I was hopeful for some more reading time in February, but it wasn’t meant to be. I did get through a few, so here are my February reads. Maybe you will find something you can enjoy!
The Deadly Mystery of the Missing Diamonds
By: T.E. Kinsey
I have read and enjoyed many of the books in Kinsey’s other series- The Lady Hardcastle Mysteries, so I was excited to read the first in the Dizzy Heights mystery series. The Dizzy Heights jazz band isn’t quite as fun as Lady Hardcastle, but I will probably pick up the second in the series- A Baffling Murder at the Midsummer Ball.
The Windsor Knot
By: SJ Bennett
Cozy mysteries are my favorite thing to read in the winter, when it’s rainy and cold. So, I continued in my theme with The Windsor Knot. In this mystery, it is the Queen herself who is solving the case when a visiting entertainer at Windsor Castle is murdered. The mystery was compelling and there was international intrigue, but having the Queen herself involved in the sleuthing is perhaps a bit too much.
Under The Whispering Door
By: TJ Klune
Apparently, my other theme this month was authors who use initials! However, Under the Whispering Door was a much different book. This is the story of Wallace. What makes it unusual is that it starts with Wallace’s death. He is escorted away from his funeral to the most unusual tea shop, which also happens to be a stop on the way to the afterlife. Here is where Wallace’s story really begins. While a tad too sentimental, the characters in this novel are wonderful and the tea shop creative.
