"I BELIEVE IN PINK! I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."— Audrey Hepburn

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every night, friends. You have done what you could. Let it go.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

September's Mystery and Suspence Challenge

OK, so I have read several books recently that qualify for this one...so hmmm, what to choose, what to choose...
I think it shall be...

Ellie is young, rich, engaged and in love. These are the carefree days before marriage and new responsibility, and anything goes -- including house-sitting at eccentric Aunt Kate's palatial estate in Burton, Virginia. Ellie feels right at home here with the nearly invisible housekeepers and the plethora of pets, but she soon realizes that there are disturbing secrets about the local aristocracy buried in a dusty old book she has carried into the mansion. And her sudden interest in the past is attracting a slew of unwelcome guests -- some of them living and some, perhaps not. And the terrible vegeance that Ellie and her friends seem to have aroused -- now aimed at them -- surely cannot be...satanic.

That was from Amazon...This is an older book written by Elizabeth Peters, a pseudonym for Barbara Mertz. I just love her books...She writes with a wicked sense of humor and it matches mine...This one was no different. I loved Kate and Ellie and of course the Very Handsome neighbor...not so much the fiancee...see the trend here...I will say no more...Please give this one a shot...

Before I go I have to
give a shout out to one of my favorite series...I am partial to series as they give the author a chance to develop the characters and the relationships between same...
The series is The Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters...They are Egyptologists with a precocious son set during the time when all of the great Pharaohs tombs were being discovered.


  1. I am always on the look out for new books to read! Thanks for the tip. I have a few in the queue but I will certainly add this!

  2. I'm surious kiddo. Are you a fast reader like myself. I'm guesing that you are.

  3. Linking from Melomomma Friday link up...after reading this, now I feel like rushing to the book store and pick up dozen of new books :), great review!
