Listening to Roger Ackroyd
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - Agatha Christie

This is one of my Top Ten Christie mysteries. This wasn't (even close to) the first time I read it, so I know the big reveal at the end. Nonetheless, it remains compelling even with the knowledge of the murderer, which I will not spoil here.

I listened to the book this time. If there is one tiny quibble that I have is that it was narrated by Hugh Fraser, who does a bang-up job, but I associate him so strongly with the character of Hastings that, this book being in the first person narrated by Dr. Shepherd, I would occasionally become a bit disoriented with the voice not matching the identity of the narrator. It's not a big thing, and someone not as wholly obsessed with all things Agatha might not even notice!

"It is easy to feel drawn to each character in the book and you begin to want to follow along with Sam and her self discovery. . . "

 

"This was a fun and suspenseful read! Being familiar with the northeast, I found the descriptions of the woodlands and environment spot on, in fact, it made me want to go for a hike in mid read; too bad it was -10 degrees.

Book description:

A role-playing game staged in the remote woods of the North East Kingdom, turns into a deadly pastime when a killer uses the game as a means to seize his victims.

 

A dead body is discovered in the woods by Samantha Tremblay, a Forest Ranger who works at Maidstone Lake. The locals call her Sam. She swears to bring the killer to justice for the victim but soon finds herself in over her head, as she works alongside New Hampshire Trooper Zachary Gerard assigned to the case. More bodies turn up and motivation to solve the crimes mount.

 

Old secrets get in Sam’s way, and she isolates herself from others. Haunted by unanswered questions about the past, she lives with cracked relationships—between herself and her father—her friends. Mourning her mother, Samantha feels a pull toward her heritage, the Abenaki tribe, but is afraid to open that doorway. Could the tribe help discover the answers to her quest for the truth?

 

Pulled emotionally from all directions, Samantha Tremblay searches for answers to find a killer, and to discover herself.

MERRY MURDER by C. S. McDonald
Merry Murder: A Fiona Quinn Mystery (Vol... Merry Murder: A Fiona Quinn Mystery (Volume 2) - C.S. McDonald

Set at Christmas, Fiona's Uncle Wilbur, who plays Santa at the mall, is murdered.  Why?

 

I enjoyed this book more than the first one in the series.  I had a better sense of the characters and liked the dynamics between Fiona and Nathan.  I liked Uncle Wilbur.  The short time he was in the book, I could see him as Santa.  I also enjoyed her kindergarten class, especially Lincoln.  Don't know if I wanted him around much but he is the kid who enjoys ruining things for others.  I figured out the why but not the who until the end when it was going down.  The mystery was good and made sense.  There was humor in it.  It was fun and I look forward to more Fiona.

What Matters Most
What Matters Most - Cynthia Victor

This book almost lost me at first. I was a little put off by some stuff in the beginning and I almost stopped reading it. It got better though and I had to know how it ended. I felt the ending was rushed compared to the rest of the book and could have been better. Still, I´m glad I finally read this book that has been on my bookshelf for over a decade. 


Lainey has been best friends with Farrell since grade school and she loves her kids, Riley and Tim. At a Christmas party at their house she admires the life her friend has. She finally gets a job offer to design her own cartoon character and her career is about to take off when she gets a call that rocks her world. Her friend and her husband have died in a freak accident and Lainey had agreed to be their guardian if anything happened to them. She never thought anything would really happen and realized she had been too quick to agree to just drop her life and take care of her friend´s children in their own home. She does love the kids though and she did her best to juggle her job and take care of them while they are going through the trauma of losing both parents but she notices some things that bother her. She starts to wonder if it was really an accident that took her friend´s life.
