Hollis and Daisy love podcasting about murder cases…
But can they solve one?

Hollis Bisbee used to be a big-city crime reporter. Now, she’s a small-town journalist, and she’s bored. She and a young mom, talented baker Daisy Mueller, start the Knock ‘Em Dead podcast— ”Where murder and muffins meet!” It’s all fun, games, and baking tips until murder comes to Parkwood.

After a brutal homecoming game loss, the coach of the rival football team is the victim of a hit-and-run in the high school parking lot. The entire town is on edge, and the star quarterback—who happens to be the police chief’s son—may just look the guiltiest of all.

With Hollis’s investigative skills and Daisy’s famous muffins…and in spite of the charming rookie police officer tasked with keeping Hollis out of the way…the podcasting duo sets out to solve their first real case.

A Parkwood Mystery

Twenty years.  Two decades.  It’s kind of shocking to realize that it’s been that long since I first met these amazing characters and got caught up in their world.  Or perhaps I should add “worlds” for this original series has branched out a bit since the original series was first published.

And, to make this reader of the Bridgertons very happy is the sweet fact that all of my favorite Bridgertons and their eventual spouses are heading to Netflix – one very happy reader to be able to see what my imagination created years ago.

Over the years, Julia Quinn has become a “go-to” author for Regency/Historical Romance for me.  I’ve enjoyed the lively characters, the vivid worlds, and the intrigue that she brings to every story.  I don’t see that ending any time soon.  If she writes it, I will read it – it’s that simple.  I began this journey long before this blog existed – but perhaps it’s time to revisit this world as a celebration of my own of a group of characters that I love and return to often.

If you haven’t entered the world of The Bridgertons yet then I would highly recommend this particular series and add those that came later and connect in some way to the original series.  If you love Regency/Historical Romance I don’t see how you could be the least bit disappointed with what you’ll find within the pages.

Thank you, Julia Quinn, for the stories, the people who live within the pages, and the adventures they’ve taken me on – here’s hoping there are many more to come.

The Bridgertons series includes — The Duke and I – The Viscount Who Loved Me – An Offer From A Gentleman – Romancing Mr. Bridgerton – To Sir Phillip, With Love – When He Was Wicked – It’s In His Kiss – On the Way To The Wedding — and all the #.5 titles are in The Bridgertons: Happy Ever After — Anthologies:  Lady Whistledown Strikes Back – Further Observations of Lady Whistledown

If you want more (in a way) of the Bridgertons and their neighbors, the Rokesbys then you’ll want to check out — The Rokesbys: A Bridgerton Prequel series — Because of Miss Bridgerton – The Girl With The Make-Believe Husband – The Other Miss Bridgerton – First Comes Scandal

Wow!  2020.  Let’s hope it’s a year of clearer vision for us all.  I know that it’s been a crazy, busy week it’s been around my house – I’d bet probably yours, too.

This post has been shared on The Sunday Post, a weekly recap from so many amazing blogs hosted by Kimberly over at Caffeinated Reviewer.

Well, we survived the Holiday Season once again.  The tree is down and carted away to become mulch for the boro, the last of the leftovers have been either devoured or *sniff* tossed, and now comes the fun of finding places for all those goodies that were under the tree waiting to be the center of attention once again as putting the gifts away becomes a priority.  We, as a family, had fun – but now it’s time to go back to the everyday world.
