Thankfully No Quiz

We’re taking a week off since many of us are preparing for travel or lots of visitors.  Last week’s Initial Quiz answers are up here.

My favorite misses were Plum Good Wodehouse from Carol M and Calamity Jane Cherryh from Jill (although all of Jill’s are great-you should take a look :).  I’ll be back next week with the last quiz of the year.  We’re up to a $35 B&N gift card for the winner.

I asked for help a few weeks ago so I could finish the States Challenge and I’m asking again 🙂  I need suggestions for the following states (the shorter the better if I hope to finish the challenge).

Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Massachusetts, Nevada, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia

If you’ve already sent me suggestions for these I may have had a problem getting from my library so let me know again and I’ll another look.  Thank you so much for your help.

I am extremely grateful for my book blogging buddies.

    OK, here’s a few suggestions for your remaining states:

    Indiana – Hilda Johansson historical mysteries – Jeanne Dams is author, also the Abby Knight flower shop mysteries by Kate Collins – the last ones should be short cozies. Same with the Maggie O’Neil cozies by Madelyn Alt.

    Massachusetts – Sheila Connolly’s mysteries starring Meg Corey and her apple orchard. Joanne Dobson writes a mystery series about Karen Pelletier, an English professor. Lisa Garner’s series and may I give a big shoutout for Tess Gerritsen’s Rizzoli and Isles series – THE SURGEON is the first one. There are lots of mysteries set in Boston.

    South Dakota – Lori Armstrong writes mysteries set in this state. I hear good things about her Mercy Gunderson series.

    That’s all I’ve got. Good luck!

    Indiana: When Lightning Strikes by Meg Cabot

    Hawaii: From Here to Eternity by James Jones – Ohhhh! Skip the book, rent the movie! Famous beach scene with Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr….

    Delaware: Hawkes Harbor by S.E. Hinton

    Livvie’s Song by Sharlene MacLaren – Indiana
    I second the D.D. Warren series by Lisa Gardner for MA – Faith by Jennifer takes place in Boston
    Skipping A Beat by Sarah Pekkanen for West Virginia

    What about Black Hills by Nora Roberts (Romantic Suspense) set in South Dakota
    and I second Kay’s suggestion for Tess Gerritsen’s Rizzoli and Isles series – LOVE it.

    I can thoroughly recommend The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams – Utah

    The Stone Diaries features Indiana. Massachusetts should be easy – a lot of books set on Cape Cod lately it seems but nothing short is coming to mind. You could read The Bell Jar by Plath. And it’s not too long.
