Books from the Backlog - Murder on Memory Lake

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  Murder on Memory Lake by J.D. Griffo

Blurb:  Alberta Scaglione’ s spinster aunt had some secrets—like the fortune she squirreled away and a secret lake house in Tranquility, New Jersey. More surprising: she’s left it all to Alberta. Alberta, a widow, is no spring chicken and she’s gotten used to disappointment. So having a beautiful view, surrounded by hydrangeas, honeysuckle, and her cat, Lola, sounds blissful after years of yelling and bickering and cooking countless lasagnas.

But Tranquility isn’t as peaceful as it sounds. There’s a body in the water—and it belongs to Alberta’s childhood nemesis. Alberta suspects foul play and when Alberta’s estranged granddaughter, an aspiring crime reporter, shows up, it only makes sense for them to team up and investigate . . .

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I'm trying to clear some books off my way overdue NetGalley shelf and this looks like a fun one.


  1. This does sound fun and I can relate to the NetGalley backlog as well. I will never catch up.

  2. I'll probably never catch up on my NetGalley overdue shelf but it's a nice idea :) I want to try this series, too. It looks good.

  3. This sounds like a good one! I am working really hard to make a big dent in my NetGalley shelf this year. You can do it!

  4. Well I know that cover speaks to me, would love to be relaxing on one of those chairs.
