It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

The week seems to have sped by. We had good weather on the whole so that helped. I sewed and quilted of course. Now I need to get out and get some things planted in the garden. One row of beans are up but I need to plant another and sow some carrots etc. How did I ever manage before I retired!

What I finished reading last week:

Two good reads. Jennifer Ashley is certainly keeping me interested in her series, I love it and gave this one five stars.  And I finished listening to Dance Away With Me, which was a reread via audio this time. Still five stars!

What I am reading now:

A library book that arrived. Just a few chapters in. Not too sure so far but will keep going.

Up next:

Continuing with rereads I am now listening to Somewhere between Luck and Trust. #2 in the Goddess Anonymous series by Emilie Richards. I first read it back in 2013 so can easily now enjoy it again.

The Tuesday Night Survivors’ Club

The Tuesday Night Survivor's Club

Published: Kensington
Date: 14th June 2022
Source: Publisher via NetGalley

Two things got Rarity Cole through her breast cancer treatments: friends and books. Now cancer-free, Rarity is devoting her life to helping others find their way through the maze to healing. She’s opened a bookstore focusing on the power of healing—Eastern medicine, Western medicine, the healing power of food, the power of meditation, and the importance of developing a support community. To that end, she’s also started the Tuesday Night Survivors book club. With its openness to new-age communities, Sedona, Arizona, is the perfect fit for Rarity’s bookstore and the tightly knit group.

But their therapeutic unity is disrupted when one of their members suddenly goes missing. Martha has always kept to herself, never opening up much of her personal life to the group. Now she’s nowhere to be found. With her car abandoned on a trail and her dog left with a friend, Rarity is sure something terrible had happened—but will she be able to uncover Martha’s secrets before it’s too late?

The first book in a new Cosy Mystery series and it gets off to a great start. We have a bookseller – Rarity who wants to start a book club of locals who have survived cancer. She has opened her shop next door to her best friend Sam’s crystal shop.

And so the group begins but is it a book club or a sleuthing club? I was a bit disappointed the book club never really focused on the books but they sure did focus when one of their group is murdered.

As Rarity settles in to her new town, she finds she wants and gets a dog, and they quickly form a bond. As well there are a couple of men in the picture, Sam has her eye on one and Rarity on the other. Just as well! It will be interesting to see how that all pans out.

The mystery is good, at first I could see four suspects, but they get narrowed down and one towards the end looks just a tad more suspicious.

A promising start to a new series. I’ll be watching for the next one!

Greetings to you all. We have just come off a long weekend holiday, with Friday taking the day this time. It is Matariki here, a Maori celebration of a set of stars showing in the sky, so its counted as the Maori New Year. For the first time we have celebrated it as a nation. I really like the idea and hope it really becomes embedded in our country as a top celebration.

On a less delighted note, Goodreads has been giving me grief and will not let me take any actions like currently reading, read etc or post reviews. I contacted them and they put me in a queue. Then sent me an email asking for feedback. Well of course it was a thumbs down because nothing was fixed… so far. It’s a bummer because I actually use GR all the time. Thank goodness for this blog where I keep a record too.
