ROYALLY DEAD by Greta McKennan

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!

History was a favorite subject in school and I have thoroughly enjoyed this series as I learned about subjects that I didn’t know before. This one did not disappoint as it taught a lot about Scotland. I enjoyed the of the different kilt, the history of the town, the best selling author, the information wedding dress, Scottish events including the story of Bonnie Prince Charles, and the two romances. This is the best book in the series. 

 The Highland games have come to Laurel Springs. Daria has rented a booth with another artist. She has many small items to sell. A popular one was the bow ties in the various clan plaids. All is fine until one of the athletes collapses while doing exercise in the game. He was disliked by many and it was determined he was poison. Police questioned those and Aileen refused to answer questions about an acquaintance with the victim there are several witnesses when Aileen attempted to hit the victim with her guitar. The police arrested Aileen as a person of interest. Daria starts to investigate to free Aileen from jail will she succeed? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and series.

#THE DOORBELL RANG by Rex Stout

PEACE BE KIND Think Positive!

I have read Nero Wolf’s books several times. This book is the 41st book in the series. It is the second favorite book of all time. The other is Helen MacInnes’ REST AND BE THANKFUL.

A woman sent 10,000 books about the FBI to many leaders as governors and police officials. The FBI is now harassing her, family, friends, and employees. She wants Wolf to stop the harassment. She offers him a $100,000 retainer and all expenses plus he can name his own fee in any amount he wishes. How Wolf goes about it is intriguing. Was wolf successful? What are Archie’s feelings? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND series.
