Thank you @Chrissyreadit adit for the #cozyswap! I love it! Thank you @avanders for hosting. Sorry for posting late. The flooding here has thrown me off. Luckily we are back home and only the storage is flooded.

Chrissyreadit Oh no! I‘m sorry to hear you‘re dealing with flooding! 2mo
Q84 We just came out not flooded. Any further and it would have been in our house but we did have to evacuate. We are home now and safe. I so love the bag you made! It's awesome! Thank you so much for everything else too! @Chrissyreadit 2mo
veritysalter Sorry to hear about the flooding. You‘ll love MC Beaton, there are so many, she got me through some tough times. 2mo

Woohoo!!! Congratulations!!

I'm tagging my favorite Cozy Mystery of the year so far. Favorite actual book is just too hard to discern.

@Millesent is a newer Litten and we have bonded over the tagged book/series. :)

Litsy is my happy social media place. Real book lovers that you can talk books and life with, send cards and letters to, and generally nerd out over things together. I really love it.

Congrats @GrilledCheeseSamurai #SixDigitSamurai

GrilledCheeseSamurai I love a good nerd out. 😁 Thanks for playing. 2mo

So this series was described to me as Gilmore girls with a side of murder and that is just what it is. An idyllic town full of crazy personalities and a plot that kept me guessing right up until the very end!!! Absolutely loved it!!!

Dollycas‘s Thoughts
Secrets, falsehoods, and just their general demeanor made it hard to eliminate anyone outright. I followed right along and didn‘t put all the clues together until shortly before the villain reveal.

It has been an incredibly long couple of weeks so taking today to read (and clean and make a trip to the library but that's for later.) Almost finished this book in one sitting last night but got too sleepy. So I'm excited to finish it today and get the next two in the series from the library!!

This was a nice little cozy mystery I picked up for free from my Book Bub emails one day. Bonus is that I needed a book for my #Booked2019 prompt for something with food or drink on the cover and this just happen to fit the bill!
I should really pick up more cozy mysteries, they are a good palate cleanser between heavier reads!

kellyann28 @cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft My pick for "a book with good on the cover" ? 7mo
Cinfhen Plenty of food on the cover!! I‘m not a fan of the cozy but they are perfect as palette cleansers!! 7mo

This was not bad for your basic cozy bakery mystery. I might read another one! #ReadingUSA2019 #Oregon

I usually don't do the culinary cozies, but this was the first one that really tempted me to try the recipes. Alexander writes about pastries in a way that makes your mouth water. I really loved that while Jules is trying to help with a murder investigation, she's really bad at it. Really bad at it. I also really loved her friendship with Thomas. Alexander nails that old flames who are now friends but still flirt banter perfectly.

Day 4 #FallIntoBooks #OccupationInTheTitle I looked to my foodie books for occupations in titles and it turns out there are a lot of bakers, chefs, cooks (even an outlaw cook) & a restaurant critic (and his wife) in there. 😋🍽 A mix of fiction genres, memoirs, & foodie essays--I've read and enjoyed all of these. 🍽📚❤️

ralexist Have you read Amy Thielen's Give a Girl a Knife? 2y
DebinHawaii @ralexist It's on my to-read list but I have not yet. 📚📚📚 2y

"He died when I was fifteen. Mom pays a subtle tribute to him with her rotating quote of the day on Torte's massive chalkboard menu.

Today's read, 'Torte - where everyone is above the salt.' "

This caught my eye because I always wanted to open my own independent book store. I could do daily quotes related to reading & books.

Sorry. Not really related to this book but the book gave me the idea

I've been doing a ton of food prep being on the Keto diet and this afternoon I baked this keto bread for the week. I thought it'd be rough reading this book knowing I can't at the moment eat any of the delicious baked goods Jules was making but her love for it just made me appreciate the food more.

