Happy New Year!
I rang in the New Year with a rather dark mystery, Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore, in which a bookseller finds one of her regular browsers dead in the store. When she discovers a picture from her tenth birthday in his pocket, she begins to unravel his connection to the unsolved murders that turned her childhood upside down.
For a little something lighter, I went back to some old friends that I hadn’t visited in a very long time: Charlotte MacLeod’s Janet Wadman and Madoc Rhys. There’s just something so comfortable about a Charlotte MacLeod mystery, like reading vintage Elizabeth Peters, light and gently snarky. This week it’s been A Pint of Murder and the seasonally appropriate Murder Goes Mumming, although I think my favorite may still be the memorably titled The Wrong Rite.
