Murderous May wrap up

May was Murder and Mayhem Month over on my LibraryThing group. I didn't do too badly, managing to complete 11. Three were set in Maine -- lots of fun! Three were part of the Dr. Siri Paiboun series by Colin Cotterill, and three others were part of the Inspector Montalbano series by Andrea Camilleri. The newest one "Beneath the Shadows" by Sara Foster was a definite winner and I'll have a review posted on that one by the end of the's due for publication on June 4th. Then there was the fantasy/mystery "Miss Peregrine's Home...." that was very different from the rest. Here's my complete list for the month.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Nail Biter by Sarah Graves
Murder on the Rocks by Karen MacInerney
Matinicus, An Island Mystery by Darcy Scott
Disco for the Departed by Colin Cotterill
Love Songs from a shallow Grave by Colin Cotterill
The Merry Misogynist by Colin Cotterill
The Potter's Field by Andrea Camilleri
Wings of the Sphinx by Andrea Camilleri
 Beneath the Shadows by Sara Foster

And TA DAH!!!!  Last by not least, I just finished the very best -- an ARC of Louise Penny's newest "The Beautiful Mystery".  It is definitely a beautiful book, an extraordinary mystery.  I think it's her best yet, and I'll be doing a full review in the next 10 days.  It was a fabulous way to close out Murder and Mayhem May.

Now lest you worry that I won't be giving you anymore hints about good mysteries, here's what's in store on my reading list for June:
Charles Todd's newest Bess Crawford mystery "An Unmarked Grave" is being featured here June 18th for the TLC blog tour.
Jacqueline Winspear's latest Maisie Dobbs mystery "Elegy for Eddie"  is waiting not too patiently.
Maggie Sefton's "Deadly Politics" is in the Net Galley queue.

That certainly should get me started.  I love mysteries, so be sure to stay tuned for even more.
