Pam's Library Trip

Good Morning Readers, authors, friends and family,

I am a reader who uses my library quite often and they are pretty resourceful. Yesterday I received a notice that a library book was almost due in a few days. Knowing that the rainy season is upon us and my is under the weather I decided to have my husband drive me up there in his truck yesterday evening. I returned said book in plenty of time with no fine.

Now it was mentioned to me they had some new books in and sure enough they did so my trip consisted of checking these books out and I will let you know which how I like them.

1. the REBELLION of MISS LUCY ANN LOBDELL by WILLIAM KLABER while this book is penned under fiction it is my understanding that she is a person who made remarkable strides in her time. This the author's accounting and fiction story of a very real woman. So I couldn't resist bringing it home in large type hardback.

2. I brought home MRS. JEFFRIES AND THE ONE WHO GOT AWAY by  EMILY BRIGHTWELL this one is in paperback. I
always enjoy historical fiction and this series is a comfort series for me to read on dark and stormy days.

3. Lastly I come to The GHOST and MRS. MEWER by KRISTA DAVIS this one is a pet friendly getaway taking place in Wagtail, Virginia and it during a Halloween theme
but premise is that a TV series in development, APPARITION APPREHENDERS are at Wagtail to investigate supernatural local legends. It's a ghosts hunters dream and a pet friendly good time until a real murder happens.

So this was my library trip and I left a couple of new books for others. :) I already had a book Terri sent me to read and some homework to do over another book that Nancy Cohen wrote about writing cozy books. So I am set for this and maybe longer if I get any books in to review. I love reviewing mysteries.

Anyway have a great reading week.

Keep it cozy,

Upside Down Post:

Yurn your frown upside down into a smile as this post is for those who do not enjoy the family gatherings at Christmas. You know who you are and why but today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun.

This is a "Would you rather" reply when someone asks what you would rather do get through the holidays than spend it with family?

1. I'd rather drop a house on my sister.

2. Have a root canal

3. Eat fruitcake even the store bought kind.

4. Have my neighbor tell me about her colon in great detail

5. Dust

6. Watch my cat chase and kill a mouse

7. Hear the neighbor's dogs barking all night long.

8. Shovel snow

9. Open my prezzies and discover everyone sent me clothes two sizes too small. What is family for but to get the sizes wrong even after they call and ask.

10. I'd rather read a good murder mystery set at Christmas this would make it a killer holiday for me.

Okay you all come up with your own funny list and I can't wait to see what you have. Oh one…

An Interview with Frances Brody

MM: Frances, give us the back story on how and when you became an author?
I started by telling stories. I’d walk home from school with a friend and spin some tale that would last till the parting of our ways at the corner shop. In my twenties, I wrote stories that were published in magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio. I then wrote radio and theatre plays and scripts for television. My first novel was based on stories told to me by my mother.
MM: Tell us about what you are currently writing and what has been released?
I’m editing the eighth Kate Shackleton novel, Death at the Seaside. My setting is Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Whitby is where Bram Stoker has Count Dracula land in the Russian ship Demeter in the shape of a black dog. Dracula doesn’t appear in my story. But if he did, Kate Shackleton and her trusty assistants, Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, would deal with him.My latest release in the US is Kate Shackleton #5, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In the UK, it’s #7, A Death in the…

Review - Yellow as Legal Pads by Fran Stewart

Biscuit and Bob are on their honeymoon when Bob tries to help someone dying with resuscitation efforts that leave him poisoned and in ICU.

The story time hops a lot and introduces a lot of characters and isn't really your typical amateur sleuth asking questions all over town.

It is a series of pieces out of the life of the Holvers family and events that led to the current situation she and Bob are in.

It is interesting and complex at times but satisfying as the pieces come together.

I saw several reviews where the number of characters and time hopping frustrated readers and I admit, I had to pause a few times to make sure I was in tune to everything going on, but I thought it was fun a non-traditional which was a bit refreshing.
