SHOT IN THE DARK By Cleo Coyle

I don’t usually ask for a book after it has been released as I enjoy this group of stories based on a coffee shop in New York City. I requested the #17 volume and was delighted to receive it. Clare is planning her wedding but the venue has become a problem because so many want to attend. Most large areas are already booked and cost prohibits other. A new dating app has the name The Village Blend as the hot spot to meet a date. As a result, the Village Blend is busy as gunshots are heard in the 17th book. The body of a customer is found floating in the river. Clare feels these two events are connected and with the help of her ex-husband sets out to prove it. Does success come before Matt loses his life? I highly recommend this book and series. Coffee Recipes and tips are included.

MEOW FOR MURDER By Susan O Johnston


I decided to re-read this book as it has been a few years since I read this series. I like very much and still. I do remember I had a problem finding the books to read. I read them out of order so I enjoyed learning about pet legal problems and why to moderate them which I support. Problems experienced by seniors is another interest of mind. About the series the covers are all very attractive and invite you into the series. This is true of MEOW FOR MURDER, there are two cute Bengal cats on the cover. I know the breed and facts about the Bengal Cat were true at the time of writing. Our Bengal hunting was his main purpose in life. You did not interrupt him when he was hunting. He knew who belong where he lives and let’s us about a stranger like Cherise and Carnie nor was he afraid any dogs. Kendra had lawyer’s suspended in a earlier book. To support herself She became a Pet Sitter.  Kendra has her lawyer’s licence back in this book. She continued both jobs in this book. The balance of the book Cover her romantic affair with Jeff. His ex-wife, Amanda is being stalk by Leon, a serial stalker. Kendra has silly contract with Amanda and becomes involved. Will Kendra clear Amanda of the charged of murder? I recommend this book and series.

This series keeps getting better with each book and #7 continued in the same vein. It is essentially a lock room story as Amy and Kim are snowbound with a group of strangers and several of them are found murder. Amy ex-boyfriend asked her to have dinner with and his fiancee telling her there are ducks nearby his isolated house that appears ill. Amy and Kim accepted to check out the ducks. While at dinner an unexpected snow storm beginning stranding the group for a couple of days. The first night one of the group is stabbed to death and a woman disappears. Beware of the Duck Decoys that are in every room. There is a major twist in the book.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and series. It has become a must-read story.

BOOKS FROM MY TBD LIST PURCHASED RECENTLY

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!

It has been brought to my attention that I have been forgetting some of my special authors that I enjoyed and had difficulty finding as they were not available on my library and used bookstores. I knew where they were in every city I lived this included 15 years we travel in an RV all on the Western Coast of the United States. First Links and Throwback Thursday will help with that. Since I can no longer read print books and that includes large print. I no longer have access to the books. It took my husband and myself about 4 years to read our books at the Meridian Library. I can’t say enough about this library. They have coming been once a week bringing requested books to this retirement home. They taught both my husband and myself to used an e-book.  The only reason I don’t get  more ebooks from them is because NetGalley has been so good me. I do get books I can not afford when they show up on Overdrive. I am using Overdrive for my NetGalley because Amazon will no longer since their books too me. Against my better judgement I have purchased the following books from Amazon, since this started. If there are, no covers I can’t access one. Send me an email address and I will tell my experience with Amazon and Google. Nook will not put my reviews on their site. I do not know why. While at it I will say I have no preference to buying a book at any location. If you follow my blog you know I do not recommend books from any source. When I know a special book from one of my must authors I put it on my blog but say one of other. All are good. I am 86 year old, my husband same age. Our Income Social Security. We have caregivers and there a major problem that needs corrections. We have outlive close relatives. Amazon, Google, Apple, Brooks And Noble, Facebook, Social medis, Yahoo have all forgotten what has made them the millions. THE CUSTOMER OUR DESIRES ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THEIR LISTS. IT started when Microsoft got a monopoly on Windows. I actually tried to buy a computer without Windows I couldn’t. I had to buy the computer with and put OS2 on it. I have been fighting this by self and it need to be said. I was politely I don’t own the books I brought from Amazon.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE BOOKS AND AUTHORS

We owned a Bengal Cat for 15 year and his heart gave out . My heart breaks every time I read about a Bengal needing home know we can’t offer because of age and health issues. I limit myself to clean mysteries I can no longer read suspense or thrillers. Nancy Bush is one like but she is into suspense the last I almost finished. I would recommend her for suspense. I required a book I can read on ebook or Overdrive and I accept very few from authors. Most don’t want honest opinion and NetGalley keeps busy. They have a so helpful with when I was not off of the internet and I thought my blog was dead. Thank to all have been helpful cannot tell how much has meant to me.

I am not sure to be sent but it needs to be said. Don’t to contract Amazon they have for help requested I even had caregiver called as they can’t do any but phone. I am using their kindle as I no choice it is still warranty but need to use. Amazon can bring what they remove when I brought new Kindle see reports bruise they buried them.

My review:

A light and relaxing read, the first book, in a new series. The characters are developed and will hold your attention 

Daisy Swanson, a widow, and her Aunt Iris have open a tea shop. Daisy set into her hometown after the death of her husband and open the tea shop to order to support herself and her daughters. Aunt Iris is dating a wealthy gentleman who is not yet divorced. Aunt Iris finds her gentleman friend dead in the garden of the tea shop. Aunt Iris is the leading suspect in the murder. Daisy begins to explore the circumstances surrounding the death. Meanwhile, her youngest daughter, who was adopted is looking for her birth Mother. Will Daisy find the answers to both questions? I recommend this book. Recipes are included.
