The latest and 4th in the Lady Sherlock series by Sherry Thomas will be out on the 15th of this month. I love this series.




Thanks for the heads up! :D

    The Sinister Mystery of the Mesmerizing Girl - the Athena Club Book 3 by Theodora Goss is out as of yesterday. I am just re-reading the book No. 2 to get reacquainted with all those characters   :)

    Thank you! I read the first two and really enjoyed 'em. Will have to see if this is in my library.

    edit: and it is! (one of them, at least) I have it on hold.

    The second of the Lady Darby mysteries is 'on sale' for $1.99.



    The first one is $2.99 --- I think that's the 'regular' price.

    Be sure to check your library first.  These are apparently new ASINs, I have both neither show the "already purchased" banner.

    Good point! I definitely had the first one; had read it. Hadn't gotten to the second because the price was too high and it was not in Overdrive. At least, not at any of my libraries. But my GR review indicated I'd enjoyed the first, so I jumped on this sale price. :)

    I meant your Amazon library, sorry I wasn't more specific!  Alas, my public library rarely has any of the books I want to read available for Kindle.

    According to Amazon, I already own books 1, 2, and 4 in this series and no others.  I'm sure that means each of those have been on sale at some point.  I'd hoped to fill in the gap with book 3 before starting the series (because I'm sure I'll love it per my rarely wrong KB-enabler-peeps!), but may need to go ahead and start reading.  It won't hurt so much to pay full price for Book 3 if I've gotten the others on sale first!

    No, I understood. I was just also pointing out that they're not carried in my local public libraries in kindle format. :)

    ... They are awesome. Fantastic. I love them as much as the St, Cyr. ...

    High praise, indeed!  I'll put them at the top of my list.  Thanks for the recommendation!

    Just managed to get the first St. Cyr book for 1.49.   8) ;D

    Now I just have to decide where in my endless TBR list I can slot it in. After waiting so long for the price to come down, I feel like I should read it sooner rather than later. But what if I get hooked and then have to buy the rest at full price because I can't wait?  :o  :o  :-\

    :( I'm really sorry about that --- because you're going to want to read all the rest, too. :D

    A cross we have to bear now, bestowed on us by the evil enablers in this thread!  So far I'm sticking with going through them very slowly with a single one-a-month splurge.  If there's ever a sale on any books down the line, I will jump on them, but that doesn't appear to happen historically.  Sigh ...

    Yep, I think I will have to adopt a similar strategy. If only I were immortal and extremely rich - this wouldn't be a problem .....  :o  ;D

    Crebel -- have you checked your libraries? 'Cause I've read most of them through overdrive. Though I gather for Linda that is not an option which is really too bad. :(

    #14 in the Captain Lacey series comes out December 17. I pre-ordered that one right away.  ;D



    Really enjoy this series too. And a lot cheaper too than some of the others 8)

    eta: And for those that don't know, Ashley Gardner is a pseudonym of Jennifer Ashley HR writer. Of the "Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie" fame.

    Gee, it looks like I bought the first in that series back in 2011 and haven't started it yet. :o :o

    sigh!

    So many books; so little time.
