Anna Celeste Burke's characters in Heinous Habits show up for the third go 'round in Corsario Cove as the husband and wife tangle yet again with " the powers that be", hoping to resolve the loose ends that haven't completely been all tied up. I'm getting used to these two young people and their amusing way of handling situations as they are forced to be adults in these mysterious situations. This is followed by a trip to England and Reverend Annabelle, the star of now four books by Alison Golden. Now I know what all the buzz is about with the vicar and how she kind of stumbles into predicaments that would challenge anyone, let alone a newbie priest ( I was once "newly ordained" and get the insiders stuff LOL). I was wonderfully surprised by the new read from Kathi Daley; how any of these writers continue to entertain us floors me. I have a number of Dianne Harman's books and this one whet my appetite for bingeing on a few murders...just loved her characters! As for Shannon VanBergen, I haven't laughed through a Cosy in a long time. And then, a whole new character series set in Western Mass...which I am quite familiar with this area. This story was a wonderful conclusion to this box set.
Oh....don't forget the recipes. Highly recommended 5 stars

Brien and Kim are returning to Corsario Cove with the prospect of a new job. Upon their arrival, they learn of the recent vandalism at the Sanctuary Resort & Spa, as well as in Sanctuary Grove, where the surfers stay. The Conservancy Group wants to rid the area of the surfers completely. There is also a "mad monk" running around disturbing the resort guests. The GPS Brien and Kim received from Brother Thadeus with possible ties to hidden treasure adds to the mystery.
What starts as vandalism, soon leads to kidnapping and murder. Can Kim and Brien, with the help of Detective Mitchum, solve the mystery and save Sanctuary Grove?
The book starts a little slowly, but can easily stand on its own without having to read previous books in the series.
First Case - Writers Retreat Southern Seashore Mystery #1
by Kathi Daley
Jillian Hanford is a reporter from New York who has moved to Gull Island to run her brother's resort after he suffers a stroke. Her plan is to convert the resort into a writer's retreat with long-term residents.
Following the news of the death of Katrina Pomeroy, a survivor of the Friday the Thirteenth Massacre on a nearby island 11 years earlier, Jill is contacted by a former editor asking her to write a human-interest story on the matter. With assistance from her writers group, the local newspaper editor, Jack Jones, and Rick Savage, the local Deputy Sheriff, Jill starts her own investigation into Katrina's death, as well as the cold case from the past.
Was Katrina murdered or did she commit suicide? Is her death related to the earlier murders? If so, what is the connection? Can Jillian and the others put the pieces together to solve both mysteries?
This book is a quick read and good start to a new series. There are quite a few people introduced at the start of the book, but Jillian Hanford, Jackson "Jack" Jones, and Deputy Rick Savage seem to be the primary characters.
Death at the Cafe - Reverend Annabelle Dixon Mystery #1
by Alison Golden
When Reverend Annabelle Dixon was first assigned to St. Clement's Church in London, Father John, her mentor, had his doubts about her ability to survive the tough environment. Fortunately, her determination and upbeat personality set his mind at ease as she proves herself up to the task.
One thing that the Reverend has a problem with is the London Public Transit system. Her nerves are somewhat frayed when she has to use the system to go meet a childhood friend, Sister Mary, a Catholic Nun visiting from West Africa. Upon her arrival at the meeting place, she notices a crowd gathered near a dead woman lying next to an outside table. Annabelle sees Sister Mary among the crowd with a shocked expression on her face. The woman had died practically at her feet. It seems Mary has a history of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Mary finally remembers a note passed to her by the dead woman, so together with Annabelle, they go to see the lady mentioned in the note. When the second lady also dies in the presence of Mary and Annabelle, Detective Inspector Cutcliffe immediately suspects the two women of both murders and feels he has enough evidence to hold them.
Can Annabelle keep herself and Mary out of jail and discover the real culprit? Can she convince DI Cutcliffe of their innocence?
Good characters and great interactions - Plenty of twists, turns, and humor to keep you engaged.
Murdered in Argentina - Jack Trout Mystery #1
by Dianne Harman
Jack and Carola Trout have taken a group of executives from Moving Graphics to Argentina for a few days of fly fishing. The trip was arranged by the company owner, Ray Martin.
When Ray is murdered the first night at the lodge, the police are called in. Unfortunately, the police chief does not like Americans and has no interest in solving the case. With Jack's reputation in jeopardy, it is up to Carola and Lisa, Ray's widow, to figure out who killed Ray.
The story is well-written, with Carola seeming to be more of the sleuth than Jack, although they do make a good team. The story has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing.
Up In Smoke - Glock Grannies Cozy Mystery #1
by Shannon VanBergen
NIkki Parker has just moved in with her grandmother, Geraldine Dean. On the day of her arrival, Nikki learns that there had been a fire at Grandma Dean's Antique Store. It turns out the fire was intentional.
Who set the fire and why? Can Nikki and Grandma Dean solve the mystery?
Everybody seems to like Grandma Dean, but I found her to be very abrupt with her "daughter's daughter" (she won't even call Nikki her Granddaughter). Overall, a good mystery with a surprising ending.
Peril in Paxton Park - Paxton Park Cozy Mystery #1
by J.A. Whiting
After recovering from a severe automobile accident, Shelly Taylor has re-located to Paxton Park and is working part-time as a baker for the Paxton Park Diner. Shelly often has nightmares. While taking a nap on her front porch one day, she dreams about finding the body of a woman in a lake.
While talking with her neighbor, Juliet Landers, she learns about the previous murder of Meg Stores. When Shelly and Juliet are walking in the area of the Crooked Tree Forest, they discover the body of a woman in the underbrush. This is the second young woman to be murdered within 2 months.
Being a tourist town, the possibilities as to who killed these two women are almost endless, but is there a connection between the two deaths? If so, what is the connection?
This is a quick read with fairly short chapters that makes it hard to put down. The characters are believable and the interactions very realistic. As in real life, there are some conflicting stories by various people being questioned, which only adds to the mystery.
Overall, this was a great box set and the stories were very enjoyable.
