30 Days of Thanks 2013 Day 18: Nearly Departed in Dead Wood by Ann Charles | Vampire Book Club | My Bookish Ways

Month of Thanks

Hi Y’all! It is November and I am bringing back the Month of Thanks. I had so much fun doing this last year that I thought I would recycle the program again this year.   Each day I will highlight one book from 2013 that really stuck with me and one blogger (and their awesomeness) that I am thankful for! These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone (or book) that I love.

Nearly Departed in Deadwood by Ann Charles

Read/Listened for Fun (Kindle/Audible)
Overall Rating: 4.50
Story Rating: 4.75
Character Rating: 4.25

Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: Nearly Departed in Deadwood is a seriously fun cozy mystery that had me giggling, gasping, and growling (in a good way)!

What I Loved: They mystery is strong in Nearly Departed in Deadwood, grasshoppers! Ann Charles knows how to write a twisty mystery that will keep you guessing. In true Jessica Fletcher style (which is the bar I hold all cozy mysteries too) knocks out suspects as she goes. I love when an author lines up your suspects and then slowly knocks them down!

  1. I want to read this book 🙂 But I am not interested in horror books or blogs about them … skipping those posts as fast as I see them.

  2. Every time I read one your reviews of a non-romance book I feel the need to go outside my box. I can imagine how a mystery book can be a really enjoyable listening experience… Again, I need to look pass the romance genre.
    I love the Alpha contest they hold over at the Vampire Book Club. I love following them too 🙂

  3. How ironic is this? I’ve been MIA for a long time and when I read your post, I’m mentioned…so nice. But yes, it’s hard to find other bloggers who love horror like I do. I always listen to My Bookish Ways…she is awesome and writes fabulous reviews. I will have to pay more attention to Vampire Book Club. The book you mentioned sounds cute. Glad you got to listen to something for fun.
