News for you Mystery Fans

When I'm not reading kids' books or rhyming dictionaries, my favorite genre of reading is mysteries. Mostly I favor what are called "cozies," and I can't stand thrillers or novels of suspense, but occasionally I venture into mysteries that are darker or more realistically written than cozies. One not-what-I'd-call-cozy-mystery-though-some-do author whose work I enjoy is Julia Spencer-Fleming. She has a series of mystery that began with In The Bleak Midwinter. Some time ago, I signed up for email alerts from her site, so I received an email today:
