  • Mira James

    Once I started reading I couldn’t stop until I finished reading the whole book. Please bring Mira, Mrs Bean and all the regulars back for more thrilling reading.

    I did not enjoy this book. It felt too predictable from start to finish and highly unlikely to happen in real life. I rolled my eyes through out the entire book. It jobbed around several different topic. The pacing was inconsistent. All in all, this book was not for me.

  • Wonderful and Intricate Mystery

    Wonderful and Intricate Mystery I love this book! This is the 12th in a series and stands alone well. There is a bit to much sex for a 'cozy' mystery, but the story is great! It is not too gritty or violent, just not 'cozy' subject matter. There is lots of humor to offset the dark subject matter. There is humor and wit throughout the book that will keep a smile on your face for most of the book. The reader is not exactly sure what is going on until the big reveal at the end of the book. I want to read more of this author's books in general and this series in particular. I received this ARC for free from Net Galley. This is my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fun read!

    My first foray into a Mira James mystery, and most definitely will not be my last! Jess Lourey spins a fabulous lighthearted but substantial mystery into something both humorous and fun. She has a magical way of making even the most serious of subjects, kidnapping and sex trafficking into an enjoyable read. Especially if the bad guys do get it in the end. Mira James lives in the small town of Battle Lake, Minnesota. She moved there unexpectedly when her personal world fell apart. More like escaped there, as the story goes. Mira has a special gift that she has bestowed upon the residents of Battle Lake. She finds dead bodies. And not just any dead bodies, but those related to crime. As such, Mira has developed a nose for private investigation. Only Mira isn’t licensed to do it, and sometimes she jumps in without a plan. That’s where her cohorts come in. This time around Mira finds a note hidden inside a book that was recently returned to the library where she works. There are four men’s names on the note, with some kind of cryptic numbering, and scrawled at the bottom of the note is the word “help.” Mira’s nose for trouble sniffs out a crime here, and off she goes in search of the note writer. At the same time, there is news about a teenage girl missing from a nearby town. Could the two be related? Books like this always put a smile on my face. When I need something not quite so serious, with a little bit of everything - good storytelling, fascinating characters, some romance (but not too much,) and a dab of mystery to keep it interesting - finding a series of books like this makes me smile. It’s the perfect book to throw in your bag, read before bed, or in-between chores. Since finding #12, I’m off to pick up 1-11 too. This review has been posted at BookwormishMe.com

  • Mira James is No April Fool!

    What a crazy ride Librarian and amateur PI Mira James and her good friend octogenarian Mrs. Berns go on in the snows of Battle Creek, Minnesota! They are trying to save some missing girls and uncover possible sex trafficking as well as protect the town’s reputation as a tourist mecca. Meanwhile Mira can’t decide if she loves her boyfriend Johnny, the town heartthrob or if Gary the Police Chief might have feelings for her. And an old presumed dead friend reappears to thicken the already muddled plot. Jess Lourey has again written a touching, funny, suspenseful mystery you will love. I was given an advance copy for an honest review!

    Thanks for your feedback!
