November 2020 Newsletter

While COVID and the flu come together, fatigue has started to take its toll on the attitude of the public. Now we see fewer people wearing masks, less social distancing, larger crowds, etc. It brings to mind the saying “buyer beware”—but now it’s public beware. We are most likely headed for another spike in cases. So, the advice is to still hunker down, read a good book, stay away from crowds—and when you go out—wear a mask. Thanksgiving is coming up, and we hope you stay safe and healthy!

Now, about good books—here is Oceanview! By now you should have read Fire and Vengeance by Robert McCaw. If so, you are probably aching for a trip to Hawaii—but only the good parts. If you haven’t read it, now is the time. McCaw is a master of setting, characters, and plot, and he puts them together in a way that keeps you glued to the pages.

Tie Die by Max Tomlinson takes you back to that unique time in San Francisco, the 1970s. Tomlinson combines time, setting, characters, and a plot that bounces from one country to another. This book has it all. Tomlinson is a force in the mystery genre to sign on with and read every one of his books.

And now for November, and the return of that very talented Irish author, Andrea Carter. Carter brings back that indomitable solicitor (lawyer) Benedicta (Ben) O’Keeffe. The Well of Ice is set in the lovely fictitious town of Glendara on the Inishowen Peninsula near Donegal. It is the Christmas season and decorations abound and the mood is joyous. But not all is cheery. The convicted murderer of Ben’s younger sister has been paroled and released from prison and shows up in town. Then a local waitress disappears, and foul play is suspected—and Ben puts herself in the middle of it all, much to the consternation of her on again-off again boyfriend and local constable Tom Malone. Another terrific Andrea Carter novel.

The paperback versions of two earlier books also came out this month:


Beyond the Bridge by Tom MacDonald


High Stakes by John F. Dobbyn


Just a peek into December—the return of award-winning author Matt Coyle with another Rick Cahill adventure, Blind Vigil. This book is unique as we get a look at Cahill trying to find the truth behind a crime while fighting a severe physical challenge that puts him at a significant disadvantage.

The books described above should keep you busy and safe, so enjoy!
