Of course my students have to work on tasks why reading The Houns of the Baskervilles - especially because it is the easy version of Black at. 💪

Maggie Hope is imprisoned on a remote Scottish island with other specially trained British agents who know too much. Then people start dying. Sounds fascinating and the setting is indeed fabulous, but this book was a dud for me. MacNeal basically announces at the start that she‘s going to rip off Ten Little Indians then proceeds to do so, with an uninspired ending. This is my 2nd try with this author and she‘s not for me.

4-21-24: My 10th finished book of 2024! This is a very slow book written in 1972, about a rabbi named David and his wife Miriam. When David decides he needs a break, he takes a 3 month leave of absence from his synagogue to travel to Israel with his wife and son. He becomes involved in a recent set of bombings while in Israel and befriends a foreign correspondent visiting his son. Back home, the congregation is wondering if David will return.

Lady detective Lily Adler is once again embroiled in a mystery when an old friend of her father‘s is found dead in his study. With old friends & new, Lily plans to unmask the killer & prove her father wrong.

I am really digging this series. The historical setting is really good, & I love the diversity of the cast. The mystery kept me guessing, & Lily‘s determination & cleverness have really won me over. Definitely putting a hold on 3! 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

April 21, 2024 I would give this book 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I did not feel like there was a surprise factor. One thing I will share is thag I am glad Maya did not get affected by Frank's hypnosis. Her mom saved her from dying. Apparently, Frank had learned how to do hypnosis from his dad so well that he caused his dad to die; just like Aubrey and Cristina. The good news is that Dan, Maya, and her mom are all safe and sound

April 21, 2024 Maya now knows why Frank said he built a cabin. The cabin was built in his mind. Made up! He IMAGINED himself in the cabin by the fire under his sleeping bag. He made it up bc he wanted to get away from his dad. At age ten, he and his mom felt endangered by his dad so he would make up this story and tell ppl. Maya is trying to figure out who Oren (Frank's dad) is. Oren is actually a certified hynotherapist. "Hyno" was shocked her

Pretty Boy Dead: A Novel | Joseph Hansen

The book opens with Steve Archer returning home in the morning having woken up in a strange bed, only to find the police at his apartment ready to arrest him for the murder of his boyfriend, Coy. The bulk of the book is a flashback telling how this all came about (which I did not realise for quite a while and was thus terribly confused), and the final 20-30 pages (out of 200) shows Steve looking for the real murderer to exonerate himself. ⬇

rwmg It's a 1960s attempt at gay noir but, quite apart from language and attitudes which would not pass muster nowadays, I found some characters so forgettable that I had no idea who they were when they re-appeared. I have good, albeit vague, memories from the early 1980s of the author's Dave Brandstetter series, which I might revisit some day but this stand-alone deserves its fate of languishing in obscurity despite several re-issues over the years. 12h

This book is slowwww, but not in a bad way. A bunch of academics take a trip to a chalet to do some sort of academic stuff (??) and once they are all together for a few days, secrets begin to come out. Very locked room mystery type book and you have to be very patient to get to the payoff at the end. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
