Murder For Two by George Harmon Coxe (1943), a Flash Casey novel, 2nd in the series. Casey is a photographer for The Express newspaper, who gets involved in murder cases. Hard-boiled, with some humor, good writing. Love these books. Just before that, a collection of SF short stories by Poul Anderson.

I just finished Our House by Louise Candlish. I loved it! It is very well-written. It's about a woman who discovers that the home she shares with her two children and estranged husband has been sold to another couple. It certainly held my attention and is one of the best books I've read this year.

Just finished “Don’t You Ever: My Mother and Her Secret Son,” by Mary Carter Bishop, a former colleague at The Roanoke Times, a heart-wrenching memoir of her family’s mistreatment of her older, illegitimate brother in heavily stratified Virginia horse country.
Now I’m in Chapter 2 of “The Return of Captain John Emmett,” by Elizabeth Speller, a post-WWI detective story.

Matriarch by Anne Edwards. It is a biography of Queen Mary and the House of Windsor. Very detailed and interesting. Before that was reading one of Anne Perry's Victorian mysteries.

Just finished Killer Summer by Ridley Pearson. Set in Idaho - I only have 15 more states to go to read a mystery from each one. Almost finished my ABC list of authors and titles. Killer Summer is a little slick but engrossing to see how it all fits together.

The Missing Guests of the Magic Grove Hotel written by David Casarett.
The main character is a nurse ethicist.
The author is a palliative care physician so there is some depth to this cozy set in Thailand with a glimpse into Thai culture. You will want to
order Thai food when you are done!

Finished Tailspin by Sandra Brown and am now reading Island of the Mad by Laurie R. King.

I have just started Tomatoland by B. Eastabrook. It promises to be a history of how we have come to industrialize the tomato and thereby lost its flavor and appeal.
