Thinner Books


And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman. A novella with a title and cover that makes it sound like a "feel good" novel. The author lives in Stockholm. I was in Stockholm once.

The Eastern Shore by Ward Just. Mid-Century newspaperman publishes a story that carries consequences through the rest of his career. I have no idea where Just lives. My trip to Stockholm was a one-nighter after taking the cruise ship from Finland.

Inherit the Bones by Emily Litteljohn. Did Litteljohn watch the Disney Robin Hood as a child and say, "Hey, that bear has our name!"

The Flame Bearer by Bernard Cornwell. More vikings in Britain.

To Brew or Not to Brew by Joyce Tremel.  Woman opens a new brew pub in Pittsburgh with sabotage on her brewery and a dead guy  in a brew vat. The novel also includes a cat, because this is a cozy mystery and all cozies require cats.

Tangled Up in Brew by Joyce Tremel. Same characters as above but with a dead food critic at a beer festival.
