It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey. It's where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It's a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list. So hop on over via the link above and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading.

Books Read (click on titles for review): 
 Plum Pudding Murder by Joanne Fluke (12/18/12) [303 pages]
The Cat Who Came for Christmas by Cleveland Amory (12/21/12) [240 pages] 
Nine Man's Murder by Eric Keith (12/22/1) [240 pages] 
The Joy of a Peanuts Chirstmas: 50 Years of Holiday Comics! by Chrales M. Schulz (no review)

Currently Reading: 
The Female Detective by Andrew Forrester: features a number of different cases, each of which is narrated by G. She uses methods similar to those of her male counterparts, examining the scene of the crime, looking for clues, and employing skill and subterfuge to achieve her ends, all the while trying to conceal her own tracks and her identity from others. Her deductive methods anticipate those of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, who would not appear for another twenty years, and like Holmes, she regards the regular constabulary with disdain. For all the intrigue and interest of the stories, little is ever revealed about G. herself, and her personal circumstances remain a mystery throughout. But it is her energetic and savvy approach to solving crimes that is her greatest appeal, and the reappearance of the original lady detective will captivate a new generation of crime fiction fans
Books that spark my interest:
A Dark & Stormy Night by Jeanne M. Dams
The Evil That Men Do by Jeanne M. Dams
Murder in the Rue Dumas by M. L. Longworth
