Murder on the SS Rosa
Murder on the SS Rosa: a cozy historical mystery - a novella (A Ginger Gold Mystery Book 1) - Lee Strauss

This is a prequel novella that I picked up as a kindle freebie awhile back.

 

It was actually quite cute. The series is set in the early 1920's and features a woman named Ginger Gold and her friend Haley Higgins. Ginger is a 30 year old widow who lost her husband in the war. Haley was Ginger's late father's nurse, and the two struck up a friendship. Ginger also had some involvement in the war herself as an operative of some type.

 

This novella (183 pages, according to my kindle) finds Ginger and Haley on a ship their way to London. Ginger is going to settle her father's estate, and Haley to further her medical studies.

 

Along the way the ship's captain winds up dead, and Ginger, along with Haley, and the dashing Inspector Basil Reed sets out to discover the murderer.

 

Oh! And there's a doggie named Boss (short for Boston)!

 

Ginger does put me in the mind of Phryne Fisher, and according to the author, she was influenced by the Miss Fisher tv series, so I guess maybe she was supposed to.

Fortunately, I took my kindle to work today, and actually had a bit of free time for once, so I got a good chunk of this read.

 

Came home and finished it up.

Ok, so I'm using this one for Cozy Mystery. Night of the Living Deed will be used for Ghost.

Re-Read: I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons
I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons - Kevin Hart,Neil Strauss

Re-Read:
August 18 - August 28

I gotta say I enjoyed this the second time almost as much as the first. Kevn’s vocal dramatization of the words I was already familiar with did not disappoint. The consummate funny man brought so much energy and character to his words of wisdom. It was great to revisit his lessons. Contemplate again the great points he has made and reevaluate how these lessons apply to my life.

Anyone know what these colored triangles mean?  UPDATE — thanks to Grimlock's comment on another post — triangles refer to movement up/down on the chart.
