Thanks for piclking that series. I seem to recall it is only 3 novels plus a short story long. Knocking off the first 2 next month will help clear a series from my TBR.

Mary Ann,
You have some really great series listed, so it is really hard to choose. That said, I choose the Hannah Swenson cozies for you for November. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Jeanne
