Recent mystery recommendations from Just Dessert members – February 2010

Just Desserts Logo 225Hey, mystery fans….looking for something good to read?

At the February 2010 Just Desserts meeting, after discussing our monthly “assigned” book, we did a round robin at the table, asking attendees to share what mysteries they’d been reading lately that they felt they could recommend. Here’s a list of what genre books were hot right now with this mystery-savvy crowd:

  • Aunt Dimity Down Under  and others in the Aunt Dimity series by Nancy Atherton
  • Whisper in the Blood and other early volumes in the Kate Shugak series * by Dana Stabenow
  • The Lee McKinney mystery series by Joanna Carl
  • Key Lime Pie and others in the Hannah Swensen mystery series by Joanne Fluke
  • The Harper Connelly mystery series by Charlaine Harris
  • Cold Country by Sue Henry
  • The Kevin Kerney mystery series * by Michael McGarrity
  • Fire and Ice on CD, a Joanna Brady/J.P. Beaumont crossover * by J.A. Jance
  • The Return of Solar Pons by August Derleth
  • Watchlist – a collaborative serial thriller by Jeffery Deaver and 21 other thriller writers
  • Talking Detective Fiction by P.D. James
  • Sacrifice by S.J. Bolton
  • What the Dead Know by Laura Lippman

And finally…one of our members said he’d read a review in the new issue of Cat Fancy magazine of Shades of Grey, the latest in the Dulcie Schwartz cat-themed mystery series by Clea Simon (not currently in the libraries’ collection)

So…what mysteries have you been reading lately that you’d recommend?
