October books

Still not reading much lately; 10 books this month plus 2 I didn't finish.

2 new authors this month!
Jocelynn Drake's vampire fantasy series Dark Days debuts with Nightwalker.
Mira is the only vampire "living" who plays with fire. It's the one thing that has kept her alive through the centuries against the other vampires. But now she faces a new enemy, a vampire hunter who has killed countless numbers of her kind.
A very good book. I'm looking forward to the next one.
Franklin House has a nonfiction book, The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle, that I found very informative. An interesting book.

Some of my favorite series continues with:
Local author Kate Wilhelm's latest Oregon attorney Barbara Holloway mystery, Cold Case.
A 22 year old unsolved murder is supposedly the motive for a more recent murder that Barbara's new client has been charged with.
William G. Tapply's latest Boston attorney Brady Coyne mystery, Hell Bent.
Brady's ex-girlfriend wants him to represent her photojournalist brother in his divorce. When he's found dead in his apartment, the police believe it to be a suicide but Brady has some doubts and noses around where someone doesn't want him to look.
John Sandford's latest Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator, Virgil Flowers. It's a sequel (& parallel series) to his Lucas Davenport (Prey) series.
Davenport calls him in to investigate a homicide that's a dead ringer to one that happened the week before. Copy cat or serial killer or...?
</b>John J. Lamb's</b> latest Teddy Bear Collector's mystery, The Clockwork Teddy.
When a robotic teddy bear is found at a murder scene, Brad talks his former homicide partner into letting him help solve the crime.
Tamora Pierce's Melting Stones was released last year as an audio book and has finally been published in book form.
It's the story of Briar's student Evvy, a stone mage.
Rachel Caine's latest in the Morgansville Vampires series, Feast of Fools wraps up the very good, must read books from this month. Not only has Claire's parents moved to Morgansville, adding more stress to Claire's already hectic life but her mentor, the vampire leader Amelie, also has a relative trying to move into town. Her father, whom she thought she'd killed centuries ago.

I also read the latest Coffeehouse mystery, French Pressed by Cleo Coyle.
Clare's daughter, Joy, is arrested for the murder of her lover - an older, married man who's the premiere chef where she's interning.
A good book to read when there's time.
Sammi Carter with her latest Candy Shop mystery, Goody Goody Gunshots is the same. Whenever I got around to it!
Abby witnesses a murder just off the highway but when she returns with the police, there's no body and no evidence of anything happening. A few days later, the body turns up but not when and how she described the scene. She sets out to prove to her police boyfriend that she wasn't making that story up!

What is it with 'Abby'? Is this some sort of code name for female protagonist in a cosy mystery series?

Victoria Laurie - Psychic Eye series

Kate Collins - Flower Shop series

And this Sammi Carter you mention.

It's driving me nuts, I tell ya! LOL

Argh! How could I forget?

What's wrong with these people? I'm really starting to hate the very thought of the name. Really.

After reading the entire Name book looking for the perfect name for their female character and not finding it, they turned to the first page and used the first name. *grin*

It does get kind of confusing when you jump right from one series to the other, doesn't it?
