Sunday Salon: A Working Weekend

We had planned a getaway this weekend but then decided to stay home and fix up house - painting and decluttering in prep for visitors later this summer. It's working out okay and good to get things done, though I'd rather be at the beach! Happy Fourth!

Two new cozies:

Spells and Scones: Magical Bakery Mystery #6 by Bailey Cates, to be released July 26, 2016, NAL
There's a body in the bookshop in this latest novel from theNew York Times bestselling author of the Magical Bakery mysteries...

A Grave Prediction: Psychic Eye Mystery #14 by Victoria Laurie, to be released July 26, 2016,
Abby has to prepare herself for one steep uphill battle when she’s sent to San Diego to help train FBI officers to use their intuition. I am looking forward to reading this.

I have two boxes of books to give away next week. My shelves are full and I need the space! What a sad dilemma! What are you up to this holiday weekend! Enjoy the fireworks!

  1. We've been working around the house this weekend, too. It will ultimately be rewarding, but it is hard to see photos of people at the beach, picnicking, etc. while we work! LOL


  2. Happy holiday weekend! It occurs to me that, though I'm in the UK, 4 July may well be why I heard fireworks near my house last night. Hope they had a good party!

  3. These both look very tempting...and I love scones!

    Enjoy...and it feels good to declutter, doesn't it? Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  4. Sorry you weren't able to get away for the weekend but it sounds like you are getting a lot accomplished. I hope you have a great 4th of July!

    The cozy mystery series are new to me but the one with scones looks particularly tempting :)

  5. I like both books. Have fun decluttering.

  6. Harvee, enjoy your new cozies. It is good to get things done around the house (although the chores can be endless). Have a safe and happy 4th!

  7. A book giveaway is a good way to tidy up your bookshelves! I try to donate some books to our library book sale periodically so I don't get completely overwhelmed.

    Have a great week!

  8. We should be cleaning and painting our new (to us) house, but we aren't. We're going to my oldest son's house for a cookout and get in the pool.

  9. Happy 4th!! Yay for new cozys!!

  10. Happy 4th to you as well. I read all of the other Magical bakery series and I am looking forward to reading the new Spells and Scones book. A Grave Prediction looks like a good one as well. Enjoy them. Have a great week.

  11. They both sound like great reads, plus I really love their covers ^_^

    Oh my god, it's Monday!
