MURDER, STAGE LEFT By Robert Goldsborough

31015354

I have been a fan of Nero Wolfe books for over fifty years. I have all of those by Rex Stout many times. I have read some the books by Robert Goldsborough and I like his rendition of the characters. He has caught their essence and is expanding their development. Nero is coveting a rare orchid and sends Archie undercover in order to earn a plant. At the end of Archie’s first day, there is a murdered man. Now Nero must contend with Inspector Cramer and the news media as the composite drawing of the mystery man is Archie. Of course, Nero calls in Saul to take Archie’s place. Will Wolfe solved the case to earn that orchid. I like the ending. I highly recommend this book.

WEEKEND COFFEE/TEA SHARE MARCH 4, 2017

THINK POSITIVE!

Welcome come inside out of theind and rain. We reach 57 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday. It started to rain last night.Select your drink of coffee, tea or other drink. There are some banana chocolate cupcakrs on which to munch. After week of waking up to a thin cover of snow on the ground the warmer weather is more than welcome. Still no sign of spring snow still covers the mountains and the trees and shrubs look dead. It is a thrill to see the mallards come into the feeding stations. While there are a number of birds around none are really exciting as I followed the birding blogs.

I want to apologize to those I didn’t get around to reading their blog last week. It was a tense week for me. I hope to do better this week.

Since I miss the flowers very much on a trip to grocery store, I found the above flowers for sale. It is a treat to see the primroses as bedding plants. It has been awhile since I have seen any.

A couple of sunsets. I haven’t felt to good this week. I saw a NP in the middle of week and have an appointment Monday at Geriatric clinic. I don’t have much hope that it will help me. Yesterday, was grocery shopping and the Girl Scouts where out selling cookies. I sold them in the 1940s. I brought GF cookies and there chocolate mints. I did take some pictures with my new phone.  Now I need learn how get them off the phone and were to use them.

BOOKS

I have been reading Neil Packcy’s Golden Retriever mysteries this week. There are seven in all. I read six of them. There is not much mystery but story about Steve Levitan and his dog Rochester. They are an easy light read and the ebook price is right. I plan on reading some ARC before I read the last one.

THE CASE OF THE CURIOUS COOK By Cathy Ace

33921353
I have been wanting to read this author for some time and the did not disappoint me. It is the third book and the series and I had a little problem at first. Once I understood the format the story keep intrigued. It is character driven and I became friends of the five WISE women and their agency.I like the way the investigation starts out as a minor problem and grew too many different factors. The chapters cover each of the women in a rotation. You learn a little about the women’s life as they went about looking into their personal lives. There is Carol, the new mother and computer expert. Christina, the daughter of impoverished Welsh lord and her male friend. Annie a tall black girl from the slums who goes undercover. Mavis, a retired military nurse who is living with the Dowager Duchess Althea. The starts out with someone leaving books at a bookstore The Curious Cook. As the agency solves that the story expands to include a murder and fleecing of seniors. I highly recommend this book.
