We can not believe it is already September 25th! The last four weeks went by so quickly! Today we share the last of our fall picks, but don't worry next week we switch over to more Halloween themed cozies, with a few good fall ones thrown in there too! For our Double Double this week I get to go first!
Shameless I know but my choice is The Grim Steeper! Written by my friend Amanda Copper (Victoria Hamilton) and with a little something I wrote at the end, this book is right up my alley! I loved this series so much and hope that one day it will continue again! Just look at this over, I could move right in! This is book 3 in the series and one I think every tea lover should have to read and put on their shelves!
Mid-October in the charming Finger Lakes town of Gracious Grove means it’s time for the annual Fall Fling Townwide Tea Party. The highlight of the festivities is a roaming tea-tasting, which includes a stop at Auntie Rose’s Victorian Tea House. Sophie Taylor would like to share her enjoyment of the event with her sort-of boyfriend, English teacher Jason Murphy, but Jason’s dean has accused him of falsifying grades to help an athlete at the local college. Steamed and stressed, Jason shows up the night of the party with bags under his eyes. But the dean shows up under Sophie’s Japanese Maple later that night, murdered, and now Jason is suspected of far worse than fudging grade reports. It’s up to Sophie, her Nana, and their friends the Silver Spouts to pore over the clues to find out who really decided to teach the dean a lesson.
Karen K has selected one I did not even know about!
September mourn by Mary Daheim...
"This series has been a favourite of mine. The characters of Judith and her cousin Renie are a real delight. I especially love the character of Judith's quirky mother. This is a long running series and is definitely a treat."
Fall has fallen upon Judith McMonigle Flynn, leaving her Hillside Manor nearly devoid of guests. And what better cure for the off-season blahs than a brief bout of B&B sifting for a friend amid the quiet rustic splendor of secluded Chavez Island? Judith and cousin Renie both are more than ready for some relaxation. But their peace goes to pieces when Renie conks an odious interloping blowhard on the noggin with a heavy china dish-and, moments later, the woozy lout takes a fatal tumble down an inconvenient staircase. Judith suspects that death by dinnerware was not the real cause of this fellow's demise. But to prove her cantankerous cuz innocent, she'll have to uncover the real killer from among the motley island crew. And that could pile a lot more nastiness on Judith's plate than the harried bed-and-breakfast hostess can consume in one sitting!
