From Mangia to MurderFrom Mangia to Murder by Caroline Mickelson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first Sophia Mancini Mystery series is a lovely cozy mystery set in the post WW2 Little Italy. At the grand opening celebration of her and her brother's private detective agency the chef at the restaurant is killed. Though this is the era of 'a woman's place is in the home' it is Sophia who asks the questions and faces the dangers as the mysteries are solved.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As I laughed out loud quite a few times while reading this I had to give it 4 stars (also it is well written) - if it has the same effect on me when I read it again then it will get 5 . This is a retelling of the events of Pride and Prejudice as seen by the youngest Bennet - Lydia.

WATCHERS: VOLUME 1 - THE COMING OF THE KING by William Meikle


Narrated by C. S. Peryess

The old wall is a border: England and Scotland, South and North, light and darkness.
It is 1745, and the long-awaited night as come. The Bloodking calls his army to battle, and armed with the powers of the undead and the damned, he will bring them South to claim his birthright: The throne of Britain.
Only the old Watchers on the wall stand in his way. They, their swords, and their faith. But too much time has passed and the Watch has grown slack and ill-prepared for the coming war. Only Martin and Sean have seen the horrors that lie ahead for humankind. Only they have the power to stop it.
Now, two young officers of the Watch have a duty to perform:
Stop the Bloodking.
Or die trying.

The Invasion by William Meikle


They came in their thousands. We fought them as one. It started during a winter storm on the North Eastern Seaboard which brought with it a strange green rain. Where it fell, everything withered, died, and was consumed. The residents of remote outposts in Maritime Canada escaped the worst of the early damage, but that was a blessing in disguise, for they were left to watch as first North America, then the world, was subsumed in the creeping green carpet of terror. And that was just the beginning.

Island Life


On a small, sparsely populated island in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, a group of archeology students are opening what seems to be an early Neolithic burial mound. Marine biologist Duncan McKenzie is also working on the island, staying with the lighthouse caretakers, Dick and Tom, while he completes his studies of the local water supply.
One afternoon the three men are disturbed in their work by the appearance of a dazed female student from the excavation, who is badly traumatized. She tells of the slaughter of the rest of her party by something released from the mound.
Soon everyone Duncan knows is either missing or dead and there are things moving in the fog. Large, hulking, unholy things. Things with a taste for human flesh.
