Hello mystery fans!
Sponsored by The Hummingbird Dagger by Cindy Anstey and Swoon Reads
A dark and twisty regency novel perfect for readers who like their Jane Austen classics with a side of mystery and murder. 1833. A near-fatal carriage accident has deposited an unconscious young woman on the doorstep of young Lord Ellerby. When she finally awakens, it is with no memory of who she is or where she came from. As the mystery woman tries to solve the puzzle of her own identity and the appalling events that brought her to their door, nothing can prepare her for the escalating dangers that await. What she can’t remember could be deadly.

And here’s a romance book that is also a spy novel set in the Civil War for $2.99: An Extraordinary Union (The Loyal League #1)by Alyssa Cole. It’s really good!
And I Need To Shout About This Book Now
As promised I inhaled the followup to Bluebird, Bluebird—Heaven, My Home (September 17)–because I love Attica Locke and this is one of the best crime series being written. And since BB had left that very clever twist, which I haven’t been able to stop thinking about, I desperately needed the next book. Texas Ranger Darren Matthews is back, starting basically where the last book left off, and his decisions and lack of decisions have come home to roost. He also has a new case, a missing young boy, in a town brimming with racial tension. Locke is brilliant at creating tense mysteries where the setting is as alive, and important, as the characters without distracting–but rather enhancing–the mystery element. You get history, a great mystery, smart twists, rich characters, and a deep exploration of the justice–and injustice–system of our country. I can’t wait for the FX series adaptation of these books–there so much to explore! And in case it wasn’t obvious, if you’re a fan of Locke’s this is so worth the prebuy, or making sure your library is purchasing it so you can get first on that list. And if you’ve yet to read Locke, she’s one of the best crime writers so chop-chop.
