2- A Giant Murder AUDIOWould you like a shot of… death with that, sir?

Josephine Jacobs was just doing her job, serving at an exclusive party, so why is she now being accused of shooting TG Taggert?

At a party full of suspects in the murder of Taggert, Josie served the food giant everything but an eternally “parting shot.” Who really killed TG Taggert? His wife? His son, Jack? What about Harper Davis? Rumor has it, she was having an affair with him—motive for her or Taggert’s wife! The list of those who seemed to hate him keeps growing, including a chemist and a chef!

With her long-time friend, Office Porter O’Brien, Josie sets out to clear her name and find out who really killed “the giant”.

Find out in this next book in the Ever After Mysteries, combining beloved fairy tales and mysteries. A Giant Murder offers a retelling of “Jack and the Beanstalk” with enough clues and suspects to keep you looking over your shoulder. We’d recommend Kevlar… but it hasn’t been invented yet!

 My Review: I requested to read (listen to) this book through Celebrate Lit. I was honored to be chosen to do so and this is my honest review.

My husband and I listened to this while on a road trip. It was very entertaining and kept us alert on the drive. The story is interesting and kept my interest throughout. I enjoyed the main characters, Josie and Porter. They seemed so real. I kept guessing who was guilty and I did not guess correctly. That is kind of rare for me. 

I also enjoyed that this is a clean, Christian story without being preachy. It shows how people lean on God during trying times. I also enjoyed listening to the narrator. She did a very good job of giving each character his own sound/voice.

I would recommend this book.

The Sweet Life by Suzanne Woods Fisher

 I was pleased to be chosen through Revell Reads to read and review this book. I've always enjoyed books by Suzanne Woods Fisher. This book was no exception. This review is freely given and my own thoughts.

The characters in the book were very well developed. Their personalities really shown through. The book had almost no editing errors, even though this was an ARC. It is a Christian book but not preachy in the least. It hits on a couple main topics for faith. This is a modern day novel with a bit of romance but not a true romance novel.

The only thing I really disliked about the book was that it ended too soon. It left a lot of open ends that the reader is supposed to fill in and decide. It wasn't a total cliffhanger, it's just that I would have preferred a more complete ending.

I give this book a 4 out of a 5-star review. I would recommend this book to my friends.
