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: Murder Uncorked (Cece Barton Mystery, #1) by Maddie Day

book review murder uncorked maddie day

Murder Uncorked (Cece Barton Mystery, #1) by Maddie Day is the first book in a new cozy mystery series.  Cece Barton is a widowed mom with a daughter in college.  After moving to wine country to live nearby her sister, Cece becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a man.  Wanting to clear her name, Cece starts investigating the murder.  Will she clear her name?

Thank you, NetGalley, for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Murder Uncorked (Cece Barton Mystery, #1) by Maddie Day.  I received a digital copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

I knew a little about this cozy mystery because the author wrote a prequel that was published in a collection of novellas, and I wasn't disappointed.  This story was a fun, easy read and perfect to read while on vacation.  I liked that it took place near vineyards and that the reader gets a little insight of how they might promote their products.

Most of the characters were likable, and I felt like I could be friends with several of them.  The culprit was a bit obvious, but there were a couple of red herrings that made me second guess myself.  I look forward to reading more of this series by Maddie Day.  Four out of five stars is what I gave Murder Uncorked (Cece Barton Mystery, #1) by Maddie Day.
