As mentioned in my con summary, there were the book bag books, and the books bought in the book room, all of which added up, as you see here. Without further ado…
The books in the LCC Book Bag:
A pretty nice selection, and we didn’t have many duplicates between our two bags.
The Accidental Alchemist by Gigi Pandian, [Midnight Ink 2015 paperback] – amateur sleuth.
House of Echoes by Brendan Duffy [Ballantine Books 2015, ARC] – suspense.
The Gift of Darkness by V.M.Giambanco [Quercus 2014 hardcover] – thriller.
Sleight of Hand by Phillip Margolin [Harper Fiction 2013 mass market paperback] – suspense.
Mother’s Day Out by Karen MacInerney [Thomas & Mercer 2014 trade paper] – cozyish P.I. novel
Wrongful Death by L.J. Sellers [Thomas & Mercer 2015 trade paper] – police procedural
Woman With A Gun by Phillip Margolin [Harper Fiction 2014 hardcover] – suspense
Rock Paper Tiger by Lisa Brackmann [Soho Crime 2010 trade paper] – thriller (they must have put one of these in every bag, because there was always a large stack of them on the book share table)
Downtown Strut by Ed Ifklovic [Poisoned Pen Press 2013 hardcover] – amateur detective in 1927
Deadly Echoes by Philip Donlay [Oceanview 2014 hardcover] – eco-thriller
Her Boyfriend’s Bones by Jeanne Matthews [Poisoned Pen Press 2013 trade paper] – amateur detective, set in Greece.
Eddie & Sunny by Stacey Cochran [Down & Out Books 2015 paperback] – noir. Hard luck couple with kid, living in car, doom impends. Went immediately to BookSwap.
The Books We Bought:
We only bought three books. It would have been easy to buy more, but it’s also easy to get a lot of things from the library, used book stores, BookSwap and such places, all cheaper. Yet there is that pull, see an author on a panel, talking about his or her book and if it sounds interesting… well, you know.
A Cold and Broken Hallelujah by Tyler Dilts [Thomas & Mercer 2014 trade paper] – police procedural. Bought by Barbara after seeing the author on a panel.
The Lion, The Lamb, The Hunted by Andrew Kaufman [Thomas & Mercer 2013 trade paper] – police kidnapping cold case thriller. Bought by Barbara after a reference to it on a panel.
Silver Totem of Shame by R.J. Harlick [ Dandurn 2014 trade paper] – amateur detective. Sixth in Meg Harris series by this Canadian author. I like northwest mysteries when well done and this was recommended. If I like it I’ll go back to the beginning of the series.
And that’s it, not counting the several library books waiting for us to pick them up and the ones already here partly read. Oh yes, plenty of reading going on here.
