Thanks for tip on new Sandra Dallas book.  Her early books were the best but I have enjoyed all but one. I just couldn't get into Tallgrass.  Has anyone read it?  I am wondering if I should tackle it again.

Handstitcher,  I have read Prayers for Sale by Sandra Dallas.  I will be good to read her new book, A Quilt for Christmas.

I, too, enjoyed the Diary of Mattie Spenser. If I remember correctly, there was a little cross-over between that book and Alice's Tulips and also with Prayers for Sale. Sandra Dallas also has a new book out called A Quilt for Christmas. I haven't read it yet, but it takes place during the Civil War.

Kathy-Have you read Barbara Pym's books?  If you like Miss Read, you will probably like her.  I've had to search for her books because our library doesn't have her books.  Another author I like is Penelope Lively.  The last one I read was about a small insignificant incident and all that happened in people's lives because of it.

I haven't seen the sisters series.  I did read the first 2 or 3 of the poor relations series.  They were clever as Beaton always is.  I'll have to get a used copy or listen on audible.  Our library only has the Hamish and Agatha series.

I'm enjoying listening to The Virginian.  The stories remind me of Wagon Train for some reason.  I liked the cowboy shows.

Great Vicki..I love Beaton!..i haven't read or heard of the Six Sisters!..I will search for it!..and thanks for Mary Ellen Taylor !!..sounds like fun!

Kathy, the author of Union Street Bakery is Mary Ellen Taylor. It is one of a series. Ellen, I'm glad I could help :)

I have started listening to an M.C. Beaton series...The Six Sisters. I checked out #1 - Minerva & #2 - (something about) Annabelle. I have a terrible time with titles, lol. I was going to get another Agatha Raisin but they were all gone! I am enjoying Minerva though. These take place in the 1800's & are about a vicar who would rather hunt, who tries to marry off his daughters. You might like them Kathy...
