I am always looking for good mysteries to recommend to my readers. I have read the Girl in the Blue Coat. It is fabulous. I have lots of books by April Henry in the library, so I will be sure to get this new one. I have the book My Sister Rosa and think the plot sounds very intriguing.  Oh boy. I am excited about this list. Stay tuned for the winner which will be announced in April.

  1. My Sister Rosa is also on my reading list. I was so excited to read it until the Election happened. Maybe I can conjure my excitement for it again.

  2. I was a bit surprised that Last Seen Leaving didn't make this list. I was much more impressed with it than with the others I've read.
