I finally finished Eclair and Present Danger. The second half picked up some and didn't seem so draggy. Have to admit my favorite characters were Mr. Nelson and Bridget. Liked Lovey too.

Not sure what I will start next, maybe Murder Handcrafted by Isabella Alan.

This past week I finished reading:

  • Grilled for Murder by Maddie Day
  • Death on a Deadline by Christine Lynxwiler
  • Vanilla Beaned by Jenn McKinlay
  • Death Under Glass by Jennifer McAndrews
  • Aunt Bessie Finds by Diana Xarissa
  • A Wedding and a Killing by Lauren Carr

I liked all the above books, especially Vanilla Beaned which had a surprise ending and Grilled for Murder which I just like the characters and setting. Using some of them in the States part of the cozy challenge, which I'm almost finished with.

It is set in Washington state. Main character owns a yarn store. Love her farm and two Great Pyrenees dogs!!!  Very nice story.

I finished Murder Spins a tale. I was okay but very simplistic, you could tell it was her first book.

I am now reading The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum (Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum, Bk 1) :: Kirsten Weiss

Not too far into it yet but seems okay

I have both the Flock and Fiber books on my Kindle and really didn't care for them. I thought there wasn't much substance to them and and no depth to the characters.

Three Sisters by Helen Smith has a dagger on the front!  Not a bad book! Very short, only about 85 pages.
