  1. It’s a thrill to see signs of life this first month of our début. Beautify all pages with conversation and stay alert for contests. Angie, way to strategize! You achieved “a hat trick” with one book (a hockey term: the same player scores three goals in one game – upon which the audience traditionally throws hats onto the ice). Your title is a flower, a paranormal element puts it into “Ethereal” (whereupon *I* am tempted to read it), and you also fulfill our colour pallet. Joanne’s “Silver Rain” carried all over the place too. Applause!

  2. Congratulations to JoAnne for finishing part A! I watch our reviews come in and could see, she or Angie would make an announcement early in our game. I will post a higher choice of levels next year. As a matter of fact, I considered raising the bar right away. Would that create frustration or enjoyment? Do consider this a home for extra colours despite being done.

    Now that we’ve been running 3 months, prize activities will get underway too. :-) I’d better alert everyone: the “My Kind Of Mystery” main page has already been hiding a portal, with a higher option! Yours enthusiastically, Carolyn.

    Thanks Carolyn. I’ll add the author name as well for future entries starting with Haunt Me Still which I added under Enchanting today.
    I included the Frangipani Hotel under Plants for the Frangipani part of the title. It’s the common name for Plumeria (see
    Thanks again for hosting this interesting challenge. I hope to have fun with it.
    Take care, Shonna

    • It’s lovely to hear from you. A librarian would not misfile, even with that impressive flourish of entries. ;) If you also have German heritage, well then we know that eye for detail. I’m happy to learn about plants and am sure if not ‘hotel’, you’ll find many substitutes for ‘buildings & structures’. It’s my greatest pleasure to find people having fun with my trio of groups. I think what’s nice about this one is, if the occasional person doesn’t read ethereal subjects or mystery; “Gentle Spectrums” fits anything. Sincerely, Carolyn.

        I am German (Mennonite) on my mother’s side Carolyn, and am compelled to organize things. I’m always buying magazines that promise organizing tips.

  4. Our religious base was Lutheran but a German looks like a German. You must resemble your Mother. I don’t buy magazines but have that tendency to do things all-too-thoroughly. Our men are a different story; brisk, nonchalent!
