Review of Cookies, Corpses & the Deadly Haunt
Review (4 Stars): Cookies, Corpses and the Deadly Haunt was a delightful mystery with entertaining characters and a storyline to die for. This is the first book in the Haunted House Flippers series and I’m already an instant fan. I loved this well-written whodunnit that was set in a haunted mansion and Juniper is a great heroine for this series. Can’t wait to see what happens in the next installment of the series and I hope that I don’t have to wait too long to get my hands on it.
Great review! I’m thrilled you liked it. I hope you won’t have to wait long either but in the meantime you could check out the crossover series, Penning Trouble. The second book in the series releases next month.
