Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Never too old to cringe... or what happens when your mom follows you on GoodReads

Sixth Grave on the Edge  - Darynda Jones

So I get to my mom's house yesterday and one of the first things she says to me is "I read that book you recommended and I didn't like it all!"  Which leaves me scrambling, wracking my brain to figure out what book I've recently recommended to my mom?!?!

 

Then I see Sixth Grave on the Edge in her donation pile.  I NEVER would have recommended Charlie Davidson to my 90 year old ultra-religious mom.  When I asked her what in the world ever possessed her to buy and read that book, her response?  "Because I saw your review of it on GoodReads."  

 

I have no one to blame but myself; I introduced her to GoodReads.  But I did cringe when I realized she now knows how much I love a series about the Grim Reaper in love with the Son of Satan.  Moms are moms no matter how old you get.  :)
