Yummy Holiday Read
Still other series I follow seem to involve yummy treats( complete with recipes) . One such author writes the Tea Shop Mysteries, Laura Childs. Her books center around a Charleston, South Carolina tea shop and well the main character who owns it is another amateur detective, as most Cozy Mystery characters are, and she always gets into major trouble, often life threatening when sticking her nose where it does not really belong. And the list goes on and on, will list a few more at bottom of blog!
Tonight I shall start on a holiday themed book, also food based, what makes this one nice is it includes three wonderful writers who in the beginning were not my favorite, but again gave them the chance and they grew on me and now I can not wait until each new book comes out. The three authors included in the book of holiday mini mysteries are Joanne Fluke, Laura Levine and Leslie Meier. The book is called Gingerbread Cookie Murder. I can hardly wait to brew a cup of tea and crack open the cover and escape amongst the pages. When I am there, life , no matter what is going on seems to fade away and for that time all is good in my world. I shall let you know how it is.
I would love to hear what you have read lately. When I finish this I am all out of books and as right now money is a bit too tight for purchasing, I shall be venturing to the Library...been a while..so would love to hear of books I should look for when I do.
A couple other recommendations:
Cat Who Mysteries :Lilian Jackson Braun
The Scumble River Mysteries:Denise Swanson
Not just for young adults....all books by L.M. Montgomery....classics!!
***I do read other styles, from self improvement to true ghost stories and quite a bit in between, but "Cozies" are my favorite.
