NEWS!


We kicked off our first mini-challenge of the year for the 2012 Cozy Mystery Challenge. Since the first mini-challenge is set for Jan. & Feb. the theme is Love! You must be a participant in the main challenge for be a part of this mini-challenge. All you have to do is find a cozy with the word "love" in the title, read it, review it and post your link. Several people mentioned in the comments that finding a cozy with just the word love was difficult so I am going to allow all forms of the word love: loved, lover, loving, etc etc. I did make a note that the second cozy by Mary Ann Clark has love in the title. So get reading and posting those links to be eligible for the prize. See details on my sidebar!


On a more personal note. It's been a bit of a traumatic week for me. I'm back at work and had a ton of things on my mind. But I made it and all the other stuff is going to be OK... I'm Thankful, grateful and very blessed! Just had to share LOL!
