Jessica Fletscher and Donald Bain – Coffee, Tea or Murder?
A Murder, She Wrote novel about a flight to London and the death of one of the participants. Good as always.
Emma Grey – Schuld war nur der Tee
Crime story set in England – mysterious deaths of seemingly random people, an unkown substance and a police officer with problems, a past, and alcohol.
Kai Meyer – Seide und Schwert
A fantasy adventure set in China with people who live on clouds, dragons, and the undying (and no not vampires).
Hape Kerkeling – Ich bin dann mal weg
One of Germany’s most famous and popular comedians on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela – it is not a comical book but it sure has some comical moments.
Rita Falk – Dampfnudelblues und Schweinskopf al dente
Two regional crime stories set in a small town in Bavaria: each crime is a little more absurd than the one before, but quite hilarious and funny.
Derek Landy – The Faceless Ones/ Die Diablerie bittet zum Sterben
The third installment of the Skulduggery Pleasant series – this time fighting the faceless ones, needing more than a little humor to survive this disaster. (We’re not retreating, we’re advancing in reverse 🙂 )
Susanne Fröhlich – Aufgebügelt
A chick lit for the older more mature chick: about being left, leaving and finding new beginnings.
Iny Lorentz – Das wilde Land
The third book in an emigration saga of a family who fled Germany to make their way in the new world and finding a place there.
