Because I purchased a lot of books in the month of February, I decided to take it slow in March. Truth be told, it was agonizing. I only purchased three novels, and tried my absolute best to pace myself and take it slow.
On the much brighter side, that book drought encouraged me to binge read this month! And so, I've decided to share the four novels I picked up on my last trip to the bookstore!
1. Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski
When the body of teenager Tom Jeffries is found, deputies rule it a misadventure. However, not everyone is convinced. The truth of what really happened on that dreaded night is locked in the memories of a close-knit group of friends, the people who were with Tom that night. Twenty years later, notorious investigative journalist Scott King conducts six interviews in the hopes of uncovering the shocking events and truths of that tragic night.
2. Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple #1) by Agatha Christie
When Colonel Protheroe is found shot through the head, Miss Marple finds herself on her first case. Despite lack of testimonies and leads, everyone surrounding the establishment seems to have a reason to want the Colonel dead. Can Miss Marple uncover the identity of the mysterious killer without help from the local police?
3. Hercule Poirot's Christmas (Hercule Poirot #20) by Agatha Christie
It's Christmas Eve, and the Lee family is filled with holiday cheer. Suddenly, there's a deafening crash followed by a piercing scream. Upstairs, Simeon Lee lies dead in a pool of blood, a deep cut across his neck. When Hercule Poirot offers his services, he comes to realize the situation is much worse than he suspected.
4. The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
The Contis seem to have it all: a loving relationship, a lovely home, and a beautiful baby. But one night, when they attend a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. When Detective Rasbach notices that the panicked couple is hiding something, suspicion falls on the parents. The couple soon discovers that each has been keeping secrets. Will their lies get in the way of solving an unsettling case?
I also picked up The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Appointment with Death from my local library. If interested in the synopses and reviews of these two library picks, check out "AZE Reviews A Classic" located in the April archive.
