It’s all good – hubby has his likes, and I have mine. To me, watching the performances on the award shows is like going to a free concert with lots of great singers. Mysteries and country music help me cope with life’s stresses (and we sure have plenty of those this year). The good news is that I’ve had more time lately to enjoy reading mysteries and adding favorite songs to my play list.

Sabrina quit her paralegal job in Houston, moved back to Lavender, Texas, and is trying to write a mystery. Her characters aren’t the cooperative type, though, in spite of the fact she’s working in the Hot Stuff coffee shop with the Bee Gees singing in the background—if that’s not the right atmosphere, what is?
