1.) Redefining Success - Still Making Mistakes by W. Brett Wilson;
2.) Showdown at Border Town – An Adventure of the Young Paul Martin by Caroline Woodward;
3.) Murder One by Robert Dugoni;
4.) Pierced by Thomas Enger;
5.) The Third Riel Conspiracy by Stephen Legault (I have not yet posted a review post. It will be my entry for "T" in the Alphabet in Crime Fiction meme. It is an interesting mystery set in Saskatchewan before we became a province and were still part of the Northwest Territories.);
6.) The Rising by Brian McGilloway (I have not put up a review post but it is coming. The book is a contemporary Irish mystery which I picked up in Dublin almost a year ago.); and,
7.) In the Garden of the Beasts by Erik Larson (I finished on June 29 and will have a review post shortly. It involves William E. Dodd and his family when he was the American ambassador to Germany from 1933 - 1937. It focuses on their first year in Germany. They arrived shortly after Hitler had taken power.)
Two of the books were non-fiction, Redefining Success and In the Garden of the Beasts. Both were excellent books.
Of the 5 mysteries my favourite was Showdown at Border Town. Caroline Woodward is a teenage author who crafted a good mystery set 60 years ago featuring a Canadian Prime Minister, Paul Martin, as a teenager. The series Leaders & Legacies, which has Prime Ministers in adventures at 12-13 years old, has reached 3 books with a fourth expected later this year.
Overall I read 14 books during the three months which is about average. With 7 new authors half of my books read were new authors to me. The percentage is alittle higher than I would expect to have in my reading.
This quarterly post continues to help keep my reading varied.
