Wedding Cake Murder

Hannah Swensen #19

by Joanna Fluke

02 . 23 . 2016

From Goodreads:

Everyone in Lake Eden, Minnesota, may have had their doubts, but at long last, Hannah Swensen is getting married!
 
Hannah is thrilled to be marrying Ross Barton, her college crush. And her excitement only grows when she learns he’ll be able to join her on her trip to New York City for the Food Channel’s dessert chef contest. She’s especially nervous about facing Alain Duquesne, a celebrity chef with a nasty reputation. But before he can tear into Hannah’s layer cake, she finds him stabbed to death on the show’s kitchen set. Out of the oven, as the saying goes, and into the bright lights of Broadway, as Hannah tries to solve a mystery with more layers than a five-tiered wedding cake…

Why I am waiting…

Because she is getting MARRIED! and going to New York!

Just when the series was getting too repetative, Fluke got even more creative.  She really has done a great job with the series!

And!! For anyone who is already a fan of the series.  I just discovered the Hallmark Channel has made a movie based on the first book.  The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder is based on the first book of the Hannah Swensen Series.  The movie is playing throughout the summer on the Hallmark Channel (makes me wish I hadn’t gotten rid of cable!) Check out a trailer below!

Cast in Honor

Chronicles of Elantra #11

by Michelle Sagara

11 . 24 . 2015

 

From Goodreads: 

In the aftermath of a vicious battle between darkness and light, the city of Elantra has emerged victorious. But Shadows continue to haunt every corner of its streets…

Elantra stands strong, but countless numbers of Hawks, the city’s staunchest protectors, were lost in the brutal attack. Humans, Barrani, Aerians, Leontines—none of the races emerged unscathed from the defense of the city. Homes were lost, families were scattered…and the outcast Barrani Lord Nightshade is missing from his castle in the fiefs.

Yet as the chaos surrounding the battle begins to wane, Private Kaylin Neya’s duties must resume, despite her grief. Called in to investigate a triple murder in a quiet part of town, Kaylin and her companions are soon embroiled in a case that is anything but routine. Evidence of the deadly Shadows that still threaten the city leads to hints of ancient, forgotten magics. And a visit to the Oracular Halls points directly to Ravellon—the heart of the Shadows and the darkness they contain.

But it is there that Lord Nightshade will be found—if he still survives.

 

Why I am waiting…

I am not entirely certain that I am waiting on this one…Don’t get me wrong, the series has been great, but I might be losing interest this late in the game.  I keep reading the books, hoping for a bit more romance, and then being a bit disappointed.  I will not be giving up though.  I will keep reading!  As it is, this cover looks even better than the last ones and the description sounds promising!

Reap the Wind

Cassie Palmer #7 

by Karen Chance

11 . 03 . 2015

From GoodReads: 

You’d think that being Chief Seer for the supernatural world would come with a few perks. But as Cassie Palmer has learned, being Pythia doesn’t mean you don’t have to do things the hard way. That’s why she finds herself on a rescue mission skipping through time—even though she doesn’t entirely understand her dimension-bending new power.

Rescuing her friend John Pritkin should have been an in and out kind of deal, but with the near-immortal mage’s soul lost in time, Cassie has to hunt for it through the ages—with Pritkin’s demon dad in tow. He’s the only one who can reverse Pritkin’s curse, but with the guardians of the time-line dead set on stopping anyone from mucking about, Cassie will have to figure out how to get her friend back without ruffling too many feathers—or causing a world-ending paradox or two…

 

Why I am waiting….

Now, with this book, it really does feel like I have been waiting forever!  The publication has bveen postponed once or twice.  I haven’t given up…it looks like it really will be coming out in November of this year.  This series had an interesting take on a lot of super-natural aspects, and characters: including Dracula and Merlin!  The series continues forward…and sideways with Karen Chance’s other series and short stories.  Each series is original, the characters are well developed, and the plots are well thought out. Hope you enjoy!
