Hi Connie,

I've only read one of your series and for some reason that's not the one that is calling to me. I've decided to go with the tattoo shop series for you. Don't know why but it was calling to me. Happy Reading!

Thanks Kristina. I had a feeling that would be my pair for June. I have had book 1 in the TBR forever. Finally picked up book 2 and 3 so I could use it for this challenge. I also have book 3, Of Spice and Men.

I'd never heard of it, but it's on my TBR list now. You're likely to see it on my list for a future Serial Reader Challenge. Let me know how you like it, if you get the chance!

Hi, Jeanne,

I apologize for the delay in choosing your books. It's my husband's birthday, and we were out celebrating.

You have a lot of good choices, and I was torn between the Puzzle Lady mysteries (which I have been thinking about reading) and the Mainely Needlepoint mysteries, I will select the Mainely Needlepoint mysteries this time. I finished "Thread and Gone" a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy the books, too!

Thank you, Susan! I very much enjoyed the first book in the Dangerous Type series and look forward to reading the next two.

And Happy Victoria Day to you as well.
