In the absence of knitting I have filled my time with reading copious amounts of books that I've downloaded onto my Kindle.
One the first day of each month a plethora of books are released for free from hundreds of authors and all genres. How wonderful!
"Minneapolitan Mira James has been taking it easy since college graduation--too easy. Due to a dead-end job and a cheating boyfriend, the Twin Cities have lost their charm, and Mira decides to begin a new life in rural Battle Lake. Right away she is offered jobs as an assistant librarian and part-time reporter, and falls into an unexpected romance with a guy who seems to be the perfect man until he turns up dead between the reference stacks her tenth day on the job.
Anxious to learn more about the man who had briefly stolen her heart, Mira delves into the hidden mysteries of Battle Lake, including a old land deed with ancient Ojibwe secrets, an obscure octogenarian crowd with freaky social lives, and a handful of thirtysomething high school buddies who hold bitter, decades-old grudges. Mira soon discovers that unknown dangers are concealed under the polite exterior of this quirky small town, and revenge is a tator-tot hotdish best served cold.
A hip, humorous, and gripping account of small-town murder, this novel is the first in a series of cozies featuring Mira James, an urban woman with rural Minnesota roots."
I found the book to be a pleasant escape with hiliarious and realistic charcters that kept things interesting and made me wish I could live in Battle Lake. Perfect for summer reading.
Even though the odds of a single person being connected to a murder every month is highly unrealistic unless you are a Cop, I find myself wanting another installment!
