And I listened to the audiobook of Rex Stout's Homocide Trinity in my continuing quest to read all the Nero Wolfe books in order. Stout really shines in the novella format (about every 3rd book in the series is a collection of 3 novellas or long short stories).
Song of the Lion by Anne Hillerman
(a Navajo nation series/present-day bombing mystery)
In audiobook, I started a ROOT called Merry, Merry Ghost by Carolyn Hart - I'm not sure that it is a mystery now that I have started it. I just assumed that it was because I had read a bunch of Hart's Death on Demand series.
Holly Blues (a China Bayles Mystery) by Susan Wittig Albert
Ali Cross by James Patterson (4 stars)
(son of Alex Cross/YA mystery/missing friend)
Well 120 pages in and getting no traction among the too-many characters, I' ve put it for return to library and stared on Roberta Wohlstetter's Pearl Harbor: Warning and Decision, even though it, too, has myriad characters and, additionally, I know how this story ends.
Murphy's Law (Molly Murphy Mysteries, book 1) by Rhys Bowen
(around 1900, NYC/Irish immigrant/woman detective)
few years ago. I recently decided it was time to dive into the series.
I’m reading The Suspect by Fiona Barton. Not bad, but I don’t like her chapter system.
>33 mvo62: Home Sweet Homicide is great, isn't it? I'm glad to see it is coming back into popularity...
I have been reading the Rhys Bowen 'Royal Spyness' series - Royal Flush, Royal Blood, Naughty in Nice and most recently, The Twelve Clues of Christmas. The holiday one is actually the best mystery of those named but these books are mostly fun because of the 1930s setting and the personal life of the main character, Lady Georgiana Rannoch, the King's cousin.
I'm about 100 pages in, and my edition is about 500 pages total, so I have a couple of days' worth of reading.
>33 mvo62: >35 leslie.98: I really enjoyed Home Sweet Homicide! Very glad that American Mystery Classics reprinted it. So much fun.
Lady Osbaldestone And The Missing Christmas Carols (Lady Osbaldestone's Christmas Chronicles, book 2) by Stephanie Laurens
(1800's/village in England/historical fiction)
May the worst thing that happens in the new year be the best thing that happened in the old.
Happy New Year !!
