Sunday Salon: Mysteries and a Literary Novel

The Waters & The Wild

The Waters and the Wild by DeSales Harrison
Published April 3, 2018; Random House
Genre: literary, mystery
With lyrical prose and masterful plotting, The Waters & The Wild is a sophisticated and surprising literary mystery about passion, betrayal, and redemption. (publisher)

Murder on Union Square (Gaslight Mystery, #21)

Murder on Union Square by Victoria Thompson 
Publication: May 1, 2018; Berkley
Genre: Gaslight Mystery #21
Frank finds himself in an unusual position--the prime suspect in the latest installment of the national bestselling Gaslight Mystery series...(publisher)

The above are the two new books on my desk, and I am eager to read them! 

I  finished reading:
Sold on a Monday by Kristing McMorris; see my review.
The Lost Family by Jenna Blum
The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy
Flat Broke With Two Goats: A Memoir of Appalachia by Jennifer McGaha;
see my review on Goodreads.

Burning Ridge (Timber Creek K-9 Mystery #4)

Burning Ridge: Timber Creek K-9 Mystery #4 by Margaret Mizushima. The author's husband is a veterinarian, so this must help her write about a deputy sheriff and her police search and detect dog, Robo. A five star mystery, in my mind!

    1. The Perfect Mother was quite interesting. Murder on Union Square is one in a series that is standalone.

  9. I've read the first Gaslight book but the idea of there being 20 more is rather daunting. I also have Burning Ridge on my review stack. I've enjoyed the earlier books in the series. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
