Good Sunday morning! I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

Is it weird that I’m recommending a mystery titled Mystery this week? Anyway. The book is by best-selling author Jonathan Kellerman, and it’s #26 in the Alex Delaware series. (You definitely don’t need to read them in order, but they are all good.) I used to read Kellerman a lot and was glad to get re-acquainted with his characters.

In this book. super-psychologist Alex and his love interest, Robin, are out to dinner one evening when they notice a lovely young woman sitting alone at the bar, anxiously checking her diamond-encrusted watch every few minutes. The next day, Alex’s best friend (and police detective) Milo Sturgis is discussing a homicide, and it turns out to be no other than the lady Alex and Robin had seen the previous night. After recalling an angry-bodyguard-type outside of the restaurant, as well as some odd actions by the woman at the bar, Alex can’t help but get involved to help solve her murder.

Mystery is an engaging, fast-paced book with lots of moving parts that Kellerman ties together nicely at the end. It comes in at under 300 pages, so it’s an easy weekend read or something to dive into at the beach, assuming summer ever arrives. ‘Til next week, happy reading! 🙂
