REVIEW: BATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH BY ELLIE ALEXANDER

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

What it is about
Jules is a baker and she is participating in a show that is shooting in the town she lives in. One of the participants is very unlikeable and he is found murdered on the set. Jules is asked to stay out of the investigation but she finds herself involved in it anyway. 

POV- first person from Jules

HEA/HFN- yes

Funny parts- yes

Sad parts- some 

Trigger warning- murder

Realistic scale- 1/5

Pick this up if
You want cute, fun and addictive cozy mysteries. You want likeable main characters. You enjoy an amateur sleuths who gets themselves in trouble. You like a lot of red herrings. You like the reality TV show storyline. 

Don’t pick this up if
You don’t like unrealistic books. You hate it when books have an extremely slow burn romance. You hate it when the main characters don’t do enough sleuthing.

I get asked how I read so many books. This is how I do it:
Kindle Unlimited (definitely worth it for romance readers)
Audible (2 free audiobooks for your first month); I have the Audible Premium Plus with 2 credits a month
Prime membership allows me to get new books at my doorstep fast (get the first month free). I have Prime Student which comes with a 6 month free trial.
Scribd
I also had Audible Escape but it got cancelled 😦
But Audible Plus is supposed to have a lot of books across all genres

The perfect gifts for a loved one
Audible gift membership
