Hey Gals!  Here's a blurb about yet another historical fiction series you might enjoy...

The Twelfth Night Murder
(A Restoration Mystery)

3rd Book In Series
A Berkley Prime Mystery
The Berkley Publishing Group (September 2, 2014)
Published by The Penguin Group
Trade Paperback: 320 pages
ISBN-13: 978-0425255612
E-Book File Size: 1461 KB

As The New Globe Players bring laughter to audiences with their production of Shakespeare’s comedy Twelfth Night, Suzanne Thornton must bring justice to the tragic victim of a brutal murder…

When the body of a young boy—murdered, mutilated, and clothed in women’s attire—is found under London Bridge, Constable Pepper believes him to be a member of The New Globe Players, one of the actors who specialize in women’s parts.

He is not, but Suzanne, summoned to make an identification, does recognize him from an encounter in the tavern the night before—as the alluring doxy who caught the eye of more than a few of the patrons. Suzanne suspects that whoever hired him for the night reacted violently when his true sex was discovered.

Kathy...I too have enjoyed reading the Darling Dahlias and the Cucumber Tree as well as the second in the series which is The Darling Dahlias and the Naked Ladies.  Both very well written.  #3 in the series is The Darling Dahlias and the Confederate Rose, #4 is The Darling Dahlias and the Texas Star and #5 the most recent installment is The Darling Dahlias and the Silver Dollar Bush.

Happy Weekend All!

I love Amish story books. 

Comment by Ellen Pearce on Friday

I'm reading a Miss Read book about Thrush Green.  They care great to read before bed. I'm reading the last of the Medieval Mysteries available from the library.  Teaching Beowulf and the Venerable Bede's History tomorrow.  Then I can move on to the Anglo Saxon period.

Thank you for sharing about Wanda Brunstettler..I lived in a Amish community for 2 years in Pennsylvania..but never read any of the books ...this would be a good book for me to start my Amish journey into their life than watching from afar!

Comment by handstitcher/IL on Thursday

I'll have to look for The Healing Quilt. I enjoyed the previous two books in the storyline. I'm back to continuing my read through the JA Jance books. I don't have so much time during the school year to get to the library, so it's nice to have an author I can quickly grab. A good friend also passed on several books, mostly mysteries, so I'll have them to tackle this winter.

P.S. Kathy.....GO IT!! You sound like you are having such a great life!

Comment by Vicki Fox on Thursday

I just finished The Struggle by Wanda Brunstetter. I enjoy the Amish novels too. 

Oh Ellen...thanks for the memories...I remember reading All of a Kind Family! I don't remember particulars of course, just how much I enjoyed it.

Hmmm....I think my family might be one of those new type of book clubs, lol.

Comment by cinderella pisani on Thursday

I just finished Wanda E. Brunstetter's The Healing Quilt. It is third in the series of Half-stitched Amish Quilting Club. I enjoy books that feature Amish characters and in these books the main character is an Amish lady who teaches quilting classes. The books always stress devotion to God and then family above all else. They also include yummy recipes and this one has a recipe for raisin molasses cookies I would love to try. However it makes 6 dozen so I will have to brush off my math skills to get a more appropriate amount. I know I will be looking for the next book when it comes out and I recommend them to anyone who enjoys feeling good books.
