A Colourful Death ~ A Cornish Mystery

Carola Dunn
Review
Second in the series of "A Cornish Mystery" - I really enjoy Carola Dunn's cozy mystery series. She has a way of showing strong, female characters, in a very likable way.

This Is Where You Belong: The Art and Science of Loving the Place You Live
Author
Melody Warnick
Review
This is a nonfiction book about a woman who decides to do anything she can to fall in love with a town in Virginia she moves to for her husband's new job. She has moved many times before and has always hoped to reinvent her life upon arriving to a new home, but with no success. The author documents different techniques she tried to become part of her new community. She interviews a lot of people and gives a lot of statistics to back up her approach. This book encourages people to make the most of the town or city they live in. It's interesting and worth reading, but not life changing.

Sacred Heart
Author

Review
Captures the weirdness and depravity of high schoolers in a gritty style. Con: no exact plot which is why the ending seemed tacked on. Some of the characters and dialogue were genius, others just cluttered up the place and seemed flat.

Manna From Hades ~ A Cornish Mystery
Author
Carola Dunn
Review
Nice series of mysteries with interesting characters, set in 1960's Cornwall, England.
I'm a fan of Carola Dunn's "Daisy Dalrymple" mysteries, so I thought I would give this series a try. I wasn't disappointed.
