Reading Corner: Dalton and Dalton Mysteries by Kathleen Marks

I got the first book in this series, a novella, in a group of eBooks purchased all at the same time. I loved it so much I tracked down the second and read it a couple weeks ago. Here are my reviews for both books. If you like those cozy mystery books or a little bit of a ghost story (I'm not really into super scary, but I like a fun ghost story), you might like this series.

To Sleep No More by Kathleen Marks

To Sleep No More (A Dalton & Dalton Preternatural Mystery Novella #1)

I was pleasantly surprised by this novella. I had no idea what I was getting into, but it was a part of a group of books I picked up at the same time so I just started reading.  Of all the books, this one grabbed my attention and stuck. I loved the characters, the mystery, and the surprising elements, like glowing cats and ghosts. It was like one of my mother’s little cozy mystery books she loves and mixed up with the adventure and magic that I love. A fast read, and so much unexpected fun!

A Fearful Thing by Kathleen Marks

A Fearful Thing: (A Dalton & Dalton Mystery) (Dalton & Dalton Paranormal Mysteries Book 2)

I couldn’t stop thinking about the first book in this series, so I tracked down the second when I realized it was out. It was even better than the first! I loved the developing relationship between Alex and Rick. Their pain is real, and their interactions compelling. I was enjoying the love story from the start, but then when all the ghosts, mystery and treasuring hunting showed up, I couldn’t put it down. It was fun, sad, suspenseful and even a little scary. A great and quick read.  My only question is where is the next book?


  1. Awesome! I love it when a story grabs you and you HAVE to read more. I think I'll put these on my TBR list.
