I just saw that Malice Domestic has announced the list of nominees for the 2007 Agatha Awards. Here are some of the mysteries nominated:
Best First Novel:
Consigned to Death by Jane Cleland
Feint of Art by Hailey Lind
Murder on the Rocks by Karen MacInerney
The Chef Who Died Sauteing by Honora Finkelstein
The Heat of the Moon by Sandra Parshall
All Mortal Flesh by Julia Spencer-Fleming
Messenger of Truth by Jacqueline Winspear
The Saddlemaker’s Wife by Earlene Fowler
The Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard
Why Casey Had to Die by L.C. Hayden
I’ve only read Messenger of Truth and really enjoyed that one, after all it’s a Maisie Dobbs book. You can read the full list of nominees here.
In honor of the awards, and most importantly that Our Coffee Rings has chosen an Agatha Christie novel for the March discussion, today I started reading Murder on the Orient Express. So far so good but that Mrs. Hubbard is really getting on my nerves. This is only my second Agatha mystery. How about you? Are you an Agatha Christie fan? If so, which books are your favorites?
