Bonnie & Clyde are at it again!

 

When the death of a local baker threatens to shred the fabric of their lovely town, this dynamic sleuthing duo bolts into action. The results will leave you in stitches.

It’s summertime in beautiful Bliss, Georgia, and while second chance dress shop owner, Bonnie Balfour, would prefer to spend her time redesigning gowns for the upcoming Founder’s Day parade, her grandma, Gigi, is too hot under the collar to concentrate. It seems Gigi’s former friend is using her recipe to sell cobbler at the local festivities, and she’s claiming Gigi’s treat as her own!

Things go from uncomfortable to downright ugly when Gigi confronts her friend publicly about the unseamly pattern of behavior, only to later find the woman dead! With Gigi’s prints on the murder weapon and dozens of material witnesses to their earlier scrap, Gigi cuts straight to the top of Sheriff Wright’s suspect list.

Now, Bonnie and her kitty companion, Clyde, must don their sleuthing hats once more.

To mend Gigi’s reputation and deliver justice for the victim, Bonnie must lace together a string of clues about what really happened that night. Will she wind up on the killer’s cutting board in the process?

Dollycas’s Thoughts

In this second installment of this fun new series from Julie Anne Lindsey the residents of Bliss, Georgia are getting ready for the Founder’s Day celebration. Bonnie Balfour, owner of the Bless Your Heart is recycling and redesigning ball gowns with the members of the Founder’s Day Court in mind. Each member of the court will be able to select a gown free of charge. She thinks it is a wonderful marketing campaign as each woman is selected for making a significant contribution to the community and is well known for their efforts. Bonnie’s own mom is on the court and she would be delighted to be crowned Lady Luck for the year.

But there may be a fly in the ointment that will mar the big event. Bonnie’s Grandma Gigi is about to cause a huge ruckus because she believes one of her friends is using her Peach Cobbler recipe and selling it in the Enchanted Gardens park. As soon as Gigi tastes the cobbler she knows she is correct and confronts her friend publically making such a scene she is kicked out of the park by the police.

Later that evening the woman is found dead by Gigi herself and her prints are all over the murder weapon. Bonnie and Clyde again have to team up to save the day by cobbling together every clue they can to prove Gigi’s innocence. New Sheriff, Mason HANS (Short for Handsome New Sheriff) Wright does his best to deter her but Bonnie can’t back down even when putting her own life in danger.


It is so easy to get invested in these characters’ lives. They are fresh, fun, and full of Southern charm. I continue to be in awe of Bonnie’s sewing capabilities and love the way she upcycled the ball gowns for the ladies. I absolutely love Clyde, he is one sneaky little devil. The relationship evolving between Bonnie and Mason is delightful. Their banter is fun and true to life. He really does want to keep her safe, but someone from his past could really twist things up. Gigi cracked me up several times but that encounter with Rowena in chapter two had the cobbler flying and me laughing out loud as I could picture every moment. All the characters are so well written. The core characters are developing nicely and those new in this book are captivating as well even if one of them is a murderer.

I really enjoyed the way the author plotted out this story. The pace was constant, something was always happening. She tossed in some really nice twists, red herrings, and comedic events to keep everyone on their toes.

The one thing I have learned now after reading the first two books of this series and the spinoff No Farm, No Fowl, is that I am unable to put the book down once I start reading it. I started this one a little later in the evening and was surprised at the hour when I flipped the last page. I hadn’t even noticed the rest of my family had gone to bed. I really escaped into this book.

Julie Anne Lindsey never disappoints. Seven Deadly Sequins was a great light-hearted read. I love that we are getting to know all the characters better including their backstories. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip to Bliss. I hope to visit again soon and see what mischief Bonnie and Clyde get tangled up in next.

No Farm No Fowl (Thelma & Louisa Mysteries) by Julie Anne Lindsey #Review @JulieALindsey

No Farm No Fowl (Thelma & Louisa Mysteries)
Cozy Mystery
1st in Series
Spin-Off from the Bonnie & Clyde Mystery Series
Setting – Georgia
Cozy Queen Publishing LLC (April 12, 2022)
Paperback ‏ : ‎ 198 pages

It’s out of the frying pan and into the fire for Thelma and Louisa in this new farm to fun cozy mystery series!

Polish chicken breeder Louisa Eggers and her beloved hen, Thelma, are enjoying life sunny side up in their earthy cottagecore community of Meadowbrook. Friends and neighbors can’t get enough of Louisa’s special breakfast recipes, and she has high hopes of feathering her nest with income from the budding egg enterprise.

