After getting book 5 in the Bad Witch series from Netgalley, I went back and bought book 1 (it's free right now) so I've included my review of Blood, Smoke and Mirrors as well.

We Hope for Better Things by Erin Bartels ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

We Hope for Better Things;  It will raise us from the ashes (Detroit City Motto)

"Aunt Nora had been wrong when she said the history was written by the victors, for the victors in one generation may turn to be the villains of the next.  And the only way to get closer to the truth was to refuse to quit looking for it."

Chocolate Cream Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

Last year when I was going through my big binge read of cozy mysteries, I discovered Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen series. It is a fun, foodie series set in Lake Eden, Minnesota. I listened to the first 3 books in audio from my local digital library. I read the first three and then took a break (or maybe there weren't any more audiobooks at the digital library). Whatever the reason, when I found Chocolate Cream Pie Murder at Netgalley, I knew I had to request it.

It's Getting Scot in Here by Suzanne Enoch ~ Review & Excerpt

by MK French

Francesca MacTaggert may have had a whirlwind romance with a Highlander, but she couldn't bear to stay there. She returned to London with her infant daughter, leaving her husband and three sons at his ancestral home with a caveat: if the boys aren't married when her daughter is engaged, she will have to choose English brides for them. None of the MacTaggert boys had known about it until now when their sister Eloise is engaged. The three men arrive in London, and Francesca had chosen Amelia-Rose Baxter for her eldest, Coll. However, he has no interest in her. The youngest, Niall, definitely does have an interest, and that interest is mutual.

Reading Wrap up ~ February 2019

We have made to the end of February. It was an exhausting month for me. I volunteer with a children's basketball program and we had our last Game Day on Saturday followed by the End of Season Celebration on Sunday. I was in charge of gathering door prizes. I didn't want to go the gift card route so I put together a movie night family pack with movies, popcorn, and candy; family game night with a bunch of games and a few snacks; and a make your own ice cream sundae kit. It was a lot of work to gather all the stuff together but I think they turned out well.

Reading life slowed a bit because I was just plain tired. I'm actually pretty pleased that I've read as much as I did this month - thank you audiobooks. Let's take a closer look at what happened at Girl Who Reads and in my reading life.
