♦It can be a new or an on-going series.

♦Post the name of the series and the covers of at least two books that you have not read.

♦There must be at least two unread books in the series. No re-reads allowed.

♦You may re-post a series chosen before as long as there are at least two unread books.

♦Post series now through June 20th.

♦Pairs will be posted on June 21st.

♦Select a series for your partner between June 21st and 25th...sooner is better

♦Next month, read two (or more) books from the series selected for you.

New to the challenge? The thread for challenge guidelines and questions is here

I do not know any of those series. The Candy Shop Mysteries look good to me. That series is my pick for you for July. Happy reading

Jess,

I've only read two of your series and I've got to go with Her Royal Spyness for you. I don't think I'm as far into it as you are but I always enjoy it when I read it. Happy Reading!

Hi, Marianne! I'm not familiar with any of your series, but the Black Cat Cafe looks like fun so that's my pick for you. Added them to my TBR pile, too! Happy reading!

Connie N. | 491 comments Cynthia, I'm going to agree with your Mom's recommendation and will choose:

Chet and Bernie Mystery series by Spenser Quinn

MY recommendation is to listen to the audiobooks, if you're into that sort of thing. Jim Frangione does a great Chet voice. In any case, the whole series is lots of fun and very light-hearted.

Sharon PLBo (sharonlpb) | 234 comments Cindy, you picked great series. I haven't read a Goldie Bear story in a while though. So I'm picking them for you. Have you tried any of her recipes? I've made a couple and liked them.

Danielle (rainydayreadsx3) | 99 comments Hi Barbara, it is always fun starting a new series! It was a really hard choice between the TJ Jensen Paradise Lake Mysteries and the Writer's Apprentice Mysteries. They both sound wonderful, but I am going to choose the TJ Jensen/Paradise Lake books for you because they sound like a fun read! Hope you enjoy them.

Thank you Liz - it will be fun to get back to them! Eeeep! they are no longer on kindle in the UK and much as I like them I am NOT paying £55 ($75) upwards for the paperbacks!

Could you possibly pick something else for me Liz (looks sheepish)

Oh no!! That sucks. Of course I can choose another one. How about the Patrice Greenwood’s tea shop series?

The Danger Cove books are a lot of fun. Danger Cove, as well as Aloha Lagoon also published by Gemma Halliday's publishing company are shared universe series. Visits to either place are a joy to read. Although why tourists would visit either place given the murder rate is puzzling. Same holds true of Cabot Cove home of famed author J.B. Fletcher.
