    Even better than the last one! Nora and her nose are back and sniffing out murderers. This was another fun installment in the series. Even better than the last one. Looking forward to more Nora and the gang.

She spends her days surrounded by events at her spa, soap, and oil boutique where she works with her masseuse best friend Gilly. Since losing her mom to cancer, opening Scents and Scentability and dating hot detective Ezra Holden, things are going pretty well for her. Right now though, he’s got his son Mason for two weeks and has asked if Nora wants to meet him. So, she’s wondering if things are getting serious. Of course with any book by Renee George, things become complicated and Gilly's ex husband turns up annoying her at the same time Nora finds a body whilst taking a back stretching break under the restaurant where she's with Ezra and Mason. The police are called, an investigation starts, but the girl's family want Nora to help. I loved this second instalment. The romance and relationship aspects are deeper, though Nora constantly worries about the fact she's fifty one and Easy (Ezra) is much younger. She has back trouble, she's on HRT, and suffers with allergies. I love that she also Jones about her hot flashes and such female issues with her best friends. It's funny, tense iro the growing investigation and apart from her smell-o-vision, she's just a middle she's woman trying to make her way in the world and in her relationship. Great stuff

    Just a bunch of running around the place, and not applying any logic. I wanted to yell at the characters: "Think people, think and stop being so lackadaisical! You have a murderer to catch for cripes sake. Stop the smooching and get on with it!" VERY MINOR POSSIBLE SPOILER It was also very obvious from the very beginning who the antagonists were, so no surprise at the reveal. POSSIBLE MINOR SPOILER OVER A very poor mystery indeed.

There was more concentration on romance than mystery. If that's your thing, go for it but I can't tell you if the romance parts were bad or good since to me, they are all bad. ;) With so many PWFs out there, with awesome authors, I find this series quite boring. I'm sticking with the original fab 13 and skipping those that jumped on the bandwagon when they saw how well these books sold. (For now) :) If you for some reason don't know who the fab 13 are, here's a list: ▪️Shannon Mayer (It's all her fault. She started it and roped her 12 friends into the PWF.) ▪️Jana Deleon ▪️Eve Langlais ▪️Elizabeth Hunter ▪️Mandy M Roth ▪️K.F. Breene ▪️Michelle M Pillow ▪️Deanna Chase ▪️Christine Gael ▪️Kirsten Painter ▪️Robyn Peterman ▪️Darynda Jones ▪️Denise Grover Swank I Have read most of them but there's a few more left. Two or maybe three, I think. Of those fab 13, well 10 or 11 for me, I enjoyed Shannon Mayer (but of course!), Kirsten Painter, K.F. Breene and Robyn Peterman the most.

    How I love this series let me count the ways: 1. Nora may be in her fifties but she is tough as nails. 2. Detective hottie doesn’t let Nora’s age get in the way of his feelings and is there for her when she needs/wants him. 3. Gillie and Pippa are a terrific BFF brigade. 4. The mystery is engaging. I’m loving this series and can’t wait for more.

    What a wonderful story about women 50 +. Even though I’m past that, I definitely enjoyed it and encourage everyone to read the book.

Especially since she is seeing Detective "Hottie" Ezra Holden who is younger than she is! After surviving an almost fatal hysterectomy, she now has a paranormal ability to smell visions of things that happened. This could get in the way. Nora meets the niece of her friend on the police force, Reese who introduces her to her niece Fiona a seemingly sweet girl, who actually gave off a paranormal sense when they shook hands. But Reese, who was upset with her niece, for bad behavior didn't want to know what the vision was. Meantime, Detective Holden has his teenage son staying with him for the holiday weekend and he wants Nora to meet him. While at the restaurant, she excuses herself to sneak outside, out of sight to stretch her back muscles that were killing her and not wanting to let onto Mason, Ezra's son (doesn't want to look too old to him). But, all things go south when she finds the body of Fiona, dead in the water. Where is Fiona's ring? And so the investigation begins, with officer Reese wanting Nora to enter into the investigation with her abiities to see what she could find. Who wanted Fiona dead and why? What does it have to do with the GCE an elite boy's club? Was it someone from her past? Will Nora get too close? Then add another thread when her BFF, Gilly's ex-husband decided to have time with their kids for the first time in years for a visit in California. But then he shows up with the kids in town and decides he wants to get back with Gilly, who has been done with him for years. And now, he gets a job in town so he is staying and keeps trying to get Gilly to go back to him. Nora is a mama bear when she protects her friends and her loathing of Gilly's ex-husband is very apparent! With some laughs and lots of twists and turns this second book in this Nora Black series is a winner and I can't wait for more! I received an ARC from the author but the opinions expressed here are strictly my own

    Nora is in the thick of things again... Nora Black and her friends are back in this second series installment. Gilly and Nora are in their way out to dinner one night when they run into Officer Reese and her cousin, Fiona.

