Book: Drizzled with Death
Series: The Sugar Grove Mysteries
Author: Jessie Crockett
Snow! We've sure had a lot of it this year in New Hampshire. The snow banks are so high I can't see a thing from behind the wheel of my vintage MG Midget when I stop at intersections. I don't think even the people in minivans are doing much better.
We've plowed it, we've shoveled it and we've skied down it. But I'm done. The Winter Doldrums have finally worn me down. I've decided to simply ignore it until the sap begins to run and sugaring season begins. I've laid in a supply of cheese and crackers, coffee beans and red wine. Over the years I've bought more books than I've managed to read and I've decided now is the perfect time to catch up. Nothing makes a long winter pass faster than time spent with a book.
Mysteries are my favorite and I plan to spend the next couple of weeks curled up in my favorite chair gorging on Margery Allingham, Ngaio Marsh and a bunch of current authors like the ones I see listed on a blog called Killer Characters.
So how about you? How will you ride out the rest of the winter? Do you have any books to recommend in case things drag on and I run low?
