Sunday Salon: Mystery and Romance

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week. Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer. Also visit Mailbox Monday and A Daily Rhythm for Blue Mondays Musings.

I'm reading and enjoying the first in a new mystery series:
Fillet of Murder: A Deep Fried Mystery by Linda Reilly, to be released May 5, 2015; Berkley
After leaving a miserable job and an even worse boyfriend, Talia Marby returned to her hometown in the Berkshires and is happy to help her dear friend Bea Lambert by working at Lambert’s Fish & Chips, a cornerstone of a charming shopping plaza designed to resemble an old English village.

When Talia and Bea stumble upon a murder, the police suspect Bea. Talia fishes around for clues to hook the real killer before her friend has to trade serving food for serving time…(publisher)

I am also reading 

Girl in the Moonlight by Charles Dubow, a contemporary novel about a young man and his obsession over time with a tantalizing girl who refuses to commit to a relationship with any of her lovers. I am in the middle of it and can't wait to see how it ends.

Got a new book in the mail by Janet Evanovich:
The Sweet Spot by Janet Evanovich, paperback edition to be released April 26, 2015 by Avon Books. When pro baseball player Chase Walker first meets Amanda at her restaurant, it's love at first sight. While Amanda can't help noticing the superstar with the Greek-god-build, he doesn't have a chance of getting to first--or any other--base with her. A successful entrepreneur who's built her business from scratch, Amanda doesn't need a Prince Charming to sweep her off her feet. And a curvy girl who likes to cook and eat isn't interested in being around the catty, stick-thin herd of females chasing Chase and his teammates. (publisher)

I enjoyed Big Girl Panties by Stephane Evanovich. I hope you enjoy The Sweet Spot. I'll watch for your review.

I read Big Girl Panties, too, so I am curious about this new one. Enjoy your books!

Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

Harvee said...

Haven't read big girl panties as yet. Maybe I should read it first!

Harvee said...

Big Girl Panties is on my TBR shelf. I have to read these one after the other.

What a pretty calico on the cover!

Harvee said...

I agree, nice colors.

Martha Eskuchen said...

I like the cozy mystery cover too. I have a set of older titles (not the Plum series) from Evanovich still to read. I haven't picked up any new ones.
Happy Reading!

Filet of Murder is a great title! And the cover art is great!

Debbish said...

I didn't remember reading The Sweet Spot until you described it... I think it was quite fun so keen to hear what you think.

Vicki said...

Fillet of Murder has a great cover! Enjoy your books!

The Literary Lioness said...

Hmmm. Any book cover with a cat on it interests me :)

Harvee said...

I enjoyed her earlier ones and am about to read this one too.

Harvee said...

Got my eye, for sure.

Harvee said...

Eager to read it now, Deborah!

Harvee said...

Really unusual to have a cozy set in a fish shop!

Harvee said...

Thanks, Vicki. I love all those clever cozy titles and colorful covers!

Harvee said...

Lots of cat lovers who are cozy readers out there!

Bellezza said...

I loved Charles Dubow's first book, Indiscretion, and I have been keeping my eye out for thoughts on his latest. Lucky you for receiving it! xo

Harvee said...

Bellezza, I am now eager to find and read Indiscretion.I think he is better though developing his male characters than his female, from the book I just read. If you click on the title of the book, it will take you to the few comments I made on goodreads.

I read Big Girl Panties but wasn't too excited about it. Too much romance for me. :) You can check out my review if you like.

ENJOY your new books and your reading week.

The first one, the "cat cozy", seems like fun. Enjoy your reading this week, Harvee! :)

I like the sound of Girl in the Moonlight. The Sweet Spot was a fun book. Have a great week.

Harvee said...

I'm not a cat fan, Suko, but I like reading about them.

Harvee said...

Now I do have to read The Sweet Spot!
