Excerpt from Betrayed

Excerpt from Betrayed

I am currently reading a Lisa Scottoline novel, Betrayed. It is part of the Rosato & DiNunzio series. I'm a sucker for murder mysteries and legal thrillers, and Lisa Scottoline almost always hits it out of the park for me. Betrayed does not disappoint. Scottoline's characters are well-developed and I am eager to find out what sort of scheme it was that the victim was involved in. Hopefully, Judy Carrier will find out that her Aunt Barb's trust was not misplaced ...
Excerpt from The Weekenders

Excerpt from The Weekenders

This week I am reading on of Mary Kay Andrews' books, The Weekenders. I am just getting into it, but enjoying the characters and the beautiful island setting. The protagonist was, unfortunately, just about to divorce her husband, who she didn't know had been both cheating on her and hiding their dire financial situation, when he is murdered. This puts her in a somewhat awkward decision when the police start looking for suspects! ...

There are currently six books out in the Auntie Clem's Bakery series. Many of you have enjoyed the exploits of Erin and her friends and adversaries in Bald Eagle Falls. Book 7 has been drafted and the first draft of book 8 will be done in a few days. As I consider the next in the series, I'm wondering what my readers would like to see in the future ...
Excerpt from Criminal

Excerpt from Criminal

I am currently reading Karin Slaughter's Criminal, book 6 in the Will Trent series. I have not read any of the other books in the series, but haven't had any problems with jumping in mid-series. While the series is named after Will Trent, the story has been more about his boss Amanda than about Will. I do want to hear more about Will and might have to check out some of the other books ...

Excerpt from The Life We Bury

Excerpt from The Life We Bury

I mentioned The Life We Bury in my last post, and I had to bring it up again to give you a teaser. I really enjoyed this one. Faintly reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird, this well-woven mystery is a pleasure to read. The writer/sleuth has a complex background and a younger brother with autism. The brother is treated as a real person and not just a foil or token diverse character.  ...
Excerpt from The Yard

Excerpt from The Yard

I just finished The Yard by Alex Grecian an hour ago. I don't think I've read anything else by this author. It was an enjoyable police procedural with lots of good historical details about Victorian England. There are several intersecting plots and the identity of the killer is revealed fairly early. The character development is good and I would definitely read others in the series.  ...
Excerpt from A Banquet of Consequences

Excerpt from A Banquet of Consequences

A Banquet of Consequences is not the first Elizabeth George mystery I have read this year. It is part of the Inspector Lynley series, though I haven't heard much from Lynley yet! I am not too far into the book yet, and am interested in seeing how the suicide and the investigation end up being connected. Elizabeth George builds unique, well-rounded characters.  ...
Excerpt from All the Missing Girls

Excerpt from All the Missing Girls

I just started this mystery/suspense today, and it's kept my attention so far! All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda starts at the end and works its way back to the disappearance/murder of Annaleise, the second girl to go missing from amongst a group of friends, the first of whom disappeared a decade before. It is clear from the beginning that everyone knows more than they have revealed, but they're not giving up their secrets easily ...
Coup de Glace

Coup de Glace

But Bella really needs her; how could an old woman just have gone missing without anyone following up on it? ...

Excerpt from This Body of Death

Excerpt from This Body of Death

This is the second week in a row that I'm not using the Amazon synopsis for my spotlight. The Amazon sales copy was pitiful, so I have quoted from Bookbrowse. My teaser this week is from This Body of Death, An Inspector Lynley Novel, by Elizabeth George. It is a police procedural with lots of twists and turns, and I am still trying to figure out how the two disparate timelines are going to connect up.  ...

Excerpt from Racing the Devil

Excerpt from Racing the Devil

I've read a few of Charles Todd's Ian Rutledge mysteries in the last year, and quite enjoy this Scotland Yard Inspector's adventures, including the ever-present second voice in his head, a remnant of the shell-shock he suffered from his service during WWI. Racing the Devil is no exception, and I am interested in seeing how this one turns out! ...
