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!

I love stories with K-9 dogs in them. I've never heard of this series before but I will definitely be adding it to my list.

Happy Sunday, Harvee! I am most interested in The Waters and the Wild, The Lost Family, and the Goat book, right now. I hope you've had a relaxing weekend so far.

Literary mysteries is a new genre for me. Sounds good too.

The Waters & the Wild sounds good and I love the cover.

Looks like you got some great mysteries. I like the look of The Waters and the Wild. Enjoy your new books!

Lori's Reading Corner said...

Enjoy your new books! I loved Murder on Union Square. One of my favorite cozy series.

Harvee said...

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

Harvee said...

K-9 dogs are also interesting to me in mystery books!

Harvee said...

These are all interesting books, Suko.

Harvee said...

Good writing plus a mystery, a winning combination!

Harvee said...

Intriguing, yes!

Harvee said...

Thanks, Laura.

Glad you enjoy that series. I have a couple to catch up on.

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!

Murder on Union Square looks really good.

I agree that Murder on Union Square looks good but I think I'll see if I can start at the beginning of the series. Come see what I'm reading.

Burning Ridge looks very good. I will have to check out the first book in the series.

Elizabeth said...

We both received THE WATERS & THE WILD.

LOVE the cover. The writing is beautiful too.

MURDER ON UNION SQUARE is catching my eye too.

ENJOY, and have a good week.
