Book Review and Giveaway - The Woman in the Green Dress by Tea Cooper

My Review
The Woman in the Green Dress is a historical novel set in Sydney, Australia in 1853 and London - and then Sydney - in 1918.  It is the story of a mysterious woman in a green dress, a white kangaroo, an opal that is said to carry a curse, an unusual little curio shop, a botanist who falls in love, and a woman post-World War I who is desperatley trying to find out if her husband survived the war.

I wanted to read this novel because it sounded so unique. I have not read a lot of historical fiction set in Australia, and I was very inrigued by the setting. As someone who sells vintage items for a living, I was particularly curious about the curio shop.

This is a dual storyline novel. The 1918 storyline is about Fleur Richards, a British woman who has received unofficial word that her Australian husband died in World War I. She receives a sizable inheritance which she doesn't want to accept, so she travels to Sydney to learn the truth.

In Sydney the story flashes back to 1853, an Austrian botanist newly arrived and intrigued by a beautiful young woman who has made friends with a white kangaroo, the curio shop the girl's aunt runs, and an assortment of mysterious stories including a huge opal and an unusual curio shop.

Initially I was much more interested in Fleur's storyline and her search for her lost husband in 1918. The 1853 storyline was much more complex with many characters and locales and it took me longer to really become invested in that story.  Then, about halfway through the book, I suddenly found that story completely fascinating and just could not put the book down!

This is such an unusual book.  It combines mystery, romance, and topics like opals, the properties of arsenic, and taxidermy in the 1800's.  I have been thinking about it since I finished reading, something that I always consider a hallmark of a really exceptional read.

I recommend The Woman in the Green Dress for fans of historical fiction, for anyone interested in Australia, and for anyone looking for a unique glimpse at history that is rarely addressed in fiction.

Book Synopsis
A cursed opal, a gnarled family tree, and a sinister woman in a green dress emerge in the aftermath of World War I.

After a whirlwind romance, London teashop waitress Fleur Richards can’t wait for her new husband, Hugh, to return from the Great War. But when word of his death arrives on Armistice Day, Fleur learns he has left her a sizable family fortune. Refusing to accept the inheritance, she heads to his beloved home country of Australia in search of the relatives who deserve it more.

In spite of her reluctance, she soon finds herself the sole owner of a remote farm and a dilapidated curio shop full of long-forgotten artifacts, remarkable preserved creatures, and a mystery that began more than sixty-five years ago. With the help of Kip, a repatriated soldier dealing with the sobering aftereffects of war, Fleur finds herself unable to resist pulling on the threads of the past. What she finds is a shocking story surrounding an opal and a woman in a green dress. . . a story that, nevertheless, offers hope and healing for the future.

This romantic mystery from award-winning Australian novelist Tea Cooper will keep readers guessing until the astonishing conclusion.

Book Review - The Key to Everything by Valerie Fraser Luesse

My Review
The Key to Everything is a historical novel that begins in 1947 Savannah.  Peyton Cabot is 15 years old when a family tragedy prompts him to retrace his father's long ago bicycle ride from Savannah to Key West.  Over the summer trip he discovers his dreams, a sense of family, and first love.

I wanted to read The Key to Everything because I am originally from Savannah and was intrigued by the setting.  I also love vintage Florida and was curious about that aspect of the novel.

This novel is such a lovely, leisurely road trip!  Peyton is such a likable, kind-hearted young man and I enjoyed his pursuit of an unlikely dream - to travel to Key West on bicycle.  My father was just a little older than Peyton during this time period and I found the novel particularly interesting because of this connection.

