Vintage Scattergories

This is my third year at Bev’s Vintage’s Mystery Challenge. 🙂 VMC turns ten in 2021 and Bev’s gone back to the early days and revived her Vintage Scattergories theme. You can read more on this at Bev’s website.

I love me a good vintage mystery. This year, I have planned to read a variety of authors; move a little out of my comfort zone and try authors new to me.
