BW43: Sunday's Book Babble - A Well Read Woman is a Dangerous Creature
It's week 43 in our 52 Books quest and doing the happy dance as we're having lots of rain which should put out all our fires and snow in the mountains.
Enjoyed Reread of Chesapeake Bay series by Nora Roberts and moved on to Carnal Innocence which is a murder mystery thriller based in a small town and a serial killer is at large. Scary enough for Halloween.
“Burned out and still reeling from a love affair gone bad, world-class violinist Caroline Waverly goes to her grandparents’ home in Innocence, Mississippi, for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Instead she finds herself overwhelmed all over again—first by Tucker Longstreet, a charming local with a sideline in no-strings-attached relationships, and then by a deadlier, more disturbing development.
For Innocence is being stalked by its very own serial killer, whose brutal knife blows have pierced the veil of tranquility in this sleepy Southern town and left a trail of mutilated female corpses in their wake. When a federal agent arrives to investigate, the town’s deepest secrets bubble to the surface and suspicion turns on Tucker as the most likely suspect. After Caroline finds the latest murder victim floating in the murky waters behind her house, she too is inexorably drawn into the path of a crazed killer who may be closer than she could have ever imagined.”
Looking forward to Nalini Singh’s Archangel’s Light #14 in her Guild Hunter series which is coming out in a couple days.
Speaking of Nalini Singh, I was at the grocery store Saturday and happened to be wearing my A Well Read Woman is a Dangerous Creature shirt. The Gal bagging my groceries who I bonded with in previous visit over the netflix movie Enola Holmes, asked me what were my favorite genres and favorite authors and I clutched. Couldn't think of anything, then almost said all of them, but finally went with Urban Fantasies. Couldn’t remember any names for a moment before Nalini and Faith Hunter came to mind. Happily she was into urban Fantasies as well so we had a lovely conversation about books. 😀
Ready Player Two still waiting in the wings.
Thanks to a friend tell me about about the kindle credit last week, added three books to my kindle stacks: Summer at the Garden Cafe: A Novel (Finfarran Peninsula Book 2) by Felicity Hayes-McCoy, A Good Day for Chardonnay: A Novel (Sunshine Vicram Book 2) by Darynda Jones; and When Sorrows Come: An October Daye Novel by Seanan McGuire. Yep, all series books.
