Review: Murder at Queen’s Landing (Wrexford & Sloane #4) by Andrea Penrose

I absolutely fell in love with this series when I read the very first book. I can’t believe the series is only on book 4, I feel like so much has happened in these four books. It’s been quite the journey.

When I saw this one on Netgalley,  I immediately downloaded it and couldn’t wait to dive in. The book wasn’t due to come out until September and I downloaded the book in June…..needless to say I read it in June because I couldn’t wait to see what happened between Wrexford and Sloane in this book!

I read this book in only a couple of sittings and couldn’t put it down! Another winner from Penrose! Continue reading “Review: Murder at Queen’s Landing (Wrexford & Sloane #4) by Andrea Penrose”

Review: Murder on Cold Street (Lady Sherlock #5) by Sherry Thomas

This is a series that I am so glad I decided to try again. When I read the first book, I couldn’t even finish it. I struggled to get into the series and the first book. I DNF about 20% of the way through and felt incredibly sad about it because by all accounts this was a series that I should have loved.

I kept seeing the books coming out and so many people raving about them that I kept wondering if I just was missing something and maybe needed to give it another go. But I held off because it’s hard to change my mind once I hav DNF a book.

But eventually I picked up one of the third book in the series and thought it was better than I remembered and then I picked up the fourth book and was once again pleasantly surprised so when this one came up for review I decided to go for it.

Review: The Killings at Kingfisher Hill (New Hercule Poirot Mysteries #4) by Sophie Hannah

Is there really any debate about Agatha Christie being the queen of mysteries? I have only read a couple of her books and have enjoyed them very much but there is also a dated quality about them which was one of the reasons that I was excited to read this ‘New Hercule Poirot’ mystery from Sophie Hannah.

I haven’t read any of the ‘new’ Hercule Poirot mysteries before but I am familiar with his eccentric character and was really looking forward to this one.

One thing that grabbed my attention was that it had some hints of one of Christie’s classic novels, Murder on the Orient Express, so I was eager to check this one out and see a more modern take on this classic character.

If ever there was a modern queen of mystery, it would surely be Anne Perry. Not only is she a best selling novelist, she also spent time in jail for participating in a murder when she was a teenager.

So if ever there was an author versed in the telling of murder, this author right here is it. I have loved the books of her’s that I have read and while I haven’t read this series yet, I know it’s one that I am going to adore too!

I am reading this book here a little later this fall and I have already ordered the first book in this series so I can read that one too! Today I am thrilled to be bringing you guys a special feature about her upcoming installment of the Elena Standish mystery series!

Review: The Whisper Man by Alex North (Audible Edition)

My book club pick for August was The Whisper Man and I was so excited for it because I have had the book from my Book of the Month box for over a year.

I often find myself looking at it on my shelves and think, ‘this is the month I am going to read it’ and then something else catches my eye and I forget until the next time my eye wanders that way.

This month though I was determined to read it and was thrilled that my book club selected it for August! Continue reading “Review: The Whisper Man by Alex North (Audible Edition)”
