    I loved it!

    Number four 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, which is a bonus and not a distraction from either story. The regular cast of characters are so endearing and I love to read about them! I especially enjoy the senior citizens, 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.

    Super!

    family-dynamics, friendship, mystery, murder, murder-investigation, situational-humor, verbal-humor ***** A cozy mystery set in the Midwest wraps itself around a prewar British cosy mystery being written by the main character who operates a bookstore. Samantha is a widow like her Nana Jo and they are tasked with gathering their friends to put a wedding for the mom in the three weeks before Christmas. Enter the in laws, a villainous wedding planner, a pair of orphans, and an inept small town policeman. The mystery novel she is writing rather mirrors the current goings on and helps Samantha see the clues and red herrings more clearly. Plenty of laughs, too! I loved it and stayed up to finish it! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you for introducing me to a new author!

    The best one to date!

    Samantha’s mother, Grace, is getting married on Christmas Eve and tis the season for murder! With three weeks to plan the wedding with the wealthy beau, there is a family get together to bring both families together and a gift from Grace’s future sister in law is the services of a wedding planner. Turns out the wedding planner isn’t seeing the same vision os Grace, but she’s more than ready to spend the groom’s money freely. When the groom finally puts his foot down with the wedding planner after a furious confrontation, her body is found the next morning. Sam, Nana Jo, and the gang are raring to solve the murder before the wedding and there’s not much time left. 

This book was the best in the series so far. The family dynamics are captured well and I think everyone can relate to them. Also the next installment in the historical mystery series that Sam writes mirrors things to some extent and was a solid story within the story. It gives a great view of how a cozy author will bring some of the goings on in their own life into their writing and take some artistic liberty with it. ENJOYABLE on all fronts. A great twofer!

    I liked it.

    Through NetGalley, I received a free copy of WED, READ & DEAD (Mystery Bookshop Mysteries Book 4) by V.M. Burns in exchange for an honest review. Samantha Washington is delighted with Harold Robertson, the lovely man her mother is marrying; however, she’s less than delighted with the couple’s decision to have the wedding almost immediately. No one is pleased with the snotty wedding planner Harold’s sister-in-law foists upon the couple. Harold, especially, is incensed with the wedding planner’s rude and condescending behavior toward Samantha’s sweet mother. Though Samantha and family joke that Harold is furious enough to throttle the woman, it’s no laughing matter when the woman is later found strangled. Sam, Nana Jo, and their coterie of senior sleuths swing into action to keep Harold from being arrested for the murder. As usual, Samantha works through the events surrounding her by penning a new mystery novel centering around the wedding of Lady Daphne Marsh to Lord James Browning. I enjoyed this novel. I adore Nana Jo and the family dynamic. The people surrounding the core characters are wonderful in their own right. The more time I spend with the character, the more time I want to spend with them. I recommend this novel to fans of the series, fans of cozy mysteries with themes related to books, weddings, orphans, sassy seniors, and doggies. #WedReadDead #NetGalley

    Art Imitates Life in This Episode

    This is the fourth book of this series. As in the prior episodes, the reader is getting 2 mysteries in one as our heroine solves a mystery in her life, she is also writing a British country mystery that the reader also gets to enjoy. Both stories are fun to read. The plots and their execution are very entertaining. There is a lot going on in both stories but they are never confusing. I have enjoyed reading this series and it is one of my favorites. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.
