It's Monday: Cozies and French thrillers

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? by Book Date. Visit also Mailbox Monday.
The title of this cozy, Twelve Angry Librarians, February 21, 2017, caught my eye. I can't imagine twelve angry librarians, at least not in the same space. The book is the eighth in the Cat in the Stacks series.

Dial M for Mousse (Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery #3)

Dial M for Mousse by Laura Bradford, Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery #3, January 2, 2018, from Berkley.
Baker Winnie Johnson works overtime to satisfy the emergency cravings of Silver Lake, Ohio and solves a murder mystery along the way. 






Death Below Stairs by Jennifer Ashley, January 2, 2018, Berkley Books
Victorian cook Kat Holloway takes a position in a Mayfair mansion and soon finds herself immersed in the odd household of Lord Rankin. Kat is unbothered by the family’s eccentricities as long as they stay away from her kitchen, but trouble finds its way below stairs when her young Irish assistant is murdered. 
Death Below Stairs (Kat Holloway Mysteries, #1)

Other reading last week: I finally finished a French thriller by Michel Bussi,
 N'oublier jamais, one I can recommend to those who read in French sometimes. A plot with so many twists and turns and unbelievably complex and interesting characters, not to mention the setting on the coast of Normandy, France.
N'oublier jamais

I am now reading another thriller by Bussi, Ne lache pas ma main, set in the island of Reunion, a French territory in the Indian Ocean. Its about a tourist mother who disappears from her hotel on the island, leaving behind her young daughter and husband. I am eager to see if she fled or if she was abducted. I'm sure the plot will have more twists and turns.
Ne lâche pas ma main

Happy reading week everyone!

Excellent, Beth. Two or three of the others by the author have been translated into English.

I can read some basic French but not enough to enjoy a novel - I'm so impressed you read in another language!

Harvee said...

The book makes all the difference too, if it makes you want to read it, no matter the language!

Harvee said...

I am curious about why they are all angry!

Elizabeth said...

Have a good week, Harvee Lau.

The librarians in Oakland are striking right now. So I can imagine twelve angry librarians. Nonetheless, looks like a good book and I'll be adding it to my wishlist. Come see what I'm reading.

Yes, I'm surprised that so many cozies include a cat or two!

C'est formidable que vous lisiez Bussi en V.O.! Avez-vous essayé Fred Vargas? Elle est extraordinaire !
