Out Like A Lamb… Rainy April Cozy Reads!

Hi All!

I can hardly believe that it’s the end of March already.  As cliche as it sounds, time seems to be flying and I honestly feel like it was just Christmas!

Speaking of time flying…

I’m going to cut to the chase, I promised a new free Jennifer Temple Short story, Body in the Begonias, for April 1st. I’m going to be missing that deadline. I will say that I am 3/4 of the way through and it’s just longer than I planned it to be. (Yay more book for you!) I also have been approached by a few editors, and I will be reaching out to them for prices and timelines. The book IS coming, just not on Monday!

Remember, you’ll only have access to the book if you are a subscriber to my newsletter.

It’s going to be hard to get any reading or writing done this weekend though… Where I live, it’s going to be in the 70’s and I’m elated.  My chickens are excited that it’s getting warmer as well. They’re happily laying eggs again, and enjoying the extended time free ranging each evening.

What are your weekend plans?

If you’re looking for a book to read while enjoying the warmer weather, I have a few more recommendations this week!

A witch has vanished.

The only clue to her whereabouts is a threatening letter and a gory trail that screams foul play.

It’s a race against time to find the missing woman and discover who is using their poison pen to turn the residents of Wormwood against one another.

The town’s secrets are about to be revealed, and the truth is more twisted than anyone could have imagined.

Happy Friday All!

Welcome new subscribers and happy SPRING as well.

Although it’s been rainy where I live, the warmer weather and the flowers in early bloom are giving me life!

In case you missed It, last week, I talked about making my Irish Soda Bread. I split one batch into two delicious loaves and enjoyed every slice. We also successfully built a leprechaun trap. My kids had a blast making it. I posted photos of all of this on Instagram.

My free weekend went amazingly well. I made it into the top 20 of the Cozy category, and into the top 50 in the overall store. I’m overwhelmed by all of the positive reviews on Goodreads and Amazon. Thank you to each one of you who took the time to do that for me!

I’m still working on my (FREE) short story “Body in the Begonias”  my original editor fell through so It may be a little later than promised. Just know, it’s still in the works!

In the meantime, I’ve curated some excellent reads for you this week! Please let me know what you think!
