The Fortune Café was visited in the stories but just casual.
There are three stories by three different authors. There is plenty of drama, romance and characters that I liked. They were pretty clean stories. Some mild swearing. I can't decide what stories I like better.
The setting is a small California beach community. They all have a love of old things like Antiques. In fact a few fights for the same antiques.
There is plenty of humor and laughter in the stories. There is also some sad times too. Dealing with lost of loved ones and what they were left.
Based on these stories I would read more books from Julie Wright, Melanie Jacobson and Heather B. Moore.
I liked Boardwalk Antiques.

I have so much fun reading this series. I liked Soldiers of Fortune. I laughed so hard at some of these situation that they get into. So much drama, action and mystery. It is also a clean read.
The characters are such a wide range of characters. Fortune is the main character. She is a CIA Assassin hiding in the small town of Sinful, Louisiana. As a yankee who inherited her Aunts house.
She is hiding because a gun runner put a contract out on her and a mole in the CIA gave them her real name.
Ida Belle and Gertie are not your average senior citizens. They were spies during Vietnam War. They still have lots of skills and try to solve the town problems. They are the only ones who know what and who Fortune is.
There is a new Mayor in town. She has fired the sheriff and put her own relative in town that no one likes or trusts. Carter is still out on sick leave. A bomb goes off in the swamp most people think it was a still that exploded. But really a meth lab. No one is investigating. So the three of them start to investigate on the side.
If you like good snappy dialog and funny situations with strong characters pick up A Miss Fortune Mystery.
I so want Carter to find out the truth but don't know how things will work out for them

Celebrating A Christ-Centered Easter is a good way to remember what the Easter holiday is about. Emily has broken it down to seven parts of the story of what was going on at that time with our Savior through seven people who had good examples and relationships with him.
She uses these for seven weeks to strengthen her family's relationship to Christ. 1.Lazarus 2 Simon 3 Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus 4 three different Marys 5 Thomas 6 Diciples on the road to Emmaus 7 Jesus Christ She shares how she celebrates each week with these people who had dealings with the Savior, songs, activities to draw her family closer together and to remember the savior.
I like the traditions of the red eggs. I did not realize what coloring the eggs meant.
This book is a fast read. Or you can spend a lot of time really learning the lessons, read the scripture accounts, sing the songs and do the activities of service and other things with the idea to bring Christ into our lives more fully.
I like Emily's writing style and the tone of her books. I have now only read two of them so far and I have loved both. I would read more books from Emily Belle Freeman in the future.
I was given this book so that I could honestly give my own opinion of Celebrating A Christ-Centered Easter and be part of its book tour....more

It is amazing how many mysteries Rags finds. This is a light hearted mystery that deals with some tough subjects. Some of the twists I saw coming and others I was surprised at. It keeps you guessing.
Mansion of Meows is a fast easy read and a clean read. Cat lovers will like a couple of the rooms in the mansion. Plus all the cats. Rags is a cat that steals. Sometimes the things he takes are clues to a crime or mystery. His owner is Savannah and Michael Ivie.
Rags documentary is scheduled for it's debut. It is going to take place at a mansion in San Francisco. His human stars are all showing up to it. They are staying in cottages at the estate. Rags is treated like a king.
Oh course there is secrets in the mansion and Rags is in the thick of things. Until he is not. I do find it hard to believe that the secret remained a secret for so long.
I like this one scene when a lady for the documentary is telling Savannah about it. Then tells her she can't sit in front.
I have read 7 out of the 9 books in the Klepto Cat Mystery series and have enjoyed reading them. I still would like to read the two I have missed.
I was given this ebook to read by the author so that I could give a honest review and be part of Mansion of Meows blog tour....more

I like Scarlet and her brother Bur. They are always teasing, arguing just like brothers and sisters to growing up. They have nicknames taken from clue. As does there friend from childhood and Scarlet's boyfriend Kenny. They are very witty, and bring smiles and laughter.
There is plenty of mystery, action, drama, family and cast of characters that you come to care about. It has lot of heart, caring for those around them. It has a lot of slapstick type almost humor abound it. It is also a clean read.
This book can stand alone but is better if you have read the Scarlet Wilson mysteries in the right order because a lot of the characters are in the other stories.
I also had to laugh about the reading choices of books the characters were reading. If you are a fan of Sara Barton you might recognize the books too.
This is a fun cozy mystery. I was right in guessing who was behind everything that was going on in the Four Acorns Inn. There was action every time you thought that they stopped the persons who were harassing them, spying on them and breaking into the Inn.
All the food they talked about made me want to eat it too.
I like reading Sara Barton Mysteries and will continue to read her books and I hope to see more of Miz Scarlet in the future.
I was given this ebook by Sara Barton to read but was having trouble loading it on my kindle so I just went and bought it from Amazon because I did want to read it last night and not on my computer. This is my own opinion of Bewildered Bridegroom....more
