This book is the first in the series and also the first I have read by this author. 

I have to say the author is a great writer. The book had good flow to it and was a very interesting cozy mystery featuring animals. 

Ashley Crane is a cook at a popular restaurant when her not so nice boss is murdered. Darren has made more enemies than friends so there is a list a mile long of suspects. 

When Ashley begins to get threatening phone calls warning her not to talk about what she has heard in the restaurant between employees, she begins to wonder just what everyone around her is caught up in. 

Ashley decides to help out the hunky detective to solve this murder. 

This book has many twists until the very end when you finally find out who there murderer is. It combines: mystery, humor, cute pets, and possibly a love interest. 

Looking forward to reading more of what this author writes.

Where do I begin. This is the final book in the Seasons of the Heart Series. I have loved every book in the series and to read this one was bittersweet. 

Miriam and Ben have taken in a young couple who showed up on their doorstep during a snowstorm. Miriam has a heart of gold and is willing to do anything at all to help them.


Lena and Josiah are not sure where to turn because Lena is pregnant. They are not married and this goes against the Amish ways. When they stumble upon the home of Miriam and Ben they must learn that there is a reason for everything, even if they can't see it at first. 


Hiram is up to no good once again threatening people and showing up to weddings uninvited to have all of the attention on him. He is bound and determined to force Josiah to come to work for him in Higher Ground, by any means necessary. 


Throughout this book there are ups and downs and God truly shows Himself when He is needed the most. When tragedy strikes will faith be enough to carry the people of Willow Ridge through and rebuild what they have lost?


If you haven't read the Season of the Heart Series I recommend them to everyone. As well as all of Charlotte Hubbard's books. They are wonderful and all of them show the power of God and of the community that will stand by you.

This is the second book in the Amish Dynasty series. I think I just may like this book more than the first. 

Jake and Ellie are truly a perfect match but even though the do want to be together, they haven't told each other their feelings. 

Will they be able to over come their differences and have a life together?

Or will they move on and court other people?

Looking forward to the next book in the series. This is a talented author and I think her next books will continue to be wonderful.  


This is another awesome book in the Avery Shaw series. Once again Avery is going after Tad for his new project that she calls TOOL. The name itself practically sends Tad over the edge. Then in the midst of this there is another murder that Avery finds herself wanting to solve. 

With the help of her love, Elliot, and her cousin Lexie she begins to piece together what happened to the murdered woman.

Uncovering all kinds of twists and turns until the very end when the true killer is finally identified. 

Another great read and a win by Amanda M Lee. 

Looking forward to the next in the series and hoping that it will possibly have a proposal from Elliot to Avery.
