A Cozy Cookbook by Dianne Harman author of Cozy Mysteries

About the book 
I began cooking when I was a small child, and as I got older, it became a passion of mine. I was fortunate that as an adult I was able to attend cooking schools throughout the world and learn from some fabulous chefs.When I started writing cozy mysteries, I decided to add five recipes at the back of each of the books, dishes that the characters had eaten or described in that particular book. I had no idea they would become so popular. As I continued to write more cozy mysteries, all of which had recipes included in the addendum, many readers wrote and said they wanted to make one of the recipes, but couldn’t remember which book it was in. So, by popular request, I have begun to consolidate the recipes from my cozy mystery series: Cedar Bay, Liz Lucas, High Desert, Midwest, Northwest, and Cottonwood Springs, into a series of cookbooks. This is the first book in the series.My only hope is you enjoy them as much as my readers and I have. They are all recipes I have used and are in my personal collection. Bon appetit!

And I thought 
What a yummy treat!
I enjoyed this delightful cookbook.  Author Dianne Harman shares some of her favorites including a few appetizers, breads and cakes, main dishes and more. 
I plan to cook the breakfast casserole that is made with only 4 eggs.
I've seen other recipes that require way more eggs.  This one sounds really good.
The Stuffed Baked Pasta Shells are on my list to try.
And for dessert I have to try the Dutch Killer Chocolate it looks just like on my mom used to make.  
There are also Decadent Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies...Hello
and Super Easy English Trifle. 

I enjoyed the Kindle version I received but, the print version is on my wish list.  I love a good cookbook and A Cozy Cookbook is one. 

My only negative was that I wish that there had been an addition of the recipes that have appeared in the books.  I would have enjoyed reading about the books too. 

I received a complimentary copy from the author. 
My review will appear on Amazon and Good Reads. 
A Cozy Cookbook will be featured on My Journey Back the Journey Back and promoted on social media.

Murder, She Encountered by Peg Cochran-Great Escapes Tour

About the book 
A gutsy Manhattan socialite encounters murder and corruption at the World’s Fair in this captivating historical cozy mystery for readers of Victoria Thompson, Susan Elia MacNeal, and Rhys Bowen.
New York City, 1939. A rising star at the Daily Trumpet, Elizabeth “Biz” Adams has been sent to the World’s Fair—billed as the “World of Tomorrow,” a look toward a brighter future even as the drumbeats of war grow louder—to cover a robbery. What she stumbles upon instead is a dead woman, dumped into the Aquacade’s pool with a nylon stocking wrapped around her neck.
Elizabeth snaps a photo as the police arrest Joey Dorman, a gentle young hot dog vendor who made no secret of his obsession with the murder victim. Even though she’s thrilled that her photo makes the front page, the fear and confusion evident on Joey’s face are haunting. So Elizabeth vows to prove his innocence—or his guilt—with her partner at the Daily Trumpet, Ralph Kaminsky. Meanwhile, her romance with Detective Sal Marino is heating up, and Elizabeth is more determined than ever to follow her heart.
But when Kaminsky’s efforts to expose the real killer land him in the hospital, Elizabeth is forced to continue the investigation on her own. And as she tries to narrow down the long list of suspects, she discovers a dark secret running through the Fair—a secret some would kill to protect.
Look for all of Peg Cochran’s delightful mysteries featuring Elizabeth Adams, which can be read together or separately:

Southern Harm by Caroline Fardig-Great Escapes Tours

About the book 
A little Southern charm never killed anybody—until now—in an enchanting cozy mystery from the USA Today bestselling author of Southern Discomfort and the Java Jive novels.
After solving a murder at a local restaurant, Quinn Bellandini just wants to get back to her comfortable life running her grandfather’s B&B in Savannah, Georgia, with her sister, Delilah. But those plans get buried when Quinn and her new boyfriend, Tucker Heyward, dig up an old skeleton while doing some landscaping in his aunt Lela’s backyard. Before long, Lela becomes the prime suspect in the thirty-three-year-old unsolved murder of a high school homecoming queen.
Tucker is devastated. But Quinn’s conscience won’t let her risk an elderly woman spending her twilight years in jail for a crime she didn’t commit. And Delilah, bored by the quiet B&B biz, has been itching to do some more investigating of her own.
Soon they’re questioning a growing list of suspects, from nosy neighbors and snooty Savannah socialites to mild-mannered teachers and old high-school friends of the victim—including Quinn and Delilah’s own parents. But no one is safe from a killer who’s totally old school.

