#teamfozziwig @Clwojick @StayCurious @BarkingMadRun #tbrread Finished this one up and loved it!! It is the second in thrilling series that gives the reader a look into the "what if" of a world that is faced with a devastating aftermath of a quick spreading disease. The idea that this is not so far out of the realm of possibility makes it even more of an engrossing and captivating read.

The Poor and The Haunted | Dustin McKissen
post image
Pickpick

This is an amazing spiral of a story that provokes a multitude of emotions throughout the entire tale. I was drawn into the characters from the beginning page until the final page. I was truly blown away by Mr. McKissen, the characters that he created and the story that he weaved. Filled with tense moments, suspense, emotions and surprising twists, The Poor and The Haunted is one of the best reads that I have read this year!

What would you do if your best friend was arrested for a murder that she didn't commit, even though all evidence points to her? That is the question that Arlo must face when her best friend, Chloe is arrested when her ex and baby daddy is found dead outside their shop door. She has 10 days to prove Chloe's innocence and time is quickly running out.
Full of quaint and lively characters, Cozy Mystery fans will love this first book in a new series!

Christmas from the Heart | Sheila Roberts

I absolutely loved this story! Sheila Roberts is such an amazing author that always brings a smile to my face and brings me out of any reading slump. The characters are brought to life in such a way that I felt as though they were old friends. The story is heartwarming, fun and the perfect amount of romance. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!!

Quick question. I have found several Christmas/Holiday themed books that I really want to read. They sound amazing. The problem? They are part of a series. I have not read the series, but the holiday themed books sound great. One is the tagged book. Do any of you have this problem? If so, can Holiday themed books stand alone? Thanks!

Lauram Go for it! Maybe you‘ll find you want to read the others! (edited) 2mo

What are some of your favorite scary, creepy reads that left your skin crawling and goosebumps rising? Not so much overly gory, but good old lock-your-doors-tight, hide-under-the-blankets scary.
