1357 @Courtney - absolutely!

1357 I've got to decide between -

Town in a Blueberry Jam (A Candy Holliday Murder Mystery, #1) by B.B. Haywood Some Like It Hot-Buttered (Double Feature Mystery #1) by Jeffrey Cohen Tressed to Kill (Southern Beauty Shop) by Lila Dare.

Hmmmmm........all 3 are on my nook which is in my car. I live on the third floor of my apartment building so I don't feel like going to get it. Think I'll listen to Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner until tomorrow.

1357 Last Saturday I finished Glazed Murder and am giving it 2 stars. I really wanted to like it, but just thought the characters, especially the dialogue!, fell flat. I might try the second book to see if the series gets better, but it's nowhere near the top of my list.

Today I finished A Slice of Murder which I liked. I liked the main characters, especially the two sisters Eleanor and Maddie, as well as the small town setting. I wish there had been a little more description of the pizzas and pizza making process.
1357 I'm a little past halfway in Glazed Murder: A Donut Shop Mystery and it's not doing a whole lot for me. It's compelling enough to finish but unless something changes I won't be going out of my way to read more.
1357 @Bookworm - I was also going to suggest the audio books for this series. The narrator does an excellent job!
1357 Anytime! Sorry to make your TBR pile grow. :)
1357 @ Dru - Rolling Thunder is definitely the sixth in the series. The first five are Tilt-A-Whirl, Mad Mouse, Whack-A-Mole, Hell Hole, and Mind Scrambler. I recommend them all highly!

@ Denise - Totally makes sense to me. It is extremely rare that I give up on a book. I probably should more often, but just can't hardly do it!

I absolutely adore this series!!!! It's technically not a cozy series since the 2 protagonists are cops, but while the plot is always a good, meaty mystery, the books are very funny. Chris Grabenstein was a stand-up comedian at one point in his life and that comes through.
The first book in the series is Tilt-A-Whirl. Enjoy!
1357 I've started Rolling Thunder A John Ceepak Mystery by Chris Grabenstein and am loving it! Can't wait to get home tonight and read, read, read!

1357 Just finished Pushing Up Daisies. I loved the mystery plots - very intriguing and kept me wondering until the end! I'm not sure about the protagonist though. Not that I disliked Paula Holliday; more like I didn't get a good feel for who she was. I'll try the next book in the series at some point.

If nothing else, I finished the yellow ray in my Spring Challenge rainbow. :)

1357 I've been using PBS for the past few months and have been very happy with the service. Seems like you can't get the hottest titles right away, but I've found plenty of books I like.

Those have been on my list forever! But since I'm so anal retentive, I can't start with Jayne going to college since there's a few before it. :)

1357 I found a few for Dads & Grads..........

1357 I'm in the midst of Pushing Up Daisies. Can't say I'm loving it, but I am definitely intrigued by the mystery - I have absolutely no idea whodunnit!

1357 @Heather L - hold that thought! I was thinking of "bountiful harvest / farm" for July.

Jeffrey Cohen has a cozy series about a dad. I've not read any yet, but they've been "on my list." Shoot, I left my spreadsheet at work - I'll list some more books tomorrow.

1357 I'm going to start with the movie theme and challenge myself to read Some Like It Hot-Buttered. For weddings, I've been wanting to check out Veiled Threats by Deborah Donnelly. The sleuth is a wedding planner.

1357 It doesn't even seem possible that we're looking to June already!

June Themes:
1) Celebrate "Dads & Grads" by reading a book featuring a father or student
2) June is THE wedding month - read a book involving a wedding, engaagement, honeymoon, or anniversary
3) Time for all the great new summer movie releases! Read a mystery involving movies or film-making.
