How great? Well, it looks like she consumed the entire Outlander series and immersed herself in cozy mysteries.
Did you know "cozy mysteries" is a thing? I have been reading them for ages and just thought that was my author's pet name for her series.
"Cozy mysteries" apparently involve cats saving humans from their own foolishness. (Maybe it's just me....) Well, I know my cats are exhausted each night after they keep me out of danger every day, even when I am at work — thanks to the Cat Networks.
At any rate, here is what Karen read this summer:
- Dragonfly in Amber
- Drums of Autumn
- The Fiery Cross
- A Breath of Snow and Ashes
- An Echo in the Bone
- Written in my Own Heart’s Blood
- Murder in the Art Gallery
- A Sip of Murder:A Japanese Tea Garden Mystery
- Cream Puff Murder
- Gone with the Ghost
- You’ve Got Tail
- The Secret of Seaside
- Cruel Candy
- Marigolds and Murder
- Wicked for Hire
- Sweets and a Stabbing
- Bakeries and Bones
- Horribly Haunted in Hillbilly Hollow
- A Shot in the Bark
As a reward for a summer well-spent, Karen received a copy of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore — which you all might want to put on your holiday gift list. Just saying.
