Book Discussion: Pinned Post Week 11

As you may have guessed from my review, I finished up Murder on Black Swan Lane this week. I’ve been in the mood for mysteries, so this week, I found some more possible selections:

Edinburgh Twilight Love the cover and the price is good too.

As a new century approaches, Edinburgh is a city divided. The wealthy residents of New Town live in comfort, while Old Town’s cobblestone streets are clotted with criminals, prostitution, and poverty.

Detective Inspector Ian Hamilton is no stranger to Edinburgh’s darkest crimes. Scarred by the mysterious fire that killed his parents, he faces his toughest case yet when a young man is found strangled in Holyrood Park.

With little evidence aside from a strange playing card found on the body, Hamilton engages the help of his aunt, a gifted photographer, and George Pearson, a librarian with a shared interest in the criminal mind. But the body count is rising. As newspapers spin tales of the “Holyrood Strangler,” panic sets in across the city. And with each victim, the murderer is getting closer to Hamilton, the one man who dares to stop him.

Here’s another interesting mystery–and it’s only 99 cents. It may not stay on sale long though. Check prices before clicking buy.

All that Glitters

Just arrived from New York, Broadway actress Laura Wilson is slated to star in Hollywood’s newest screwball comedy. At her side, of course, is Jake Donovan, under pressure to write his next mystery novel. But peace and quiet are not to be had when an all-too-real murder plot intrudes: After a glitzy party, the son of a studio honcho is discovered dead from a gunshot wound. And since Jake exchanged words with the hothead just hours before his death, the bestselling author becomes the LAPD’s prime suspect.

In 1930s Tinseltown, anything goes. Proving his innocence won’t be easy in a town where sex, seduction, and naked power run rampant. With gossip columnist Louella Parsons dead-set on publicizing the charges against him, Jake has no choice but to do what everyone else does in the City of Angels: act like someone else. Blackie Doyle, the tough-talking, fist-swinging, womanizing hero from Jake’s novels wouldn’t pull any punches until he exposed the real killer—nor will Jake, to keep the role of a lifetime from being his last.

The first in the series is: The Yankee Club

  1. I thought I would try All That Glitters.

  2. I just started Jan Karon’s newest Mitford book, “To Be Where You Are“. I just love these books. They’re sweet, without being saccharine; touching; funny; Christian, without being bejeezly; and very human. They make me wish I could live in a town — heck, a country — like Mitford.

  3. I love the whimsy of those covers, Dee. The first in the series is At Home in Mitford.

    Margaret, let us know what you think of it!

  4. For those of you who love Mary Stewart, a lot of her books have just become kindlized and some of them are on sale. I snapped up Airs Above the Ground and am happily absorbing every word.

    I’m also reading All That Glitters. Kind of a slow start because it’s the second in series and they have to catch us up. Once that’s done, good set up for the murder, good murder, set in 1930’s Hollywood which is always a good backdrop. This is my sitting outside with the dog book.

  6. Update for anyone who cares: The third and final book of the Ilona Andrews Inkeeper series, One Fell Sweep, was excellent. While the story had a complete ending – no cliffhanger – there was a tiny clue there at the end regarding one of the background mysteries so there is a possible opening for another book or spinoff series. Each of these books got better than the previous, as they were begun as a fun experiment and posted online at their website like a serial, I think they had fun creating this story. I sure had fun reading it. All three had laugh out loud moments but the third had extra helpings. I love a good laugh.