The details of life in Savannah and vintage Florida (especially St. Augustine and Key West) were lovely.  The author does a beautiful job at evoking another time and place, with passages like:

"St. Augustine was a marvel. Peyton had grown up around historic architecture in Savannah, but this place was seriously old. Everywhere, you could see remnants of Spanish buildings— and others still intact and in use. Tourists swarmed the centuries-old fort on the waterfront. He picked up a map in a candy shop, where he couldn’t resist the aroma of chocolate, and wandered cobblestone streets while he nibbled on fudge. Eventually, he made his way to the Ponce de Leon, a grand hotel built by the man who had dreamed up the railroad to Key West. It looked like something out of Arabian Nights." (Kindle location 1242)

The coming of age aspect of this book and the iconic nature of Peyton's journey (and his father's journey years ago) was so moving.  This passage encapsulates the family legend:

"The boys listened as their Uncle Gil retold his favorite story, the same one he told at every spring picnic. 'Marshall says to me, he says, ‘I believe I’ve seen all this ol’ camp has to offer.’ And I says, ‘What you plan on doin’ about it ?’ That’s when he pointed at the bicycles Papa had left for us. He says, ‘I’m gonna ride my bicycle to Key West and see what those islands look like.' The cousins finished the story with their uncle, repeating his favorite line in unison: 'And that, ladies and gentlemen, was the last time Marshall Cabot ever let anybody tell him what to do.'" (Kindle location 120).

I truly enjoyed The Key to Everything and recommend it highly for fans of historical fiction, southern fiction, and for anyone interested in life in Georgia and Florida during the 1940's.  

Book Synopsis
"Promise me you'll never come back here, Peyton. It's too much--it's just way too much."

Peyton Cabot's fifteenth year will be a painful and transformative one. His father, the heroic but reluctant head of a moneyed Savannah family, has come home from World War II a troubled vet, drowning his demons in bourbon and distancing himself from his son. A tragic accident shows Peyton the depths of his parents' devotion to each other but interrupts his own budding romance with the girl of his dreams.

Struggling to cope with a young life upended, Peyton makes a daring decision: He will retrace a journey his father took at fifteen, riding his bicycle from St. Augustine, Florida, all the way to Key West. Part declaration of independence, part search for self, Peyton's journey will bring him more than he ever could have imagined--namely, the key to his unknowable father, a longed-for reunion, and a calling that will shape the rest of his life.

Dear Abby - Dachshund Puppy Discovers Fruit

Dear Friends,

My friend Shari sent me a wonderful short video. I really enjoyed seeing how other dachshunds live - across the world in the Netherlands - and thought you might enjoy this one too.  The video features Loulou and Coco the dachshunds.  First there is dinner, then a walk by the lake, and then they try some fruit as a treat.  They try strawberries and blueberries and discover both are delicious!  (I could have told them that.)  Then they have a nice nap because they have had a full day.

Here is the little video:

I hope you enjoyed spending some time with Loulou and Coco. If you have a dog, does your pup like fruit? I love it in little bites - especially bananas!

Have a great weekend!

Book Review and Giveaway - Booked for Death by Victoria Gilbert (Booklovers B&B Mysteries)

My Review
Booked for Death is a cozy mystery set in a B&B in Beaufort, North Carolina. Charlotte Reed inherited the B&B from her great aunt, and enjoys running it with a literary theme -- special book events. When a rare book dealer turns up dead during a Josephine Tey week-long event, Charlotte becomes an amateur detective to help solve the mystery.

I wanted to read Booked for Death because I was intrigued by the book-themed B&B.  I love southern settings, so that was another plus.  I have enjoyed the author's Blue Ridge Library Mysteries series, so that made me even more interested in this new series as well.

What a wonderful start to a new series!  The B&B is a perfect setting for a new series.  I found the story about Charlotte's Great Aunt Isabella fascinating and loved the details of the mystery stretching back to an earlier time.

The murder victim was a thoroughly unlikable fellow and there were a number of viable suspects. The mystery aspect of this book was particularly well written and the pacing was perfection.  It moved quickly and I found it hard to put the book down!

Charlotte and her elderly neighbor Ellen work together well as amateur detectives.  I enjoyed their friendship and their deduction process.

I already look forward to the next book in this series and recommend Booked for Death for fans of cozy mysteries, and especially for readers who like a southern setting or a book-ish theme mystery.

