Free for all Friday

What is everyone doing this weekend? Do you have plans for this Memorial Day Weekend?

Since it is still raining here in Oregon we don't have any outdoor plans as of yet. I really wish Mother Nature paid attention to the is almost June after all!

One of these years I really want to travel to the Arlington cemetery and place the flags on the grave sites of our fallen heroes. My husband and I are both veterans and we are very grateful for the time and sacrifice of those that have served and are serving today.

Do you have any traditions related to this holiday?

Book Seven: Murder Most Frothy by Cleo Coyle

Oh how I love visiting the Village Blend, but this story took place in the Hampton's this time. It was nice for a change of scenery but I can't wait to be back in New York and the aromas of the Blend.

This book was intriguing from the prologue. I kind of like it when we know a bit of what happens from the beginning. It makes me eager to read quickly to that part of the story. The story twists and turns exposing the greediness and rivalries of the business world. Truly an enjoyable book.

The one character from this story that I would love to see in person is Jim Rand. He sounds so yummy!! Even though Clare has a thing for Detective Quinn I hope to see Clare and him meet up again in a future book.

Book Six: Latte Trouble by Cleo Coyle

A fun return to Greenwich Village and the Village Blend. In this installment we visit Clare , Matt and the gang throwing a swag party for fashion designer Lottie Harmon who has launched her line of Java Jewelry inspired from the rich colors of the beans.

Unfortunately a poisoned latte leads to the murder and the arrest of Tucker, one of Clare's baristas.Clare puts her sleuthing skills to work and tries to help Tucker get out of the tangled web of rivalries in the fashion world. A riveting read.
