The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
Another nice, but busy week. I send out 5 media kits for the 5 cover reveals that will take place next week and I am exicted to see all the cover reveals take place next week! It will be a fun and and busy week with all those cover reveals. I also got a lot of marketing assistant work done and only have only a little bit left for next week.
I reorganized my recipes page a bit so it’s easier to find a recipe you’re looking for. I now grouped things in general cooking posts, dinner recipes, cake/ pies etc and other. As the list of recipes was getting so long it became difficult to find recipes. Ofcourse you can also use ctrl f, but I still thought it was handy to group it in different categories as well in case you don’t have a specific recipe in mind you’re looking for.
And there’s a new The Daydreamer Detective by SJ Pajonascover reveal open for sign-up! It’s the first cover reveal for a cozy mystery I am organizing and it’s such a great cover, I can’t wait to share it with you!
I almost finished two more books for this challenge, so my total is still on 2, but will be upped to 4 today probably. As I am almost done with The City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong (love it!) and Murder on a Silver Platter by Shawn Reilly Simmons (not really caring about this one even though the catering thing is interesting).
Random Picture(s) of the Week
I mentioned last week that I made a Banoffee pie, here’s the picture. One of my challenges for this year is to make more pies, so I am doing really good so far with making two pies in two months ;). It turned out pretty good, although I was impatient and cut it up before it was fully cooled and thus some caramal dripped out. The pie turned out good, just not 100% to my taste? It was pretty sticky and I thought there was too much caramel. I did like the cookies I used for the bottom and the banana’s, but I don’t think I will make this pie again. Overal I still consider it a succes as it did turn out well.
And this week I amde apple pie, Kirsten mentioned it last week in a comment on my sunday post and suddenly I was craving apple pie. We still had a lot of apples left, so apple pie was made. I even made pictures so I can share the recipe on my blog in April :). And I was feeling a bit grumpy and down that day and making pie definitely cheered me up. This is the best apple pie I made so far, it turned out fantasic, looked great and tasted delicious too, yum! Apple pie is one of the few pies I can actually make, so I just knew I had to make it for my resolution challenge. What is your favourie pie to bake and to eat?

A Disguise to Die For (Costume Shop Mystery #1)
by Diane Vallere
Source: bought it myself
You can find A Disguise to Die For on Goodreads
Someone is dressed to kill in the debut Costume Shop Mystery from the national bestselling author of the Material Witness mysteries.
No sooner does former magician’s assistant Margo Tamblyn return home to Proper City, Nevada, to run Disguise DeLimit, her family’s costume shop, than she gets her first big order. Wealthy nuisance Blitz Manners needs forty costumes for a detective-themed birthday bash. As for Blitz himself, his Sherlock Holmes is to die for—literally—when, in the middle of the festivities, Margo’s friend and party planner Ebony Welles is caught brandishing a carving knife over a very dead Blitz.
For Margo, clearing Ebony’s name is anything but elementary, especially after Ebony flees town. Now Margo is left to play real-life detective in a town full of masked motives, cloaked secrets, and veiled vendettas. But as she soon learns, even a killer disguise can’t hide a murderer in plain sight for long.
INCLUDES RECIPES AND COSTUME IDEAS!
