SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

U.S. Kindle Sale: Mystery

Still Life - Louise Penny A Lesson in Secrets - Jacqueline Winspear

$1.99: Several (though not all) novels in the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear.  This is a good historical mystery series, set in the 20s and 30s, but always looking backwards at the war, and increasingly forwards to trouble ahead.




Still Life, and all of Louise Penny's other great mystery novels about Armand Gamache, which are all set in Quebec, and mostly in and around the fictional hamlet of Three Pines. 


I also spotted some other big names in Amazon's big mystery sale today, including Bernard Cornwell and Charles Todd.
