~~ & ~~
As part of the Off the Wall Reading Challenge, I had planned on reading books from mystery series I’ve been neglecting, so I figured this would be an easy one to complete. After visiting Cozy-Mystery.net, I found out that I could include Georgette Heyer and . . .Victoria Holt?! I doubt I’ll read Holt for this challenge, but I’ll try for a Heyer mystery or two.
I’m doing Level 1 – Snoop (1-6). Here’s a tentative list:
- Donna Andrews – Murder with Puffins (Meg Langslow #2)
- Ashley Gardner – A Regimental Murder (Captain Lacey #2)
- Georgette Heyer – TBA
- Julie Hyzy – Buffalo West Wing (White House Chef #4)
- Julie Hyzy – Grace Under Pressure (Manor House #1)
- Victoria Thompson – Murder in Washington Square (Gaslight #4)
I will be happy if I manage to read these six books. If I get all six done early, I might try to get one or two more books from longer series (Thompson and Andrews). Also, the second Manor House Mystery series is due out in June*, and I’d like to stay current with at least one or two series.
(*= Ack! It’s due the same day as several of my favorite paranormal and urban fantasy series’ books come out! Five books, released on the same day! And that’s not counting THE most anticipated book for me, coming out the week before!)research
