Ride the Rainbow Home by Susan Aylworth: Book Review

Ride the Rainbow Home has a cover depicting a girl sitting at the edge of a canyon. One that looked much like the Grand Canyon. The Arizona setting drew me in. And it turned out to be a good story.

The Murder Pit by Jeff Shelby: Book Review

The Murder Pit brings us yet another woman sleuth, this time created by a man. I think this is the first cozy, women sleuths mystery I have read that has been written by a guy.

They live in cold cold Minnesota, in a suburb called Moose River. Daisy is a gutsy gal. She home schools three kids, and...