Book Synopsis

From the critically acclaimed author of SIBA Okra Pick A Murder for the Books, Victoria Gilbert embarks with a new series for perfect for fans of Kate Carlisle and Juliet Blackwell. 

A book lover’s B&B in an idyllic waterfront village becomes the scene of a grisly murder–and a ruthless battle between treachery and the truth. 

Nestled in the historic waterfront town of Beaufort, North Carolina, Chapters Bed-and-Breakfast is a reader’s paradise. Built in 1770, the newly renovated inn hosts a roster of special events celebrating books, genres, and authors. It’s the perfect literary retreat–until a rare book dealer turns up dead in the carriage house during a celebration of Golden Age mystery author Josephine Tey. 

The victim’s daughter points the finger at forty-two-year-old widow and former schoolteacher Charlotte Reed, who inherited the B&B from her great-aunt Isabella. Charlotte is shocked to discover that the book dealer suspected Isabella of being a thief who founded Chapters on her ill-gotten gains. Charlotte has successfully learned the B&B business in a year, but nothing has prepared her to handle a death on the premises. 

Armed with intelligence and courage and assisted by her vibrant older neighbor, a visiting author, and members of a local book club, Charlotte is determined to prove her innocence and to clear her great-aunt’s name. But the murderer is still at large, and equally determined to silence anyone who might discover the truth behind the book dealer’s death. Now, Charlotte must outwit an unknown killer–or end up writing her own final chapter.

Book Review - Snowed Under (A Maggie McDonald Mystery) by Mary Feliz

My Review
Snowed Under is a cozy mystery about Maggie McDonald. Maggie and her best friend Tess have traveled to Lake Tahoe. Tess is planning to sell her family vacation home and Maggie has agreed to use her professional organizing skills to declutter the house and get it ready for sale. They arrive along with a snowstorm -- and a murder mystery when Maggie discovers a body in the snow!

I wanted to read Snowed Under because I enjoy cozy mysteries. I was intrigued by the job of a professional organizer, and liked the mention of dogs in the story.

This is my first read in the Maggie McDonald series, but it was an enjoyable read as a standalone. The two major characters were Maggie and Tess and since they were in a new setting, there was not a lot of additional backstory to catch up with.

I don't think I have ever read a book that captured winter weather and being snowed in as well as Snowed Under! It made me feel cold just reading about the storm. I have had limited experience with snow storms, so found that aspect of the book interesting.

The mystery involves Dev, the man found in a snow drift. Dev was a husband and father who disappeared several months ago and was found by chance by Maggie. The story involves the neighborhood and community, so there were a lot of characters to get to know and keep up with. (A cast of characters page would have been helpful.)  The mystery was well plotted with a number of suspects, but then it took a sort of turn and the murderer came out of nowhere (not a previously introduced suspect).

There are a number of dogs in Snowed Under, and that always adds to cozy mystery enjoyment for me! I was particularly fond of Duke, the persnickety little chihuahua.

The chapter epigraphs all were inspiring quotes about simplifying and organizing. There was less actually organizing and decluttering in the book than I had expected; this may be different in other books in the Maggie McDonald series.

Snowed Under was an enjoyable cozy mystery read. It will keep readers on their toes as they solve the case along with Maggie. Readers who enjoy seasonal settings (winter!) and dogs in mysteries will also enjoy those aspects of the storytelling.

Book Synopsis

When professional organizer Maggie McDonald finds a body in a snowdrift outside her friend’s ski cabin, she must plow through the clues to find a cold-blooded killer . . .

Lake Tahoe in February is beautiful, but Maggie can’t see a thing as she drives through a blinding blizzard with her friend Tess Olmos and their dogs, golden retriever Belle and German shepherd Mozart.Maggie has offered her professional decluttering skills to help Tess tidy up her late husband’s cabin in preparation to sell. She also plans to get in some skiing when her husband Max and their boys join them later in the week.

What she doesn’t plan on is finding a boot in a snowdrift attached to a corpse. The frozen stiff turns out to be Tess’s neighbor, Dev Bailey, who disappeared two months ago. His widow Leslie expresses grief, but Maggie can’t help but wonder if it’s a snow job. As more suspects start to pile up, things go downhill fast, and Maggie must keep her cool to solve the murder before the killer takes a powder . . .

