@HappyLitsyversary tells me today is my actual 3 Year Litsyversary. My first post was pic I had snapped few days before. Vacationing on South Padre Island hanging out at patio bar at Palms Resort.🍹
Fun Fact: Room we stayed in years ago for our Honeymoon is now where the bar is. They also added on a patio. But the bar is right were the bed used to be. 😉

This was a decent mystery, considering that I'm not a fan of mysteries. I thought Ian Rutledge was an interesting character and liked him enough. I just wanted the crime solving to just get on with it! I think I'll stick to watching my mysteries rather than read them.....for now at least.

Normally wouldn't start w/ #17 of a series but since this was a prequel I made an exception. Interesting juxtaposition between the assassination of Archduke and normal doings of everyday people. Ian is a character you care about. Already starting Book 1.

MrBook Nice review and pairing! Welcome to @Litsy !!! We hope you enjoy your stay, I think you'll like it here 😎👍🏻! 3y
Crinoline_Laphroaig This so fun! Glad I discovered it. 3y
Crinoline_Laphroaig Saw a post on @bookriot descriping as 'if Goodreads and Instagram had the perfect baby'. Couldn't resist! 3y
