Sunday Salon: On the Cozy Side

Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer. Also visit It's Monday, What Are You Reading? hosted by Book Date , and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Reviews..

After four days of rain, today was gloriously sunny and pleasantly cool. I even spent dusk and early evening in the yard, and happily there were no mosquitoes to ruin the evening!

A few new cozy mysteries on the shelf:
On Her Majesty's Frightfully Secret Service by Rhys Bowen, August 1, 2017, Berkley Books

Wrong Side of the Paw by Laurie Cass, July 27, 2017, Berkley

Dressed to Confess by Diane Vallere, August 1, 2017, Berkley

Chime and Punishment: A Clock Shop Mystery by Julianne Holmes, August 1, 2017, Berkley

I am still reading Skeleton God by Eliot Pattison and The Bookshop at Water's End by Patti Callahan Henry and have a few ebooks as well on my reader.

After downsizing by giving many boxes of books to charity and friends, I now have book shelf to spare, thank heavens.

How is your summer?

Those all look very tempting! The Rhys Bowen books have caught my eye for a while, now, and I must read one soon!

Enjoy your week, and I'm glad you had some sun. Giving away books definitely does keep the shelves more appealing.

Found another box to give away! Yes, my shelves look much neater now~

I think that my wife would like The Clock Shop Mystery series. I will send show her the link to it. She is thinking of beginning the Bookmobile Cat Series.

It is very warm here on Long Island this weekend. That is making me happy :)

Harvee said...

Glad it's warm in Long Island. Time for a swim? I miss the ocean! Hope your wife likes both mystery series!

How long will you keep that bookshelf bare?! It's difficult, I think. Yesterday we went to the bookstore and I came home with...nothing! (Proud!)


Harvee said...

The bookshelf is not bare, Deb Nance; it just has more space!
