Murphy, Murphy: And the Case of Serious Crisis by Keith Hirshland

Winner of Book Talk Radio Book Club - Best Book 2020 OK – there is grammar humor – what more could an editor possibly want?

The Arms of Death (Loch Lonach Mystery Series: Book One) By Maggie Foster

Not what I expected in a good way.  The genre stated Medical Fiction or Amature Sleuths.  However, I see it more like an intense, above the norm cozy.  There are characters you can wrap your brain around, modern issues, and occurrences with a touch of Old World charm. This book had enough science (easily explained), … Continue reading The Arms of Death (Loch Lonach Mystery Series: Book One) By Maggie Foster
