B is for Burglar, Kinsey Millhone #2 de Sue Grafton

Sinopse: Finding wealthy Elaine Boldt seems like a quickie case to Kinsey Millhone. The flashy widow was last seen wearing a $12,000 lynx coat, leaving her condo in Santa Teresa for her condo in Boca Raton. But somewhere in between, she vanished. Kinsey’s case goes from puzzling to sinister when a house is torched, an apartment is burgled of worthless papers, the lynx coat comes back without Elaine, and her bridge partner is found dead. Soon Kinsey’s clues begin to form a capital M—not for missing, but for murder: and plenty of it.

C is for Corpse, Kinsey Millhone #3 de Sue Grafton

Sinopse: My name is Kinsey Millhone. I’m a licensed private investigator…thirty two, twice divorced. I like being alone and I suspect that my independence suits me better than it should…’
Kinsey met Bobby Callahan in the gym on Monday morning.
His story was hard to credit: a murderous assault by a tailgating car on a lonely rural road, a roadside smash into a canyon 400 feet below, his Porsche a ruin, his best friend dead, and his memory severely impaired. He was convinced someone was trying to kill him.
By Thursday, he was dead.
But Kinsey wasn’t going back on a deal. She had been hired to prevent a murder. Now she was looking for the murderer…

D is for Deadbeat, Kinsey Millhone #4 de Sue Grafton

Sinopse: D IS FOR DEADBEAT. He called himself Alvin Limardo, and the job he had for Kinsey was cut-and-dried: locate a kid who’d done him a favor and pass on a check for $25,000. It was only later, after he’d stiffed her for her retainer, that Kinsey found out his name was Daggett. John Daggett. Ex-con. Inveterate liar. Chronic drunk. And dead. The cops called it an accident–death by drowning. Kinsey wasn’t so sure.
Pulled into the detritus of a dead man’s life, Kinsey soon realizes that Daggett had an awful lot of enemies. There’s the daughter who grew up with a cheating drunk for a father, and the wife who’s become a religious nut in response to an intolerable marriage. There’s the lady who thought she was Mrs. Daggett–and has the bruises to prove it–only to discover the legal Mrs. D. And there are the drug dealers out $25,000. But most of all, there are the families of the five people John Daggett killed, victims of his wild, drunken driving. The D.A. called it vehicular manslaughter and put him away for two years. The families called it murder and had very good reason to want John Daggett dead.
Deft, cunning, and clever, this latest Millhone mystery also confronts some messy truths, for, as Kinsey herself says, “Some debts of the human soul are so enormous only life itself is sufficient forfeit”–but as she’d be the first to admit, murder is not a socially acceptable solution.

Be With Me, de Maya Banks

Sinopse: So much closer than just friends.
Hutch Bishop, Cam Douglas, and Sawyer Pritchard were juvenile delinquents with a reckless and wildly sexy side. But they had more in common than that. They had Regina Fallon, a wealthy but lonely girl from the right side of the tracks who formed an unusual friendship with the boys. She felt protected. She felt needed. She felt loved…for the first time in her life. By all three.
Today, she’s a police officer, dedicated to her badge, and wary of reigniting her relationship with the hot trio after one night of passion left her confused—and stunned—by what they wanted from her. But when a mysterious attempt is made on her life, Hutch, Cam, and Sawyer jump in to protect her again. Now, the four are forming an all-new bond. It’s more exciting, more intense, and—as a killer looms in the shadows—more dangerous than ever before.

The Job, Fox and O’Hare #3 Janet Evanovich e Lee Goldberg

Sinopse: The third book in the exciting and suspenseful Fox and O’Hare series from Janet Evanovich, No. 1 bestselling author of the iconic Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, bestselling author of the Monk series.

Catching bad guys is what Special Agent Kate O’Hare does. Working side-by-side with them… not so much.

When the FBI teamed her up with master criminal Nick Fox, they gave her no choice.

Now the ex-Navy Seal has a world-class conman as a partner, and keeping track of him is a full-time job.

Especially when Fox is caught on camera stealing a priceless work of art, taking him right from being the FBI’s most covert operative, back to the top of America’s most-wanted.

Only Kate suspects all is not what it seems. Nick Fox is no common thief, and snatch and grab just isn’t his style. Someone is setting him up, and it’s down to Kate to figure out why – before Nicolas Fox, master of disguise, is beaten at his own game.

Lies, hustles and high-stakes take-downs: it’s all in a day’s work when Fox and O’Hare get THE JOB . . .

Costura Criativa #Aventais e Pegas

Tenho andado entretida com os meus tecidos e fiz mais algumas peças, desta vez para a cozinha.

costura-criativa-22-1-1 costura-criativa-22-1-2

Um avental diferente, com bastante roda e que prende com um botão na parte de trás. Fica um efeito muito bonito, tipo uma saia.

As pegas são a combinar, enfia-se a mão lá dentro e é mais fácil de usar.

 

costura-criativa-22-1-4  costura-criativa-22-1-3

Com este tecido fiz um avental “normal” e umas pegas em forma de coração.

Eu adoro este tecido, já fiz várias peças com ele, tanto para a cozinha como para capas de livros, porta lenços e porta moedas, fica mesmo bonito.

 

 

costura-criativa-22-1-5

Este tecido com os cupcakes fica muito bem nas peças de cozinha.

Neste caso fiz dois aventais, para adulto e criança. Já tinha feito pegas, uma toalha, uma caixa multiusos e mais uma série de peças.

 

 

 

Estes dois tecidos são sem dúvida os meus preferidos, estou viciada em usá-los para tudo e mais alguma coisa. Já comprei mais para ficar de reserva para mais peças que queira fazer 🙂

Wishlist #32

Isto de começar uma série que ainda vai nos primeiros livros é muito mau, é que temos de esperar um ano ou mais para poder ler o livro seguinte. Acho que a partir de agora vou-me virar para séries que já saíram há algum tempo atrás, ou que já vão avançadas para poder comprar e ler os livros todos com pouco tempo de intervalo.

Nesta wishlist tenho um livro que faz parte de uma série (pois claro) e é o 3º de uma quadrilogia, o que quer dizer que comecei a ler esta série em Janeiro de 2016 e só a vou terminar em 2018 😦

Título: King’s Cage (Red Queen #3)

Autor: Victoria Aveyard

Editora: Orion

Páginas: 320

Género: Young Adult; Fantasy; Dystopia

Data de Lançamento: 9 de Fevereiro de 2017

Sinopse: In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?
Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.
As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.
When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.
