Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore. With that being said, I had my suspicions that the "killer" was one of two people, and one of them ended up being the killer, so I was happy with my deduction.

Book Review: The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre by Elisabeth Crabtree

book review of St Valentines Day Cookie Massacre  Elisabeth Crabtree

The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre (Hatter's Cove Gazette Mystery, #1) by Elisabeth Crabtree opens with Kat Archer being assigned to cover the grand opening of Miss Dolly's Cookie Jar and Sweets Emporium  by the Hatter's Cove Gazette in Hatter's Cove, Florida. What is supposed to be an ordinary assignment, turns into a treacherous investigation when one of the employees at the 'Cookie Jar' is found dead.

What's not to like about this first book in a series? I absolutely fell in love with The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre, and I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series. Although, it's considered a cozy mystery, it has a bit of everything in the story, including a bit of humor. It was such an enjoyable read and one that I could see turned into a television series. One can hope, right?

For such a quick read, I was pleasantly surprised that the characters were as developed as they were. The writing was done in such a way that it played like a movie in my mind, and I felt like I was right there with the characters. The only negative thing I can say about The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre was that I was able to figure out who the killer was easily, but it didn't detract from the story.

Five out of five stars is what I gave The St. Valentine's Day Cookie Massacre (Hatter's Cove Gazette Mystery, #1) by Elisabeth Crabtree. I can't wait to see what the next book has in store for me. If you liked this book, the I recommend reading Spying in High Heels (High Heels, #1) by Gemma Halliday.
