TrishB We‘ll get to it at some point! 7d

Andrew65 @TrishB Yes 😂 7d
EadieB @Andrew65 Never heard of this author. 7d
Velvetfur Oohh I'm interested in this too since it's my city as well 😁 7d
Andrew65 @Velvetfur Perfect then, and as the book is free what is to lose! 7d
Andrew65 @EadieB Me either. Is it free in the US or only the UK? 7d
EadieB @Andrew65 Yes Free in the US too! 7d
Andrew65 @EadieB That‘s good! 7d
EadieB @Andrew65 I got this book from my swap site:
Author: Brian L Porter
Hidden in the shadows of Glastonbury Tor lies an ancient secret. Hired by millionaire Malcolm Capshaw to search for a fabled artifact, Joe Cutler and his team from Strata Survey Systems are drawn into a web of lies, murder and betrayal. — The artifact is revealed to be bogus, and the real purpose of their search is slowly exposed. A menacing presence, in the form of
EadieB an old London crime family, displays an unusual interest in the events in the ancient town where Christianity laid its roots in England.

There, aided by the enigmatic professor Lucius Doberman, Joe and his team must solve the mystery of Glastonbury before the sinister historian Walter Graves makes the discovery that could cost him and the whole team their lives.

A mind-bending mystery for fans of The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons
Andrew65 @EadieB Sounds very promising. 3.81 rating. 7d
Velvetfur @Andrew65 Woohoo! Thank you for the heads up about it being free 👍😊 x 7d

Crazeedi @Andrew65 thanks Andrew, I'm going to see if I can get it too ! 6d
Crazeedi @EadieB the book you describe here sounds really good!! 6d

#SoaringScores #CatchUp
#TheHunting in this series is done both by the FBI Special Agent & his team for the serial (really more vigilante) killer known as “The Huntress” & her hunting for evil & those are overtaken by it to kill.

The Hunter‘s (& Huntress) Moon is the first full moon after the harvest moon so it was just recently in the sky.🌕🤓

CrowCAH All the murders must take place in a time with a “moon”! 4w

Cinfhen Thanks @Andrew65 ❣️❣️❣️❣️ 4w
gradcat @Cinfhen Hiya! I know, I‘ve been missing in action on the music prompts! One reason is that Google changed the way I do image searches, and I couldn‘t figure it out (tech dinosaur, me!), but @Andrew65 told me how to do it, so I figure I‘ll jump back in in November. How are you? How is your husband? Hope you guys are well! ♥️ 3w
Cinfhen Glad you‘re alright @gradcat all is well on this side of the world 🌍 thanks for asking. Looking forward to seeing your posts xx 3w
gradcat @Cinfhen Glad all is well for you over there. Now I just have to find the November prompts! 😂 3w

#SoaringScores #catchup
I have about 5 prompts to catch up on this weekend so I will do them in no particular order.
When I think of a #TimeBombTown I think of the hidden Rockton, tucked away in the Canadian Yukon & filled with people hiding from something. It always seems like a ticking time bomb is waiting to go off there. (And yes, I use this series a lot! 😉) Waiting for book #5.

Hooked_on_books I love this series! 1mo
Cinfhen Never heard of this series before....how about you guys my #seriesSquad @EadieB @Andrew65 @TrishB @gradcat 1mo
TrishB @Cinfhen not heard of it but will check out 👍🏻 1mo

@Ddzmini Hiya Danielle! Would you like to play? You simply post a favorite cover for seven consecutive days—no descriptions/explanations necessary—and then tag a friend to invite to play each day. I hope to see your covers very soon! ♥️

