Sponsored by Grace is Gone by Emily Elgar and Harper Paperbacks.
Meg and her daughter Grace are the most beloved family in their small town, the linchpin that holds their tight-knit English community together. So when Meg is found brutally murdered and her daughter missing, the members of their community are rocked by the tragedy. Her daughter, Grace, has been sick for years and all Meg has ever done is look after her. Now Meg is dead, Grace is gone—and their close friends and neighbors fear for Grace’s life.
Hi mystery fans! Publishing is wide awake with the start of the year so I have a bunch of things to click–including true crime–, kindle deals, and some of my reading this week. And a mea culpa: I told you Briarpatch had a January premiere date but that was for a “first look” airing trailer. The pilot episode will be February 6th–so good news you haven’t missed it!
From Book Riot And Around The Internet
Rincey and Katie talk about the 2020 titles they’re most excited for on the latest Read or Dead.
Watch the Trailer for Netflix’s Latest True Crime Series, ‘The Goop Lab’ (This is obviously not true crime but this really made me laugh so just leaving it here.)
If you’re looking to start a procedural series with a unique-ish premise of a community of victims and criminals hiding out, here’s one of my favorites: City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong is $2.99! (TW domestic abuse/ rape/ pedophile/ suicide/ stalking)
A Bit Of My Week In Reading
Acquired And Excited: One of my most anticipated books of 2020 is Winter Counts by David Heska Wanbli Weiden which follows Virgil Wounded Horse, a local enforcer on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota! And Who Is Vera Kelly? has a sequel coming and give me all the spy ladies, so I snatched the galley for Vera Kelly is Not a Mystery by Rosalie Knecht real quick!
Currently listening to: I just started The Hand On the Wall by Maureen Johnson, which is the final in the Truly Devious trilogy set at an elite school with a past and present mystery, and it’s so good! I’m almost finished with the heartbreaking and beautiful memoir From Scratch by Tembi Locke (yes, Attica Locke‘s sister) about loss, family, and food.
