This week it’s been something old and something new.
In the something old category (and I do mean very old): Edith Wharton’s The Age of Innocence. It’s a bit early for the new stand alone I’m writing, but still useful for background insight into my heroine’s childhood in the 1870s.
In the something new category: Robert Galbraith’s The Cuckoo’s Calling. Why did I wait so long to read this? I love British police procedurals (or private eye procedurals as the case may be) and this one reminds me in the best possible way of Kate Atkinson’s Case Histories. I’ve got number two in the series, The Silkworm, queued up next.
Also a big shout out to Daniella Bernett, whose first mystery novel, Lead Me into Danger, just came out. Congrats, Daniella! I can’t wait to read it.
