The comparison to Trick or Treat is a bit bittersweet.

I took two tote bags, one of which was giant, and came back with a lovely haul of 26 books:

Historicals:

The Ambitious Stepmother- Fidelis Morgan (rec’d by Maggie, the nice redheaded owner)

The Rival Queens- Fidelis Morgan

The Intelligencer- Leslie Silbert

A Pinch of Snuff- Reginald Hill (another Maggie rec)

Except the Dying- Maureen Jennings

The Immaculate Deception- Iain Pears

The Given Day- Dennis Lehane

Powder Monkey- Paul Dowell (YA)

The Privilege of the Sword- Ellen Kushner

The Forgery of Venus- Michael Gruber

The Ship of Fools- Gregory Normton

The Quality of Mercy- Faye Kellerman (via Maggie)

Contemporary Mysteries:

Killing the Lawyers- Reginald Hill (Maggie rec’d the author)

The Death of and Irish Lover- Bartholomew Gill (via Maggie)

Rough Treatment- John Harvey (Maggie was scandalized I hadn’t heard of him)

Off Minor- John Harvey

The Poet- Michael Connelly. I’ve never read him.

Road Rage- Ruth Rendell

13 Steps Down- Ruth Rendell

The Lighthouse- PD James

The Butter Did It- Phyllis Richardson. Because foodie mystery

Death of a Gentle Lady- MC Beaton

Other

Black Thorn White Rose edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling- fantasy short stories

Prospero’s Children- Jan Siegel- looks like decent fantasy.

 

The thing I will miss most about Partners and Crime is the book recommendations. Maggie asked what I like, and her recommendations look right on target.

 

Not that I have time to read anything but library science at the moment, but that will change.
