    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.Fun and mystery are just two of the reasons I love Cozies.

    I am a big fan of Caroline Fardig's Java Jive Mystery series so when I came across this book I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed. Ms. Fardig has a talent of making you think you have the mystery all figured out only to find that you are totally wrong. That was certainly true of this story. When an affluent troublemaker is murdered there are plenty of suspects and lots of clues to sort through but in the end the true murderer will surpr...

    Oh my gosh I fell in love from the first few pages. I loved the whole southern feel of the story and Quinn was just totally awesome. Loved her attitude and demeanor. Just an all around great character! It's a place I may would love to visit minus the murder and mystery part of course!This was book three of the series but it can be read easily as a stand alone but I enjoyed this installment so much I am going back and start from the beginning! *I ...

    Southern Double Cross" is the 3rd instalment in the ”Southern B&B Mystery” series by Caroline Fardig. I read a novella by Caroline in Year-Round Trouble Anthology and enjoyed it so thought I would give this a try. I found the story to be very entertaining and have purchased the previous books in the series. Even though this is the first book I have read in the series I was able to follow along easily so it can be read as a stand alone. I real...

    I have enjoyed reading this new series by Caroline Fardig and this latest installment was very entertaining. I love that this series is centered around sisters. They have a great sibling relationship that plays out very naturally. Having a sister that is very close in age allows me to relate to these characters and become engaged and invested in the story. Once again, Quinn is in the wrong place at the right time and there is another dead body. T...
  • Noriko
    This is the third installment of the Southern B&B Mystery and my second book from the author. The introductory part of the story gripped me right off the bat, it's a brisk, fast-paced, and entertaining cozy-mystery overall.I loosely used the term 'cozy-mystery' to describe this book and while it's true to some extent, but I found the overall tone of this book is rather serious and down-to-earth and I put it down to the solid, strong descriptions ...

    From Random House/Alibi comes the latest in the “A Southern B&B Mystery” series from Caroline Fardig.I like Quinn a lot, she’s cautious, polite, and slightly afraid to speak her mind but she still has courage. She is the ultimate southern lady. I love her sister Delilah, she is spunky, not scared to tell people what she thinks! I love cozies that have a B&B base and this book delivers. The inn sounds like it would be fun to stay in, the foo...

    I loved the first book in this series, Southern Discomfort, and it was such a long wait until book 2, Southern Harm, was released. I was super excited to see that book 3 was coming out so soon after I spent time with the Bellandini sisters. Southern Double Cross has Quinn and Delilah working to clear their friend Pepper’s brother Parker after a wealthy woman is murdered at a fundraiser. There are so many things I love about this series. The cha...
  • Carla Johnson-Hicks
    This is the third book in the Southern B&B Mystery series by Caroline Fardig. Although there is some continuation in the development of the characters and their relationships, the mystery is self-contained and this book can be read as a standalone story. Having said that, I have read all three in the series and would recommend you read them all. Quinn Bellandini and her sister Delilah have a great relationship, Not only do they work together at t...

    This is the third book in the Southern B&B Mystery series, and though I somehow missed the reading the second book, I had no trouble following this one.
