Murder and Mayhem

Hi Gang,

A quick note to let you know about a book review Mary just received. Todd Fonesco runs a site called Review My Book On Amazon and was kind enough to give Mary's latest book, A Trip to the Water's Edge, a read. And guess what? She received four out of five stars!

Here's an excerpt from his review:

Trip to the Water’s Edge – Murder and Mayhem Mattie Mitchell Style!

Rating: 4 of 5

"For those who like a light hearted humorous murder mystery, check out “A Trip to the Water’s Edge”. The characters are a hoot and you’ll wonder what Mattie and Clare will get into next!"

Save the Date!

Just wanted you all to know that my instigator, Mary, will be participating in the Spartanburg Library’s Local Author Day event on May 9. Come on out and meet Mary, chat about her books, and maybe even buy one (or two, or three). More details to come as we get closer to the date. You can also get info from the library’s social media options of Facebook and Twitter.

Speaking of libraries, be sure to check out Mary’s latest musings on her volunteer efforts with the Henderson County Library. Can’t think of a worthier cause.

Happy New Year!

Don’t know about you, but 2011 just flew by. And from Thanksgiving until now, well, I feel like I barely caught my breath. Between hosting out-of-town visitors, holiday parties, shopping for gifts, and ringing in the New Year, it has all felt a bit overwhelming.

Guess part of it has to do with the fact that I’m the kind of girl who likes her routines. Whether it’s going to aerobics, my garden club, or homeowner meetings, there’s a certain comfort in the predictable. Ever feel that way or am I just a crazy woman? At least now that all the festivities are over, I can jump back into doing all the things I really love. And one of those things is posting to this blog.

I know, I know, I said I would be better at sharing all the news going on around here, including the latest exploits with Clare and what’s going on with Scotty and Jed. But believe me, even though I’m not one to making a bunch of resolutions, this is one thing I feel strongly about.

So, I hope you all are ready to do some serious reading in the days and weeks ahead.


I mean it.

You can take my word for it.
