Four more for #LitsyAtoZ!
#LetterE - Emily Climbs is the 2nd in the Emily trilogy by L.M. Montgomery. I‘ve never read the Anne books but liked these.
#LetterJ - Jazz Funeral - set in New Orleans- this is a fun murder mystery series full of local color.
#LetterP and #LetterQ - Princess Elizabeth‘s Spy and The Queen‘s Accomplice - this WWII spy series tests credibility at times but I‘m invested in the characters and am liking these.
24/26

JenlovesJT47 Hey! I just realized I had 3 books for whodunitthesequel — 1 of them is yours, I‘m so sorry for the delay. I‘m trying to finish them all ASAP and hopefully have them mailed by the beginning of next week. So sorry for the delay! (As usual 🙄) 2y
Pamwurtzler @JenlovesJT47 Hi! Hope you are well! No rush, I know I‘m not in a huge hurry to go to the post office. 2y

Up to 20 for this year‘s #LitsyAtoZ!
#LetterN - Now May You Weep - I must not be the only one new to this series because every time I try to check out the next one, there‘s a wait.
#LetterO - One Small Sacrifice - the first one of what looks like a good series revolving around an NYPD detective.
#LetterV - The Vanishing Stair - the second of three revolving around murders in the past and present at a boarding school.
⬇️

Pamwurtzler #LetterW - Why We Came to the City - a group of college friends dealing with adulting and tragedy in NYC. This one was super good!!! 2y

1. I like seeing what people are reading, and many of the pictures you guys take are amazing! I‘m not creative at all; mostly what you get from me are pictures of my kindle screen.
2. I‘m honestly not interested in the pet photos (#unpopularopinion, I know! 🤷‍♀️)
3. I saw another comment about a favorites list - that would be nice.
4. Not as often as I used to. I mostly only post when I‘m participating in a challenge.

This is the 12th in the Murder by Month series. They‘re cozies set in small town #Minnesota, and are full of fun, quirky characters. The main character, Mira, comes to town to house and pet sit for a friend and manages to stumble across a dead body every month. #ReadingUSA2019 This puts me at 35/50 and it‘s definitely getting harder to find good books!

This is the second book in this series, so I may have needed to read the first one. Cash is a Native American who seems to have a sixth sense or something- in this book a couple of girls are kidnapped and she uses that sense to rescue them. Good but I‘m not sure I‘d read another. #ReadingUSA2019 #NorthDakota (this would also work for Minnesota as they go back and forth)

I love this series set in 1975 Kansas City. The MC is an artist and a widow (details I book 1) who lives in the Country club district. It‘s probably got something to do with my age, but the details in these books are perfect and if murder can be fun, these are. #ReadingUSA2019 #Missouri #cozyinthesun
