Cormoran Strikes Back in The Silkworm

Cormoran Strikes Back in The Silkworm

This week I am into Robert Galbraith's The Silkworm, second book in the Cormoran Strike series. (Yes, that Robert Galbraith, one of the pen names of J.K. Rowling.) Private Investigator Cormoran Strike is looking for a missing writer, who was trying to get his tell-all book published. Lots of people are not happy to be included in the book, so you can bet there will be a lot of suspects in his disappearance and (spoiler) death. Sorry, I haven't gotten to that part yet, the Amazon blurb gives it away. ...

Thanks for Books and Readers

Thanks for Books and Readers

I probably don't have to tell you it's American Thanksgiving! There have been lots of #givethanks posts on my Facebook timeline this week, and I have been buoyed up by everyone's words of thanks. During challenging times, it is easy to get swamped by negative feelings and influences, and counting your blessings can provide a much-needed boost. Even hearing about others' blessings seems to be helping me ...

Stay up tonight and read The Late Show

Stay up tonight and read The Late Show

I am reading The Late Show by Michael Connelly, the second book in the Renée Ballard and Harry Bosch series. I have actually read book number two, Dark Sacred Night before this. It is a good series. I think that the main character, Renée Ballard is a little more non-conforming in this book than she is in book 2. She breaks quite a few police procedure rules, in fact. If that's the kind of thing that drives you crazy as a reader, you might want to give this one a pass! ...

Humour in a police procedural? Read A Bad Day for Sunshine

Humour in a police procedural? Read A Bad Day for Sunshine

It isn't often that you come across a police procedural infused with humour. Not just occasional, subtle humour, but full of laugh-out-loud tongue in cheek humour. I have really been enjoying Darynda Jone's A Bad Day for Sunshine. Sunshine is the name of the police chief in this small town police procedural featuring the kidnapping of a teenager who is friends with her own daughter. ...

Reading List: Books with Racially Diverse Main Characters

Reading List: Books with Racially Diverse Main Characters

There are an increasing number of books out there featuring BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Colour) main characters. The "default" is still white main characters, but the call for more diverse characters is louder and more insistent, and authors are stepping up to fill the gap. BIPOC authors writing characters from their own cultures (#ownvoices) are particularly sought after. ...

Real-life intrigue in Ronan Farrow's Catch and Kill

Real-life intrigue in Ronan Farrow’s Catch and Kill

I recently read Ronan Farrow's Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators, an account of his investigation into and exposure of Harvey Weinstein's long history of sexual abuse in Hollywood, of the cover-ups that took place over decades by not only Hollywood, but by police departments, prosecutors, and the media. ...

The Searcher: Tana French is Master of the Slow Burn

The Searcher: Tana French is Master of the Slow Burn

The Searcher is slow burn suspense. If you are looking for a high-octane thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end, this is not the book for you. Instead, it is a walk out on the Irish heath on a sunny day, watching the sheep graze, as the clouds gradually roll in, getting darker and darker, with the forest closing in around you. ...

My 2020 Bookiversary

My 2020 Bookiversary

October is the anniversary of publishing my first book. (The first book I published, not the first book I wrote—that was not fit for publication.) Believe it or not, that was back in 2013. I was dipping my toes into the publishing world to see whether it would be possible for me to write full time as my office job wound down in on a predicted five-year timeline. ...
