Greetings from sunny California! Dana Mentink, here.
What’s the best thing about summer? Gorging yourself on books! What’s even better? Posting reviews on my blog of books that really float my boat. With very few exceptions, I generally hear from the authors, whether big name or small, who appreciate having their fine work recognized. Since I know how hard it is to write a book, I only write reviews for the books that in my opinion are a cut above. But Dana! That means you don’t write all those good, juicy hit pieces taking authors to task. You bet. I only write about the ones I loved. Sure it’s one sided, but it’s my blog and I do it my way! (Can you hear the music playing?) So here’s a list of the books I’ve read this summer. It’s a mixture of mystery, cozies, suspense and ‘miscellanous.’
So please add to the list. What’s a book that YOU’VE enjoyed this summer?
Skullduggery – an awesome mystery by Aaron Elkins featuring a man who can read a skeleton like a book. Fascinating!
Beguiled, by Deeanne Gist and J. Mark Bertrand– interesting inspirational mystery about a dog walker.
Monk in Trouble – another excellent and hilarious mystery by Lee Goldberg.
Sprinkle With Murder Jenn McKinlay, fun and frothy mystery that will leave you craving cupcakes
Stirring Up Strife – A new series of inspy cozies with recipes included
