I guess all authors phone it in at some point. Hopefully she'll get back on track.
Oy.

ETA: I think I have ever known exactly one man who crochets. I am pushing half a century.

I'm close to the half-century mark too and I don't know any men who crochet. So expecting us to believe 6 of them do is straining the boundaries a bit...

Six is a bit much. I think I've known two but only one actually made stuff regularly.
Sorry this didn't work for you. Which series is she wrapping up? I think I've read the first one in this series and I keep meaning to pick up Cloche and Dagger but having yet.

She's ending the series she writes under Josie Bell - the Good Buy Girls. It was easily the weakest of the four series and honestly, you'd never know she'd written them the style is so different.

I didn't know she write one under a pseudonym. Makes sense to end the weakest one. Is her cupcake series good?

It was good - it started off really strong. Then she introduced a love triangle and the last book ended ridiculously. Like "Are you effing kidding me?!?" kind of ridiculous. I don't say that to turn you off from it; it's worth reading, but I think the next book will either bring it back from the brink, or be the series death knell.

In spite of this book, I still think this series and the hat shop series are my two favourites though.

Good to know. Though the Meg Langslow series and now Diane Mott Davidson's are going to keep my busy next year. I found quite a few of Davidson's series in hardback at McKays with crazy prices $1.50 - 3.00! Yeah...we may have come back with a boxful. I'll try to post about my haul in the next few days when I'm not trying to frantically get everything posted on a deadline.

Indeed. :) Thought of you as I was browsing.
