I just loved this book. Once again the author has created another well thought out story where so much happens that you never get time to breath, let alone get board. The characters are fun and likeable and with book three you have got to know them so well that they feel like old friends, Julienne's friend Porshe isn't in this book so much but it more than makes up for it with the addition of the hunky British M15 agent Liam, which very much complicates her life. The mystery was good and had ple ...more

This is the second book I have read in this series. I read the first book and now this book. I have gone out of order. Yet, that is the nice thing about this series as the books can be read as stand alone novels. Therefore, out of chronological order.

As I pointed out from the first book that the reason that I liked Julienne is because I found her to be sensible. She is still sensible but slowly maturing. Her skills as an investigator are getting better. Although, it did not hurt that she had he

Julienne and company are back with this awesome cozy mystery set in Colorado Springs.

Spiked by Avery Daniels finds event planner Julienne LaMere with a last minute wedding to coordinate at the Colorado Springs Resort. The bride-to-be has a charming brother who is easy on the eyes, but Julienne is still upset over her breakup with Mason and isn't sure she is ready to open up her heart to Liam.

Although this book is 3rd in the series, let me start by telling you that it does just fine as a standalone, so this is a good place to start even if you haven't read the other two. If you have, then you'll recognize the characters as they are recurring, however, they are all well developed enough to get to know and follow along. Fun story about a resort event planner who just keeps getting caught up in murder investigations in spite of herself. Of course, you have the required hunk boyfriend, p ...more
Julienne LaMere doesn`t particularly like weddings. She does her best as an event planner, but because of her own rocky romantic past, helping someone she doesn`t even know plan the happiest day of her life is not high on the list of enjoyable assignments.
When almost immediately Julienne is revisited by a nightmare, in the form of a homicide detective, and discovers the bride`s brother has MI5 connections, she wonders if this event could get any worse. Spoiler alert ~ it can.

Although there are r

Ughhh. What could possibly be more stressful than moving a wedding job up? How about also dealing with a pushy detective who thinks our Julienne is involved in yet another murder mystery. Oh, and the brother of the bride is super hot, and super interested in super single (okay not super single, and certainly not super over Mason) Julienne. And he works for MI5. Yeah, THAT MI5. Oh yeah. This’ll be a breeeeeeze.

This is another fantastic cozy mystery with warm, well written characters and a fantast

Julianne is a fun character and sleuth. This is the third book in the series, It was just a little slow for me but I enjoyed the mystery. It will be interesting to see if her and Mason ever find their way back to each other. I love the location of Colorado Springs Resort and Daniel's descriptive writing style. I voluntarily reviewed a copy I received from the author. ...more

Ms Daniel's has done it again. This series has it all- believable romance, entertaining characters and a mystery to solve. Sassy Julienne made me laugh, Liam made me swoon and the descriptions of the Colorado Springs Resort made me believe I was there. Looking forward to the next installment. ...more

Nice Read!

I like these stories; this one was a little slow for me. I love that Porsche, and her boyfriend have gotten together. This mystery is smart; it just needed to be more realistic. I love Mason! I liked Liam in this book. However, both men, Liam, and Mason come out like teenage boys by the end? I prefer Alpha Males. I will be looking forward to the next book, hopefully with grown-up behavior by both couples!
I recommend! Enjoy!

Spiked is the third book in Avery Daniel's Resort to Murder series and is an exciting contemporary cozy mystery. If you like Cleo Coyle, Maddy Hunter, Duffy Brown, Lynn Cahoon, Leighann Dobbs, and Annette Dashofy, then you'll love this series with a strong intelligent sleuth, lavish settings, and tantalizing mysteries.

Read this spunky clean cozy mystery and start enjoying Julienne's adventures today!

I enjoyed this book but thought there was too much angsty romance that took away from the story. But if you like a lot of romance then don't listen to me! The plot was interesting, and I like that Julienne is smart and independent. I didn't guess who it was until the very end.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a voluntary, honest review.