About the book 
Too many suspects can be as bad as no suspects at all…
Lark Davis, horse trainer and reluctant amateur sleuth, is sure that her crime-solving days are behind her. At least that’s what she told her grandmother. However, when her Homeowners Association President and owner of the local hardware store is found dead the day after she had a public fight with him, Lark is back in the last place she wants to be — the middle of a murder case.
But this is Barrow Bay, and things are never as they seem. Gerald Pratchett had a list of enemies a mile long, and each one had a very real reason for wanting to see him gone. When the police get overwhelmed with too many suspects, including herself, Lark realizes that it is up to her to bring his killer to justice.
Nothing can stop Lark from finding out the truth — and getting her man.

And others are saying
Fun, funny, and super fast-paced, this is a series not to be missed.

Strangely, Lisa seems more concerned with selling houses than she does with her sister’s death.

A Fatal Fondness by Richard Audry-Great Escapes Tour-Review/Character Guest Post

About the book 
It’s September 1902, and Mary MacDougall has fulfilled her greatest dream—opening her own detective agency. But this achievement doesn’tcome without complication.
Mary’s father insists that an older cousin come to work with her—as both secretary and minder. Jeanette Harrison pledges to keep the plucky sleuth away from danger, as well as from her unsuitable suitor Edmond Roy. This arrangement, embarrassingly, makes Mary the only detective in the state with a chaperone.
The new agency’s first cases hardly seem to portend danger or significance. There’s the affair of the nicked napkin rings…the problem of the purloined pocket watch…and the matter of the four filched felines.
Mary and Jeanette have not the slightest notion that one of these modest little jobs will blow up into the most consequential and perilous case of the heiress-sleuth’s budding career. What begins in triviality mushrooms into disappearance, betrayal, international intrigue, and murder. As she learns more and more, Mary’s prospects for making the acquaintance of an assassin’s blade improve exponentially.
Witty, fast-paced, and enthralling, A Fatal Fondness—the fourth tale in the series—delves deeply into Mary’s world and paints the portrait of an unconventional young woman ever-ready to defy propriety for the sake of justice.
Character guest post
Robert Sauer
Detective, Duluth Police Department

Title: Mary MacDougall and a Natural Talent for Detecting

I have known about John MacDougall for years. Anyone who lives in Duluth, Minnesota does. He’s among the Zenith City’s most distinguished citizens—a businessman of acumen and honesty and a native Scotsman with a knack for turning one dollar into many.

But I can’t say that I knew much more about him than the accounts I occasionally came across in the newspapers. I didn’t know the millionaire was widowed, and had a son and a daughter. I particularly didn’t know that, round about last Christmas, I would run into his girl at the house of another millionaire and have my world… Well, not exactly turned upside-down. Rather more like it wobbled a bit. Because I can tell you, whenever you run into Mary MacDougall, interesting things start to happen.

My name is Robert Sauer and I’ve been a detective on the Duluth police force for over five years. Before that I walked beats downtown and in the West End. I came to police work from the navy.

We received an urgent call one evening early last December, the holiday season of 1901. A very valuable item had gone missing at the house of Mrs. Ensign—a sapphire called the Star of the North. Of course, when someone such as Mrs. Ensign has a problem, we public servants hop to it. I arrived at her house and began interviewing the guests, including Miss MacDougall. I asked what she might have seen that evening and the evening before, when she handled the jewel at a concert. All of sudden, she turned the tables on me, interrogating me about my plan to catch the culprit. She wanted to know why, if Scotland Yard was collecting fingerprints, weren’t we?

