In addition to the cake and surprise party my baby sister baked me a birthday pie, her birthday is one week before mine so when we were growing up, my mother was sick of cake by my birthday and she would bake me a lemon pie, after she passed away 6 years ago, my sister continued the tradition. It is something I look forward to every year.
I was so wonderfully spoiled by all the wonderful friends who reached out, and participated in making me feel so much love, throughout the entire day. So many wonderful friends & family, readers and authors who took the time to make me feel really special on my birthday. I feel truly blessed.
Thank you for joining me here for a cup of tea and a cozy birthday celebration. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Today I am bringing you a review of Beverley Watt's Cozy Mystery Short A Murderous Valentine. This was sent to me to review and I am so pleased to tell you how wonderful it was. This cozy short is just over 100 pages and filled with wit, humor and brilliant characters. Some fantastic lines that will stay with you too. The retired Admiral, his somewhat Loyal friend and their partners set off on what was to be a romantic weekend and takes a lovely and yet not overly predictable turn for the worse. This entire storyline was easy to picture, quite plausible and very intriguing to read. It was fun and not easy to put down. I enjoyed this very much.
"A lovely, relaxing, funny read with shades of Agatha thrown in..."Admiral Charles Shackleford’s retirement isn’t going quite according to plan. Having been instrumental in improving the lives of so many (his words – others might be inclined to call it something slightly different), he's struggling to reignite the spark in his own love life with the feisty Mabel.Short on ideas, he decides to gatecrash his much put upon best friend Jimmy Noon’s Valentine idea and ends up in the middle of a murder mystery weekend where real murder is on someone else’s script.As the weather closes in, the guests are stranded in a hotel harbouring an unknown killer. With no possibility of the police arriving any time soon, the Admiral and Jimmy have no option but to join forces in an attempt to uncover the Murderous Valentine.The unstoppable duo may be more Laurel and Hardy than Holmes and Watson, but can they catch a murderer…?This humorous cozy mystery short read is the first in The Admiral Shackleford Mysteries and follows British English spelling and usage.

Last night I finished Dorothy Cannell's The Spring Cleaning Murders. This is a first for me by this author and it was delightful. The british based cozy was lovely and a very unique story. The mysterious deaths of cleaning ladies in their circle known as the C.F.C.W.A, was nicely wound and suspicion shared beautifully among the characters. This is a mystery with heart and structure. Very difficult not to cry at the end. Lovely Mystery and one to pick up for sure. This one is out May 9th.

I read Curiosity Killed Dolly Kendall yesterday. This is a cozy short that is a lovely read.
I like cozies where the main characters are slightly older than most, and these well aged & widowed detectives do a great job of solving the murder of a lovely cat lover.
I found this book from Lisa K, who shared a link when it was free earlier in the week. I think this book is a lovely deal priced just under $2 now on Amazon. A lovely break to have a well thought out cozy short on my table this week.
