Thanks @woodviewlfl 🌹 Posted @withregram@woodviewlfl Thank you so much to author Kate Collins for her gift of Statue of Limitations for our Little Free Library! Mysteries are one of our most popular genres in our library! She also sent along several bookmarks that highlight several of books! Three of her books have been turned into Hallmark movies! They include Mum’s the Word, Snipped in the Bud and Dearly Departed! How cool is that?!?! In this delightful new series by the New York Times bestselling author of the Flower Shop Mysteries, Athena Spencer comes back home to work with her crazy big Greek family at their garden center. But she never expected a return to her roots would mean protecting her family from murder . . . After her divorce, Athena has returned to coastal Michigan to work in her family’s garden center and raise her son, while also caring for a mischievous wild raccoon and fending off her family’s annoying talent for nagging. Working alone at the garden center one night, Athena is startled by a handsome stranger who claims to be the rightful owner of a valuable statue her grandfather purchased at a recent estate sale. But she has even bigger problems on her plate. The powerful Talbot family from whom her pappoús bought the statue is threatening to raze the shops on Greene Street’s “Little Greece” to make way for a condo. The recent death of the family’s patriarch already seemed suspicious, but now it’s clear that a murderer is in their midst. Athena will have to live up to her warrior goddess namesake to protect her family from a killer and save their community from ruin . . . #bookstagram #bibliophile #bookshelf #bookclub #bookworm #bookblog #books #tbrlist #toberead #bookcommunity #booksofig #booklover #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booklove #bookstack #bookaholic #booknerd #goodreads #shelfie #igreads #mybookfeature #readersofinstagram #bookphotography #littlefreelibrary #ashlandohio #ashland #katecollins #statueoflimitations

I love a paperback mystery with a punny title and Kate Collins’ Flower Shop Mysteries always hit the spot. (Especially cuddles up in my cozy robe) In Evil in Carnations, Marco and Abby are back together but their bliss is almost immediately interrupted when Abby’s roommate’s bad date ends with murder. Abby is so charming. I love her family and her employees at Bloomers. I love Jillian’s funny role in this book especially. #reading #massmarketpaperbacks #massmarketsneedlovetoo #cozymystery #mystery #flowershopmysteries #katecollins #evilincarnations @katecollinsbooks

Happy Birthday to my wonderful little big-girl in my heart who has made my life so amazing in a million ways. Being your mother definitely brings more happiness than I know what to do with, and I don't know what I'd do without you. Happy birthday, baby. I love you so much. #KateCollins @cathrinekatee

Mi chiamo Ira Levinson. Sono un uomo comune che si è innamorato di una donna straordinaria. In questa sala potete ammirare alcune opere d’arte che non hanno prezzo. Ruth aveva un occhio incredibile per il talento, mentre io avevo occhi solo per lei. Per me la gioia non era tanto nel collezionare opere d’arte ma nell’amare la persona con cui le collezionavo, la mia adorata Ruth. La felicità che le davano questi dipinti era sconfinata e condividere la sua felicità è stato il grande privilegio della mia vita. Abbiamo festeggiato, lottato, sofferto, raggiunto dei compromessi ma soprattutto ci siamo amati. Il vero capolavoro è stato il viaggio più lungo che abbiamo fatto insieme. Questa cosa chiamata vita. Non c’è dipinto a cui non rinuncerei senza battere ciglio per risentire la sua voce o rivedere il suo sorriso solo un’ultima volta. #larispostaènellestelle #iralevinson #ruth #sophiadanko #lukecollins #intrecci #storie #amore #passione #márcia #katecollins #lettere #ricordi #northcarolina #thelongestride #georgetillmanjr #nicholassparks #arte #newyork #rodeo #torero #cowboy #asta #jackhuston #oonachaplin #brittrobertson #scotteastwood #alanalda #melissabenoist #lolitadavidovich

“This is a wedding, not a beer hall!” Phoebe reels from her husband’s lack of restraint on the dance floor, as Jeremy woos Natalie with knightly decorum 💖 #AllMyChildren 📖 #1988 #PhoebeTylerWallingford #RuthWarrick #LangleyWallingford #LouisEdmonds #NatalieHunter #KateCollins #JeremyHunter #JeanLeClerc #PalmerCortlandt #JamesMitchell #VintageSoaps 🧼📺

