THE DEAD RINGER
by M.C. Beaton

“An appropriately punny title, as the New York Times best-selling Beaton brings back Agatha Raisin to track the killer of Thirk Magna resident Millicent, who with identical twin Mavis belonged to St. Ethelred’s top-notch team of bell-ringers.”Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert

THE PINT OF NO RETURN
by Ellie Alexander

“Alexander has created an appealing cast of characters and a lovely setting for them to live in. Best of all, she treats the reader to a fascinating look at the skill and artistry involved in brewing craft beer.”Publishers Weekly

“The lively Oktoberfest frame, the craft-beer community, and the many fascinating details about beer and brewing are seamlessly woven through the story. The sympathetic Sloan, who is trying to create a new life for herself and her teenage son, and the secondary characters are vividly drawn, and the importance of family shines through this agreeable cozy.”Booklist

DEATH ON TAP

Thriller Thursday (10/5/17 Edition)

Cosmic horror! Agatha Raisin! Murder in a brewery! Here’s what we’re reading this #ThrillerThursday:

WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ by David Wong
“Wong’s wildly mind-bending third installment (after THIS BOOK IS FULL OF SPIDERS) of the adventures of protagonist David Wong is filled with the humorous horror readers have come to expect. While the story gleefully wallows in absurdity, thoughtful themes of addiction, perception, and the drive to do the right thing quickly emerge beneath the vivid and convoluted imagery. The plot’s rapid pace holds the reader’s attention to the truly bitter end.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

OLD SCORES by Will Thomas
When a Japanese diplomat is murdered and Cyrus Barker is the prime suspect, Barker and sidekick Llewelyn must work against the clock to find the real killer. “Series fans will rejoice to learn more about Barker, whose past life has thus far been murky. As always, the author draws out personalities to enlighten and entertain: even the dog, Harm, comes to life, along with inimitable servant Mac, the short-lived victim, and the series leads, who change with experience.” — Booklist, starred review

THE WITCHES’ TREE by M.C. Beaton
New York Times bestseller M. C. Beaton’s cranky, crafty Agatha Raisin—now the star of a hit T.V. show—is back on the case for the series’s 25th anniversary. “The usual cast of characters is present in this humorous cozy, which is sure to please Agatha’s fans and those who love village mysteries.” — Booklist

DEATH ON TAP by Ellie Alexander
A new hardcover cozy series set in a microbrewery in Leavenworth, WA, featuring a likeable sleuth and plenty of delicious food and drink (and murder, of course). “The author of the ‘Bakeshop’ mysteries (A CRIME OF PASSION FRUIT) introduces a new series with likeable characters, an atmospheric small-town setting, and a quirky adversary for the amateur sleuth. The engaging premise and pairings of beer and food should appeal to fans of Avery Aames’s ‘Cheese Shop’ titles.” — Library Journal readmoreremove