Dear Abby - Videos That Abby Likes: Kitten Shares Kibble With Dog Friend

Hi Friends!

I hope you are having a great day. I have a super short and sweet video for you (it is just seconds long).

This little video shows a kitten and a miniature pinscher.   The kitten is happily eating food and the min pin looks hungrily on (but very politely, I might add!).  The kitten decides to share some food with her dog friend.  (Please note -- if the video doesn't work via phone, please try viewing on a computer instead.)

This video came from my Uncle Dave (thanks!) and it reminded me of a story about two of his late pets.  I hear there was a Thanksgiving dinner at his house and his cat Buster and dog Augie were very interested in the meal.  They were, in fact, so interested that Buster got up on the counter, slapped a little pan of crescent rolls to the ground -- and shared with Augie, who was waiting.  Here is a picture of Augie the dog and Buster the cat (not eating rolls in this photo!).

I hope this little video made you smile.

Have a wonderful day!

Book Review - Carolina Breeze and Lake Season by Denise Hunter (Bluebell Inn Romance)

My Review of Carolina Breeze
Carolina Breeze tells the story of Mia Emerson, an actress who decides to get away from Los Angeles after she is unwittingly caught in a manufactured scandal.  She just broke up with her fiance, and ends up going on the honeymoon on her own, just as a way to escape  This takes her to Bluebell Inn in North Carolina  There she meets Levi Bennett, who is running the inn with his sisters.  Mia and Levi are both very reserved, but slowly get to know each other.  There are complications with Levi's issues running the inn and Mia's past history.

I wanted to read Carolina Breeze because I enjoyed the first book in the Bluebell Inn series, Lake Season.

This was a very enjoyable read! Levi and Mia are both a bit closed off emotionally, and the reader gets to know them slowly as they get to know each other. They are both very sympathetic characters who want connection - although they approach it cautiously.

There is a fun subplot about a long-ago missing blue diamond that may or may not be at the inn.  I enjoyed the details of the search for the diamond!

There are also subplots about Molly (the protagonist of Lake Season) and her boyfriend and Grace, the youngest sister, who wants to start a business instead of going to college.

The Bluebell Inn series is faith-based and faith is handled beautifully in the books;  characters show their faith by their actions and strength of character.

I recommend Carolina Breeze (and the earlier book, Lake Season) highly for anyone looking for an enjoyable beach read or weekend book getaway!  I already am looking forward to the next book in this series.

My Review of Lake Season
After their parents die in a tragic accident, siblings Molly, Grace, and Levi Bennett pull together to open the family inn that their parents dreamed of.  During the renovation process, Molly finds a letter that was written in 1962 and never sent;  she decides to solve a decades old mystery and contact the letter's recipient.  She is helped by a guest at the inn (and her crush).  Adam Bradford is a reclusive writer working under a pseudonym.  He is immediately drawn to Molly, but he has secrets of his own.

I wanted to read Lake Season because I love Denise Hunter's books.  They are perfect beach reads populated by characters who are so likable and realistic.

Lake Season is a wonderful start for this new book series!  I really liked Molly, who is the focus of this story - and the little glimpses of her siblings too.  Molly and Adam are an intriguing romantic pair -- starting as friends, shyly getting to know each other, and working to solve the 1960's mystery.

And the 1962 mystery!  I loved the dual storyline about Lizzie (Elizabeth) Van Buren and her star-crossed love for Ben Schwartz.  The 1960's setting is charmingly evoked, and it adds so much to the story.  I enjoyed the way readers get to learn more about the mysterious letter as Molly and Adam did.

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed Lake Season!  I loved the characters (present day and 1960's), the romantic stories in both timelines, and the quaint North Carolina setting.  It definitely made me want to read the rest of the series.  Highly recommended for fans of women's fiction, small town romance, and dual storyline novels.

