Another Big Hit Curse of the Holy Pail by Sue Ann Jaffarian

The Curse of the Holy Pail (An Odelia Grey Mystery, #2)

 The Curse of the Holy Pail (An Odelia Grey Mystery #2) by Sue Ann Jaffarian

I just have to say right up front I love this book and this series by Sue Ann Jaffarian. Last night I stayed up past midnight to finish this book because I just couldn't put it down, 4:30am came early this morning, but the book was well worth losing sleep over.

Odelia Grey is a plus size, smart, sassy, paralegal who seems to have a knack for getting into the middle of murder mysteries. Trouble just seems to find her even when she isn't looking for it. In The Curse of the Holy Pail a client for the firm she works for collects lunch boxes and when she goes to do some notary work for him he shows her his collection of lunch boxes, including his most precious one The Holy Pail.  Later that day he is found dead at his office and the pail missing and everyone assumes Odelia has the pail since he had sent her one from his collection earlier that day after their meeting. So again Odelia is thrown into danger while trying to solve this mystery that just happened to fall in her lap.

This book has a number of possible suspects and it keeps you guessing to the end who the murderer is. Odelia also goes through a range of emotions from fear, to anger, to sorrow and of course her love for her boyfriend Greg. It has everything mystery, mixed with a little romance and intrigue as well as giving us a look into the world of lunch boxes.  I think with this book we see even more into who Odelia Grey is and her character.

I can't say enough how good this book is and I can't wait to read the next book in the series, Thugs and Kisses (An Odelia Grey Mystery #3) by Sue Ann Jaffarian

Gem of a Ghost by Sue Ann Jaffarian Review

 Sue Ann Jaffarian is becoming one of my favorite authors. I really like both of her series The Ghost of Granny Apples Mysteries and Odelia Grey Mysteries. If you haven't read any books in either one of these series you are really missing out. She has another series The Madison Rose
Vampire Mystery Series
that I have not read any of the books. If you want to know more about her books check out her website at

Gem of a Ghost (A Ghost of Granny Apples Mystery, #3)

Gem of a Ghost (The Ghost of Granny Apples Mystery) Book 3 by Sue Ann Jaffarian

Another great book. Each one gets better. Emma has to find out if a ring is haunted and if so why. This book has ghosts, mystery, romance and is somewhat darker than the other two books. Makes for a good book that I recommend if you like the paranormal mixed with history and mystery. The Ghost of Granny Apples and Emma work together to help a ghost that is harming others and they take us on the wild ride with them and along the way we learn a little of the history of Jim Thorpe PA. The book piqued my interest into finding out more about the town and its legends which to me is a plus if a book can do that. Don't miss this book and the others in the series you won't be disappointed.

If you like me would like to learn more about Jim Thorpe PA (Mauch Chunk PA) then check out these sites:

That's it for now on to the next book. Let me know what you are reading and

Summer Reading What are you Reading

The last few days have been hectic at our house. We had a flat tire, with no spare and I think we bought a whole forest of Rubber Trees for the price we paid for a tire. Then our daughter had surgery on her elbow and they had to reattach her tendon. Then she went to the ER because her arm was hot to touch and she was sick an they found she has an infection at the surgery site. She was given antibiotics and is doing better now so finally I hope, saying with fingers crossed, that things are settling down.

Getting back to books I decided to make a list of books I want to read this summer but find there are so many good ones coming out that it is really hard to narrow down just a few. What are you planning on reading? Have any suggestions for me to read or books you have read that you could suggest to me?

Here is a list of the ones I know for sure I am reading over the summer:

1. Gem of a Ghost (A Ghost of Granny Apples Mystery #3) by Sue Ann Jaffarian
2.The Curse of the Holy Pail (An Odelia Grey Mystery, #2) by Sue Ann Jaffarian
3. The Yada Yada Prayer Group (The Yada Yada Prayer Group #1) by Neta Jackson
4. Murphy's Law (Molly Murphy Mysteries #1) by Rhys Bowen
5. A Cookbook Conspiracy (A Bibliophile Mystery #7)  by Kate Carlisle
6. Final Sentence A Cookbook Nook Mystery by Daryl Wood Gerber
Of course there will be others that I will read and review this summer but these are the ones on my list to read for sure. Maybe you could read them with me and let me know what you think of them. I love to connect with you and hear what you think. Till the next time:
