Today, I Am taking part on in WWW’s Wednesdays hosted by

What did you just finished?

What will read next?



This cozy mystery is book #2 in the Five Ingredients series. I read the 4th book, THE TELL-TAKE TARTE some time ago and enjoyed it. I found my library has a copy for the #2 book and decided to read it. The MC, Val Densiton, is living with her Grandfather. He secretly used her recipes to enter a recipe contest. The prize was a job as the paper food columnist. Val’s Grandfather hosted a dinner party where one of Lyndhurst became sick and later died. Val actually did the cooking, but the guests thought her Grandfather did it.



I have always enjoyed the Savannah Reid adventures. In the 15 book, we find Savannah helping Dirk worked the murder of the wife of a well-known wellness doctor. The secrets that have been hidden will shock you. I like the southern humor.


Want to relax, start a Meg Lanslow’s book with its offbeat actors. Meg is helping her Grandmother to open a Craft Center. She is fighting both vandalism and murder. Her Grandfather has only one thought in mind an unusual and rare gull.


Two ARCs from Henery Press


The #4 book finds Eli Marks and his Uncle involve in a murder in London that is associate with an Age-old Magician Society.


An Actress and part-time PI, Cindy’s current job finds her involved in the the death of one the actors in the show, Wizard. It is the #5 book in the series.

  1. Interesting choices as always.

  2. Scam Chowder looks like fun. Enjoy your books, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. I don’t know these I’m afraid but I really like the look of The Phantom of Oz. Do you have to read the previous books in the series or can you just jump in anywhere?

    • Any series is better read from the first book. It is great to watch the characters grow and how an author develops. I wouldn’t want to start Cindy Bell with that book. There are better authors to try. I was checking my NetGalley feed for one with a new book. Betty Hectman is usually good. There is one of her crochet series on now. My favorite publishers are Henery Press, Kensington Books, and Severn Books. Crooked Lane Press, Poison Pen Press are fast becoming favorite. Berkeley has good ones but they don’t like me. I seldom get one from them. There are several good independent autgors. I like Elaine Orr, Alice Duncan and Jinx Schwartz. The ebooks are around $5.00 or under. Often free. A new one is Janice R Richardson. I like very much. I do jump in anywhere but I understand the genera. Some I have gone back and brought the early books for the back story.

      • You can occasionally start series part way through but agree they’re almost always best starting from the beginning. Thanks for the recommendations. I’ll certainly be looking out for them. I’m in the UK so it’s not always possible to get books from some of the US publishers.

      • Good luck on getting the books you want. HENERY PRESS has on PAJAMA GAME by Diane Vallere that is still on NetGalley. It should be good. I have only found one series on HENERY PRESS that I didn’t like. It is not offering the 4 book.

    • I just had a thought Diane Balls has one called PAJAMA GAME. It looks like a start of a new series. I immediately requested it as her Madison Night series is outstanding. I see it on the most requested list. It should be good. Released date is in February.

    As you said with mine, these are all new to me! I like the sound of many of them, particularly The Linking Rings and Gone Gull! Have a great reading week and thanks for checking our my WWW post https://snazzybooks.com/2017/12/13/www-wednesday-13-december-2017/

    • Thanks for the comments and follow. Donna Andrews books are all have a link to birds. Each book is a complete story, but by starting with an early book allows you to understand the back story. Some authors are better handling this than others I mention Meg Grandparents. They were introduced in several books
