Haunted Computer

Just kidding. It's Monday, raining, and time to recommend some good books! This time I'm previewing some Kindle editions for your instant gratification. My friend and fellow librarian recommended this to me this morning. She says don't read it at night alone.

The author has written 13 novels and you can visit him at

I'm always reading a Hamish Macbeth mystery by M.C. Beaton. Many of my patrons say they are in love with the character, Hamish. Are you kidding, I want to BE him! Living in the north of Scotland in the little cottage with his dog and wildcat, tending his sheep and chickens and solving the occasional crime. Whats not to love about this series?  Got it on my Kindle for 6.99.

And I just finished this one.

This one kept me up reading into the wee hours of the morning. Disturbing, British crime fiction, serial killer. Val McDermid has written 25 novels. But I love the Tony Hill and Carol Jordan characters the best.

You must have a good tea while reading all this British fiction, right? This book was FREE on Kindle from Amazon.  Check it out, there are so many titles you can download for free.

Enjoy your week,
                            ~~Love, from me and Wilma~~

i do love a good scare once in a while, I will check out Creative Spirit - I quite like the cover. Also, Death of a Nag. I can understand what you mean about wanting to be the character Hamish - an idyllic setting.

Thanks for the recommendation for Chalk Girl. I loved it. I am now reading another of Carol O'Connell's books. I, too, want to be Hamish Macbeth...I own all his adventures. =D Keep up the good book hints. I'm glad I found you.

I've just downloaded Creative Spirit on to my Kindle. I was looking at your other post about The Chalk Girl, I will look out for that one, for some reason it is considerably more expensive for Kindle in the UK.
My dad recently passed on a number of Hamish MacBeth novels to me, I haven't read any yet, although I have read many of M C Beaton's Agatha Raisin novels, which I enjoy.
