I’ve heard great things about Julie Klassen’s books, so when the opportunity came to read her latest release, I looked forward to giving it a try. The Bridge to Belle Island is a historical mystery set in 1819 England. It reminded me a lot of the cozy mysteries I love to read, but with a more contained romance, so I enjoyed it even more and will definitely be reading other Klassen books.

Reading Wednesday | Bad Housekeeping

Books Review, Cozy Mystery, Writing Spot

I enjoy discovering authors I have not yet read. Each writer has a different style, different tone, different sense of humor. My introduction to Maia Chance was Bad Housekeeping, first in her new series, Agnes and Effie Mysteries. It is an entertaining story of a great-aunt and her niece.
