QUICK NOTE...Update: 10/10/19

Good news: We're back home! Bad news: It's like Apocalypse Heck Part III.

The one year Hurricane Michael anniversary is already here. Where did the time go...and yet it feels like forever. You don't realize how much you take for granted until it's all gone. I'm grateful my family/fur babies survived, and I know they are just "things", but sadly, in this life, those "things" help us get through every day. So yes, "happy" yet not. Every day is still a struggle...not just for my family, but so many others.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

Hopping into trouble: EASTER BUNNY MURDER by Leslie Meier - DOUBLE Giveaway!

Hi guys!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers…the place that doesn’t know the meaning of the words NO TIME TO READ…pfft!  No time; I’ll give you time… *breaks out the chemistry set*

So…yesterday was a CRAZY day, as those of you who follow me on Twitter may have read.  First, job one is all haywire, then the office chair dumps me on my butt.  Journey to job two and the first shift lead had to go home early (sick), then a member of my night team called off (sick), and to top it all off, I sprain my ankle…with dramatic flair of course.  ^_^  Yeah, I’m looking at the bright side because as much as this sucker hurts, it could be worse.  So, a few Tylenol’s in the system and an ice bag (or three) later and I’ll be good to go…just a bit slower.  *ugh*  Oh well, life marches on…but not if you’re starring in today’s featured title.  *plays ominous music*

That’s right!  We just ended the Printed Books Giveaway Hop and I’m in the process of going through the entries to select a winner (keep an eye on your email boxes my friends, it could be YOU!) but that doesn’t mean the fun ends there…no siree.  For you see, there is this fabulous little mystery from a well known author that’s hopping down the bunny trail just in time for Spring’s arrival…though he won’t be hopping for long according to the synopsis.  *-*  Oh boy.  Colored eggs, jelly beans…and an energizer-less bunny.  Looks like this Easter is starting off on the wrong rabbit’s foot…

Leslie Meier

Spring has sprung in Tinker's Cove, and Lucy Stone has a mile-long to-do list. From painting eggs with her grandson, to preparing the perfect Easter feast, to reviving her garden after a long, cold winter, she hardly has time to hunt for a killer with a deadly case of spring fever... Lucy has always loved covering the annual Easter egg hunt for the Pennysaver. Hosted by elderly socialite Vivian Van Vorst at Pine Point, her luxurious oceanfront estate, it's a swanky event where the grown-ups sip cocktails while their children search for eggs that are as likely to contain savings bonds as they are jelly beans. But when Lucy arrives with her three-year-old grandson, VV's normally welcoming gates are locked, and a man dressed as the Easter Bunny emerges only to drop dead moments later…
Lucy discovers that the victim is Van Vorst Duff, VV's grandson, and soon learns that not all is as it seems at idyllic Pine Point, where the champagne and caviar seem to be running dry. Always a social butterfly, VV has been skipping lunch dates with friends, and her much-needed donations to local charities have stopped with no explanation. Maybe she's going senile, or maybe her heirs are getting a little too anxious to take over her estate…
As Lucy gathers a basketful of suspects, she's convinced someone's been hunting for a lot more than eggs, and she'll have to chase the truth down a rabbit hole before the killer claims another victim…

Awful to here about your chair malfunction, I hope you aren't too badly bruised.

Gina R said...

Petty Witter: Yeah, the chair issue mostly bruised my ego (^_^) but the ankle is another story. I'll survive. ^_^
