Month of July - Reading Review and Plans for August

I read six books this month, which is a pretty good total for me!
There was a nice mix of mystery, fiction and a short story, including one book that's been on my eReader for a couple of years which I finally got round to reading - Coffee at Little Angels.

1.  Pressed Pennies by Steven Manchester (Part of a Book tour)

2.  Fatal Act by Leigh Russell  (Real Readers)

3.  The Garden Plot by Marty Wingate  (NetGalley)

4.  The Night Before by Luanne Rice  (short story from NetGalley)

5.  A Sixpenny Song by Jennifer Johnston  (Bookbridgr)

6.  Coffee at Little Angels by Nadine Rose Larter  (author)

I enjoyed them all, apart from A Sixpenny Song which I was a little disappointed with, and I'd have to say my favourite would be The Garden Plot.  This was the first in a new cozy mystery series about a Texan ex-pat gardener now based in London, England and I'm looking forward to reading the next instalment!

I also took part in seven Virtual Book Tours where I highlighted but didn't review the books.  These were

1.  Birds of the Nile by Nick David

2.  Letter from Paris by Therese

3.  Locks:  Rapunzel Unhinged by Sarah J Pepper

4.  Shaking out the Dead by KM Cholewa

5.  Everyday Celebrations by Maria Loggia

6.  Strangers on a Bus by Rob Manary

7.  Betty's Little (Basement) Garden by Laurel Dewey


Plans for August

I've nearly finished the hypnotic Herring Girl by Debbie Taylor so I shall be reviewing that shortly as it's soon to be published on the 7th August.
