At long last, Barbara Ross fans get to celebrate the release of the latest Maine Clambake book, Muddled Through! The book takes place during mud season, a rite of spring in the northeast.
We’re also celebrating Book #6 in Cate Conte’s Cat Cafe Mystery Series, Gone But Not Furgotten. Maddie James has big plans for the summer season at JJ’s House of Purrs.
Wickeds, there’s so much good about spring and summer, but what bugs you? Besides the mud? And the occasional murder?
Let’s congratulate Barb and Liz/Cate, and finish up our June bugs series!
Sherry: I got to read an early version of Muddled Through and thought it was one of Barb’s best books. I can’t wait to get my hands on my copy of Gone But Not Furgotten! I love revisiting Daybreak Island! The heat bugs me in the summer. I used to be a hotter the better person but that has changed dramatically.
Liz/Cate: Thanks, Wickeds, and congrats, Barb! Looking forward to reading Muddled Through! I love pretty much everything about summer except mosquitos and black flies. But honestly, I’d gladly suffer through them longer if we could have more warm weather!
Edith/Maddie: I’m so excited to read both these books! So many congratulations, my friends. What bugs me about spring is how long it takes to warm up. We’ll get a few days of nice weather and then, boom. Back in chilly gray days, sometimes even a frost or a late snow . Summer? What’s not to love? Fresh produce and bare feet!
Jessie: Super congratulations Barb and Liz! It is so inspiring to witness all your successes! I tend to like each season in its time so there is nothing that comes to mind other than actual bugs, like ticks, that I dislike! By the time I am ready for the heat of summer to end the autumn with its cooler temperatures has usually arrived!
Barb: Thanks, Wickeds! I have to agree with Edith. The thing that bugs me about spring in Maine is it takes so long to get here. Long after friends in the northeast are talking about picnics and summer, we’re still riding the rollercoaster of cold, foggy days. Congratulations, Liz! I can’t wait to read Gone But Not Furgotten.
Julie: Congratulations Barb and Liz/Cate! What wonderful additions to my summer pile of books to be read. What bugs me about summer? Nothing. Honestly. Summer in New England is a joy.
Friends, what bugs you about summer? What are you looking forward to in Muddled Through and Gone But Not Furgotten?
