Sunday Post - 01/01/23

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ 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.

Monday, we did Christmas with Husband's side of the family. We even went over to his mom's house again on Tuesday to make sure we saw everyone before they went back to Georgia. Santa brought the kids a playground, but he didn't have the elves put it together for them so Husband and I have spent every afternoon working on it. We only have about an hour to an hour and a half from the time he gets off work until Baby Boy wakes up from nap. Like the rest of the country, we had record low temperatures for December until Thursday we were back up to the 60s and then 70s. I took the kids to my parents' house on Thursday to spend the weekend. The kids were actually anxious for me to leave so they could start their weekend. Husband and I went on the first date we've been on in months. We would have worked on the playground more on Friday, but it rained here. I did get my Christmas decorations down. I usually like to leave them up through the New Year, but it just made sense to take them down while the kids were away. We were also catching up on The Walking Dead this weekend as we were like 20+ episodes behind. I didn't get any reading done this weekend, but that's okay because I actually spent quite a lot of time working on upcoming blog posts and trying to get myself scheduled and prepped in advance like I used to do. Happy New Year to everyone. I hope every one of you has a great start to 2023!

Goodreads description--Stephanie Plum's career has taken more wrong turns than a student driver on the Jersey Turnpike, and her love life is a hopeless tangle. In order to save someone dear to her, she'll have to straighten things out in Twisted Twenty-Six the latest, novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

Grandma Mazur is a widow...again. This time her marriage lasted a whole 45 minutes. The unlucky groom was one Jimmy Rosolli, local gangster, lothario (senior division) and heart attack waiting to happen...well, the waiting's over.

It's a sad day, but if she can't have Jimmy at least Grandma can have all the attention she wants as the dutiful widow. But some kinds of attention are not welcomed, particularly when Jimmy's former "business partners" are convinced that his widow is keeping the keys to their financial success for herself.

As someone who has spent an entire career finding bad guys, a set of missing keys should be no challenge for Stephanie Plum. Problem is, the facts are as twisted as a boardwalk pretzel with mustard.

That's it for my shelves and recaps of my past and upcoming week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Any bookish news you want to talk about? Let me know!
