April and May reading - sorry for the delay

13. The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware – a locked room mystery set on a yacht – creepy and atmospheric but a little far-fetched – rather annoying main character but interesting story – mystery book club selection that we mostly agreed was good but not great
14. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie – a locked room mystery set on a train – classic Christie that I read just before I found out about the new movie (and now I can’t wait!)
15. The Cruelest Month by Louise Penny – Inspector Gamache investigates another curious murder in Three Pines at Easter – continuing to learn about the charming setting – in this case the drama and intrigue at department headquarters threatens to overwhelm the story at hand
16. The Second Life of Nick Mason by Steve Hamilton – a petty criminal gets an early release from prison so he can do the bidding of a jailed kingpin – he attempts to get out of this arrangement with mixed results – interesting premise and fast-paced thriller – some characters are a bit hackneyed but the series has promise – mystery book club selection that we all liked though some had more quibbles than others
