Sunday Salon: Midsummer Reading

A mystery novel set in Arapaho land features a local attorney and a priest who are the major investigators of a crime. I have started this one and find the characters interesting and the plot unusual.
Winter's Child (Wind River Reservation #20 by Margaret Coel, to be released September 6, 2016, Berkley
Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O’Malley discover that a centuries-old mystery is tied to a modern-day crime on the Wind River Reservation…

Next on my list to read....

Letters from Paris by Juliet Blackwell, to be released September 6, 2016 by Berkley.
The bestselling author of The Paris Key writes a story of a mysterious work of art and the woman inspired to uncover its history in the City of Light.
Whispers Beyond the Veil by Jessica Estevao, to be released September 6, 2016 by Berkley. First in a new historical mystery series featuring Ruby Proulx, a psychic who reads tarot cards who suddenly finds her future most uncertain.. Canada, 1898.


I have just finished reading Commonwealth: A Novel by Ann Patchett, published 2016. Here is my goodreads review: 
Heart breaking in so many parts - the effects on children and marriage partners of infidelity, broken marriages, divorce, blended families, especially when there are lots of children involved plus neglectful, self-absorbed parents. Quite a strong statement. But the novel is even more than that- several of the members go on to help other members of the commonwealth or extended family in later years, those not related to them biologically. Another strong statement.

  3. All of these books sound great! Particulary Letrters from Paris! Although, Winter's Child gives me the chills and makes me think I should be thankful for the hot weather here because winter is not that far off!
