  • Like a charcuterie board for readers' appetites

    I love these sampler editions issued by Minotaur Books. They’re like a charcuterie board for readers' appetites. You get a short but action-packed peak into novels that will be released in the not-too-distant future. This issue has eight flavors to choose from and promises something for almost any palette. There’s my favorite category, mystery & thrillers: Nora Murphy’s “The Favor”, where we meet Leah, a well-skilled alcoholic, who sees someone that reminds her of herself nine months previous, and decides to step in and “help”. “The Outside” by Ragnar Jonasson, four friends are stranded in a vicious snowstorm; I love these books that take me to new continents. “The Things We Do in the Dark” by Jennifer Hillier- I LOVED “Little Secrets” and “Jar of Hearts”, so this is definitely on my must-read list. And “The Blame Game”, by Sandie Jones, is about a psychologist who may be falling victim to the very people she’s trying to help. There are two historical fictions: Mark Pryor’s “Die Around Sundown”, which takes place in Paris and is perfect for any WWII fan, and Katharine Schellman’s “Last Call at the Nightingale”, an eloquent mystery from the days (or should I say nights) of the speakeasy. The military and action aficionados will enjoy “The Gatekeeper”, a debut novel by Dez Limerick about a mercenary, now retired, who throws a big wrench in what was supposed to be an easy hit at a hotel he’s plinking cords at. Last but not least there’s “A Rip Through Time” by Kelley Armstrong, for those lovers of “The Outlander”, about a homicide detective that wakes up in the wrong era. These sampler books are a great way to help you decide what to add to your “to-read” list. The snippets are so good, though, you’ll end up adding them all. Sincere thanks to St. Martin’s Press- Minotaur for an ARC in exchange for my honest review. The publishing date is March 8, 2022.

    Thanks for your feedback!