EadieB @gradcat Wow! Nice one! 2mo
gradcat @EadieB Thank you! This is yet *another* detective series, #seriessquad ! 😂 2mo
EadieB @gradcat I do own some of these books! 2mo
See All 15 Comments
gradcat @EadieB Okay, I am now convinced that you own all of the detective series novels ever written!! 😂🤣😂 2mo
EadieB @gradcat I think I do because I had 10,000 books when I had to stop buying books because there was no more room in my house. I would only pay .50 or $1.00 for each book. I now have at least 5,000 and still need to downsize. 2mo
Andrew65 I need an X author for my audiobook #LitsyAtoZ, this could be perfect for that. Great cover. 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Eadie is long renowned for the national collection. 😂 @EadieB (edited) 2mo
Ruthiella @EadieB If I had lotto $ I would buy you a separate house. 😬 @CarolynM too. I support your habit! 2mo
EadieB @Ruthiella Oh you are so nice! That would be wonderful! 2mo
Ddzmini Yea I‘ll do it 🙌🏽😝 starting tomorrow 2mo
gradcat @EadieB Yes—that‘s the answer—another house! 10,000 books is, in fact, a library!! 😂😂 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Glad I could help! This is the second in the series, the first one is ... in case you‘d like to begin at the beginning. ♥️ 2mo
gradcat @Ddzmini So glad you‘re doing this...looking forward to your covers! ♥️ 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Book 1 is the book I‘ll start with. 2mo

gradcat @EadieB By the way, Eadie...not to be too big of a nag, but did you check your email today? 📲 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Hi there, Andrew. How are you feeling? 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Today not been the best day, but not the worst either. Getting by. Endoscopy on Saturday and then ultrasound the following Saturday. Been a bit improved recently (until dip today) but have to be off acid reducing medication this week ready for the test on Saturday and leading to a few issues today. But hey life goes on 😊 School keeping me busy which helps during the day. Losing weight but that‘s because eradicated most fats from diet. 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks for asking. 😊👍 2mo
EadieB @gradcat I forgot my password to get into my mail so I need to find where I wrote it down. 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Don‘t you hate passwords! 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I'm so tired of passwords. I have to change them all the time and I can't remember where and if I wrote it down and which words I capitalized. Now I can't get my mail. 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 First, I can‘t believe they do those tests on the weekend, but I‘m betting that‘s good for you—keep you from having to miss teaching, right? Second, you have to stop the acid reducers? Is that so that they can better tell how bad/good it is? I don‘t remember having to do that, but I can very well understand that stopping those meds would cause some irritation. Did the docs tell you to eliminate fats? Just curious...your docs may be ⬇️ 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 ⬆️ Cont. slightly ahead of ours. I read abstracts on gastro problems, and very often the cutting-edge stuff is coming from over there. I‘m really hoping they identify and then fix the problem for you. I‘ll be thinking of you and hoping for speedy recovery! 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB I‘m forever having to reset my hotmail password! 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I guess I will have to delete my mail account and set up a new one. 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks 😊 I‘ve been trying to reduce my cholesterol levels and saturated fats (genetics) but seemed as after eating chips / fries pains seemed to be worse. Could be wrong in this and could be coincidence but since eliminating Chips and higher fat foods pains eased. Of course of gall stones mat just be in a lull period. Reading online seemed to indicating reducing high fat foods and processed food, both lead to 👇 (edited) 2mo
gradcat @EadieB Well...isn‘t this a bit of a mess? 😂🤣😂 I sent you a couple of ebooks for your birthday featuring my favorite detective (I seriously want to marry him), but I‘m pretty sure you have to get into your email to retrieve them. Whoops! 😂😂 Let me know if you don‘t get them, and I‘ll see what I can do on this end. Sorry! 2mo
EadieB @gradcat I'm setting up a new mail account so I'll let you know if I succeed. I have to write down all the settings as I always mess it up. 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat 👆higher levels of bile being released that can increase pain levels. More intense biliary colic with higher bile levels released. To be ho nest willing to try anything! Could be following myself because at moment biliary colic and gall stones is only a hypothesis. 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Can‘t you just hit the forgotten password option (if one) to reset password? 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Didn't get that option. Just said to check my settings. 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Told to stop meds as gives a clearer view of what‘s happening. (edited) 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB That‘s a shame. 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Oh, I really don‘t like those tests that you‘re having, but really it‘s the colonoscopy I truly hate. None of it hurts, so don‘t worry about that if you haven‘t gone through this before—it‘s just the prep that I hate. I hope you can get some relief, and very soon...I‘d hate for this to linger while you‘re now back at school. 😟 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Colonoscopy not great, but then neither is endoscopy but got to be got through. Had both of these before. 2mo
gradcat @EadieB Ok, Eadie, keep me posted and I‘ll check back with Amazon to change your address if need be. I should have just gotten your address and sent you regular books, but I didn‘t have your address and I didn‘t want to miss your birthday. That‘s what I get for doing everything at the last minute! 2mo
EadieB @gradcat The address will be the same as I am only changing the password. 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Well, at least you know what you‘re in for. Good luck with all of it...I hate these types of problems, but mine started when I was 16... so I guess I‘m used to it (sort of). Take care of yourself—eating right will probably go a long way to helping you, no matter what it is. ♥️ 2mo
Andrew65 Thanks will let you know how it goes. 💓 @gradcat Always had digestive issues of some kind from teenage years and regularly suffer from IBS. (edited) 2mo
gradcat @EadieB Oh? Okay, I just misunderstood. I hope you‘re able to retrieve them. You read so quickly that I thought you might like to jump into another series! 🚨 🚨 🚨 #seriessquad 😂 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Okay, please do. I‘ll be thinking about you. 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 & @EadieB I‘m going to get supper...will check back later. It‘s so nice chatting with you two—check out the wordy wordiness above!! 😂 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Hope supper was good, always good to chat. 😊 2mo
EadieB @gradcat I got my email fixed. I had to contact Comcast and they reset my password. I got the ebooks you sent me from Amazon. I did not open them as I have already read all the books in this series. Thanks so much as it is the thought that counts. Maybe you can contact Amazon and they will credit you. 2mo
gradcat @EadieB Oh, I‘m so sorry! I tried so hard to find something you hadn‘t yet read—I even looked back at your posts! I‘m sorry you had to go through all of that trouble...are you sure there‘s nothing else you would like? Again, sorry 😐 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Backatcha! 2mo
EadieB @gradcat Can‘t think of anything at the moment and I hope you can get your money back. Thanks so much for the thought! 2mo
gradcat No problem, Eadie...I just regret that you had to go through that ridiculous process. ♥️ 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat I‘m intrigued, what Series was it? @EadieB 2mo

