What happened this week?
Another busy week, it’s becoming pretty much the norm now it seems. But I don’t mind as it’s busy in the good sense, with lots of work. A new cover reveal and blog tour went live for sign-up over at Lola’s Blog Tours. And I am so happy with the awesome banners Michelle from Because Reading is Better Than Real Life/ Limabean Designs did for my tours. I love them and I am so happy to have her as my banner maker! I am always looking forward to see how she designs the banner.
I saw this post on Bored Panda, it’s a dutch photographer who took pictures of the Netherlands. It gives you a bit of a feel what the country I live in looks like, although ofcourse the pictures do make it look more pretty than it actually is ;). But I thought it would be fun to share.
And a new shop opened in the small shopping center close by where we live. It’s been renovated lately and now and then a new shop opens there. Now we have a new ice cream store, that also sells coffee, tea, sandwiches and some other sweets. We visited last week and bought an ice cream, the ice cream was pretty good. It was fun to see the new store and I can imagine that once summer get’s here it will do pretty well.
Random Picture(s) of the Week
I am one of those people who like my routines and my breakfast is always very routine like. I pick something and eat that for breakfast for years until I suddenly switch and then stick with the new breakfast for years again. For the past few years my breakfast has been cocopops and a cup of earl grey, I love the taste of them! What’s your breakfast and do you eat the same breakfast each morning or do you eat something different every day?
I made these lemon bars last weekend and will be doing a recipe post for them soon. They turned out very well, very lemony and sweet. I am trying out the recipe with oranges instead of lemons next week.

The murder of a college professor has its roots in the Cold War: the new Oxford Dogwalkers mystery from award-winning YA writer Annie Dalton.”
Shortly before Christmas, Professor James Lowell is found brutally attacked in his rooms at Walsingham College, where Anna Hopkins works as an administrator. Baffled as to why anyone would wish to harm such a gentle, scholarly man, Anna discovers that Lowell had a connection with her fellow dogwalker, Isadora Salzman, who knew him as an undergraduate in the 1960s, a co-member of the so-called Oxford Six. It turns out that Isadora has been keeping a surprising secret all these years. But someone else knows about Isadora s secret: someone who has sent her a threatening, frightening letter.
Could the attack on Professor Lowell have its roots in a 50-year-old murder? And who is targeting Isadora and the surviving members of the Oxford Six? Anna, Isadora and Tansy, the dogwalking detectives, make it their business to find out.

An all-new Popcorn Shop Mystery bursts on the scene, featuring gourmet popcorn entrepreneur Rebecca Anderson and her poodle Sprocket.
Opening a gourmet popcorn shop was never on Rebecca Anderson’s bucket list. But after a failed marriage to a celebrity chef, she’s ready for her life to open up and expand. She has returned to her hometown of Grand Lake, Ohio, with her popcorn-loving poodle Sprocket to start a new business—naturally called POPS. As a delicious bonus, Cordelia “Coco” Bittles, a close family friend who has always been like a grandmother to Rebecca, owns the chocolate shop next door, and the two are thinking of combining their businesses.
But when Coco’s niece, Alice, discovers her on the floor of her chocolate shop, those dreams go up in smoke. The local sheriff thinks Coco was the victim of a robbery gone wrong, but Rebecca isn’t so sure. As suspects start popping up all over, Rebecca is determined to turn up the heat and bring the killer to justice in a jiffy!
Also the cover is really pretty in real life and it almost looks like it is drawn by hand with pencils.

Her pack is being hunted. He’s a bodyguard with a secret. The Wolf Hunter is targeting them both.
Owen Harding hasn’t shifted since he was in Agent Smith’s experimental cages—the only thing this ex-Army Texas boy is afraid of is what kind of beast he’s become. But with a hate group issuing more threats against the Wilding pack than you can shake a stick at, Owen’s doing what he can as a personal bodyguard. If only the Wilding girl he’s tasked with keeping alive wasn’t so damn sexy… and completely off limits.
Nova Wilding’s father was assassinated, leaving her a gaming company to run, a new game to release, and a pack full of wolves who want her for a mate… including a beta who’s determined to have Nova and her company. Choosing someone outside the pack will tear it apart, but Nova can’t stop watching the hot shifter who’s keeping watch over her.
When Nova barely escapes an attempt on her life, she finds herself in Owen’s arms… but her sexy new bodyguard is absolutely the wrong man at the wrong time. While Nova fights to keep her father’s business afloat, and Owen fights to keep her alive, the Wolf Hunter is playing a dangerous new game that might destroy them both.

The first 3 books in this series were 0.99$ for a limited time and it sounds like a fun series and I had some amazon gift card money left, so I couldn’t resist grabbing these.
