New Mysteries – Top Picks for August 2014

There are lots of good-looking mysteries hitting store shelves in August—just not enough time to read them all (at least for me). But here are a few that I am going to try to get my hands on as soon as they are released:


Queen Of Hearts book cover

Title:  Queen Of Hearts     Author:  Rhys Bowen

Release Date:  August 05, 2014     ISBN:  9780425260364

Why?  Bowen’s Royal Spyness mysteries have been loads of fun so far. Why wouldn’t I join Georgie on her latest escapade?



No Safe House book cover

Title:  No Safe House     Author:  Linwood Barclay 

Release Date:  August 05, 2014     ISBN:  9780451414205

 Why?  This is the follow-up to 2007’s No Time For Goodbye, which was fantastic. Cannot wait to see what Barclay has in store for these characters next.



Well Read, Then Dead book cover

Title:  Well Read, Then Dead   Author:  Terrie Farley Moran

Release Date:  August 05, 2014     ISBN:  9780425270288

 Why? This is the first book in a new series by an author I’ve never read. But I tend to gravitate towards mysteries that involve bookstores, and the cover looks so, well, cozy.



Those are my picks for August 2014.  What new mystery releases are you anticipating?