But when a local naysayer, seemingly determined to bring bad press to Louisa’s community, lifestyle, and café is found dead with a belly full of her quiche, and the coroner crows murder, all eyes turn to Louisa for an explanation.

To save their business and reputation, Thelma and Louisa lay a plan to find the killer. Can they crack this case before it’s too late? Or will they find themselves in a heaping helping of trouble?

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Welcome to the cottagecore community of Meadowbrook where Louisa Eggers has made her home with her favorite Polish chicken Thelma. Her mother would rather have her living at home and helping with the family business but she is working hard to have her own success with Souffle the Day selling quiches and souffles.

Her business has been open just three months and she had high hopes that a local food critics review would drive even more customers to her little cafe but instead, he gave her place a scathing review. When he returned she was hoping to change his mind so she served him up a delicious quiche. After just a few bites he keels over dead and Louisa is scrambling to prove her innocence and save her business.

Louisa and Thelma may have to crack a few eggs to get to the truth but she is not going to chicken out until she catches the real killer.


We first met Louisa in Burden of Poof, the first book in the Bonnie & Clyde Mystery Series but this book can be read all on its own.

Louisa is a wonderful main character. She has settled in the communal community of Meadowbrook, a neighborhood in Cromwell, Georgia with her inherited goats and her flock of chickens. She is determined to make a life there for herself which is the total opposite of the socialite life she was brought up in. She truly is living her dream until one little review could bring it to a very early end. A little quirky, she puts Thelma in a cage and takes her everywhere with her and the chicken loves it.

We also meet her friend Mary, who is totally driven by one thing, selling/trading her eggs. If Louisa’s cafe fails, that affects Mary in a major way. The friendship between the two women is there is just not a warm and fuzzy one yet. I do like the way they banter.

Then there is Eli. There is a palpable romantic charge between him and Louisa but she really doesn’t know much about him and why he has settled down in their little community. He and Mary are all in to help Louisa sleuth out the killer. He also steps up to keep her safe.

Louisa’s mother is a true southern woman who loves her daughter so much she will do anything for her but she really wants Louisa to come home and take over her rightful role at Laurelwood which has become a living museum. Louisa is happy to help but her life at Meadowbrook is her number one priority.

All the characters Ms. Lindsey has created are delightful, human, and animal. From the core characters to the supporting cast, they feel genuine and their dialogues feel true to life.

The mystery she has wrapped these characters in is very well-plotted with several suspects. She dished up some egg-citing twists that pulled me deeper into the plot as I tried to solve it all before the big reveal. I failed as the true culprit flew completely under my radar. I do love it when I am surprised at the end.

The author also tangles some romance amidst the mystery. Eli and Louisa are taking it slow but there is a wedding at the end that had me smiling and giggling a bit too.

No Farm, No Fowl was an egg-cellent start for this series. Engaging characters and a great mystery had me entertained from the first page to the last. There was a cliffhanger at the end to lead readers into book two and I can’t wait for it to be released. I hope to spend a lot of time in Georgia with these characters.

Cozy Wednesday featuring Burden of Poof (Bonnie & Clyde Mysteries) by Julie Anne Lindsey #Review / #Giveaway – Great Escapes Book Tour

Burden of Poof (Bonnie & Clyde Mysteries)
by Julie Anne Lindsey

About Burden of Poof

Burden of Poof (Bonnie & Clyde Mysteries)
Cozy Mystery
1st in Series
Publisher ‏ : ‎ Cozy Queen Publishing LLC (September 15, 2021)
Paperback ‏ : ‎ 254 pages
ISBN-10 ‏ : ‎ 195487801X
ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 978-1954878013
Digital – ASIN ‏ : ‎ B08ZL91YMW

An amateur sleuth named Bonnie and her kitty companion Clyde, with names like those, what could possibly go wrong?

Life hasn’t sparkled too brightly for Bonnie Balfour over the past few years, but a heart-breaking divorce has brought her back to her small rural hometown of Bliss, Georgia, and things are starting to shape up.

The proud new owner of Bless Her Heart—a second chance dress shop and boutique on the town square—Bonnie thinks thirty-eight might not be too late for a fresh start in life after all.

Until a grouchy old widow turns up dead in a pile of donations meant for Bonnie’s shop, and the town’s new detective pins her to the top of his suspect list!

To save her shop, dream, and reputation, Bonnie must coordinate clues and stitch together the truth about her innocence, but the unreasonably handsome detective and prying eyes of the local gossip mill are fast fraying her nerves.

When a series of anonymous attacks begin to hem her in, Bonnie fears the real killer is fixing to make her his next victim. Can this amateur sleuth measure up?

