It’s A Mystery

In a recent post I mentioned that I wanted to check out Cold Granite by Stuart MacBride for my upcoming mystery book group meeting. I still haven’t resolved my library card issue but I actually found a great deal so I got it for my Kindle. I also realized that I actually haven’t mentioned my book group much lately.

The reason is that my group is meeting via conference calls until we can get together again but after being on work calls all day I struggle to get on yet another call. If we were on Zoom and could see each other that would be better but some of our members don’t like that so I get it. Hopefully if everything continues to trend in the right direction we may get a chance to meet later this year. I would like to make an effort though so my plan is to join in on the discussion this month.

And, as we’re on the topic of mysteries I may not be reading as many as I usually do but I still keep adding more titles to my TBR. I wanted to share the titles that have recently caught my attention.

The Burning Girls by C.J. Tudor. I really liked The Chalk Man and am looking forward to this book about a vicar and the dark past of a village from which two girls disappeared.

A Deadly Fortune by Stacie Murphy. About a young woman in Gilded Age New York who must use her psychic talent to unravel a deadly conspiracy.

The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse. Half-hidden by forest and overshadowed by threatening peaks, Le Sommet has always been a sinister place. Long plagued by troubling rumors, the former abandoned sanatorium has since been renovated into a five-star minimalist hotel.

Children of Chicago by Cynthia Pelayo. When Detective Lauren Medina sees the calling card at a murder scene in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood, she knows the Pied Piper has returned. This horrifying retelling of the Pied Piper fairytale set in present-day Chicago.

I’ve seen The Sanatorium and The Burning Girls on several of blogs and so far I think all favorable reviews. Let me know what you think of these titles and if they’ve shown up on your wishlist too!
