It‘s June so that it means it‘s time for a wedding . . . and a mystery (of course). Have you ever seen roses this color? I hadn‘t. So unusual!

A Killer in King‘s Cove is like an English village mystery, except in Canada. Set post WWII, the characters have interesting backstories from the war that impact their every day life. Looking forward to seeing how the series, which is set in a small mountain town, develops. 📚 Bookish question: What are your favorite fictional small towns and villages? 🔎🌲🏔🔎

Sarah83 There are quite a few. Especially I love the settings in Agatha Christie's books, when there is a manor and a little village pretty close. 6mo

CaitZ My favorite movie is Laura with Dana Andrews. This book looks like one I'd enjoy. 6mo

An English garden, a tart, and a mystery—some of my favorite things. Do you have a garden? I don‘t have a green thumb and do better reading and writing about a garden rather than trying to grow one! 🌺 🔎 🌸 🌱 🌳 🌸 🔎 🌺

My weekend read. The latest Miss Dimont mystery is set in the 1950s on the Devon coast.
🎪
A clash between a posh hotel and the nearby rough-and-tumble holiday camp escalates and everyone is on edge. 📝
A woman turns up dead and Miss Dimont shows up with her reporter‘s notebook determined to get to the truth.

I‘ve been in the writing cave and then swamped with promoting a new series, but I‘m back now. I‘ll try to catch up with some recent reads, including this one:

Reading A Dream of Death and enjoying the dual narrative with modern and historical story lines. An antique dealer travels to a Scottish island and becomes involved in a murder investigation. 🔍⛰✨

JazzFeathers How are you liking it? I bailed 1/3 through 😶 13mo
SaraRosett @jazzfeathers Finally finished it. It took me a while. Life got busy and the story didn‘t grip me. I thought the characters‘ attitude toward bereaved families going on tours of the battlefields and cemeteries in Europe was a bit harsh. I can understand how it might bring closure. Not sure why the characters looked down on families who took the tours. 13mo
JazzFeathers @SaraRosett Yeah, the main characters' attitude toward the war, Veterans and people trying to cope was one of the things that put me off. I find the psychological not very realistic (not to mention sympathetic). The heaviness of the romance wasn't for me too, but l could have endured it if the historical environment had been more understanding. 13mo

SaraRosett @jazzfeathers The cover is great and I love the map as endpapers. I‘ll post another pic of the map. 13mo
Freespirit I enjoyed this but did find it confusing at times. Very original 13mo
SaraRosett @Freespirit Same for me. Points for originality. But the explanation of why he was there seemed a little thin. 13mo

It‘s National Book Lovers Day! What are you reading? I just finished Murder She, Reported. Biz Adams would rather be a news photographer than a socialite and goes to work as a gal Friday in a newsroom. I enjoyed the 1930s New York setting and the work relationship Biz develops with a seasoned reporter as they solve a murder. #cozymystery #nationalbookloversday #ilovecozies #cozymystery #historicalmystery #orangecovers
