Muffins Masks Murder (Auntie Clem’s Bakery Book 10) by P.D. Workman

Muffins Masks Murder

 

Muffins Masks Murder is the 10th book in the Auntie Clem’s Bakery Series by P.D. Workman. All of the books in this series are standalone, so you can read any or all of them as you wish. You don’t have to read the whole series if you aren’t of a mind to. That being said, I love the characters in this series and how they’re woven together in a series of stories that have been delightful to read and enjoy. I would highly recommend reading the whole series- it’s a lot of fun!

In this book, Erin Price has returned to her home in Bald Eagle Falls along with her coworker Vic and their boyfriends, Terry and Willie. But no sooner does Erin return to the bakery and begin working then she hears of a death. Thankfully, this time she’s not the one accused of having been responsible. But soon she finds out the Terry has been accused and that’s just as bad as if she had been the one accused. Erin quickly tries to get to the bottom of what happened and the more she tries to tie up loose ends, the more they seem to unravel.

A Dead Nephew (#6 in the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery Series) by Anna Celeste Burke

A Dead Nephew

A Dead Nephew by Anna Celeste Burke

 
A Dead Nephew is the 6th book in the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery Series. These books are all able to be read as standalones, however, they all have a certain amount of details that you would miss if you didn’t read them in order. I’ve read a few of them out of order and I still loved them, but I would have read them in order and gotten the full story had I paid attention to which book I was reading. They definitely have so much plot and character detail that they are worth reading from the first book to the last!
That being said, on to the book.
Dead Nephew starts with the death of a young Native man named Sacramento, and his friend Louie arrested for his murder. The two had been seen arguing earlier that evening and then they had hiked up in the hills to a favorite spot where Sacramento had taken his last breath. Louie couldn’t remember having killed his friend, but liquor had played a significant part in their evening and he couldn’t really remember much either way. But he told a strange story- one that got Jessica’s attention. One of an apparition that walked the desert and hills of the area seeking out the homeless and then taking their lives. Folks called him the Cleaner Man. Not sure if it was tribal hoax or coincidental mumbo jumbo, Jessica decided to look into it further. Taking the Cat Pack with her, she divided them up and each looked into a different area for information. It didn’t take long for someone to come looking for her. How does she always end up sticking her nose into the wrong places? And how will she keep her friends from suffering at the hands of the Cleaner Man? Is there really a Cleaner Man or is it really just an old wive’s tale?
This was a great story, and had quite a plot to it. One thing I loved was that it wasn’t just a quick once and done, but it actually went on for a while. The author establishes her characters, then she sticks with them for a while, like old friends. Her ability to draw you into the story is one of the reasons I come back to her books time after time.

Ozeri Ultra 42” Oscillating, Bluetooth Tower Fan

 

SONY DSC

 

I thought I had some pretty nice fans before but this fan takes the cake! It’s super stylish, with its sleek tower design and LED screen technology, it’s definitely a cut above the usual box or stand oscillating fan. This is the take everything you ever wished you could have in a fan and put it in a fan fan. To start with, it’s got oscillation, and you have choices. It will do regular oscillation or, for sleeping, it will do a pattern that changes so you don’t always know what is going to happen when or for how long. Hmmm, I am not sure about that one yet and I haven’t tried it because the fan is in the family room and I can’t tear it away to try it in my bedroom, ha ha! This fan has two height options when putting it together, the tower on its own attaches to the base, or you can attach an extension column for 10 inches more height. And the fan also has a remote control for controlling the fan, as well as Bluetooth capability for either Android or Apple devices.

You can choose from 3 different speed settings or 3 preprogrammed airflow settings, and you can even preset for up to 12 hours ahead in 1 hour increments. The LED screen tells you everything you need to know about the temperature, fan speed, programming, any setting that is in use at the time. It even holds the remote for you when it’s not in use so you won’t lose it. I am very happy with this fan and would definitely recommend it. Thumbs up!

The Ozeri Kitchen and Event Timer

The Ozeri Kitchen and Event Timer in White

I am so in love with this timer! Its numbers are so large that I can see them from across the room- much better than any timer I’ve ever encountered before. And it’s pretty easy to figure out how to use. It takes a single AAA (included) battery to use. It does come with instructions for those of us who need a little help figuring things out. There is a large window for viewing the timer on the top, and three buttons on the bottom. These buttons control the minutes, seconds, and start/stop function. You are able to use the device in timer mode or stopwatch mode depending on how you set it up. The directions were quite clear and simple. And the Ozeri Kitchen and Event Timer comes in an assortment of colors as well!

SONY DSC
Another feature that I really liked is that you have the choice of keeping your timer on a metal surface- as it’s magnetized, or you can use the little kickstand to set it on the counter or table close to where you are working, or, and I really loved this, they included a lanyard so that you can carry the timer with you as you go about your day and still be able to keep track of something in the oven or how long it’s been since you started soaking the wash, etc. What a great feature! So many times I’ve wished I could keep my timer with me. Now I can! Ozeri really hit this one out of the park!

