The Fiction Book for the November/December Edition: The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman
This really is a wonderful read, and what a debut from Richard Osman, The Thursday Murder Club (Viking Books) is a really entertaining old fashioned murder mystery novel, but with a twist that is warm and funny but also moving. Set in a retirement village and the four retired friends come together to investigate unsolved murders with information from the local police.
It is clever and warm and one that many will love to read during the dark autumn and winter months as you get to know the four friends as they try and solve murder mysteries, sometimes in a very unorthodox manner. But do they get results? Not to be missed and now we can look forward to at least two more follow up titles from Richard Osman. One of my fiction titles of the year!
The Non-Fiction Book for the November/December Edition: The Little Library Christmas by Kate Young
Kate Young is one of my three favourite food writers and The Little Library Christmas (Anima/Head of Zeus) just brings out the real joy of the festive time of year. Kate brings together 50 festive recipes some old and some new but also she shares some of her Christmas memories past and present and also some of her favourite books she likes to read during the Christmas season along with some fabulous photographs that just make this book the ideal gift for under the tree.
Some of the recipes you will know but there are some that you will want to try for yourself, I know I will be. With the cover being bright red, it will make you feel just that bit more festive. This is one Christmas cookbook that will be pulled off the bookshelf year after year.

One thought on “My November/December 2020 Book Reviews for Word Gets Around Magazine.”
I’m getting drawn towards The Thursday Murder Club and my husband fancies the audiobook – I think it will appear in the local charity shops soon after lockdown 2 ends so will probably pick up a copy then. Thank goodness for book bloggers or I’d have never realised it would be my kind of thing!
