129. Grave Surprise by Charlaine Harris

genre: cozy mystery

Rating: B

"A college class gets more than it bargained for when Harper gives a demonstration of her uncanny talent. Instead of just finding one body in an old grave, she finds two: the original occupant and a recently deceased girl whom Harper had tried, and failed, to find two years previously. To dispel suspicions about her own innocence, Harper and her stepbrother Tolliver undertake their own hunt to find the killer-only to find yet another body in the same grave."

The reason why I only gave it a B wasn't because it was bad. Honestly it was better then the first book.  It felt like Harris had gotten on track with who the characters were and where she was going to take them. Only thing was it didn't really feel like a mystery except for the discovery of the dead body. In trying not to implicate themselves, Harper and Tolliver pretty much just get mixes up in situation after situation without really trying to ferret out the murderer. The characters were starting to develope and a lot of angst and rehashing is put into the book. The thing about Harris is that there's always a depressing tone to her books so it takes a little getting use to. I did like this book though. Reading an Ice Cold Grave next.

130. The Kitchen Witch by Annette Blair

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Rating: B

Series: Accidental Witch Book 1

"When a single-dad TV executive hires Melody Seabright--a flaky rich girl and rumored witch--as his babysitter, she magically lands her own cooking show...and makes sparks fly."

This is actually my second book from the author, but this is one of her earlier books and is the first book in the Accidental Witch Series. As her other book had more magic and with the title I assumed that this one would contain the same elements, but the witch in the title pretty much worked like a gimmick as in the tv show. I liked Melody and all the other supporting characters especially Shane but the reasons for Logan not pursuing a relationship with Melody and both realizing they should be together was too short and rushed for me, a little late. It was a cute and funny read though. had potential. Would probably read the next book too.
