Steph (angel4492) | 29020 comments Welcome everyone! This is my version of a challenge mishmash comprised of some new and some old bits and pieces of prior SOS challenges. Glad to see so many are giving it a go.

Danielle Book Boss (daniellebookboss) | 1009 comments Does an Inn Keeper Sweep in Peace count as a behind the counter job?

Sandra | 23887 comments Danielle, yes. Dina manages the Gertrude Hunt Inn so that qualifies.

Nancy (nancyhelen) | 151 comments Do all books need to fit in with the SOS genres (PNR, UF etc.) or is it OK to add a few from other kinds of series (i.e. Crime)?


message 48: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29020 comments Mixing in a few from other genres is allowed, NancyHelen.

PS: Hope you & your family are settling in well in Oz. :)
