Eat, Drink, and Be Scary (A Ravenmist Whodunit Paranormal Cozy Mystery #1) by Olivia Jaymes


Welcome to Ravenmist! A tiny Midwestern town with charming covered bridges, quirky residents, delightful antique shops, and more than their share of haunted activity. 

It’s time for the annual Fall Festival, and that means the quaint Ravenmist Inn—owned by Theodosia “Tedi” Hamilton—is filled to the brim with out of town guests. It’s her favorite time of the year with all the spooky decorations, sugar-filled candy, and over the top costumes. 

The festival doesn’t quite go as planned, however, when one of her guests is found face down in the apple bob. To make things worse, her best friend becomes the number one suspect. Tedi has no choice but to spring into action. 

Come join the spirited antics as Tedi deals with an unsolved murder, a shy ghost in her closet, a mischievous spirit in the bookstore, and the handsome new local sheriff who drives her crazy. You see, he thinks all the ghost stories are made up for the tourists. But Tedi knows better, and now so will you… 

My review:
Eat, Drink, and Be Scary is a delightful paranormal cozy mystery. Tedi is sweet and funny and the sheriff has possibilities. Ravenmist is a quiet town that has had not one but two murders in one weekend. Can the sheriff find the murderer in a town filled with tourists? I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to read the next installment.

You're Lion to Me (Paranormal Dating Agency #20) by Milly Taiden

From planet Aurora, lioness shifter, Dalissa Furr, wants to explore new places before she goes insane from boredom. So a trip to Earth is a must. Finding her mate in the process would be great too, if Gerri Wilder can make it happen. But according to her parents, her smaller than normal size and delicate features make her undesirable to a shifter. 

Azai Whittip, alpha of the White Tip wolf pack, will only accept his true mate for a life-long partner, to the dismay of the females in the pack. When Gerri asks him to take her friend sightseeing, he doesn’t expect this friend to be gorgeous and smell so damn good. Oh, and bonus, she’s his mate. 

As far as Azai is concerned, life’s perfect now that he found Dalissa. But someone in his pack or the neighboring lion pride think wolves and lions don’t mix. When both alphas and the male wolves come up missing, it’s up to Dalissa to figure out what’s going on and how to stop the one person set on destroying both packs and dominating the human world. Talk about an adventure! 

My review:
Gerri Wilder and her wicked sense of humor is back and she has a match for the ages. Lioness shifter Dalissa has always been told she is less than. By her parents no less. Is it any wonder she wants to get away?  Wolf shifter Azai has she wolves stalking him wanting to be the alpha’s mate but he will settle for nothing less than his true mate. Besides he is too busy for a mate. He has a lion pride moving in next door.
In this fun addition we meet a lot of fun lions and wolves and a great time is guaranteed. I really liked Dalissa and her female empowerment. This is a fun and sexy tale with a bit of mystery thrown in. I loved it.

My Paranormal Valentine by Alyssa Day, Lisa Kessler, Renee George, Abigail Owen, Debra Dunbar, Robyn Peterman and Michelle M. Pillow

My Paranormal Valentine by Alyssa Day, Lisa Kessler, Renee George, Abigail Owen, Debra Dunbar, Robyn Peterman and Michelle M. Pillow

Seven of the top paranormal romance authors writing today have joined together to bring you a set of first-in-series novels to help you celebrate Valentine's Day in style — with your very own paranormal Valentine.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Alyssa Day: January in Atlantis (Poseidon's Warriors, #1): Flynn's mission may be derailed by a woman who's on the run. Will the heat between them be strong enough to save the day — or burn down the world?

From Amazon Best Selling author Lisa Kessler: Lure of Obsession (Muse Chronicles, #1): Detective Nate Malone has been marked by the gods to protect the Muse of Tragic Poetry. When a killer sets his sights on her, Nate will risk everything to protect her, and tragedy isn't part of his plan...

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Robyn Peterman: Switching Hour (Magic and Mayhem, #1): Released from the magic pokey and paroled with limited power is enough to make any witch grumpy. However, if you throw in a recently resurrected cat, a lime-green Kia and a sexy egotistical werewolf, it's enough to make a gal fly off the edge. 
Not to mention a mission...with no freaking directions. 
If they think I'm the right witch for the job, they've swallowed some bad brew.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Michelle M. Pillow: The Mighty Hunter (Lords of the Abyss, #1): The merman may have rescued her from death, but who’s going to rescue her from him? Welcome to the underwater world of Atlantes!

From International Bestselling Author Debra Dunbar: Rogue (Northern Wolves, #2): Sabrina had a hot sexy night with a bear shifter during her wolf pack's annual barbeque — then never heard from him again. Sent to track down a murderous rogue, she's surprised to find herself partnered with Karl — the same bear shifter that has been fueling her fantasies for the last year. Can Sabrina trust a brooding bear shifter with secrets of his own to have her back as well as hold her heart?

From USA Today Bestselling Author Renee George: You've Got Tail (Peculiar Mysteries, #1): Psychic Sunny hightails it to the Missouri Ozarks to find her missing friend Chavvah, only to discover romance with her friend’s younger brother, a kidnapping conspiracy, and a town full of secrets that some will kill to protect.

