      I am seriously having just too much fun reading this series by the author - I LOVED IT! Wonderfully written as always with a smooth flowing, fast paced plot that kept me fully engaged until the final reveal of the murderer. This time we see Verity more than a little hesitant about investigating the death of a member of the town's bookclub but her BFF twists her arm and guilts her into helping prove her mother innocent by finding the real killer. But is it even a murder? The hunky policeman Jeff [...]

      Once again: I LOVED IT! Just as much as the first book or even more. A lot of great characters of which most are old familiars that still manage to become suspects making it very difficult to spot the killer. Our friends are doing some great investigating and the twist and turns make this a super fun page turner that kept me hooked and also providing a couple chuckles which I always appreciate.Verity is still hoping to find out what happened to Aunt Adeline but the background story wasn't too pr [...]

      Verity is still trying to find out what happened to her Aunt Adeline, she also can't seem to stay out of trouble. She has Emy and Lorne alongside her as the three of them get into plenty of trouble trying to solve a murder. Humor, mystery, twists and turns will keep you turning the page. I really enjoyed the story.I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

      A suicide or a murder? Surprise visits? Secrets? a little romance? Twists, turns, red herrings and dead ends! A Must read!This is the third book in a fun and fantastic series!

But she seems to get involved with solving a murder and nearly getting herself murdered. In this book, she comes out of her shell even farther to prove who murdered one of the ornery residents of Le [...]

      I Love these books. That is all.Ok, after seeing how many reviews this book has on - currently 6- I have reconsidered my review and that is not all. This is the third book in the Leafy Hollow Mystery series, and these stories still hold up. My favorite of the cozy mysteries that I have read, the action centers around Verity Hawkes and her band of friends as they solve crimes better than the hunky local police officer does. Verity is our leading lady, armed with self help books and Krav Maga skil [...]

      Another great book in the series, full of twists and turns and added with a bit of humour you have an awesome mystery. Verity only went to the shop to get some lavender sprigs and lemons for her friend when she ended up getting into a battle with lucy for the lavender and that was the last time lucy was seen alive. Next thing everyone was talking about her body being found at the Base of the peak. Verity knew it couldn't of been an accident or even suicide as she didn't like heights. Verity gets [...]

    10. Carol on said:

      Lucy was the treasurer of the book club, difficult, annoying and generally a pain in the eye, but surely that did not qualify for her to be murdered so finding Lucy's body at the bottom of the Peak could only mean an accident. But Lucy was afraid of heights and there was no way that she could have scaled the Peak to have accidentally fallen down. And the only beneficiary in Lucy's will is Verity's best friend's Mum, Therese. In a small town like Leafy Hollow, gossip runs riot and before you know [...]

      Another fun trip into Leafy Hollow. It's always nice to catch up with Verity and the gang. And the pastries many pastries. I like that Verity's investigations are usually instigated by her affection for others, though I'm starting to think they could do a better job of thinking of the consequences of what they ask her to do.One of the nice things about a series like this is that I feel as though I get to venture into different parts of the locale with each book. I'm also able to learn a little m [...]

      This is my first book in the Leafy Hollow mystery series. After reading this one I definitely want to go back and read the first two!! Verity is the main character and sure has a lot going on in her life! A best friend she's left behind when she moved to Leafy Hollow comes for a surprise visit. And to complicate things her other best friend in Leay Hollow, Emy doesn't quite get along with Patty. Then there's Verity's aunt who may be dead or may not be dead! Add a little bit of romance to the mix [...]

      Cozy Mystery – Great Plot – Fun Page TurnerThis novel went by way too quickly. It is a full length novel with a solid ending. This is book three in a series and stands alone quite well. I can say that because this is the first one of the series that I’ve read. Judging by the quality of this book, I will not only read the rest of this series, but anything else that this author writes. I enjoy characters who are a bit flawed as in this heroine. There is plenty of humor as well as real suspen [...]

      The heroine is settling in her aunt's cottage and landscaping business. Her friendships are growing and new people introduced. Some of those people end up dead. The book club's hefty treasury is empty. The dead one's will is a surprise and an unknown career comes to light. Verity stumbles frequently on evidence because she is curious? An Idiot? A troublemaker? Cares for her friends or innocents that might be in danger? Maybe some or none or all of the. 2 Murders entice her thought processes and [...]

      This is the first novel I've read by Rickie Blair and it will most certainly not be the last! I loved this story and found it hard to put down. The setting was gorgeous (fellow Canuck here), the characters complex and believable - they remind you of people you know- and the plot was very well written and laugh out loud funny. A very well written whodunit that left me completely surprised at the end. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves their cozy mysteries sprinkled with humour and [...]