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Still stinging from her pending divorce Bonnie Balfour has returned home to Bliss Georgia and has opened up Bless Her Heart, a second-hand dress shop and boutique. She is giving items a second chance while she works on giving herself the same with her kitty Clyde by her side. Viola Abbott-Harrington has given Bonnie’s shop a second thought and has dropped by with a big donation of old ball gowns, perfect for the girls attending the upcoming homecoming dance. She even asks Bonnie to stop by her home to pick up even more gowns and accessories. But when she arrives she finds Viola dead at the bottom of the stairs on top of the gowns she was there to pick up.

Detective Mason Wright arrives on the scene, takes a brief look around, and decides Bonnie is his number one suspect. She is not about to give the man one second of a chance to pin anything on her. She decides to stitch all the clues together and prove without a shadow of a doubt that she is innocent and who the real killer is before all her dreams go up in a poof of smoke.


I absolutely love Bonnie and Clyde, the stars of this new cozy mystery series from Julie Anne Lindsey. The author pulled me into this story filled with Southern charm and fabulous characters. Clyde stole my heart immediately and I was thrilled by Bonnie’s sewing talents and her creativity. She certainly doesn’t need a man in her life except for Clyde but it is hard to deny the sparks that fly between her and the good detective from the get-go. Their banter was so much fun to observe. The snarky one-liners were great and funny.  I also enjoyed meeting Bonnie’s best friend Cami, that woman has an iron in every fire in the town of Bliss and she is so good for Bonnie. Bonnie needs a push and a shove to get out of her store and enjoy life. We are also introduced to a few of the quirky residents of Bliss and the hint of magic that touches their lives. All of the characters were intriguing in their own way and played necessary roles in the overall story.

Ms. Lindsey has crafted an intelligent mystery with plenty of twists and suspects. Bonnie takes to sleuthing like a kitten to milk. She asks great questions that move the investigation forward although they add more comedic tension between her and Detective Wright. There were some really nice turns and I loved the reveal. I was kept guessing right up to the very end.

The setting of Bliss Georgia was brought to life by the author’s wonderful descriptions. As Bonnie was updating the exterior of her shop I felt like I was right there on the scene. The bookstore was especially interesting for me and I am very excited by the hope of visiting it again. Viola’s home and the square with its wide variety of shops were all places fully described to give readers a real feel for everything Bliss has to offer.  It is a great Southern town and I really was drawn to the genuine way people cared for each other.

After finishing most cozy mysteries you have to wait months or even a year for the next installment. That is not true in this case. The next book in the series Seven Deadly Sequins is being released October 15, Beating the Wrap will be released November 15, and Eyelet Witness will be out December 15. I am really excited about the continuation of this series and more adventures with Bonnie and Clyde.

Great Escapes Praise for Burden of Poof (Bonnie & Clyde Mysteries)
by Julie Anne Lindsey

Burden of Poof is a charming Southern cozy mystery with a comforting cat, refashioned frocks, a determined detective, a rapid rumor mill, a caring community, and busybody Bonnie.
~The Avid Reader

I adore this new setting that Lindsey has created. Through her writing, you’ll feel like you’re right in the center of Bliss.
~Christy’s Cozy Corners

From the downhome Southern charm of protagonist, Bonnie Balfour, to her adorable rescue cat, Clyde, to the witty and humorous dialog, Ms. Lindsey pens an entertaining tale.
~Cinnamon, Sugar, and a Little Bit of Murder

Everything about Burden of Proof was charming. The town of ‘Bliss’ is welcoming and charming. The townsfolk and other shop owners that are introduced make you feel at home and want to visit. Bonnie and her sweet shop were just charming.
~My Reading Journeys

I loved Burden of Poof. The characters, setting, and plot are engaging. The murder isn’t the only theme in the book, giving the book a lot of realism. The book is also full of excellent imagery, character development, and a great story.
~Saph’s Cozy Corner

This series has so much promise and having read other books by this fantastic author I am excited! . . . While I am far from being a fashionista, I have a fondness for vintage clothing, so this setting captured my imagination from the start. I am also a sucker for second chances and fresh starts.
~Laura Interests

An idyllic town, charming characters, the spark of romance, and a fun mystery make BURDEN OF POOF a great start to a new cozy mystery series.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

. . . a fabulous start to a new cozy mystery series from author Julie Anne Lindsey. . . The mystery is deftly written and kept me on my toes. If you are looking for a cozy with heart, I highly recommend Burden of Poof. You won’t be disappointed!
~Brooke Blogs

A page-turner of a mystery, and just when you think you have everything figured out, well, I was surprised by the unexpected.
I loved how the author wrapped this story up, perfect!
~Maureen’s Musings
