Beware The East Wind by Barbara Barret -Great Escapes Tour-Review

About the book
Beware the east wind! It’s hurricane season in Florida, and everyone’s attention is focused on preparing for the latest tempest. But in Serendipity Springs, mah jongg pals Marianne, Sydney, Micki and Kat are caught in a different kind of whirlwind—a mesmerizing murder case involving a slain hypnotist/chef and the woman police suspect of doing her in, her embittered catering partner, Portia.

And others are saying 
Barbara Barrett makes me want to move to Serendipity Springs, play Mah Jongg and join the four members for coffee!

A nice addition to this cozy mystery series. We catch back up with the eclectic group of mah jongg players just in time for hurricane season.

And I thought
The girls are at it again in this 4th book in this cozy, fun and sometimes hilarious series. 
Beware The East Wind has Syd and the gang more experienced in solving crimes and less wary of getting involved. 
As their unique way of investigating begins to make Portia 
the polices person of interest a bit crazy with their style the suspect list grows and real investigating begins
The guys are back and more aware of whats going on with their ladies and more in tune to the investigation.  Trip and Beau play a little gold while the ladies do 'their plotting' according to Beau but 
the guys are really keeping more of an eye on the women they anyone really knows. 
This is a fun and quirky group that doesn't hesitate to solve mysterious murders and help out their friends. 
I enjoy the characters in this series and I liked that Barbara Barrett made the husbands Trip and Beau more a part of the story.
The cover made me want to pick this one up.  I like it when a cover tells a little of the story and draws you in. 
If you enjoy a good cozy myster pick up Beware The East Wind 
you'll enjoy it along with the previous 3 in the series.  Each book 
is written as a stand alone and for this reader they get better with each new title. 

I received a complimentary copy. 
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads and 
Beware the East Wind will be promoted on social media and a part of Christmas suggestions at My Journey Back - The Journey Back blog.

  1. Thanks for your kind review. Your take on the humor and friendship in the book are right on point, exactly what I intended. Although the niche in this series is Mah Jongg, you don't need to know how to play to enjoy these books.


    1. Thanks I enjoy them. I will review on retail sites in a bit. Best wishes.
