Guns of one description or another figure on a number of covers in Stephen Leather‘s Spider Shepherd Series. Don‘t let the covers put you off, this series is little know but I love them! #Revolver #Movember

Cinfhen Covers are a little off putting/ not gonna lie 😱 2w
Andrew65 @Cinfhen Yes I don‘t think he helps himself with the covers. 2w

EadieB I own these 3 books by him:
Spider Shepherd
1. Hard Landing (2004)
2. Soft Target (2005)
3. Cold Kill (2006)
2w
Andrew65 @EadieB I‘m sure you‘ll really enjoy them. Biggest issue is the lack of chapters! 2w
EadieB @Andrew65 I need chapters. They are good places to take a break if you need to. 2w
Andrew65 @EadieB Me too! 2w

#NOvember
With a background in art restoration & consulting & also being the daughter of an infamous art forger, Alix London knows a #Masterpiece when she sees it. I‘ve only read the first two books in this mystery series so far. The first book is set in the Santa Fe art scene with the emphasis on Georgia O'Keeffe's work & a newly discovered painting that Alix is hired to authenticate.🎨📚

Andrew65 Yet another series I am not aware of. 2w
TrishB @Cinfhen @Andrew65 don‘t know these either! 2w

Crazeedi @Cinfhen @Andrew65 @TrishB I've never heard of this one either, but it looks intriguing! 2w
Crazeedi @DebinHawaii thanks for post! 2w
EadieB @Cinfhen I have not heard of this series but both Aaron and Charlotte do write separately and I do own some of their other novels: 2w
gradcat @Cinfhen I think these sound really good! Thank for the tip! ( @EadieB ... you know all the books, I now firmly believe that you are a walking card catalogue, am I right? @Crazeedi @Andrew65 ? 😂🤣😂 2w
EadieB @gradcat I have this app I used when I bought all my books. You can scan the book and then it keeps a record and you can select the author and see what books you own written by that author. It also helped in the fact that I never bought the same book twice. That‘s how I know which books I own. I check out The Book Crawler app and I can easily look them up without having to check my shelves. 2w
gradcat @EadieB Oooh, that sounds perfect!! Thanks for telling me about it. I‘ve never heard of it before. By the way, are you a night owl, maybe? 2w
EadieB @gradcat I went to bed at 7:30 as I did 2 days of babysitting and was exhausted but after 4 or 5 hours of sleep I‘m wide awake. I‘m going back to bed as I‘ll never last the whole day if I don‘t. (edited) 2w
gradcat @EadieB You sound just like me. Sleep well, my friend! 🛌 2w
DebinHawaii @Crazeedi You are welcome! 😉 2w
Crazeedi @EadieB what app do you use? 2w
EadieB @Crazeedi It's called Book Crawler. I use it on my iphone. (edited) 2w
Crazeedi @EadieB thanks I'm going to check it out for sure!! 2w

John Milton is a great character who rather in Jack Reacher style wanders the planet rescuing people, even though those who he used to work for are searching the planet to kill him, they don‘t like his resignation from their employ! Not that well known a series but I really enjoying reading them, and now 15 in the series. #RescueMe #MOvember

Cinfhen #SeriesSquadAlert but I think I‘ve tagged you all before about this author @TrishB @EadieB @gradcat 1mo
Andrew65 @Cinfhen Quite Possibly because I have pushed him before. 1mo
TrishB @Cinfhen @Andrew65 I‘ve got the first three on my kindle! I‘m trying to get up to date in current series before starting new ones! But I‘m ready with these 😁 1mo

gradcat @Cinfhen @Andrew65 @TrishB Sounds a lot like Jack Reacher, which is yet another series that I kind of stopped reading...for no good reason. Have you read these, @EadieB ? 1mo
EadieB No I haven‘t yet! 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB 😳😱 Not often we find an author Eadie hasn‘t got. @gradcat! 🤔😂 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I do have Book 1,2, and 3 on my kindle but haven't read them yet. @gradcat 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB See even then @gradcat she has them in her electronic library! 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 You posted about a deal for these books and some of us got the books. I think it was a .99 special for the 3 books. Thanks for posting it as my library does not have his books. 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB He is one of those authors who doesn‘t seem to have spread beyond Amazon and whose books I enjoy. In the UK L J Sellers is another one and I love her Wade Jackson series set in the US. My library has none of her books and only the first one of Mark Dawson. Have you been on his website as if you register your email address you get some books emailed to you. I have pushed both authors a number of times as well as Alex Lukeman. (edited) 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I just sent my email. Looks like he is mostly self published. I always forget what‘s in my kindle as I‘d rather read the physical books. But I have been reading more ebooks so I am getting used to reading them. (edited) 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB It can become addictive! Some great self-Published authors. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I just have too many physical books that I need to read and never seem to get to them! 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB I know he feeling, I Read a lot of library ebooks but don‘t seem to get to my ebooks! 1mo
gradcat @Andrew65 & @EadieB You guys are cracking me up—Andrew has finally found a book that Eadie hasn‘t read, but whup! Oh! She has it on her Kindle! It‘ll be that rare kind of day that one of us comes up with something Eadie hasn‘t read or doesn‘t know!! 😂🤣😂 1mo
gradcat Oh, and thanks for the tip on free ebooks! ♥️ 1mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Got loads of those ideas! Canny shopper! 1mo
gradcat @Andrew65 You really are! It‘s a great thing! 👍 1mo

Huntress Moon | Alexandra Sokoloff
post image

#SoaringScores #CatchUp
#TheHunting in this series is done both by the FBI Special Agent & his team for the serial (really more vigilante) killer known as “The Huntress” & her hunting for evil & those are overtaken by it to kill.

