#A HOUSE DIVIDED by Jonathan F. Putnam

PEACE


I saw this book and felt that it would be nice to learn more about Lincoln's early life. This book has been researched and while it is Historical fiction I learn a good amount about life in the Midwest. The author is new to me and I plan on reading the early books in the series.

The 4th episode of the Lincoln and Speed mysteries finds in 1839 that Springfield is in a turmoil over the fact that the state bank has no hard currency and the work on the canal has stopped and has hit the workers hard sending many into poverty. 
Henry Trailer accuses his brothers William and Archibald of killing Fynn Fisher. Archibald saved Joshua Speed's life during the ice storm and convinces Lincoln to get involved in the case. The outcome of the case is impressive. Speed and Lincoln are both attractive to a new woman, Mary Todd in town. There a unique bank robbery and a chase of the felons that will capture will mind. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.

The Sugar and Spice Publishing company is preparing a community cookbook for the St. Ignatius Crack of Dawn Breakfast Club in the second book. Gossip is running as Nick Marchant has returned to town cause problems during high school days, after graduating he left and had not returned. The cookbook has problems and the MURDER of the liaison connection to the Breakfast Club is found dead and apparently killed. Sugar and her partner, Spice begin to look into the affair so the cookbook comes out in time. There is information on taking photos and publishing that was of interest. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
Recipes are included!

#PEACH COBBERED by Anna Gerard

PEACE


The first book in the Georgia B&B mysteries is a humorous and fun read with a couple of quirky characters. It is written by Anna Gerard who writes the Black Cat Bookshop mysteries under the name of Ali Brandon. I was surprised when I realize the animal character is a black and white Australian shepherd instead of a cat. 
Nina Fleet, a recent divorcee feel in love with Victorian House located in Cymbeline, GA and brought the same day it came on the market. A short time later she looked out the windowless a man dressed as a penguin. Talking through the screen door she learned his name is Harry Westover and plans to use claiming his Great-Aunt plan to leave him the house. The nuns of the Sisters of Perpetual Poverty are being forced out of their Convent. Because real estate developer Gregory Bainbridge plans on turning the grounds into a golf course. The nuns become the first guests of the B&B. Gregory is found MURDERED wearing the Penguin suit. Harry becomes a 'person of interest' in the killing. Nina must work fast before Harry joins Gregory in death. I highly recommend this book.
