BLOG TOUR: Death In Dulwich (The London Murder Mysteries #1) by Alice Castle


I'm really excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for The London Murder Mysteries Series by Alice Castle. My Tour Stop today is focusing on the first book, Death In Dulwich. I was sent a free copy for honest review. Thank you Rachel's Random Resources and Alice Castle for letting me be a part of the tour!

Title: Death in Dulwich (The London Murder Mysteries #1)
Author: Alice Castle

Synopsis: Thirty-something single mum Beth Haldane is forced to become Dulwich’s answer to Miss Marple when she stumbles over a murder victim on her first day at work. 

To clear her name, Beth is plunged into a cozy mystery that’s a contemporary twist on Golden Age crime classics. But can she pull it off? She already has a bouncy young son, haughty cat, a fringe with a mind of its own and lots of bills to pay, as she struggles to keep up with the yummy mummies of SE21.

Join Beth in #1 of the London Murder Mystery series, as she discovers the nastiest secrets can lurk in the nicest places.
My Reading Right Now! Thoughts: This was a really fun, cozy mystery. Sometimes I forget how much I really enjoy a good cozy mystery. They have a feeling all their own. They're fun! Even though they are dealing with death, I always have a good time while reading them.
Death in Dulwich was a lot of fun to read. I enjoyed the mystery quite a lot and I enjoyed watching it all play out. Beth Haldane was a fun character to follow. I liked how she got swept up in this murder mystery. I really enjoyed a majority of the characters. The writing was really good and easy to read.
If you're a fan of Cozy Mysteries, I'd definitely say give this one a shot. It's a good time.

Review: Nailbiter, Volume 4: Blood Lust by Williamson, Henderson, Guzowski, Hill


Title: Nailbiter, Volume 4: Blood Lust
Story by: Joshua Williamson
Art by: Mike Henderson
Colors by: Adam Guzowski
Letters and Book Design by: John J. Hill
Edited by: Rob Levin
Published by: Image Comics, Inc.
Released: April 2016
Source: Library

Summary: What is going on in Buckaroo, Oregon? Why does it produce so many serial killers? Will we ever find out?
Finch's friend Carroll has finally woke up and everyone is ready to hear what happened to him. Unfortunately, he's been whisked away to a protected government location, which means our lead characters still know nothing.
There's been a string of killings in Atlanta Georgia. Could it have connections to Buckaroo?
The Nailbiter is on the lam, no one can seem to find him.
Buckaroo is still keeping it's secrets, one day we'll find them out.
My Thoughts: It's been awhile since I read Volume 3 of this series, and I found out how much I missed it. It was so easy to jump back into it. This is a really fun, horror comic. It has got the scares, it has got the secrets, it has got me hooked.
I was so so ready to finally find out what happened to Carroll, what's happening in Buckaroo, but those answers were kept just out of my reach AGAIN! I want to know so badly what's going on!!! It's like that carrot held on a string in front of a horse, so close, yet so far.
As always, I really like the artwork in this. I like the tones, the colors, it really goes well with the story.
That TO BE CONTINUED at the end was just cruel, but I knew it was coming.
If you like comics, if you like horror, I'd definitely recommend this one. I think the scares are there, the story is super interesting, and I can't wait to read more of it!

BOOKCITEMENT LEVEL 4/5
Those TO BE CONTINUED's are so, so cruel.

Reading Right Now! (170)

What I'm Reading Right Now! is...


Title: Nailbiter, Volume 4: Blood Lust
By Williamson, Henderson, Guzowski, and Hill

This is a fun, horror comic series that I started a while ago and am just now continuing. It's about this town named Buckaroo, Oregon and it's famous for the number of serial killers it produces. There's a general mystery throughout the series as to why so many serial killers come from Buckaroo. Is it something in the water? Is there something that triggers the residents?
A former officer named Finch comes to Buckaroo to help a friend who is investigating and finds that friend missing. He kinda sorta teams up with a convicted serial killer named the Nailbiter to find out what's going on in Buckaroo.
I just realized I'm reading this on Friday the 13th!!! Yikes! but appropriate.

