d I chalk it up to my own lack of attention span because this wasn’t a bad book by any means. I love the series (I want Ivan to be my BFF and make me waffles every day. I can dream, right? I believe fictional waffles don’t have any carbs or calories, so I can eat them all day long.) and it was a great plot Continue reading Of Spice and Men (Pancake House Mystery #3)
Fatal Brushstroke was our Book Club pick for January and I was really looking forward to it! I read #4 last October and was looking forward into starting the series from the beginning and I wasn’t disappointed Continue reading Fatal Brushstroke (Aurora Anderson #1)
I picked this one up on Netgalley because like everyone else, I’m obsessed with the idea of a grilled cheese restaurant. This one was a great start to a new series Continue reading Up to No Gouda (Grilled Cheese Mysteries #1)
There were only 2 books in the Inspector Guy Northeast series, which is a shame, I would’ve liked to know more about Inspector Guy Northeast; a likeable guy, part Beaton’s Hamish and part Poirot, he’s portrayed as being smarter and more savvy than his superiors, and yet is frequently ridiculed and admonished as not being up to the task, which he takes in stride as he works to close the case.

On of my Goodreads friends added this to their TBR and I went….OooooOOOooooo gotta have it. I love a good ghost story and I enjoyed the 17 in this book and wish there was more.

Someone on r/CozyMystery was looking for a recap of this book because it had been awhile since she read it and she just got the second book in the series. It looked super cute, so I picked it up and read it to give her a recap. Continue reading Dead As a Door Knocker (House Flipper Mystery #1)
It’s Cozy Mystery Book Bingo time and this year’s theme is British cozy mysteries. I picked up this one for the Beautiful English Gardens square because no one does gardens better than Pru Parke. Continue reading Bittersweet Herbs (Potting Shed Mystery #8)
So, one of my friends on the Cozy Mystery discord mentioned she had just finished playing The ABC Murder video game and saw it was only $1.49 on Steam so I snapped it up and played for hours. Absolutely loved it and it gave me the idea to read the Poirot series from the beginning, which meshed well with book bingo. Woo! Continue reading The Mysterious Affair at Styles (Hercule Poirot #1)

Been a busy year for cozy mysteries! I set my reading goal of 50 books in January, but by August, I had to raise it to 85 and then to 95. I have one more book to finish today, meeting my 95 book goal. According to Goodreads’s Year in Books, I’ve read almost 20,000 words.
