Darling Girls by Sally Hepworth


For some reason, I always suspect that Hepworth books are going to be relatively lame, and then they always end up impressing me with clever plots.

Invisible Woman by Katia Lief



Novels are allowed a max total of one extraordinary circumstance and/or coincidence. This otherwise promising book well exceeded that limit.

Upcountry by Chin-Sun Lee


 A decent book that tried to tackle a lot of interesting issues but just didn't sparkle.

Cold to the Touch by Kerri Hakoda


  On the one hand, this is a solid mystery. On the other hand, it doesn't really distinguish itself from all of the other solid mysteries.

The Murder Rule by Dervla McTiernan


 Mostly good, but the ending was over the top.

End of Story by A. J. Finn


 Very clever, very well written.

The Murder of Mr. Ma by John Shen Yen Nee and SJ Rozan


 This was so much fun: the same vibe as classic mystery novels, with an interesting cultural twist. Recommended.