Nora Black and her friends are back in this second series installment. Gilly and Nora are in their way out to dinner one night when they run into Officer Reese and her cousin, Fiona. Nora can tell that things are strained between the two cousins but, both are pleasant and then on their way again. The next morning, Nora wakes for work suffering from severe allergies. She arrives at work and Pippa sends Nora to the pharmacy to get herself some allergy pills to relieve her awful allergies. While in the pharmacy, Nora runs into Fiona but, she seems frightened and off and Fiona abruptly leaves the Pharmacy after Phil enters. Later that night, Nora goes out to dinner with Ezra and his teenaged son, Mason, although, she is still having severe spasms in her back. She excuses herself from the table and goes in search of a place to stretch her back in privacy. She ends up under the steps of the restaurant where she discovers China's dead body floating in the water. This is where the story begins. The storyline is interesting, the characters well developed, and the whole premise is engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed this storyline and can't wait to read book three when it comes out. I highly recommend this series and am impatiently awaiting the next book.

    This series has me hooked. It is not typical as the main character is 50ish, and she is a cougar at that! Characters that you can relate to and envision, and such a fun, well-written story, you can drop yourself right into it.

I was completely surprised by the ending! The absolute MOST fun part of this book is that Nora's visions are triggered by scent! How original is that?! So, that being said, go meet the entire cast of characters and hang on for a bumpy ride in a page-turner that you will not want to put down. If you can't read it at once, pick a stopping point (chapter wise) in the book, otherwise, you risk not getting anything else done. Snarky, funny, engaging, why are you still reading this, just go get the book (and the first one!) I received a complimentary 'ARC of this book and this opinion is expressly mine.

More importantly, will she live to solve the crimes? A great read with strong ladies over forty living life and taking names.

    50 something sucks sometimes. When your muscle memory expects you to do one thing and your body just says no. I have friends who like Nora can’t find their readers or read small print without them. Personally I can’t walk without my glasses, so less of an age thing. I can relate to expecting to see a younger person in the mirror than the one who looks back at you. Nora has the great advantages of having two close friends to help her past the menopausal sniffles and mood swings. With luck, they c 50 something sucks sometimes.

    Nora continues to give us entertainment in her world as we enter within. Still think it is a hoot how it occurred. We also do not want to forget her hottie whom we get more of in here. Another reason why I really enjoy this series and her is because of her age. Those best friends are the best too. One of course Gilly's comes along in this being a pain. Then the body oh boy a mystery to solve. In this one more can occur because we have already met Nora so I do like this one alot.

    Nora Black not only has the power of her nose, she also has a knack for following leads, tying up loose ends, and arriving at quick and accurate conclusions. Her father made a good work teaching her. The story had me intrigued all the time trying to follow Nora's analytical mind and needless to say, her witty comments and how the blame of age was not helping her, I chuckled a lot. Suspense, mystery, amusing scenes, romance and an interesting plot development that had me enjoying the intrigue unt Nora Black not only has the power of her nose, she also has a knack for following leads, tying up loose ends, and arriving at quick and accurate conclusions.

    Would you enjoy the ability to sniff the past? Just think if you sniff a person you might be able to see snippets of their past. Just think you cannot control what you see so you might get a yucky surprise. This is a twist that Nora Black has received. Love her girl click of Pippa and Gilly, a woman needs these kind of friends. Throw in a sexy younger man for a "boyfriend" and the occasional murder who would ask for more.

    Nora might be middle age but she and her besties along with hot-stuff Ezra aren’t letting that stop her from taking life and her new found abilities at a fast pace. I just adore Nora and all of the characters in this book. Another great mystery with action and don’t stop reading until you get to the end. This is the second book in the series, for the best understanding of Nora and her journey, you should read the first one. However you won’t miss it if you read them out of order.

    Trouble seems to find Nora Black, who can sense other people’s memories through smell. When a police officer asks for her assistance in confirming whether her cousin actually drowned accidentally, Nora can’t help herself. Her sleuthing definitely puts her in the line of danger. Her best friends join the mix and are aided by her new boyfriend, a detective on the police force. Readers will love this group of supportive characters.

    Book 2 excellent So very glad ...book 2 was just as entertaining as book 1. Never bored one minute of reading. I love a book where despite some of the more serious times, there are also times where I just laugh out loud in sheer joy. Not crazy mascots funny but just normal everyday stuff that happens to people that causes mouths to voice words that normally would not be spoken. Funny stuff. Love this series. Now on to book 3.

This book ticks all the boxes for me - page-turning suspense, fantastic storyline and awesome characters! I can’t wait for Nora’s next adventure and to see her and a Detective Hottie’s relationship blossom.

    Wonderful story Nonstop page turner. Nora is 51 and living life on her terms. Wonderful friends who are her family and a hot detective who can frisk her anytime. Having a psychic sense of smell has it ups and downs. Murder, mystery and romance. Nice to see older woman with a younger man. No cliffhanger and hea. Great series.

    Awesome conclusion Nora and Ezra have their hands full when his son comes for a visit, her best friend's ex moves back to town and Nora finds the dead body of a young woman. Her house is trashed, she's having back spasms. What else can go wrong? This is the conclusion to book one, but Nora will have more adventures in book 3. Looking forward to it!!

    I loved this 2nd book in the series. Nora is really good at stumbling into trouble. I must admit her description of her back spasms could have been written about mine and it totally cracked me up. Love the relationship she is having with Ezra. Waiting impatiently for the next book :D
