My Impressions:

If you like cozy mysteries and want a wonderful message of faith, check out Mary Nealy’s (aka Mary Connealy) Bury The Lead, book 1 in The Historical Society Murders series. Melnik is a small Nebraska town filled with characters with big attitudes. There is enough quirks and cranks in this town to keep the laughs rolling in. Romance is also in the air, and did I mention a faith message? Yes it is all here. I found the book funny, sweet, and filled with truth. A quick read just perfect for a lazy day of reading. It and the other 2 books are also available for Kindle at just $2.99! So check them out!
