It's the last Friday of the month, which means that it is . . .
Book and a Recipe Book Club
Hosted by friend and author, Markee Anderson
I want to thank Markee for hosting this fun event, and especially for recommending this most recent book. I just LOVED this book. Such fun, great characters, clean, crisp writing with a nice dash of humor. I HIGHLY recommend this book for readers who enjoy those things in a book.
REMEMBER FRIENDS, everyone who leaves a comment today enters a chance to win a $10.00 Amazon gift card (how cool is that?). We'll be announcing the winner TOMORROW (Saturday, March 26) morning. The best way to assure that you are notified if you win, is to leave an email address, but if you don't want to do that, make sure you check back Saturday morning! If we don't hear from the winner within a week, we contact the runner up.
Now, without further ado . . . here's Markee:
This is a fun book with a wonderful premise, introducing the reader to the psychic’s life. Abby Cooper does readings for clients, but when one of her clients turns up dead, she’s in big trouble. Here’s the blurb from Amazon:
Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients-or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.
I read this book years ago, and re-read it yesterday. I was only going to skim it, but was pulled into the plot, once again. It’s fun to read and not very scary. The blind date she encounters is just adorable, from his personality alone. What a take-charge kind of guy!
So, what do you think of books about psychics? Have you ever known anyone who is psychic? What’s your take on the paranormal?
Here’s a recipe to get you dreaming…these are fantastic cookies!
1 pound brown sugar (2.5 cups)
2 cups sugar
½ pound butter
½ tablespoon vanilla
½ tablespoon white corn syrup
4 teaspoons baking soda
1.5 pounds crunchy peanut butter
9 cups quick cooking oatmeal

1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs, vanilla, and corn syrup. Mix with remaining ingredients. Roll into a ball and bake at 350 degrees. Large cookies bake for 12 minutes, while smaller cookies back for 9-10 minutes. Do not overbake.
