Murder Wears Mittens
Murder Wears Mittens - Sally Goldenbaum Murder Wears Mittens - Sally Goldenbaum

I read some of the other books from this series years ago and just came back with this book and it took me a while to get back to familiar with the series to be able to follow the story. Part of the problem was Hannah Swenson (found in the Murder She Baked series). Also, the story is based around knitters (see Maggie Sefton and Betty Hechtman that I have been reading recently). I think I will need to read the older books and then reread this book. 

 

This book starts with a young boy using someone else's washer and dryer to wash and dry his sister's uniform so that she can wear it to school. The woman whose load he hijacked finds the uniform and knows exactly where she goes to school and goes to the priest to find out who they are so she can return the uniform. This puts things in motion, the missing mother, found injured and with amnesia, the woman she went to visit, dead. As the women work to find out who would murder the older woman, they learn some things about the woman and the little family. 

 

Once, I got past the confusion it was a good story and I wanted to find out who did it and why.

Murder in Mesopotamia
Murder in Mesopotamia - Agatha Christie

Murder in Mesopotamia isn´t one of my favorite Christie´s. And it isn´t because the crime plot was a bad one, quite the contrary. I found the crime and the solution to be as equally as good as some of her other books.

 

It´s because the characters are incredibly bland and boring and the narrator of the story, Amy Leatheran, is the worst of them all. I got so annoyed by her mentioning that Richard Carey is beautiful, even though he apparently looks like the grim reaper based on her description of him. And Poirot hasn´t been as charming as he usually is.

 

Hastings can be a bit dense sometimes, but I really missed him this time around.

MURDER, SHE KNIT by Peggy Ehrhart
Murder, She Knit - Peggy Ehrhart
Cozy mystery where Pamela tries to find where the kitten she's been feeding is hiding but finds a body in her bushes.  She and the victim have a past but so do many others in the town. 
 
I enjoyed this story.  I liked the characters.  I also enjoyed the small-town gossip and mind set.  The knitting group are older women whose children are raised.  They get together weekly to knit.  There is also Roland whose doctor told him to take up knitting as a way to reduce stress.  Not so sure if it has or has only added to the stress in his life.  There is good world building here as this sets up the series. 
 
The story was good but I missed the clues to help solve the mystery.  They hinted at the back of my mind but never came together until the murderer was identified and the story told.  I am looking forward to the next mystery in this series.

REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - Inspired By Murder by Audrey J. Cole
Inspired by Murder - Audrey J. Cole

To write the perfect story, he needs to commit the perfect crime.

Disillusioned with his day job, psychiatrist Eric Leroy yearns to fulfill his true destiny of becoming a New York Times bestselling author. But there is one thing he lacks to create an enthralling murder mystery: real-life inspiration.

The nation is shocked when a famous Seattle resident and his wife are found dead in their upscale Madison Park neighborhood. It looks like murder-suicide, but Detective Blake Stephenson isn’t convinced. Stephenson begins to suspect the doctor when more people connected to Dr. Leroy turn up dead.

As Stephenson investigates Dr. Leroy, he uncovers a dark, twisted past filled with secrets. Meanwhile, the headlines are reeling with a killer on the loose in Seattle. As the death toll rises, Stephenson struggles to find enough evidence to arrest the doctor—before he kills again.

Murder in Mesopotamia - Agatha Christie

"That´s right. And be sure and shout it. Arabs don´t understand anything said in an ordinary "English" voice."

 

The racism in this book is staggering.
