Book Review: Mr. Crotchety by Rich Amooi

Mr. CrotchetyMr. Crotchety by Rich Amooi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book has the best bunch of characters that I have ever met.
Roger Hudson is considered Mr.Crotchety in the community and does what he can to promote that name. He has reasons to close himself off.

Sally always had a smile and a welcoming personality that set Roger’s nerves on edge. They ate at the same restaurant during lunch and he avoided her and her happiness with all he had. She has reasons to be so cheery. He just didn’t know them.

When he is basically forced to move for his own well being, he has the opportunity to work with Sally. This has every possibility to go wrong. It is hilarious when they hold their first open house.

His nephew Jeffrey who helps him at the store he owns is a fun young man with great insight. Portia is Sally’s best friend and co-worker and she helps to steer Sally in the right direction.

This book made me laugh out loud so many times. There are some of the funniest scenes I have ever read in this book. This is my first Rich Amooi book but it will not be my last. I really enjoyed it from start to finish. The entire story was fabulous. I had to give it 5 stars. It deserved every one of them.

Book Review: The Marquess of Cake by Heather Hiestand

The Marquess of CakesThe Marquess of Cakes by Heather Hiestand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is such a wonderful mix of romance, the family and one very talented cake baker. I started it and planned on reading until bedtime and stayed up almost all night finishing it. It is that good. The entire quasi courtship of Michael and Alys was an excellent adventure. I loved how they came together during unexpected occasions.
Their friendship led me to believe that they could grow to have more. But there was drama in their lives that caused trouble for the couple. The family was not accustomed to so many things that were happening to them and it made things pretty hard on Alys. Michael’s mother did not really approve and that was just one little problem.

This was a great read. I want to read the rest of the series if it means keeping up with Alys and Michael.
Heather Hiestand is a new writer for me, but I plan on reading more from her.

Book Review: Death at the Cafe by Alison Golden

Death at the Café (A Reverend Annabelle Dixon Cozy Mystery Book 1)Death at the Café by Alison Golden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This prequel was a great way to get to know the Reverend Annabelle Dixon. She is just a wonderful character. She is a warm and Godly woman that has a very fun way about her. She is very bright and a joy to read about since she is rather quirky. Sister Mary is also a fun character. She is called the accidental nun by her friends. Sister Mary is caught in a terrible situation and so is not quite at her best. She keeps ending up at the wrong end of a police investigation. I was glad to be able to read this even after reading Murder at the Mansion.

Annabelle Dixon is able to see through all the confusing clues and find the things that are only obvious to her to draw the correct conclusion.
Another great read by Alison Golden.
