Yarn Along

Joining Little Room of Rachell‘s weekly Yarning Along.

This weeks two reads are courtesy of Stefanie at Wooly Cakes and Wooden Spoons.

Each Monday she posts what she and her family are reading and listening to.

She has recommended two cozy mystery series and this week I finished one and started a second.

First up, Buried in a Bog (County Cork, #1) by Sheila Connolly.

Honoring the wish of her late grandmother, Maura Donovan visits the small Irish village where her Gran was born—though she never expected to get bogged down in a murder mystery. Nor had she planned to take a job in one of the local pubs, but she finds herself excited to get to know the people who knew her Gran.

In the pub, she’s swamped with drink orders as everyone in town gathers to talk about the recent discovery of a nearly one-hundred-year-old body in a nearby bog. When Maura realizes she may know something about the dead man—and that the body’s connected to another, more recent, death—she fears she’s about to become mired in a homicide investigation. After she discovers the death is connected to another from almost a century earlier, Maura has a sinking feeling she may really be getting in over her head…

I enjoyed this book.

I felt this set up the background for the series, much more a cozy read rather than a cozy mystery.

I really could picture the Irish country side as the story progressed.

I look forward to reading about the gang at Sullivan’s.

Next, I’ve just started On What Grounds (Coffeehouse Mystery, #1) by Cleo Coyle.

Introducing a delightful new series featuring Clare Cosi, manager of the historic Village Blend coffeehouse…

Clare arrives at work to discover the assistant manager dead in the back of the store, coffee grounds strewn everywhere. Two detectives investigate. But when they find no sign of forced entry or foul play, they deem it an accident. Still, Clare is not convinced. And after the police leave, Clare can’t help wondering…If this was an act of murder, is she in danger?

Sometimes, a cute cozy mystery is just what my over taxed brain needs.
My most recent project was a Mother’s Day gift for my  mom.

I made her a tote bag using some fun fabric that is made up of subway maps from London, Rome, New York, etc.
I used the pattern from my Sewing 100 class that I took a few weeks ago.
This week, I start Sewing 101-Pattern Reading at The Creative Sewing Studio.
I am hopeful that after taking this class I’ll be brave enough to tackle the all the patterns I have for Miss ME’s dresses, aprons for me and stuffed animals for charity.
Have a good week!
