"White Nights"

"White Nights" by Ann Cleeves

This is the second book I've read, by Ann Cleeves.  The cover art seems to draw me in.  :-)  And she does write thrillers!  Mysteries!  And keeps me guessing!  

Set in the Shetland Islands off of Scotland, the books are very atmospheric and rather dark and stark and the like.  Which I've enjoyed......

In "White Nights," the main character got a wee bit irritatingly "emo" though.  He kept "second guessing" himself and "thinking too much," in regard to personal things.  It irritated me.  But!  Not enough, to put me off of finishing the book!  I HAD to know, how it all played out!!!!!!!!!!!! 

So, what more could you ask of a thriller, hu?  :-)

"A Room Full of Bones"

"A Room Full of Bones" by Elly Griffiths

The 4th book in the 'Ruth Galloway Mystery Series'...  I've been reading this "Ruth Galloway Mystery Series" in all sorts of hap-hazard fashion!  LOL.  Read the 2nd one, before the 1st.  Now read the 4th, after reading the 5th.

I love the whole series, and have been able to follow along, even with my random method.  No, I don't suggest that anyone else do it this way!  

Get "The Crossing Places."  And I bet you'll be intrigued by "Ruth," not your usual gorgeous heroine.  And doesn't that, sound like a great idea???

"Bayou Moon"

"Bayou Moon"  by C.L. Bevill

Loved this book and it kept me guessing, guessing, guessing.  Hometown girl (Mignon) returns to her hometown of LaValle, Louisiana to investigate what really happened to her mother, years ago.

You've got that intriguing title... set in the deep south...  an antebellum mansion... the "have's" and the "have not's"...  how they interact... years ago and to this day... murder... secrets... revenge... etc.  Oh, and add a ghostly touch too.

"Haunted Ground"

"Haunted Ground"
Erin Hart

From review on 'Good Reads'...
"A dazzling debut -- already an international publishing sensation -- combining forensics, history, archaeology, and suspense.
Introducing Erin Hart, who brings the beauty, poignancy, mystery, and romance of the Irish countryside to her richly nuanced first novel."

(To read more at "Good Reads", please click here......)

The beginning was slower going, even though I'm very interested, in the topic of body preservation, in peat bogs.  But the story progressed, I was hooked.  (There are actually 3 mysteries, contained in this book!)  I read the whole book, in 2 days.  Just *had* to keep reading!!! 

In "Good Reads Reviews", I found this bit, which I pass on to you....  How to pronounce a name used, in the book.  "how to pronounce Aiofe - that would be "EE-fah..."  I wish I had that info, before reading.  Because a character name like 'Aiofe' had me stumbling over it...  -sigh-  I agree with the reviewer...  Authors should give the pronunciation, of unique names.

There are 2 more books in this series, and my library system has both!  :-)

"The Next Wave"

"The Next Wave"  by Catherine Herridge

Written in 2011.  Sooooo...  So how can we say; "We didn't know it was coming!"???

From "Good Reads"...
"TERROR WALKS AMONG US. Born here, raised here, plotting here, the terrorists of al Qaeda 2.0 aim to kill Americans. And our government helps.

Who are the recruits for the next wave? They live next door."
Very interesting book, based on investigative reporting, which rings-even-truer, after the Boston Bombing Massacre.  Should any of us have been surprised, at that?  Hardly...!!!!!!!!!
Should everyone be more aware, of their surroundings?  Yes!!!  Your life may depend on it.
