"Snow White Must Die"

"Snow White Must Die"  by Nele Neuhaus

I read that this was an international best seller, so i was hooked.

from good reads:

"Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus isa tremendous new contemporary mystery series and huge international bestseller—with more than3.5 million copies in print!"  ...

 not being used to this type of book, i didn't "get into it" right away.  but stuck with it and glad i did.  

From another review, on good reads"

"With "Snow White Must Die" (Minotaur Books 2013), Nele Neuhaus shows the reading world that she can spin a tale steeped in small town politics, local culture, European geography, and that places the reader at the epicenter of a grisly mystery. Does that sound easy? It's not, proven by how many failed authors litter..."

"Raven Black"

"Raven Black"  by  Ann Cleeves

From Good Reads...
"Raven Black begins on New Year’s Eve with a lonely outcast named Magnus Tait, who stays home waiting for visitors who never come. But the next morning the body of a murdered teenage girl is discovered nearby, and suspicion falls on Magnus."

A thriller!  Yes, a thriller!  I enjoyed it.  I admit that the author kept me guessing...  Which for me, is a good read.   

It seemed to sort of slow down, in the middle.  But once the story "got wind in its sails" again, it whipped along.

If you enjoy a mystery, set in another part of the world, which lets the atmosphere-of-place seep into your bones, you'll enjoy this book.

"Knots And Crosses"

"Knots And Crosses"  by Ian Rankin

First book in his "Inspector Rebus" series

I recently read the last book, in this series.  Wanted to know how it all began.  So I got this First in the Series.  Liked it, as well.  Not light or hippity-happy-reading.  Gritty.  But I like "Rebus," and I've now enjoyed reading 2 books about him.  Want the next one...

From a "Good Reads" Review:

"Detective John Rebus: His city is being terrorized by a baffling series of murders...and he's tied to a maniac ................. Once John Rebus served in Britain's elite SAS. Now he's an Edinburgh cop who hides from his memories, misses promotions and ignores a series of crank letters. But as the ........................ killings mount and the tabloid headlines scream, Rebus........."

"Truly, Madly"

"Truly, Madly"  by Heather Webber

Yes, it's "chick-lit"!  Of course it is.  You can tell by the cover art.  :-)  But it's not irritatingly so.

From a Review:
"Lucy Valentine is ....   a little bit quirky protagonist who never got on my nerves. It's nice to have a main character who isn't totally self-absorbed, ditzy, neurotic, clumsy and just plain irritating, basically just about every female you run across in lighter fiction books these days. All the other characters added to the story seamlessly..."

It's the First in the "Lucy Valentine Series," and since I like this one, I have a hold on the next one.  I think that says as much about a book, as can be said.  :-)

Get it.  I'm sure you will have fun, with a light read.

Btw, I had the entire book cover pic up, when I noticed that...  There is a blurb, at the bottom of the pic of the book cover, by the author of the "Sookie Stackhouse" books.  I quickly cut off THAT line, at the bottom of the book cover.  I would NOT  READ or  RECOMMEND something, which I thought was like "Sookie Stackhouse" books.  Blahhhhhhhhhh...  You know I'm no prude, but I couldn't get interested in those books!  Blahhhhhhhh....

Mary Stewart

From a Review:
"There was one thing in Gilly Ramsey's lonely childhood that she enjoyed; the visits from her Godmother, Geillis, an extraordinary woman with unusual powers. When Geillis suddenly died, the adult Gilly inherited her charming little cottage, Thornyhold, and went to live there in the English countryside."...

I love books by Mary Stewart, but this one is not quite the same...  Which is fine....

From another Review:
"Lovely story ingredients for a Cinderella-style comfort read." 

And from another:
"I love reading about magic in a story when it’s so subtle that you're not sure if what you're seeing is really magic."

I enjoyed it.  You can read more about "Thornyhold" by clicking here, for Good Reads site.

"Standing In Another Man's Grave"

"Standing In Another Man's Grave"
Ian Rankin

From  a review:
"Rebus, retired but on loan from SCRU (a group of former detectives looking into cold cases) happens into an investigation of multiple MisPers, women gone missing along the A9 highway. Working partly within channels and mostly outside channels, Rebus is as bull-headed and irascible as usual as he digs deeper and finds links others have missed............."

And from another review:
".......he's still a cantankerous iconoclast, playing by his own rules and nobody else's, and relentless in searching out the truth, even if the result is not always satisfying."

I LOVE the old guy!!!!!!!!   

This is the 18th book in the "Inspector Rebus" Series....  I'm going back and starting with the FIRST!  -grin-
