    1. José Ignacio – Thanks for this excellent roundup. I hope you’re enjoying The Strangler’s Honeymoon. I like that series very much and I’ll be looking forward to your review.

      1. Thanks for your comment Margot, It might take some time since I can’t read as much as I would like right now but hope to finish it by the weekend.

    2. Ivy Pochoda keeps popping up in posts I’ve read over the last few months: I’ll definitely check it out. Happy reading in February!

    3. Great month’s reading by the sound of it. None of yours are on my shelves, though I have put Postoda’s on the wish-list. The others I will maybe take a rain check on – too many books already.
      I hope you enjoy your fix of Connelly and Mackay – enjoy your February reading!

    4. Sorry to get here so late because I always love your summary posts. I like to see what you have bought and will be reviewing… soon I hope. I want to read both Rubbernecker and Visitation Street, so glad you have such a high opinion of those books. Visitation Street I have already so maybe soon I will read it.
