Traditionally Ken and I stay in on the 4th. Tahoe is a popular place to come with our crystal clear lake, abundance of beaches, and moderate temperatures, so visitors from miles around flock to our shores to enjoy all that we have to offer. Of course what that actually translates into is crowds, traffic, and long waits at our favorite restaurants, so we stay home and enjoy our own little slice of paradise away from it all.
I know a lot of you have been missing the monthly puzzles so I went ahead and posted it this week. Unlike most of the puzzles that run during a calendar month this one will begin on June 30th and conclude on July 28th. The setup may sound familiar since I've used a similar theme in the past but the names were changed as were some of the details so there will be a different answer.
Every summer I do a virtual road trip on my Kathi Daley Books Group Page. In the past we've visited all 50 states, all the US National Parks, and we even did a European tour at one point. This summer we will be visiting cozy mystery towns. See the promo in the body of this newsletter for details.
I have some summer and Fourth of July themed books on sale this week. Three of the four books on sale are Zoe's so if you don't yet have these issues now is a good time to grab them.
As always, be sure to enter to win this weeks gift card giveaway. The entry form is provided toward the bottom of the newsletter.
Remember, Rafflecopters are only live until the end of the day on Thursday. The winner is selected on Friday.
FOURTH OF JULY PARTY
Twelve friends gathered to shoot off fireworks on the 4th of July – each friend brought a different type of firework and a different food to share. One friend got food poisoning and had to leave, one friend was burned during the celebration and was rushed to the hospital, and one friend got engaged under the colorful sky.
Use the clues provided June 30, July 7th, July 14th, July 21st, and July 28th to figure out which friend got food poisoning, which was burned, and which got engaged.
Long Range Rockets
Kelly brought the potato salad while Susan brought brownies
Irene brought Bottle Rockets while Larry brought Firecrackers
Neither Eric nor Harvey got burned or engaged
Alyson brought Macaroni Salad and Ben brought Ribs

Kathi Daley Books Group Page is on a virtual road trip this summer to all the cozy mystery lands described in Kathi Daley Books 14 series. The trip will be enhanced by your participation and fueled by your imagination so please plan to join us over at Kathi Daley Books Group Page https://www.facebook.com/groups/kathidaleygrouppage
There will be 12 stops along the way. At each stop there will be gift card giveaways, free ebooks, photos and riveting discussions as our magical tour makes its way from one side of the country to the other.
The dates we will be visiting each cozy mystery town are listed below as are the book titles which will be free for the two days during our stay.
All the free books are first in series and all will be free to anyone through Amazon. You don't have to join in on the tour to take advantage of the free books. I do not control the rights to make the Tj's free so I've selected an alternate book to give away on the dates we'll be visiting Serenity.
