Glitter Bomb by Laura Childs

Whenever fall rolls around, I always get excited to read more Cozy Mysteries. And I’m super happy to note that Laura Childs, one of my favorite Cozy Mystery authors, has a new book out this month. GLITTER BOMB is part of the Scrapbooking series, my all-time favorite series from her and I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Lots of fun with some interesting conflicts, I really enjoyed seeing the dynamic between Carmela and her ex-husband, Shamus. He was such a great addition to this series and I honestly never get tired of seeing him whenever he walks across the page.

One Perfect Kiss by Jaci Burton

I’m happy to say that Jaci Burton delivers yet another sinfully sweet story in the Hope series. I really enjoy this series for its softer and charming vibe compared to her other series. The characters are ones that we have seen before so if you have been following this series, I’m sure you’ll be happy to see the HEA of this book.

Wild Hunger by Chloe Neill

Chloe Neill completed her Chicagoland Vampires series, saddening quite a few fans. However, she has returned with a spin-off series called the Heirs of Chicagoland. The first book is called WILD HUNGER and I had the pleasure of reading it early. I’m glad to say that the series does feel refreshed and unique and the characters in this new series aren’t carbon copies of their parents. I think if you’re a fan of the world Neill created, then you will certainly enjoy this book too. I’m glad there’s something more to look forward to in this world because I wasn’t quite ready to let go of it yet,

Buried in Books by Kate Carlisle

As a big fan of this series, I was really looking forward to the newest instalment to the series. I’m so happy to say that this author once again delivers a fun read filled with twists and turns. I really love falling back in love with these characters and getting to see how they work hard to solve a crime. If you haven’t read this series yet, you’re really missing out!

Wedding Cake Crumble by Jenn McKinlay

This month we lucky readers get a new instalment in the Cupcake Barkery series by Jenn McKinlay. Since this is book ten in the series, it’s probably best to read the series in order. The main reason why is say this is because one of the main characters of the series is getting married in it so it won’t have the same impact if you aren’t familiar with the characters. This book contains a lot of fun mystery but also a lot of heartwarming moments as well. I think if you’re a fan of Romance and want to try a Cozy Mystery out, this series might be just the thing for you. It has plenty of upbeat personality to charm your pants off.

Plum Tea Crazy by Laura Childs

The next fantastic installment in the Tea Shop Mysteries. This book was written perfectly and I really can’t find any flaws in it at all. It’s truly a great read from beginning to end.

Lake Silence by Anne Bishop

This book marks a change in the series as we have a new narrator. The heroine is fierce and funny, a nice contrast to the previous one so I think it’s a great way to bring something new to the series.

Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs

This is another great installment to the Alpha Omega series but if you aren’t caught up with the Mercy Thompson series, I suggest reading that one first.

Shot on Gold by Jaci Burton

With the Winter Olympics upon us, I really thought that this book was a great installment to the series. Featuring two athletes in different sports, they find love in an unexpected place. But what I found the most impressive about this book is the fact that there’s a real focus on the sports. I don’t enjoy the sports romances that claim to be about the sport but don’t actually explore anything about it. This one has a good balance of the sport and the romance.

Collision Course by Marie Harte

COLLISON COURSE by Marie Harte is one of my most anticipated reads. I always look forward to these fun and sexy books but I was especially excited for Lou Cortez’s book. Uber sexy and charming, this book totally captures his personality to a tee. Harte delivers a fantastic romance with some really nice sizzling sex scenes too. I loved the combination of sweet and sexy in this book, showing that Harte can write it all! This book will definitely warm you up for the upcoming winter months!
