Book Blurb:When the daughter of the US Ambassador to Argentina is kidnapped in broad daylight on Christmas Eve, the FBI sends one of its best negotiators to investigate. Supervisory Special Agent Max Hawthorne arrives at an embassy thrown into chaos as US and local law enforcement hustle to track the young woman. Is this a simple kidnap for ransom, or part of a political agenda? Could it be something more sinister? Lucy Aston has something to hide. Preferring to stay in the shadows, the lowly, fashion-challenged office assistant resents being assigned to help Max. But Max can’t resist a puzzle…he’s starting to suspect Lucy Aston is not what she seems. When rumors emerge of a suspected Russian spy operating out of the embassy, Lucy’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble. As she and Max race to rescue the ambassador’s daughter, Lucy has to do whatever it takes to keep her cover from being blown—even if that means betraying the man she’s falling for.

Her greatest achievements are mastering the Tokyo subway, climbing Ben Lomond, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, and surviving fifteen Winnipeg winters (fingers crossed). She loves to travel for research purposes and was lucky enough to visit the Strategic Information and Operations Center inside FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. in 2016. She also got to shove another (police) car off the road during pursuit training at the Writer’s Police Academy. Basically she has way too much fun!

If I Disappear by Eliza Jane Brazier
Genre: Thriller, Mystery
When her favorite true crime podcast host goes missing, an adrift young woman plunges headfirst into the wild backcountry of Northern California and her own dangerous obsession.
Sera loves true crime podcasts. They make her feel empowered in a world where women just like her disappear daily. She's sure they are preparing her for something. So when Rachel, her favorite podcast host, goes missing, Sera knows it's time to act. Rachel has always taught her to trust her instincts.
Sera follows the clues hidden in the episodes to an isolated ranch outside Rachel's small hometown to begin her search. She's convinced her investigation will make Rachel so proud. But the more Sera digs into this unfamiliar world, the more off things start to feel. Because Rachel is not the first woman to vanish from the ranch, and she won't be the last...
Rachel did try to warn her.
I am not a podcast listener, but I love a good thriller, mystery book. If I Disappear had me wondering what had happen to Rachel, were her parents as odd as they seemed, would Sera find out the truth. I had so many questions as I continued reading. I loved that Sera did not let anything detour her from finding the answers she was looking for and that she did not take everything and everyone around her at face value. She questioned everyone and everything she encountered.
I was not pulled into this story as deeply as I would like, I was able to put the book down and not really think about it until I picked it up again. But when I picked it up the rest of my world went away, and I could not be distracted by the life going on around me. I like the unique format of adding the podcast notes within the story. Over all, I really enjoyed If I Disappear and look forward to more of Eliza Jane Brazier’s books.

Charleston Green by Stephanie Alexander
Paperback, 353 pages
Published April 14th 2020 by Bublish, Inc.
Genre: Mystery, Womens Fiction
If Tipsy Collins learned one thing from her divorce, it's that everyone in Charleston is a little crazy--even if they're already dead.
Tipsy, a gifted artist, cannot ignore her nutty friends or her vindictive ex-husband, but as a lifelong reluctant clairvoyant, she's always avoided dead people. When Tipsy and her three children move into the house on Bennett Street, she realizes some ghosts won't be ignored.
Till death do us part didn't pan out for Jane and Henry Mott, who've haunted the house for nearly a century. Tipsy's marriage was downright felicitous when compared to Jane and Henry's ill-fated union. Jane believes Henry killed her and then himself, and Henry vehemently denies both accusations. Unfortunately, neither phantom remembers that afternoon in 1923. Tipsy doesn't know whether to side with Jane, who seems to be hiding something under her southern belle charm, or Henry, a mercurial creative genius. Jane and Henry draw Tipsy into their conundrum, and she uncovers secrets long concealed under layers of good manners, broken promises and soupy Lowcountry air. Living with ghosts, however, takes a toll on her health, and possibly even her sanity. As she struggles to forge a new path for herself and her children, Tipsy has a chance to set Jane and Henry free, and release the ghosts of her own past.
My Thoughts… Charleston Green is a fun book. Tispy is a character that I found intriguing. She lives a life full of chaos and is doing her best to keep it together. She moves into a haunted house, is divorcing her husband, and raising her three children. I love how she interacts with ghosts and the affects that they have on her. She takes everything in stride, doing her best to continue living a happy life.
I was in need of a book that would make me smile, make me laugh, and make me need to keep reading. Charleston Green is just that book. I picked up this book not quite sure what I was getting into and quickly realized that I loved what I was reading. Tipsy was unique and real. Jane and Henry Mott, the ghosts, kept me wondering what had really happen to them. Tipsy’s need to help them move on showed that she was willing to put her own health on the line to help others.
Stephanie Alexander wrote a book for those looking for a fun, quirky mystery to solve. The characters are fun, the story flows easily and quickly, and the mystery is unique. I recommend picking up your own copy.
