(Format shamelessly stolen from Nyssaneala)

The Summer Mystery Reading Challenge, sponsored by Reviewed by Liz was another fun challenge. The goal was to to read six mysteries by authors whose works you haven’t read before between June 1st and August 31st. 3 of my 6 books were also read for the Medical Mysteries Challenge and the remaining 3 were selected from my TBR list. Thanks to Liz and Bob for hosting this one.

My completed challenge books are:
Privileged Information by Stephen White
Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs
Final Diagnosis by Gary Birken
Kiss Mommy Goodbye by Joy Fielding
Isolation Ward by Joshua Spanogle
Crossroad Blues by Ace Atkins

The best book? Crossroad Blues is a moody, southern noir book with a fun new hero.

What book could I have done without? Kiss Mommy Goodbye was the biggest disappointment.

Any new authors? By definition all six challenge books were new authors for me.

Books I did not finish: I finished them all, but Kiss Mommy Goodbye was a struggle.

What did I learn? I learned I have at least 4 new authors to add to my TBR list (Stephen White, Kathy Reichs, Joshua Spanogle, and Ace Atkins) .
