1. Bothy Tales: Footsteps in the Scottish hills by John Burns. Started in 2018. A fascinating collection of short adventures in the Scottish Hills with a few imaginative stories thrown in. For those not familiar with hiking in Scotland, a bothy is a shellter maintained by a landowner or The Mountain Bothies Association. The majority are very basic and often only have a fireplace, candles and a floor to sleep on.

3. Blood Strand by Chris Ould. Audiobook. Scandi noir set in the Faroe Islands. This is a bit of a slow burner, but I found it very enjoyable nonetheless. I though that it had a good sense of place which was aided by the excellent narration. Part 1 of a trilogy.

4. The Seagull by Ann Cleeves. Audiobook. I do like a good Vera, whether it is on TV or as a book. Another great outing for one of my favourite detectives.

5. Crimson Snow edited by Martin Edwards. A collection of short stories from the Golden Age set around Christmas time. A varied and enjoyable collection. I found the final story in the book quite moving with its portrayal of an elderly lady at home alone.

6. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. Audiobook. One of those Audible adaptations rather than a straight reading of the book. Nicely done.

7. Between the Sunset and the Sea by Simon Ingram. Audiobook. Simon Ingram goes on a journey to 16 of the UK's mountains. He takes us with him as he climbs each one and weaves into his story some of their history and cultural significance. An excellent listen.

9. The Number 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. Audiobook. I have had the paperback version of this book lying around on my bookshelves for many years and I never got around to reading it, mainly because I decided that it probably would not be for me. When the audio version came up as a special offer, I bought it but didn't listen to it. When I finally got around to listening to it I almost gave up after half an hour. I am glad that I did not however, because the book really grew on me and I now agree with all those positive reviews.

10. Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz. A murder mystery inside a story about a mysterious death. An interesting read, although I did find the solution to one of the mysteries more satisfying than the other.

11. Storm Front by Jim Butcher. Audiobook. Enjoyable. I now have a new series of books to add to the already too long list of series of books I want to read/listen to.
