We all have a pile of books that one day we’ll get around to reading. Well, I hope we all have and it’s not just me. This will be a regular update on books I think are worth reading.
I’m going to add a few here that I’ve got waiting patiently to be read, I’m hoping if you have read any of them that you will let me know whether they should move up or down the pile, I’ll be adding a few books that look interesting too and will be added to the pile in the future.
Death on a Dirty Afternoon by Colin Garrow.
I’ve read this before but it stays in the TBR file because its so good it needs to be read more than once. There are just a select few books that make it to this stage, so you really should get yourself a copy. Well worth reading, I promise.
When taxi driver Frank is found dead on his dining room table, ex-cabbie Terry Bell assumes his old friend died of a heart attack. But when Terry’s former boss also turns up with his face bashed in, it starts to look like there’s a connection.
Faced with a Detective Inspector who doesn’t like coincidences, and a series of threatening letters, Terry does a bit of investigating of his own, but when another body is discovered, the temperature starts to rise – in more ways than one.
Death on a Dirty Afternoon is book #1 in the Terry Bell Mystery series.
It’s a seaside town like any other seaside town: from the non-existent sand dunes and candy-striped deck chairs to the concrete piers and tacky market stalls, they’ve got it all – including dead bodies, arson attacks and hockey-stick wielding murderers. If you love mysteries and amateur sleuthing, bald-headed villains and Swedish construction bosses, this’ll be right up your everyday seaside-town street.
Trudy’s Diary by Amy M. Reade.
Daisy Carruthers moved to Washington, DC, from New York City following an emotionally draining murder investigation, little knowing she would soon be involved in two more. But when her boss and her best friend come under suspicion for killing two adulterous lovers, Daisy has no choice but to help when they ask.
And when she comes across a diary and an old dime novel with suspiciously similar stories and unknown origins, she knows all the mysteries are somehow connected.
Can she figure out the identity of the killer–or killers–before it’s too late?
I shall also shamelessly leave you with my own offering, which of course I shall read again, and again and again… 😉

This is the most dangerous story that local journalist, Alex Price, has taken on so far and this time it’s personal.Fifty years of love culminate in the magical wedding ceremony between Jack and Mary, a day full of love and laughter, but it will also offer up dark opportunities.

Will love triumph or will there be a price to pay for such happiness?
