Another article on the Scarlet imprint debacle: He wrote/she wrote. On gender in mystery writing and prompted for a response regarding everything that’s been published Pegasus’ Twitter account responded: “Hi Nick, our ownership has the highest respect for the integrity of Scarlet’s editorial board, but moving forward Pegasus will no longer be partners in Scarlet’s publishing program.”
Secrets, Lies, & Crawfish Pies (Romaine Wilder #1) by Abby L. Vandiver is $2.99 and a great cozy mystery series. The sequel, Love, Hopes, & Marriage Tropes, is also on sale for $2.99 and starts with a dude dying on his wedding day–the wedding being held at a funeral home!
Karin Slaughter’s Pretty Girls is $1.99! (This one is still on my must-read list so I don’t have TW for you but all of her books I’ve read are intense AF.)
A Bit Of My Week In Reading
Currently Reading: Girls Like Us by Cristina Alger on audiobook, which is a return home mystery starring an FBI agent; Vivien Chien’s 4th in the cozy Noodle Shop mystery series I really enjoy, Wonton Terror; Steph Cha’s Your House Will Pay set in early 1990s L.A. exploring racial tensions between Korean and Black communities; Theme Music by T. Marie Vandelly which is an intense thriller with horror vibes that I can’t put down so far.
And I plan on spending some time this weekend with Edward Lee’s Smoke & Pickles cookbook because yuuuuuum.
