Load Up (Lark Davis Mysteries)
by Annabelle Hunter
Load Up has the best murder victim ever! Who hasn’t wanted to kill their HOA President? And Gerald is worse than most. The only person he recently argued with is single mother Lark Davis over the spacing of her fairy garden from her house. Lark is just beginning a relationship with hunky Detective Bracken Wilson when both the murder investigation and their relationship start moving at light speed.
Load Up is a humorous cozy mystery with a lot of romance, gossip, and motives floating around the neighborhood. And what a neighborhood it is! The local coffee shop is owned by a successful drag queen who is totally beloved by Lark’s seven-year-old daughter, Hailey. There is a town blog that seems to know what has occurred before even the people involved have processed the events. The romance between ditzy Lark and the Detective is slow-moving and sweet. The swearing is kept to a minimum with Snickerdoodles and Fudge substituting in for the real words. This book would be great for young teens and up. Overall, Load Up is a great fun-filled way to spend a lazy afternoon and is highly recommended. 4 stars!

Too many suspects can be as bad as no suspects at all…
Lark Davis, horse trainer and reluctant amateur sleuth, is sure that her crime-solving days are behind her. At least that’s what she told her grandmother. However, when her Homeowners Association President and owner of the local hardware store is found dead the day after she had a public fight with him, Lark is back in the last place she wants to be — the middle of a murder case.
But this is Barrow Bay, and things are never as they seem. Gerald Pratchett had a list of enemies a mile long, and each one had a very real reason for wanting to see him gone. When the police get overwhelmed with too many suspects, including herself, Lark realizes that it is up to her to bring his killer to justice.
Nothing can stop Lark from finding out the truth — and getting her man.
