Just the Sexiest Man Alive, by Julie James. Romance. Horrible “hero.”
Not a Creature was Stirring, by Jane Haddam. Cozy mystery. Nice atmosphere and good characters. Not really “solvable” feeling, but a good read.
The Body in the Basement, by Katherine Hall Page. Cozy mystery (much cozier than the Haddam). A change of pace for this series, having a sleuth that isn’t Faith. Enjoyed. Not challenging in the slightest.
The Darkness Knows, by Cheryl Honigford. Historical mystery, set in the 30s. Not good characterizations. Decent plotting.
Farm Fresh Murder, by Paige Shelton. Cozy mystery. Ridiculous sleuth.
Guaranteed to Bleed, by Julie Mulhern. Historical mystery, set in the 70s. This series is so entertaining. Like “The Gilmore Girls” if Lorelei were more of a pushover and people kept getting murdered in her hostas.
A Pinch of Poison, by Alyssa Maxwell. Historical mystery, set in the 20s. Two POV characters, but they are completely indistinguishable for me. The ending of this one made no sense at all.
The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, by Michael Lewis. Non-fiction. LOVED this.
The Murderer’s Tale, by Margaret Frazer. Historical mystery, set in the 15th century. I have a soft spot for ecclesiastical mysteries.
Consequences of Sin, by Clare Langley-Hawthorne. Historical mystery, set during the Edwardian period. Readable, but with odd fantastical elements.
The Unquiet Bones (The Chronicles of Hugh de Singleton, Surgeon), by Melvin R. Starr. Historical mystery set in the medieval period. I don’t remember the actual dates. Does a lot of telling, not showing at the beginning, but then it seems to settle in. The author LOVES foreshadowing, and I do not.
