                  Oh, boy, is that mug “me” all over! If I didn’t have too many mugs already, I’d have to get it.

                  I liked the mystery list, because it’s really broad: children’s, YA, cozy, classic Golden Age, British, American, noir, thrillers, spy novels, police procedurals, psychological mysteries…

                  Me too! Susan Mallery, Brenda Novak, RaeAnne Thayne, and Susan Wiggs made it worth it right there, and I’ve been wanting to try Bella Andre and a few of the others, so I preordered the set right away. I hope you enjoy it!
