TE (jeannette-marie) √ Diabetes Awareness: Fatally Frosted
√ Computer Learning: Bad Moon On The Rise - Kindle edition
√ Frugal Fun: Nordic Nights (frugal because it's a free Kindle book)
√ Wedding: Night of the Living Dandelion (characters announce engagement; placeholder in case I can't get through another one by the end of the challenge)
Halloween: Bedeviled Eggs I started this challenge too late.

I won't be able to finish the last October book today (10/31), but I'm looking forward to reading all the Autumn Challenge books. These challenges are a fun way to choose books from my TBR shelf and wish list.

Fatally Frosted (Donut Shop Mystery #2) by Jessica Beck Bad Moon On The Rise (Casey Jones mystery series) by Katy Munger Nordic Nights (The Alix Thorssen Mysteries) by Lise McClendon Night of the Living Dandelion (A Flower Shop Mystery, #11) by Kate Collins Bedeviled Eggs (Cackleberry Club, #3) by Laura Childs

√ Quirky character: Executive Lunch
Water in the title or on the cover: The Scent of Rain and Lightning
√ Someone is falsely accused: Roast Mortem

I don't think I'll be even close to meeting this month's challenge, especially since two of my books haven't yet arrived. I did get a PBS message this morning that Missing Ink has been offered for a trade, so I may get that one on time.

TE (jeannette-marie) I don't see a relevant forum topic on which to post this Savage Chickens Friday the 13th comic, but I did want to share it, especially since funny cozies are some of my favorites.
