Now that our read for August 2016 has been decided, it's time for everyone to nominate a book for our September read.

Nominate a crime/mystery/thriller/suspense book which is set in Scotland. True crime or cosy mysteries are included in this :)

This thread will be open until 5th August, then our nominations will go to the vote:) Good luck and have fun!

Authors and publishers, please don't nominate your own work!

Ooohhh you were saying you second the nomination? Sorry Cameron, I misunderstood! No it hasn't been up as a group read yet (though I have read and thoroughly enjoyed it)

You can choose another nomination too if you want :)

Thanks Brenda. But, I will stick with my original of Cold Granite. It has been on my TBR for a long time.

Rhondda Powling (bibliokat) | 105 comments My nomination: Published late last year, The Special Dead, (Rhona MacLeod #10) by Lin Anderson has been nominated for a few crime awards. Set in Glasgow this is a great series but each of her books stand alone as well.
