Hello, Cozy Readers! Not much new since my last message, just more gardening, more work on Down to Earth, and more words on my draft of The Wing of a Bee, another cozy mystery.

When I went out this morning, I was surprised how much it feels like fall this morning, not spring. After the spell of dry, warmer weather we just had, the cool dampness seemed out of place with all the redbuds, grape hyacinths, and irises blooming in the neighborhood. But I’m also taking a moment to appreciate it–summer will be here before we know it!

What are you reading as we move into a new season? I’d love to hear your recommendations!

Sending cozy wishes,
Tammy D. Walker

So when Horseman finds Seru’s corpse in the changing shed he vows to help investigate. But the police refuse to pass him the ball. Even his friends and Coach send him to the sidelines.
