Hi everyone, here are our suggested daily recommended titles in print or media and digital formats.
Our digital suggestion for today is the e-book:
Murder at Mullings, Florence Norris Mystery Series, Book 1 by Dorothy Cannell:
An intriguing 1930s country house murder mystery: first in the brand-new Florence Norris series
In its 300-year history, there has never once been a scandal at Mullings, ancestral home of the decent but dull Stodmarsh family. Until, that is, Edward Stodmarsh makes an ill-advised second marriage to the scheming Regina Stapleton, who insists on bringing her family’s ‘ornamental hermit’ to live on the estate. Suddenly everyone wants to visit Mullings to glimpse this mysterious figure. Strange but harmless, thinks Florence Norris, the family’s longstanding housekeeper. But events take a sinister turn with the arrival of sudden, violent death – and suddenly the hermit doesn’t seem so harmless after all.

Vegetables on Fire: 50 Vegetable-Centered Meals from the Grill by Brooke Lewy:
This is a grilling book dedicated to vegetables that eat like meat. The first of its kind, this cookbook features 60 recipes that star vegetables caramelized into succulence for satisfying, flavor-forward meals. Cauliflower “steaks,” broccoli burgers, and beets that slow-smoke like a brisket are just three of the meaty but meatless meals to base a great cookout around. More than 30 stunning images showcase the beauty and variety of these recipes, each of which includes instructions for charcoal and gas grilling as well as using a grill pan on the stovetop or under the broiler. For vegetarians, those who love to grill, and anyone looking for more creative ways to prepare vegetables, this handbook is destined to live beside the grill.
