Now that we are in April time to post about what I managed to read during the month of March, 5 books.
In no particular order first comes Whiskey From Small Glasses by Denzil Meyrick, this is the first in a series about DCI Daley. In the first book he has to investigate a body washed ashore in the west coast of Scotland. I really enjoyed this book and will definitely continue reading this series.
The Irresistible blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe by Mary Simses, this one I also really enjoyed and liked the front cover too. Set in Maine, Ellen Branford sets off to deliver a letter for her grandmother who has just died to a man she once loved. It was grandmother`s last dying wish that Ellen would do this and also has serious consequences for Ellen too.
A Dangerous Place by Jacqueline Winspear, Maisie Dobbs is back and after losing her husband and unborn child, she finds herself on a ship returning to England. At a whim decides to disembark in Gibraltar and while there stumbles across a dead body and stays to solve the crime. It is set in 1937 so the Spanish civil war is raging and plays a part in the murder. This book is in my challenge as part of it is set in Spain. I liked the character of Maisie Dobbs and will try to read more of this series too.
Freeze Frame by Peter May, it involves Enzo Macleod a leading forensics investigater, a Scots based in France. He made a promise to a dying man, to study the room in which the man died and left clues in said room which has been untouched since the murder. Enzo has to discover what these clues are and find the murderer. This is fourth book in this series, also very good! Another for my crime challenge!
My Biggest Lie by Luke A.M. this is the last book for March, set in London and Argentina it tells the tale of Liam Wilson is has a good job and a girlfriend and then one evening it all goes wrong. He goes off to Buenos Aires to try to get it back, but it is not so easy to do. It was okay, quite funny but hard to feel sorry for the guy though!
So links of interest!
Vanilla shortage means paying more for ice creams!