Looking back on this legendary storyline, it was actually so essential to make Janet Green sympathetic to the audience before she began the plot to take her sister’s life. If they had just made her entitled and obnoxious without any self-loathing, I don’t think the story would be so widely remembered today... and as over the top as it became, the premise was actually quite sad and haunting. In that sense, it has a great deal in common with “The Life and Loves of a She-Devil” by Fay Weldon. By the way, Janet and Hayley @kellyripa bonding over the grunge record is a scream 😭 #AllMyChildren 📖 #1991 #JanetGreen #NatalieHunter #KateCollins #HayleyVaughan #KellyRipa #AdamChandler #DavidCanary #VintageSoaps 🧼📺

❔❓What are you reading or what did you finish last? _ Happy FRIDAY! Guys it’s going to be a beautiful day here and I might actually sit outside because it’s supposed to be not freezing cold. And I finished a book! One I can highly recommend especially if you need some cozy light vibes right now! _ This is going to be a new favorite series for me! I really loved Athena's spirit and wits and how caring she can be for both her family, her neighbors, and even strangers. I don't know what it was, but I had a crush on Case almost immediately and now I am rooting for them hardcore. _ I just love how these characters are described and developed, which I think added so much to this story. Athena had been through a lot and I appreciated her struggle to start her life over, while also trying to maintain her own identity in a large and loud Greek family (while coping with how differently her son is taking it). _ Though I found the ending to be a bit predictable, it was very fast paced and fun to read. I am really looking forward to more books in this series with Athena, Case and the other characters. _ Thanks to @kensingtonbooks for the free copy! #partner . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookish #booksofinstagram #alwaysreading #cozyvibes #homelibrary #booklover #vscobookstagram #bookaholic #bookblogger #reader #booktography #cozyhome #booksharks #bookaesthetic #morethanjustaprettybook #bookreview #cozymystery #katecollins

The moment with Natalie and her mirror recalls a famous #Rubens painting of the goddess Venus (added to this post). This was Natalie’s voluptuous vixen period before she transitioned into romantic heroine, with the designer suits and Princess Di hairdo... and honestly, I loved both looks for her! 💖 #AllMyChildren 📖 #1987 #NatalieHunter #KateCollins #PalmerCortlandt #JamesMitchell #VintageSoaps 🧼📺 #PeterPaulRubens #VenusAtAMirror #Goddess #Venus #Melodrama

First in a new cozy series! Review below...⁠ .⁠ If you enjoyed My Big Fat Greek Wedding, you’ll enjoy the crazy and loving Greek family in this book. For me this is what really made Statue of Limitations a good read. I wanted more of the interaction between the family members and will be looking forward to that in future books in the Goddess of Greene Street Mystery series. And more of Oscar the raccoon too, of course!⁠ ⁠ As for the mystery itself, I think most people will know right away the bad guys. But since the characters that Kate Collins writes are so developed it’s easy to overlook how easy the mystery was to solve. There were some red herrings to try to make it more difficult to figure out, so maybe you’ll be one who takes a bit longer to see whodunit.⁠ ⁠ There were a few times when Athena was really ditzy when it came to securing evidence and I wanted to smack her! I know the main characters sometimes have to make mistakes to keep up the drama and tension, but at one point towards the end, I was like, Really?!?⁠ ⁠ There is a kind of love triangle in Statue of Limitations, and we all know how I feel about those, but by the end of the book it was resolved, and I’m glad she gave one of the men the boot. And I realize why she was dating him, but I don’t know if I could have kept dating him if I was in her place… but that could just be the age difference, besides the cultural differences.⁠ ⁠ A fun start to a new cozy mystery series, and I’m looking forward to book two in 2021.⁠ .⁠ #cozy #cozymystery #mystery #cozymysteryseries #cozymysterylover #cozymysterybooks #mysterybooks #mysteries #statueoflimitations #katecollins #kensington #booknerd #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #constantreader #alwaysreading #booksharks #iread #igreads #amreading #goodreadschallenge #bookstagramfreature #bookreview #bookblogger #bookbloggerlife #bookreviewer

Another wonderful review from @christine_bookshelfies 🌿🌷🌿 Happy publication day to this wonderful book! Thank you to @netgalley for the review copy. This is the first book in the goddess of greene street series. Athena Spenser has moved back to her hometown after her divorce. Her family's diner and garden center are in danger of being destroyed in order to put up condos. When two different murders occur, Athena believes the murders and the condo project are connected. She teams up with Case Donneley, who is looking for proof of purchase for a statue Athena's grandfather purchased, after he gets accused of murder. I thought this was a good first book in the series. It set up the characters really well. I liked the greek culture that was mixed in. It wasn't overwhelming and was just the right mixture. I liked how well Case and Athena worked together. They seemed like they had been working together forever. I can't wait to read more in this series. #katecollins #statueoflimitations #cozymystery

