Oh, the books that have been coming into my house lately!
I had cozy fever, and picked up:
Murder is Binding by Lorna Barrett - first in a series set in a fictional New Hampshire town of bookstores; picked up right after reading Kay's review.
The Stabbing in the Stables by Simon Brett - I can't seem to resist Jude and Carole. I've read the previous ones, and wanted to catch up.
Death of a Gentle Lady by M.C. Beaton - the next one after Death of a Maid which I recently wrote about.
And a police procedural (I think that's the right classification) - Orchestrated Death by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles, first in the Inspector Bill Slider series. I read this years and years ago, and have meant to carry on with the series. It has been so long now that I wanted to read this first one again before continuing.
The Tales of Maudie Tipstaff by Margaret Forster. I read this ages ago, and remember liking it. A woman goes off to visit her adult children. Doesn't she have a great name?! addendum: not a cozy mystery, but fiction.
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson- irresistible after reading raidergirl's review .
Queen of the Road by Doreen Orion - have been thinking about since Heather's review.
The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett - I've read many, many great reviews of this.
Counter Culture: The American Coffee Shop Waitress by Candacy A. Taylor - sounded wonderful after hearing about on National Public Radio.
The Provincial Lady in America by E.M. Delafield - one I haven't read about one of my favorite fictional characters.
Dog On It by Spencer Quinn - a mystery narrated by a dog. Sounds like great fun.
Frangipani by Célestine Vaite - I was captivated by the cover and description as I wandered my local bookstore.
All these books plus the Inter Library Loan biography on the sidebar, and the one I had to put aside to read it. Will I read them all? I hope so, but I'm not a fast reader, and spring is coming, and I am on the six-movies-out-at-a-time plan at Netflix, and I have several other books on order from the library, and on and on. But they are so very appealing. Now I must shut off my computer and head to a reading chair.
