Book Review: Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss

Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story. Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book. The slowness of the plot made it difficult to stay interested in the characters and their fate.  At one point, I didn't really care if I finished the story or not.

Book Review: Thanksgiving Dinner Death (Juniper Holiday, #2) by Leighann Dobbs

book review thanksgiving dinner death juniper holiday leighann dobbs

Thanksgiving Dinner Death (Juniper Holiday, #2) by Leighann Dobbs opens with Juniper Holiday overseeing the preparations for her Thanksgiving dinner party.  When the head police detective face plants into his food and dies, Juniper has to think fast.

The second edition of Leighann Dobbs Juniper Holiday Cozy Mystery Series definitely helped put me in the mood for the Thanksgiving holiday.  It's the first time in a long while that I've actually looked forward to it.

Like the first book in the series, Thanksgiving Dinner Death (Juniper Holiday, #2) is a quick, fun read, and I've come to love the main character even more if that's even possible, and I really enjoy Juniper's love/hate relationship with Detective Mallard.  What's more is that I foresee her goddaughter, Victoria, and Detective Mallard becoming an item in the near future.

This book reminded me a little of the television show Ghosts and little bit of the book/television series The Vampire Diaries.  You'll see what I mean if you read the book.  Figuring out the murderer and motive in Thanksgiving Dinner Death took me a little longer this time, and I felt like a bit of a dunce because the clues were all there.

Four out of five stars is what I gave Thanksgiving Dinner Death (Juniper Holiday, #2) by Leighann Dobbs.  I will definitely read the next book in the series called Who Slayed The Santas? (Juniper Holiday, #3), which has an expected publication date of December 15, 2022.
