Sunday Salon: Traveling Through Books

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week.Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer; Also visit It's Monday: What Are You Reading hosted by Book Journey and Stacking the Shelves at Tynga's Reviews.

My recent armchair travel has taken me from the backlands of Brazil to New Orleans, then to Mississippi, to Scottsdale AZ, and next to Singapore. I've had some good adventures in these places via my recent books!

Some rew cozies will head me further to Victorian London, to Oyster Bay in North Carolina, then to Michigan and Northern California. Can't wait!

Mrs. Jeffries and the Merry GentlemenThe holiday season brings a mix of merriment, mayhem, and murder. And it falls to Inspector Witherspoon—with a significant portion of help from the ever-watchful Mrs. Jeffries—to find the culprit… 

Lethal Letters:  Restaurant owner and aspiring novelist Olivia Limoges is busy planning a delicious menu for Oyster Bay’s biggest soiree of the spring. But she’ll need to serve some justice as well after one resident gets eighty-sixed…

The Chocolate Book Bandit :When it turns out a member of Warner Pier’s library board has been living on borrowed time, Lee is determined to discover who wrote the victim’s final chapter…

A High End Finish:  In the seaside town of Lighthouse Cove in northern California, everyone knows the best man for the job is actually a woman—contractor Shannon Hammer. But while Shannon can do wonders with a power drill and a little elbow grease, she’s about to discover that some problems aren’t so easily fixed....
And back to the Victorian times, but in Manhattan, a new series:
Snow White Red-Handed:  Miss Ophelia Flax is a Victorian actress who knows all about making quick changes and even quicker exits. But to solve a fairy-tale crime in the haunted Black Forest, she’ll need more than a bit of charm…
Where are your current reads taking you?


  1. Armchair traveling can be the best!

  4. You've definitely covered a lot of ground lately... my recent books have been mostly set in NYC!

  5. I like Mrs. Jefffries. I like all your cozies. They look delicious. I'll bet your smiling.

  6. I love that our books can take us everywhere and anywhere!

    Happy Reading!!

  7. Traveling from my home, while sitting on the couch, is my favorite kind! Books (and movies) have taken me to more places than I could have imagined. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, and enjoy your reading/traveling.


  8. I love to travel the world through stories! Looks like your upcoming cozies will fling you across the map also. I want to check out the Kate Carlisle series-- looks like fun to me. Enjoy all!

  9. There goes my book budget. I see some I have to have. At least it's cheaper than flying to all of these places. LOL

  10. That's a great way of looking at it- armchair traveling. I had no idea The Chocolate Book Bandit was set in Michigan- that caught my eye, being a Michigander myself. Hope it's good! And Mrs. Jeffries looks like a good Victorian mystery read...

  11. I love armchair traveling! I've added the Mrs. Jeffries book and the Joanna Carl book to my TBR. I'm really looking forward to the Kate Carlisle book. I've really enjoyed her bibliophile series. Have a great week!

  12. Look at all of those gorgeous covers! I love a good cozy so I will be checking these all out. It looks like you have lots of great reading ahead of you. Enjoy :)

  13. It's good to travel to faraway places with our books. Such is the joy of reading, isn't it?

  14. The Chocolate Book Bandit looks cool :)

    Here's mine:
