I am currently reading Don’t Cry Over Killed Milk by Stephen Kaminski
I’ve not long started this one but it’s grabbed my attention, and who can’t fall in love with the play on words?
The latest offering in the Damon Lassard Dabbling Detective Mystery series from the winner of the 2012 Reader Views Literary Award (Mid-Atlantic region).
Jeremiah Milk lived a life filled with emotional extremes. Amniotic band syndrome—a congenital condition—left his fingers and toes malformed. Ridiculed as a child, he became an adolescent hermit. As an adult, Jeremiah’s wounds healed when he landed a position as a park ranger and married a woman who loved him despite his physical appearance. But fate ripped his life to shreds when his wife and infant son died on the same night in separate calamities. Shortly thereafter, the tides turned once more as an act of Jeremiah’s ostensible benevolence translates into a financial boon. The book on Jeremiah’s life closes without mercy when he’s found murdered at Tripping Falls State Park.
Damon Lassard—Hollydale’s loveable civic leader, amateur sleuth, and Jeremiah’s neighbor—springs into action. He’s obstructed by a prickly lieutenant, but wriggles information unknown to the police from a colorful bevy of suspects. Aided by his best friend Rebecca and his reluctant ally Detective Gerry Sloman, Damon engineers a deep dive into Jeremiah’s past to solve the crime. Along the way, Damon strengthens his relationship with the breathtaking Bethany Krims, cracks a local horticultural mystery, and tries in vain to tame his wickedly sarcastic mother.
I’ve just finished Under a Silent Moon by Elizabeth Haynes
I managed more than a few minutes reading time and got into it for the ending which was seriously scary. I’d love to say my review will be up later but still have books from my holiday to review so may be a few days yet. Click on the cover to go to Goodreads.
My next read is going to be Silent Witnesses by Nigel McCrery
This arrived while I was away and after Fiction Fan’s review I can’t wait to read all about the history of forensics
