An Excellent Mystery by Ellis Peters
An Excellent Mystery - Ellis Peters

An Excellent Mystery by Ellis Peters


Series: Cadfael #11


This is an unusual Cadfael in that the mystery is in the form of a missing person rather than a body that someone stumbles across. I wasn’t sure what to rate it because although I did figure it out fairly early on, I wasn’t sure how my theory could work, and I didn’t know if I was right. Overall I did enjoy the read but I’m not sure if my figuring it out so early was expected or a good thing. I mean, it’s fun when you can guess or try to guess the solution to the mystery rather just having the solution handed to you at a platter at the end, but I’m not sure whether I was supposed to figure it out so soon. Things did work out rather neatly but that’s the way Ellis Peters liked to write these. They’re basically cozy historical mysteries.

Enjoy The Brilliant Designs Of The Kantha Saree



Kantha stitch saree originates from the state of Bengal, and this excellent embroidery work is traditionally used for adorning the quilts. However, there has a tremendous response to this design in sarees, and women widely prefer it as prestigious wear on all occasions. Exclusive Kantha Stitch Saree is typically made of tussar silk, pure silk, or cotton and comes with brilliant and immaculate designs of the skilled designers. You can find excellent kantha stitch saree collection online or with the fabric wholesalers, and it will be a thing to treasure once you own such a saree. Each Kantha saree can take weeks and sometimes months to prepare that depends on the design and the intricacy of the pattern.

Reading resource
Excellent Books for Early and Eager Readers - Kathleen T Isaacs

Excellent Books for Early and Eager Readers by Kathleen T. Isaacs is more or less a giant bibliography of books for children. It's organized into different categories such as transitional books (between picture books, easy readers, or short chapter books), quests, talking animal stories, and books about magic. I ended up taking down so many titles to add to my TRL that I had a stack that was nigh on teetering to the ceiling (18 books before I stopped counting). Needless to say, this is an excellent resource for anyone who is either a professional working with children or a parent trying to encourage their child to reach their maximum potential. (It doesn't beat the Read-Aloud Handbook though.) This isn't a book one would generally read cover-to-cover (although that's exactly what I did) but rather one you'd dip in and out of for ideas on books you and the children in your life could read. 8/10

I'm doing a quick re-read of Excellent Women, while I still have the audio version fresh in my mind from this past Pymalong buddy read.
