublished: October 24, 2016

Book Blurb: When an arrest goes wrong and the perp ends up dead, SKUL special agent Mick Jasper is under investigation and stripped of his badge. SKUL hires Maggie Park not only because of her ability to blend in with society when undercover but her uncanny ability to know things she shouldn’t. Little does the agency know that Maggie is a witch and has special powers she uses to her advantage to clear special agent Jasper’s name and hopefully bring the real killer to justice before the killer figures out who she really is.

My Review

These books just keep getting better! This was my favorite one so far. ‘Get Witch or Die Trying’ continues Maggie Park’s life as she works on her Life’s Journey and helps SKUL while blending in and solving crimes and mysteries.

Filled with murder, mystery, mayhem and it has a very surprising ending in more ways than one! I can’t wait to read the next one! I loved the holiday theme that was added to the mix, which helped jump-start my holiday spirit.
5/5 stars for another spellbinding story

I received a complimentary Advanced Review Copy from the author as part of her Blogger Review Krew Team. All opinions are 100% my own.

Guest Post – written by Tonya Kappes

I don’t know about you, but Halloween is almost here! As soon as October 1st rolls around on the calendar I’m pulling out all the pumpkins, skulls, and ghosts out of my attic. I even had a vampire butler that holds my candy bucket for the trick or treaters!
My butler is a hoot and a half!

About a week before Halloween, I make sure that I head home to my parents house where they live a couple of hours away from me, and we carve pumpkins! Now…I do have four boys. At least I call them boys and they are really men now. . .but that’s a whole ‘nother story! My “boys” (ages 23, 19, 19, and 17) aren’t much into carving but my parents are!

I’m not sure if they really enjoy it, but I’m their little girl and I LOVE it! I bring all the tools and we have so much fun!

What about you? Do you love carving pumpkins? Leave a comment and one lucky winner will be chosen to win a $5 Amazon Gift Card!

When it comes to Halloween, my reading is no different! I love to read holiday novels and I’m beyond thrilled that Get Witch or Die Trying is released just in time for your Halloween pleasure!

Book Links: Goodreads | Amazon US | Amazon UK

My Review

I love being on the Kappes blogging krew team! I must say there’s nothing quite like getting early access to Tonya’s wonderful magical stories!! June Heal’s story is based in Whispering Falls, a small town tucked away in Kentucky. The Magical Cure Mystery stories are consistently filled with magic, drama, a bit of romance and a dash of murder for wonderfully baked cozy mysteries.

I haven’t had the pleasure of reading all of the novels in the Magical Cure Mystery series, but I certainly have added them all to my TBR and intend to start from the beginning soon! Regardless of how excited I am to go back to the beginning, the novels read well on their own, and this novel is no exception.

A charming Voodoo will draw you in from the get-go and won’t loosen its grip until the very end. I must say I didn’t see the answers coming in this one, as there were only a few small clues that gave an indication of what was to come. I was pleasantly surprised by not knowing until the end!

Fun Fact: I was recently out of town on a long weekend vacation to Oregon. On the drive from Portland to Bend, we passed a campsite grounds called Whispering Falls! I was so incredibly excited to see that (even though I initially thought it was a sign for a town, not a campsite). How fun to wonder what the world would be like if Tonya’s Whispering Falls truly existed!! I highly recommend you go get yourself a copy of the Charming Cure novels and get lost in the magic!!

5/5 stars for another magical cozy murder mystery from the lovely Tonya Kappes

Review – Betting Off Dead

I’m beyond excited to share that I am officially part of the Kappes Krew Blogging Team! Today I’m going to share my review of her latest release, Betting Off Dead, and some fun ways to stay involved on social media and how to enter the giveaway. Look forward to more awesome reviews and fun guest posts from Tonya in the coming months! 🙂

Betting Off Dead by Tonya Kappes

BETTING OFF DEAD MINI BANNERPublished: August 29, 2016

Book Blurb:
And they’re off!
Gambling on horse racing is Kentucky’s number one sport but when Kentucky Derby Thoroughbred picked to win the Derby, Rails and Nails, ends up poisoned, SKUL special agent Mick Jasper and rookie witch Maggie Park, who keeps her witch powers a secret, are called in to investigate a world of illegal gambling where a run for the roses can prove to be deadly.

Book Links: Amazon | Amazon UK | Goodreads

My Review

Although Maggie Parks may seem like an ordinary girl to the people in her town, she’s anything but… she’s a witch! Maggie’s family is a bit on the strange side, but Maggie is not your average witch. While everyone else has an animal for their familiar, she has a special car named Vinnie.  And though she works at the family diner, The Brew, Maggie is destined for greater things.

What is she meant to do with her life? Her life’s journey dictates what she’s meant to do and she’s beginning to get a feeling that it has something to do with SKUL and Mick Jasper. Or could that feeling just be her attraction to the latter rather than a necessary driving force to help the former?