A great setting for a great mystery. Not my favourite cozy but still an enjoyable read. Looking forward to the next one. #cozymysteries

Today's Nook Daily Find. A cozy mystery. First in series. I've seen some good things about this here on Litsy so I thought I'd share. 🤓📚

#RockinMay #smalltown Except for their inordinately high murder rates😱I have a few small towns from cozy mystery series-both real (Ashland OR, Oakwood, OH) or imagined (Winsome, PA, Wildwood Cove, WA, & Smeaton-Under-Lyme, Great Britain)-that I think might be fun to live in. They are full of quaint houses, shops, farms, cafes & quirky citizens that make them endearing. (The paintings are by Olga Pimnova (top left) & Sharon Schock (middle right)❤️

actualdisneyprincess LOVE the gang from the Bakeshop Mysteries! Ashland seems like a lovely place!! 3y

DebinHawaii @actualdisneyprincess I haven't been there in ages but it is a fun & charming town. Ellie Alexander has a new series coming out soon set in Leavenworth, WA (another cute real town) about a female beer brewer. 👍😀🍺 3y
actualdisneyprincess Ahhhh, I'll have to keep an eye out!! 💖💖 3y
Dragon I once went to a play in Ashland, it is a lovely town .😀 3y
DebinHawaii @actualdisneyprincess I follow her on Instagram. The book is out in October. 3y
DebinHawaii @Dragon I have been to a few of the plays there years ago. ❤️ So fun to hang out in the town. 3y
Dragon 👍 3y
DebinHawaii @Emiller Someday, I will read her books--I have heard such good things. 📚👍 3y
Cinfhen I wish this was an actual puzzle! How gorgeous would that be?!? Everyday your photos blow me away!!! 3y
DebinHawaii @Cinfhen It would be a cool puzzle. Thankfully the cozies have colorful covers so they look pretty and cheery on a collage. 💜🏘📚 3y

I've decided that for #LitsyAtoZ I would tackle as many of my unread cozies as possible. I signed up for the Mixed version, but I'm going to see if I can manage with just last names, then see if I can do a second round using titles. When cozies aren't a available, I'll use historical mysteries. This was my first one #LetterA (I'm also doing it alphabetically) @BookishMarginalia

1st book in a new-to-me foodie cozy mystery series. I liked the setting of Torte, a small family-owned bakery in Ashland, OR (home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival) & the main character Juliet Montague Capshaw (Jules) back from her job as a cruise ship chef to decide what to do about her husband's betrayal & help her mom w/the bakery. When an OSF board member is found dead in the shop Jules is on the case. Recipes are mixed in w/the mystery too.

BethFishReads Looks fun (edited) 3y

Day21 #SeasonsReadings2016 #hotdrinkandabook My Wednesday morning ritual is working out of my neighborhood coffee shop & my current hot beverage of choice is a soy cinnamon & honey latte which is like drinking a hug.😆 I try to start the morning by reading on my Kindle before starting to work. I'm reviewing the 5th book in this foodie cozy mystery series but I hate not reading in order so the author sent the first 4 e-books, starting w/ this one.

LauraBeth ❤ this title 😀 3y
shanebeth I want to drink a hug! 3y

DebinHawaii @LauraBeth @melbeautyandbooks It seems like a fun series-the 5th book is Fudge & Jury & there is A Batter of Life and Death. 😆👍 3y
DebinHawaii @shanebeth @Reecaspieces @Amandajoy It is a yummy drink. ❤️☕️😆 3y
melbeautyandbooks @DebinHawaii- Those titles are great! 😂I'm putting them on my TBR. 3y
Jinjer Do you make your own cinnamon honey latte? How do u make that? Sounds so good! 3y
BethFishReads Nice that you can catch up 3y
DebinHawaii @Jinjer I did not but it is basically just a soy latte with honey as the sweetener and ground cinnamon. I can get the amounts for you. My coffee shop does a version with cinnamon syrup too but I like it not so sweet so I just have them leave that out & add extra ground cinnamon instead. 👍 3y
DebinHawaii @BethFishReads Yes--very nice. Although now I have to read these books before my review in mid January. Luckily they are pretty quick reads. 😀 3y
BethFishReads Well, yes, there's that. 3y
