Are you reading "Tippy Toe Murder"? If you are, could you let me know where the scene is that references or contains child abuse (the chapter and where in the chapter it is)? I am wanting to skip that scene, but want to read the book... someone mentioned on this forum sometime back that one scene in it would be hard for new moms to read...

it's just very brief, it doesn't go into detail.  it first mentions it in chapter 24. then again briefly on page 187. it's not detailed or anything but I'd understand why you'd want to skip it. I didnt know about it beforehand. I was a little surprised.

Thanks Mary for letting me know where the scene was. I am excited to read the book, but wanted to skip that section. :-)

i'm on the 4th one now, I'm enjoying them but i find it too easy to figure out who did it!

Oh I HATE THAT. I had the same problem with "Alpine for You" by Maddy Hunter, and then for a complete change of pace selected "Latte Trouble" by Cleo Coyle and I have figured that one out too quickly, too. I really like to be surprised!

I can't believe your already on the 4th book, you are a quick reader. I wish I could get through some of mine that quickly, but I only have one hour a day (if I also read during the twins nap overlap I can add another 45 minutes on to that), and am not that quick. In fact, I often keep a series in front of me, and while reading book 3, will flip back to book 2 or 1 if something seems like a discrepency.

Leslie,

the only reason I have had this much time to read is because I injured my back last week so I can't really do much else but sit/lay around Most of the time I don't have that much time either.

At least we have a good and educational hobby for being essentially housebound. Before having the twins, I mainly only read in the winter months as I have always been an outdoor enthusiast in the warmer months... but, now I am essentially home most of the week, and reading is my escape. I think thats why I like cozies that take place in areas I would like to visit, or have a theme that I would like to learn more about.
