Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Used Book Sale
A Rose From The Dead (A Flower Shop Mystery) by Kate Collins
Abby is a law school dropout who bought herself a flower shop in her home town. Mysteries and murders tend to follow.
I found this at my library and was thrilled because I had found the first five in the set there last fall. I think there is a good chance it's from the same person. I'll just have to wait for her/him to keep reading and donating these books so I can buy them and read the whole series. I'll be waiting!

  20. Thank you for stopping by the mailbox this week. I read 'Everyone is beautiful' last year and really liked it. I just finished 'Afraid' earlier this week and you'll need an iron cast stomach to get through it. I liked it but then I'm a fan of horror. I can't watch but I can read it. :-)
