Cheering In Spirit

CheerleaderLeann Sweeney, who usually posts on Sunday, is still under the weather. Still, she wanted to support Lorraine (Lorna) and Heather and encourage you to buy their most recent books--either in print or for your e reader.

They are:

Crafty Killing.bn A Crafty Killing
by Lorraine Bartlett
The last thing Katie Bonner wanted was to become the manager of Artisans Alley. But when her business partner, Ezra Hilton, is found lying at the bottom of a staircase, bludgeoned to death, she has no other choice. A collection of booths for artisans and craft sellers in a renovated applesauce factory building, Artisans Alley is the main attraction in the quaint Victoria Square shopping area. But business under Ezra had been faltering. While the cops are proceeding by the book, Katie is investigating by the booths—for the answer to the killer’s identity lies in the hidden secrets of Artisans Alley itself.


Absolutely Postively Absolutely, Positively by Heather Webber
“Exposed” by a Boston Herald reporter, Lucy is suddenly the talk of the town. Long back-story short: Even though the rest of her Valentine ancestors were blessed by Cupid with psychic abilities, Lucy’s only special power lies in her ability to find things. This skill has proven quite a blessing for those who come to her matchmaking agency in search of finding their long-lost loves. Now that Lucy’s secret is out, she has more new clients than she knows what to do with. But soon a certain man of mystery steals Lucy’s spotlight…

No, it’s not Sean Donahue, the sexy fireman-turned-private-eye who’s stolen Lucy’s heart. It’s a masked man in a cowboy hat, dubbed “The Lone Ranger,” who’s been throwing handfuls of cash across the Common. Now all of Beantown’s abuzz. Can Lucy unmask the mysterious money man, track down all her clients’ old flames, and turn up the heat on her love life? Absolutely, positively…

Leann, I hope you feel oodles better by the end of this sleepy Sunday.

If anyone else is under the weather, these titles will make you feel as warm and cozy as a bowl of chicken soup!

Sending virtual chickwen soup (I love that!) and virtual red velver cake from Birmingham, AL - even better because it's not fattening!

Rosemary Harris said...

chickwen and velver...they are variations of chicken and velvet (must get a manicure...)

Sending virtual chicken soup from New Jersey. Get well soon Leann. And to Heather, already purchased and read Absolutely, Positively and loved it...waiting anxiously for the next chapter. Next on my list for purchase is A Crafty Killing. (Had to find out about Lucy and Sean first, sorry Lorraine.)

Sorry you're under the weather, Leann. I seem to be stuck on old expressions today. Does anyone know the origin of the expression "under the weather"?

Kaye Killgore said...

Sending virtual chicken soup from Portland, Oregon. Hugs (not too tight) also.

Leann: {HUGS}

I am trying to find the time to read one of those, but I have a weird thing: if I like an author, I have to have all their books, the whole backlist, in paper ... so I don't try out too many new authors ... But they sure sound like right up my alley.

Bella said...

Feel better Leann. I can't wait to get both of these for my eReader. They both look so good!

Guess what arrived in the mail today!! YAY!
