I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
I spent all of Tuesday and Wednesday with a mother of a headache - I haven't had a headache last more than a day since I was 10 - so I did not get my reading done and have lost out on my turn until tomorrow.

Weirdly, I balked when I first saw this one and it's really one of the easiest - I went with the publication date and chose: Miss Dimple Rallies to the Cause by Mignon F. Ballard
It's September 1943, and the town of Elderberry, Georgia, including their beloved first-grade teacher, Miss Dimple Kilpatrick, has exciting plans for the Bond Rally to support the troops fighting the war abroad. Miss Dimple's friend, Virginia Balliew, has agreed to chair the big event, with the help of Buddy Oglesby. But when children discover a skeleton at the edge of a field, and Buddy disappears along with the war bond money, it's clear that something is amiss in the little town; and Miss Dimple, along with her fellow teachers, is soon on the case.
