Last September Sisters in Crime put out a call to bloggers to participate in a September Sinc-Up. My favorite of the seven questions they suggested is “What books are on your nightstand right now?” and I lost no time in posting my TBR list here.
As you might guess I’ve added new books to the nightstand stack and haven’t yet started some of the ones I listed in September. Things are fast spiraling out of control and I may have to spring for a bigger nightstand.
Here are the new ones, alphabetized by author:
Widow’s Cruise, Nicholas Blake. I saw a character reading this on a Midsomer Murder episode (Season 3, Episode 2, “Blue Herrings”). Widow’s Cruise is set on a voyage through the Greek Islands and some say it’s reminiscent of Agatha Christie.
Night Night, Sleep Tight, Hallie Ephron. I learned about NNST, which releases today, on the Jungle Red Writers blog. ”Old Hollywood glamour, scandals, and lies infuse this captivating thriller set in 1985.” I love Hollywood stories and I loved the eighties. Sounds like a win-win to me!
Snitch in Time, Sunny Frazier. The long-awaited book 3 of the Christy Bristol Astrology Mysteries from my cyber friend / guru.
White Bird in a Blizzard, Laura Kasischke. I recently saw the movie and found it fascinating.
Death at the Chateau Bremont, M.L. Longworth. My sister recommended this, further proof that word of mouth rules!
Drowning Pool, Ross Macdonald. I love how he weaves complex family relationships through his plots.
Silent Murders, Mary Miley. I enjoyed The Impersonator, the first in her roaring twenties series.
If It Bleeds, Linda L. Richards. Her Madeline Carter series is quite good but, alas, Ms. Richard ended it too soon. But her latest sounds intriguing.
Paying Guests, Sarah Waters. I read about Paying Guests on Booksie’s Blog. Read the post here.
Ashes to Water, Irene Ziegler. This mystery is set in Deland, Florida, my friend Caroline’s hometown. I’ve heard many a story about Deland and want to compare notes!
