This one was good… I do like Anne Perry as a writer and she gets a good feel of the the time period. Not too many twists and turns but I thought the ending was good. Will get this in the mail by next week before Thanksgiving!

Think I may be missing this months #lmpbc #groupa book…. Not sure what book it‘s supposed to be and trying to make sure it isn‘t lost
@Tattooedteacher @Bookwormjillk @BethM

Bookwormjillk Uh oh. What was the last one you had? 2mo
Jerdencon @Bookwormjillk last letter from Juliet was my last one 2mo
Bookwormjillk @Jerdencon so I think Park Avenue Summer should be next? 2mo
See All 17 Comments
BethM Yeah that should be this month bc that‘s mine and you mail to me. 2mo
Tattooedteacher Ok so I just got that a week ago. I‘ll send it on with regrets that I didn‘t read. Can‘t remember who it came from. Jill maybe? 1mo
Tattooedteacher @Jerdencon Denise, confirm that it goes to you please. 1mo
Jerdencon @Tattooedteacher yes it goes to me - but if you want to read it - that‘s fine - I‘m not in a rush - you can send when it‘s done. Just wanted to make sure it wasn‘t lost. 1mo
Bookwormjillk Sorry @Tattooedteacher I just caught up on this. I‘m horrified it got to you so late! I read and mailed that months ago. Did you get the one I sent you at the end of September? Alexander Chee? 1mo
Tattooedteacher @Bookwormjillk Jill can you tell me the title bc I‘m short a book. Can anyone tell us all four titles? 1mo
Bookwormjillk I sent you The Queen of the Night in September. There‘s also The Last Letter From Juliet, Park Avenue Summer, and The Elephant of Belfast which I‘m reading now. 1mo
Bookwormjillk @Tattooedteacher let me know if I should look for tracking. I‘m not positive I have it but I can look. 1mo
Tattooedteacher @Bookwormjillk Ok, so I‘ve gotten all four. Queen of the Night came late and sent it right off. I started The Elephant of Belfast. I read and sent Last Letter and Park Avenue Summer. Pretty sure we‘re all good now. 1mo
Bookwormjillk @Tattooedteacher oh good because I just cleaned my purse and don‘t have any receipts 🤦‍♀️ You don‘t live that far from me. No idea why it‘s taking so long but lesson learned! 1mo
Jerdencon @Tattooedteacher @Bookwormjillk I think I‘m still waiting for park Avenue summer to read and send back to @BethM . Queen of the night was my original book. (edited) 1mo
BethM @Jerdencon who sends to you? Is there tracking? Seems like @Tattooedteacher sends to you? 1mo
Jerdencon I think we are all good now! Park avenue summer came yesterday. @Tattooedteacher @BethM @Bookwormjillk 1mo
BethM Take extra time to read it if you need to! 1mo

Although this book doesn‘t really take place in Israel it highlights the tensions between Palestine and Israel.

Catching up on things - had the second covid vaccine on Saturday and it kicked my butt a little - plus work has been busy!
So for February I met 2/4 goals overall - books and riding the exercise bike. Walking went out the window with a ton of snow and cold and food was just eh...
keeping my goals the same for now-
Read 7 books, exercise bike 4xa week, walk 10 miles a week, and only 2 small junkie foods per day!
