Reading right now:
“Murder Strikes a Pose” by Tracy Weber. Award-winning yoga instructor Tracy Weber, pens the first in a new mystery series where her hero (also a yoga instructor) Kate Davidson struggles to keep her small business afloat while trying to prove that the local homeless alcoholic was murdered. Weber’s books revolve around all the things she loves the most which includes yoga and dogs.
On hold right now:
“Silence Once Begun” by Jesse Ball. Gifted poet, novelist, and artist, Jesse Ball’s new book sounds remarkable. It centers around Oda Sotatus who has confessed to making eight people disappear in the same Japanese town. After his confession, Sotatus is arrested but will not answer any questions or discuss the case right through his trail, conviction, and execution. But was Sotatus’ confession a lie?
Other Mysterious Things Available:
Also available this month is the tenth in the DI Andy Horton series “Death Surge” by Pauline Rowson (to be followed soon by the eleventh book “Shroud of Evil” which comes out in April). If you like British crime fiction, this series is for you.
“Fair and Tender Ladies” by Chris Nickson is the latest in the Richard Nottingham series. This series is a great selection for those readers who love historical mysteries. The series takes place in the 1730s and the main character, Richard Nottingham, is the Constable of Leeds.
“Hunting Shadows” by Charles Todd is the 16th book in the Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge series. This is also an historical mystery series which the authors started writing in 1996.
I happened upon a series of 11 TV movies released by the Hallmark Channel between 2003 and 2007 called “Mystery Woman” starring Kellie Martin. The main character Samantha Kinsey owes the Mystery Woman Bookstore and just happens to get involved in solving real life mysteries. These were really fun to watch so if they pop up on the Hallmark Channel take the time to watch them.
