Reading progress update: I've read 30 out of 75 pages.
Murder Off Miami - J.G. Links,Dennis Wheatley

I have no idea how  many pages are in this book, as there aren't any page numbers, but I'm up to the point of the blueprint floorplan of the boat.  I'm stopping here for the night because my copy is too fragile to read in bed.  So far, it's only just been determined that a murder has been committed, so there's not a lot of information to go on.  But my first recurring though it is (put behind spoiler tags in case Themis-Athena wants to avoid any influence on her own investigating): 

 

Nobody on that boat knows what Bolitho Blane looks like - are we sure he's the one that's dead, and not the secretary?

(spoiler show)

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
Glass Houses - Louise Penny

I don’t know if I liked this one or not. There were some plot holes, but I found it interesting. The way this book ends though one wonders how there can be another book in this series though.

Trial and Error (Arcturus Crime Classics) - Anthony Berkeley

wickedly entertaining, like a good Hitchcock film, where someone thinks he can get away with something because he has the "perfect" plan. I think perfect plans enjoy going bad.

Wonderment in Death (In Death #41.5) by J.D. Robb
Wonderment in Death (In Death Series) - J.D. Robb,Susan Ericksen

A twisted take on the Mad Hatter Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland. I wasn't planning on reading this installment, as the novellas in the In Death series don't move the series forward and are just quick snippets of the police work involved in the full length books. When I saw this was available on RB Digital (a service my library uses to borrow digital material), I borrowed and read so I could complete my In Death series reading one more time. 

 

Oh hey look - it's Dr. Louise and Charles! I thought they moved to Westchester the way the recent books don't bother to even to mention them. Nope, they are still alive and well, except they found their friend's dead body and the friend's sister's dead body. Louise called in a favor for Eve to be the lead murder cop on the case. Eve decided to dig deeper on the sister and was able to solve the case before anyone else was murdered. 

 

A quick but fun read.

Hospitality and Homicide (Tourist Trap #8) by Lynn Cahoon
Hospitality and Homicide (A Tourist Trap Mystery) - Lynn Cahoon

Going to be honest, I was very generous with this rating. This is a real fluff of a book, with the mystery barely getting any page time. This was a book about Jill's staffing issues at Coffee, Books and More, her first semester back in college, and her relationship with Gregg. The B plot line involving a missing boy and Esmeralda's attempts to find him were more interesting than what was going on in the rest of the book. It was a fast read and I was happy to be back in South Cove with the gang, but I needed less fluff and more mystery. 

 

Honestly, only read this installment of the series if you are a completionist like me.
