Does anyone make a summer reading list?

I just finished The Crow's Call. It is an Amish mystery story by Wanda Brunstetter.
I am also midway through Crosswords and Chamomile. A Tearoom Mystery by Elizabeth Davis.
Come share your recommendations.

I love the Brunstetter books. I have a couple here from a friend to read.

I just finished The Duke and I, by Julia Quinn. Now I have just started A Woman of No Importance, by Sonia Purcell. It is the untold story of the American spy who helped win World War II. A friend ordered it online, and accidentally ordered two copies, so she gave me one. The print size is smaller than I like, so I'm getting a slow start on the reading. It's a New York Times bestseller and I am looking forward to reading about the life of Virginia Hall.

Trixie Belsen, very old mystery stories about a 13 girl who solves them, entertaining, and clean.
I like the Cat who series too.
Tony Hillerman, a friend gave me some BBC mysteries to read too.

Enjoy and hugs

I've seen the Cat Who books all around but have never read any of them. Is there a certain one that is first or are they all stand alone books.

In a way they have an order. Characters and relationships change and are referenced in Future books, so I'd start at the first one. There is a list on line. Easy reads.

Thanks Linda!
I am waiting for the next book to come out I think it is called The Mockingbird's Song by Brunstetter. I'm not sure but I believe it is due out in June. The Crow's Call I got from Wanda. She was nice enough to sign it for me. It just showed up in my mailbox one day and was a nice surprise.

They have a number on them and do follow in order pretty much but I have read them both ways, some Times the characters do following order.

They are good.
I didnít like the way the last one ended.

I will have to look. I know I donít have all of them but I will.
It is the cat who had 60 whiskers.
There are 29 all together, I found that out on Amazon?

I just finished the book, Castle on the Hill by Elizabeth Gouge. It was the story of several people from different classes experiencing the horrors of the 1940 bombings of England in WWII. Elizabeth Gouge weaves reality, faith, compassion, and love in a unique story that kept me glued to this book. I highly recommend this author to your list of books to explore.

I am going to have to look that one up Winnie.

I have such a tall stacked of to be reads but, maybe this summer I will make a dent in it. If I waited to get anymore until I read my stack it would be quite a while. I enjoy reading series but can't bring myself to read them out of order.
