Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Book Review: Knot A Game (Yarn Retreat Mystery, #9) by Betty Hechtman

Book Review of Knot a Game (Yarn Retreat Mystery, #9) by Betty Hechtman

Knot A Game (Yarn Retreat Mystery, #9) by Betty Hechtman opens with Casey Feldstein meeting with one of the owners at the Vista Del Mar to discuss an upcoming retreat.  Madeline has come up with an idea of combining a murder mystery game with the typical yarn retreat that Casey normally does.  When one of the guests ends up being murdered, things go awry.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and and Beyond the Page Publishing for approving my request to read this novel.  The synopsis including a bit about a murder mystery game that sounded similar to playing the board game Clue really intrigued me.

Having never read a book written by Betty Hechtman before, I wasn't sure what to expect as cozy mystery novels have always been hit or miss with me.  However, I was pleasantly surprised to find Knot A Game to be well written, engaging, and an all around fun read.  I enjoyed it so much that I'm looking forward to purchasing all the other books that came before this one in the series.

Most of the characters were likable with only a few being unpleasant, which is nice for a change.  There are so many times where this isn't the case.  I felt like I lived in the little town and knew all the characters that lived there.  The pacing of the story had a nice tempo and didn't seem to drag one bit.  I enjoyed all the red herrings and clues that the author planted throughout the book to keep me guessing the entire time.   

Five out of five stars is what I gave Knot A Game (Yarn Retreat Mystery, #9) by Betty Hechtman.  This novel includes some recipes of food described in the book along with instructions on how to knit the hand warmers the characters made in the story.
