Abbie Sorry, but I wont be able to be captain, is there anyone that could do it?


message 11: by Abbie (last edited May 30, 2017 03:44AM) (new)

Abbie We only have a few days to plan ladies.

I have played a few times before, has anyone else?

I guess I could be persuaded to be captain if need be.


message 12: by Logan (new)

Logan (loganturner) | 904 comments I can captain us, but I won't be able to roll until Friday mornings when I get up (about 7am EDT). If there's someone in a better time zone that wants to roll for us, I can handle the post organization and reporting.

Hi Team, checking in! Thanks for sending the link, Abbie! I'm catching a flight home in a couple hours, so I'll try to think of some name suggestions and will check in again after I land in Phoenix.

Thanks for volunteering! I'm in the same time zone, so that's when I'd roll too. It doesn't bother me to wait, it's not like I would actually start reading earlier, but if there is anyone in a later time zone, it does help them out to have an earlier roll.

Week 1 - Spot 7


Book:
Aunt Dimity Detective (An Aunt Dimity Mystery, #7) by Nancy Atherton Aunt Dimity: Detective
Author: Nancy Atherton
How it fits: #7 in Aunt Dimity series
Date read: 06/04/17
Rating: 3 stars
Review: Mrs. Hooper is a newcomer to the small town of Finch, England, and she is also a troublemaker. She spies on everyone in town and spreads gossip and rumors just out of spite. So no one is too broken up when Mrs. Hooper's body is found dead in her home one morning. Lori and the vicar's visiting nephew, Nicholas Fox, decide to do a bit of investigating themselves when it seems the townsfolk are not going to help the police with this investigation. And while Lori is enjoying spending time with the attractive Mr. Fox, he does seem to be taking this investigation rather seriously for someone who has no real connection to the town. This was a solid entry in the Aunt Dimity series. I didn't feel like Dimity played much of a role in this book, but it was still an interesting mystery and an okay book.

Hi team, if any of you notice a random comment from me on your profile page that includes a link to a reading app, please ignore or delete that. I was trying out a reading app called Booke, and it posted comments on all my Goodreads friends' pages unbeknownst to me. And the app isn't even good! So sorry about that. I've been trying to go through and delete it from everyone's pages, but it's going to take a while to get to everyone. I deleted the app, so hopefully there won't be any more random posts from me.

Review:
I enjoyed this book very much in comparison to the last book, although it was still more or less meh. Still, I enjoyed watching the MCs together and there was a side romance that was a little funny. Not sure I'd pick another book from this author though.
