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.

Review: Well Read, Then Dead by Terrie Farley Moran

Sassy and Bridgy own Read 'Em and Eat - a cozy cafe and bookstore in Fort Myers Beach, Florida.  Their customers come for the food and the book discussions.  They sit at themed tables (Emily Dickinson, Dr. Seuss  etc.. covered in quotes and fun).  Club members can get vocal and rowdy in their heated discussions.  When one of their members is murdered, her cousin and best friend Augusta doesn't want sympathy - she wants Sassy to find out what happened to Delia!

Rumors of sunken treasure and the engrossing history of the Ten Thousand Islands add complexity to the investigation.

I really enjoyed the setting and colorful characters in the story. I would love a cafe like that to hang out in and fun people to talk books with in such a place.