There was a lot of witchy info about her witchy hour and all things witchy that were brought up during this book. I assume you pick up the full background and history on those things while reading the first novel. This novel was so much fun that I wish I had read the first book before picking this one up.

I loved this novel! It was filled with fun, chaos and a little bit of mystery; the perfect combo for a cozy mystery! I wish I had read spies and spells before this one, but it can be read alone, as Tonya does a good job of catching you up a bit. I loved Maggie’s character and all of the fiercely odd women in her family completely cracked me up. I can’t wait to see where Maggie’s life journey takes her next, and as long as Vinnie’s in the driving seat, it’s sure to be filled with lots of laughter!

Cures and trouble…
The secluded island is a perfect getaway for the charming honeymooners, especially since the only other vacationers are a wedding group. June Love’s a good romantic wedding and this one is on the beach.

Magic stirs…
June is embracing her old mortal self until the groom from the wedding party washes up on the beach …MURDERED!

My Review

This charming novel continues June’s story from Tonya’s Magical Cures Mystery series. June lives in Whispering Falls with her new husband Oscar. They’re getting ready to leave on their honeymoon and have agreed to no magic while away. Despite their promises, they can’t seem to leave the magic at home and the suspense and chaos seems to follow them there. This story is filled to the brim with magic, love and secrets. Often times when people are presented with secrets and mystery they become so focused on finding the answers, that they miss out on seeing the good and following their intuition. Sometimes the people you think you know best are not what they seem and sometimes the opposite can be true too.

This book kept me engaged throughout the entire novel, from page one down to the very end. There were twists and turns throughout the story and a fun surprise ending. This novel made me wish I had a little magical gift of my own. Who wouldn’t like the ability to snap your fingers and get what you want?! I’d love a bottle of June’s special SPF lotion made just for me! Who wouldn’t be drawn in by all of the other wonderful magical things that are written into this novel?!

I’ve only just been introduced to June’s world and although this novel can be read alone, I’m going to work my way back through to the start of the series. I can’t wait to read it from the beginning!

Fixin’ To Die by Tonya Kappes

First off, I’m excited to share that I was recently added to the Tonya Kappes Review Krew! In case you’re not familiar, Tonya Kappes is a fantastic author that’s written tons of well-loved novels. She has a group called the Review Krew that gets to read Advanced Review Copies of her novels before they’re published in exchange for honest reviews. Today I’m going to share my review on the first novel I received as part of her Krew, which also happens to be the first novel in a new series!

Fixin’ to Die – A Kenni Lowry Mystery

by Tonya Kappes

Fixin' To DiePublished: June 14, 2016

Book Blurb: 

Kenni Lowry likes to think the zero crime rate in Cottonwood, Kentucky is due to her being sheriff, but she quickly discovers the ghost of her grandfather, the town’s previous sheriff, has been scaring off any would-be criminals since she was elected. When the town’s most beloved doctor is found murdered on the very same day as a jewelry store robbery, and a mysterious symbol ties the crime scenes together, Kenni must satisfy her hankerin’ for justice by nabbing the culprits.

With the help of her Poppa, a lone deputy, and an annoyingly cute, too-big-for-his-britches State Reserve officer, Kenni must solve both cases and prove to the whole town, and herself, that she’s worth her salt before time runs out.

E-Book Links: Currently $2.99 on Amazon US| Amazon UK | Goodreads

My Review

Fixin’ To Die is the first novel in the Kenni Lowry Mystery series. Kendrick -Kenni for short- is the sheriff in a small town located in Kentucky called Cottonwood. Up till now she’s had a relatively easy job since the crime level has been pretty much non-existent since she took the job.

Thinking the lack of crime was a result of her becoming sheriff, Kenni is taken by surprise when she realizes it was all because the ghost of her grandfather was working hard to scare people from committing crimes. When someone in town is found murdered, Poppa intervenes and begins to help Kenni become the kick-ass sheriff he always knew she could be.

I’ve always been a fan of Tonya Kappes from afar, as I’ve never read any of her novels prior to this one, but kept hearing how fantastic her novels are. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I’ve finally delved into her works and I can assure you this is the first novel I’ve read but it certainly won’t be the last! I can tell that this novel is the beginning of a must-read series and I’m excited that I’ve been introduced to it from the start.

If you’re looking for a well-written exciting page-turner that’s filled with excitement and mystery, then your search is over, as this is just the thing you’ve been looking for! Kenni’s story is entertaining, humorous and compelling, with a little romance thrown into the mix. It’s the perfect recipe of crime, chaos and just the right amount of creepiness. I loved the way Poppa was written into the story, making this a cozy supernatural mystery.

There were a few surprises at the end that I didn’t see coming, though I had a hunch of who it was based on a few clues set in by the author throughout the novel. I thoroughly enjoyed Fixin’ To Die and I can’t wait to read the next one. While I’m waiting for that, you’ll find me quickly devouring Tonya’s previous novels, and from what I’ve seen, there’s quite a few to keep me busy!

5/5 Stars
