A kick-a$$ mystery read

As you all probably know by now, I’m an AVIIIIIIID reader. You know, the kind that used to read with a flashlight under a duvet and asked her mom to lie she wasn’t home when friends asked if she went out to play. The kind who spends rainy afternoons in libraries that smell of parchment by an old oil lamp. I focus on classics and mystery, and today I’d like to recommend a sleek, elegant one that grips and keeps. I’d like to introduce Debbie De Louise, traditionally published author and award winner with her new launch, “A Stone’s Throw”.

Widowed librarian Alicia Fairmont needs answers …

After her husband is killed in a hit and run accident, Alicia travels upstate to his hometown of Cobble Cove, New York, hoping to locate his estranged family and shed light on his mysterious past. Anticipating staying only a weekend, her visit is extended when she accepts a job at the town’s library.
Secrets stretch decades into the past… 
Assisted by handsome newspaper publisher and aspiring novelist, John McKinney, Alicia discovers a connection between her absent in-laws and a secret John’s father has kept for over sixty years. But her investigation is interrupted when she receives word her house has burned and arson is suspected, sending her rushing back to Long Island, accompanied by John.
Back in Cobble Cove, cryptic clues are uncovered … 
When Alicia returns, she finds a strange diary, confiscated letters, and a digital audio device containing a recording made the day her husband was killed. Anonymous notes warn Alicia to leave town, but she can’t turn her back on the mystery—or her attraction to John. As the pieces begin to fall into place, evidence points to John’s involvement in her husband’s accident. The past and present threaten to collide, and Alicia confronts her fears…
Has she fallen in love with her husband’s killer?

  1. Ahh, books! I collect them faster than I can read them. I’m nearly done with Elena Ferrante’s Neopolitan series beginning with, “My Brilliant Friend.” The reader flows through the story about life in Naples as two girls grow up together as rivals and friends. Of course, I never just read one book at a time.

    1. Cuzz, thanks so much for the recommendation! I’m always glad to receive them here. I see a pattern there, cuzz – sisterhood, deep bonds. Oh, how much a person’s reads can say about them 🙂
