Katie Fitzgerald (mrskatiefitz) | 2 comments I just started Murder of a Small-Town Honey by Denise Swanson, which I found at the public library. I've only read a couple of chapters, but so far I like it.

I love this series!!!! It always has me craving cupcakes though. It's definitely a "snack and read" series!

A fabulous art! I usually have one ebook and one paperback on the go, and sometimes mix in a audiobook :)

I love that series by Meg London. I was so sad when they discontinued it :(

Christine | 3 comments Right now I'm reading The Diva Serves High Tea by Krista Davis


message 18: by Creative Caprice (new)

Creative Caprice | 4 comments I just finished If Walls Could Talk by Juliet Blackwell and really enjoyed it. I'll definitely continue with the series and check out the other series she wrote as well. It had well developed characters and a little paranormal element, but the mystery aspect was still really good.

I haven't read this series but I love her Witchcraft Mysteries. There is a pet pig in those mysteries, which just sounds too cute for words.

What's on everyone's weekend stack? I'm reading Blueberry Muffin Murder by Joanne Fluke and spending time with my favourite black cat, Hamlet, in Literally Murder by Ali Brandon!


message 22: by iasa (new)

iasa Almost finished with I'll Be Seeing You by Mary Higgins Clark. After that I'm not sure what to read. A trip to the library might be in order, although it's not as if I don't have plenty of books to choose from at home.

Has anyone read the English Garden Mystery series by Anthony Eglin?

Been a long time since I checked in with that series. Read the first two and have the next two on my bookshelf.


message 35: by iasa (new)

iasa On the last trip to the library I got six or seven books from series I haven't read it. After only getting a few pages through three of them before giving them up I hope I will have better luck with The Christie Curse

I hope you have better luck with The Christie Curse. That's a fun series, although I'm a big fan of books about books, so I might be a bit biased!


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

I was struggling through the aftermath of dental surgery and am now back on my feet, I finished Lemon Meringue Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke and I'm just finishing up Literally Murder by Ali Brandon and starting All the Little Liars by Charlaine Harris.

There are way too many good cozies out there to read!!

Yay! More Agatha Raisin!! <3 her! I love Nancy Coco's fudge series too, since I love making fudge :)


message 40: by iasa (new)

iasa I accidently returned The Christie Curse to the library before I finished it, but the first three pages were excellent!
I have no cozies to read at the moment but I'm making due with some other general murder and mayhem reading with Skinwalkers and At the Hands of a Stranger

Oh no! You will have to borrow it out again!! I've read the first two in that series and I bought the third one a little while ago. There are too many great series and not enough time.


message 42: by [deleted user] (new)

I finished Literally Murder by Ali Brandon this morning. It was so good!! I love Hamlet, the cat in the series. It feels good to read it as I had that one on my shelf for a year or more.

Now onto more Joanne Fluke for me!


message 43: by iasa (new)

iasa Yesterday I finished Strawberry Shortcake Murder and January Thaw. I was really enjoying this later one until the ending, then meh not so much. But I think I will try another one from her.

Planning to start Cinco de Mayhem and One Foot in the Grove this weekend.
