Murder Most Persuasive
Murder Most Persuasive by Tracy Kiely (2000s)
This is the 3rd book in a series set in modern-day suburban Maryland near Washington, D.C. The author mimics the plot & characters of Jane Austen's novel Persuasion. Elizabeth Parker's great-uncle Martin dies shortly after selling his country home. The new owners of the home dig up the swimming pool, a body is discovered, which turns out to be the former fiance, Michael, of one of Elizabeth's cousins, Reggie. He had disappeared eight years before, when a huge sum of money was embezzled from Martin's company, where Michael was an officer. Everyone in the family assumed Michael had taken the money and left town after Reggie broke off their engagement. Now they must figure out who murdered Michael and why. A complicated picture of family dynamics emerges as you read this light, cozy mystery. An appropriate quote from an Austen book introduces each chapter. An enjoyable read, Austen fans may like the updating of her classic story. -- Added by ElizabethR on 03/08/2014

Murder on the Orient Express
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie (1930s)
I don't believe I had ever completely read this book before. I had seen a movie version but not finished the book. The book is definately more detailed. -- Added by Roundaboutgirl on 03/08/2014

Simply Irresistible
Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis (2000s)
This is a quick book to read when you just need some entertainment. Pretty predictable story, but I might be inspired to read some others in the series. -- Added by crashweaver on 03/08/2014

The Burgess Boys
The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout (1970s)
Covers several decades because it deals with family, memories, growing up, significant event in the two brothers' past. I REALLY liked this book and am surprised at the mixed reviews it has received on Goodreads. It's about family relationships, flawed people (who you may not like or you may have compassion for)and many ties within the family. It's about lies. It's about the Somali people who have come to their Maine community and a hate crime by a family member. Very interesting psychologically. Very well written. -- Added by bookaddict on 03/08/2014
