I just realized I never posted this on Friday~ (This is proof of how easy it is to "save" and not "publish.") So for the (very) few of you who look for it, here is a belated (and ultimately not worth the wait) Friday Book Blog:
This week was crazy-busy, so I only have two books to choose from. I'm selecting the virtually fattening Clare Cosi mystery Holiday Buzz by Cleo Coyle. Yes, it takes place at Christmas. And yes, it's an arch-typical mystery featuring an amateur detective (in this case she runs a coffee shop but she's dating a cop). There are odd, quirky characters, red herrings, and a satisfying solution. But best of all, there are a bunch of delicious-sounding desserts AND the recipes to go with them. Yum!
