Recommended: The White Magic Five and Dime

Today we have a guest review from roving reader, Lucy.

I just finished a book that I loved so much I thought I’d pass it along. It’s “The White Magic Five and Dime” by Steve Hockensmith and Lisa Falco. I think it’s truly the best of the genre, which is cozy with a touch of magic on the side. I fell in love with Steve Hockensmith’s writing with his Home on the Range series, although I haven’t had the courage to dip into his Jane Austin / zombie apocalypse series yet. But anyway, the White Magic is such a totally new approach to a tired genre that I just savored it. I used to read mostly cozies but they got so repetitive that I wouldn’t even pick up this one. The third in the series is already out. I finally picked it up and they do such a good job that it didn’t seem tired and old at all.

I think it’s more than I usually spend on books, but this time it’s worth it.

Thank you, Lucy!

So you know how I am into fonts–I’d just like to say I think the artist got a weee bit carried away on the fonts for Home on the Range. 🙂

Review: Murder at the Courthouse

Murder at the Courthouse Five Stars

I picked this up a while back. I didn’t know it was considered Christian fiction when I started reading, but was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn’t preachy. It’s just a good mystery with great characters. There’s one character who prays a lot, but it fits in with both her personality and the events going on at the time. She’s not obnoxious about it, but if you happen to dislike that kind of thing, it’s easy to skip because it’s kept in her areas. The characters were fun to meet and get to know. They’re realistic and complex with some heart-tugging moments as the story grows. I was pretty sure I knew who the murderer was about three quarters of the way through, but there was so much else going on that it didn’t matter a whit. This is a good read for cozy readers and general mystery readers. There’s plenty of action and a great cast of characters to care about.

Definitely recommended.
