Playing for the Save by Rachelle Ayala
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is the fourth book in the series. I have not read every book in the series yet. I had no problem with reading this out of order. My experience with the series is that though the books are connected each can be read as a stand alone.

Review: A Ghostly Murder

A Ghostly Murder by Tonya Kappes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Things are heating up in Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky. Is there a serial killer on the loose? Is someone out to get Granny? With the election over you wouldn't think so. But strange things are happening and it is looking like Granny is involved. And what is going on with Emma Lee and Jack Henry? Will their romance survive? Tonya Kappes has written another winner in the Ghostly Southern Mystery series. This series is so entertaining to read you don't notice the time flying by! You don't have to read them in order but it is more fun if you do. They are fast reads and, if you haven't read any of them, I recommend a weekend of binge reading.
