  1. hahaha Roast Mortem, what an awesome title! Must get my hands on Debbie’s new Rose Harbor novel, I enjoyed the first one. Have a great week, enjoy your lovely warm weather and happy reading 🙂

    All three look good – I have a few of the Coffeehouse mystery books but haven’t read them yet

    Have a great week!

  3. I went back and read your past week’s reviews. Thanks for your impression of The Glass Wives, I am on the fence about picking that up. I also liked your Happy Accidents review–Ms. Lynch seems like a positive person and I like memoirs, so maybe I will add that one. Chelsea Cain (in my opinion only) is too creepy for me. I like mysteries/suspense, but her gore factor is a bit too high for myself. Will check to see your review when it’s written. I read the first Coffeehouse Mystery. Don’t know if you are reading that out of order, but it seemed like a good start to a series. And Debbie Macomber will be a good change of pace after Chelsea Cain 🙂 Enjoy your week reading!


    1. I haven’t read the previous books in the Coffeehouse Mystery, and while I don’t usually like to read out of order, for some reason I chose to ignore that…lol.

      The same thing with the Debbie Macomber book.

      Yes, I have to be in the mood for creepy stories…Chelsea Cain has just enough without exceeding my tolerance for it. But I wouldn’t be able to read those books every week.

      Thanks for stopping by, Rita, and enjoy your week.


  4. Quite the fun and eclectic list of books upcoming for you! And I’m excited to go back and read some of your reviews from the last week. Thanks for stopping by my blog!


  5. I admire the amount of work you do on your blog and how many posts you place!
    And very divers books this week, although Chelsea Cain is a bit too gory for me (tried one, but that was enough)

    Have a great week & kind regards,


    1. Me, too, Mardel….and until I read her book, I had forgotten some of the movies she’d been in. She so inhabits her roles. Like as Julia Childs’ sister in Julie & Julia.

      Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your week.


  6. You’ve got our summer heat! We are having nice, moderate temperatures here in the Great Lakes region. Good for people but my veggie garden is growing very slow this year. I hope I have a tomato by September!

    Oh, books, right. 🙂 Roast Mortem… love that title.


    1. We actually had a very mild spring…usually we get the heat as early as late April, but got a reprieve this year. So I guess I shouldn’t complain!

      I like the sound of Roast Mortem, too. Thanks for visiting, Leslie, and enjoy your week.
