    Three hauntingly good cozy mysteries

    Haunted House Murder contains three entertaining Halloween themed cozy mysteries that are all set in Maine. They are well-written and engaging with developed characters. You can read one or all three. They can be read as standalone for those unfamiliar with the series. Death by Haunted House takes readers back to October 29, 2009 with Hayley Powell and her family. I do not know how Hayley put up with her husband, Danny. He is more of a child than her kids, but Danny was certainly entertaining. Lucy Stone is busy with work plus taking care of her house, hubby and daughter who is still at home. Then she agrees to watch Patrick. Lucy finds it challenging to keep up with a child under ten who goes to soccer and has homework. I could relate when she was trying to teach Patrick fractions (my father sat with me for hours trying to teach me). Julia gets roped into helping with a reenactment and finds herself in the middle of a real gunfire. When not looking for the killer, she is curious about the unusual problem at her mother’s house. She refuses to believe a ghost has suddenly appeared. I enjoyed all three cozy mysteries with the haunted house theme. They put me in the mood for Halloween which is such a fun time of year with the decorations and costumes. There are recipes included as well. Be prepared for a hauntingly good time with our three female sleuths in Haunted House Murder.

    Halloween is coming, let the stories commence!

    Three halloween short stories to get you in the mood for the big day. The first two were a bit similar in that they involved a suspected haunted house with new residents that were not very friendly. Both stories seemed to drag on longer than necessary. But it is the third story that was the best and enjoyable. If you’re ready to start the Fall and Halloween reading, then be sure to get this book and enjoy the third story, because it is quite enjoyable and a true cozy mystery!

    Enjoyable Halloween cozy mysteries

    I have read this trio's previous anthologies of Christmas novellas and loved them, so I was excited to see that they had written Halloween stories this time around. All the stories take place in Maine. I enjoy Leslie Meier's Lucy Stone stories. I have read her from the very beginning and my kids have grown up with Lucy's. In this outing, Patrick comes to stay with the Lucy & Bill for awhile. She enjoys her grandson but has forgotten how much work little ones are. In addition to his activities, she has to fit in her own daily activities plus solve the haunted house mystery that's popped up in Tinker's Cove. Next we have Lee Hollis's Hayley Powell, whom I adore. Her mysteries are so much fun. This story is a prequel so we get to see her when she is still married to Danny, the father of her two children. The haunted house is right next door to them and craziness ensues. The third story is Barbara Ross's Julia Snowden. This character is relatively new to me. I've only read her novellas in the Christmas anthologies, but I've enjoyed them. I will be reading all of her full length novels. This story features a haunted tour. Of course, the tour doesn't go as planned. The scenes with Clyde, the town know it all, are hilarious. I didn't guess the endings on any of the three stories. Despite the murder rates, I wouldn't mind living in any of these towns. As long as I don't tick anyone off, I'll be fine! If you are looking for Halloween stories that aren't scary, these will do the trick. You don't need to be long time readers of either series to follow along. Although if you want back stories, all three authors have several books in each of their series. Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington for the ARC. All opinions expressed are my own.
