Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Happy Monday

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.  ;-)

Trick or Deceit by Shelley Freydont
Celebration Bay Mystery, Sep 2015, mass market paperback

This October in Celebration Bay, you can't swing a black cat without hitting a haunted house. Thee are three finalists in the contest for the town's official haunted house, and ten thousand dollars will go to the winner, with the rest of the proceeds funding a new community center. Event coordinator Liv Montgomery has invited her friend Jonathon Preston, the debonair director of development for a philanthropic organization, to visit town, hoping he will also award a grant to the center.

After the Museum of Yankee Horrors wins first place, the transformed Victorian boardinghouse is vandalized. Among scattered mannequins of Hester Prynne, Lizzie Borden, and the Headless Horseman, a real dead body is found--one of the contest judges. Now in addition to playing host to Jon, Liv has to play detective and coordinate the clues to unmask a self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner. . .


I haven't received any review books, won any contests or received any books as a gift. I have added a couple a day from amazon's free bestseller lists. I've pinned them here.
