May 29th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

  11. I like the mystery surrounding a theft. Does the beautiful bowl have anything to do with it?
    Happy weekend!

  12. I spotted this book several times this week and had to get it. Sounds so fun and I never seem to get enough cozies. Plus, summer seems like my favorite time to read the, sitting by the pool or chilling in the shade. Have a great weekend and enjoy your read.
