Glad to be back. I hope all are doing well. Just finished the first book of the year, and in keeping with my usual, it's a "cozy".

Glad to be back. I hope all are doing well. Just finished the first book of the year, and in keeping with my usual, it's a "cozy".

#1 Buried in Books Kate Carlisle
#2 The Heron's Cry Ann Cleaves
#3 A Tourists Guide to Murder V.M. Burns
#4 Murder of a Bookstore Babe Denise Swanson
#5 Lions and Tigers and Murder, Oh My Denise Swanson
These last three books were right on the edge of "I am not going to finish reading this silly thing", but I did.
#6 Murder at the Christmas Cookie Bakeoff Darci Hannah
add this one to the comment about the previous three----really going to have to change my picking out books style
#7 Young Mac of Fort Vancouver Mary Jane Carr
#8 Radar Girls Sara Ackerman
#9 The Bookseller's Secret Michelle Gable
#10 The Midnight Hour Elly Griffiths
#11 On Harrow Hill John Verdon
well, this one certainly doesn't come under the heading of "cozy" Well written. I enjoyed it.

>8 jbegab: How strange were the recipes?

13jbegab
feb. 11, 6:21pm

>12 jfetting: All about what to substitute for unavailable foods. Probably very useful during the war. The various ways to make a substitute for cream or an egg and other things we now think nothing of using. The recipe for the National loaf sounded as if it was not well liked, even if needed.