The Hunter‘s (& Huntress) Moon is the first full moon after the harvest moon so it was just recently in the sky.🌕🤓

CrowCAH All the murders must take place in a time with a “moon”! 1mo
TrishB @Cinfhen these look really good!! Had a look and the first 5 are #99ponkindle ....may be tempted! 1mo

Andrew65 Thanks for bringing this series to my attention @Cinfhen @DebinHawaii Heard of the Author, but a new series to me. 1mo
Cinfhen It‘s Kindle‘s version of Happy Belated Birthday @TrishB ♥️🎁😘Give it a go @Andrew65 !!!! 1mo
TrishB @Cinfhen be rude not to now 😁😁 1mo
Cinfhen Haha!! Exactly @TrishB 1mo
gradcat @Cinfhen @Andrew65 New to me, too, Andrew...isn‘t it so lovely how much Cindy looks out for the #seriessquad ? You gotta love it! @TrishB They do look good, I agree...gotta check the US prices! ♥️♥️♥️ 1mo
DebinHawaii @TrishB @Andrew65 @gradcat #seriessquad @Cinfhen They aren‘t bad, on the darker side in terms of violence & the first ones were the strongest, but I like the MCs & will keep reading them. 1mo
TrishB 👍🏻 I‘ll probably try a couple! 1mo
gradcat @DebinHawaii Thanks for elaborating! That‘s very helpful. ♥️ 1mo
Andrew65 @DebinHawaii Thanks for the information. 😊 1mo
Cinfhen Hi @gradcat where have you been?!?!?! Hope all is well 🥰 (edited) 1mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Yes @Cinfhen does a great job. 👏👏👏 1mo
Cinfhen Thanks @Andrew65 ❣️❣️❣️❣️ 1mo
gradcat @Cinfhen Hiya! I know, I‘ve been missing in action on the music prompts! One reason is that Google changed the way I do image searches, and I couldn‘t figure it out (tech dinosaur, me!), but @Andrew65 told me how to do it, so I figure I‘ll jump back in in November. How are you? How is your husband? Hope you guys are well! ♥️ 1mo
Cinfhen Glad you‘re alright @gradcat all is well on this side of the world 🌍 thanks for asking. Looking forward to seeing your posts xx 1mo
gradcat @Cinfhen Glad all is well for you over there. Now I just have to find the November prompts! 😂 1mo
Andrew65 @gradcat 😊 Good Luck with The searches. (edited) 1mo

#RedRoseSeptember
Growing up near Brighton, every Friday night we had a #Chippytea picked up by my dad on his way home from work, and eaten straight from the newspaper at the kitchen table, dowsed in lots of onion vinegar (the vinegar from the picked onion jar)😋🐟📰
So in honor of my dad, this is the first book in his favorite local detective series, still going strong at book #26! I‘ll read it #oneday, seeing as it‘s set where I‘m from.😊

Cathythoughts Brilliant post 👍🏻♥️ 3mo
Ms_T Lots of nostalgia for you there! Great post 😃 3mo
Cinfhen Awwww, I‘m missing home for you❤️I‘d love to visit you in Brighton and hang with your dad 😁 3mo

