We interrupt this talk of cats to note that I have finished Dragonwell Dead by Laura Childs. It was ok. Needed more depth and more complicated plot. I do like all the talk of tea and the yummy recipes. I've started North by Northhanger by Carrie Bebris. Loved the first two books in the series and I'm looking forward to this one.
I recently bought Scratch the Surface by Susan Conant, supposedly a really good cat-lover mystery, and Died in the Wool by Mary Kruger. Died in the Wool is part of a knitting mystery series. I want to see if that series is as good as the Maggie Sefton knitting mystery series.
I also bought a book from an author whose work I'd almost forgot about: Karen MacInerney. She has begun a mystery series set in Maine and involving a B&B called the Grey Whale Inn. I liked the first book: Murder on the Rocks. The newest book is called Dead and Berried.
I'm beginning to sort out the books I want to take with me when we move to Europe in June. I'll have maybe three months to amuse myself while my belongings are shipped from Hawaii to Germany. I'll probably box up some books and mail them to myself in Germany. That way I won't have to lug everything with me. I'll check on the status of the mail over there and decided what I want to mail.
