Raspberry Danish Murder
Raspberry Danish Murder - Joanne Fluke

Ross is still missing and Mike and Norman are doing their best to be there for Hannah. No one knows where he is or what he is doing. PK, Ross's assistant, is helping Michelle promote the plays that are coming up and being around her and Hannah. Offering them hope and letting them know if he has heard anything. One day, he asks if they can give him a ride, but they let him borrow Ross's car, that Michelle is driving, and as he is leaving work, he calls them on the phone and lets them know that he is having problems. He ate some candy found on Ross's desk. Since he was video calling them they were able to give Mike some clues as to where he went off the road. They go and find that Ross is dead, they find out that the candy was poisoned, but they don't know who the candy was really for. Hannah and Michelle and Lonnie and Mike all team up to find out who killed PK and was Ross the real target. 

 

When I got to the end of the story, I was disappointed because it was left as another cliffhanger and I walked away saying that I hated Ross. I just felt that there was not a good conclusion to the story. This story had 29 recipes! I saved several because I really want to try some of the recipes. One thing about the recipes is all the tips that are included in them.

Finally sat down to update my bookshelf
Werner's Nomenclature of Colours: Adapted to Zoology, Botany, Chemistry, Minerology, Anatomy and the Arts - Patrick Syme
Single Malt Murder: A Whisky Business Mystery - Melinda Mullet,Gemma Dawson
The Accidental President: Harry S. Truman and the Four Months That Changed the World - A.J. Baime,Tony Messano
Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d'Art - Euan Morton,Christopher Moore

 

It has been a while since I have updated my shelves or even downloaded my purchases to my computer (a process even slower these days than adding them to my bookshelf here). But today had been housekeeping day and at least here I am up-to-date. Now I can go spend the rest of my credits. Or, perhaps I should invest some effort into finishing the books I have already bought. In other words, it is time to attack Mount TBR. <dashing knight in armor, on horseback and a flourish of trumpets>

 

The truth of the matter is that Mt. TBR is just not as daunting when it doesn't take up much needed physical space thus lacking the imperative to "get these books read and put away already." Moreover, I just am not inclined to read anything new right now or to even finish any of the three or four titles that I have begun and abandoned but am not ready to declare DNF. I have been enjoying a prolonged and relaxing period of working my way through my re-read list and it seems that the only thing that will be getting me out of this groove is that I am quickly reaching the end of the alphabet and thus the end of the list. Yes, I read the list A-Z and then start over; it saves having to choose what to read next or answering that age old question, "what do I feel like reading."

 

All told, I added one reference book, five books and six selections from the Great Courses catalog. I hope I chose well.

Murder, She Wrote Panning for Murder
Panning For Murder - Donald Bain,Jessica Fletcher

Jessica is set to go to Seattle, WA for a book signing and then begin her Alaska Tour. Her friend, Cathy, asks if she can come along as she needs help in trying to find her sister, Wilhelmina (Willie). They run into a crazy man who thinks Jessica stole his idea for a story (setting - California), many who remember Willie because she talked non-stop about finding the gold her aunt had left them. They meet many notable characters on the cruise and they use the library to find answers and they ask questions of all they can. The response they got was not good. They need to continue asking questions and searching for Willie. 

 

I really enjoyed the story as it was still reminiscent of the old shows.
