Just like the first, this was a hilarious cozy mystery with charming characters, perfect for the fall. I'm definitely picking up the next one for winter!

A fun cozy mystery! A woman returns to her hometown and people keep turning up dead. She wants to help investigate, to the disappointment of the sheriff, her maybe-boyfriend. However, no actual pumpkins are picked in this book 🎃

Wow, @JoScho - you are amazing!! Thank you for the too generous but incredibly fun box! All the books seem like perfect choices to nudge me outside my spooky-novice box (even if just reading the blurbs on the Peter Straub book freaked me out - “The scariest book I‘ve ever read”...😮😂)! And the so-soft socks, owl, scarf, Poecasso pin 😆, Ouija necklace, drinkware/plate, nail decals, bags, stickers, sanitizer, towel 😻, that PILLOWCASE = 🧡🖤🧡! ⬇️

Christine Not to mention SO much candy (including some of my all-time faves!) that I won‘t need to be even the tiniest bit jealous while trick-or-treating with my kids tonight!! 😋😁 You have seriously spoiled me. Thank you for bringing so much happiness to my Halloween, @JoScho - hope yours is just as happy!! (Also the title of the tagged book is THE BEST EVER. 🤣🎃🔪) 3y
Christine @MaleficentBookDragon - Thanks again for hosting this swap - so much fun!! #allhallowsreadswap 3y
JoScho Yay!!! I am so glad you like all of your treats! Also super relieved the wine glass made it without breaking. Enjoy and if that book is too scary feel free to book it forward-it sounded so good and supernatural. Happy happy Halloween 🎃🧡 3y

Christine @JoScho Yes, the wine glass was expertly packed (and will be put to use tonight for sure 😉)! And I agree re: Ghost Story! All of the blurbs made me terrified yet excited to read it. 😛 (edited) 3y
ReadingRover Omg @Christine I got your fabulous package and have tons of pics to post. I‘m out right now but will flood the feed as soon as I get home. Thank you so much!!! 3y
Christine @ReadingRover Yay!! ❤️ 3y

This was okay and fun, but #intheend, I'm just not that into mysteries, cozy or not. I'm glad I tried it though! So thanks @Avanders 👏👏

#Rocktober

Avanders That‘s a lot how I feel about cozies - fun and light ☺️ And for some reason, I always want to read them in the fall! 🍁🍂 Anyway, even though you didn‘t love it and it didn‘t reveal some secret hidden love for cozies, I‘m still glad you tried it!! 🤗💖 4y
Cinfhen I totally agree with you...#soManyBooksSoLittleTime I might not have time for cozies 4y
Kalalalatja @Avanders I'm too! It was a great palate cleanser and wonderfully light 😊👍 4y
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen the eternal struggle 😩 4y

This is why I love Litsy and Littens. @Avanders has been beyond kind and spoiled me with everything pumpkin flavoured and themed, since we don't really have that kind of stuff in Denmark. Thank you so so so much Aletheia! Everything looks really delicious and I can't wait to try some of it later 🎃🍂 also, the socks, the scarf, the book and bookmark are all wonderful!

TrishB Awesome 👍❤ 4y
batsy Lovely! I spy squares of Ghirardelli chocolate 😋 4y
Lizpixie It's the same in Australia. Pumpkin is something you roast with potatoes for a baked leg of lamb dinner. I've only had pumpkin pie once, when I was about 8yrs old my mum experimented & made one. I remember liking it, but that was 35yrs ago🎃 4y

Kalalalatja @elkeo thanks for the rec! There's so much to dig into, I don't even know where to start 😄 4y
Kalalalatja @Lizpixie I'm thinking I might try to make a pumpkin pie at some point. I'm always kind of jealous when I see them at Thanksgiving feasts! 4y
ferskner That is an amazing international box! 4y
LeahBergen Awesome! 4y
Avanders Yeah!! I'm glad it arrived in tact! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 I realized as I was putting it together that a lot of the pumpkin stuff I like is not shelf-stable... and I couldn't send! so, if you want a pumpkin pie recipe, you know who to ask 😉 🎃🎃🎃 4y
Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon aww that's so nice of you to say 🤗 4y
TK421 Wow! That is a fantastic box of goodies! 4y
Kalalalatja @Avanders I will let you know 😉 I'm working on putting together a Danish Fall-hygge package for you, bit it might take a while, since I'm kinda swamped the coming weeks. But just to let you know 👏 4y
Avanders @Kalalalatja oh that's so sweet! 🤗🤗🤗 and exciting!! 👏🏽👏🏽💖💖 4y
