Karen here taking over Lisa's blog for the day with two questions...
For those of you experiencing the sweltering heat and looking for a great escape cozy, do you choose a cozy mystery where it is the same time of year, summer based, where the characters are suffering along with you or do you try to pick your book based on a different time of the year?
By August, as a reader, who is anxiously awaiting the jean and sweater wearing weather, I actively look for a fall themed read. Something to loose myself in, and forget about the climate, outside, politically and fear from the on going pandemic in the outside world. This is where the library comes in handy for me. When I am in a reading rut or in need of the right book to fall into my lap, I go to my library (ours are open here where I live) spin the rack and then take home any cozy that falls from the rack. I have found some of my most favorite authors using this method.
Had I not done so I would never have discovered Lorraine Bartlett, Miranda James, Heather Webber or Krista Davis.
Wherever you find yourself today, take a moment and imagine that tea party! Who would be there, what you would all talk about and what you would serve. I would love to hear what you think so please consider commenting below. Happy party planning and for joining me here today on my take over day.
