Hello from the book tour whirlwind! To celebrate the end of the first week of book tour, I treated myself to Karen White’s upcoming The Christmas Spirits on Tradd Street, the latest in her popular Tradd Street series about a realtor who sees dead people.

Hello from book tour!  I’ve been having the best time roaming the country talking about The Summer Country (if I saw you on the road this week, hi!  And if you’re in Chicago, come see me tonight at 57th Street Books!  But I digress). The other great thing about book tour?  Tons of travel time…

Between college reunion, Book Expo, and preschool graduation, this week has been something of a fog (what’s my name again?), but I did manage to snatch a little reading time in the midst of the madness: — Jasmine Guillory’s The Wedding Date, a fun contemporary romance set in California; — and the latest Ruth Galloway…

You know how it is, when you recommend a book to a friend and then just have to re-read it yourself?  Well, that was me this week. My best friend was looking for something like Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London series or Laura Resnick’s Esther Diamond: smart and snarky and supernatural. And it belatedly occurred…

To whoever recommended Laura Purcell’s The Silent Companions companions to me, I don’t know whether to thank you or glower at you. (Freya, that was you, wasn’t it?) I gobbled up The Silent Companions in one night, which seemed like a good idea at the time, because the idea of waiting another day to find…

I’ve finally begun reading through some of the books that have been on my TBR forever. First it was Sujata Massey’s The Widows of Malabar Hill, a mystery set in 1920s Bombay. Now I’m reading Zen Cho’s Sorcerer to the Crown, which my college roommate sent me in a care package lo these many moons…

This week, in addition to seventeenth century diaries (so much unintentional humor!), I’ve finally begun a book I’m been meaning to read for ages, Sujata Massey’s The Widows of Malabar Hill, a mystery set in 1920s Bombay, featuring a female Parsi lawyer. The second book in the series, The Satapur Moonstone, comes out next month.…
