I'm a bit the same Kerri - but having read Melanie Casey's first (AA and police procedural) - Hindsight - and loving it, I bought the next two in the series. If you read the blurb of the first, you'll see where it comes from. I'm guessing there are lots (especially cozies) but this is my choice :)

So...about the GIFT option...my mother gave me an Amazon gift card. Can I use a book selected from Amazon in that space if I pay for it with the gift card?

Well on the book's home page, one of the shelves is Mystery. And even though it doesn't have a question mark in the title, it's still asking the question :) So, I would say yes, it'll be fine. Make sure you let us know if YOU think it's mysterious enough once you've read it won't you ;)

Thanks, Brenda. I thought using her gift card would be appropriate as she used to be a big reader, too. And, prior to her dementia, books were something we talked about. Oh, by the way, she is 95, nearly 96 (January)!
