On Amazon today, Books 4-6 for Kindle of Josh Lanyon’s Adrien English M/M crime series for only .99c. And Books 1-3 are only $7.99 for the 3.

If you don’t know them, highly recommended! Must be read in order as the relationship develops, and to me the relationship is much more important than the crimes.

For a reason which I can’t say without spoiling, there is something in the first book which perhaps is not typical of the rest of the series, though I still enjoy it and it’s a great beginning. But the books continue to get better and better.

Thanks for the info Sara. I'll have to order all of them then. I'd rather read the hard copies than the kindle, just my preference! Thanks also for leaving out any spoilers!  :o :P :laugh:

That will be pretty expensive! I did have some of them in paperback, but when they came out on Kindle (and Audible) I gave the books to a friend. But I love them so much that I’ve now bought all the books again! Some of them were quite reasonable on eBay. Be careful not to get the early editions of the first two. Josh revised them - the second one, A Dangerous Thing, quite extensively.

Anne Tyler

"A spool of blue thread"

(I just finished it.)

Brilliant. Highly entertaining. Wise. No spectacular plot, but really profound on day-to-day terms. Human life and its difficulties. Wonderful portraits. Simply beautiful.

Ing, I don't know HOW you find time to read too!! With all your writing, music, traveling and social Life, I'm amazed you manage to read anything! But, then again, maybe all writers are avid readers too, no?  ;D

I've got a strong reading recommendation.

It's Philippe Besson's novel "Arrête avec tes mensonges", which is currently translated - and will be released soon in the UK as "Lie with me".

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lie-Me-Philippe-Besson/dp/0241987091/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?keywords=besson+%22lie+to+me%22&qid=1556788601&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmr0

I won't say more. It's heartbreaking. I read it yesterday afternoon, in one single breath, it is moving and brillant. It's lingering in my mind.


(There are similarities to BBM and CMBYN, certainly, but it's a totally different kind of story. Playing in 1984. Written in 2017. Apparently Besson's 'real-life' drama.)

I did!

That makes it even more interesting.

(I read it in the French original.)

(In Germany, LIE WITH ME has been translated by a very prominent - and excellent - gay author, Hans Pleschinski. Whose own novels are remarkable.)

I’ve just seen Lie With Me recommended by English novelist, Patrick Gale, as well. But can I cope with heartbreaking?
