Corpus Christmas | Margaret Maron
post image

I put a bunch of Christmas mysteries on hold through the library this weekend 😬 so while I wait for those to come in, I‘m enjoying this #Libby read. My first Margaret Maron, and while it was definitely written in the 1980s it hasn‘t aged half badly. I‘m going to need to look for more of Lieutenant Sigrid Harald in the future!

This came highly recommended to me by some of the people at the reading retreat, so I was happy to find it at Foyle‘s! We arrived in London today and strolled around Charing Cross Rd and Cecil Court. Foyle‘s was really impressive. If we had unlimited luggage space we would have brought more of the books home with us. 😬

LiteraryinLititz @LeeRHarry @TrishB Thanks for the recommendation! 2w
LeeRHarry @LiteraryinLititz Glad you enjoyed it 😊 I know, luggage space is always an issue, and I just can‘t help myself! Like all of us here I imagine! 😆 2w

Corpses in Enderby | George Bellairs

Mehso-so

“Corpses in Enderby” is another good piece of 1950s detective fiction by George Bellairs. This is a nice story, but just an okay 3 star read for me. I won‘t be ruling out Bellairs‘ books in the future though (there are loads more for me to read!)

My full review is up on my blog now 📚

#TheBoneGarden #KateEllis

A skeleton of a corpse who has been buried alive is discovered at an excavation of the gardens of Earlsacre Hall. Det Sgt Wesley Peterson is busy trying to solve a murder of a man stabbed to death in a caravan park. Are these murders related? Solicitor Brian Willerby may have the answer. Kate Ellis brings us a mystery that seems to imitate the past. Read this to find out what it is about Earlsacre that leads to murder.

Andrew65 Think I liked this one and the series more than some others. A very typical English feel to this murder mystery series. Most US Crime is much faster paced and often more gritty. Obviously some exceptions to this on both sides of the pond. (edited) 3w
EadieB @Andrew65 The only complaint I have about her writing is that her writing does not flow well for me. 3w
Andrew65 @EadieB It might be about her use of English, because i‘ve not noticed this. 3w
EadieB @Andrew65 Yes, her language is a bit stilted. 3w

Another Aussie book , the author comes from Britain but now lives between here, Perth , and NZ. Also printed by local press. I really enjoyed the story , set in places I know so well. Set in the boom time just before the GFC.
I‘ll read more if I come upon them in the library. @MrsMalaprop

I don't know why it's taken me nine months to pick up the second Det. Eloise Norton mystery when I loved the first one, but I'm excited to dig in.
