Not What She Seems by Victorine Lieske

I only paid 99 cents for this book. I am giving it 2 1/2 stars. It is an interesting who done it, with many suspects, but I felt like the book was missing something. It was supposed to be a suspenseful, romance mystery. There was not a lot of suspense, no romance, but it did have a good bit of mystery. I did not figure out who done it until the end.

Sealed With A Kill by Lucy Lawrence

This is a delightful cozy mystery set in New England in the Autumn.
Brenna works with her good friend Tenley Morse in a small decoupage store that
the very rich Tenley owns, named Vintage papers.
One day Brenna is taking a group of tourists on a guided tour of the lake, and stumbles onto the dead body of Harvey Lester.
Rupert More's business partner. Rupert is arrested for the murder.
Rupert is Tenley's father, she and Brenna search for the real killer, to prove the Tenley's father is innocent.
This is a nice relaxed paced Cozy Mystery. I enjoyed it.
