#amreading A Little Murder by Cindy Davis

East River

Hey everyone! I’m back to let you know what I’m reading. In case you’d like to read it too, the book is…drum roll please…okay, I’m being way over dramatic here…the book, ladies and…do we have a gentleman? Yes! You in the back (I accidentally stole this line from John Mahoney’s character in the movie Reality Bites. Oops.)!

Here it is, without further ado…I am reading A Little Murder by Cindy Davis. What is this about? How to make a soufflé? No!

I think a murder might be involved. Pretty sure! I absolutely love a good whodunnit so I’m ready to dive in! And guess what? I’m going to dive into the setting of this book! You better believe I will! This book is set in Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire! Oh yeah…this New York City girl is headed to the lake! She will dive in boldly (if it’s at least 90 degrees out and not freezing water) and take you on a tour of good ol’ Lake Winni. You did see a bit of the Winni here but that had nothing to do with a book tour, so this will be cooler. Cross your fingers.

If this is your first time here, check out my last tour: my Annie Van Tour. So far I’ve read books set in NYC and use the books as inspiration to take myself out on a tour of the city. A book date in the city, if you will. I’m so excited to be doing a traveling book tour this time. Maybe it’ll be the first of many more? We’ll see!

While I start this murder mystery, why don’t you check out pictures from my last book tour that didn’t make it on my post?

Here you go!

Lake Rules: Relax Relax Relax

 

Lake Winnipesaukee

I didn’t make up the rules, I just follow them. I think I got the rules off some sign and I wholeheartedly agree! It’s instant relaxation coming to Lake Winnipesaukee.

My regularly scheduled post has been delayed because I came up here to of course relax and celebrate Father’s Day and my birthday.  I’m just being nice, it’s all about my birthday. My gift to my father is me. 😉

Since I won’t have my Annie van post up yet, please check out my book review and sneak peek into my East Village tour inspired by the book, here. The full tour should be up by Sunday, cross your fingers!

Until then, I wanted to share a little bit of Lake Winni with you all. This post is dedicated to my awesome Twitter friend @teamechavarre. When I did my first tour inspired by a book set in NYC, the blog post got about 3 views, no lie. I felt a bit dejected and wasn’t sure if I would do it again. It was so fun and I loved doing it, but I wanted people to read it too. So then Sarah Smith comes along aka teamechavarre and she starts liking, retweeting, and commenting about how amazing it was. She made my day, week, year, everything! Since then I’ve kept it up and couldn’t be happier about it. Thank you Sarah for your continued support!

Sarah is also an awesome writer who is working on a book, which is sure to be just as awesome as she is. You can also check out her writing now by going to her smokin’ hot blog.

Sarah Writes Smut! Does she ever! Makes me blush. You will surely be tantalized so check it out here!

As promised to Sarah, here are my Lake Winni pics. Enjoy!

I love when I get visits from mama ducks and her ducklings!

Lake Winni duck

This one is smart. On our deck, we have a bird feeder that a squirrel tries to hack into thus knocking lots of seeds on the ground below. The chipmunks below are happy about that and so is this duck!

Speaking of chipmunks…

When I’m here, I spend a lot of my time sitting in front of the lake reading and feeding the chipmunks. I end up spending more time feeding these guys because they keep coming back for more and more! They will run up right to my lap to get some seeds. I’m the chipmunk whisperer!

Lake Winnipesaukee Loon
Can you see the loon?

Closer look!

When you hear a loon or two on the lake, that’s the ultimate relaxation moment.

If you’re curious, you can hear their sounds on this YouTube video.

Happy Birthday to me!

Best for last as always:

Winni

Winni Girl! She’s my little niece named after Lake Winnipesaukee. Love this girl!

That’s all for now. Might have some more Lake Winni posts this summer. I’m looking for a book set here, but don’t know if I’ve found a good one yet. We’ll see! I’m open to suggestions.

Don’t forget to come back for my #Annievan tour!

Thanks for reading! If you’re not currently by a lake, you can still find ways to work relaxation into your everyday life. I know I will try too when I’m back in crazy New York. Just think: relax relax relax.

Edit: #Annivan tour is now up!
