new plan?

WOW did I ever fail with this plan! I do find it interesting to know when I planned to read my review books and thought I'd modify/add to it.

This was going to be for 2010 but there are still a couple of weeks left of 2009.... Now, I've signed up for 11 Book Tours. Two are on the list but I don't know when the others will arrive so they'll need to squeeze in.

About the Series
When Betsy Devonshire arrived in *Excelsior, Minnesota, all she wanted was to visit her sister Margot and to get her life in order. She never dreamed her sister would give her a place to stay and a job at her needlecraft shop. In fact, things had never looked so good - until Margot was murdered…

The art of needlecraft requires patience, discipline, and creativity. So, too, does the art of detection. Just ask Betsy - who's learning that life in a small-town needlecraft shop can reveal an unexpected knack for knitting … and a hidden talent for unravelling crime.
