A Bit Of My Week In Reading

Mimi Lee Gets A Clue cover imageI just started reading Mimi Lee Gets a Clue by Jennifer J. Chow, and it’s like a chick-lit novel (HATE that term) married a cozy and tossed in a talking cat and I am so very much enjoying it. I miss those funny novels about women trying to get their life together with funny and ridiculous scenes thrown in, so add murder and animals to that and I’m super happy.

And on audio: I started listening to the true crime memoir The Third Rainbow Girl: The Long Life of a Double Murder in Appalachia by Emma Copley Eisenberg, which seems to be an in depth look at the community, Eisenberg’s life and visit to the town, and the case–I’m still at the beginning. I’m halfway through The Janes, the sequel to Two Girls Down, a tense novel with an investigators pairing I really enjoy, which takes on a case of child sex trafficking this time.
