Six Paperbacks, Elvis Mythology, Photos


One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean.  Romance with a "scoundrel". MacLean sounds like a pen name to me.  The author bio says MacLean "loves to hear from readers" so you should ask her if her name is real.

Lucky Stiff by Annelise Ryan.  Huh.  This is set in Wisconsin?  Must be why I bought it.  That and people like cozy mysteries in paperback.  The author bio says Ryan is a pen name.  I remember her now.  She is an emergency medicine RN.  Maybe up in Wausau.  I knew someone in college named Analisa.  I think she teaches up at UW- Stevens Point or Eau Claire

Words With Fiends by Ali Brandon.  Another cozy mystery.  I like the title.  Ali Brandon is also a pen name.  Her real name is Diane A.S. Stuckert.

Read It and Weep by Jenn McKinlay.  Cozy mystery with a librarian.  Ugh.  McKinlay lives in Scottsdale.  Not sure of pseudonym status.  Her website does not say if she still works as a librarian or where.  There is a nice gun shop in Scottsdale, Bear Arms.

Shadow Catcher by James R. Hannibal.  Military spy thriller with dudes looking to recover a B2 that crashed and sank in the Persian Gulf.  Hannibal sounds fake but looks to be real. 

The Mourning Hours by Paula Treick DeBoard.  Another Wisconsin setting. Woman returns to here small town and the disappearance of her best friend comes up again.  I think the cover looks a lot like a Crider cover.


Seven Deadlies by Gigi Levangie.  This had a great review.  A teenager in Beverly Hills is hired as a babysitter for other teenagers.

A Serpent's Tooth by Craig Johnson.  Because everyone loves Johnson's Walt Longmire series.

Bellman and Black by Diane Setterfield.  A kind of horror novel.  I think.  Setterfield livesin Oxford.  My parents visited Oxford a few years ago.  It seems like my dad was meeting someone at one of the universities but I do not recall for certain.

Murder on the Orient Express by Sandra Balzo.  Balzo's coffee mysteries check out real well here, over 80 times. 

Fame Thief by Timothy Hallinan.  Someone returned one of Hallinan's books and said she really enjoyed the novel.  I think I bought the first one because Crider told me to.

Lights in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian.  Is this supposed to be "important literary work"?  The author's name is uncommon and he lives in Vermont.  The plot sounds pretty neat. I should see if there is an audio version.


Ultimate Encyclopedia of Mythology by Arthur Cotterell and Rachel Storm.  A topic that always checks out and many of our titles are aging.
