What a cute cozy mystery this was! Sort of the same premise as “The Cat Who…” stories, only this series has just one slething cat, whole name is Midnight Louie. Louie’s human partner is a Public Relations freelancer named Temple Barr. And the whole thing is set in early 90s Las Vegas. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read more in this series!

This is the first V. I Warshawski book, I really enjoyed it! This book was written almost thirty years ago, before cell phones, and computers. Just a good old fashioned private detective story. I know that Paretsky is still writing V.I. Warshawski books, I want to read them all and see how she brings the character along as the years go by.
So Glad that I started this series with the first one! I’ve ordered the second one on Paperback swap, and have a couple others on hand here.

I really enjoyed this book, the first “American Adventure” of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, by Larry Millett. Holmes and Watson travel to Minneolta in 1894 to investigate a serious threat against the owner of the Eastern Minnesota Railroad. This was a great story, can’t wait to read more by this author!

This was the second book in Mary Jane Maffini’s series which features personal organizer Charlotte Adams. I liked the mystery better in this one, and enjoyed getting to know the characters better. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series, but I’m not sure there are any more out yet.
I really enjoyed this one. It was our Book Club book for November, and since I missed the meeting I just now finished it up. A story about a landscape designer who goes to England to copy the famous White Garden for her wealthy Long Island client. Along the way, she discovers what appears to be a missing journal written by Virginia Woolf, which could change how history perceives the death of Virginia Woolf. Really good!
This was a fun cozy mystery. Written by Tim Myers, using the pseudonym Melissa Glazer.
I ordered this book on Paperbackswap.com on a whim. But once I started reading it, I got right into it and really enjoyed it! This is the third book of stories featuring Inspector Seymour of Scotalnd Yard, and the books take place in the 1912-1913 time period. This one, obviously, takes place in Athens, where Seymour is sent to figure out who is trying to poison the Ottoman sultan show is in exile there in Athens.
Really fun read! Want to read the first two books in this series now.
Fourth Hawkenlye Mystery. These are really interesting mysteries set in Hawkenlye Abbey, in the laste 1150s. The main characters are the Abbey’s leader, Abbess Helewise, and a neighboring noble, Sir Josse d’Acquin. This one was really enjoyable.

Second mystery in Monica Ferris’ Needlecraft Mystery series. I liked this one better than the first. Ferris does a good job developing her characters and they are quite likable. I’m happy to find another good series….it’s a long one!
