In fifth grade, I was voted "most forgetful." Why my teacher, Mrs. Prout, thought it would be a good idea to label children, I have no idea. I shouldn't complain—my friend Kathy was voted "most stuck-up." As an adult I learned my forgetfulness is due to a mild case of ADD. It's not that I actually forget stuff; I just don't remember at the appropriate time. Over the years, I've developed coping mechanisms that work for me (usually). Now, with virtually no commitments, my natural tendencies toward forgetfulness, procrastination, and unreliability are returning. Good grief.
3. My husband and I are discovering some wonderful new TV shows.

Maggie Toussaint has done it again—created a new series— Seafood Caper mysteries, which are guaranteed to immerse readers head-to-toe. The first book, Seas the Day, was released yesterday by Henery Press. This is Maggie’s sixth series. I very much like main character, River Holloway, and yet, I don’t understand her.
Set on a Georgia barrier island, seafood is only one specialty of caterer River Holloway. Finding things and solving mysteries is another. When she’s asked to find a missing person, she gets more help than she’d like from Deputy Hamlyn. She gets more worries than she’d like from her boyfriend—who escapes L.A. for bluer pastures to help River solve the case. I think she could have solved the case by herself without their “help.” But would she really give up her business to be with her boyfriend? We’ll have to read the next book to find out. Maggie’s given us homework again.
Please welcome Maggie Toussaint back to WWK! E. B. Davis
