Books of the Day

I really do have some amazing and talented friends.  This month brings three great new releases from Mary Jane Maffini (the 4th in her Charlotte Adams series), Riley Adams (debut), and Avery Aames (debut).

I read my first Charlotte Adams mystery after picking up Organize Your Corpses at the Festival of Mystery this year, and I'm so glad I did. I adore Charlotte and highly recommend this series.

I haven't had a chance to read Delicious and Suspicious, but anything Riley writes is incredible (did you know Riley is a pen name for the super talented Elizabeth Spann Craig?). And what a debut for Avery with The Long Quiche Goodbye. It was just announced that TLQG hit #7 on the B&N best seller list. What an amazing way to launch a new series.

I need to find more time to read! What have you been reading lately?



  1. DELICIOUS AND SUSPICIOUS is a great read. I haven't gotten to read CLOSET CONFIDENTIAL or THE LONG QUICHE GOODBYE yet, but they both sounds interesting.

    Life does have a way of interfering with reading. LOL

    Thoughts in Progress

  2. I've read both "Closet Confidential" and "The Long Quiche Goodbye" and they were great books. I haven't read "Delicious and Suspicious" yet.

    Right now I'm almost finish with "Dead Docket" a legal thriller.

  3. I read Closet Confidential last week. I just adore Truffle and Sweet Marie :) Avery and Riley's books are patiently awaiting their turn in my TBR pile.

    Last night I finished Doctor in Petticoats by Mary Connealy.

  4. TLQG is in my TBR pile; D&S on the TBB list. I finished Tempted by a Warrior by Amanda Scott before bed last night, and have now started one that has been in the TBR pile a few years, Just Desserts by G.A. McKevett.

  5. I'm reading "The Surgeon" by Tess Gerritsen and it's freaking me out. I just finished "A Killer Plot" by Ellery Adams.

  6. I haven't gotten to Closet Confidential, but read the other two and highly enjoyed them both! At the moment I'm reading Night Myst by Yasmine Galenorn..gotta shake it up sometimes!

  7. And I just bought two of them! I'll have to check out Closet Confidential too. I always like these new release posts, thanks for the info!

  8. I'm always several books behind everyone because when I get interested in a new series, I go back to the first one and read them in order.

    Of course, my timing was perfect for Lucy V.

  9. I just finished reading Maggie's Kelly series (well still need to read #2 and #3 they didn't have those at the library)

  10. I am reading Carol Snow's Here Today Gone to Maui, & it's great so far. I also have Delicious & Suspicious & Long Quiche on my TBR shelf. Unfortunatley, I won't be getting much reading done as my niece is coming to stay with me for a week now. We usually try to work in at least 30 minutes of reading everyday she's here, so we'll have to see if it works out this time.
