Thanksgiving Trivia hosted by Linda Reilly

It is almost Thanksgiving here in the US. Today's lovely host is Linda Reilly. I am so excited to have her visiting today. So grab your fall favorite drink and lets play.









Hello, I’m Linda Reilly, author of the Deep Fried cozy mystery series from Berkley Prime Crime. I’d like to give a huge thank you to the wonderful Shelley Giusti for inviting me to be a guest host today!

It’s that time of year again, so let’s have some fun with Thanksgiving trivia. I’m going to pose four multiple choice questions about Thanksgiving.
