Hi, Cozy Readers. It’s raining today in Dallas, and as I’m sitting here at my desk this morning, listening to the drops against the window, I’m feeling grateful for friends, family, and you!

imageThank you for your company this year on my list. I hope 2023 wraps up beautifully for you all, and that you have a wonderful 2024.

This year, I couldn’t decide between the flowers in snow stamps or the animals in snow stamps, so I went with both! Now that I’m almost done with the cards I’ll send out, it’s time to get back to writing, and, of course, reading. What are your plans for the rest of the year? I’d love to hear from you!

Sending cozy wishes,
Tammy D. Walker

If you’re looking to add to your end-of-year to read list, here are a couple titles to discover:

Sauvignon Slaying
by Elizabeth Rain

A Grisly Murder, a Desperate Ghost, and a 100-year-old Secret?

imageBuying the rundown Vineyard on Spell’s Bay is Verity’s Do-Over. It just needs a little TLC. And maybe a bulldozer.

It’s here in the Magic-Filled town of Veil Falls that she will find out she’s something more than Over-the-Hill and Broke…

According to Honor, her handsome next-door neighbor and resident Vine Warlock, she has a certain gift.

Only a Wine Witch isn’t all she is. When the Naked Ghost on the Chair in her Bedroom starts asking questions, she’s certain she’s ready for the Not so Funny Farm…and determined to get rid of the Curse!

But after her first paying venue goes belly up….and Dead Hostess down, Verity, along with her newly adopted crime-sleuthing kitten Lois, will need to solve the murder quick if she want to get paid and keep the farm.

There’s a load of secrets in this seemingly cozy little town where nothing happens by chance…
