#Book Report #SaturdayDec7 #nonfiction #holidaycheer #mysteryoftheweek
Say Nothing: #nonfiction only got to p. 206
Maigret Chritmas : #holidaycheer finished my first introduction to this series- such fun! His character is great.
The Disappearance of Alistair Ainsworth: #mystery of the week. Don‘t know why I felt compelled to finish- may because I enjoyed other books by the same author. Would not recommend- I found it boring.

Cinfhen So your books balanced each other a yeah and a nah 4d

Such a chilling, s-l-o-w-l-y- build up of suspense in this short story (Cask of Amontillado).

Slow going with this book. Not enjoying it -
But rather than bailing, wanting to see the ending.

Crazeedi I'm thinking thumbs up for the pizza though ! Looks yummy! 1w
kspenmoll @Crazeedi You predicted correctly; pizza yummy, book meh...not so good. 1w

Sebastian is asked by Archbishop of Canterbury to investigate 2 corpses found in an ancient crypt separated by decades. Many suspects. Page turner & lots of twists and turns keep the plot moving. This series just gets better and better. Keeps me wanting Sebastian and his love, Kat, to get back together. Looking forward to the next in the series and highly recommend to those who love historical mystery.

FantasyChick Ooooh this sounds good! I might have to stack this one 16pts 2w
EadieB @FantasyChick This is the 5th book in the series so you should start at the 1st book in order to get to know the characters from the start. 2w
Crazeedi I know I've read 3 maybe 4 of these, I have to check 2w

The Sebastian St Cyr Series just goes from strength to strength! This has rapidly become a favourite series, strongly recommended if you like crime books, historical mysteries, Regency books, or just well written mystery and Suspense books. Love the way how C S Harris wove so much of Sebastian‘s story in alongside the murder mystery. What is not to love and I strongly recommend you give these a try. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Just wish easier to get hold of in UK

EadieB @ Andrew65 I'm finishing this tonight as I was babysitting all day and watching Christmas movies. Nice review and I agree that the books get stronger and stronger and they are well written! 2w
CoverToCoverGirl Excellent review! You‘re really making me want to add this series to my already enormous TBR list. 2w
Andrew65 @CoverToCoverGirl Thanks, it would be a great addition to your Mount TBR. 2w

#BookReport
Say Nothing: on p. 176
The Ruin: audio, finished
The Disappearance of Alistair Ainsworth: p. 71, library Book so reading this rather than the Cara Black mystery.

Suet624 Oh wow. I really, really liked Say Nothing. 2w
Cinfhen 👍🏽looks good 2w
kspenmoll @Suet624 I am totally engrossed & loving this book. I keep thinking: Where was on when all this was going on? Why was I so oblivious? I just remember the names Gerry Adams & Bobby Sands. No clue about Hughes or the Price sisters. I am learning so much. 2w
kspenmoll @Cinfhen I think it‘s doable. No expectations! Just read on. 2w
Suet624 Same here. I thought I knew so much about it too! 2w

Slept in this post Thanksgiving morning. Scone & coffee from a Barbara Pym mug. She was one of my mother‘s favorite authors.
Needed a small break from Say Nothing, so starting this library book.
Happy Friday everyone!
