Sunday Salon: Valentine's Weekend

This week's winner of a $10 gift card to Mystery Lovers Bookshop is Michelle at The True Book Addict. If you're feeling lucky, enter by Saturday for next week's drawing.

Cooking. We're picking fresh lemons today from our yard. Jeff's making a lemon meringue pie for my Valentine's gift. This was my grandpa's favorite and ended up being mine too. I'm not sure yet what recipe he's using. Maybe he'll try the one from Paige Shelton's mystery, Farm Fresh Murder.

New Business. Do any of you stay in bed and breakfasts when you travel? I became a fan of them long ago. Last month we decided to turn our home here on Kauai into one. I'm picking books for the room. Maybe the bed and breakfast murder mysteries by Mary Daheim would be good? You can view our listing on Airbnb. And if you come to Kauai, be sure to consider a stay with us.

Next Review. I have a book review for TLC due tomorrow. It's a work of nonfiction which I seldom write about. Come back tomorrow and hear my thoughts about Triumph of the City by Edward Glaeser.

Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Yummy! Lemon meringue pie...especially when it's made from home-grown lemons.

    Bed and breakfasts sound delightful...I've always wanted to try one.

    Here's my SUNDAY SALON

  2. I like bed and breakfast places and now to "know" someone in Kauai with tempting! I loved Kauai when we were there!

  3. Jeff is a keeper. What a thoughtful gift for you on Valentine's day.

    Every year I host a potluck dinner where everyone is asked to bring a lemon dish, from entrees to desserts. Everything has to have lemons in it. I would love to know what recipe Jeff is using.

    The lemon is the quintessential fruit that makes food sparkle. It has become synonymous with the word refreshing.

    Here’s to a prosperous, happy and Valentine's Day for both of you,

  4. Happy Valentines Day and happy munching with the lemon meringue pie!

  5. I know I already thanked you in my email, but I wanted to thank you again here so...thank you!

    Hope you had a lovely Valentine's day!


Aloha! Thanks for taking time to talk story. Your comment will be posted soon.
