Book Review: Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice

Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice is a young adult horror novel originally published in April 1997.  Marnie and her cousin Peter drive up to the mansion that Marnie's father rented for the summer ahead of her father.  When the cousins arrive at the mansion called Stonycraig and settle in, Marnie is nervous because she thought she saw a shadow in one of the windows.  Then, she starts hearing a woman crying late at night.  Are the stories about Stonycraig being haunted true? This is a book I originally read as a teenager, and I remember being impressed by the storyline and writing.  I recently decided to reread it as an adult to see if it was as good as I remembered.  I have to say it was phenomenal.  Well-written and unputdownable.   Even though there were parts that came back to me as I made my way through Music From The Dead , I still found it to be perfectly eerie and creepy.  There was even a little bit of romance but nothing inappropriate for a tween or teen.  The only com

Book Review: Suspect in High Heels (High Heels Mysteries, #10) by Gemma Halliday

High Heels Mysteries #10 by Gemma Halliday
One of my favorite cozy mystery book series is Gemma Halliday's High Heels Mysteries. It originally caught my eye from an email I received from BookBub.com. The first five books could be bought in a bundle for the amount of 99 cents, and the synopsis included a description of the main character being a fashion designer for shoes. After reading the first book in the series, Spying in High Heels (High Heels Mysteries, #1), I was hooked. When I heard that the latest edition, Suspect in High Heels (High Heels Mysteries, #10), was coming out on October 1, 2019, I could hardly wait.

Suspect in High Heels (High Heels Mysteries, #10) exceeded my expectations. Both of the people I suspected of being the killer (one more than the other) were not the killer. Usually one of the people I suspect is correct, but I definitely was in the wrong this time. I love the main character, Maddie Springer, and how she always seems to get herself in trouble and that her husband is so forgiving of her getting so entangled in these cases. Although, he is never happy about it at the time.

I'm not sure what it is about this series, but Gemma Halliday always sucks me into these books. They are always an enjoyable read, and I always have trouble putting it down. Every time a new edition comes out in the High Heels Mysteries, I say it is my new favorite in the series, and I can honestly say that yet again with the latest installment. I never want this series to end!

If you're looking for a great book to read during your next vacation, then I definitely recommend Suspect in High Heels (High Heels Mysteries, #10) by Gemma Halliday. I gave it five out five stars.

Synopsis of Suspect in High Heels:  When a celebrity appraiser at the is found murdered at the "Antiques Extravaganza" that Maddie Springer is attending with her mother, Maddie finds her smack dab in the middle of the investigation when she is trying to clear her mother's good name of being accused of the death.
