DEATH OVERDUE By Allison Brook

34507290

The first book in the Haunted Library series. I have read this author before and enjoyed her book. I found this book hard to date as I felt the mystery was not much but I like the ghostly librarian and Smokey Joe. There was a backstory hinted at and felt Carrie Singleton was headed for trouble. Even the supporting characters are well developed and made an impression on me.
In this book, Carrie accepted the department head of events and promotions. At her first event the speaker, retired homicide detective, Al Buckley, dropped over dead. He mentions that he knew who killed Laura Foster 15 years ago. Carrie with the help of the ghostly librarian and Smokey Joe, the library cat investigate the murdered wanting answers for the family. Will she succeed before the killer has a new victim?

RUNNING OUT OF TIME By Suzanne M. Trauth

36007655

A new author for me and I have marked the first two stories in the series to my TBR shelf. I found the main characters well developed. The theater setting did not do much for me. The scenes at the Windjammer restaurant was much better. Until I got the characters straightened out it was slow going but I am glad I did as I feel it was unusual in a cozy. The main character and the Police working more less together.
In this book, Dottie O’Dell is supplying great the intermission of the Eaton Little Theatre. It is dress rehearsal when a bloody body is found in one the setting of the play. Dottie sees Sally, an actress fleeing the area with bloody. Against the Police advice, Dottie decided to help Sally. Dottie going against her boy friend’s, the Police Chief, is trying to help Sally. Dottie takes several turns before she manages to touch base with Sally again.

GOOD AFTERNOON FRIENDS- OCTOBER 7, 2017

THINK POSITIVE HUGS!

 

 

Welcome, it is a cool sunny morning. We have some storms recently but the last few days have been cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon. There is a selection of coffee, ten or cider and cookies and cupcakes. Let us go set on the patio so we can see what is occurring in parking lot.

 

I am out of the rehab for a while now. I have caregivers and home health It seems there is a new stress factor every day. An example: Someone planted the entrance to Tramore. I wanted to take pictures of it before it was damaged by the weather. You would have thought I was trying to hurt myself by the reactions as I was going outside without  a coat. We were out longer than I needed to be if that had let get the pictures. One of my caregivers has been answering yes when I tell her something. Than she did what she wants. I realized it this morning when I went to get my breakfast. I will need caregivers probably the rest of my life. There are some things I can no longer do. I learn a a lot about occupation and physical therapy. I will be having both two times a week. My hip and leg has heal but I still have my UTI and BM problems.
