Reading progress update: I've listened 413 out of 609 minutes.
The Garden Plot - Marty Wingate

Pru is too trusting. At least one suspicious-acting person in her life has already turned out to be bad news. Now I'm worried about another person close to her, one who seems to be keeping important details from her. Pru even knows this person has kept stuff from her. Why isn't she wondering what else they might be hiding?

 

And OMG, mice don't move whole pieces of furniture. I get that it can be comforting to lie to yourself about things that worry or scare you, but Pru takes it to a whole new level.

The Garden Plot - Marty Wingate

Today was not a good day - too much built-up stress and not enough opportunity to let it drain off over the weekend. I'm trying to decompress a little by playing some mindless computer games while listening to this. Hopefully I'll be easier to be around by tomorrow.

 

Pru and DCI Pearse are now on a first-name basis - his name is Charles. And yes, he's definitely the love interest. They went on a date, and ended up sharing an umbrella. It was sweet. I'm a little surprised that a guy like Charles would date someone involved, even if only tangentially, in an ongoing investigation. But I do like him. As it turns out, he isn't just a fan of hedgehogs but badgers as well. He helped found some kind of badger enthusiast group back in the town he used to live in.

I believe the rules of cozies dictate that DCI Pearse (had to look that spelling up, I thought it was Pierce) will end up being Pru's love interest. They just had one of those stereotypical "female character stubbornly refuses to move, is suddenly aware of how close the male character is standing" moments (Pru was standing in the way of Pearse and some evidence she'd just found).

 

He wears suits on his days off and seems overly stiff, but he gets excited about hedgehogs. He could turn out to be adorable. We'll see.

AHHHH.

 

 

I think Pru has finally gotten a job offer, or at least something that sounds really promising, and her phone just got broken in an attack. I hope she finds about about it and calls in time, or I might actually scream in agony.

(spoiler show)

 

 

Each chapter (or section?) starts with one or more of Pru's gardener position rejection letters. They're all very nice rejections, but this latest set makes me anxious for her.

Reading progress update: I've read 201 out of 271 pages.
On Borrowed Time - Jenn McKinlay

Every time Lindsey has lied to Emma in order to protect her brother, I'm reminded of the previous book. Wasn't Emma in on the whole thing with Robbie? If she could handle that without any of it showing on her face even a little, she could handle this. This newest revelation makes all of that even more frustrating.
