December 25, 2015 Memes 12

BMR,Friday's MemeSince there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.

What was the best Christmas (or other holiday) gift you ever received? – Suggested by Alison Can Read

Well, I can’t remember all that far back so I am going to have to go with the first Kindle Fire I got from my dad when they first came out, which I can’t even remember when that was…lol. It was the only the second ereader I had ever had and the fact that it had games on it too…well that was just cool….lol.

Thread and Gone

When a priceless antique is stolen, murder unravels the peaceful seaside town of Haven Harbor, Maine. . .

Angie Curtis and her fellow Mainely Needlepointers know how to enjoy their holidays. But nothing grabs their attention like tying up loose threads. So when Mary Clough drops in on the group’s Fourth of July supper with a question about an antique needlepoint she’s discovered in her family attic, Angie and her ravelers are happy to look into the matter.

Angie’s best guess is that the mystery piece may have been stitched by Mary, Queen of Scots, famous not just for losing her head, but also for her needlepointing. If Angie’s right, the piece would be extremely valuable. For safekeeping, Angie turns the piece over to her family lawyer, who places it in a safe in her office. But when the lawyer is found dead with the safe open and ransacked, the real mystery begins. . .

Book Three of the Mainely Needlepoint Mystery series. I really enjoy this cozy series.

The simple folded leather packet looked old. Old, cracked, and very out of place, as it lay innocently on the bright red Fourth of July tablecloth. A mystery from the past had interrupted my first Haven Harbor dinner party.
Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday  Teaser but  you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.

“Did you tell anyone about the jewelry?” “Sure. Ain’t no secret.” “Did anyone show a special interest in it? Or how valuable it was? “Missy, I already answered all these questions. That Pete Lambert, he and Ethan Trask, they were here bright and early after some kids found Lenore’s body.” He slumped against the door frame.

From 56% on my kindle fire. Angie is looking into who might have stolen the contents of Lenore’s safe. She says she is just looking for the old needlepoint that was in the safe and not the murder, but umm I think they kind of go together. 🙂

book blogger hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.  Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.

What is your preferred format for reviews? Do you tell the story or do you focus on characters and the reason someone would like the review?

I usually do a little summary then talk about the characters, etc. I am always trying to changing my format but that is what I normally do. 🙂

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I’ve sadly never had an ereader. But I rather enjoy using my tablet to read for the same reason you enjoyed your Fire… because I could play games on it.

    My reviews also change format from review to review. I think that makes it more realistic. I’m not following the same pattern for each review, so you know I’m actually trying to think about what I want to say as oppose to just checking off a few key things and adding some stars.

    A Kindle Fire is definitely on my wish list as well! Damn, that’s a nice present! Sadly, they don’t ship them to Holland for some reason -.-
