« A Suitable Boy: Part 10 | Main | Sept Prompt: Ready for New Beginnings »



Oh goodness I hope your A/C is back. I cannot imagine living without A/C here in Texas. We've been watching crime shows set in Iceland, Norway and Poland. All to hopefully see some snowy landscape. Haha... I've been on a bit of a break from thrillers lately. I enjoy them but I think I just read too many and need a change of pace. Are you joining R.I.P. I'm definitely in the mood for some ghostly/scary type stories. Hope you have a great week ahead!


If you are looking for a mystery-type sultry read, I will recommend 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘢𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘚𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘳𝘦, the first in the Harriet Gordon mysteries. Harriet has moved to Singapore to help her brother run his boys' school, hiding an uncomfortable secret. She decides to make extra money by taking in typing from clients. Her first client is murdered. A.M. Stuart describes the heat of Singapore so well I felt like I was there.


I'm very bad at trying to match or counterbalance the weather in the book with the weather in real life. That said, I read Coffin Road (set in rainy, cold Northern scotland) during a heat wave and it was weird. I hope that your A/C is repaired by now!


How unfortunate about your A/C. But perhaps you'll be able to replace it so that it's ready to go for the later days in September that are going to be beastlier than we'd like to think.

Regardless of what happens with Kinsey's romantic subplot, I like that she is content with her own company, not always on the hunt/prowl. How interesting, too, that there was a cold murder case...I was wondering if that would come up in the series!
