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

Image
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: Christmas Mittens Murder by Lee Hollis, Lynn Cahoon, and Maddie Day

book review christmas mittens murder lee hollis lynn cahoon maddie day
A huge thank you goes out to NetGalley for giving me an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Christmas Mittens Murder, which is a collection of three novellas written by Lee Hollis, Lynn Cahoon, and Maddie Day.  I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I was excited to be approved to read this book!

DEATH OF A CHRISTMAS MITTEN KNITTER (HAYLEY POWELL FOOD AND COCKTAILS MYSTERY, #16.5) by LEE HOLLIS

This particular novella was a fun read, and I enjoyed reading about Haley Powell and her friends trying to solve the latest mystery, which had me guessing.  It's always great to revisit characters that are so likable.  I haven't read a lot of books in this series, but overall, I have come to enjoy the storylines a lot, and this novella did not disappoint.  It's becoming one of my favorite cozy mystery series, and I need to find more time to read more by this author.  Four out of five stars.

TWO CHRISTMAS MITTENS (KITCHEN WITCH MYSTERIES, #4.5) by LYNN CAHOON

I haven't read any of the books in this particular series, so it took a while for me to really figure out who some of the characters were and how they were connected to the other characters in the story.  There really wasn't much backstory either, which was a bit confusing as well.  The overall story ended up being great once I figured out how the characters were related to one another.  Additionally, it was a little predictable.  I enjoyed it enough that I would like to read the first book in the series to give the series a fair chance.  Three out of five stars.

MURDEROUS MITTENS (CEECEE BARTON MYSTERY, #0.5) by MADDIE DAY

This novella is a prequel to a new series that brought in a guest character from another series by the same author.  The storyline was interesting enough and had plenty of red herrings.  With that being said, the ending felt a little rushed, and the motive a little unrealistic.  That aside, I am looking forward to reading the first book in the series because this novella was fun and entertaining.  Four out of five stars.

Overall, Christmas Mittens Murder by Lee Hollis, Lynn Cahoon, and Maddie Day was a fun, entertaining read that put me in the mood for Christmas.  Four out of five stars is what I give this book.
