Re: What are you reading right now?

I am about half-way through Ellery Adams' latest in her second book featuring Ella May LeFay, magical baker., Peach Pies and Alibis. I only dread getting to the end because then I will want to read the next book to see what Ella May and her mother and aunts are up to, but that book hasn't been written yet!(or at least not published, which is basically what counts in my view! :catlol:)

Re: What are you reading right now?

Just finished reading the second Dandy Gilver book by Catriona MacPherson. Quite the roller coaster mystery--about the time Dandy thought she was getting to the bottom of the mystery, here would come another revelation. SPOILER ALERT. I just loved the scene where Hugh rolled into the police station where Dandy had been grilled by Inspector Smellie for hours, and knocked him down with one swift blow! I have re-read those particular pages several times now.

I've read a couple of these but not this one. I'll add it to my to-be-read pile!

Re: What are you reading right now?

I'm very excited - I received an advance copy of Duffy Brown's next Consignment Shop mystery. I'm really enjoying it and I LOVE the cover!

Just finished reading one book by Annette Blair and am about three-fourths through the second book(though should clarify they are not in that order in the series).

I love this series! I was lucky enough to meet Annette Blair last summer - at a Mystery party at Duffy Brown's house! Coincidentally, I just finished the second book in Duffy's Consignment Shop series. Another winner!

 

In the book, she mentions adding a children's section to the consignment shop. I wonder if the real shop Duffy works at has a kids' section? The last time I was there babies were so far off my radar I didn't even notice. Now I'm a five-hour drive away. Oh well!

Re: What are you reading right now?

I'm reading Hound of the Baskervilles.  A blog review suggested my book read like a Sherlock Holmes mystery.  So I thought I'd see if I agree.  Here's what the blogger said: http://bookwormsoup.blogspot.com/2013/04/the-epitaph-of-jonas-barloff-by-calvin.html

If you type "Sherlock Holmes" into the Search box at the upper right, you'll find links to a lot of Sherlock Holmes discussions we've had here in the past.

Re: What are you reading right now?

I managed to get some reading in amongst all the activities of my cousin's reunion: Since I found that there are earlier Dandy Gilver books by Catriona McPherson, I've been checking them out of the library.
