“MUMBO GUMBO MURDER is definitely a home run and I’ll be keeping this baby on my keeper shelf for the next years to come!”
~ Under the Covers
Oh man, Laura Childs really knows how to write a good Cozy Mystery series. I’ve been reading her other series, the Teashop Mystery series, and have really fallen in love with her writing style. So when I jumped back into this world, I realized just how much I enjoy her ability to change styles so easily.
This series is a lot more crazy and fun but still contains so much great conflict and mystery. I absolutely love the New Orleans backdrop of this series because it brings a totally fresh vibe and when you pair that with Childs’s writing, you really get something special.
I really don’t know how to express how much I enjoyed MUMBO GUMBO MURDER but it’s definitely one of my favorite books of the year! Packed with intrigue and mystery, this book has so amazing things in it. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who likes bright characters and mysterious settings because it truly is different from the other Cozy Mystery series I’ve read. In fact, out of all of Childs’s series, this one just might be my favorite.
MUMBO GUMBO MURDER is definitely a home run and I’ll be keeping this baby on my keeper shelf for the next years to come!

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!