(Day 10 - #WithMyLittleStickOfBlackpoolRock)

*I don‘t have a book (forgive me!), but this show from the BBC keeps knocking around in my brain, given the prompt. This is when I fell truly in love with the BBC. The show absolutely amazed me when I first saw it in 2005. We weren‘t doing musical tv shows at that time, and I was thoroughly gobsmacked—I love, love, loved it!! Anyway, it‘s about Blackpool, and there is rock (‘n roll)!

arlenefinnigan Ha ! Nice 😉 2mo

gradcat @Cinfhen @arlenefinnigan @TrishB 🚨 🚨 🚨 #seriessquad You know he played Tom Thorne in the televised version of Mark Billingham‘s novels, right? 2mo
Jerdencon That show look right up my alley!
TrishB @Cinfhen he‘s from Liverpool ❤️ his career started with a drama called One Summer which is an iconic Scouse drama from my teen years. Everyone watched it, brings a tear to my eye thinking about it. 2mo
Branwen This is one of my favorite shows of all time! I used to watch it obsessively! 😍 2mo
gradcat @Branwen Me too! It was so much different from anything else on TV at the time...I was glued!! 📺 👀 2mo
Branwen @gradcat Right?! But it set so many unrealistic expectations for me...now I want all my tv shows to have songs you can sing along to! 😂 2mo

This is Book 13 in the Project Series and takes in #Syria. I do love the Project Series, a covert counter terrorism group, that also often incorporates a bit of history and treasure hunting. These are quick and often exciting reads with action, and a great group of characters. I think the author is self published (or was). I definitely recommend these and the first one can usually be downloaded from Amazon free.

Rarely see a post for these.

