Die Again, Mr. Holmes by Anna Elliott & Charles Veley

“The world is full of obvious things that no body by any chance ever observes”. Die Again, Mr Holmes by Anna Elliott & Charles Veley is the latest book from the Sherlock Holmes & Lucy James Mystery Series — which provides readers young and old with a fresh yet faithful reimagining of the Great Detective.

“There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact” In the series – by father-daughter author duo Charles Veley and Anna Elliott, historical novelist behind the Twilight of Avalon trilogy and The Pride & Prejudice Chronicles – Holmes, as brilliant and engaging as ever, is the father of Lucy James: an independent, modern-minded American actress living in Victorian London who inherited her father’s intelligence, detective skills, and bravery.

Each book centers on Sherlock and Lucy as they collaborate on solving a crime, and contains clean language, exciting conflicts, and imaginative mysteries in the Conan Doyle tradition. Like its predecessors, Die Again, Mr. Holmes — the latest and eighth book in the series — can easily be enjoyed as a standalone novel or as a part of the series. “When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth”.

A Family Birthday Reunion

A Birthday celebration is always a family celebration.  Fun to gather around the birthday cake and sing the birthday song.   

Fun to share ice cream Oreo cookie cake from Baskin Robbins, even in the cold dreary month of February. But the most fun, at this birthday celebration, was the presence of my nephew. He’s been MIA for over a year and just like the prodigal son he returned, but not alone.

He brought with him two very nice people. They made this birthday a true Happy Birthday! Not just for my son ( who just turned 42 – UGH) but for our whole family.

Welcome back, nephew. You gave us all a gift this birthday…

Chick Flick the Musical invites you to join Karen, Dawn, Sheila, and Meg as they get together to unwind, watch a chick flick, and play their favorite drinking game. A good friend will help you from losing your mind but a great friend will join you in the craziness!!!

As the festivities proceed and the tequila flows, can the power of meet cutes and makeover montages save the day as relationship drama and career crises bubble to the surface? Friends take us by the hand and remind us we are not alone in the journey.

Celebrating the healing power of sisterhood, laughter, and life lessons from the movies we know and love, Chick Flick the Musical is ultimately about life’s greatest love story: friendship. Friends make life better.
