Looking for a Good Mystery

I need some advice for some good summer reading. I've just finished the whole Louise Penny "Inspector Gamache" series, and have started the first in the Tana French mystery series "In the Woods."  Do you have any favorites to recommend?

  1. If you enjoy British mysteries, Anne Cleeves wrote both the Shetland series and the Vera series. I've read both and enjoyed them a lot. I absolutely love Louise Penny. If you want a bit of humour, Janet Evanovich has a numbered series that are all murder / crime mysteries. I love them - an easy read. Start with One for the Money. -Jenn

    1. Jenn - I think I might have started the Louise Penny books after a mention on your blog. If so, thanks so much! I have enjoyed them all, my Mom has enjoyed each one as soon as I've finished them, and my good friend is reading them now. I have the new one coming out in August preordered on Amazon! I think I watched the Shetland series on Netflix but would like to read the books. I know Vera is also a series and supposed to be very good, but I can't get it on Prime or Netflix. Those books are definitely some I'd like to try.

  2. Have you read Sue Grafton, she has a set of 25 books, from A to Y, sadly she died before finishing Z. They follow a PI, Kinsey Millhone, each book is a new case, you can sart from A and work your way through or even read them out of order.

    1. Thanks for reminding me of Sue Grafton. I read some of them many years ago, loved them and waited for each new one to come out. I'll have to give them another try. I think I got to P or something like that!

  3. I like historical mysteries and have just read 3 books by A. J. Mackenzie (actually a Canadian/British husband and wife team) - The Body on the Doorstep, The Body in the Ice and The Body in the Boat. They have only written the 3 so far, but I can't wait for any follow-ups!

    1. Oh these sound good. I looked them up and read the descriptions. I've put them on my wish list.

  4. I'm reading a really good book "The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter" by Hazel Gaynor. I wouldn't call it a mystery, per se, but a very good read.

  7. Deborah Crombie also writes a great series of books-but again need to read in order of publication as characters develop over time. Also Marcia Muller writes a good series set in San Francisco and the Bay Area of California. For old writers, George Bellairs is always good- I just discovered him.

    1. I seem to remember the name Marcia Muller, but none of the books I looked at quickly ring a bell. So it sounds like a good series for me. And my daughter lives in the Bay Area and works in San Francisco so that would be interesting! I put the first 2 Deborah Crombie books in my Amazon cart. I think they sound like something my Mom would like, too. Thanks!

  8. Howdy fellow upstate New Yorker (although, we are more Southern Tier-but none the less, still upstate, grin). I like the cozy mysteries set in New York state; books by Lena Gregory, Christine Wenger, Kari Lee Townsend, Susannah Hardy just name a few. I also enjoy the cozy mysteries set in Maine or Maryland. You can just put that in your search engine as Cozy Mysteries set in New York etc. smiles

    1. I never heard of that genre before but it sounds right up my alley. I googled it! I love cozy! Visited your blog and I'm following now! This weather we're getting over the weekend looks horrid. They've already cancelled horse racing at Saratoga for Saturday. Stay cool!

  9. I have not been reading much lately, but I just read, "Where the Crawdads Grow" Not positive on the title, hubby loaded it onto his I-pad. It was easy to read and kind of whimsical. I enjoyed it!
    hugs,

  19. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647
    you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS

  22. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
