The Murderous Type (The Bookstore Mystery, #2) by Sue Minix was published on May 25, 2023 and is about a crime writer named Jen, who has taken over her friend's bookstore.  When the mayor and a local restaurateur die, Eric, a local police officer, becomes a suspect.  Jen knows she has to prove his innocence. A huge thank you goes out to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for approving me for an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Murderous Type (The Bookstore Mystery, #2) by Sue Minix.  I love Minix's first book in the series so much, I knew I had to read the sequel.  I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review. Where has Sue Minix been hiding?  She is an amazing author, and I have just fallen in love with her mystery series.  I could just gush about her talent as a writer.  This sequel virtually picks up where the first book left off.  With that being said, it can be read as a stand alone novel, and the reader won't feel like they missed anything because the a

Book Review: A Parting Shot (An Allie Cobb Mystery, #6) by J.C. Kenney

Kickboxing Crusader and Literary Agent Allie Cobb is getting married and has decided to stop sleuthing. However, when a local police officer is shot and killed, Allie decides she has to investigate one more case. Thinking the shooter has a connection to one of the officer's previous cases, Allie is beginning to think that there is another possibility that is much closer to her than she realizes in A Parting Shot (An Allie Cobb Mystery, #6) by J.C. Kenney.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and Beyond the Page Publishing for a digital version of an Advanced Readers Copy of  A Parting Shot by J.C. Kenney. I was beyond excited to read this book and give my honest review.

This particular cozy mystery is written extremely well and is a lot better than some of the others in this genre. I loved that there wasn't a lot of gore or violence. Sometimes, I just want a lighter mystery to read, and A Parting Shot fit that description for me. Such an engaging and fun read, I couldn't wait to see what would happen. I had no idea who the murderer was, but I didn't try too hard to figure it out because I just wanted to get lost in the story, which I did. 

I hope A Parting Shot (An Allie Cobb Mystery, #6) by J.C. Kenney isn't the last book in the series as I would like to read many more. With that being said, I will go back and read the other books that came before this one. Five out of five stars.
