March is Women’s History Month, and I realized as I pulled this wrap-up together that ALL the books I read this month were written by women! And five of them featured strong women as their main character. (The classic detective Hercule Poirot is the lead detective in that sixth book.)
- A Lethal Lesson by Iona Whishaw. 5 Stairs. Just finished this one, review coming soon! One of my favorite series, I always look forward to reading the latest Lane Winslow mystery.
- When No One is Watching by Alyssa Cole. 4 Stairs. This was a 5 Stair read for me right up until the ending. Ms. Cole tackles some very important topics, puts things in perspective, and really makes you think. Great read.
- Finlay Donovan is Killing It by Elle Cosimarno. 4 Stairs. A funny book based on a wrong identity.
- Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie. 4 Stairs. This is a solid Poirot mystery. It feels a bit Sherlockian, as Poirot has a sidekick who is telling the story a la Watson.
- Watcher in the Woods by Kelley Armstrong. 3.5 Stairs. Really enjoyed the dynamic between the two sisters. This is the fourth in the series, and I felt a little lost just dropping in. The characters were good, I’d try the series from the beginning.
- We Keep the Dead Close by Becky Cooper. 3 Stairs. Overall I loved the true crime piece, but ultimately there was too much extra noise in this book that took away from the point which was: who was Jane Britton and what happened to her?
