Blurb: This novella is the kickoff point for the Westford Bay B&B Series! Ten chapters of Ally Wescott going from nearly-wedded bliss with her very French fiancé to investigator! Two letters bring about loss, but as this is book zero on the series, I assume they bring Ally much more!

Overall Annual Books Planning to be Read:
I have both monthly and annual reading challenges I’m taking part in during 2019. I said my goal was #200Books, but it seems like I’m squeaking ever closer to 210.
This is the list of everything, with links to reviews as they are consumed.
I love me a good, fluffy, cozy mystery book. It’s like a cartoon in print. Plucky heroine, Scooby-Doo style mystery, and usually a plot that could be getting you blitzed if you were playing an adapted version of the Hallmark Christmas Movie Drinking Game.
So what am I doing? Adding to my to-read pile with EscapeWithDollyCas.com’s 2019 Craving for Cozies Reading Challenge!
