Murder on the Orient Express
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie (1930s)
I don't believe I had ever completely read this book before. I had seen a movie version but not finished the book. The book is definately more detailed. -- Added by Roundaboutgirl on 03/08/2014

The Enchanted Barn
The Enchanted Barn by Grace Livingston Hill (1910s)
This was a very sweet story. It seems to be a simpler time yet people did have struggles and had to work very hard to make ends meet. Sometimes I think it's a good idea to return to basics. If you read it, part of Chapter 5 is (I believe) accidently repeated in Chapter 6. I think it must have been inserted in the book twice. -- Added by Roundaboutgirl on 02/21/2014

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg (1980s)
I didn't know which decade to put this in since it covers almost a century! As it was written in the 1980's, I chose that one. This book is a lot more in-depth than the movie. There were some surprises but I think I will let you find out for yourself. Keep in mind that the book was written about a different time and in many respects, a different world. -- Added by Roundaboutgirl on 02/03/2014

Princess Elizabeth's Spy
Princess Elizabeth's Spy by Susan Elia MacNeal (1940s)
I found this book very interesting and captivating. I kept hoping I could check out the book format so I didn't have to wait for the reader to get to the end. Please don't misunderstand. I actually liked the reader but I wanted to know the end quicker. I assume this book is a work of fiction but I liked that she used real life events and wove the story around them. Who knows? It could have happened. Anything is possible and with all of the secrets of WWII, it might have. I will definately read the next one in the series. I'm hooked. -- Added by Roundaboutgirl on 01/29/2014

The Prodigal Girl
The Prodigal Girl by Grace Livingston Hill (1920s)
I'd forgotten how well Grace Livingston Hill could write. This is funny and sad at the same time. It's definately something I see happening today. Glad the ending was happy. -- Added by Roundaboutgirl on 01/14/2014

Bookplate Special
Bookplate Special by Lorna Barrett (2000s)
This is the third book in the "Booktown Mystery" Series. Though this series is a little more gruesome than I normally read, I think it still qualifies as a "cozy." There is a twist at the end. I definately thought the killer was one of the other people in the room. -- Added by Roundaboutgirl on 01/12/2014
