  1. As usual, these look like good books. I like the one with Jessica Fletcher. "Malpractice" is such a frightening word. Then, a Matchstick doll and chestnuts? Can't imagine what's going on there.

  2. I love the look of Last Train to London. There seem to be so many suspenseful novels right now. I like this genre. It keeps me guessing.

    Have a great week!

  3. Gravity is the Thing sounds good. I've been seeing it around lots.

    Hope you have a good week!

  4. They all look good but The First Mistake looked so good that I checked my library for it. It's on order and I'm #3.

  5. I used to LOVE watching the Murder, She Wrote TV series. I'll be interested in reading your review of the book.

    I hope you have a great week. x

  6. I’ll be interested to see what you think of Kwok’s latest.

    Have a great reading week

  7. The Last Train to London sounds really good!

  8. Happy Sunday, Harvee! I don't have any of these books, but I think you will enjoy them.

  9. Looks like a good book haul this week. I've been seeing The Last Train to London around the blogs and it looks good.
    Happy Reading!

  10. Great stack of books! I'm excited that Jean Kwok has a new book out!

  11. I'm curious about the Sylvia Lee book and I think my Mom might like the Murder She Wrote one. I know she watched every episode of that series.

  12. Great looking variety of books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  13. I'm currently reading Gravity is the Thing. Jaclyn's writing is exquisite.

  14. I remember watching Murder She Wrote as a child. It was one of my Mom's favorite shows. See what I read at Girl Who Reads