The next day she came to visit me at headquarters with yet more questions. She was as uppity a young woman as I’ve ever met—and I’ve met a few. If she’d been anyone else’s daughter, I’d have told her off and sent her on her way. I thought she was unusually curious about police work. Nosy, not to put too fine a point on it.

I had no idea that, as I was checking out known jewel thieves, she was working the case from her side—in her amateur but canny manner. And, by golly, what should she go and do but crack the thing wide open. She was in just the right place to spot the ultimate clue. A single little anomaly that no one else had spotted.

Well, thought I, beginner’s luck.

I was disabused of that notion a few weeks later. I happened to be visiting friends down in Minneapolis, one them a police captain. He asked if anything of interest had happened up north lately. And I told him about the theft of the sapphire and how, of all things, a girl had solved the case. Daughter of a millionaire, in fact. Quite unaccountably, he began to laugh.

“Miss Mary MacDougall?” he said.

“Yessss,” I said warily.

“Last summer she provided vital information to Opdahl—”

“The Minneapolis detective?”

He gave a nod. “—that ended a kidnapping ring. Saved an innocent man from a long stretch in Stillwater.”

Not beginner’s luck after all, it would seem.

And that was why, when the young lady stopped to visit me last winter and spring, I didn’t shoo her away. In fact, once or twice I had her do some discreet surveillance for me, though strictly on the QT. When Miss MacDougall told me, at a Decoration Day fête, that she would be vacationing in Upper Michigan, I informed her of a matter regarding a woman committed to an asylum there, who had died. Miss MacDougall sorted it out, after a manner, but somehow managed to end up in jail. Her father was not pleased about that, and neither was my boss, the police chief. As a result, I nearly lost my position. But my young friend—for I do count her a friend—defended me fiercely, saving my neck.

Then there was the recent matter of the body in St. Louis Bay. But that, I’m sorry to tell you, is top secret. This time were I to share the details, and how Miss MacDougall was involved, I genuinely would get the sack.

I can only say, in conclusion, that I have never known anyone, man or woman, with the natural talent for detecting that Miss Mary MacDougall has. Heaven only knows where it will take her.

Secrets And LIes by P.H. Turner- Great Escapes Tour-Review

About the book
Shot to death in his home, Morgan Tutwiler leaves behind a multimillion-dollar business and a daughter who hasn’t spoken to him in years. And she isn’t alone in wanting him dead. Plenty of people wanted the most hated man in Denver dead in P. H. Turner’s latest novel in the Claire Callahan series.
Reminiscent of the finest gumshoe storytelling, Secrets and Lies, would not be complete without Turner’s signature quirky characters and inventive plot.
And I thought
A fast page suspenseful read is always entertaining. I enjoyed this one.
The story/plot kept me engaged from page one where the murder is committed.  No waiting around with alot of extra story.  Just bam or Bang should I say and we have a murder to investigate.

The main charcter P.I. Claire Callahan has a working relation with dectective  Rafe Brewster.   Since they decided to keep everthing professional between them they help each out with investigations.  
Personally I am rooting for Rafe. You can sense the attraction the two. 

But Rafe and Claire each have family issues that might need to be cleared up first. Rafe is struggling with custody of his daughter  and Claire's no account dad shows needing a place to stay bringing the mob knocking at the door.

I enjoyed the all the characters. The main characters and those involved in the  crime(s)as either participants, witnesses or victims.   

I do expect to see a few return because although the crimes are solved we are left with a bit of a cliff-hanger.

I enjoyed Secrets And Lies book 2 of the series. I have added book 1 to my TBR list.

I liked the cover and would pick this one up even though the synopsis did not give me as much information as I would prefer.

I received a complimentary copy.