From Award-Winning Author Abigail Owen: Her Demigod Complex (Legendary Consultants, #1): As an ex-nymph, Lyleia Naiad has the unique ability to resist her boss's demigod-like charms. The man's been breaking hearts for millennia. But Castor Dioskouri shows her a different side — compassionate, dedicated, protective and loyal. And that Castor is nearly impossible to resist. Attending a werewolf mating ceremony together — where the pheromones fly, and so do clothes, inhibitions, and common sense — might be one temptation too many.

My review:
Seven fabulous firsts in a series in one hot collection. Love among the supernatural is magical.
January in Atlantis (Poseidon's Warriors, #1) by Alyssa Day – The first in a spin-off of the Warriors of Poseidon series. Atlantis has risen and Flynn the prodigal son has returned home only to be sent away again on a mission for Poseidon. This is his chance to prove he isn’t the screw up he thinks he is. This is a sexy fun story and a great intro to the new series.
Lure of Obsession (Muse Chronicles, #1) by Lisa Kessler - What would modern day Muses do? What would they look like? And who wants them dead? Find the answers to these and other questions in Lure of Obsession. This is a wonderful romantic suspense with a bit of paranormal thrown in. Melanie is the type of teacher I wanted and Nate needs someone like her in his life. 
Switching Hour (Magic and Mayhem, #1) by Robyn Peterman – This is a hilarious laugh out loud romp that will have you giggle-snorting and flipping pages. Zelda learns to believe in herself and learns that it is okay to let people in.
The Mighty Hunter (Lords of the Abyss, #1) by Michelle M. Pillow – Mermen! I loved the concept behind this book and will be checking out this series but my goodness I wanted to slap the whiny out of Bridget.
Rogue (Northern Wolves, #2) by Debra Dunbar – Okay so this is the second in the series but I would have never know. Sabrina is a strong dominant female wolf shifter, Karl is a grumpy bear shifter with a little extra. When these two get together to discover who is killing shifters sparks fly. I really like these two together.
You've Got Tail (Peculiar Mysteries, #1) by Renee George – I love Renee George! This whole series is fantastic. Watching Sunny come into her own was amazing. The laughs and cuteness along the way made this a fun read.
Her Demigod Complex (Legendary Consultants, #1) by Abigail Owen – This story is one of the reasons I love anthologies. I really enjoyed this story of Gods, demigods, nymphs and werewolves. I probably wouldn’t have found this series if not for this anthology. I will certainly be checking out this series.

Jaguar's Mate (Crescent Moon #8) by Katie Reus & Savannah Stuart

She’s not looking for a mate… 

Sapphire is cursed. Every relationship she’s ever been in has ended poorly. So she’s sworn off relationships and is happy with her life. Until Eli comes along—a one-night stand that turned into two nights. When things got too intense, she did what she always did. She ran. 

He’s not letting her get away… 

This time Eli isn’t letting Sapphire go without a fight. When her friend needs help escaping an abusive situation, he steps up, no questions asked. It doesn’t matter that Sapphire won’t tell him why she’s holding back from him. He’s a jaguar shifter and cats are very patient—he’ll wait for his mate to come around. But before he can claim her once and for all, they’ll have to deal with an angry bunch of shifters who are out for blood. 

My review:
Jaguar's Mate is a sweet addition to the Crescent Moon series but like the others can be read standalone. I absolutely love Sapphire. She is a grown she-wolf shifter who feels as if love is not in the cards for her. Jaguar shifter Eli is determined to change her mind. This story will pluck the heartstrings.

Killer Thriller (Ian Ludlow Thrillers #2) by Lee Goldberg

Everybody loves Ian Ludlow’s action novels—especially the CIA—because the spies know something the public doesn’t: his fictional plots have a frightening tendency to come true. Ian is in Hong Kong with his resourceful assistant Margo French to research his wildest story yet—a deadly global conspiracy by Chinese intelligence to topple the United States.

What Ian doesn’t know is that his horrifying scenario is happening and that the Chinese mistakenly believe he’s an undercover superspy assigned to foil their scheme. Now Ian is trapped in his own terrifying thriller, on the run from assassins, and racing against time to prevent an epic disaster. He’s written himself into a corner that could cost his life…and his country.

My review:
Killer Thriller is a fantastic follow-up to True Fiction. It is high energy, clever and tons of fun. I really enjoyed this fast paced, witty romp taken straight from today’s headlines and anxiously await Ian and Margo’s next adventure.

Old Sins (Lindenshaw Mysteries #4) by Charlie Cochrane

Detective Chief Inspector Robin Bright and his partner, deputy headteacher Adam Matthews, have just consigned their summer holiday to the photo album. It’s time to get back to the daily grind, and the biggest problem they’re expecting to face: their wedding plans. Then fate strikes—literally—with a bang.

Someone letting loose shots on the common, a murder designed to look like a suicide, and the return of a teacher who made Robin’s childhood hell all conspire to turn this into one of his trickiest cases yet.

Especially when somebody might be targeting their Newfoundland, Campbell. Robin is used to his and Adam’s lives being in danger, but this takes the—dog—biscuit.

My review:
Robin, Adam and Campbell are back in a convoluted new mystery that will keep you guessing. Robin and Adam are as cute as ever. This mystery had so many threads my mind was all in a knot by the time we got to the conclusion. I really enjoy this series and look forward to the next installment.

Black Light: Possession is a stand alone novel set in the Black Light world.

My review:
Black Light: Possession by L.K. Shaw is an erotic suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. As a trio Madeline, Joseph and Nathaniel are hot. But the mystery is what really sets this story apart.
