Helen (helennn) | 653 comments Hi Lori,
I'll have to pick one of my favourite series for you, the Scumble River mysteries.


message 34: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Helen, I pick The Murder of the Cat's Meow series for you. I love cats and I haven't read this series. I will be waiting to see if you like it.

Julesy | 398 comments Kay, I pick the Hooked and Cooked by Lyndsey Cole series for you. I've seen that series and it looks interesting! I'm adding it to my list. Please share how you like the books after you've read them.

Linda,

I pick the Outer Banks Baker series for you... I've enjoyed it too, and may still have a couple to read if you want to do a Buddy Read on them...


message 37: by Helen (new)

Helen (helennn) | 653 comments Jacki, I'm confused. You have nominated a series I not only didn't post, but have never heard of.


message 38: by Helen (new)

Helen (helennn) | 653 comments Sorry about the last comment. I guess you mean the Scumble River series. The Cat's Meow is one of the titles, not the name of the series.
I have ordered several of the newer ones I haven't read yet, but only one has arrived. I'm looking forward to continuing this series.

Jeanne (oldemill) | 204 comments Hello again Anna Catharina (remembered to spell your name right this time). I am choosing the T.C. LoTempio: (Nick and Nora Mysteries) for you. You've got some good ones listed and I almost went with Martin Walker and the vineyard mysteries for you, but the takeoff on Nick and Nora Charles was just too good to pass up. I will be interested to see if you like them so that I can add them to my to read list.
