Three Amigos Summer Reading Club Week 11- Final Week

I can not believe we are on our final Monday of our 11 week long Three Amigos Summer Reading Club. I sure hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have. The summer goes way too fast for me and it doesn't often slow down, sometimes I wish we could adopt that Island feeling and keep summer with us all year long.  This week our theme is Cozy Mystery Books about Islands and my pick was so hard to do I have had to PICK TWO to share. Hopefully the girls won't get too upset with me. Both these books are books I purchased for myself and bought the entire series as a result!
First my pick is Duffy Brown's Braking for Bodies.
I loved this series and this is book two.  Book one is an excellent read as well but I absolutely loved book two and that cover is one of my favorites.  I understand that we may yet get a book three from Duffy and I can not wait!


I would be totally remiss if I did not also recommend Skinny Dipping with Murder by Auralee Wallace, I mean laugh out loud funny, completely and utterly one of the funniest cozy mysteries I have ever read. I think this series is a must read for those who want a light and funny cozy, with outlandish characters and adventures.

These books are about finding the joy in the journey, something I think we all forget about sometimes and these books bring a smile to my face at the remembrance of both these very different but very enjoyable Island reads....
Now let's see what my Amigos have picked for you today....

  1. I feel just like you do, I am sad to see summer leave us. I love the summer weather when everything is green and alive. But you guys having your fun fall-oween will make fall a little less painful and less of something for me to dread. :)

  4. Thanks so much, Karen, Tari, MJB and Lisa for chatting about Braking for Bodies! I truly appreciate it. Mackinac Island is amazing, I need to get back for some fried green beans, the Grand Hotel and a ride out to Mission Point. If you’d like a Lethal in Old Lace tote just email DuffyBrown@DuffyBrown.com. Hugs, Duffy
