Goblin Monday (Goosebumps House of Shivers, #2)  by R.L. Stine opens with Mario Galagos vacationing with his friends and their parents in Vermont.  When Mario finds an ugly stone statue and brings it into the house, he unknowingly starts a war with goblins. Thank you, NetGalley, for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book.  I received it for free in exchange for my honest opinion. Growing up, I was a huge fan of R.L. Stine and his Fear Street series.  Having read the first book in this new series and enjoying it, I wanted to see if the second installment was as good as it's predecessor.  Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed and underwhelmed with Goblin Monday . Although the age range for this book is for children aged eight to twelve years old, I actually think it's more appropriate for kids aged six to eight years old.  As the story develops, I kept expecting something scary or suspenseful to happen, but neither of those things happen until the reader has read approxim

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.
