TrishB @Cinfhen 😁 not sure if it‘s based on real events - but it is a stand alone. He writes a great series but this isn‘t part of the series! 2w
Cathythoughts A stand alone! Stacking 2w

#RedRoseSeptember

(Day 6 - #ChippyTea)

*I learn so much on Litsy, e.g., chippy tea—who knew—fish & chips for supper! Wow! I‘ve read way too many Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, & Mickey Spillane novels, because the first thing I think of when I hear the word chippy (and never mind the tea!) is a “cheap dame,” or a “promiscuous broad,” or a prostitute. Actual quote from the tagged book: “You oughta see the chippy he got up there.” Chippy ⬇️

gradcat ⬆️ (Cont.) tea is nicer somehow. ♥️ 3mo
arlenefinnigan My. Puts a whole new slant on the song 😂 3mo
Cinfhen #LiveAndLearn 😄it‘s happening ALL day on Litsy 🎉😜 3mo

squirrelbrain I love this! Of course you wouldn‘t have heard of a chippy tea... with bread and butter of course as well! 3mo
gradcat @arlenefinnigan I know, right? I was almost afraid of offending people by highlighting the sensibilities of the hard-boiled detective novelists of the first half of the 20th century...a bit dated, right? 🤣 3mo
gradcat @squirrelbrain I‘d certainly heard of a “chippy,” and I know what “tea” means to you Brits, but I had never heard that phrase, nor the song, I‘m embarrassed to admit. But I really do like the phrase: it sums it all up in a kind of cutely diminutive way, if you get my drift...♥️ 3mo
CarolynM Just to throw another curveball your way, a "chippie" is Australian slang for a carpenter. 3mo
gradcat @CarolynM I did know that, but I‘ve never heard an American use it that way...can you believe that one little (slang) word has so many (slang) meanings? 🤣♥️ 3mo

Another highly entertaining and exceedingly complex spy story from Chris Pavone, which sees Kate Moore, one of the main protagonists from his first novel, Expats, returning to espionage work.

Enjoying this instalment of the Harry Bosch chronicles as much as all of its predecessors. The coffee was great too, hence its rapid disappearance. #michaelconnelly #ninedragons #booksandcoffee #coffeeandbooks #crimefiction #americancrimefiction #harrybosch #fiction #currentlyreading

A Quiet Vendetta | R.J. Ellory

Longer than it needed to be but I loved the twist ending in this story about a mob hit man sharing his history with the FBI as they try to solve a kidnapping.

Stand alone from the author - I much prefer his Tom Thorne series which is excellent!

Cinfhen This sounds good!!! And it #featuresAholiday which would work for #booked2018 #stacked 😊 1y
erzascarletbookgasm I read this, not bad. 🙂 1y
TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm I think because I love his Tom Thorne novels so much this one didn‘t impress me as much! But it still stood up as a good thriller. 1y

A very well written and constructed crime novel set against a context of seething racism in rural East Texas. Very powerful.

No_One Whoa, did you make eggs benedict? It looks amazing! Book sounds good, too! 😁 2y
Eyejaybee It was delicious, but sadly not of my own making. I had sneaked out to the cafe around the corner for a leisurely breakfast. 2y
