This is one if my favorite cozy series. Meg's cousin has started a podcast about cold cases. When his cohost is almost run over, they suspect the cause is one if the close to home cases they featured. So they enlist Meg to investigate. During this, we do get treated to the usual chaos of Meg's family as they prepare for her brother's wedding.

I reread this childhood favorite as I found it in my closet while cleaning. Based on the real real pony penning that takes place, it's a story of hope and believing from 2 children who do what adults couldn't. After my reread, I'm going to pass this old battered copy to my niece.

A delightful cozy mystery! I loved the way the feisty main character, Mia, speaks her mind and never compromises her principles. Set in Salem, Massachusetts, which sounds like a fun and funky town. I have added it to my travel bucket list! This was the first in a series, and I look forward to reading more.
Thanks @Allylu for another great pic for #TrappedOnAnIsland! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Even though #Washington was the only new state I visited in September for #RoadTripUSA2022, it was a remarkable trip!

Bridgeside books: thanks for the recommendation! Read this little page turner during a camping trip just outside Waterbury where this takes place! Vermont ideals, characters who are real, in a story that could have been me or the person next door. There‘s a moment when a beloved pet gets lost, definitely understand the terror from how much owners love their pets here!!! Finished this in less than a day. Great read!

julieclair #Stacked! I need a Vermont book for #RoadTripUSA2022, and this one sounds like fun! 👍 2mo
SnowEcho @julieclair yay I hope you enjoy it! Definitely fun and relatable at least for me! 2mo

A multi-layered, and ultimately hopeful, story about the many ways generations of secret-keeping can affect families. Set in Savannah, Georgia, with a particular appreciation of the Gullah culture, the South itself feels like one of the characters. Told from multiple points of view, and with a diverse cast of characters, the topic of race relations is handled in a way that feels authentic. Quirky characters and a few resident ghosts add humor ⬇️

julieclair to the story, and the numerous secrets that are revealed make for a very satisfying read! #Pantone2022 #LavaFalls @Clwojick #RoadTripUSA2022 #Georgia @megnews 3mo

I absolutely love the Kate Burkholder series, and book 14 did not disappoint! I'm always a bit sad when Kate's investigations take her away from Painter's Creek and the crew we have gotten to know there, but really, it makes sense since how many murderous Amish can there really be in one small town?? 😂 It's not absolutely necessary to read this series in order, but I highly recommend it, as Kate's backstory and character are developed so well⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) throughout the series. The mystery here kept me engaged, and even though I had guessed some of it, I didn't guess it all.

As a side note, I'm in love with Tomasetti 😂

mabell That‘s how I felt when Jessica would leave Cabot Cove! I‘m assuming for the same reason - only so many murders in a small town can be “plausible” 😆 4mo

July was a busy travel month. Five new states! Delaware was the most enjoyable. Colorado was the most thought-provoking.

This wasn't my favorite Margolin thriller, but it was still a solid read. Ami is a struggling single-mom attorney who rents her over-the-garage apartment for extra income. Her current boarder seems friendly and kind, but during a Little League game he loses control and almost kills two men with his bare hands. Ami finds herself sucked into the situation more and more as the man tells her a story that sounds unbelievable, of a special secret ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) group of government special operatives working under the radar, combined with evil misdeeds and directions from a powerful man now running for president. Is Carl's story legitimate? That's the crux of the story, and honestly, Margolin had me going until the very end as he does a fabulous job of presenting information from Carl and Vanessa (another character who believes Carl's story) that had me convinced that the General was the evil ⬇ 4mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) mastermind they claimed, followed by a situation where the General gives perfectly reasonable explanations for everything they're saying, making me doubt them once again. The actual action of the story isn't very fast-paced, especially compared to other Margolin stories that I've read, and some parts felt repetitive as we would hear the same story from both Carl and Vanessa's perspective. There is also a big courtroom scene that recaps ⬇ 4mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) everything and consequently felt a little bogged down. But on the whole, this was an engaging story that genuinely did have me going back and forth about the veracity of Carl's claims.