EadieB @Cinfhen I‘ve read that one and getting ready to read book 2. 3mo
KarenUK @cinfhen ..... now that would be lovely! 💕 3mo
Cinfhen Wouldn‘t it !?!?!?! (edited) 3mo
gradcat @KarenUK & @Cinfhen Great Post! I‘ve read the first three of them, but then I guess I got sidetracked. I can‘t believe there are 26!! I had no idea! ♥️ (edited) 3mo
Crazeedi @Cinfhen @gradcat @EadieB @Andrew65 @TrishB @KarenUK great post, and I haven't read this series! 3mo
TrishB Lovely post ❤️ I am up to date in this series @Cinfhen 🎉🎉 3mo
Andrew65 Love this book series, one of my favourites. Unfortunately as currently suffering with gall bladder issues cannot have fish and chips and I so love them, and especially by the sea! 3mo
Andrew65 @Crazeedi @gradcat @EadieB @TrishB @KarenUK @Cinfhen Unfortunately I am totally up to date on this series. 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 so the problem is your gall bladder? 3mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Poor you! 3mo
Andrew65 @EadieB It looks like that! Testing for biliary colic and gall stones! Which are both affecting the liver. Did second set of blood tests this week today, got another blood test next week. Waiting for ultra sound scan date and got endoscopy next Saturday so feeling a bit sorry for myself, not to mention the pain. 😔 3mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks, but possibly feeling too sorry for myself! At least when at work kept busy and keeps my mind off it. 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 So sorry to hear that you have to go through all of those tests etc. Not fun! Hope they solve your problem and you are feeling better soon! 3mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes, fingers crossed, and thanks. Hope they can solve it quickly. Not the best thing on the first week of a school year! 3mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Definitely not! Good that you have your deputy to help you. But bad that she is so new and probably needs your direction. 3mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Thankfully so far just been missing for small bits of the day for tests. Just not as far on as I‘d like to be. Better now than last year. (edited) 3mo
LeahBergen Yum!! I‘m craving a chippy tea now! 3mo
Crazeedi @Andrew65 oh man that is no fun, I had that and needed up have gall bladder removed. Hope you find some answers 3mo
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Thanks, definitely agree about being no fun! Just in waiting game for scan at moment. Apparently urgent only means likely to be some time in the next two weeks! 3mo
gradcat @Andrew65 I hope you get seen to sooner rather than later...isn‘t that painful? 😣 3mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks. Yes! Although pain going up and down. Bigger problem is what can develop from it. 🤞 Eating a very bland diet which will hopefully be less painful. 3mo

Winter Study | Nevada Barr
post image

#RedRoseSeptember

(Day 5 - #HitTheNorth)

*Anna Pigeon must hit the north in this, Barr‘s 14th in the series. Sent to Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior, Anna is expected to trail the wolf study team there, so that she can bring that knowledge back to her bailiwick in the Rocky Mountain Nat‘l Park. But it wouldn‘t be an Anna Pigeon mystery without danger and death at every turn, and here, the wolves are beginning to act in unnatural ways.

arlenefinnigan Wolves gonna wolf, whatcha gonna do 🤷‍♀️ 3mo
EadieB @Cinfhen That book looks interesting! 3mo

gradcat @arlenefinnigan & @Cinfhen 😂🤣😂😅 You two are hilarious! 😆 3mo
gradcat @EadieB I always liked Nevada Barr‘s books. I haven‘t one in a long while, but I know I read almost all of them. They‘re really great if you like the outdoors, + you learn a LOT about the national parks featured in the books. Barr traveled to all of them to do her research, and the books reflect that. ♥️ 3mo
EadieB @gradcat I am reading a new one from NetGalley but it's a bit different than what she usually writes. 3mo
gradcat @EadieB Yes, I noticed when I was looking back on her Anna Pigeon series that she hasn‘t published one since 2016. But I did see where she‘s published a couple of standalones more recently. Do you like the one you‘re reading now? 3mo
EadieB @gradcat I‘m about halfway and I‘m not sure as it was kinda slow up to this point. I‘m hoping the ending will redeem it. 3mo
gradcat @EadieB I‘ll be looking for your review, then. ♥️ 3mo

Book 3 in the Tony Hill / Carol Jordan Series, one of my favourite series. This is an important book in the series and experiences for Carrol in this one changed her (understandably), and impacted on decisions she made in future books.
Another #Temptation as book 11 is published later this week, can‘t wait to see how Val built on life changing events for Tony in book 10. Strongly recommend this series. ❤️
#AyUpAugust

squirrelbrain Val McDermid has curated the Harrogate Crimewriting Festival (in my hometown) but I‘ve never read any of her books... another one to add to the list! 4mo
gradcat Fantastic book choice here—I loved this series! 4mo
gradcat @squirrelbrain That is so cool—I‘m jealous! I read her mostly in the 80s and 90s—she was much more prolific then—but she still puts out a book about every other year or so. The series that @Andrew65 has posted is one of her best, and I have been rewatching the TV adaptations on Acorn (guilty pleasure). I hope you get a chance to read some of her work! ♥️ 4mo

Andrew65 @squirrelbrain Thoroughly recommend the Tony Hill ; Carol Jordan Series. Book 2 is one of my all-tine favourite books. Jacko Vance, some character in that book! @gradcat (edited) 4mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Me too. 😍 Looking forward to getting to book 11 when it is published. (edited) 4mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Yes, and it just happens to come out here on the same day we‘re supposed to start the second Cara Black! 4mo

Andrew65 @gradcat So do I, a constant battle to keep my record up to date on Librarything. Often playing catch up and forgetting where i‘m up to in series. Book 2 of the Aimee LeDuc Series tomorrow. (edited) 3mo

gradcat @Andrew65 @Crazeedi & @EadieB Me, too—albeit a little late. Did we lose @Tove_Reads ? 3mo
Tove_Reads @gradcat I couldn‘t get hold of the book, so I bought it yesterday. I‘ll read it when I‘ll get it. I‘m ready for the third one though 🙂 3mo
