Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – New Book on the Shelves – Trudy’s Diary (Libraries of the World Mysteries Book 1) by Amy M. Reade

Delighted to share the news of the latest release by Amy M. Reade available on pre-order for April 16th, Trudy’s Diary (Libraries of the World Mysteries Book 1)

About the book

Daisy Carruthers moved to Washington, DC, from New York City following an emotionally draining murder investigation, little knowing she would soon be involved in two more. But when her boss and her best friend come under suspicion for killing two adulterous lovers, Daisy has no choice but to help when they ask.

And when she comes across a diary and an old dime novel with suspiciously similar stories and unknown origins, she knows all the mysteries are somehow connected.

​Can she figure out the identity of the killer–or killers–before it’s too late?

Head over and pre-order the book:

One of the recent reviews for Murder in Thistlecross on Goodreads

Feb 22, 2019 Anna rated it Five Stars

What an absolute treat it was to spend time with Eilidh, Sylvie and her husband Seamus once again. This is the third book in the Malice series and a true treasure. Eilidh has left the Scottish Highlands behind when she divorced her husband Callum after he went to prison. Since then she has been living in the village of Thistlecross in Wales. She has barely worked in her life but she has been the very successful estate manager of a 15th century castle. She adores working for Annabel Baines, whom she considers not just her employer but a good friend. When Annabel’s sons arrive for a visit, the warmth and happiness of the castle is replaced with doom and gloom.

As guests and staff alike start dying, Eilidh needs to keep her whits about her, not only to figure out what exactly is going on but to keep herself alive.

As always Ms. Reade has characters that are extremely likable and there are ones that you are just not happy with because they are so full of malice. Her words are so clear and descriptive that you feel as if you are sitting on Eilidh’s shoulders and seeing things unfold through her eyes. There is not in your face blood and guts, it’s very subtle and it delivers a much stronger punch that way. She also explored the horrors of drug abuse, the symptoms and the effects on the individual and the family in a very informative and sensitive way.

It was very hard to say goodbye to characters that I’ve grown to love in the Malice series. Maybe one day our paths will cross again

  1. Congrats Amy! I am shamelessly behind in getting to your books, of which I only have 4 on my Kindle! This one doesn’t seem that it would be as scary as some of your others. Am I wrong? Lol 🙂 ❤
