I thought I had another Victorian beach-house tearoom mystery left in the series, but it turns out the next one isn’t available until November. I was not mentally prepared for that. Luckily, it turns out I’d downloaded one of the author’s other books last year, so I’ve decided to give it a try. This is another cozy mystery series, this time featuring a jam maker based at the local farmers market, who solves crimes with her twin brother. No ghosts that I’m aware of, but the author includes recipes, which is something that was sadly missing from the tearoom books.

What are you reading these days?

Cheers,

Today is International Rabbit Day, a day to honour and learn about rabbits, both domestic and wild. In that vein (see what I did there?), I thought I’d post about the most fiendish vampire of all: Bunnicula!

Outwardly appearing like any other pet rabbit, Bunnicula strikes terror in the hearts of other pets as he roams the house in the dead of night, draining vegetables of their vital juices!

Can anything stop Bunnicula? Only time will tell…

Okay, Bunnicula is more fluffy than fiendish, but he’s still one of my favourite vampires (from a cherished children’s book series of the same name).

Apparently Victorian-beach-house tearoom paranormal mysteries are my jam, because I’m starting the third book in this series. In my last Currently Reading post, I mentioned I really liked these covers. Well, I have another confession to make: the silly titles make me giggle. Yes, I have a thing for wordplay, which (thankfully?) tends to come out only in conversation and not in my writing.

It’s the first day of Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere, my favourite season (and not just because you can apparently make a dress from the pretty leaves). My part of the world does Autumn perfectly, with colourful leaves that crunch underfoot, and crisp air tinged with wood smoke, and gourds– so many gourds. There’s an eldritch feel all around that has nothing to do with spooky decorations. And for me, every change of season is an opportunity for a fresh start, so here’s hoping that this season brings the positive changes to the world that we all so desperately need…

What’s your favourite part of the season?

Happy Equinox…

I ended up enjoying the last book I read enough that I felt compelled to go on to the next one in the series. I think that what I like best about these books is the beach setting with the Victorian house that just fell into the protagonist’s lap, along with a teahouse and a resident ghost. Pure wishful thinking for me, and I’m enjoying the fantasy of my own Victorian tearoom beach house as much as the story itself. Anyone who wants to bequeath a house like this to me, I promise I’ll take good care of it, ghosts and all…

(Oh, and I know you’re not supposed to judge them this way, but I also really like the covers on these books.)
