Unusual Suspects

Fiction’s First Lesbian Private Eye

Hello mystery fans! It’s the weekend and I’m excited to watch the start of True Detective‘s third season and read every book–every single one is my goal! Hope you have a good book or are out being your best Scooby gang–that makes sense in my head.

You can’t be married to someone without sometimes wanting to kill them…As Long As We Both Shall Live is JoAnn Chaney’s wicked, masterful examination of a marriage gone very wrong, a marriage with lots of secrets.

Kindle Deals

Meddling Kids cover imageMeddling Kids by Edgar Cantero is $2.99 if you’re looking for a modern twist on the Scooby-Doo gang.

The Winters by Lisa Gabriele is $2.99 if you’re in the mood for a suspenseful new take on Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca.

Broken Places by Tracy Clark is $2.99 (which I just reviewed this week) if you haven’t gotten it yet it is beyond worth this ridiculous sales price.

Some Books I Acquired This Week

House of Beauty cover imageI just got galleys for House Of Beauty by Melba Escobar (which is pitched as “Narcos meets Claws in this thought-provoking Colombian crime novel set in and around a beauty salon in Bogotá.”); The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda (Miranda is an author I follow because I’ve enjoyed all her mysteries so far); The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides on audiobook (a thriller a fellow Rioter really enjoyed, which is all I needed to know.)
