Monday Musings: Fun Mystery Novels

It's time for Monday Musings again!

1. Tomorrow is the release of a new book by one of my favorite authors, Donna Andrews. She writes an amateur sleuth series with a lovable, kooky cast of characters that takes place in rural Virgina, and these chuckle-inducing books always involve birds in some way, small or large. I love the anticipation of diving into the next book in a beloved series!

 2. I'm also looking forward to the release of the next novel in another of my favorite series, Tasha Alexander's Lady Emily historical mysteries. This time the mystery, due out October 16, takes Lady Emily and her husband to Venice.

3. I've been looking for another good period mystery series to delve into, and a patron at the library where I work recommended Laurie King's Mary Russell series, in which the protagonist meets Sherlock Holmes in 1915 and becomes his apprentice. (Speaking of Sherlock Holmes, I'm intrigued by the previews for the fall CBS show "Elementary, which will chronicle the detecting activities of a modern-day Sherlock and a female Watson.)

The Jane Austen mystery series by Stephanie Barron also caught my eye. In these books, Jane herself is the amateur sleuth and the mysteries include actual events in the real Jane's life. Sounds like my cup of tea!

  1. The cover for "Some like it Hawk", is interesting. These sound like some great mysteries.


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
