Sunday Salon: August Reads

Marigolds for Malice (Enchanted Garden Mystery, #3)

I am the cozy queen this week. Here are two more new cozy mysteries to whet my reading appetite!

Marigolds for Malice by Bailey Catttrell, August 28, 2018, Berkley
Elliana Allbright is happy running her perfume shop, Scents & Nonsense, in Poppyville, California. And she's even happier when she can use her inherited abilities to infuse her perfumes with an extra special something that eases woes or solves problems for her customers. But she'll need those abilities and more when murder comes to town. (publisher)


Hitting the Books (Library Lover's Mystery, #9)



Hitting the Books by Jenn McKinlay, September 11, 2018, Berkley. A hit and run, borrowed books, attempted murder are all mixed together in this Library Lover's Mystery.  

I finished The Life Lucy Knew by Karma Brown, and am now interested in reading her other romances/contemporary fiction. 

Currently reading from the library:

Less

Less by Andrew Sean Greer is about a middle-aged, minor novelist whose lover has decided to marry someone else. How he copes by running away from the problems and the people and traveling the world. 

You Were Always Mine

You Were Always Mine by Nicole Baart is a thriller, about a husband's mysterious death and the wife's attempts to cope with the loss and raising her two children alone, one adopted.

I’m curious about Less because it won the Pulitzer. I’m not sure if I want to read it, though. I hope you like it!

Jenn McKinlay's cozies always look good to me. And You Were Always Mine looks like a promsing thriller!

Terra said...

That first cover is so pretty it could be framed and hung on a wall; that looks like a corgi on it.

I'm always glad to come back to your blog. Marigolds for Malice is the one I pick to like the most. I love perfume. I do need to find a really, really nice soft scent. I like marigolds too. I didn't have the chance to container grow any this year.

Harvee said...

Tea, I don't use perfume much, but like Happy by Clinique, as I'm allergic to stronger scents.

Harvee said...

It's quite suspenseful so far!

Harvee said...

Lovely summer colors.

The Marigolds for Malice cover is awesome. :)

I've heard lots about Less, and I'm tempted to read it. I eagerly await your thoughts.

Those cozies covers are so cute, enjoy. I'm re-reading Stephen King this week. Have a nice week!

Harvee said...

Love it too!

Harvee said...

Enjoy. I cannot see myself reading King even once!

Harvee said...

I'm enjoying it so far, Deb Nance. Just started but eager to see where the main character, a middle aged gay man, will go from here after losing a young lover and being on his own.

These all look sooo good! The cover on Marigolds for Malice makes me want to grab it now! I am overdue for some cozies.

Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

Harvee said...

Reading one ebook and a paper book at the same time, but I'm enjoying both!

Martha Eskuchen said...

I love the bright colors of the cozy covers. Glad you are enjoying your reading. Have a good week.

Harvee said...

Cozy covers and titles are always delightful!

JoAnn said...

Will keep an eye out for your final thoughts on Less... I've been thinking about reading it.

Harvee said...

Slow going cause I'm so busy, but will post something on the book when I've finished, for sure.

Cozies are always good escapes. I hope you love both of them.

I enjoy it when I get a chance to fit in a cozy mystery or two. I hope you like these. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Elizabeth said...

LOVE the cover on MARIGOLDS FOR MALICE.

ENJOY your books and your week.

Cute covers help too.

Cozies are also for cold winter days.

Harvee said...

The colors and presentation are amaazing!