Dangerous Questions by Joyce T. Strand-Beck Valley Tours-Review/Giveaway

Murder or deception? Despite repeated warnings to back off, Emily Lazzaro asks some dangerous questions about the disappearance of her employee from the Mane Stay B&B that she manages. When a body is discovered at a new winery opened by a friend, she fears the worst. Her single-mindedness turns into a compulsion and threatens her relationship with her potential husband. Nonetheless, she vows to get answers.

Available to buy from...... 

About Emily Lazzaro
Emily Lazzaro is the daughter of Wayne Lazzaro, the winemaker for the Hilltop Sunset winery in the previously published three Brynn Bancroft mysteries. She moved with her fiancé to Ramona, Calif., a rural community near San Diego, following graduation from college with a degree in hospitality. Her fiancé was eager to purchase a vineyard and develop a winery in the up and coming Ramona wine region, which suited Emily’s goals.

However, after moving to Ramona, it becomes apparent to Emily that she is not a good match for her fiancé. She discovers that he does not respect her opinions and insists on making decisions without her input. So she breaks off the engagement.

She decides to remain in Ramona despite her fiancé living there with his new vineyard. She appreciates the unique rocky terrain and proximity to the ocean and San Diego, along with the mixture of fine wineries, artists, and equestrian activities.  She makes her living doing people’s taxes, and when Dangerous Changes opens, we discover she is looking to make a career change.

Also available:
Dangerous Changes (An Emily Lazzaro Mystery)
A series of events rattle Emily Lazzaro: a near-death encounter with a pickup on a narrow mountain road, the murder of a would-be client, and an ex-fiancé who won’t let go. Can she survive a police investigation, pressure from her ex’s company, and the suspicions of a possible new love-interest—so that she can make the changes to create a meaningful new life in a special town in southern California?

Dangerous Delays (An Emily Lazzaro Mystery)

Finding a corpse buried with Native American artifacts wasn’t the first delay of the renovation Emily faced. But she was not prepared for what followed. A murder investigation, excavation to uncover more artifacts, and drug dealers looking for missing product further delay the mansion's restoration into an iconic B&B. While facing these setbacks, Emily is also realizing her growing attraction to a local chef, a man who believes a relationship isn't possible due to his commitment to care for his brain-injured brother.

About the Author
Joyce T. Strand is the author of who-done-it contemporary and historical mysteries set in San Francisco, the Napa-Sonoma wine regions of California, and in Ventura and Ramona, California.

Her contemporary novels, written as stand-alone trilogies, feature protagonists Jillian Hillcrest, a publicist in Silicon Valley; Brynn Bancroft, a financial guru in transition to winemaker from corporate executive, who was Jillian's boss in the Jillian Hillcrest mysteries trilogy; and Emily Lazzaro, the daughter of the winemaker in the Brynn Bancroft trilogy, who has moved to a small California town and become the manager of a bed and breakfast.

Her first historical mystery, The Judge's Story, tells the story of a Superior Court Judge with a passion for social justice as well as the law who strives to discover the truth behind the mystery of a robbery-murder in a small California town in 1939. Her second historical mystery, The Reporter's Story, features a young female reporter in 1912 San Francisco who confronts murder, intrigue, and smuggling on her way to becoming a world-recognized reporter.

None of these sleuths goes looking for crimes to solve, but they are all drawn in when they confront murder, burglaries, and fraud.

All of her novels are inspired by actual events and/or real people, although they are definitely fictionalized.

Much like her protagonist Jillian Hillcrest, Strand headed corporate communications at several biotech and high-tech companies in California's Silicon Valley for more than 25 years. Unlike Jillian, however, she did not encounter murder in her career. She focused on writing by-lined articles, press releases, white papers, and brochures to publicize her companies and their products and welcomed the opportunity to turn to fiction.

Strand lives with her collection of cow statuary in Southern California, and enjoys exploring and writing about the growing wine region in the Ramona Valley near San Diego. She received her Ph.D. from the George Washington University, Washington, D.C. and her B.A. from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA
