November isn't a big publishing month, or, at least my Treasures in My Closet piles don't reflect a big publishing month. However, there are treasures, including one of the best books I've read this year.
Murder, She Wrote: A Time for Murder by Jessica Fletcher and Jon Land is the fiftieth book in the series. Jessica always believes in helping budding journalists, but her latest interview leads her back to her very first murder investigation. She was a substitute English teacher at a high school. An overheard angry conversation leads to her role in the case. Now, all these years later, that case, and the retirement of a teacher, leads to additional murders. (Release date is Nov. 26.)
Tell Me No Lies is the second in Shelley Noble's Lady Dunbridge mystery series. Lady Dunbridge
was not about to let a little thing like the death of her husband ruin her social life. She's in New York City, ready to take the dazzling world of Gilded Age Manhattan by storm. When an early-morning visitor arrives, begging for her help, she finds herself dealing with a crisis involving the untimely death of an heir. (Release date is Nov. 5.)
