This post lists new books and links up to It's Monday; What Are You Reading? at Book Journey; to Mailbox Monday hosted by Book Obsessed; and to Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Reviews.

I won this mystery novel which has the most colorful cover I've seen in a while - A Tine to Live, A Tine to Die, won from Escape With Dollycas. Thanks, Dollycas, and the author Edith Maxwell!
Book description: "It’s harvest time in Westbury, Massachusetts, and novice farmer Cameron Flaherty hopes to make a killing selling organic produce. But when a killer strikes on her property, her first foray into the world of organic farming yields a bumper crop of locally sourced murder…"

Also arrived, for review:
Carniepunk by Rachel Caine and others (Gallery Books galley)
Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain (St. Martin's Press galley)
Seed No Evil: A Flower Shop Mystery by Kate Collins (Signet paperback)
A Brew to a Kill: A Coffeehouse Mystery by Cleo Coyle (Berkley paperback)

These books I borrowed from the library though I wish they had arrived in the mailbox!
Enigma of China: An Inspector Chen Novel by Qiu Xiaolong (can't pass up an international mystery)
Bend, Not Break: A Life in Two Worlds by Ping Fu (a memoir of emigration and immigration)


  1. Congratulations on your win! I hope you enjoy the Diane Chamberlain, I enjoy her writing.

  3. Oooh, Necessary Lies sounds terrific! Enjoy your new books!

  4. I used to start too many reading projects with library books and their borrow times ticking away..
