November Books

Keeping up with my continuing series this month, I finally got to
Jasper Fforde with his latest Thursday Next novel, First Among Sequels.
Thursday Next continues as a Spec. Op. agent in The Book World while trying to motivate her son to join the Chronoguard.
I didn't like this one as much as the first four though it had it's humorous moments.

Charlaine Harris with her latest Harper Connelly mystery, An Icy Cold Grave.
Harper Connelly can commune with dead bodies ever since she was struck by lightning. She knows how they died but not who killed them. This time she's hired by a newly elected sheriff to find some teenage boys who have gone missing.
Good book even with the killer pegged early on.

Mike Shepherd and his latest Kris Longknife book, Kris Longknife: Audacious.
Kris Longknife isn't your ordinary princess. She joined the Space Force Navy and continues on with her mission.
Good book with a surprising ending. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Maddy Hunter with her latest Passport to Peril mystery, Norway to Hide.
Emily Andrews conducts her group of Iowans to Norway where they meet up with a group from Florida, one of whom ends up dead.
An absolutely hilarious book with Emily's ex-husband Jack, now known as Jackie after her operation, helping discover clues to whodunit.

Claudia Bishop has a holiday special Hemlock Falls mystery, A Carol for a Corpse.
The Quilliam sisters broker a deal with Kingsfield Publishing to help keep their Inn running in the black. When the corporate head is found at the bootom of the gorge in a skiing accident, it's up to Qwill to prove murder and whodunit before the sisters lose the Inn in the widow's threatened lawsuit.
Good book and I should have figured it out! (What's that they say about hindsight? lol)

Alex Archer with his latest Rogue Angel novel, Warrior Spirit.
Annja Creed is approached after her martial arts tournament while on vacation in Japan to help search for an ancient artifact given to a ninja warrior family.
An interesting and entertaining book.

Terri Farley and her latest Wild Horse Island book, Rain Forest Rose.
Darby gets another lesson in training her mustang on the Hawaiian Islands.
This one goes to my niece when she gets caught up.

Jennifer Chiaverini and her latest Elm Creek Quilt story, The New Year's Quilt.
Sylvia takes a trip down memory lane as she finishes up The New Year's Quilt for a special occasion.
A very good book though it seems inconsistent with how I remember some of the other books.

Leslie Caine with her latest Domestic Bliss mystery, Fatal Feng Shui.
Gilbert and Sullivan Designs takes on their first client whose neighbor is waging a feng shui war against her.
Another humorous Sullivan and Gilbert mystery.

Dolores Johnson with her last two books, released only in hardcover, in the Mandy Dyer series, Taking the Wrap and Pressed to Kill.
Mandy Dyer, owner of a dry cleaning business, finds the clues to murder in the clothes she takes in to clean.
Humorous mystery stories.

Cara Black was the new author I started last month with her Aimee Leduc Investigations series. Murder in Belleville, Murder in the Sentier, Murder in the Bastille, Murder in Clichy are the ones I've read this month.
Aimee owns a computer security private investigations firm in Paris, France.
Pretty good books.

No new authors this month though I've got a pile waiting on my tbr shelves.

Two different authors I've wanted to ask you about:

First, have you read the Philip Pullman trilogy that everyone seems to be talking about now?

Second, have you read any of Mary Daheim's Bed and Breakfast Mystery series?

If so, what did you think of them?

I haven't read Philip Pullman's trilogy. I've heard many conflicting opinions about the books - from how fantastic they were to they were really slow and that only the last one was worth reading. I figured I'd watch the movies for this particular trilogy.

I have kept up with Mary Daheim's Bed and Breakfast series from the start. They're the humorous, fast-paced cozy mysteries that I enjoy reading but the last few have gotten a bit stale or formulaic.
