Review: A Ghostly Undertaking

When I first started this book, I found it a bit hard to get into. It didn’t seem to have enough Southern charm, but by the time I reached the halfway point, I was taking back this opinion. it took a bit of time for that charm to unfold, but it did, and it resulted in a delightful story.

The same could be said of Jack Henry too, whose character was very sweet. The story […]

Review: To Die Fur

This is such a fun series. I was laughing out loud in multiple spots, and giggling like crazy in others.

Each part is written with a lot of humour and they do all fit together in the end. The humour in this book is what I really loved. It fit my mood perfectly while reading this, and led me to really enjoy the story. The plot itself was […]

Review: A Taste Fur Murder

This is an utterly delightful and amusing cozy mystery featuring a lot of animals and a strong dose of the paranormal. With dead cats and ectoplasmic dogs helping her, Foxtrot is tasked with preventing the murder of her boss ZZ by unknown parties in order to save a special graveyard. Throw in a heap of humour, a dash of romance, and a large eclectic cast of characters, and this makes for a very fun read. Foxtrot is quite likable, and easy to understand. She’s a kind hearted animal lover who adores her boss and her crazy life. She manages to […]
