Reading Right Now:
“What Darkness Brings” by C.S. Harris is her 8th book in the Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series. The first was “What Angels Fear” and all have been really exciting and excellent reads. In her former life, Harris was a history professor so it should come as no surprise that this is an historical mystery series (set in Regency England). In this latest installment, St. Cyr investigates the death of a notorious London diamond merchant in order to help his former lover whose husband is accused of the murder. St. Cyr and his new wife Hero find themselves drawn into a world where greed rules and anything can happen.
On Hold Right Now:
Brad Parks’ “The Good Cop” is the fourth novel in the Carter Ross series. The first two were funny and thrilling. I wasn’t as thrilled with the third, but have high hopes for number four. The main character is an investigative reporter in Newark, NJ. The books are full of humor and action which turns out to be a great combination. If you want to start at the beginning of the series, read “Faces of the Gone.”
If you need a little “silly,” it’s time to tune into “Psych.” The seventh season is under way, but you can always go back and watch from the beginning.
