    1. I think you'll like Deep End, it has a lot of the same snarkiness as Gauranteed to Bleed. I have to say I'm really looking forward to her next one!

    1. The Country Club Murders are good, and I think different from a lot of cozy. They're funny but there's a seriousness to them too- they're nicely different.

  8. I've never read these books, but, if they're as funny as their quotes, maybe I should lol.

    1. The Country Club Murders are great- they're set in the 70's and have that retro vibe. And Big Little Lies- loved that book.

      I was surprised how many contemporaries I read this year, since I usually read fantasy stuff.

  9. OK, Big Little Lies is on my TBR - but I clearly need to pick up these Country Club Murders. I love these quotes and a mystery, so it sounds like a great fit. Fun list!
