Books just read:
As Death Draws Near: A Lady Darby Mystery #5 by Anna Lee Huber, to be released July 5, 2016. A four star read with an atmospheric setting in an abbey in Ireland, nineteenth century. 

Next in line to be read, for a book tour in July:

This has been a slow month for new books at my house, but there are lots of novels around my desk that call for attention!

Keep cool in this sweltering summer!

  1. The Cake Therapist looks pretty good to me. It definitely has an appealing cover anyway :)

    I will have to check out that Lady Darby series. I love historical mysteries.

    Hope you have a great week!

  2. Both The Cake Therapist and The Memory of Lemon have such eye catching covers! I'll be anxious to see your review! I need something different. :)

  3. I didn't get much read this week...only ONE book! But it was a good one.

    The Cake Therapist looks tempting...and delicious. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  4. It's been hot here too, and my reading has slowed down for some reason. I like the sound of that mystery and the Irish abbey... sounds very atmospheric.

  5. Stay cool and enjoy your reading, Harvee. I like these colorful covers.

  6. The cover on Cake Therapist looks so relaxing, hah!

  7. The Ninja's Daughter looks very good. It seems like a mystery that does not follow cliches. I look forward to reading your thoughts on it.

  8. Great picks. I have these on my wishlist. Hope you enjoy them. Happy reading and have a great week.


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
