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. With that being said, I'm glad I stuck with the book because the last 15% of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline started to

Book Review: Murder at the Bookstore (The Bookstore Mystery, #1) by Sue Minix

Book Review Murder at the Bookstore (The Bookstore Mystery, #1) by Sue Minix

Murder at the Bookstore (The Bookstore Mystery, #1) by Sue Minix was published by Avon Books UK on January 19, 2023. It opens with Jen Dawson struggling with writer's block at the local bookstore.  When the owner of the bookstore happens to die, Jen is a mission to avenge her friend's death.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and Avon Books UK for the Advanced Readers Copy of Murder at the Bookstore (The Bookstore Mystery, #1) by Sue Minix.  I was happy that my request to read this book was approved because I found the cover and synopsis of the novel intriguing.  I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Fun . . . Entertaining . . . Engrossing.  These are just a few words that I'd use to describe this book.  I loved the fact that some of the story took place in Savannah, Georgia because I have visited there and could imagine all the different spots and roads that were mentioned and kept thinking, "Oh, I know where that is!"  Most of the characters were very likeable, but there were a couple that I didn't like.  With that being said, one of the characters I didn't like ended up winning me over towards the end of the book.   This book was a quick read that I enjoyed immensely, and I will read the next installment when it comes out.

The only complaint I had about Murder at the Bookstore was that I figured out who the murderer was early on in the book.  Although the author kept throwing suspicion on other characters, I really didn't doubt who actually committed the crime.

Four out of five stars is what I gave Murder at the Bookstore (The Bookstore Mystery, #1) by Sue Minix.  The next installment in the series, The Murderous Type (The Bookstore Mystery, #2) by Sue Minix, is due out on May 25, 2023, which makes my day.
