challenge pic final

Finally getting around to the wrap-up post! Y’all read all the good diverse mysteries, I’ve got so many new titles added to my TBR!

I’ve also finally pulled the name of the giveaway winner from my hat (yes I’m old school like that :D). Scroll down for the reveal!

First up, Monica absolutely rocked the challenge, reading awesome 7 books:

Look at Vishy’s excellent bookstack! He read 3 Kolaiyudhir Kalam by Sujata and the Byomkesh Bakshi mysteries in Picture Imperfect by Saradindu Bandyopadhyay.


@Aanandika Sood read the lovely Blanche On the Lam, which is a favorite of mine.


Natasha also read Blanche On the Lam as well as Keep Still by Eleanor Taylor Bland, part of the excellent Marti MacAlister series.

Nova Vita enjoyed the Raina Sun mystery Raining Men and Corpses by Anne R. Tan.

And Deepika read the The Plot Is Murder, and got 2 mysteries for the price of one!

I’ve also read a mystery Anne R. Tan, Just Shoot Me Dead, and another mystery Death by Dumpling by Vivien Chien. And inspired by Monica, I read Black and Blue in Harlem by Delia C. Pitts, which I reviewed here. And I almost finished Sectrets, Lies, & Crawfish Pies, the first Romaine Wilder mystery, and I’ll definitely read more in this series.
