Preparing for the Tucson Festival of Books? Here are few reading suggestions.
Home Safe by Elizabeth Berg (fiction): This is a story about the ever changing, and sometimes challenging, relationship between a mother and daughter. Helen is recently widowed and finds herself relying more and more on her daughter, causing a rift to grow between the two women. If you are looking for a great character writer, pick-up an Elizabeth Berg novel. Her characters are very well developed and the writing is excellent.
A Cast-Off Coven by Juliet Blackwell (paranormal mystery): This novel is the second book in Blackwell’s Witchcraft series. Lily who is a witch and the owner of a vintage clothing store, Aunt Cora’s Closet, stumbles across the murder of a wealthy benefactor to the local college of fine arts. It doesn’t take long before Lily finds herself once again acting as a part-time sleuth. This a fun cozy mystery to read with the added excitement of ghosts and evil beings, and lets not forget about the clothes.
