#RedRoseSeptember
Growing up near Brighton, every Friday night we had a #Chippytea picked up by my dad on his way home from work, and eaten straight from the newspaper at the kitchen table, dowsed in lots of onion vinegar (the vinegar from the picked onion jar)😋🐟📰
So in honor of my dad, this is the first book in his favorite local detective series, still going strong at book #26! I‘ll read it #oneday, seeing as it‘s set where I‘m from.😊

Cathythoughts Brilliant post 👍🏻♥️ 1mo
Ms_T Lots of nostalgia for you there! Great post 😃 1mo
Cinfhen Awwww, I‘m missing home for you❤️I‘d love to visit you in Brighton and hang with your dad 😁 1mo

EadieB @Cinfhen I‘ve read that one and getting ready to read book 2. 1mo
KarenUK @cinfhen ..... now that would be lovely! 💕 1mo
Cinfhen Wouldn‘t it !?!?!?! (edited) 1mo
gradcat @KarenUK & @Cinfhen Great Post! I‘ve read the first three of them, but then I guess I got sidetracked. I can‘t believe there are 26!! I had no idea! ♥️ (edited) 1mo
Crazeedi @Cinfhen @gradcat @EadieB @Andrew65 @TrishB @KarenUK great post, and I haven't read this series! 1mo
TrishB Lovely post ❤️ I am up to date in this series @Cinfhen 🎉🎉 1mo
Andrew65 Love this book series, one of my favourites. Unfortunately as currently suffering with gall bladder issues cannot have fish and chips and I so love them, and especially by the sea! 1mo
Andrew65 @Crazeedi @gradcat @EadieB @TrishB @KarenUK @Cinfhen Unfortunately I am totally up to date on this series. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 so the problem is your gall bladder? 1mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Poor you! 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB It looks like that! Testing for biliary colic and gall stones! Which are both affecting the liver. Did second set of blood tests this week today, got another blood test next week. Waiting for ultra sound scan date and got endoscopy next Saturday so feeling a bit sorry for myself, not to mention the pain. 😔 1mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks, but possibly feeling too sorry for myself! At least when at work kept busy and keeps my mind off it. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 So sorry to hear that you have to go through all of those tests etc. Not fun! Hope they solve your problem and you are feeling better soon! 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes, fingers crossed, and thanks. Hope they can solve it quickly. Not the best thing on the first week of a school year! 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Definitely not! Good that you have your deputy to help you. But bad that she is so new and probably needs your direction. 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Thankfully so far just been missing for small bits of the day for tests. Just not as far on as I‘d like to be. Better now than last year. (edited) 1mo
LeahBergen Yum!! I‘m craving a chippy tea now! 1mo
Crazeedi @Andrew65 oh man that is no fun, I had that and needed up have gall bladder removed. Hope you find some answers 1mo
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Thanks, definitely agree about being no fun! Just in waiting game for scan at moment. Apparently urgent only means likely to be some time in the next two weeks! 1mo
gradcat @Andrew65 I hope you get seen to sooner rather than later...isn‘t that painful? 😣 1mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks. Yes! Although pain going up and down. Bigger problem is what can develop from it. 🤞 Eating a very bland diet which will hopefully be less painful. 1mo

Finished book #3 of my looong chronic migraine day. Book #26 out of my goal of 12 for the #BookFitnessChallenge #BFC @wanderinglynn . I've only got 123 steps all day and it's 2:45 pm. At least I have Saga to keep me company, and book 3 already borrowed and at the ready. 👍

OrangeMooseReads Hope you feel better soon. Migraines suck! 4mo

Book #26: What is generally considered to be the sequel to The Iliad, the story of the end of the Trojan War continues after a short break in time. Written by the ancient Greek poet Homer, this story takes place at the end of the Trojan War as one of the war heroes, Odysseus, is trying to make his way home. However, after angering the god Poseidon...

4th book. Book starts out with a corpse found in the driver's seat of a cab. Other bodies which have been dug up are also being found. An act of blackmail also leads to murder and Thomas Pitt is beside himself trying to find out what is going on. Aunt Vespasian makes a 2nd appearance and tries to help Charlotte and Thomas with this baffling mystery. We get another look at Victorian social life and the child labor laws. Great read from Anne Perry.

DGRachel I really enjoyed the early books in this series. 1y
EadieB @DGRachel How far did you get? 1y
See All 13 Comments
EadieB @DGRachel That‘s pretty far as of 2018 there are 33 in the series. Are you going read any more? 1y
DGRachel Honestly, probably not. I stopped because the plot lines became consistently annoying and I wasn‘t enjoying them anymore. I was tempted by the blurb on the latest one, but I don‘t know. My TBR is already longer than I can get through in my lifetime. 😂 1y
EadieB @DGRachel I can understand that if you weren‘t enjoying them anymore. Too many good books out there TBR. 1y
TrishB @DGRachel I feel most series start to hit a plateau between 15-20 books!! 1y
EadieB @TrishB I would have to agree and when the plots start to go bad then I feel it‘s time for the author to move on. 1y
DGRachel @TrishB I agree. A lot of series seem to fizzle out around there, either becoming repetitive or just generally losing quality. I wonder if I tried to get back into this one, if I would feel differently about the plots now or if I would be just as annoyed. I always appreciate authors who can keep long running series feeling fresh and exciting. 1y
TrishB @EadieB @DGRachel worst for this was the Scarpetta series - Cornwell- went embarrassingly down hill like a bad soap opera! 1y
EadieB @TrishaB Never read that series because I heard only the beginning of the series was good. 1y
DGRachel @TrishB I think I only read the first couple of them back when the series first started. I can‘t remember why I quit, but I don‘t think I read more than the first two or three. 1y

MaleficentBookDragon This book stayed with me the most since high school. It is the book that made me realize that one single moment can change everything; one small rash action can do so much damage. 1y
