True crime (sort of). A woman is dead after a minor accident, and her husband sues Ford for faulty air bag. But as the court discovery proceeds, the lawyer finds that she may have been strangled prior to the accident, and the crash staged as a cover up. Based on a true story. Kind of dry and a lot of jargon, but interesting.
The director of a movie filming in Lake Eden is killed... or was the male actor the target? Hannah is trying to decide between Mike and Norman while trying to find the killer. Or is newcomer Ross the right one?
Nice cozy in the TenHuis Chocolade series. Lee is getting annoying e-mails from a business contact, but when local computers come down with a virus and 2 bodies turn up, she thinks there's more to the e-mails than she thought.
I was enjoying this book about a person who gives up a high-strung career to follow her heart and become a baker until I came to a part where she calls Jane Austen "Victorian." Jeez, where is her editor? The recipes look nice and will try a few. It was a pleasant read otherwise.
Hayden is off to Portland for a college friend's engagement party. Almost as soon as she arrives, the fiancee is found dead. Hayden has still not recovered from her first encounter with murder, but she has a feeling that this was not an accident. Her friend was part of a food pod community focused on Chocolate. As Hayden gets to know the members of the pod, she becomes more and more certain that Declan was murdered.
This mystery kept me guessing who the culprit was. The small community kept the suspect list short, though. I learned a lot about fancy chocolate methods, which made it fun. I'm still not sure I understand Hayden's lifestyle, but this is only the second book, so hopefully things will become clearer. I will continue reading this series.
Victorian era cozy with an American woman as the heroine. Kate gets hired by her long-lost aunt in England to come be her secretary. Her aunt is involved in an occult group. When a man appears dead at a local excavation, Kate feels she must investigate. First in the series.
