Hot salsa from Bandito Burrito is just perfect.
My wife, Karen Allen, is running out of mystery books. You never want the avid book reader in your life to run out of books. Never fear, we have found a great mystery book store called the Book Sleuth, but it is in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Karen is in luck, because I travel to Colorado Springs on a regular basis.
Helen C. Randal is the owner, but I will have to confess that Karen and I thought she was dead the first time we walked into the store. She was slumped over and the book she was reading had fallen out of her hand. Given a door bell rang as we entered, we argued for few minutes about who was going to check her vital signs. This went on for a few minutes more, but we soon decided that we would make a large noise, which I am thankful to say she was not dead.
Lyman Mark manages the store for Helen. Lyman must have read very book in the store. You can barely describe a book that you are looking to purchase and Lyman will be able to put his hand right onto it.
I was in the mood for food and reading so I picked up “To Catch A Cook” by Joanne Pence. Joanne Pence writes a series that has food as a part of the mystery. “To Catch A Cook” is a part of the “Angie Amalfi Mystery” series.
You can even get some of recipes for the food in the books at the writer’s web site.
My trip to Colorado Springs allowed be to finish reading Dr. Nightingale Enters the Bear Cave.
It was a good read. Didi’s adventure into the woods leads to murder and mystery.
I have finally finished Bubbles In Trouble. This book was a little overboard for me. It had many funny parts to keep me going.
Bubbles Yablonsky's friend Janice does a no show on her own wedding. Janice's uncle is found dead. Bubbles goes undercover as Amish widow to find Janice and determine who killed Janice's uncle.
Well, I finally sat down and finished this book. The quality of this book was similar to Lydia Adamson's Dr. Nightingale Races the Outlaw Colt that was reviewed here, but this book's story line had more depth. Adamson's style of jumping between scenes worked well given this story take place in multiple locations.
In this book, we find Dr. Nightingale looking into racehorses as a way to expand her shrinking vet pracitice due the declining dairy business in Hillsbrook in Dutchess County, New York.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. It is a good light read.
Well, I haven't had a chance to get back to reading “Dr. Nightingale Seeks Greener Pastures” by Lydia Adamson. I have been too busy, but I will get back to it soon.
Dr. Nightingale: Seeks Greener Pastures is my second book in the A Deirdre Quinn Nightingale Mystery series. These books are short reads so I hope provide a quick review in the day or two.
