Enjoy some Mayhem & Magic!
Our blog is meant to evoke fun with the magic of myths, folklore, movies and the mayhem of murder and madness. We have to keep it interesting so if you like different genres of movies and books then you're at the right blog. Our authors are a wide range of experts and our readers know what is top of the line in their favorite genres. Sometimes we post recipes that might be fun to try if a culinary author has one in her book that we think is especially yummy or one that Terri and I have created and want to share with you. Enjoy Guest Blogger Alice Duncan's monthly muse on her books and writing mysteries.
Plus you won't want to miss our book reviews, author interviews or our guest bloggers. So grab your favorite beverage then join us for some magic and mayhem! The good news is that you don't have to leave the house or your comfy chair. We have something for everyone's taste and every month we have a different topic for our bloggers: ones we feel that might be useful in your own writing and reader points of view. Not to mention, life in general. So join us and be sure to have a notebook handy as your to-be-read pile will grow as you add books, recipes, movies and t.v. series you won't want to miss. Not to mention folktales, myths or ideas you may wish to explore. Be careful what you wish for because on mayhemandmagic2 you just might find it.

The Subject is Murder
The SUBJECT IS MURDER:
Today suppose you tell us how you like your murder served to you between the pages of a book, on the small screen or the big screen.
Is strangulation your cup of coffee? Is poison your cup of tea? What about a good old fashioned stabbing, maybe you like your murder to end with a souffle gone bad or does your taste of choice end with a big bang?
Here are some movies and books that satisfy my taste for murder.
1. WHOSE KILLING THE GREAT CHEFS OF EUROPE?
2. MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS
3. MIDNIGHT LACE
4. STRANGERS ON A TRAIN
6. MURDER IS EASY
7. HOSTILE MAKEOVER
9. PRESUMED INNOCENT
10. DEATH TRAP
11. The PELICAN BRIEF
Now these are all good movies and I love the ones with a twist ending. Moving on to books here are a few that I thought had clever plots.
1. THREE BEDROOMS ONE CORPSE by Charlaine Harris.
2. FATAL FIXER UPPER by Sarah Graves
3. The BODY IN THE IVY by Katherine Hall Page
4. POISONED PINS by Joan Hess
5. CRY WOLF by Tami Hoag
6. THIS OLD MURDER by Valerie Wolzien
7. MURDER BETWEEN the COVERS by Elaine Viets
8. DEAD MAN'S ISLAND by Carolyn G. Hart
9. DEADLY VALENTINE by Carolyn Hart
10. NEEDLED TO DEATH by Maggie Sefton
I also really like culinary mysteries. You never know what will be served and they always have great recipes that you can try after satisfying your taste for murder. Nothing goes with murder like food except maybe a good bookstore mystery, a library mystery or an historical mystery. Needless to say when it comes to murder everyone's palette is different but it's great we can sample all types......
Until next time........
