  • Ringing in the new year with murder

    Sam Washington has joined her Nana Jo and friends on a bus trip to Chicago. On the way home they’ve picked up a few new passengers and one is murdered on the bus. The man in questions turns out to be a Pulitzer Prize winning author whose latest book will shock the world when he unveils the true killer of Robert Kennedy. As Sam, Nana Jo and the ladies work to figure out who the murderer is, another victim is felled. Can the ladies figure it out before one of them is next? Or will their better halves be ringing in the new year solo? A fun series with two poodles, a group of women, and the friends and family who have their backs as they try to do the right thing.

  • I loved it!

    Number five in the series does not disappoint! The main character is also a writer, so there is a bonus in that there are two mysteries to solve within the book. This is not a distraction from the main story, but a compliment. The regular cast of characters are so endearing and I love to read about them! I really enjoy the relationship between Sam and Nana Jo. As well, I enjoy Nana Jo’s friends, who are written as smart, full of life and entertaining. The mysteries are well written and kept me guessing! I look forward to reading the next in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

  • A deathly delight in a series filled with delights

    Bookmarked for Murder is at least as awesome as the other books in the Mystery Bookshop series. The plot varies greatly from book to book but the quality of the mysteries remains the sharp and the characters are real-people-great! It was the fact that this series was set in a book shop and included 2 poodles that first caught my attention, but now it is the author and her outstanding writing that keeps me coming back for all of her series. I want to visit that bookshop and meet the twins and their friends, Nana Jo and her friends and especially Sam Washington and the special guy in her life. It is evident that Ms. Burns loves poodles and has them in her life and no surprise to discover that Snickers and Oreo are based on real dogs. While the inspiration for Snickers has moved on to Doggie Heaven, there is a new darling to join Oreo's doppelganger to continue to inspire realistically precious furbabies. I requested and was delighted to receive an ARC of Bookmarked for Murder via NetGalley and will be sharing that delight will my friends and followers because I love it!

  • Enjoy!

    family-dynamics, friendship, murder-investigation, murder, situational-humor, verbal-humor, 1930s, contemporary, senior-citizens, cozy-mystery An older, lauded, self involved journalist is murdered while on a charter bus from Chicago to Michigan in current day. The bookseller is heading up the investigation with her Nana Jo and her cronies at the retirement village while using the writing of a mystery novel set in 1938 England to relax and clarify her thoughts. Both mysteries are entirely too engaging! Loved it! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • A rather unusual murder mystery

    A rather unusual murder mystery, some enjoyable aspects yet a parallel story muddled rather than clarified the main plot for me. The characters are most enjoyable, some of the domestic detail also detracted from the for me. With thanks to NetGalley, Kensington Books and the author for my free copy to review in exchange for an honest opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
