The Butler Did It

This is a very witty, over the top book. If you like Cary Grant screw ball comedies, you will love this book. The gist of the story is that a long term faithful retainer, Thornly, takes over his employer’s empty London mansion and turns it into a guest house for the season. Unbeknownst to the Marquis of Westham, his butler is tending to paying guests while he has been away. Among the paying guests is Miss Emma Clifford and her eccentric family. She is beautiful, and her grandmother, also being a former beauty, has a secret agenda. Her mother is an airhead, three slices short of a loaf. Her naive brother would have been safer left at school.

Next in residence we have Edgar, who is a con man, passing himself off as the aristocracy. Last but not least, is Mrs Olive Norbert, a 52 year old seamstress who has never married. She is corpulent, avarice, and bad to know. Into this setting arrives the tall, dark handsome hero of our story, the Marquis of Westham, totally unprepared. I would give this story a heat level of 1/2 out of 3 and 4.5 pearls out of 5. I highly recommend. Thank you. Carolintallahassee.

Publication Date: March 1, 2018

Julienne is snow bound in the middle of the Rocky Mountains with a killer striking at will.

Julienne LaMere gets to attend a Resort Management conference at a prestigious ski resort in the Colorado Mountains. What should be an enjoyable getaway attending workshops by day and shopping and enjoying the resort by night comes to a screeching halt when a loud-mouthed guest is murdered plus the roads and town shut down for an epic blizzard.
In addition to attending the conference, dodging a smitten teen boy, and seeking clues among the gossiping – and increasingly tense – guests, her best friend’s heart has warmed to an unlikely man and may get broken. As if her mind isn’t already fully occupied, Julienne and her new boyfriend Mason are skiing down troubled slopes in their relationship. Will Julienne put the scant clues together and unveil the culprit before a murderer gets away?

I loved the premise of this book! Loved the two best friends, Julieanne, and Porsche, the mystery is good! There are some proof reading errors, not the Authors fault. However, the biggest problem I have is, no romance! The Detective develops something with Porsche, no kisses, no nothing!? Julieanne, intelligent, beauty, has no boyfriend? Hopefully, in the next book the Romance may be heating up, and in that case, I will be looking forward to this new series!
I recommend! Thank you! Enjoy

Here’s what I thought of Iced by Avery Daniels:

This is a great book from a new Author! I love Julieanne, the Heroine, her friends, her family, you want to be with these people. She has just broken up with her long time part of the family boyfriend! Within several days he is kissing someone else in public! However, she has a new neighbor, a cross between Adian Quinn, and some other tall ,dark , hunk.
He is Mason, a mixture of James Bond, and Jason Bourne, his father is a General, he was in Special Forces, he plays in high stake poker games, he can play the guitar, and he dates beautiful women from Hollywood! His other job is that of bodyguard! Think Keven Costner in the Bodyguard! Only this time he is there when she arrives home!
The mystery is yewww! A Pastor of a Mega Church is murdered right after he grabs Julianne’s backside, he threatens to have her fired, from her dream job. Now, she is the number one suspect in the murder of the very wicked Pastor!
I highly recommend! Thank you! Enjoy!
