Dead Cold Brew by Cleo Coyle, to be released January 10, 2017, Berkley.
Very enjoyable and complex plot, intriguing characters. Love the NYC setting of the coffee shop mystery series. 

I finished this book while I was recovering from surgery. It was a great comfort during that trying time!

I am reading a galley of When All the Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz, November 29, 2016, Berkley 

A fairly suspenseful story of a woman trying to find her stepsister and solve the murder of her sister's best friend. 
Metaphors Be With You: An Z to Z dictionary of history's greatest metaphorical quotations by Dr. Mardy Grothe,  December 6, 2016, Harper

A book to open at random and savor a few pages at a time.

Here's a quote from the section on Poets:
To be a poet is a condition rather than a profession. - Robert Graves
And on Writing:
Writing is seduction. - Stephen King
On Committees:
A camel is a horse designed by a committee. - Author Unknown

Add a cozy to my reading list:
Pop Goes the Murder: A Popcorn Shop Mystery by Kristi Abbott, January 3, 2017; Berkley

First paragraph:
I knocked on the hotel room door. No  one answered. I glanced at my watch. Seven forty-five in the morning. I was right on time....

Building suspense from the start, this cozy mystery is next on my reading list.

How about your reading?

  11. The right book can be just what you need when you're recovering - my mum's neighbor introduced her to Harry Potter when she was recovering from an operation, and it was exactly what she needed to get her through it. Books can be just what the doctor ordered!

  12. I love the quote about being a poet. LOL I hope the operation went well and that you're recovering smoothly.

  13. Krentz is always popular at my library. Thanks for sharing! :)


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
