"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

This is the first book in the series.  The third book comes out November 2, so need to catch up on this series before I read the new one. Don't know how I missed this series, but this bloggy world has led me down so many new book paths. I love it!!

My cold is gone, things have settled back down on the home front, need to kick my reading into high gear, the last two weeks of sickness and drama have put me way behind. So there will be less time at this computer and more time "escaping into good books".

I wish you all a happy week of reading, be sure to check out the October Book Giveaway in the left sidebar.  I will be announcing another giveaway featuring A Fatal Friend soon too.
Oh. and let me know what you think of my new background.  Does it look like the kind of place you would "Escape With A Good Book"?  My original plan was a Hawaiian background, but this North Carolina coast looks almost tranquil to me.

So glad you are feeling better! I have been fighting a cold like something that is driving me crazy!

Have a super week :)

I love the new background. I certainly wouldn't mind sitting and reading a book here :)

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. I'm currently fighting a cold/flu-type bug. Urgh!

Love the background - it reminds me summer is on its way.
Will be interested in the Terminal Care review - that cover seems quite sinister.

Happy reading!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Several of these books sound interesting to me. Been trying to get more into the cozy mysteries, considering I was a big fan of Trixie Beldon and Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys when I was a kid, seems only natural I would like these kinds of books as well.

Have a great reading week... Hope you keep the cold at bay!

I was just looking at The False Friend yesterday but decided to wait until I read a few reviews.

I'm glad your cold is gone, I seem to have picked up something (maybe an allergy) but hope it's gone in a day/two. Tis the season!

Have a wonderful week!
