Stealing a small window of reading time before cooking dinner. Now that I am back at work, my reading for pleasure is slowing down.

Tamra Me too, I was just lamenting that to myself this morning sitting in front of the PC. 😫 7d

#NeverForget #RedRoseSeptember

Heartbreaking read. Author‘s extraordinary response to Losing his wife in a terrorist attack. Antoine Leiris lost his wife Helene in the Bataclan theatre in Paris. His response to this horrifying, instant loss was to challenge the perpetrators by not allowing their hate and evil to define the his new life and that of his infant son‘s. A book and a man I will #neverforget

#audiobooks #cozymystery #BunburyVillage
Three short cozy mysteries with well drawn, eclectic village characters. Londoner Alfie McAlister continues what he had thought was to be a peaceful village life in the Cotswolds, but murder keeps rearing its head. Entertaining, short cozy listening.
