So many books, so little time...

Thanks to all of you who have visited the store during these cold, wintry days. Despite the frigid temperatures, business has been brisk (pun intended). There is a plethora of new books that have either recently arrived at the store or will be arriving soon. There's a brief preview below. Some recent favorites of the Mystery to Me booksellers include Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, any and all of the Phryne Fisher books by Kerry Greenwood, and Anne Hillerman's Spiderwoman's Daughter (yes, it's Tony Hillerman's daughter). Some books that we're anxiously awaiting include Resistance Man by Martin Walker, Ruin Falls by Jenny Milchman, Murder in Pigalle by Cara Black and The Accident by Chris Pavone. Ahhh, getting ahead of the story. Here's a quick listing of some of what's new in February and early March:
