Camille Minichino and Ann Parker hit the road south this coming week with two events in the LA area:
Ann Parker's latest Silver Rush mystery, WHAT GOLD BUYS, has a slew of enthusiastic reviews up and around:
- From B&N Reads (Ann Parker’s Silver Lies Series Is The Best Historical Fiction You Haven’t Read Yet): "If you haven’t heard of Ms. Parker or her work, now’s the time to ante up and go all in."
- From BookLoons (review by Mary Ann Smyth): "The boomtown of Leadville is described so well, it is possible to envision slogging through the mud and ice and snow of the streets oneself."
- From DorothyL/It is purely my opinion (review by L.J. Roberts): "Stories that are more than one note are so much more interesting, and Parker has given us a full symphony."
In other news, Ellen Kirschman notes she is going to the dentist and watching the presidential debate.
Given that this coming week's theme is all about pets, Priscilla Royal reports that the Dynamic Duo passed their "wellness visits" with flying colors and are dressing up as themselves for Hallowe'en.
Pets in Fiction
Yes, it's time for us to turn our weekly attention to "pets in fiction," whether four- (or two- or no-) legged.
If you like animal companions in your mystery reading, one place to check out is the "Pet Mysteries" page on the Stop! You're Killing Me! mystery readers site.
