Episode Notes

Penny’s go-to, sleepless night, read is The Campion Series by Marjory Allingham. She loves them so much, she’ll read any of these mysteries, and there are 18 full length novels, and additional short stories! Like Campion, Penny mixes up a White Lady cocktail; Michaela’s go to middle of the night reads are the Lord Peter Wimsey novels by Dorothy L Sayer. Like the Campion series, the Wimsey novels feature an aristocratic detective and take place between the two World Wars; and when Gretchen can’t sleep she also turns to one of her favorite British authors, Rosamunde Pilcher, and discusses Pilcher’s novel Coming Home - set in that same time period!! To accompany this, Gretchen’s drinking a Ginger Buck. These books will keep you company in the dead of night. Who says insomnia has to be a bad thing?!?!? Join us!
