Girl in the Moonlight by Charles Dubow, a contemporary novel about a young man and his obsession over time with a tantalizing girl who refuses to commit to a relationship with any of her lovers. Cesca changes over time in the book, from a frivolous girl to one who finds more meaning in her life.
This historical mystery novel I will be reading for a TLC book tour in July:

I've just finished reading a winery cozy mystery set in northern California, which I gave a thumbs up for characters, setting, and plot:
Ripe for Murder: Cypress Cove Mystery #2 by Carlene O'Neil, published March 1, 2016.
Penny Lively loves running her family’s winery. When she’s approached to invest in a new train line through wine country, Penny and her winery manager, Connor, hightail it to a lavish resort to hear the details. And murder ensues....
I have a similar mystery on my shelves, this one set in a small olive plantation in Georgia!
One Foot in the Grove by Kelly Lane is the first in the series set in the Knox family's olive farm. Published in January 2016.
Setting in a cozy is key, don't you think? Not to mention clever titles and eye-catching covers. What are you reading this week?
