Murder on the Red River | Marcie R Rendon
post image
Mehso-so

Read this for my book club that me and another woman started at the library. This was her pick. It‘s suppose to be a mystery book club and this was lacking in mystery. It wasn‘t bad but wasn‘t amazing. I do think I‘d read the second one. I just hope the book club does well I want it to last so badly.

Read this for my book club. I don‘t think I was as enthralled with this as everyone else was. But I did enjoy it. Just not enough mystery for a mystery book club if you ask me.
And behind it is next months pick, wonder what it is 😉

Read this for my book club. It was alright but it was a slow burn and took quite awhile for the murder mystery part of it.

I‘ve had this on my tbr for a minute. I honesty grabbed it because I was curious after the drama. Then I found a book club that was going to read this but it was in like a day and a half and I quickly powered thru this. The book club was tonight and it was nice. I‘ll go again next time.

Did a young Newark socialite poison the #puddings she fed her little brother? Why did a healthy couple drop dead in their Brooklyn apartment? What‘s so bad about wood alcohol anyway? This macabre and disturbing but fascinating book explores such questions and more! Also, an administration that favors #politics over #science ... because surely that sort of thing doesn‘t happen these days. More in comments.

Susanita Here‘s another look at Prohibition, which figures prominently in the book: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/on-leadership/wp/2018/01/01/episode-14-of-th... 2y

The Stonecutter: A Novel | Camilla Lckberg
post image

Tonight was the long-awaited first meeting of the library's #mysterybookclub after the summer hiatus. We discussed the tagged book, and the general consensus was that the core mystery part was good but there was entirely too much happening on the periphery for no good reason. While at the library, I checked out something for #litsyatoz in addition to the #bookclub selection for October.

I liked this book but didn't love it (lukewarm pick). The mystery is compelling, but many of the characters are OTT mean and nasty. There's also the dreaded "she heard screaming--it was her own" trope. Timeline jumps added to the story, but some of the subplot threads seemed to be there just so they could be picked up later in the series. While I did like the main characters, I'm content to leave the rest unread. #mysterybookclub #litsyatoz (L)
