New Year, New Me? No Thanks!

by Luella Zak, from Kylie Logan's League of Literary Ladies mystery series


It's a brand new year and Bea Cartwright (you know her, she's the one who moved here to South Bass Island last year to open that fancy bed and breakfast), has asked each of us in the League of Literary Ladies to check in with our resolutions.

Resolutions?  Honey, at my age, the biggest thing I can hope for is just to make it through another year!  

Not that I'm complaining.  Life is good.  I've got my health.  I've got the Miss Luella, the charter fishing boat I took over when my wonderful Joe died a few years back.  I've got more than seventy years of memories here on South Bass and I've got friends.  Good ones.  All members of the League of Literary Ladies.

We're a book discussion group and let me tell you, when I first heard there was one starting at the library, I just couldn't wait.  I've always got a book with me when I'm out on the waters of Lake Erie.  To me, reading is like breathing, even if that's not exactly true of the other ladies in the League.  You heard the rumor, right?   They belong to the book discussion group because it was court ordered; the town magistrate was sick of the three of them bickering and taking each other to court and decided they needed to learn to talk to each other.

Talking, books, friends . . . I'd say that's enough for anyone to wish for in one new year.

Oh, that and no more murders!

  1. The Legend of Sleepy Harlow is already on my reading list. I read the first book in the series and loved it. :)

  8. This sounds like a great book to read. Oh, my list of books to read is getting so long that I have to buy a new notebook! LOL

  9. I started your series (out of order) with THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HARLOW, this past October; and quickly picked up the first two. And, I can't wait to dig into them. What a great series, I am so happy I found it. I look forward to future books. Happy New Year and happy writting.
