Agatha Awards - 2007 Finalists

I really like Agatha Christie's books and I have one shelf filled with them. So when a L. shared the finalists for the 2007 Agatha Awards it has ocurred to me those titles might be something I would enjoy. Here are the finalists for 2007:

Best Novel
* The Penguin Who Knew Too Much by Donna Andrews
* Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen
* Hard Row by Margaret Maron
* A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny
* Murder with Reservations by Elaine Viets

Best First Novel
* A Beautiful Blue Death by Charles Finch
* A Real Basket Case by Beth Groundwater
* Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn
* Prime Time by Hank Phillipi Ryan

The only author I've read before is Donna Andrews but I do have Deanna Raybourn's books in the TBR pile. All the others are new to me authors but if they write in Agatha Christie's style they might be worth trying...


  1. The only one of those that I have read is the Raybourn, and that was definitely excellent.

  2. I really must move that one up in the TBR pile!

  3. When you read any of them, tell us! I'm an Agatha Christie fan myself! :)

  4. I have read several and if I were to recommend one or two it would be: Deanna Raybourn Silent In the Grave and Rhys Bowen Her Royal Spyness.


I love to chat about books and stuff and I would love to hear from like minded readers. Please do leave me a comment :-)
