“It felt more purposeful and direct.”
~ Under the Covers

So I know what you’re thinking… what are you doing reading this series again, Annie? The answer is…well, perhaps I enjoy this series more than I thought. Although my previous reviews of these books tend to be a little wishy-washy, I always find myself picking up these books whenever a new one is released. I think some of the charm that lies within it is that it really is a slow-paced series, which is great, especially when you’re life is as busy as mine. It’s a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the quiet time that I so rarely get.

Although the majority of the books tend to have a slow pace, I found that THREAD ON ARRIVAL does have more suspense to it. I think that is because the murder is a stabbing. It felt more purposeful and direct rather than poisoning or the victim falling to his death or something like that. With the stronger intention, it create more intrigue.

BUT if you’re a big fan of the slow and steadiness of this series, fear not. It’s still very much there, but perhaps the author is trying to add something a little different to her books. It’s a fun book and I think if you’re a Cozy fan, this one will be enjoyable to read.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
