Sandi, did you look at Cynthia's list of available first in series?  Two other books got 5 votes along with Murder on Monday - Shop Til You Drop and A Killer Plot.

See her list here

Of your two, I'd go with Murder on Monday due to it getting more votes on the list.

Even though I already voted, I'll be happy with whatever the group picks to read.

@Carole...I didn't even think of looking on Cynthia's list.  Sorry.  I could add those other two to the voting list if that'd be more helpful.

I would vote for either of the two listed in the first post.

Of the other two on Cynthia's list, I've already read (and enjoyed) one and I think I started, but didn't bother to finish the other.

Forgot to look for a new thread for this month!  I'm pretty sure I have this one, so I should be ok.

Don't forget to start reading your books! One week until the discussion starts. Sandy is going to be busy moving so I'm going to do this one.

I just started, only a few pages in. They get right to the killing though, lol. It's like page 2.

Finished. It picks up a bit right towards the end but it could have done better with half of it edited out.

Oh shoot, I wasn't paying attention to the date. Do we have any discussers? I'm not seeing much in the way of replies here.
