Earlier in the week, I reviewed the first book (Murder Simply Brewed) in this cozy whodunit series set in an Amish Artisan Village in Middlebury, Indiana.

I am embarrassed to admit that I am sorely behind in my Elizabeth Camden reading, so today I decided to play catch up and checked out the first one I hadn’t read, With Every Breath, from my county library’s Overdrive account. (Side note: if your library has Overdrive for ebooks, you need […]

I’m a sucker for cold cases. Back eons ago (last year) when we had DirecTV, I happily spent hours watching shows about solving long dead cases and putting away criminals who thought they’d gotten away with it.  It’s true – Netflix could support my habit and I do still get my […]

Favorites Friday Review: A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer | New Release
