Currently,  "I have a Secret"  by Cheryl Bradshaw.  Its this woman's class reunion and the class goes on a cruise.  While on cruise one of the classmates is killed.  She is a PI and is now trying to find out who done it.   Very good so far.  I love her books.   And yes, I'm actually reading this one!  Its only 181 pages long.   Thumbup



Tracy,  yours sounds good too!  Thumbup

I just finished "The Witch of Painted Sorrows" by M.J. Rose and couldn't wait to get to the library to get the second one. She has written lots of books. This series is called, "The Daughters of La Lune."

I am reading a western series by b.n. Rundell. DH and I are both enjoying them. The author started writing at 71, when he retired from being a preacher. Unlike most westerns, his show few errors.

I was right (pretty much) about the book I was reading, but there was a twist. Yay! I'll continue the series, for sure.

Then I went on to 'On What Grounds' by Cleo Coyle. I recall that I read this in paperback many years ago, and liked it. It seems though that my patience for over-description and extraneous information has lessened over the years, and I ended up abandoning the book after a day.

Now it's 'Peach Pies and Alibis' by Ellery Adams. This is #2 in a series. I'm not as enamoured with this one as I was the first, but it's not irritating me so I'll probably make it through. If it goes too far into feuds and intrigue, I'll probably not continue the series.

I enjoyed Eucalyptus, it was quirky, patience paid off in letting it get going, it has a definate rhythm that is easy to read once you get the hang of it. Next I have "Its raining in Mango" by Thea Astley, another Aussie story

I am reading the new Dorothea Benton Frank, By Invitation Only. I love her books, they all take place in the Lowcountry of the Carolinas and have spirited women stories. It's a total summer beach read.
I am wanting to reread Outlander but have too much to get done outside and if I go down that road, Nothing will Get Done.

I swapped across to The Broken Shore, another Australian novel - felt like a change from quirky to mystery

The Broken Shore (Broken Shore #1)
by Peter Temple

Broken by his last case, homicide detective Joe Cashin has fled the city and returned to his hometown to run its one-man police station while his wounds heal and the nightmares fade. He lives a quiet life with his two dogs in the tumbledown wreck his family home has become. It's a peaceful existence - ideal for the rehabilitating man. But his recovery is rudely interrupted by a brutal attack on Charles Bourgoyne, a prominent member of the local community. Suspicion falls on three young men from the local Aboriginal community. But Cashin's not so sure and as the case unfolds amid simmering corruption and prejudice, he finds himself holding on to something that it might be better to let go

I just started reading Stitched Together - Stories for the quilter's soul. It was a birthday present from Anita! I like what I have read so far!

Native - Art & Design with Australian Native Plants - its a wonderful book, i will be buying a copy for sure. Also have some cook books mum bought and loaned me to look through and a Landscape magazine, its a British magazine she subscribes to. We really enjoy all the articles in them, you can read them from cover to cover. Here is a link to its website, there are clickable tabs and articles on art, craft, garden, recipes etc to explore

Landscape Magazine

I buy this one, it comes out every 2mnths, only publication/magazine I buy anymore, its got recipes and such to explore on the website too

Landlove Magazine

Well, Landlove just melted my heart with the picture of a yellow lab puppy on the cover. Pic looks just like Haley as a puppy. She's 11 now, but I still see that cute little puppy in her. Mind you, I'm happy she's beyond that age. Those puppy years are tough with labs!

Jill, did Haley get enough brain food as a puppy? lol! Pretty sure Molly did not. Not sure she has a brain to feed. lmao

Recipe looks good Helen. I always look to see if HEB has any marked down kebabs. They are ready to put on the grill and make a great meal. But they taste better when you get for half off!

Geez, I haven't read in so long. cry2

Just finished, "Love and Ruin" by Paula McClain. A Hemingway story about his third wife, Marty, the journalist. Lots of war detail and culture too. Loved it.
