Madness of MercuryAstrologer Julia Bonatti never thought her chosen profession would bring danger into her life, but her outspoken advice in her newspaper column, AskZodia, makes her the target of San Francisco’s recently-arrived cult leader, Reverend Roy of the Prophet’s Tabernacle. The followers of the power hungry preacher will stop at nothing to quell the voices of those who would stand in his way and Julia’s at the top of his list. She’s willing to bet the charismatic Reverend is a Mercury-ruled individual, and she knows all too well that Mercury wasn’t just the messenger of the gods, he was a trickster and a liar as well.

I really enjoyed The Madness of Mercury and I do not know if it is a coincidence that I read it during the Mercury retrograde, but that did not spoil the fun reading it. As a Cozy Mysterie should be The Madness of Mercury is a fun, easy, enjoyable and fast read. I also liked it that it combined the mysterie with astrology.

Veil of Deception

For years, Air Force Captain Jason Conrad flew and instructed in the supersonic T-38. Despite his decline into a self-destructive lifestyle, he was considered one of the best instructors on the base. Following a terrifying jet crash, Jason finds himself on a very short list of people on their way out the door. It is a surprise to everyone when he is assigned to the home of the U.S. Air Force Flight Test Center. Jason should have known that in a ‘one mistake Air Force’ where you ‘do more with less’, everything would not be what it appears. Attached to a secret project with a shadowy contractor, Jason is caught between two complications; an overbearing, retired general determined to see him fail; and an aggressive television reporter who wants him in prison. When a ghost from the past shows up and a beautiful, yet mysterious woman enters his life, Jason soon discovers his special project has more secrets than anyone knows about . . . and it could cost him his life.

Reading Veil of Deception was most definitely a roller coaster ride. There was so much happening I just had to keep reading I was afraid I would otherwise get lost in this multi-layered storyline. This is the second book in the Captain Jason Conrad series and I haven't read the first book Surly Bonds, but that did not bother me at all.