Andrew65 This is the first book in the series. 3mo

Cinfhen Yes!!! Absolutely tagging the #SeriesSquad @TrishB @EadieB @gradcat 😜 3mo
TrishB Interesting 👍🏻 @Cinfhen 3mo
TrishB @Cinfhen the first one is free on kindle. That‘s made my day.... 3mo
Andrew65 @TrishB It is also worth keeping an eye on the series because on occasions other books in the series have been made available free for short periods. 3mo
TrishB I definitely will do 👍🏻 I scroll kindle quite a lot....I know hard to believe! 3mo
Andrew65 @TrishB 😂 Don‘t think you‘re alone there! 🤔 3mo
Cinfhen Who could pass on free @TrishB ?!???! 3mo
TrishB @Cinfhen definitely not me! 3mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Nice handoff! Another series, wow! Okay, I‘m quite tardy with Aimee LeDuc number 2, but I‘m just about done. Unforeseen events got in my way! 3mo
Andrew65 @gradcat I know that feeling. Have you enjoyed Aimee LeDuc? 3mo
gradcat @Andrew65 You know? To my surprise, I really have enjoyed the books. They are not at all what I was expecting. I suppose the difference for me is in the situations she gets into—these are not straight-up mysteries—more danger than I would‘ve thought. What about you? Tell the truth now....😊 3mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Overall I enjoyed it but not as much as the first one. She is a good character and they are well written, but the overarching theme was not as enjoyable or as engaging as the first one which I loved. I just wish they were easier to get hold of over here. 3mo
gradcat @Andrew65 I guess I didn‘t realize that...so sorry! I have to use a Kindle, so is it possible for me to gift it to you? I could check if you like. Also, finally I‘ve finished...review coming soon (I have out-of-town guests—just another delaying event!)....☺️ 3mo
Andrew65 @gradcat That‘s the strange thing about Kindle. In the US you can gift books but in the U.K. it won‘t allow us to do that to receive books from other countries. Thanks for offering though. 😊 My library only has one in the series, but at least all but three of them are available as audiobooks on Audible. 3mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Sorry—I wish that could‘ve worked, but thanks for checking on it—now I know. Is everyone still interested in reading the books? I don‘t want people to feel obliged. Anyway, since I‘ve never done a buddy read, I‘m not really sure of the strictures and structure, as it were. Houseguests leave tomorrow, so I should have my review up by Monday...crossing fingers! 3mo

Book 3 in the Tony Hill / Carol Jordan Series, one of my favourite series. This is an important book in the series and experiences for Carrol in this one changed her (understandably), and impacted on decisions she made in future books.
Another #Temptation as book 11 is published later this week, can‘t wait to see how Val built on life changing events for Tony in book 10. Strongly recommend this series. ❤️

squirrelbrain Val McDermid has curated the Harrogate Crimewriting Festival (in my hometown) but I‘ve never read any of her books... another one to add to the list! 3mo
gradcat Fantastic book choice here—I loved this series! 3mo
gradcat @squirrelbrain That is so cool—I‘m jealous! I read her mostly in the 80s and 90s—she was much more prolific then—but she still puts out a book about every other year or so. The series that @Andrew65 has posted is one of her best, and I have been rewatching the TV adaptations on Acorn (guilty pleasure). I hope you get a chance to read some of her work! ♥️ 3mo

Andrew65 @squirrelbrain Thoroughly recommend the Tony Hill ; Carol Jordan Series. Book 2 is one of my all-tine favourite books. Jacko Vance, some character in that book! @gradcat (edited) 3mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Me too. 😍 Looking forward to getting to book 11 when it is published. (edited) 3mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Yes, and it just happens to come out here on the same day we‘re supposed to start the second Cara Black! 3mo
squirrelbrain I‘ll keep an eye out for the first one in the series @andrew65 @gradcat - I just checked and it‘s not on offer at the moment.... 3mo

Andrew65 @gradcat So do I, a constant battle to keep my record up to date on Librarything. Often playing catch up and forgetting where i‘m up to in series. Book 2 of the Aimee LeDuc Series tomorrow. (edited) 3mo
