On My Wishlist #44

This is a meme from Book Chick City. There are so many books out there that I want to read that this is the only way I can keep track! I feel like a little crime and mystery this week...
The Cat, The Quilt and The Corpse - Leann Sweeney
Publisher: Obsidian Mysteries
Jill's quiet life is shattered when her house is broken into and her Abyssinian, Syrah, goes missing. Jill's convinced her kitty's been catnapped. But when her cat-crime-solving leads her to a murdered body, suddenly all paws are pointing to Jill. Soon, Jill discovers that Syrah isn't the only purebred who's been stolen. Now she has to find these furry felines before they all become the prey of a cold-blooded killer-and she ends up nabbed for a crime...
This looks like such a cute mystery, plus I'm missing my cat so this should satisfy my pet longings! :)
The Spellmans Strike Again - Lisa Lutz
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
At the ripe old age of thirty-two, former wild child Isabel "Izzy" Spellman has finally agreed to take over the family detective business. The transition won't be smooth. First among her priorities as head of Spellman Investigations is to dig up some dirt on the competition, slippery ex-cop Rick Harkey. Next, faced with a puzzling missing-person's case she recruits an actor friend, Len, to infiltrate the home of an ageing millionaire as an undercover butler. Meanwhile, Izzy is being blackmailed by her mother to commit to regular blind dates with promising professionals - an arrangement that doesn't thrill Connor, Izzy's soon to become Ex-boyfriend No. 12. At Spellman headquarters, it's business as unusual. Doorknobs and light fixtures are disappearing every day, Mom's been spotted crying in the pantry and just when it looks like things can't go more haywire, little sister Rae's internship researching pro bono legal cases leads the youngest Spellman to launch a campaign that could spring an innocent man from jail - or land Rae in it. It just goes to show, however many Spellman Family Rules are put in place in an attempt to hold the family together, Izzy will never be able to follow Rule No. 1: Act Normal.
This is the fourth book in the Spellmans and really enjoyed the first three - esepcially the craziness that Izzy and her family get up to. They definitely put the fun in disfunctional family! :)
Naked in Death - J.D. Robb
Publisher: Piatkus
Crime and punishment is Lieutenant Eve Dallas's business. Murder her speciality. Named by the social worker who found her when she was a mere child roaming that city's streets, Eve Dallas is a New York police detective who lives for her job. In over ten years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows her survival depends on her instincts. But she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, a charismatic Irish billionaire - and a suspect in Eve's latest murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.
I know this series is very popular and I'm tempted to see if this suspense romance series is one I wish to invest in. 
So what are you wishing for this week? :)


  1. I have to try J.D Robb/Nora Roberts soon! I have a couple of her books to try. I like the look of your cosy mystery too.

  2. The 2nd one looks so fun :D That one I would want

  3. I've read the first two in the J.D. Rodd series they were really good and Roarke is very yummy but there is about a billion of them in the series and that kinda puts me off!