Posted by @kristy_gonewiththepages New Release Today ***I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. 4⭐⭐⭐⭐ Statue of Limitations by Kate Collins is a fun cozy mystery. Athena has moved back home with her son to live with her big Greek family.  Case is searching for a missing Greek statue that belonged to his family. Together they get caught in a murder and have to work together to find out what really happened. Have you see My Big Fat Greek Wedding?  I loved this family. Athena has a large and caring family. Sometimes they are too caring and too in her business. I really enjoyed reading Athena's blog posts and getting more insight into her personality. This is the first book in the Goddess of Greene Street Mysteries and a spinoff from the 19 Flower Shop Mysteries which I have not read but will be reading. I enjoyed the close knit Greek community.  I would love to read more about this town and people. Thank you to Kensington Books for my free review copy.

Thank you @netgalley for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own. When I get asked for recommendations on good cozies to start with, Kate Collin’s Flower Shop series is always high on that list. It’s a long running series that I just absolutely adore. I was beyond excited when I heard that she was starting this new series, A Goddess of Greene St. Mystery. Not only does it take place in a gardening center, but it centers around a really loud, fun, meddlesome Greek family. The characters in this book are beyond fantastic. They work together, eat endless amounts of scrumptious sounding food and know everyone’s business. They all play great parts throughout this story. Athena is the lead character. I love that she’s a working mom who is starting over after a nasty divorce. The fact that she writes an anonymous blog and no one realizes they are her inspiration for the popular rants, makes for some really funny scenes. Her son is the sweetest as he begs to be called Niko and learns Greek sayings too. The mystery starts when Athena stumbles upon a charming stranger examining a valuable statue within the gardening center. He claims it was stolen from his family. A few hours later he is taped leaving the residents of the person thought to have made the original sell. Problem is that person is found dead shortly afterwards. Athena doesn’t quite believe the accusation and soon finds herself harboring a fugitive on her grandpa’s houseboat. Talk about a fun setting. The chemistry between Athena and Chase / Dimitri was fantastic. I loved all of their interactions and smart dialogue. They seems like real sleuths since they didn’t stumble upon all of the clues or answers too quickly. The mysteries definitely held my interest as I tried to sort out all of the numerous clues and red herrings. Overall, this was a wonderful start to a new series. Great characters and a fast-paced, captivating story full of humor and plenty of mystery. I look forward to reading a sequel!!

Check out this amazing paint pouring technique using a hairdryer to create the cells. Pour the paint into the middle of the surface. First, push the paint together in the centre with the hair dryer, and then spread it out to the edges of the surface.

Natalie’s spirit visits her son on Christmas night in Kate Collins’ very welcome return to the screen after several years. This appearance was a few months after Princess Di was killed and I suspect it was made for that reason, as not only were they quite similar in look and presence, but Natalie had also perished after a car wreck in an eerie foreshadowing. Happily, unlike reality, ghostly visitations are a staple of this medium and so can provide some level of closure when a beloved character sheds this mortal coil... #AllMyChildren 📖 #1997 #NatalieHunter #KateCollins #VintageSoaps 🧼 📺

We read them multiple times a day. . 📖A ROSE FROM THE DEAD by Kate Collins 🔍🔍🔍 Abby is amused by the black humor of the usually somber “death professionals” who are attending the Midwestern Funeral Directors Association’s regional convention. Even organizer Sybil Blount—known for her cutthroat business practices and the signature rose she wears in her wig—comes as a surprise…especially when her corpse is found in a closed casket.  When Abby’s friend Delilah Dove is accused of the crime, Abby shifts into full investigation mode and learns that Sybil’s enemies included the prankster sons of a big-time funeral director, an eco-friendly purveyor of “green burials,” and a strange Goth girl who captures the “music” of departing souls on her tape recorder. It’s up to Abby and her P.I. boyfriend, Marco, to look beyond the trappings of death and find out who really loved Sybil—and who loved her not. . . . #bookstagram #bookblogger #octoberreads #babybooks #llamallamabooks #boardbooks #katecollins #cozymystery #flowershopmysteries #berkley #annadewdney #lauranumeroff #sandraboynton #katigraceblogs
