Tuesday Potpourri

TUESDAY POTPOURRI: A BOOKISH DAY…

When I am not in my office hunkered down over my laptop (Louisa May), I am curled up on the sofa (above).  Recently I rearranged the sofa table decor…and switched out a miniature horse for the Swan-with-Boyd’s Bear in the center.

The horse ended up on the hall tree (below) with some dolls….I like photographing the hall tree with its mirror images of the bookshelf and entertainment center…

Since today is Tuesday, I am eager to find out what new books have been released.  I’ve already discovered one, which I downloaded earlier:

 

 

Even If It Kills Her, by Kate White (A Bailey Weggins Mystery)

Description:  Bailey Weggins’ great new friend in college, Jillian Lowe, had everything going for her. Pretty, popular, and whip-smart, she lit up any room that she walked into. All of that dramatically changed during her sophomore year, when a neighbor became unhinged and murdered her family. Jillian immediately left school, and ever since, Bailey has felt guilty for not staying in closer contact and being a greater support to her friend.

Now, sixteen years later, Bailey is shocked to see Jillian at her book event, and even more stunned when her still-gorgeous friend approaches her with a case. The man accused of murdering her family is on the brink of being cleared of the crime through new DNA evidence. With the real killer walking free, Jillian is desperate for Bailey’s help to identify him and allow her the closure she yearns for.

As the two women return to Jillian’s childhood town to investigate, it doesn’t take long for their sleuthing to cause shock waves. Someone starts watching their every move. As they uncover deeply-guarded secrets, so shocking that they make Jillian rethink her entire relationship to her family, Bailey and Jillian find themselves in great peril. They must decide just how much they’re willing to risk to finally discover the truth about the Lowe family’s murder.

While waiting to discover what other books have been released, I am enjoying Y is for Yesterday, by Sue Grafton.

Our sleuthing MC, Kinsey Millhone, is investigating a sex tape that was part of a murder from 1979.  The perpetrator has just been released from prison (in 1989) and the family has received a copy of the disturbing tape…and a ransom demand.

The story goes back and forth in time…and like most of Kinsey’s investigations, she is also tracking other perpetrators, like the man who tried to kill her the year before.

I am savoring this story, because I like how we get to follow Kinsey in her pursuits, and enjoy little tidbits she drops about her daily life and activities…like her fondness for peanut butter and pickle sandwiches and the strange menu she likes to avoid at Rosie’s diner down the street.