What I Might Read Next
  

Widows (Dolly Rawlins #1) by Lynda La Plante (arc provided by BookishFirst)
Infinity (Inifinity Division #1) by Jus Accardo
A Conspiracy of Stars (#1) by Olivia A. Cole

I don't know exactly what I'll read next. I really would love to be able to read multiple books at once, but every time I try, I don't do very well. Anyway... that's what I'm Reading Right Now! What are you reading?

BLOG TOUR: Ms. Medicine by Olivia Arquette

I'm really excited to be on the Blog Tour for Ms. Medicine by Olivia Arquette. I was contacted by the Author who offered me a free copy of her book for honest review. I was super excited to read it, review it, and be included on the Blog Tour for it. Thanks Olivia for including me in on the fun.


Title: Ms. Medicine
Author: Olivia Arquette
Released: June 20, 2018
Published by: Amazon Digital Services
Source: Free Review Copy Provided by Author


Summary:  Her new career is everything she’s never dreamed of.

MS advised
Caprice Bello is broke, living in her grandparent’s basement, and in need of a new career. When a friend offers to help her land a job selling pharmaceuticals she’s reluctant, but then caves. After all, the pay is decent, the company car is free, and doctors are the nice guys. Besides, how hard could it be? Turns out, plenty.

MS beliefs
After completing a crash course in pharma sales, Caprice hits the field determined to earn a top award and luxury trip to Australia. Too bad she’s unprepared for mean doctors and even meaner coworkers. Add to that Caprice’s unrequited crush on an irresistible colleague, and suddenly her easy job is anything but.

MS adventures
Before long, Caprice experiences a series of unexpected snafus that cause her once rising sales to tank. Not only is her goal of winning the top award and trip waylaid, but her new career is in real jeopardy. Desperate, Caprice gambles on a risky strategy that will result in either glorious victory or spectacular defeat.

My Reading Right Now! Thoughts: This book was really fun. I'm really glad that I got the chance to read and review it. It introduced me to a world that I know nothing about, Pharma Sales. I got to learn a little about that, which was fun. I liked the characters, I liked the situations Caprice was put in, and I liked the humor of the book. I had a good time reading this. It's described as a chick-lit, and I do love a good chick-lit.
I'd definitely recommend this one for a read. I had a lot of fun with it. It introduced me to a world that I wasn't familiar with in a fun way.

BLOG TOUR: The Infinity Division Series Review by Jus Accardo

I am super excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for The Infinity Division Series by Jus Accardo! Thanks to Entangled Teen and Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with copies of all three books for honest review. I'm a fan of Jus Accardo's writing. Everything that I've read by her, I've liked. They've all been very addictive and fun, and this series was no different. I'd definitely say READ IT!!
The books in The Infinity Division Series are Infinity, Omega, and Alpha. Alpha just came out on July 3, 2018 sooo bingeing the whole series is what I would recommend!

 

Since this is a Series Review Tour, I'm just going to give a synopsis for the first book. That way I don't spoil anything and you get a gist of what the series is.

Infinity (#1) Goodreads  Amazon

Synopsis from Goodreads: Nobody said being the daughter of an army general was easy. But when her dad sends a teenage subordinate to babysit her while he’s away… That’s taking it a step too far.

Cade, as beautiful as he is deadly, watches Kori with more than just interest. He looks at her like he knows her very soul. And when he saves her from a seemingly random attack, well, that’s when things get weird.
Turns out, Kori’s dad isn’t just an army general—he’s the head of a secret government project that has invented a way to travel between parallel dimensions. Dimensions where there are infinite Koris, infinite Cades…and apparently, on every other Earth, they’re madly in love.

Falling for a soldier is the last thing on Kori’s mind. Especially when she finds herself in a deadly crossfire, and someone from another Earth is hell-bent on revenge… 

Omega (#2) Goodreads  Amazon

Alpha (#3) Goodreads  Amazon

Series Review: I Love it, I Love it, I Love it!! I love this whole series. It's so addictive and fun. I love the premise of this series. It's so fun and action packed. I love the romance in the books. I'm here for it. I could gush forever, but I'd imagine you'd get tired of that. I definitely recommend this series. Each book is great, there are no duds. Alpha was everything I wanted and more as a third book in this series. It's great. I'm definitely going to be reading more by Jus Accardo because she's good. I'm so glad I got to experience this series.
