I am reading a very enjoyable new to me cozy author/series
Dead on the Vine by Elle Brooke White
Set on a farm in Calfornia. Love the pig named Horse in the book. Lots of good farming discussion.
I finished In the Dog House :: V. M. Burns 3 stars out of 5. It was an okay cozy first in the series. The dogs were fun in the story. I thought she could have done more with inlaw family. The murder itself was pretty easy to figure out. Main character has room to develop over the series.
I am reading Cat Among the Pigeons by Agatha Christie for one of my goodreads cozy mystery groups. I haven't read an Agatha Christie book in several years. I forgot how good of an author she was. The writing style is much better than many of the modern cozy writers (They are not silly). This book features Hercule Poirot, I like Miss Marple too. Just thought I would share my thoughts:)
I love Agatha Christie, Alice. I read all her books when I was in high school as my mom got me started on them. My very favorites are Pale Horse and Son of the Endless Night, two different sort of mysteries from Agatha.
I finished my book Bookmarked for Murder (Mystery Bookshop) :: V. M. Burns 4 stars out of 5. This book is numbe 5 in the series. Well constructed cozy. Set in Michigan the day after Christmas to New Years. I like that Ms. Burns uses many senior characters and makes them vibrant with active lives. They are complex and well written. She does an outstand job writing about the elderyly minature poodles, Oreo and Snickers. She owns poodles herself and the books show it by what they do and the care needed. Very good series but I recommend starting with books one The Plot is Murder.
