After a false start at the beginning of the month I picked it up, started over and became enthralled. Part 7 dragged for me a bit but otherwise it‘s captivating. #ChunksterMini @Amiable #Booked23 #Featuring3Generations @BarbaraTheBibliophage @alisiakae @Cinfhen #SummerEndReadathon @TheSpineView #BuddyRead @Cuilin 4.5🌟

Cinfhen Perfect pick 🙌🏻😃 1h

Combined #BookReport and #WeeklyForecast :

I had a great reading week and managed to complete a couple #buddyread titles and a book I‘ve read off and on for months.

This week should see the completion of more buddy read titles and hopefully a title or two from my “actively reading” list. On audio, I‘m nearly finished with Love, Lies, and Liquor, and since the Agatha Raisin books are short, I think I will start Tom Lake this week.

Cinfhen Great! Looks like you‘re using your new found free time 💕💕💕hope things are going well 3d
Librarybelle @Cinfhen They are! Still adjusting, but I love being home. 3d
Cinfhen That‘s wonderful 🫶🏼 3d

First published in 1934 our #buddyread for next month is set in a bookshop and antiquarian books play a major role! Delightful! Join us if you can - discussion on Oct 29th. #goldenagecrimeclub

Aimeesue Rats! It‘s not out for Kindle in the US until December. How disappointing! (edited) 3d

Yeah - it‘s #buddyread time!
Discussion 1
This month we‘ve read our first #goldenagecrimeclub set outside of England, written in 1941 by an American woman, set in a US town. Let‘s dive right in - Do you think this book differed in any ways from the British Mysteries we‘ve been reading?

jlhammar It did have a different vibe to it, but hard to put my finger on what it was exactly. Maybe a bit more celebratory or embracing of the independent, the eccentric, the less than proper, perhaps felt a bit more soap opera-esque? Lots of money talk and lots of shooting (guns) which maybe gave it more of an American/Wild West kind of feel? 3d
Ruthiella For sure the location colored and shaped the plot and characters, but in some ways, the eccentric characters in a small New Mexican town weren‘t all that different from those in an English village… 3d
Librarybelle What I liked about this one was the female MC, with the mystery unfolding through her words. 2d

quietjenn Definitely said to myself “lots more guns in this one“ as I was reading! 2d
Aimeesue @quietjenn Yes! Just hanging your pistol on the back of your chair in the bar! Losing your purse with your gun in it! My goodness, times were different. 1d
Aimeesue @Librarybelle It was a great perspective, since everybody and his brother came in to Jean‘s shop, and she got ALL kinds of info from everyone! Lots of it completely irrelevant, but sorting it out was interesting. 1d
Aimeesue @Ruthiella Yes, everybody in every small town talks about everybody else and has an opinion about everything that goes on. Jean was a little Miss Marple-ish, sitting back and observing as she polished the silver pieces. 1d
Aimeesue @jlhammar There was a lot more acceptance of the breaking of social norms, up to sexual behavior, I thought. Sure, people have fairly shadowy pasts, but that‘s OK, since EVERYBODY is pretty much a newcomer. 1d
AmyG I apologize as I never got to this one. Life still going crazy as ever. 1d
kwmg40 I too noticed that there were more guns everywhere! There seemed also to be a more diverse group of characters. 1d
