— But you will be ready to say, what was your hope in doing this? — What did you look forward to? — To any thing, every thing — to time, chance, circumstances, slow effects, sudden bursts, perserverance and weariness ... Every possibility of good was before me, and the first of blessings secured ... — from Emma, by Jane Austen (1775-1817)

Anticipation {mysterious edition} ...

I've already put these books on my library reserve list, if only to get a little ahead of the line.  Are there other mysteries (or other books of any kind) coming soon that you're looking forward to?


“Hearts are broken,” Lillian Dyson carefully underlined in a book. “Sweet relationships are dead.” {August 30}.



Although Monk and his fearless wife, Hester, would prefer to pin a medal on Parfitt’s killer, duty leads them in another direction—to an unresolved crime from the past, to blackmail and more murder, and to a deadly confrontation with some of the empire’s most respected men. {August 9}.



...one of the most beloved mystery writers of the twentieth century, while doing research for a new novel based on a horrific case of multiple child murder in 1903 London, is drawn into a chillingly related hunt for a sadistic, present-day killer {August 9}.

Have you read Deborah Crombie's mysteries? There is a new one coming out this fall, in the UK - but not til February 2012 in the US. I don't know if I'll be able to resist getting from the UK.

It was because of you that I first read an Inspector Ganache novel. I really liked him, and I look forward to reading more of Louise Penny's books. Thanks for introducing her to me.

Thank you for reminding me that I have fallen behind with Louise Penny's books, and that I really must catch up.

Anne Perry is still on my "one day" list and I'm not drawn to Nicola Upson at the moment. I didn't like the second book and the more I think about the idea of using a real author as a fictional detective the less I like it.

I'm called towards the golden age at the moment, but I will definitely be making an exception for L C Tyler's next book.

I hadn't realized Louise Penny had a new mystery coming out; thanks so much for mentioning it.

Thank you for visiting!
