Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Fun #CosyCrime #RomCom – Caper Crush by Kathy Strobos

My Review:

This is a brilliant mix of opposites attract and romcom mystery, too
With great characters, clues and relationship dramas to entertain you.
A great opportunity to be involved in a special art show
Is ruined when Miranda's key painting is stolen, what a blow!

With little time to investigate the dastardly theft
Artist Miranda is determined to make the most of what's left.
The other painting stolen at the time is very valuable and well known
One that others would be proud to own.

Working with William isn't her idea of a treat
But he's determined, self-assured and won't be beat.
She's feisty, acts first and reacts
He's thoughtful and thinks before he acts.

With friends and relatives amongst the suspects they find
It is difficult to consider who'd be so unkind.
But together the duo will explore all the clues to discover
Who took the painting and them both to recover.

The story is intriguing with plenty of twists, too,
And had me laughing nearly all the way through.
What a fun read and cosy mystery story, too,
So I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to you.

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.


A feel-good, opposites-attract, slow burn romantic comedy

Somebody stole my painting! The one I need for the career-defining Vertex Art Exhibit. This upcoming art show is my chance to finally be recognized as an artist—after ten years of waitressing and being asked if I still have that “lovely painting hobby.”

I have mere weeks to find my painting or lose my artist dream forever—but it’s going to mean working with William.

William Haruki Matsumura. Good-looking, if you like the Secret Service type. You know, law-abiding, protector of women and children. That’s all fine, but I can never tell what he’s thinking. Which drives me crazy.

He insists on coming along to do “damage control.” As if “accidentally” wandering into certain areas is “breaking and entering.” I may be an emotional artist, but William shouldn’t dismiss my investigative skills yet.

William is definitely my opposite, and, if there’s one takeaway from my parents’ divorce, it’s that opposites might attract, but it doesn’t last. But detecting with William is kind of fun—and fluttery. I definitely can’t trust these feelings, or can I? However this caper ends, I think this may be more than a crush.

    Thank you! This poem is brilliant! I particularly love this line: “She’s feisty, acts first and reacts
    He’s thoughtful and thinks before he acts.”
