Tuesday * Library day

This Tuesday it’s all about the public Library.
My small town only has a small one only opened part time but a big part of our community & my family. We have all been big book lovers all our lives and we love giving back to our local library. If you  haven’t visited lately make sure you do and take your family. This Summer the libraries are running great programs for the entire family.
A library book open a world of wonder. Lisa 
Here’s a simple question—answer it honestly, because your response could boost the amount of pleasure in your daily life, delay dementia, and even help you live longer: How many hours did you spend reading books last week?
People who read books—fiction or nonfiction, ­poetry or prose—for as little as 30 minutes a day over several years were living an average of two years longer than people who didn’t read anything at all

S’more Murders (A Five-Ingredient Mystery)

Managing a fitness club café and collaborating on a cookbook with her grandfather are Val Deniston’s usual specialties, but she’s about to set sail into nearby Chesapeake Bay—straight into a murder case . . .

Since catering themed events is a good way to make extra cash, Val agrees to board the Titanic—or at least cater a re-creation of the doomed journey on a yacht. The owner of the yacht, who collects memorabilia related to the disaster, wants Val to serve the last meal the Titanic passengers ate . . . while his guests play a murder-mystery game. But it is the final feast for one passenger who disappears from the ship. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Now Val has to reel in a killer before s’more murders go down . . .

Includes delicious five-ingredient recipes!
“Corrigan keeps her simple mixture of pleasant characters, murder, and recipes in the oven.”
—Kirkus Reviews

Promises and Pina Coladas

  Happy Pina  Colada Day :





book link

In college, Annie Tremont and Ben Danforth made a promise over a particularly wicked pitcher of Piña Coladas: if either of them needed anything, (anytime, anywhere) the other would be there. It was the kind of thing close friends say, never expecting the words to matter. Only now, a decade later, that promise is coming due.

Annie, a home-town-loving free spirit, is following her dreams as a radio deejay and social activist. Ben is a top exec with a New York financial firm, who’s about to receive the promotion of a lifetime, which will take him halfway around the world, if only he can clean up the mess in the Cincinnati Office. But fate is conspiring against his promotion, leading him directly to Annie’s door.

Even as sparks sizzle, Ben and Annie know they can’t base their future on a Promise over Piña Coladas…or can they?
