June 2012 Reads

Royal Flush
#3 in the "Royal Spyness" series
by Rhys Bowen

It's summer, so I want to read something fun and easy.  I love this series! They are set in 1930s England (and Scotland in this case), about an amateur sleuth who happens to be 34th in line for the throne.  Very cute.  Recommended to anyone who likes historical mysteries, stories about royalty, and humor.

by Curtis Sittenfeld

Died in the Wool
#10 in the Tori O'Shea Mysteries series
By Rett MacPherson
I've mentioned this series before.  Cozy mysteries about a sleuthing genealogist in a small town in Missouri.  I liked this one a lot! It had to do with the history of a house and a family that lived in it during World War I and the circumstances of their deaths.