The Lolita Conspiracy (Harry Starke Genesis Book 4) by Blair Howard

Lolita Conspiracy

The Lolita Conspiracy (Harry Starke Genesis Book 4) 

by Blair Howard

 

A chance encounter in a bar late one evening between Harry and an old school mate, Brandon Beck, who asks Harry for a favor- one of a questionable type. Harry refuses and they part ways. A short while later, Harry hears that Brandon has hung himself. Something sounds fishy to Harry so he does what Harry always does and starts asking questions. This story is going to go in so many unexpected directions you might wonder how the author comes up with his plot ideas. I sure do! What an excellent read! I never felt like I knew what was coming next and I felt like I was right there in the middle of the action! Great plot twists along with realistic characters make this a book worthy of reading, then passing along to someone you know loves a good read. Thumbs up!

A Revelation of Death – A Reverend Cici Gurule Mystery Book 4 by J. J. Cagney

Revelation of Death

A Revelation of Death – A Reverend Cici Gurule Mystery Book 4

by J. J. Cagney

I’ve read other books by this author and I must confess, this book, written so it can be read as a standalone, is so much better if it’s read with the other books in the series. The main character, Reverend Cici, is a great character that has developed over the course of the series as not only a really cool reverend but a kick ass heroine! She has been caught up in some really unique situations and come out cool as a cucumber. In this book, she finds that a family from her congregation has suffered the loss of their wife and mother to what appear at first to be a tragic accident. But things quickly prove that there’s more to the story and Cici finds herself smack dab in the middle of another macabre mystery. She continues to feel a psychic connection to her dead twin, who gives her clues to follow- somehow leading her closer to the next victim but also to the killer. Can Cici stay out of danger and still solve the crime?
I find the writing style of this author to be highly entertaining. I enjoy her books because they are original, with exciting plots and very well thought out characters. This book does not disappoint- just don’t start it unless you have some time to enjoy it. Thumbs up!

Delusions of the Past by P.D. Workman

Delusions of the Past

Delusions of the Past by P.D. Workman

Like the rest of the books in this series, Delusions of the Past is a standalone book, able to be read on its own. However, I have read the preceding books in the series and I would recommend reading each of them in order just because they play well off of each other and they are such a fun set to read!

Delusions of the Past is the 6th book in the Reg Rawlins, Psychic Investigator Series. In the last book, Reg had to find homes for the kattakyns while helping out a gnome who had nearly found himself imprisoned before she came to his aid and found a solution that worked for everyone. Now that everything has settled down again, Reg is ready for things to get back to normal until she notices that Starlight isn’t acting his usual self. Things go from bad to worse and she takes Starlight in to the vet, where he is kept over while they try to figure out what is going on with him. Is it a coincidence that her mother has been hanging around lately? And what did she do to Corvin? He’s been acting strange lately. Things are taking a turn in Black Sands…

The Peacemaker by Blair Howard

the peacemaker

The Peacemaker by Blair Howard

 

The Peacemaker by Blair Howard is a fast paced story about 2 ex M15 agents turned hired assassins that once worked together, then swore to kill each other, only to find themselves having to depend on each other in order to best an enemy that they never expected. This book takes off quickly and doesn’t let up, so don’t pick it up if you don’t have the time to enjoy it for a while. Characters flesh out very realistically and the plot is eerily believable. Mr Howard knows his stuff!

I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Telepathy of Gardens (Reg Rawlins, Psychic Investigator Book 5) by P.D. Workman

Reg Rawlins Psychic Investigator

 

This is Book 5 in the Reg Rawlins, Psychic Investigator Series. These books can be read as standalones, but I find them to be so clever and fun that I’d hate to miss even a single page of one of these books. That being said, I will refer to the preceding book for continuity.

In Night of Nine Tails (Reg Rawlins, Psychic Investigator Book 4), Reg depends on her friends and cohorts to help her when the Witch Doctor threatens to unleash his minions (called draugrs) upon Black Sands and take it over. They are able to capture and turn the draugrs into 9 kattakyns (like kittens). So now Reg is expected to help find homes for the kattakyns, from Black Sands to wherever they can go, the farther away the better. After all, the success of their work depends on the kattakyns never being able to gather together again and take form as the Witch Doctor. But Reg is sidetracked when she finds a little man crying in her yard. Between trying to help the man’s brother and finding homes for all of the kattakyns, Reg has her hands full as usual.
A whimsical and delightful book in true form as only Ms Workman can write!

Hidden Valley Ranch Secret Sauce

Hidden Valley3

Hidden Valley Ranch Secret Sauce

As soon as I heard the name Hidden Valley, I knew I wanted to try this new sauce. Anything they make has to be good, right? Well, they have three new restaurant-inspired Secret Sauces, Original, Smokehouse, and Spicy.  I love me some Hidden Valley Ranch, don’t get me wrong, but I just had to try the Smokehouse Secret Sauce and see what all the fuss was about. I’m. A. Convert. This stuff is what dreams are made of! It’s all the creamy dreamy stuff we love about Hidden Valley Ranch plus a kick of Smoky goodness for good measure. Hello! I couldn’t wait long enough to make dinner to try it out.

I plopped a good measure of fries into the air fryer cuz, hey, fries just aren’t they same if they don’t have that crunch factor. Then I sat down with my son and we devoured, I mean DEVOURED the whole plate in minutes! We licked our fingers clean! I felt like a little kid! I love this stuff! I’m going to have to watch how often I allow this in my house or I’ll have to go on a diet. I haven’t had the chance to try the Hidden Valley Ranch Spicy Secret Sauce yet, but the launch for these yummy sauces is supposed to occur on April 1st. I can wait, barely. What would you try these sauces on?
