Holiday Cozy Mystery

March 3, 2018Format: Kindle Edition

This was my first Emlyn Goode Mystery, but it won’t be my last! Author Susan Lynn Solomon has created a wonderful cozy mystery series, and this holiday novella is a delightful crash course into it.

When the police throw a Christmas bash, it is merry mayhem as everyone is surprised by the grisly secret Santa gift. Although her cop boyfriend tells her repeatedly to stay out of it, Emlyn Good tries to figure out the mystery. After all, where else will she get material for her next book. As the story progresses, readers get to know Emlyn, her family and cats well. While it is clear that the characters have, for the most part, been introduced and developed previously, Ms. Solomon presented her characters in a way that I felt I knew them.

‘Twas The Season is a good holiday cozy mystery that fans of the series are sure to enjoy.

Chelsey McQuitty5.0 out of 5 stars A true to life romance!Reviewed in the United States on January 25, 2018Verified PurchaseIf you’re tired of the same run of the mill romances then this one is certainly right up your alley. You won’t wind up with a huge drama that leaves you waiting for the happy ending. Rather, this romance is a lot more real to life than you can imagine. The characters are loveable, even with some of their eccentric behaviors, which is something that I especially enjoyed about the book. I also got a kick out of the humor that the author brought to the table. If you love romance stories but aren’t eager for the erotic elements that many novels have now-a-days, then this is right up your alley.
I read this book was taken from a screen play, which might be one of the main reasons it stood out to me. Of course, this means the dialogue is much stronger

BAD CHOICES CAN BE DEADLY Bad Choices (Faces Behind the Stones Book 2) FRAN LEWIS

 

Bad Choices (Faces Behind the Stones Book 2)



Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2013

The story begins with Benita the first of several narrators who share their story as to why they are one of the faces behind the stone. As the reader is escorted around the cemetery, we listen to stories of alcohol, abuse, and suicide accompanied with a warning to readers about the consequences of apathy. It was the warning herald by Sam, "Hear my voice before you too wind up a face behind stone!" that sent chills down my spine. As I read on, I encounter more and more faces and was amazed at the author's ability to give life to these tragic figures. People, this is a ghost story like no other!

If I had to compare this book to anything already out there, I would have to compare it to the play, Our Town. However, unlike OT the story doesn't go in depth into the mundane parts of the characters. Faces Behind Stones gets straight to the point and starts where most stories end. From beyond the grave teens share their stories with the living, stories that went unspoken until now.

I wasn't expecting something like this from Fran Lewis her stories are usually uplifting and witty, this however, was much more dark and tragic. Using fiction, I was pleasantly surprised at how she was able to tackle the issues that plague today's youth. With a sympathetic ear, Fran listens to her characters and gives them a stage to tell their stories. Also in the end of the book, there is an appendix that helps educators and parents understand what's going on in the teen world. This is a must buy for those working with or living with teens.