Dear Abby - Dachshund Memes

Hi friends!

I hope you are having a good week.  It is warm and summer-like here;  all is good in my corner of the world.

I have some fun little dachshund memes to share with you today.  Some of these were pictures I have posted on Doxieposse Pals on Facebook.

"Behold the Loch Ness Wiener."

I think this dachshund definitely deserves a bone!

As a semi-wiener (Dachshund - Jack Russell mix), my ears don't flip, but I hear this is very common with dachshunds!

I agree wholeheartedly with this!

Not a meme, but a cute little dachshund in a raincoat - and rain boots!  (from Pinterest)

"Life is Good!" This dachshund looks so cool in his sunglasses.

Two dachshunds deciding whether to bark or not ...

I hope you enjoyed these pictures and I hope you have a great weekend too!

Book Review and Giveaway - Masquerade at Middlecrest Abbey by Abigail Wilson

My Review
Masquerade at Middlecrest is a historical novel set during the Regency period. Elizabeth is a young unmarried mother. She marries Lord Torrington in haste and goes to live at his estate. However, not all is as it appears at the manor.  Lord Torrington is a spy for the king, and there is murder and mischief afoot.  As Elizabeth gets to know her new husband, she also has to stay safe - and keep her young son, Isaac, out of danger.

I wanted to read Masquerade at Middlecrest because I love Regency fiction. The synopsis was appealing and the author was new to me.

What a fun read!  This novel combines Regency romance, a Gothic setting, and a mystery with adventure.  It is very fast paced and one of those "stay up past my bedtime" novels.

Elizabeth was a brave, resourceful, and intelligent heroine.  I admired her great care for her son and her willingness to look out for Lord Torrington's young adult children as well. She was also very smart. There was a secret code in the storyline and it was interesting watching her break the code.

Adrian (Lord Torrington) was a thoroughly dreamy hero!  He is strong, courageous, and just the right amount of vulnerable.  From the beginning I thought he and Elizabeth were a perfect match.

The storytelling is clever and the descriptions really add to the book. I enjoyed the Gothic elements, like:

"The air turned bitter that evening as a harsh storm billowed against Middlecrest’s thick walls, rattling the windows like an anxious prisoner terrified to escape. Though I fell into a fitful sleep early on, I was shaken awake by the wind’s persistent howl and the ravaging bursts of hard rain. I sat up in bed, darkness haunting every corner of my bedchamber. The fire had smoldered to ashes in the grate, and the obstinate chill of night had already crept over the floorboards and climbed the bedposts, intent on covering every inch of the room. I hugged the coverlet beneath my chin as lightning framed the window, illuminating the unseen for seconds at a time before plunging the room back into a black abyss" (Kindle location 2210). 

This is my first read by Abigail Wilson, and I look forward to reading her other novels. I recommend Masquerade at Middlecrest Abbey for fans of historical fiction and Regency romance -- especially for anyone who also enjoys some Gothic and adventure elements.  This was a very enjoyable read!

Book Synopsis
n this new Regency romance, Elizabeth knows she must protect her heart from the charm of her new husband, Lord Torrington. She is not, however, prepared to protect her life.
When the widowed Lord Torrington agreed to spy for the crown, he never planned to impersonate a highwayman, let alone rob the wrong carriage. Stranded on the road with an unconscious young woman, he is forced to propose marriage to protect his identity and her reputation, as well as his dangerous mission.

Trapped not only by her duty to her country but also by her limited options as an unwed mother, Miss Elizabeth Cantrell and her infant son are whisked away to Middlecrest Abbey by none other than the elder brother of her son’s absent father. There she is met by Torrington’s beautiful grown daughters, a vicious murderer, and an urgent hunt for the missing intelligence that could turn the war with France. Meanwhile she must convince everyone that her marriage is a genuine love match if her new husband has any hope of uncovering the enemy.

Determined to keep her son’s true identity a secret, Elizabeth will need to remain one step ahead of her fragile heart, her uncertain future, and the relentless fiend bent on her new family’s ruin.
