is almost over, but there still is time for a few great summer reads before
Labor Day. Here are a few suggestions from members of The Stiletto Gang.
Gigi Pandian’s Accidental Alchemist
mysteries — The Accidental Alchemist, The Marauding Magician,
and The Elusive Elixir — I love the living gargoyle, Dorian
Robert-Houdin. His vegetarian recipes almost convince me to try that lifestyle.
Anything by Lori Rader-Day — The Black
Hour, Little Pretty Things, and The Day I Died — Her novels
will all keep you on the edge of your seat.
Lee S. Robinson’s Lawyer for the Dog
and Lawyer for the Cat — two great legal chick lit virtual journeys to
Charleston, SC. They will keep you laughing and turning pages.
little burned out on mysteries (perish the thought!) so this week, I’m reading
Kristin Hannah’s Firefly Lane; Lisa
Unger’s Ink and Bone; and Glen Erik
Hamilton’s Past Crimes (because you
can never not read mysteries).

Oh man. Whatever makes you
happy? I tend to go lighter in the summer, heavier in the winter. But I find
recommending books really hard. I would suggest people check out The Stiletto
Gang authors. 😛
haven’t read as many books as I’d like. I’ve been reading meal prep cookbooks.
I finally finished Death but Tiara and Death of a Bachelorette by Laura Levine.
Lee: I’m doing a lot of reading different things this summer. Mysteries,
of course, women’s fiction, and non-fiction. Some I’d recommend are: Flight
Patterns by Karen White; Death of a Bachelorette by Laura Levine, and The
Knowledge Illusion by Steven Sloman and Philip Fernbach.
