Happy October, all!
It’s been a week of knitting spinster detectives for me, from Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple to Patricia Wentworth’s Miss Silver (you wonder– would the two be besties or suspect each other on sight?).
I started the week At Bertram’s Hotel, in which the illusion of Edwardian comfort masks a darker reality in London’s postwar world, fooling everyone except, of course, Miss Marple.
From there it was off to the seaside with Patricia Wentworth’s goodness only knows what number Miss Silver novel, Out of the Past, featuring a ruthless young man who learns the hard way that blackmail has consequences– fatal ones.
In keeping with the October chill and changing leaves and whatnot, I’ve got a Riley Sager novel lined up for this weekend for thrills and chills.
What have you been reading this week?
