56. An Unorthodox Match by Naomi Ragen - so it seems like I've gone from an obsession with apocalyptic, dystopian literature to reading about ultra-orthodox Jews. Oh well! Anyhow - a recent convert and a widower find romance despite obstacles in their path.

Currently, I have Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family on audio book. I can only listen in small snippets as it is very self serving one would think they dictated it to the author.
I have also started a book by Debbie Macomber If Not for You

58. Jepthe's Daughter by Naomi Ragen - another unfortunate ultra-Orthodox marriage but the Batsheva eventually finds her way to happiness.
59. Shadows by David Kazzie - the EMP again! This time a nurse and the girl she rescued from a train wreck head to a farm in Virginia.

You may all wonder why I post mini synopses of everything I read.

I was a librarian for almost 30 years and it just comes naturally:)

83 Christmas Cupcake Murder by Joanne Fluke
84 Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Murder by Joanne Fluke

These are the last 2 books in this series of 27 books…to date. Easy reading, enjoyable, not gory or scary. No swearing or anything racy, lots of yummy-looking recipes.

Sugar and Spice? Nope. I sent it back early. There were 3 short stories - one was cute, but the other 2 were too sexy for me. On to the next book.

61. Immune by David Kazzle - it's worse than Covid and some of the book is rather depressing
