Sunday Salon: Mystery, History, Travel

I promised myself not to buy any more books, but this one was not available on NetGalley or at the library, so I bought the ebook!
The Girl from Oto (The Miramonde Series Book 1)
The Girl from Oto
I was interested in The Girl from Oto by Amy Maroney, not only because it's an art history mystery, but because it also takes place on the Camino de Compostela in Spain, a new interest of mine, and a place on my bucket visit to visit and do.

New paper books on my shelf include:
Don't Eat Me (Dr. Siri Paiboun #13)
Don't Eat Me 
Don't Eat Me by Colin Cotterill is the most unusual mystery series set in Laos and featuring the fictional Dr. Siri Paiboon, former national coroner of Laos, The books reflect the country's people, their beliefs, superstitions, and interesting cultural slants and is written tongue in cheek, with a great deal of irony and humor.
Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding (Her Royal Spyness Mystery, # 12)
Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding
Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding  by Rhys Bowen is the 12th in the Royal Spyness Mystery series, Georgie, who is the queen's personal spy, is planning her own wedding but a murder intervenes to take time away from her planning.

I am almost finished reading a memoir, To Siri With Love: A Mother, Her Autistic Son, and the Kindness of a Machine by Judith Newman, August 24, 2017, and am learning a lot about autism, how it manifests and how parents can cope. In this case, the boy Gus finds a "friend" in Apple's Siri, as she gives him all the information he asks for and responds to him in a somewhat personal way, as personal as as the AI can get.
