#amreading - Dastardly Deeds, Ilsa Evans

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I've been wading around on the darker side for a while now, and this is very light, cosy stuff with a humorous side which kind of appealed over the weekend.

From the Blurb:

It was supposed to be the holiday of a lifetime ...

When Nell Forrest's life hits a speed bump (which is most definitely not a midlife crisis) a cruise around the Mediterranean seems like just the ticket.

Giveaway - Signs of Murder, Jean Bedford

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

When I was but a girl, my grandmother and I were a tad addicted to Ngaio Marsh, Agatha Christie and Dorothy L Sayers books and we read them all although often lamenting the lack of local crime books with local settings. How excited were we both to discover in the late 80's / early 90's that there were local women writing really good crime fiction. Jean Bedford was one of those discoveries and we hoovered up the Anna Southwood books with relish - often reading the same book at the same time so we could share long telephone calls about them.

Am Reading - Someone Else's Skin, Sarah Hilary

Author Name: 

From earlier in this week - something I've wanted to read for a while, so one of my "just because" reads for this month.

From the Blurb:

Called to a woman's refuge to take a routine witness statement, DI Marnie Rome instead walks in on an attempted murder.

Trying to uncover the truth from layers of secrets, Marnie finds herself confronting her own demons.  Because she, of all people, knows that it can be those closest to us we should fear the most . . .
