The Dead Key – D.M. Pulley

The Dead Key

Find it on Amazon – It’s even on Kindle Unlimited!

Of course, this cover caught my eye at the library. I’m so into covers, I mean really. I know it shouldn’t be a factor, but a well done cover just makes me happy and more into wanting to read the book!

 

I really liked this book! This is the first book that I’ve read by D.M. Pulley, and as I was finding the picture for the post, I saw that there are 2 other books in KU! The stories of Beatrice and Iris and their experiences was so well thought out and executed! How things were connected over a period of 20 years and how they were working together, was so well done!

Poor Beatrice! I mean, at 16 years old I didn’t handle anything well, and she was so smart she did what the police and the FBI could never do!  And, as Iris felt like she was losing her mind, I felt the same way! D.M. really pulled me in and I could feel the emotions that Iris was feeling and the paranoia that kicked in.  – You’re not being paranoid if someone is really fucking with you!

I was surprised exactly how the ending worked itself out, and I had mixed emotions about how things went!

I worked at a few banks years ago, and maybe that is why I was drawn into the story so much too. It has really made me wonder what for real happens to safe-deposit boxes when they are defaulted on!

I’m looking forward to reading the other books that D.M. has written. They are going on my TBR!

 

Farm Fresh Murder: A Farmers’ Market Mystery – Paige Shelton

Farm Fresh Murder

Find it on Amazon

This series caught my eye at the library! I know, not a romance novel or a true crime?! It’s a miracle… Not really, I do love a mystery.

I didn’t know Farmers’ Markets were so exciting! In fact, murder aside, I never even thought what must go in to running or having a booth at a market. Having to haul all your stuff back and forth. Being out in the elements. I don’t think that having a stall at a farmers’ market would be for me. But, I know next time I go, I’ll be thinking more about what goes into getting the fresh foods and goodies.

Poor Becca, she just can’t help herself. I understand the wanting to help a friend, but who wants to be shot at while doing so!? Not me. Ha. I did appreciate Becca though. The fact that she’s been married and is a little cynical. The fact that she finds a love interest in a younger man. I think she’s fabulous and someone I’d like to be friends with. — Maybe, as most series’ go along, bad things always happen to the protagonists friends and family, and I don’t want that shit. – 🙂 It makes me want a greenhouse full of beautiful flowers. But, sadly I don’t have a green thumb and everything would be dead. A greenhouse graveyard. eek

I will say that I can usually figure out who the killer is and why, but with this book, I really didn’t know until it was revealed!

There are recipes in the back of the book. I have tried one of them, and I’m going to try the other’s and do a post. I thought that was cute to include the vendors recipes!
