Spring flowers and good books...





It's been a beautiful sunny day here in Teesdale, just the right day for a spot of gardening. Hence the photos, pansies are some of my favourites and they really looked their best in the midday sunshine. So the afternoon was spent doing a spot of weeding , this was after my trip to the library. I was looking for non-fiction sewing books but they seem to be scarce so the crime novels it had to be----

'August Heat' by Andrea Camilleri. A new author to me but the sleeve sounded good --'A secret apartment and a grisly find in an old trunk are just the beginning...'

'The Guilt of Innocents' by Candace Robb.Here is a good storyteller. The year 1372, York, a drowned man but was it an accident. Owen Archer, the Bishop's Captain solves the mystery.

'Day the floods came' by Agatha Raisin by M.C. Beaton. The body of a woman dressed in a wedding dress is found floating down the river. Agatha to the 'rescue'.

I also got an audio book, 'Agatha Raisin and the Vicious Vet'(just the right reading for a farmer's wife, lol!)

So when I will start these I don't know as I am in the middle of another sewing project for my grandaughter and there still is the odd lamb to be born and sheep to feed...

Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend!

It's been a lovely sunny day here in north Northumberland too.

I am surprised by this coincidence - I'm writing a post for tomorrow about which book to choose from the newbooks magazine and one of them is August Heat! I've read one of Camilleri's books before and enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on this book.

It's been lovely to have the sun out the last couple of days, was even quite warm at times. Looking forward to seeing you latest project when it's done

We seem to have similiar taste in books as I love Candace Robb too. Have you read any by Alys Clare? If not I can recommend them - they are in a similiar vein to Robb's. I haven't tried the Agatha Raisin ones yet but I think I will now.

I love both Candace Robb and Alys Clare's mysteries. I also like Bernard Knight (12th century) and Michael Jecks (14th century).
