More Book Thoughts...

So...

The Graces was really an awesome book. It sort of reminded me of the witchy books of Deborah Harkness...which I loved...only we need to subtract 10 to 15 years off of the characters in The Graces. And kind of expect them to be moody..slam doors and wear tons of eye makeup.

So...I sort of stepped away from my book schedule today and spent most of my day reading this cozy mystery. Maggie Dove is a mystery writer who hasn't written a book in twenty years. She lives in a sweet town on the Hudson River...teaches Sunday School...you seriously can't get more cozy than that...and has to deal with an obnoxious neighbor who wants to cut down her beloved oak tree. Quirky characters and fun writing made me devour this one! It's at NetGalley if you are interested!

That's all for me today...Den is making dinner tonight and I am sort of relaxing!

Hugs,

Patty

  1. The Graces is one I need to read for sure. Maggie Dove sounds like a good book to curl up with on a rainy day. A good cozy mystery. :) Thanks for sharing. Hope whatever Den made tasted great!

  4. Made me laugh with The Graces summary. I'm still moody and slam doors, LOL. I'm intrigued since you said it was like a young Discovery of Witches.
