Colonel Mustard did what to Miss Scarlett? Shocking! Share all the details here!
Just finished The Strange Death of Fiona Griffiths (another very good one in this series).
The Dry : Aaron Falk's back in his old town, rural Australia in the middle of a drought, for the funeral of his best friend's family. Was it murder suicide or something else? I'm gripped by this: all sorts of secrets in a small place...
>3 jnwelch: That's my favorite of the series so far, Joe, after the first one!
>5 Storeetllr: What a great character Fiona is, Mary. I already got the next one, although it'll be a little while before I get to it.
I now remember why I stopped reading the Martha Grimes mysteries. Just too much information, that isn't needed. So onto another mystery.
>7 jnwelch: I love the series, Joe! The only time I've ever pre-ordered a book was the last Fiona Griffiths mystery, The Dead House! Can't wait till the next comes out.
(Haha, the first Touchstone title that comes up for "The Dead House" is Game of Thrones. You suppose that's because so many of the characters get slaughtered in Martin's books?)
Currently listening to the latest Flavia de Luce mystery, Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd. So far, it's really good and more enjoyable than the last one.
>3 jnwelch: Joe, I had not heard of that series. On to my wishlist, it goes!
>9 Storeetllr: Mary, the Flavia de Luce series is a favorite of mine, but I have to say I didn't enjoy Thrice the Brindled Cat Hath Mew'd as much as some of the others in the series, although perhaps more than the last one. After the last book and then the ending of this one, I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out where Alan Bradley is taking the series.
I'm currently reading Garden of Lamentations by Deborah Crombie which was just released. It was supposed to have come out last summer but was delayed. So far I'm enjoying it. I also just finished In Farleigh Field by Rhys Bowen which is a stand alone work, although the way the ending was written, I could see it being turned into a series. I thought it was very well written.
