Another Largre Print Bonanza


Murder in the Afternoon by Frances Brody. The cove and subtitle, A Kate Shakleton Mystery, scream "cozy mystery". Wait a minute. Does a cozy mystery ever scream out loud? Seems like it would whisper. Or gossip.

Woman With A Gun by Phillip Margolin.  For the past few years book covers with a photograph of a beach and a woman model shot from behind were all the rage. But, this one is in black-and-white and the model, wearing a wedding dress, is holding a revolver behind her back. The revolver looks like a Ruger.

The Big Finish by James W. Hall.This cover has the camera positioned a few inches over a road tarmac, colored all in red, and a man's silhouette down road.

Handsome Man's De Luxe Cafe by Alexander McCall Smith. I'm not sure what you call this art style. Folk?

Scorched Eggs by Laura Childs. This cover is not my style.  The book doesn't look like my style either, but I am very intrigued when the dust cover says a character is getting her hair done at "Root 66". Root 66? That's fantastic.

Large Print

Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult.  Every time a cash register bell rings Picoult buys another yacht. Seriously though, does Picoult have a yacht. She should look into that. She lives in Hanover, New Hampshire, and Google maps says that is a two hour drive.

Flesh and Blood by Patricia Cornwell. 

Revival by Stephen King.

Change of Heart by Jude Deveraux.
