Magic and mystery together — a great combination! I loved the MC and her quirky family, and the way food, tradition, and legend were woven into the story. The mystery was a good one, even if the culprit was a touch obvious. I will agree with others that there were a couple too many branching offs, but then again, the major theme of the book WAS misdirection. Overall, I enjoyed this, and I‘d definitely read more from this author.

Doyle really is the master of the short story and I‘m glad we‘ve switched to reading his short form work for now. This one was such a treat! 🕵🏻‍♂️ #noplacelikeholmes @dabbe @Cuilin

Cuilin Agreed, 👍 22h

I didn‘t walk today because I found myself just too tired to do so — probably leftover from COVID — but I did finish The Ghost Orchid. I ended up liking it more than I thought I would because it took some unexpected turns. My favorite part, though, involved a case of Alex‘s that was completely unrelated to the murder.

bookaholic1 Love this series...Alex and Milo are my all time favorites 16h
KathyWheeler @bookaholic1 I love them too. 16h

I finished this audiobook during our evening walk. I liked it, but there is something odd about the author being a main character in their own novel. I'm not saying it doesn't work, but there were moments that took me out of the story and made me think about what really happened, specifically where film productions were concerned. Overall, I enjoyed the mystery, even if the Watson-Holmes archetype was slightly too obvious.

1. Of course it would have to be Sherlock Holmes. I would love to have a case for him that we would discuss over dinner. #benedictorjeremyplease
2. Jamie Fraser from THE OUTLANDER series. #hubbahubba 💓
3. Rhet Butler from GONE WITH THE WIND. I'd try to make him “give a damn.“ 🤩

I'm continuing to enjoy #NancyDrewBR hosted by @Librarybelle. This installment, in which Nancy helps a friend whose inn seems to be the target of malicious acts, was full of danger and suspense.

#gottacatchemall @PuddleJumper (prompt 14: “Combee: Flowers“)
#52bookclub24 (prompt 21: “Written by a ghostwriter“)

Librarybelle Excellent choice for ghost writer! Why did I not think of that??? 😂 2d
Bluebird @Librarybelle me too! Will correct that now! I‘m a bit behind, but reading these too. Fun to go back to books I loved when i was growing up! 2d
kwmg40 @Librarybelle @Bluebird Yes, that was a tough prompt for me too, until I started reading this book and realized it would match! 21h

Vera Wong finds a dead body in her tea shop. Since the police don't seem to be taking it seriously, she decides to investigate, starting with some unexpected visitors to the tea shop as her suspects.

It was funny, but mostly variations on a single joke - Vera's ability to cow or coax people round her into doing what she wanted. Not as good as the Aunties books

Mahalo @Eggs for the #WondrousWednesday tag! 🤗

1️⃣ All time: Elizabeth Bennet, P&P. Lately Charlotte Holmes from tagged book/series

2️⃣ All time: Inigo Montoya & Fezzik, The Princess Bride. Lately Lord Ingram (Ash) from tagged book/series.

3️⃣ Currently obsessed with the Lady Sherlock series- tagged book is one of my current reads. Also listening to The Boy Who Cried Bear (new) Haven‘s Rock series + Litsy readalongs.

Have you played yet?

Eggs I read Enola Holmes series last summer - is this a different sister of Sherlock? 2d
DebinHawaii @Eggs Actually she‘s a “disgraced” member of the ton who assumes the name of Sherlock Holmes & solves crime & sometimes acts as his sister. It‘s great! Start with this one 2d
Eggs @DebinHawaii Thanks for the info 🥰 I hope to start this series this year😊 21h
