This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Love is in the Salt Sea Air--and So is Murder!

Ellery Page, aspiring screenwriter, reigning Scrabble champion, and occasionally clueless owner of the Crow’s Nest mystery bookshop, is both flattered and bemused when he’s invited to the annual Marauder’s Masquerade, the biggest social event of the season in the quaint seaside village of Pirate’s Cove, Rhode Island.

Ellery doesn’t even know Mrs. Bloodworth-Ainsley—nor, it turns out does Mrs. Bloodworth-Ainsley know Ellery. But Marguerite’s son, Julian, wants to know him. Julian, handsome, rich, and engaging, is a huge mystery buff, but he’s never quite worked up the nerve to ask Ellery out.

As his relationship with Police Chief Jack Carson seems to be dead in the water, Ellery is grateful for a little flattering male attention from the village’s most eligible bachelor. But any hopes of romance hit the shoals when Julian is accused of murdering his mother’s unlikable second husband during the spooky annual ghost hunt in the old cemetery.

I actually never read a cozy mystery before this series, but so far I am digging it. This author is one of my favorites, and I've read almost everything she's wrote, so it's automatic for me to want to read this series, too. AND, I already have this on my Kindle waiting for me to read (because I'm special!!)

Waiting On Wednesday (483) Fools (Licking Thicket #3) by Lucy Lennox and May Archer

Expected publication: February 28th 2021
Genre: M/M, Romance

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Tucker Wright’s Clues for Life:

What’s a 4-letter word for an utterly oblivious, totally commitment-phobic, heartbreakingly gorgeous man with a pet pig named Bernadette?

That’d be D-U-N-N, as in Dunn Johnson, my very best pal and fishing buddy since I moved to Licking Thicket.

What’s a 6-letter word for a nerdy, crossword-loving town doctor who’s doomed to be hopelessly, thoroughly, irrevocably, in love with that straight best friend for the rest of his born days?

That’s T-U-C-K-E-R, as in me.

But when I agree to let Dunn be my 24/7 dating coach, and he decides to get our whole nosy town in on the act, there’s only one 5-letter word to describe the pair of us.

F-O-O-L-S.

This series is a little wacky - or maybe it's just the town of Licking Thicket that's wacky. Either way, I'm enjoying this series, even if I can't take it too seriously.

Waiting On Wednesday (482) The Gentle Art of Fortune Hunting by K.J. Charles

Expected publication: February 24th 2021 by KJC Books 
Genre: M/M, Romance, Historical

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Robin Loxleigh and his sister Marianne are the hit of the Season, so attractive and delightful that nobody looks behind their pretty faces.

Until Robin sets his sights on Sir John Hartlebury’s heiress niece. The notoriously graceless baronet isn’t impressed by good looks, or fooled by false charm. He’s sure Robin is a liar—a fortune hunter, a card sharp, and a heartless, greedy fraud—and he’ll protect his niece, whatever it takes.

Then, just when Hart thinks he has Robin at his mercy, things take a sharp left turn. And as the grumpy baronet and the glib fortune hunter start to understand each other, they also find themselves starting to care—more than either of them thought possible.

But Robin's cheated and lied and let people down for money. Can a professional rogue earn an honest happy ever after?

This is one of those authors you see all the hype about, but never read for yourself. So I finally picked up the first book in a new series and loved it! Then I read the 2nd book and loved it even more! Then the author got distracted and wrote this particular book instead of book #3. So I'll read this one while (not so) patiently waiting for that 3rd book.

Waiting On Wednesday (481) The Murder Between Us by Tal Bauer

Expected publication: January 28, 2021 
Genre: M/M, Suspense, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings

(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

It was just one night.
It was just one mistake.


FBI Agent Noah Downing had questions about his sexuality that a single night in Vegas should have answered. But dawn finds him on a plane back to Iowa, back on the trail of a vicious serial killer who disappeared six years ago and has suddenly resurfaced. There's nothing like a murder investigation to escape an existential crisis.

FBI profiler Cole Kennedy is still reeling after finding a heart-stopping connection with a seemingly perfect man, only for him to vanish. When he's sent to Iowa to profile the killer terrorizing America's heartland, he finds more questions than answers - both about the murderer and about Noah, the last man he ever expected to see again.

A twisted secret stretches between Cole and Noah, tangled with questions they both have about each other. But now, thrown together, they'll have to unravel the killer's profile and follow his trail... back to the very beginning, to where everyone's questions are answered once and for all.

I've been wanting to read this author's books, but for some reason I haven't made it a priority. I've been reading a ton of shmoopy romances lately, so I'm more than ready have some suspense along with my love story. This sounds like a perfect read for my current mood!
