A Taste of Murder by Helen Marchmont

“A Taste of Murder” is the third in the Bunburry series. I guess it could stand alone, but I’d suggest reading the first two. They’re short anyway, around 100 pages, so it’s not a huge commitment, and that way you’ll be introduced to the town and Alfie and have more background going on this …

Cherringham, Episodes #10-12 by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards

Secret Santa by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards

I had to go to a Christmas luncheon out of town for work and was trying to pick something to start listening to for my ride back home. (Lunch, by the way was at The Twisted Olive in Green, OH – delicious!) Around town I’ve been listening to holiday music, but …
