Where are you?

Author Dana Stabenow had an interesting question on Facebook the other day. "You have been
transported to the location in the last book you read. Where are you?" I loved the question, but I'm going to change it around a little.

You have been transported to the location in the book you're reading. Where are you?

Now, we can find out where you are, and what you're reading.

I'm in Banff, Alberta, Canada, and Trafalgar, British Columbia. I'm reading Vicki Delany's latest Constable Molly Smith mystery, Under Cold Stone.

So, where are you?

Janet C said...

I'm in Heavenly, PA with Laura Bradford's "Shunned and Dangerous". Another great book by one of my favorite authors.

Vicki Delany said...

I'm in Barcelona circa 1950 in the Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Hope you're getting some skiing in in Trafalgar, Lesa.

Jane R said...

I'm in Brooklyn, NY with Erica Donato. I'm reading Brooklyn Graves by Triss Stein.

Harvee Lau said...

I'm in LA among the Asian ethnic groups in the cozy mystery, Murder on Bamboo Lane by Naomi Hirahara.

Lesa said...

I need to read Ordinary Grace, James. Another author friend said it was one of the best books she read recently.

Lesa said...

I love that series, too, Janet. One of my favorite cozy series.

Lesa said...

No skiing for me, Vicki. I'm one of the least athletic people you've ever met. But, I'm enjoying Trafalgar, anyways. (smile)

Lesa said...

Oh, I have Brooklyn Graves soeplace here. I'll have to go look for it, Jane.

Lesa said...

I have that book on a pile, Harvee, and I'm looking forward to it.

Lesa said...

This is fun. I like to see where you all are.

I'm reading The Coal Black Asphalt Tomb by David Handler so I'm in Dorset, CT

Beth Hoffman said...

Fun post, Lesa. I'm in the South renovating old houses with George Nash ... lol.

Hope you and the kitties have a terrific weekend.

Lesa said...

A lot of mysteries here, books I have on piles, and haven't had a chance to read. I'm about to head to Las Vegas with Sue Ann Jaffarian's Ghost of a Gamble. Quite a change from Canada.

Lesa said...

Why does it not surprise me that you're renovating old houses in the South, Beth? Hope you're enjoying it as much as I've enjoyed my armchair travels. The cats are going to be a little disappointed tonight when I go to dinner and the symphony (Gershwin) with a friend, and leave them behind.

I'm in Orkney reading Jeanne Dams' Shadows of Death. I just started, but I expect to be reading about some Stone Age excavations there--and death, of course!

I'm aboard Air Force One and Bath, NC reading Steve Berry's The Jefferson Key.

I seem to be moving between NYC, LA and various European cities while reading The Accident by Chris Pavone.

In the Texas Hill County with China Bayles in the newest mystery by Susan Wittig Albert

Patricia Stoltey said...

In in Denver, riding around in the Asphalt Warrior Murph's taxi. I'm reading Doctor Lovebeads by Gary Reilly (published posthumously) which is a finalist for the 2014 Colorado Book Awards.

I would like suggestions as to authors who produce mystery series as wonderful as those of Dorothy Sayres, Louise Penny and sometimes Susan Hill.

When you posted this question, I was in Maine at a clam bake with Clammed Up by Barbara Ross, but I finished it a few hours ago.

I guess now you could say I'm in limbo (which is funny) since I'm waiting until I get Ghost of a Gamble tomorrow at a signing to stat another book.

Judy Stewart said...

New York in the early 1900s with Rhys Bowen and Molly Murphy in The Last Illusion. Fun book.

Lesa said...

This was a fun question. I may have to ask it again sometime. Mark, I predict you'll enjoy Ghost of a Gamble. I'm reading it now, and it's hard to put down. I'd be reading it right now if my favorite CBS Sunday Morning wasn't on for the next hour and a half.

Lesa said...

Anonymous - That's a tough one. You have two masters there with Dorothy L. Sayers and Louise Penny. When Louise Penny first started writing, though, I recommended her books to readers who missed Dorothy Simpson, one of my all-time favorite authors. Simpson stopped writing in 2000. I also think Kate Ellis is underappreciated. You might want to look at her books.

I'm reading The Collectors by David Baldacci. It's one of his Camel Club thrillers set in Washington, D.C.

Fricka said...

I'm in Trenton, NJ with Stephanie Plum, Lula, Connie, Morelli, and Ranger.

Lesa said...

I've really enjoyed finding out where you are all visiting. Thanks for sharing!

Linda Rima said...

Elizabethan Enland with Amanda Carmack's Murder at Westminster Abbey (2nd in series)

Mark Baker said...

Lesa, I'm a huge Sue Ann fan, so I predict I will enjoy Ghost of a Gamble, too. :)

Lesa said...

Linda, I have both books in that series, and just haven't had a chance to get to it. I'll have to try it soon.

Lesa said...

It's nice to see that Berkley picked up her series, Mark.

dorfee said...

I am in Ireland in 920 A.D. reading Edward Rutherfurd's Princes of Ireland and in Jerusalem at the crucifiction of Jesus reading The Testament of Mary.

Lesa said...

You're doing some heavy reading, Dorfee. Thank you for letting us know where you are.

Margaret said...

I'm in Washington, D.C., at the present time and also during the Civil War, reading William Martin's wonderful "The Lincoln Letter." Am enjoying it so much, that I think I will watch "Lincoln" again. That film covers the Emancipation Proclamation, which the book does, too.