      I am loving this series. The first book was good, the second book was even better and now this third book in the series was great. Rickie Blair has created a series that the characters grow and become more interesting with each new book. You finish one and can't wait to read the next. Verity is still looking for her Aunt and that is the thread that runs throw each of these stories. I have enjoyed the on again off again tension between Verity and Jeff ( the cop) too. If you like clean fun cozy my [...]

    19. Cortnie on said:

      I have just recently discovered this author, and I'm so happy about it. This is a great cozy mystery, with all the things a cozy should have. There are quirky characters, a mystery that is suspenseful without being graphic, a surprise that is wrapped up with a bow at the end, and the ability to make you long for the next book. Verity and her friends are so much fun! I haven't read these books in order, so it is a stand alone, but I think the series would be better enjoyed if started with book 1. [...]

      Another Verity’s adventure. Well, sort of, she’s not looking for it, she’s just had penchant for drawing mystery. OK, a bit nosy as well. In good term.The mystery, the story, was very delightful. There were that humorous vibe everywhere, despite the complicated who-dunnit scenario. It’s really a cozy mystery at its best. I also loved the characters as they’re so everyday people, made them relatable to readers.A very worth-it reading!I was provided a complementary copy by the author / p [...]

    21. Melissa Castor on said:

      I enjoyed this book better than the last one. I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for a review. In this book, one of the book club members falls to her death and Verity's friend Emy's mother is the prime suspect. Verity, Emy, and Lorne set out to find the real killer and get themselves into some dangerous situations. Still no news on Verity's aunt, but it feels we are getting closer to finding the truth behind her disappearance. Looking forward to the next book and hoping Verity and J [...]

    22. Bev on said:

      Verity gets involved in another murder mystery even when she tries not to. The story line is great! There is humor, but not like 'stupid humor'. It keeps the story line from getting too 'dark'. This is a complicated who done it, and Verity is up for the challenge. I have read all the books in this series and they keep getting better and better. I received ARC of this book. The review is voluntary and of my own opinion. I highly recommend this series to those who like mysteries with a splash of h [...]

      The third book in the series is as fresh and entertaining as the first! The true-to-life cast of characters continue to gain depth amidst a new and intriguing mystery storyline. The now trademark humour is there to provide comic relief in a fast paced and intricate plotline. The author keeps you guessing as to who-done-it, which I won't spoil for anyone here.It is a pleasure to read a well thought out, well written cozy mystery set in my home province of Ontario, Canada. I only wish it included [...]

      Rickie Blair just keeps delivering in this the Leafy Hollow Mysteries Book 3, A Branch Too Far. This mystery kept me guessing right along with Verity through to the end of the book. The characters, both old and new are complete and feel like real people. Their relationships happen in ways that engage my emotions and I feel those emotions along with the characters. I can hardly wait for the next adventure.

    25. John on said:

      If you enjoy cozy mysteries where the amateurs solve or get in the way of the police, Rickie Blair has certainly got a series for you. This is the third book and it does not disappoint. It is filled with fun, excitement, adventure, and of course murder and mystery. And, of course, it leaves a few loose ends for the following book, which I am eagerly anticipating reading. This is a voluntary review of an Advanced Reader Copy of the book.

    26. Kay Tuck on said:

      This is the first book from this author that I have read, however it won't be the last. I was given an arc copy of the book for an honest review. I missed the first two books in the series and now I will go back and read them. The characters are believable and likable and I could see being friends with them. It had me guessing until the end. If you like a good mystery that is a cozy then this book is for you. I can't wait to start the first book in the series.

    27. Kathy on said:

      This was a fun read! Lots going on and lots of characters but easy to follow. Love Verity and her posse. She is always there for her friends and they return the favor. Lots of humor in this book along with mystery and romance. Really wish Emy's bakery was real and right next door! LOL! If you love cozies and great characters, then you'll love this series. I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

    28. Georganne on said:

      A must read. If you love cute, but thrilling mysteries, this is the book for you. Lucy dies from an accident, new resident, Marjorie is murdered. Is Lucy's death an accident? Take a fast adventurous ride with Verity to discover what she discovers. Great cozy with a little more "umph". Try it out.

    29. Emmie on said:

      With every book this series just gets more intriguing. Verity and her gang have a new mystery and murders to solve. And this one seems to be especially difficult. A wonderful, hilarious book, that keeps you guessing right up to the end. I never saw it coming. Thank you to the author for provinding me with the opportunity to read and review this book.

    30. Yvonne Gilbert on said:

      Great cozy series. This is the third book in the series and I cannot wait to read the next book. For me it's one of the series or just one book that I get hooked on and don't stop until I reach the end.
