This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
Happy Monday everyone! The weather has finally decided to cooperate and be more spring like. Of course this is wreaking havoc with my allergies, but I still prefer the sunshine over it being cold and rainy.
I am continuing my theme of mysteries for my Goodread posts and this week I chose one by a favorite local author and luckily enough it is set in Seattle as well. I loved the first book in this series last year and am looking forward to reading this second one. I have a bit of a wait though as it doesn’t come out till the fall.
Flight Risk (The Booking Agents #2) by Cherie Priest

Summary from GoodReads:
When psychic travel agent Leda Foley is approached by a man searching for his sister, she quickly agrees to help. The missing woman disappeared with a vintage orange car, a fat sack of her employer’s cash, and a grudge against her philandering husband—a man who never even reported her missing.
Meanwhile, Seattle PD detective Grady Merritt has temporarily misplaced his dog. While he’s passing out bright pink “Lost” flyers at the Mount Rainier visitors center, the wayward pooch appears—with a human leg in his mouth.
Thanks to DNA matching, Grady soon learns that Mr. Leg has something to do with Leda’s new client, and soon the two cases are tangled.
Theories abound, but law enforcement is low on leads. Lucky for Grady, Leda has a few ideas that might just be crazy enough to work. They’ll need one yellow dog, a fair share of teamwork, and perhaps a bit of Klairvoyant Karaoke to piece the clues together.
I just love that cover as well! Isn’t that dog just adorable with the leg in its mouth? If you haven’t yet read Grave Reservations you should give it a try especially if you like cozy mysteries with a bit of humor and a lot of heart.
