December Mystery & Thriller Good Reads

Hello Friends and welcome to the blog today.


“December is a bewitching month.
The grey of cold teases
to explode into something worthwhile,
into a dream of cold,
a starlight shower you can taste,
a cold that does not chill. –
Joseph Coelho, A Year of Nature Poems

It’s Friday …what are you getting into this weekend?  I hope you’re being productive, enjoying some holiday activities, and checking in with friends and family.

Can you believe it’s December?  As the world rushed to get here (bypassing Thanksgiving) by selling Christmas in October, will we again zip through this month or slow down to enjoy each and every day?  I love the winter months and while I still have several things on my to-do list I want to take the time to enjoy the season.

I’ve been really swamped this week with work and other home tasks so I haven’t had the time I would normally devote to the blog or think about the Podcast.  I’m hoping to get my December Calendar printables out today, so check back later on for that one.  With all my rambling out of the way, it’s time for some Holiday mysteries.

Today I’m sharing some Mystery & Thrillers released this month (or earlier).  I’ve actually completed my Good Reads Challenge with one extra book in tow that I’m reading now.  I just love Audible because it allows me to work and listen to a good book.  I’m almost done with my latest book called “Lock Every Door” by Riley Sager.
