I am reading 

The Game is a Footnote by Vicki Delany. Book 7 in the series. Very enjoyable series set on Cape Cod. I would recommend you start with book one in the series.

I am reading The Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries by Emily Brightwell.  She has 41 books in the series. Has anyone read it. Does it progress well?

I will be creating a new challenge soon for 2024. Any suggested categories?

I am reading Dead as a Door Knocker by Diane Kelly and am enjoying it.

Alice, I'm reading that book as well.

No suggestions here for next years topics.   I need to read one more fruit/veggie to meet my personal goal for this challenge (at least five in each category).

I will post new challenge in December

I finished Put Out To Pasture by Amanda Flower  

It is okay not my favorite series by here, but needed a cozy with fruit or veggie on cover for this year's cozy challenge.

I've read all the Mrs. Jeffries series, Alice, and love the series.  The characters are endearing and seem to grow as the books progress. There is some repetiveness in the stories as the servants/friends help the inspector solve the mystery and he is unaware of their help.

I read my five or more in each category but only four in the one with a fruit or vegetable on the cover.  Unwatching for 2023 and beginning to work on 2024's challenge.
