Hi Susan!

As a reader, I always like to read a series in order. I like to feel as though I'm experiencing things as the characters do, chronologically. That said, each Liz Talbot Mystery can be read as a standalone. There are certain things you will have more insight into if you read in order, but it isn't necessary to follow the story, and you won't be lost if you decide to start with book two or three. I hope this helps!

My best,

I love Crock-Pot recipes, especially in fall and winter. Even though it’s still plenty warm in South Carolina right now, we turned the clocks back, the leaves are falling, and I’m planning meals in the Crock-Pot.


Here’s one of my go-to recipes. I developed it over time, combining several recipes I liked, then adding other things I liked and taking away things I didn’t. It’s my trial-and-error ch...

“Colleen appeared on the loveseat. “Stay.” “I’m staying, all right?” I leaned forward. “Would you please find Gram? Find out what happened.” Colleen turned transparent. “Can’t.” Her voice echoed. “Why are you here if you can’t help?” I shouted. “Merry.” The whisper was so loud it filled the room. “What”
